The “Galactic Fairy”, Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier, celebrated her birthday last November 23, and the “Otaku Capital” of Akihabara celebrated her birthday with plenty of flair, even though the series already ended five years ago, further proving that Macross Frontier is still one of the most popular mecha series out there.


Various Sheryl Nome cosplayers were seen throughout Akihabara promoting various Macross events that were taking place that day. Of course, her friend and (love) rival, Ranka Lee was there as well.

Volks Akihabara meanwhile previewed their new Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee Dollfie Dream dolls as fans lined up to sign for pre-orders. One huge ad was even seen right outside. They also let fans sign birthday greetings for the beloved galactic idol.
