For those of you that haven't seen Macross Frontier, Let this topic be a preparation for you about the kinds of music in this series. Some of the best recent Jpop. A few videos below. The videos are of the artist: May'n, who plays Sheryll Nome in the anime. Megumi Nakajima also has a large role in the anime however she is a new artist and to my searching, concert videos of her to not yet exist.
Did not see the vids but man Mitsugi have to agree with you there. The overall of Macross Frontier is really good. I really need to snag myself the soundtrack because the music in Macross Frontier is such a treat.

Thank you Mitsugi. Macross Frontier is an amazing Mecha anime it has everything you can ask for. In traditional Macross fashion it has the accidental pilot, the ace Senpai, The Blue genius, a love triangle and beautiful music. and in traditional Macross fashion this show is as much if not more about the music than the mecha. I am a Mecha Enthusiast and am progressing through all of Macross because of this series. As of right now im halfway through original Macross and im not disappointed. This is a stunning Anime just stay away from the Pinnaple salad. If youll excuse me im taking off in my Valkyrie now "Vermilion Squad heading out".

I'm one of the internet's few straight men, you know. Someone has to do the job =P
Anyway, Nakabayashi Mai AKA May'n is a great singer. Rarely have I heard someone with such a passionate, emotional voice. Especially when she's singing Northern Cross (sounds better recorded than live, but hey). I hope she will continue to do music for other animes in the future.

That May'n concert at the Budokan sold out in 3 days. Must be really popular. Plus, the blue-ray consistently sells well too. As a Macross enthusiast, I've got to say that I really enjoyed the series. There were a few lull points but its solid nonetheless. I think that one needs to be a bit familiar with the other series to appreciate it completely, like the talk with the "valkyrie pilot's curse" as well as Ozma palying the hell out of Fire Bomber. Its a great addition to the franchise.
