"Uta Macross Sma-Pho De-Culture” had announced the "Walküre's Song Macross Original Costume" project on Dec. 2019.
The "members themselves" had participated in the first costume project and assisted in creating the new costume. The comments from the members to the fans on the costume they created have arrived.
<Below are the full comments>
As I wanted to see a collaboration between two patterns, so I had make use of the check pattern and polka dot!
Right now, Mikumo tied her hair on top and is a lot more cold than usual, but garter rings accessory make her look so sexy...
Do enjoy the game with the costume designed by us. I will enjoy it as well!
As the new costumes are based on a swimsuit, I had designed it but aiming to be a bit plain yet sexy and with the thought of "I wanted her to wear a school swimsuit!" It had become quite fancy, isn't it...!? Since Freyja doesn't have an impression of doing her hair, so I had designed her hair according my own preference. Since her hair is short, doesn't it look amazingly cute if it was tied up!? Please be healed by the angel-like Freyja..!??
The idea that I came out with for Kaname's latest costume was, "The beauty and elegant like a goddess"! The highlights are the palm and arm with the goddess motif and the visible string that can be seen from the bikini. The skirt that is wrapped on her waist expressed her sisterly feel. I got so excited after looking at the final product of the aggressive chain on her chest.
Since Reina had never revealed her forehead before, I had to try my best to had her bang tied up♪
Her favorite jellyfish is there as well (Haha) My personal highlights are the hook-like accessory on the waist of the bikini! Doesn't it look so sexy?
I am satisfied as it turns out exactly like the cute design!!!
The position is a bit different, but the rabbit had been recreated on the waist as well! Haha
Thank you so much for cutely expressing the lenient Makina.

It has been one month since the fall 2020 anime season started.
Not only the main story of TV anime but also the theme songs that show the world of the title in 1 minute 30 seconds attract a lot of attention. Since many anime titles have been released during the fall of 2020, we have a wider variety of songs than usual. Which theme song among that variety caught the hearts of fans?
Here, at Anime! Anime!, we conducted a reader survey entitled "Which song among the theme songs of the fall 2020 anime titles do you like the most?" We received responses from 253 people during the survey period from November 3 to November 10.
The male-female ratio is about 40% for males and about 60% for females. About 50% of the age group were minors, and about 25% were in their 20s.
This time, we will announce the results for ED.
■ "Jujutsu Kaisen" is topping the list of OP and ED!
1st place goes to "LOST IN PARADISE feat. AKLO" by AKI from "Jujutsu Kaisen" with an approval rating of about 10%.
Many readers explained the reason behind their votes as a good matching of song and anime, "The pop-song fits well with the main characters resting on their day off", "I like the touch of characters' everyday life pictures. It is so cool, I could watch anime just for ED", and "The characters' dance matches to the song really well! I can watch it forever!"
2nd place goes to "Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle - Rhyme Anima" with an approval rating of about 9%.
Readers seem to enjoy the differences of each of the versions, "Passionate lyrics make you feel deep bonds between members of the division", "It is interesting how each division has its own individuality", and "They are all way too cool."
Some readers pointed out often appearances of the band, "You can't talk about 'Haikyu!!' without SPYAIR. It was their first ED, although before the band was in charge of three OPs, and I think they are essential music for this title. Great lyrics, inspired by the story, and music that makes you dance are the best combination!". Many readers liked ED's performance, "The highlights of this week are the best. I also like the moments from previous matches."
Moreover, in the men vote only, 1st place went to "Is the Order a Rabbit?", 2nd place to "Love Live!
