Looks like I still haven’t had enough of May’n fever, this time with her Sheryl Nome counterpart in Macross Frontier Movie album cover entitled Gekijouban Macross F -Itsuwari no Utahime- Insert Songs Album – Universal Bunny. I’ve been listening to both Styles and Universal Bunny album and I could picture back her concert and dance on stage. I really love her tracks here as it was more Anisong style.
Just got my copy of May’n First Full Album cover called Styles today. I’m pretty sure Bagman will be dieing to get it later on in the mailbox. There are many new tracks inside which I recently got to hear them live at AFA09 on the weekend in Singapore. Well compared to her previous Mini Album this was more to original style of May’n. The only anime like tracks in this album is are Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare (OP theme SHANGRI-LA) and Welcome To My FanClub’s Night! -Styles version- (OST Macross Frontier). Surprisingly Pink Monsoon wasn’t included maybe because it was produced earlier and specifically for the new Macross Frontier Movie:The False Songstress (Diva) which is out in cinemas throughout Japan.
Let me say this for a start, AFA09 is a once in a lifetime experience for everyone, compared to AFA08 and many others I’ve attended in my years, this was an event which tops the list as the best! For those who attended the event; First timers, I hope you guys love all the activates they had. It was seriously a learning experience especially if you are here for the very first time; Returners, welcome back and I know a lot of you have been busy as I’ve been looking through some websites and blog about how much fun (or not) you guys had. So let me tell you my “Journey through the Decade”…wait, sorry I meanJourney to AFA09 Singapore. Warning it’s long so get yourself a cup of refreshments and some snacks to go with it.
p/s (27/11): I’ll upload photos this weekend. The freakin internet connection back in Malaysia is playing PMS once again. I super miss REAL speed like back in Singapore and the time I lived in Australia. NEVER TRUST MALAYSIA’s ISP!!!
One of the highlights of AFA09 this year, Yoshiki Fukuyama, member and guitarist of the famous JAM Project and also lead singer for Macross 7 comes to Singapore for the first time while May’n/Sheryl Nome is back once again to AFA, Singapore for a second year running to perform at AFA09 I LOVE Anisong, Suntec City CC. I was actually persuade to buy the front tickets by my friend because he was a seriously huge fan of both. I’m not quite a big fan but they are my favourite artist in the anisong industry. For me May’n was more of my choice while Fukuyama gave me a very nostalgic feeling.
May’n is back one again with her new single for the upcoming movie Gekijouban Macross Frontier -Itsuwari no Utahime-. The single is entitled Pink Monsoon which brings a slow funky beat towards the song. It’s a nice track to listen to as the catchy beat does get to you.
The Macross Frontier series will hit the movie screens in Japan which will be compiling the full 25 episodes. Due to release in November 2009, we’re gonna have some extra footage and also new songs by Sheryl Nome/May’n and Ranka Lee/Megumi Nakajima. Also confirmed, is the second movie so there’s gonna be 2 movie release. Macross Frontier marks 25th Anniversary for Studio Nue. Can’t wait to listen to the tracks as I really love the songs done in the Macross franchise.
Can’t get enough of Ranka Lee? Think your new VF-25F Valkyrie needs to get some ~Kira*? Well Bandai has released a special Ranka Lee Deculture Decal for the VF-25F. Talking about pimpin’ my ride, this is pimp my Valkyrie just with out those sound system and nos tanks you could fit in. I quite like the design they gave it and the outlook looks really like a Valkyrie is going to perform on stage for Ranka-chan. I recently got this baby from the shops earlier this week but after I had my eyes on this I was thinking to myself, should I get one more if they were going to release a Sheryl Nome version.
