Edit: Short note – I just noticed that Megumi’s latest blog entry had “Wanna be an Angel” in its title. So her single “Tenshi ni Naritai” does translate to that
Not a very good showing, I was expecting top 10 at least. There may be many factors that affected this release, one of them would have to be the fact that I think the songs have been officially up for download beforehand. I sure wish I knew where to look for download stats, because we know that CMYoko+2 also had low rankings despite (or because of) a surprisingly good showing in the download charts.
The other factor that might have affected this release is the absence of link to retail high-striker Macross. May’n's release had a promotional video of a song which is being publicized with a link to Kanno and her work in Macross F, not adding her solo of Lion was also included in the album.
On a side note, last time I checked the Newtype character rankings for most popular female characters, Sheryl is still #2 (terrible showing for Gundam 00 ), while Ranka is nowhere in sight…
Anyway, best of luck to Megumi Nakajima and her future releases! Sing a ballad for us, Megumi!!!
