  • Basara Nikki – main singer, plays guitar, over all totally laid back person;
  • Mylene Flare Jenius – the main singing girl, plays guitar, a bit childish but cute girl;
  • Ray Lovelock – plays keys in the band, cool guy;
  • Veffidas Feaze – plays drums, person of few, but vise words;
  • Gamlin Kizaki – doesn’t sing (what a shocker) and is a solder;

Mainly this is an 3 extra eps for Macross 7 main anime, which I already watched and wrote about. No big surprises just some short separate stories that fill some holes in the story or add some extra action. In my opinion they should have been just ordinary filling eps inside the anime and no separate release was needed, but that’s not for me to decide.

M7E-GirlThe characters are all well known and the same  – the band of Basara and some additional people like parents of Mylene. The first ep fills the hole about Ray and how the band was gathered. Second is just a small reminder that Mylene actually didn’t choose between Basara and Gamlin, so who she will choose? hell ya like I’m just going to tell ya ^.^ I’m not that pretty.. you’ll have to see the ep for that. And the third ep was just some action involving alien girls and of course singing.. And the girl’s mystery (there she is in the picture) is not revealed though she gets some nice shots..

And I guess that’s pretty much it.. I would recommend to watch it right after Macross 7 like its just few more eps..
