After all, Minmei treated Hikaru as a friend and didn't love him till the end whilst Ranka loved Alto from the very beginning but was too shy and afraid to tell him. Her character is shy, like Nakajima, yet she's obsessed with her career like Minmei, and upset that Sheryl gets Alto like Mao to her sister, Sara.

Three characters in one... wow. Kawamori is a troll.
except Megumi is actually older than May'n funny how that works.

I like her songs. Most of them, anyway. Mostly because her singing happily in a sad song makes it bearable. When I first heard Diamond Crevasse in Ep20, I turned off the Media player so I wouldn't cry. It was heart wrenching even though I didn't have subtitles for it. After the Heart Rain is said to be sad, but even so, the way she sings it begs to differ and so, I don't think of sad thoughts like everytime I listen to Diamond Crevasse.
I like some of her songs, but I really wish that she would have a wider variety, cause it can get tiring hearing nothing but happy songs.

Um, Vocaloid was horrible. Or it has some horribly flat singers. I listened to quite a few of their songs and I had to find dubs or covers just to bear them! Especially Magnet. I don't like their version of Lion either. I prefer the original Lion because their duet together sounds horrible, like they're machines. I think I'd prefer the singing ability of Nakajima or Utada Hikaru at that point.
It depends on the user if you hear a bad version its usually means that the user could not utilize the program correctly. I have yet to hear someone master the Append program which allows the Vocaloid to use emphasis on their words.

I agree that she should use more tactics when it comes to songs, but perhaps she likes how it sounds? Plus, she has to rely on the record company's approval of the album. So, if they want her to sing like a child, she will. But it is so sad.
I know what you mean her record company may be doing it to ride on the success of MacrossF but its result will just limit NakaMegu's fanbase, especially now that her voice is deeper. While May'n had song in songs before the release of MacossF she never released a full album, but by the time that her own album came out her record company most likely became aware of her range. They were probably just waiting for something to help make her debut. I probably helps that the character she provided a singing voice to was mature and so could sing a large range of songs.

Spoiler for off-topic - earthquake & tsunami:
I was also browsing Pixiv (for Zoids pics) when it suddenly went out. I had no idea what happened and I also thought that maybe they were doing some maintenance until I translated the error message. But I haven't heard anything about Kawamori yet.
