Same here~ Otherwise, I'd be seeing it in the cinema!

The preview isn't bad, but I'm not really digging the 3D model they've shown for Sheryl. It reminds me too much of MMD, but in nicer proportions and somewhat smoother.

Love the clip of Sheryl playing piano, though.

Totally...I hope it's more of the latter and less of the former...

I got to the theater twenty minutes early, hoping to get some Macross swag, but there was none. All the stickers and posters and movie programs were for Harry Potter. Feh.

While hanging out in the lobby, along with a few young geeks, a number of 40-ish men who were clearly old-school fans, and a whole lotta high school girls, I stood near the "Wings of Farewell" Ranka-as-Magical-Girl poster. Four high school girls walked up to it, cooing, "Kawaii!" And then they took pictures of it. I guess we now know what demographic that poster appeals to.

The theater was nearly full, but not completely. There were two empty seats behind me, and a few others scattered around. But it was a big theater (oddly, it was EXACTLY THE SAME theater where I saw Eva 1.0 a little bit more than three years ago. Funny).

There were previews for some movies I don't care about (like the Kamen Rider movie), but, as I expected, there were trailers for May'n the Movie (which got a laugh from the audience because it was projected at the wrong angle: the bottom of the image was about halfway up the screen...thus, when May'n spoke, it looked like the camera was avoiding her head and focusing on her chest. The projector guy quickly fixed the problem) and "Wings of Farewell" (I was hoping for a new trailer, but it was the same old one we've all seen).

And then "Nyan Cli" started.

A lot of reviews of "The False Diva" compare it to DYRL. "Nyan Cli" seemed like it would be the equivalent of "Flashback 2012," so comparing the two seems apt. As you may know, FB2012 was essentially a music video collection, sandwiched by a few minutes worth of new (and stunning) animation. "Nyan Cli," it turns out, is nothing like that. Probably more than 50% of the footage is completely new. None of it is essential, but most of it is a lot of fun.

Spoilers follow:

Spoiler for Details:


So yeah...very different from what I was expecting. The way the credits were separate for each video (and that each one had different staff) makes me think that this is really just a way for the different animators at Satelight to strut their stuff and try to outdo each other. And as a short, fun "jam session," it works beautifully. If you like Sheryl, you'll love at least some portions of it. If you like Ranka, you'll love some others. If you like both, then this is a must-see, since it's really a forty-minute love letter to both of them.

Staying away from your 'details' because i don't want to be spoiled, though i'm glad to hear it turned out to be pretty interesting. Not a long wait now for the Blu-ray!

Oh, it's gonna be a long wait, alright... I'm also feeling slightly envious, right now. I don't know why...

The CG looks horrible. It's like... a waste of money.

No, I don't want to spoil myself either. But it still doesn't change the fact that it looks horrible in that trailer.

I heard there is a delay around 2 - 3 months for 2nd movie, because of this nyanclip
If this nyanclip is so important...and success
I hope they will make another one based on the
2nd movie...I am sure there is more songs also worth to be animated

-pink moonson
-obelisk
-what about my star
-ribe
-welcome to my stage
-songbird
-yousei
-and many more XD

And the setting is around 2-3 years after sayonara no tsubasa
So we can see sheryl at her 20's ....just married XD

Cute Ranka is cute~ As are the cute chibis. (Bobby! <3)

WAIT WHAT full version of Koi wa Dogfight?? I dig it. B)

The 3D animation isn't as bad as I initially thought, based on the earlier trailer, but it's not preferred. I'm looking forward to the rest of the Nyan Cli videos.

That's the complete extent of the 3D animation of Ranka. The Sheryl 3D stuff is equally brief.

And yeah...Koi no Dogfight rocks.

Thank goodness! I think it would have been a waste if the videos had extended scenes animated in the MMD style. btw, thanks for sharing. : )

It's my favorite track on CMRanka. I'm glad to know there's a full version of it now!

@ying;
Thank you for sharing~

homg Sheryl playing piano is the best <3 <3
I think I might just have to buy the Nyan Cli BD now.

Diamond Crevasse is really lovely. The scene is beautiful with a melancholic touch. The scenery, the water, the masks...so gorgeous! *u*

Also...
