Looks like they're cashing in on the Macross music phenomenon pretty well, as well as this being a preview of May'n performance during Animelo '08.

They've done a great job in cashing in just the music: episode 10 was a great advertisement for the Macross Zero Blu-ray box that's about to be released. Even in this forum, we can see people interested in either watching Macross Zero for the first time, or giving it a rewatch.

On a similar note, episode 6's wonderful send-off also served to push the sales of the Diamond Crevasse single which was released the following day. The thing is, this advertising has been executed so well that nobody seems to mind. Sure it may be blatant commercialism, but it's darned entertaining as well.

Newtype7 (June 10th Release) So what is this about? Another single?
Also "Interstellar Flight" is another single in the series by Lanka. Something about it actually being released as a single in Japan? Megumi Nakajima is supposedly promoting it.

The Interstellar Flight single is coming out on 2008/06/25, Lion/Northern Cross cd single comes out on 2008/08/06. The next Macross episode airs on the 19th and episode 12 is than the third of July... I wonder if the cd single will get pushed back a week. Though I guess if Interstellar Flight is sung in episode 11 it's no problem...

Oh this is going to sell more than I thought, a poster on the GR blog said..

Quote:
The numbers you see next to the top 3 are not actually sales numbers, but and index figure. Multiply the total by 1.75 and you get a reasonably accurate idea of how many units have sold.
So sales after 5 days are.. (taking from the Oricon 2008 thread on jpopmusic.com)

x->2->3->3->3->3 - Kanno Youko - 10,304 + 9,235 + 5,132 + 4,542 + 6,775 (X1.7)= 61,180

Obliterates her previous high in the CB Movie OST, I can definitely see at least 4 OSTS coming out now with sales like this...

Grabbed this off Nico and uploaded it up on youtube. An utterly beautiful piano rendition of Diamond Crevasse. The same guy did Triangler but IMHO it doesn't sound as great as this.

I have two questions.

One: Is the song "Infinity" really by Ranka? It doesn't really sound like her to me.

Two: The song "Aimo" is REALLY pretty and addicting (full version), but...there's like words I've barely heard before. Check out the lyrics. What language are they in? Italian? Greek? Something?

Infinity is by Sheryl.. the only time she sang it was episode 7 when she sang along with sheryl

Think its Zentradi language

Infinity is an interesting song, I find the song a bit short because the 1st 5-8 secs of it with the climax building strong then abruptly ends without a dramatic follow through. The middle and end is a bit weak but if they remix this song, it could sound even better.

The reason Diamond Crevasse is so good because the beginning, middle, and end is very well balanced.

Most folks without a trained ear likes/dislikes a song based on 3-4 secs of the song's beginning.

AIMO is not sang in the ZENTRADI language. Its just Yoko Kanno's habit of creating coglangs and put them in her music. If you heard the real Zentradi being spoken (in DYRL), you will immediately recognize its nothing like the beginning of AIMO.

W... ow.

The Zentradi were the original enemies of humanity since Super Dimension Fortress Macross aired in 1982. They lost the 'big one' and now co-exist with humanity (at least a portion of them). Since there are many, and I mean, MANY other not-yet pacified Zent fleets out there, it is partially the duty of colonial ships to bring 'uncultured' Zentradi as part of the UN SPACY.

That's one thing you have to give Macross - they're pretty good about pushing the product, which is probably why Macross 7 sold so well despite having such an... odd story which turns off some of the hardcore fans of previous things like Macross Plus. They're doing a very good job selling the seiyuu as well as the CD's, Blu-Ray discs, and the show itself.

Hmm im starting to think that Aimo is the song of the Vajra because she was one if not the only survivor of that vajra attack and it probably had some weird effect and fused with her. When she sang Aimo the vajra woke up and attacked the SMS and Miltiary people right and that guy who knows alot about the vajra plays Aimo on his hermonicha. Omg thats it im betting :P

According to this article:

the last time an anime OST was in the top 3 was 11 years ago, the End of Eva soundtrack! So it is one heck of a big deal!

things are sure looking good! I bet Ranka's single is gonna do great!
Yeah that's pretty big.

Dang, that's impressive. Looks like we're not the only ones who like this show

Here's hoping that this will lead to the creation of a Frontier movie or another Macross show that will be equally impressive in terms of creative contents.
