Megumi Nakajima and me

I pirated the recently published album of Kampfer's ED remix, in secret, since I only do it for sampling purposes... It's not like I'm a fan enough to buy R2s. Oh wait, who am I kidding? Anyhow, a post at Transientem made me leave the closet because of the following pronouncement:

Megumi Nakajima could be the next Maaya Sakamoto.

Surprisingly, I know who Miss Nakajima is: she has beaten every fan's idol May'n fair and square in Macross Frontier soundtrack, and confused Hinano. But alas, Kampfer ED Single sounded kind of flat to me. It's suitably perky and poppy, but it has no standalone power that I crave. Oh well, better luck next time.

BTW, her partner in the ED is Marina Inoue, who I also know (mostly because I was surprised to find that "Marina" was a Japanese name). Kampfer has a stong cast overall, but singing without video is a different matter.
