The full version of Diamond Crevesse and Don't Be Late is pretty awesome.

Yup, the translation for that is exactly what you think it is, directly from Zero.

prays the story won't pull a Zero-wreck if it ever goes into that.

Don't Be Late full version is pretty damn awesome, this will easily overtake Triangler on my shuffle. Still insist this should've been the OP theme but I can understand why it wasn't due to the 3 month wait. Oh and this as well

Maaya Sakamoto's "Triangler" opening theme song for the Macross Frontier anime series rose to #3 on Oricon's sales chart for all Japanese singles last week. It was the first time that one of Sakamoto's songs has reached the top three on the weekly singles chart. The single, which was composed and arranged by Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, Macross Plus), sold 31,270 copies so far. It actually reached #2 on the daily singles chart on both April 25 and April 26. Sakamoto had previously sang themes for Escaflowne, Card Captor Sakura, Wolf's Rain, and several other anime titles.
Will be interesting to see how the Sheryl and Ranka cd singles compare to this in sales.

I've just donwloaded the full versions from Don't be late & Diamond Crevasse.
I just have to say that I love both song. Specially Don't be late! (I like the strong May'n vocals). I hope to hear more of her music.

Goodbye (^^)v

Ranka's version easily outshines Cheryl's. I always wondered what if Macross had two idols. I guess we'll finally see what happens.

The difference is so marked that I'm actually wondering if the Sheryl version is deliberately mis-produced in order to make Ranka sound even better than she is. I mean really, the Sheryl version is just kind of a mess, and Mayn can sing better than that (see: Long Long Goodbye), whereas the Ranka version is a bit blandly pop, but it's still properly produced and the fact that she can sing helps a good deal.

No, it just seems like the Cheryl version is in the Yoko Kanno "Macross Plus" vein of songs. It sounded like a Sharon Apple song. Ranka's, on the other hand, was more Macross 7 Fire Bomber!

The Ranka version is better but mainly because of the live vibe to it with the different instruments and the crowd clapping just added to that greatly. Switch the vocalists (they would obviously sing differently with the situations reversed) and I doubt it would change my opinion in that the Formo version is better. Ranka version is like a 5/5 while Sheryl is a 4/5 just off what I've heard in the anime.. who knows the full vesions from the OST might make me like the Sheryl version better. I really dig the Sharon Apple type vibe in that song..

I consider Ranka and Sheryl to be both unique. They have their own styles and I like both.

that.....makes so much sense.




I'm also puzzled, if Sheryl has an Animu Spiritia we the viewer will see it, because everyone has animu spiritia, but only strong animu spiritia can be seen without amplification, unlike with normal people, where it will make it visible, but it won't have much affect.

I wonder if it depends on the type of song they sing?


Either way, i like them both. although Ranka version just ooze enthusiasm, while sheryl is so sultry.

it's good.

It will be interesting to see what kind of direction Ranka takes with her music when she turns pro (and all signs point to this as the next step). I wonder what her influences are. Obviously, Minmay is an influence, but I think Fire Bomber could be one, too, given Ozma's apparent penchant for the group (he played it in his car) and her Fire Bomber-tinged version of "What bout my Star."

I don't think you can base her version of what bout my star in episode 5 as her future direction, all she did was sing, everything else was an impromptu performance by Deculture loving Zentradis. Aimo is the best thing to go off atm...

it's good.

In Macross 7 only Nekki Basara is the only one with the light and shockwave effects when facing a Protodevlin. Without equipment.

Song energy only became visually obvious because of the feedback equipment developed by Dr. Chiba which somehow exploits fold physics.

Which somehow explains how Emilia Jenius was heard far away from Macross 7.

While Sheryl follows more current music styles similar to Yoko Kanno's electronics style from MacPlus, almost all of Sheryl's songs so far has the similar beat.

I like both of them, however the more I listened to Ranka reminds me more of Mylene singing. Slow and soft while Sheryl is more similar to Emiriya and Basara, fast pace and louder singing.

Just the 1st 10 secs of the acoustic part of Don't be Late reminds me of Planet Dance from Fire Bomber.

Awesome music as always from Macross series.
