Here's a blog and snipets of May'n Live on 5/9 at a Japanese train station, singing the 3 songs from Macross F.

Not very good quality but not bad, she can blow.

May'n as Sheryl Nome, Live

Two Macross Frontier theme songs ranked in Oricon's weekly top 10 chart for all Japanese singles last week. The CD single for May'n's "Diamond Crevasse" ending theme debuted at #3, while Maaya Sakamoto's "Triangler" opening theme stayed at #6. Sakamoto's song also debuted at #3 when it launched three weeks ago. Yoko Kanno (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell) composed and arranged both songs for this space opera sequel in the Macross franchise. At #2 was "Niji" ("Rainbow"), the theme song that Aqua Timez (Bleach, Brave Story) performed for the most recent live-action television series based on the Gokusen manga.
Don't Be Late had opening week sales of 42,714 which is better than Trianglers opening week of 31,250. Triangler did 12,550 in its second week and 12886 in the third bringing it to a grand total of 56,686. This makes Triangler her second best selling cd single since it surpassed "Hemisphere" (her best intro song imo...) which sold 54,460 copies. It should surpass "Kiseki no Umi" which is her best selling single with 66,340 units sold. The Macross brand name is still very strong..

Also looking at jpopmusic.com I read this about May Nakabayashi aka May'n.

From what I gather, she was chosen out of 34,911 people at an audition held by HoriPro and debuted in 2005.
Will be interesting to see how Ranka's single compares to the sales of these two.. if it isn't for the second opening I have a pretty decent idea what the cd single is going to be... if you're curious read the spoilers I posted from Macross World for episode 10 in the speculation & spoilers thread.

It looks like the Macross Frontier music is seeing the Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny effect. Anime music as a rule doesn't sell particularly well, but the music attached to those shows consistently debuted in the top 1-2 in sales. It looks like the Macross music isn't quite as successful, but Triangler being Sakamoto Maaya's best-selling single ever is certainly nothing to sneeze at.

In other news, I'm awfully impressed with the volume and quality coming out of Macross Frontier. In just the first few episodes, there's enough for an OST and three singles without counting all the remixes they can pump out.

I know that it's a bit of a joke that SDF Macross had only one song, and that Macross 7 only had three songs, but they each had a fair amount of music. However, Macross Frontier is already encroaching on their volume, and we're only a quarter of the way in.

Don't Be Late actually debuted 2nd place on Oricon, pretty impressive, if you ask me.

But don't forget, Macross 1982 was the pioneer in bringing anime music to regular popular music charts. It pretty much single-handedly paved the road for anime music that wish to follow the same path in the years to come.

Macross World poster paper2k1 mentioned that the name of the Ranka Lee single got revealed on the Nakajima Megumi official Blog. It's called Interstellar Flight.

I wonder if this'll be the version on the OST, or if they'll have it on OST 2?

Wait for someone to transcribe it, or wait for the OST.

Track 2: Neko Nikki (Cat Diary)
Track 3: Watashi no Kare wa Pilot Part 1 (My Boyfriend is a Pilot Part 1)

No Ranka/Kanno version of Ai Oboete Imasuka

The May'n single is still high in the charts, last update was #4 on the daily charts.

Has who's doing the vocals and who wrote the tracks now. 5 tracks for both May'n/Sheryl and Megumi Nakajima/Ranka. So counting the OP and the SMS song that means half of the tracks on the OST are made up of vocal songs.

http://gabrielarobin.com/221/ranka-l...-single-tracks


M-1:Hoshikan Hikou (Interstellar Flight)
M-2:Neko Nikki (Cat Diary)
M-3: Ai Oboete Imasu Ka (Deculture Edition Size)Do You Remember Love
M-4: Watashi no Kare wa Pilot - Miss Macross 2059(My Boyfriend is a Pilot)
M-5: Hoshikan Hikou (Interstellar Flight) instrumental
M-6: Ai Oboete Imasu Ka (Deculture Edition Size)Do You Remember Love instrumental

Ai Oboete Imasu Ka ftw!
