CONGRATULATIONS TO MAY'N AND MAMEGU!
According to http://www.oricon.co.jp/, Lion made #3 on its release date, only losing out to ARASHI and Porno Graffiti's latest singles. They even beat out CHEMISTRY, whose newest single came out on the same day.

That's quite an achievement

Porno Graffiti is actually a very well known rock band in Japan. They debut back in the late 90's.

Hemph, while the prostitution industry in Japan is walking on a very thin thread, they do exist in visible numbers. Regardless, there is a tendency of them not engaging in business with foreigners.

That, and $10 will probably only get you a pat on the back.

May'n talked about the two new songs on her blog a bit. I translated it for my blog article, and I'll post it here as well:
“This duet with Nakajima Megumi-chan expresses the world view of Macross F. This song allowed me to use my best vocal range fully. My favorite part of that song is bridge before the last chorus (^ω^).

Amidst the intensity, it was the only sobbing part. I sang it while gritting my teeth on the lyrics. In this song, I included such feelings as ‘Sheryl’s emotions’ plus ‘May’n shall not rest yet!!’

Next is Northern Cross!! I was really surprised. Sheryl can be quite a rocker! Thanks to this song I was actual to power-up quite considerably. Even though it’s such an upbeat song, the lyrics are really say. Perhaps, different from a ballad (e.g. Diamond Crevasse), this is Sheryl at her most painful moments - pretending to be strong, when she’s struggling to not show her weakness. So when I sang it, rather than ‘carefully’ sing it, I sang it like I was shouting in tears. While this is mentioned on everyone’s comments, I am rather pleased with the ‘roar’ before the final chorus. The initial demo tape did not contain such a melody line, so I wondered if I could stretch my voice tidily. Then I thought, if I were driven into a corner like Sheryl, there’s no way I could sing tidily, so I basically tried to shout intensely while trying to stretch my voice.

During the recording of this song, Kanno-san (Kanno Youko) cheered ‘Sheryl-sama~!!’ many times. And when we were doing the part where the lyrics went ‘Kiete shimae’: ‘I understand!!!’ — by Kanno-san"

Actually, the origin of the name Pornograffti is an album by the American band, Extreme. Sound familiar? It's the same album their greatest hit, More Than Words, is from.

Even Yoko Kanno jumped on the Queen Sheryl bandwagon! She's so cute!

Hmm I've been wanting to ask this so here goes:

Anybody know the title of the Fire Bomber song that was played in episode 17 where Ozma was charging in?

I got the songs but forgot the title. XD

Are you referring to "Try Again"? This is when they were in battle.

Yeah, thanks for the tip!

I wasted 1 day finding the track, as the OST is very vast

Holy crap.

This made me appreciate Northern Cross even more.

Sweet. May the Lion single remain for many weeks among the top 10! Thanks for sharing your translation, W-General. Great insights, especially if one digs the music.

Lion's first 2 days sales are going strong, data from Jpopcentral's forums.

SINGLES
x->1->1 - ARASHI - 119,227 + 66,067 (x1.75) = 324,265
x->2->2 - Porno Graffitti - 12,349 + 9,254 (x1.75) = 37,805
x->3->3 - May'n - 11,715 + 7,721 (x1.75) = 34,013

By the way here's the first week sales for the previous 3 singles....

Full version Anata no Oto sucks. Only the chorus is catchy while the rest is meh.

Worst song in MF so far.
