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.
“Jesus Christ!!!”…that’s all I have to say…why?!?!? I seriously made freakin loads of mistake this time around, I never expected such an event where I couldn’t even cover half of what was going on. I learn from today I really needed a back-up partner/assistant for an event such as AFA09. It was truly a successful event, no doubt about it and I have to give 2 thumbs up. So I’ll show a bit of stuff of what I could really get on Day 2 of AFA 09. I know it’s a little late but I just got back to Malaysia and I really need time to look through everything.
Looks like it’s going to be one of those hard to get the artist autograph session again this year. AFA has release a Lucky Draw System for 20 winners who will get a CD/DVD provided by AFA and signed by their favourite artist on stage. Only those with the I LOVE Anisong passes are able to participate in this Lucky Draw. What do I have to do to get those ink, *sad face* I sense a kow tow performance coming soon…
May’n (May Nakabayashi/中林 芽依), well known as Sheryl Nome – Songstress of the Galaxy – from the popular anime series Macross Frontier turns 20 today. On the weekend she was doing a performance for the Macross Crossover LIVE and sang all the songs for Macross F and also the new single for the upcoming movie in November entitled pink monsoon. What’s cool is that the single was released on sale on her birthday so it makes a great event for her to remember.
