Megumi Nakajima Mamegu da Wasshoi Live DVD PV.

On a note, she's improved on that Be MYSELF song but nope, that song and dance still make me facepalm.
Can't say much for Tenshi no Enogu (Dammit, I still feel letdown ;_; ). And What 'bout my star @ Formo is pretty nice to listen to live.

Actually, can somebody help me find a link to a site where I can buy this DVD because I'm interested in it I don't know if we're going to get the Yoko Kanno concert on DVD so I might as well settle for this unless the Kanno concert is announced to be released on DVD

I don't think it's out yet...

So while you're waiting, you should pick up the May'n DVD (if you haven't already). There's too much May'n Street stuff on it, but you can skip that and focus on May'n being completely Sherylicious.

And, um, duetting with Basara.

OH yeah, I forgot that May'N also had her live DVD out. I'm gonna pick that up when I get the chance.

I can't say I'm a big fan of either girl's non-Macross-related material (although I like "Nostalgia" and "Glorious Heart." And May'n's version of "Papa Don't Preach" is a hoot, but for all the wrong reasons).

But even then, I think the DVDs are worth buying just because the Macross stuff is SO good.

Personally, I'm looking forward to 2018, when they'll probably make some kind of "Super Dimension 10th Anniversary Reunion" concert or something like that.

Grace and Leon's cover on 0-G Love was....creepy...and that's putting it mildly.

Hmm...I never really liked 0-G Love actually.
To be honest, it sounded like something you can hear in a commercial on TV. XD

...sigh.
Am I the only one who can't stand how fake she is >_>
I mean, while I feel May'N is like...a premature hag (As much as I liked her singing, the way she acts is so...old ;_; Sometimes I think she's in her late 40s just because of the way she carries herself and the weird tacky things she wears) Nakajima is like...someone trying to be an animu character 24/7 and sort of failing.

I really wish she'd stop doing those retarded dances.
Ranka dancing is weird enough already, Nakajima doesn't have the proportions to pull the KIRA dance off.

I also hate how she's mauling the lolita wear. She literally looks like some random person who tried it in a store, but got rushed out to do a live.
The other outfits aren't any better...they don't even match the songs she's singing...

"Be Myself" dance at the end seems...slightly better, probably because it has more bobbing and someone finally realized her legs aren't long enough to do cutesy dances, and finally gave her a more slimming/elongating dress + lowered to camera to make her look taller. That and she doesn't have that fugly ass santa hat on her damn head.

Finally, is it just me or has she decided to switch back to lighter moe singing as opposed to her last live videos where it seemed like she was going to sing on a lower key?

...sigh.
sigh sigh sigh.
I'm really sick of her.
I think I have more chance of liking ranka than I'd ever like nakajima.

Oh yes definitely better than her cover of Tenshi no Enogu but still not a patch on Akino Arai's original version. Still considering that Aimo was Voices lite she should've been able to give it a good crack.

@ippus, As much as I dislike Ranka, my view on NakaMegu is so-so. She can sing, and has a good voice...and I like a few of her MacF songs (few being, Aimo O.C., What 'bout my star @Formo, Ai Oboete Imasuka ~bless the little queen) but that's just it for me. Personally, there's nothing really that special about her voice that stands out (In that No Limit song, I couldn't tell who was Megumi!), as opposed to some others, especially those here in the Philippines, where most of 'em are heavily biased on NakaMegu, simply because she is half-Filipina and that's all. >.> *facepalm* That's my country for ya.

Also, I think it's wise you err...tone it down. 6^^

I don´t know, I am not very enamored of her singing style, but I really think dissing her personally like this goes a bit far.

I sort of noticed.

Actually it seemed to be the same case back when Highschool Musical came out and everyone went ballitzo over Vanessa just because she is filipina. Your national pride surpasses that of our egotistical South koreans, and hoenstly, they're pretty ego high ]DDDDDDD

Honestly I'd LIKE to be nice. That way I can draw megpoid without feeling the urge to /wrists every 5 seconds. I don't think I would even feel so annoyed by Nakajima if she didn't post those...horrendous...videos...

Those terrible snippets where she sits there talking to the camera on "seiyuu-mode" and clapping her hands while going "YYEEEEEYYYYYY" every second she can get. i mean, from seeing what she's like on the candid moments, she's totally NOT that cutesy animu girl =_= Quiet maybe, sweet POSSIBLY, but she's so NOT squeeky and sugar overdose cutesy I-am-Ranka *shudder*

The song is ironic. The song is ironic. The song, is so, ironic.

Actually I'm also from the Philippines, and I was also one of the first people who kept bashing her singing. Her 7/7 live version of Voices though IMO was pretty good. Ao no Ether in the same concert was also in a deeper tone, and I have heard NO ONE who went to the concert give any bad review of her performance. Her recorded version of Ao no Ether made me very annoyed that I could hardly listen to it without thinking of how flat her voice was.

That given, the effect of Megumi's constant cutesy parade on me is actually numbing. Initially I choked on it, and even hated it, but now I feel as if that's just how her producers want her to be, so we should all let it be and not take it against her personally. Macross F is indeed a well-sold franchise, and if they intend to ride along with its popularity by making her evoke the "feel" of Ranka, then we can't do anything about it.

For her benefit, I still think she's pretty, and I still think that her voice has a lot of potential because of its nice bell tone. But she's no Charice Pempengco

I find all this personal animosity vs. Megumi a bit unbecoming, to be honest. I criticise Ranka more than most, but Megumi herself seems to be a nice person and doesn´t deserve to be excoriated such.

Yeah me too.

I'll be posting a sample here of how she sang Ao no Ether in 7/7 just to show that she's actually improved as a singer, just give me a bit...

Heh, not to mention Megu is actually ... kind of cute

Although I can understand that to some fans... the image stuck.
