Macross Frontier's Opening Single Stays in Top 10
posted on by Egan Loo
"Triangler," Maaya Sakamoto's opening theme song for the ongoing Macross Frontier space opera television anime, has stayed on Oricon's weekly top-10 chart for all Japanese singles for a second week. A week after its April 23 debut at #2, "Triangler" now stands at #6. The ending theme "Diamond Crevasse" officially launches on May 8, but it already ranks at #2 on Oricon's daily singles chart for May 6. May'n sings "Diamond Crevasse" as the fictional idol singer Sheryl Nome. Yoko Kanno (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell) composed and arranged both songs.
In related news, Sheryl Nome launched an official blog on the Ameba website last week. New entries are added almost daily in the real world, but they are dated for different days in the 2058-2059 timeframe of the Macross Frontier storyline.
