As someone mentioned above, Sheryl's What 'bout my Star is different from Ranka's, in a sense that the song had to be rearranged to sound good on Ranka's voice. This is a different case - she wasn't just singing over the song with the same difficulty, she was singing over an easier arrangement, toned down just for her voice. For May'n to sound decent and appropriate on the coquettish arrangement like WBMS deserves notice.

Why, just re-listen to their WBMS duet and we can see who's better Frankly, Ranka can't handle the hard parts...

I thought it was a great duet! Probably not an easy song to perform live, especially after seeing quite a few songs before. Crowd reception was fantastic it seems.

Edit: Was Maaya also singing?

Was it live, or was it just played in front of a live audience? It sounded too clean...

EDIT: Oh is this from the Osaka Super Live concert?

Two more version of the new OP from Ep 18.
http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=_onJtSrlODY
http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=s2w4xUOYqvg <-- seems to be slightly better

I am quite impressed. That was a very good OP. On e of the best of an anime series I have seen. I love how they trade off singing parts of the song. Great duet.

BTW around 50-53 seconds in it shows Ranka/Alto/Sheryl next to each other in little triangles. Do they seem older to you in those pictures? Kind of like a sneak peak of the future in a way.

Gosh, I wish I had some of the official artwork, but the pictures that you're talking about have definitely been shown before in various magazines.

Finally got to hear Sheryl's Aimo O_____O God, two words of it are enough to win me over Now I can't decide which version of Aimo that I love more, Maaya's or May'n. They both sing with so much emotions, especially in Sheryl's situation it's so sad and melancholic there's no way 1 or 2 lines only would satisfy my craving, so give me Ranshe and Sheryl's full versions, then Ranka can stop singing Aimo in the rest of the show for all I care

It's kind of ironic, yet heartbreaking at the same time when Alto ran in the rain searching for Sheryl with Ranka singing Do you remember love in the background. Well used cover.

Is this the pic you're talking about?

Spoiler:


This ending pic seems to be the only new drawing, as all the rest were animation taken from earlier episodes.

The character drawing in this series fluctuates depending on the budget for the episode. For example, Ranka in episode 10 looks like 14 where in episode 8 she looks like 10. So it's hard to tell if it's intentional or just better budget for the OP.

But I do like this pic. All three leads do look more mature in it.

I hate how Ranka is only a year or two younger than Sheryl and they make her look like a 12 year old girl. It's just crap honestly. Lolicon fans or not they could do better. They can make her look a little older and still hold on to her child like innocence. It's more in the attitude anyways.

This picture makes them all look probably closer to what they should. Ranka is by far the oldest in this picture only because someone intelligent drew her.

After listening to the rip (many times already) it feels a little....underwhelming. I still love it though. Waiting eagerly for a high quality version
