The Singaporean representative at the World Cosplay Submit in Japan reported that his cosplay as Basara was shockingly popular.

Basara wasn't just recognised by otakus, but on his way to the event, people on the street, salarymen, people in the subway shouted Basara and Fire Bomber quotes and called out to him.

During the event, he attracted more attention than Touhou and Vocaloid cosplayers.

His cosplay team includes Mylene, a Fire Valkyrie Battroid form as well as the entire cockpit and front of the fuselage of the Fire Valkyrie.

It seems that Basara is still extremely popular in Japan.

To that I've no doubt. I've always said Basara was friggin popular and Macross 7 is one of the most popular shows ever.

As to how that is?

I will never know.

Really?! I know Basara is popular but I don't know he's that popular with a lot of people (on the street) even now. I guess that's one advantage of being eccentric-badass who sings all the time.

Nice little info you got there.

It is sort of like Aquarion instead of one popular song it has albums worth and they associate it with Macross 7, which is why it is popular.

Except Aquarion doesn't bore you to death with the same thing for countless episodes until the finale. That show kept me interested until the end. It had to be the second most memorable mecha series for me. (My very first was Vandread at the time of 2005; but Macross Frontier pushed that one aside.)

My marathon of Macross finally leads me to Macross 7. Watched first 3 episodes and dunno if Basara is brave or just plan crazy. But I can't deny his mad skills as pilot, being able to pilot a Valkyrie, playing the guitar and singing in a battle all at once!

Oh and Mylene is such a cutie. As expected as a daughter of Milia :P

I am not sure if the word 'cutie' would be taken as a compliment to describe the offspring of the great matriarch Milia...

It's all on personal perception. Still think she's cute though.

Edit: BUT! Her sister, Emilia, is smoking! I totally see Basara and her getting together after the series. Nothing better than having a 50 ft. Meltrandi as your singing partner. Their duet Heart and Soul won me over. And why am I so jealous of Pedro?
