I love idols, this should be no surprise to you if you read my blog, some of my favorite moments in anime have idols in them. Not only that I love the music, the outfits, the dancing and cheerfulness/glow they can emit just the whole package. I must admit this love was spawn from Ranka Lee but nevertheless it is still true now. So I am bringing you my list of the best idols in anime. I think no one will be surprised at number one but at least the other 19 should be interesting. Continue reading
It has been a pretty fun ride and the end was nothing different. I have been seeing some criticism of the end but honestly this is Aquarion Evol if you expected something that was completely sound in plot I don’t know what you have been watching all this time. This show was always about having fun, it truly was exactly what I wished Macross F had been like and more. But then again episode 25 of Macross F was also pretty fun too and certain people complained up a storm about it (fair warning if you are not a Ranka fan I suggest you just stop reading right now).

I bought two Ranka figures recently both of which are brand new releases from late last May. The first is Figuarts ZERO Ranka, a release from Bandai, that is rather small but very detailed for her size. The second is Brownie Ranka, a release from Banpresto, a DX figure which seems to be a cheaper figure line. I am very pleased with both of these figures even if they are not as nice as some of the more expensive ones out there. Continue reading
While Aquarion Evol does not have the same epic feel to it as Kawamori’s Macross series this show does not fail when it comes to providing me with pure entertainment. It’s one of the few I could blog about on a weekly basis and I almost want to go back and blog the rest at this point just to get more fun out of the show. I really do think this episode was fantastic though in every way and it did a good job setting up the finale next week. It doesn’t feel like they will need to rush any plot lines as most of it has been settled besides the main storyline. Continue reading
So it’s been two years now since I became a Ranka fan (if you wish to hear my story of Ranka I went into it on her birthday post here) so I feel like writing on something from last year that I wish I had been able to blog about at the time. That being the Macross F Super Live concert held on the PlayStation network which was one of my favorite memories as a Ranka fan. Such an old event is probably of little interest at this point but I put the YouTube video of it at the bottom for reference if you wish to see it. Continue reading
I liked this weeks Aquarion Evol, I wasn’t on board with how it was progressing at first but it turned out pretty good in the end. Had lots of Andy being Andy and Mix being Mixy and holes being made and filled between the two which is always fun to watch. The whole Amata’s real father route at first seemed rather flat but it started getting a lot better towards the end and even got me a little misty-eyed in the final scene. Continue reading
We are now down to the very last and at the best of the best in Macross F outfits. While the top 20 was pretty hard to rank overall, the number one rank was not. This is by far and way my favorite, it’s not even close. In fact it’s not even just my favorite of Macross F wardrobe this is the best outfit I’ve ever seen. I love it so much that I think it deserved a full post of its own.
Besides just ranking dresses I wanted to put in these awards just because there are such a number and variety of outfits for Ranka and Sheryl that are a lot of categories and just interesting costumes worth mentioning. So this is the post for everything else I haven’t had a place to mention until now. This was my favorite post to write personally and the awards are for fun here so I hope you enjoy. Continue reading
