The Nyan-Nyan song is still my favorite from all of Macross... >_> Yeah... I liked Haruhi's ED more than any other ED, OP, or OST for any anime. But anyhow, if we're talking non-sing&dance tunes...
Back to the talk about how Ranka sounds better and more professional than Sheryl (or at least I think that's what has been said in the past pages) or just all around more emotional... You have to remember, Sheryl is the idol of this anime and she's likely been performing for years and years, doing hundreds upon hundreds of concerts. You can't sing the same song over and over again with the same love for it you may of had the first time you sang it perfectly, and have the same emotions portrayed every time. Where as Ranka has only started singing in the past couple of weeks for people, so she has a pop flare and all this pent up emotion from NOT singing for people at all. That's just my theory, but it's not one that isn't extremely possible. Even I can only sing a song about Drunken Sailors so many times before it isn't funny to think about drunken sailors being thrown and pulled everywhere to, "sober up." There's my two-bits.
(But no, the music in Macross Frontier is really well done and 'Don't Be Late' and 'What 'bout My Star?' are especially fun tunes. Nyan-Nyan isn't the only one I love... <_<)

Speaking of Nyan Nyan song...I seriously was annoyed by it when Ranka sang it until they showed the actual commercial. But this guy cracked me up.

Took a while to post this but May'n wil be performing on the second day of this year's Animelo Challenge.

One thing of interest to note that Yoshiki Fukuyama, Nekki Basara's singing voice, will be there on the same day with JAM Project.

SHERYL NOME x NEKKI BASARA LIVE! LISTEN TO OUR SONG!

So here's hoping for this fanservice segment and Mari Ijima as a surprise special guest, like Yoko Takahashi last year.

Yeah that was impressive but I guess that's to be expected when she was chosen out of 34,911 people at an audition held by HoriPro.

Ranka's full version of "What bout my star" can be found in youtube.

For those who hasn't hear it yet, quickly before they put it down!

Personally its better than Sheryl's version. There's even a small duet performed between Ranka and Sheryl in Ranka's version which is max awesome.

Loving the Ranka and Sheryl duet version of What bout my star @ folmo... makes me wonder if they go back to folmo and sing a duet... also found a better quality version of the Sheryl version... loving the Sharon Apple/Macross Plus vibe from that version as well.

Seems last week Don't Be Late shifted 12630 units and Triangler 6350, does anyone have the figures for the week before this?

Also here's a youtube clip of Nakajima Megumi's My Boyfriend is a Pilot & Interstellar Flight in fairly decent sound quality.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16Qm_-UxmrI

I'm liking Interstellar Flight more than when I first heard it (longer sample + better quality helps!) but I seriously hope this isn't the next OP.. the song just isn't OP material imo... more suited to be an upbeat ED.

Doesn't seem to be single worthy if it's just an insert song though... I seriously hope this isn't "the" Ranka song of the series.

The second song is cute. Finally, a Better song from Ranka. It gets better the more you listen to it. It can work for either OP and ED to me. It makes a cute, funny contrast to the mecha theme IF they made it the 2nd OP or leaves you with an upbeat feeling of the episode for an ED theme. If I were to pick, I'd like it better for an ED theme. It would be a nice change from all the depressing songs so far. Plus, I don't think everyone will like their badass Macross Frontier having a cutesy lovelove OP

And I doubt this is 'the' Ranka song. I'm thinking if this is it, then why aren't they promoting this the way they did Diamond Crevasse. I'd expect Ranka's final song to showcase what made Megumi Nakajima win from a Nationwide audition. My expectations are a little high, I hope I won't get disappointed.

No way this should be the second OP, should be something in the vein of the RahXephon or the Aquarion OP. Triangler as the OP over Don't Be Late was a bad enough miss in the first place and I'm sure we'll get a few more OP worthy songs in the second half.

Well DC only got that massive amount of promotion in episode 6 because the cd single came out that week, the cd single for Interstellar Flight comes out in like 4 weeks or so. I expect it will get a concert performance in the episode that airs in the same week it comes out as well as ending up as the new op or ed.

Between Aimo (for plot reasons) and Interstellar Flight (cd single/her first hit in the show) I really don't see her getting another "big" song, a DYRL so to say. Perhaps the DYRL of this series will be a duet between her and Sheryl.

EDIT

Found the current oricon sales figures for cd singles released this year, both Frontier singles are placed in the top 50 for 2008.

42 *,*75,026 *12,630 Don't be late starring May'n 08/05/08
44 *,*72,024 **6,350 08/04/23

Don't Be Late is still hanging around the 8-15 mark on the daily charts, guess it will finish up at around 90-95k while Triangler finishes at around 80k.

I think Neko Nikki will fit the best as the 2nd ending

Im also betting that "Aimo Tori no Hito" is going to be the insert song for ep10 since ranka suppose to sing the theme song for "legend of zero" and this is the closest song i can see that can fit into the theme
