Is the link to the results only? I can see the results but can't vote. Anyway, I prefer May'n's voice better.

You may need to list this poll in more locations that just here. I have a feeling fans for either singer are probably collected in certain forums. I would think people here would vote overwhelmingly for May'n/Sheryl.

I initially posted this in the Gabriela Robin Blog, where all fans go to - the percentage is the same. Around 75% for May'n. Now it's posted here in Animesuki and Macross World as my signatures. I'll go ahead and post it in YKDB (Kanno forum) and Maayas.net (Maaya forum).

Will you post it on LJ also? There's a lot of Megumi fans on LJ Well, at least there was before Northern Cross and those two epic Aimo...

Anyway, kudos to you for putting Sheryl/May'n first. It saved me the trouble of choosing and I just had to click the 'vote' button

How considerate of you

I put it in alphabetical order. And the results of the poll are listed I think... with highest votes first.

I don't have a LJ account, because I don't like the layout of that place. My colleagues might scoff me if they find out that I made an account there and I'm using it (yes, I'm a sheep) :P But you guys could post it there too, I won't mind

Lurker here. Liking the new OP. Here's my ramblings on Sheryl and Ranka:

First off, I don't know why, but May'n sounds like Mizuki Nana for some odd reason... I can't put my finger on it... Must be the "Diva Song" singing thing... (Mizuki does the powerful OPs for Nanoha and voices a child diva in Shugo Chara)

After hearing the new OP, I'm feeling alright with May'n. Her parts in Lion were pretty good. Still not feeling Northern Cross tho. To me, Sheryl's voice is all about maturity (take that as you will...) and soul, and I only really felt that in Diamond Crevasse. The rest of her songs sound too much like she's either got something in her throat (very croaky) or leaving part of her voice in her throat (very contained). (I wonder if that's the Japanese way of showing soul/passion in singing?) I wouldn't mind it if she were singing something less poppy or in a group (ala Jam Project), but since she's a diva/soloist, there probably won't be opportunities like that...

Nakajima gives me Bonnie Pink vibes, but her voice is a lot lighter...

Ranka, on the other hand, is the innocent n00blet singer, the moe blob of cuteness and purity. Her voice nails that in every note, and that's probably why I like Megumi's songs more (sans her cover of Diamond. That never sounded right to me. Such a "big" song for such a sweet/pure voice... >.< Someone was trying to make a point, I suppose...). Nakajima's also a debut seiyuu and singer at the same time, so I "cut her more slack," I guess, than May'n who only does the singing voice of Sheryl.

You know, maybe if Sheryl was singing something like... Enka or Soul (Respect, anyone?) or something, it would sound better to me. Randomly, an Ali Project-esque song would actually be interesting to hear with May'n vocals...

Nakajima should just stick to pop, though rock (ala Ash like Snow) would be interesting with her voice. She doesn't have the warmness/maturity, for jazz, tho...

(Back to lurking for me...)

I think the one May'n sound like is Ayumi Hamasaki. I don't know but in Northern Cross, she sound like Ayu's voice in her rock songs (like Because of You or GAME). And Megumi's true voice is great, I hope that she won't use Ranka's soulless voice anymore.

I never pinpointed why Sheryl's songs (voice actually) bothered me until I heard Northern Cross, which really reminds me of parts of Ayumi Hamasaki - Evolution. It's too bad, cause Northern Cross has nice instrumentals.

Yes, you're right. Sheryl IS too awesome when she does Enka.

I happen to like Ayu's Evolution and May'n's Northern Cross a hell lot.

Diamond Crevasse is the best anime song I've ever heard. I don't really like Northern Cross. Diamond Crevasse is where it feels May'n is giving it her all.
