The Awesome Music of Macross Frontier

Recently I finished watching Macross Frontier. I’ll be posting a full review to the blog in a while, but in short, I was absolutely, positively blown away. Fantastic animation, very engaging storyline, and simply awesome music, which isn’t surprising coming from a series whose whole premise is based on the concept of the power of song.

The only thing I knew about Macross before this was that Robotech used parts of the first Macross anime, The Super Dimensional Fortress Macross for its first story arc (The Macross Saga), and that they heavily edited the Macross storyline to fit within the Robotech continuity. (One of these days I must view it in its original form.) So I’m still a newcomer to the Macross series.

Anyway I highly recommend you check it out, even if you’re not familiar with the rest of the Macross-verse; the story stands on its own, and you don’t really need to know much of the Macross backstory to enjoy it (plus there’s always Wikipedia). In particular, the music is, as I mentioned before, spectacular. As an example, here is J-Pop artist May’n (who provided the singing voice of Macross Frontier diva Sheryl Nome) singing one of the ending themes of Macross Frontier (and my favorite song from the series), “Northern Cross.”
