Macross F Galaxy Tour FINAL in Budokan – Part 3

Sheryl Nome rises high above the crowd and welcomes them to her fan club’s night.


In part 3, we’ll take a look at May’n’s return to the stage. After a costume change, she comes back in Sheryl Nome-like fashion with a dominating presence care of the big screen. While the crowd gets excited about her performance of “Welcome to My FanClub’s Night!”, it’s not until the start of “Northern Cross” did they get really fired up. For that performance, they even had the air blowers going to give May’n’s hair and fluffy clothes that extra angelic touch. Surprisingly, Megumi returns to the stage right after (costume change and all) in a never before seen Aimo acappella performance. May’n also adds in her Aimo acappella bit, before Megumi takes us into a full-blown Aimo O.C. It was amazing to see the captivated crowd of 14,000+ go completely silent for the acappella performances.


“Welcome To My FanClub’s Night!”


“Northern Cross”


Ranka Aimo acappella, Sheryl Aimo acappella, followed by a full-blown Aimo O.C.


Both Megumi and May’n looked very solemn for the Aimo performance, which made it sound like a song for the dead. (I guess it sort of is…?).




May’n then performs “Infinity”, the song that opens strikingly similar to See-Saw‘s Kimi wa Boku ni Niteiru (Gundam SEED Destiny ED4).


“Tsuioku no Trumpet” (Trumpet of Reminiscence)


Let’s not count out the instrumental music composed by Kanno Youko though. Macross’ music always tends to give me goosebumps, much like this performance of “Tsuioku no Trumpet” did. While this particular piece is short, the twin trumpets sounded awesome. Judging by the title and the army uniforms, this really did come off as a salute to fallen soldiers. :’(


“Ao no Ether”


Continuing on with that tone, Megumi returns all dressed in white to serenade us with “Ao no Ether”. Both her and the song are just beautiful.

    The macross F soundtrack is probably one of my favourite anime soundtracks of all time and the live versions were amazing

    Sorry… didn’t read youre first post. :) (DVD: 09-10-30, Blu-ray: 09-11-27.)

  • October 26, 2009 at 3:26 pmdivine

    This is from the DVD release, which is surprisingly “available” already.

  • October 26, 2009 at 4:03 pmExcalibur

    Are there differences between the DVD and Blu-Ray versions? because i do want to buy this

  • October 26, 2009 at 4:10 pmEva

    This is an absolutely stunning performance, thanks for posting :D This is awesome!!! :D :D :D

  • October 26, 2009 at 4:10 pmbeeboobeeboo

    I just realized May’n is wearing Sheryl’s earrings :O

  • October 26, 2009 at 4:27 pmkfu

    omg..so cool! I just noticed May’n wearing the earing…..LOL. It was like, glittering in the camera just like in the anime =D

  • October 26, 2009 at 4:43 pmO.o!

    Wut? Where is the medley that comes at the final battle in Macross Frontier?

  • October 26, 2009 at 5:08 pmGundam 00

    The final song it just… wow

  • October 26, 2009 at 5:29 pminfo600

    “Ao no Ether”‘s one of the better songs i’ve been listening to (soothing), too beautiful for words

    …on the other hand, the “Aimo acappella” performances really sent a chilling note onto myself, though May’n has some skills to sing without the hand-held mic (maybe she was using the lapel mic on her belt, I dono)

  • October 26, 2009 at 5:44 pmdivine

    Content-wise, they appear to be the same. The obvious benefits of the Blu-ray are HD picture quality and Dolby TrueHD 5.1ch sound though.

  • October 26, 2009 at 6:53 pmholy_

    Northern Cross ftw

  • October 26, 2009 at 7:03 pmbuff

    i cant seem to watch the 1st clip -oops, video not available-

  • October 26, 2009 at 7:56 pmyohkoyamamoto

    I prefer May’n’s dancing, clothes, and voice. :)

  • October 26, 2009 at 7:58 pmraile

    May’n blew me away with her awesomeness. O_O

  • October 26, 2009 at 8:29 pm7

    Twas good, but May’n’s dancing ruined it.

  • October 26, 2009 at 8:47 pmseeqmii

    The more of these you post, the closer i am to watching the bluray rips of Macross Frontier currently eating 16gb of my hard drive space.

  • October 26, 2009 at 11:00 pmpiggybank

    Wow, Megumi’s just too awesome in that last one. She’s pretty on tone for a live :D

    …and May’n completely blew me away (lol literally), with Northern Cross, but she’s a bit too nasal for my liking, but that’s part of what makes her voice special. :)

    It’s very nice and all but…. no “Lion”?

  • October 27, 2009 at 4:04 amdivine

    Surprisingly, they saved Lion for the encore, which I found pretty weird.

  • October 27, 2009 at 6:23 am007

    where i can get HD video from this tour??

  • October 27, 2009 at 12:48 pmDexter Ngo

    Megumi can be my Minmei anytime!
