The anime series Macross has been loved by many people for a long time and is approaching it’s 35th anniversary. Macross offers many different aspects, like transforming robots, complicated relationships, and in the middle of all this is Sheryl Nome, the popular heroine.
On 6 March 2017, a video countdown to Sheryl’s resurrection was released and on 12 March 2017 at 14:30, the big screens in Akihabara and Shinjuku announced that Sheryl would come back with a new song, eliciting cheers from fans.
Sheryl Nome to be Revived for Macross 35th Anniversary
Sheryl Nome is one of the heroines of Macross Frontier At her side are Alto Saotome, the main character, and Ranka Lee, the singing princess. They have a love triangle that made all of Japan go crazy over them at the time. Sheryl’s nickname is ‘Galactic Fairy’. In the work, she is popular throughout the entire galaxy. Sheryl is voiced by Aya Endo and her singing is performed by May’n. Her duet with Ranka called Lion is loved by fans even today, still ranking very high in the ranking of most popular karaoke songs.
When it was suddenly announced that Sheryl would be revived, everybody was speculating whether it would be a new sequel or a new song, and due to the rising expectations from fans, Sheryl even became a trending topic on Twitter. The impact of the announcement of the new song was big.
The title of the new song is ゴ～～ジャス (Go~~rgeous). From the beginning, the flair of the video reminds us of Arabia and it seems very exotic; then Sheryl’s voice comes in. Inspired by the sound of the roughly 2-minute-long video, we get to see a ‘belly dancer Sheryl’. It shows a new charm of Sheryl, who is sexier than ever in this video. With her beautiful voice and her eye-catching appearance, she is the charming ‘Galactic Fairy’ like she always was and becomes even more ‘gorgeous’.
A truck playing the new song Go~~rgeous will drive around Tokyo city between 12-19 March 2017. More details about the release will be announced soon. Keep checking MANGA.TOKYO for all the latest info.
