I ♥ Macross (Frontier)  
Anyone who read my twitter regularly knows that I (barely) managed to catch the giant Macross Crossover live concert last week!! I say barely as in Adrian invited me at the last second since he had two tickets, and I thought that I would have to work. But since it takes place just a few minutes away from the studio and sensei let us go home about an hour before it started, I made it!! It's a miracle!! XD Weonly had a day and a half off, and I spent the first half day (err, night) going to this 4-hour live!! ^-^;;

It was really fun!!! Well, at least the parts where Sheryl and Ranka's singers sang. May'n has such a great voice, I'm really excited for her first full-album debut next month!! Although I get the impression that she's a bit like a certain former Tenimyu singer who just happens to be really elitist just because he thinks that he 'made it', despite that most people have no idea who he is (Sorry, Kimeru... well, not that sorry). But who really knows what May'n is like? Hopefully I'm not right... but if I am, they sure picked the right girl to play Sheryl!

After Sheryl and Ranka, they sang Happy Birthday to May'n and brought out a giant taiyaki with candles on it! Well, Sheryl's seiyuu did! I didn't know that there was a different person doing the voice.. Speaking of Frontier.... Nakajima Megumi, who does Ranka's voice and singing, was dressed in the most hideous yellow dress and 80's side ponytail EVER... ^^;; VERY VERY Ranka. Or 6 year old girl. Both, I guess.. ^^;; Though I love her speaking voice!

They also had the singer/seiyuu for Minmay (she looks a lot younger than she is!), the band people from Macross 7 (um, I don't remember the name.. Firebird or something like that? I never watched 7and honestly, couldn't stand this part of the live), and some other people from other Macross series that I can't remember... LOL, I'm not a very good fan, am I? I LOVED Macross Frontier, and that's enough for me. ;D So I really enjoyed that part of the live (the firsthour and a half or so). The live was 4 hours long though, so I just relaxed while people rocked out around me. XD

Now what I'd really like to see.... a concert with real Sheryl and Ranka singing!! Or even just Sheryl. ^__________________^

TIRED!! *clonks out* I need some time off, but no time off for the weary!! Work to do! I should be able to leave the studio in a few days... at least I hope so! Not that I'll have any time off because I have filming coming up and gads of things to work on. But just gonna work work work hard until I make my dreams happen!!!!!!!!!!!!! Promise!!

I don't think May'n is like that at all. From what I saw when I went to her live at ZEPP TOKYO (front rowwwww~), she's very sincere and loves her fans. She was talking with everyone and made sure to thank every section, left, right, middle, first floor, second floor, etc before it was over. I was quite touched to see her dedication to her fans.

I'm glad you had the opportunity to take a break from work and really let loose XD!! Sounds like that was an amazing concert. I havn't watched any Macross in a long time- but now I feel like I should start watching it again.

Good to see you had some fun despite your hectic schedule.

I met Mari Ijima (Lynn Minmay) at the first anime convention I went to. She is a really neat person actually... speaks pretty good English, does acting in Californa now...

But... that's not the point of my comment!


I'm so jealous that you got to see Fire Bomber! One of my biggest goals in Japan sadly was to see Yoshiki Fukuyama play his guitar and sing with a sound more explosive than missiles! Sadly, I didn't get the chance. (I'll only be back for a week when I get back from this cruise.) So yeah, definetly really jealous!

(He probally sang Burning Fire too! *cries*)

Uwa! I'm glad that you enjoyed the Macross concert~! I've just gotten into Macross Frontier through a friend a couple months back and just began cosplay around two different versions/costumes of Sheryl and gah-I do no justice of course and I reeeeally look up to both May'n and Megumi Nakajima. They're both very talented singers with amazing stage prescence~

O_O seeing the REAL Sheryl and Ranka must have been amazing~! Gah! I've seen clips of May'n's lives-she really is a diva on stage. xP I think that's just how she is, confidence is a huge thing in the industry, but yeah, I hope it doesn't take over her.

If you read May'n's blog you'll see that she's actually pretty normal. I think she's a sweetheart!

There was a Macross Frontier-only tour last year that just hit DVD.. it's so amazing. Wish I could've seen it live myself, but will have to settle with buying the Bluray next month.

I adore Macross Frontier!! Especially the most recent series. Ranka is seriously so adorable...I'm cosplaying and singing as her for a karaoke contest on Halloween. ^^

I haven't been posting at LJ very much either. Sorry I haven't stopped by. School is busy.

You have such a packed schedule, but I'm glad you were able to go to the Macross Crossover concert, and enjoyed it.

I must have missed something. What happened to your previous desk? I hope you can find one you like.

You have shared some nice pictures. Thanks! You are a beautiful woman.

For the dress with the giant monster, my first thought was "What? How strange!" After that, I keep wondering how they came up with such a design and if anyone would want to wear that.

That is interesting about the azuki Pepsi and small apples. I've never seen or hear of them.

OMG. Don't even start. I LOVE Macross. Isn't Ranka (Megumi) amazing? Hell, they're all amazing! XD

First time to visit
My name's A MAN, a big fan of Macross
Just being regretful that I have no chance to get to the concert.
By the way, just wanna know why you could not stand the band from Macross 7.

Actually I am a big fan of Macross, including the SDF, 7, PLus and Frontier. If you talk about songs, I love the 7's so much. The band is called Fire Bomber (not Fire Bird). Their vocal, Nekki Basara, is one of the best singers in the JAM Project.

Well, never mind.
