Sounds fun, right?

Is there a video for this, or even pictures? Sounds like a must see in my books.

Not that I know of...actually, I' not sure the second contest even happened, come to think of it. I know she made a second Valk model a month or two after the initial contest, so I assumed...but I really don't know.

I've never seen a video of the first one or anythng...I'll dig around and see if I can find something.

I'm sure they at least have some say on how they're image is being portrayed?

Otherwise, if everything she does gets blamed on the way she is marketed, I don't see how anyone could like an idol who is portraying herself under an image that has nothing to do with herself.

There is a word for it and it's called a "sellout".
I can't take Nakajima seriously at all >_____>

As for the custom valkyrie thing, I bugged around google for a bit to see what it's about:
Spoiler for too big, can't be bothered to shrink XD:

http://tokyohunter.blogspot.com/2009...5-messiah.html

From the ridiculously short description on the site, it seems she 'designed' the VF and Bandai made it for her.

Also from official page:
http://bandai-hobby.net/macross/contest/vol01.html

Apparently the work process, though it doesn't seem to show Nakajima actually really doing anything ==; I'm hoping the description is more productive than the photos.

2ch is anti-megumi because...

a) She voiced Ranka and 2ch like everywhere else is Sheryl land. Anti-Sheryl threads on 2ch as of this month = 18... Anti-Ranka threads went from 17 to 21 in the episode she left Frontier with Ai-kun and Brera.. Sheryl was at 4 at that stage.. so with one episode she outdid Sheryl's previous 19 episodes in hate posts, quite a feat... most posters disliked her treatment of Brera not to mention the obvious things.. Who knows what it's up to now.

b) They dislike her image, I know why she's doing it but I don't have to like it.

c) More than likely because she's half Filipino

Stuff like nico nico mods stoping Anti-Megumi comments on certain videos doesn't help as well..

Well, that's silly. It's like people who believe actors make up their own lines. "Grrr...I don't like Darth Vader, so I'm gonna say David Prowse and James Earl Jones are both JERKS!" Silly.

Videos...? I thought it was only "Be Myself" (which is, admittedly, a terrible song. Her non-Macross F stuff has been...lacking, I think. But I think the same is true for May'n).

Hey I actually like May'n songs outside of the stuff she did in Macross this one is one of my favorite non-Macross songs. The only thing I had a problem with was that it sounds so different from the songs she sang in Macross, but it isn't a bad song. Like I said before Megumi should really just stop trying to act cute, it doesn't really work for her voice and really limits her in terms of what she can do. Though I still think the fact that Megumi basically sings in monotone has something to do with it.

P.S. I heard somewhere that Megumi bashing got so bad that it extended beyond her be myself video.

Hn, really?
I thought her OP for Shangri-La ("Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlxB799XGRo) was really good o.o
"Miracle upper WL" with Masami (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVwYqihHpcE) was really uber too o_O;

Also I think with her post-MF album a lot of the songs was like my first impressions of "Iteza☆Gogo Kuji Don't be late". Originally i wasn't too fond of it, but it sort of got better the more I listened to it?

Like the earlier and main body of "Why" (I thought the ending started to drag and finally ended abruptly X'D I can see what she was trying to do but it just didn't really work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USViv0mh8Pk ignore the retarded stage dance looool). "Blue" was very pretty too >___< (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwearMrL9hA).

What ippus said.

Not bashing Mamegu, per se, but I really don't care for her stuff post-MF (and not even most of her songs were to my liking, even then). But hey, she's still young. Hopefully, she'll get better. Her concert outfits, tho, need improvement ASAP.

I hope I didn't come off as saying May'n non-MF music is bad...I'm just not terribly fond of the R&B style of either May'n Street or her early singles. I tend to like rock/pop more, so it's not much of a surprise that stuff like "Northern Cross" or "Iteza Gogo Kuji Don't be late" grab me more than, say, "Sympathy" or "Kiss o Choudai." And I do like some of her stuff...the Shangri-La opening being one of them.

For Megumi, I like "Nostalgia" and I even like her cover of "Tenshi no Engoku."

But that's just my taste, and the way I roll. I think both girls are "good" in that they're talented vocalists and performers. I just don't like everything they do.

By the way, wisteria233, where is that song from? I thought I had all of May'n's music, but I've never heard that one before... And I like it!

I listened to the live full version of Sou Da Yo from the MacF comm at LJ, and I know how people have been gushing at how it's better than Ao no Ether....but I have to say in my honest opinion that it doesn't even come close to Ao no Ether. =_="
Hmmm....maybe it'll be different in the recorded version, we'll see...

Any chance you can point me in the direction of the live full version of Sou Da Yo? I want to take a listen.
