Macross Frontier The Movie's Awesome Promo Campaign

Macross Frontier The Movie: The False Songstress premiered in Japan two days ago (November 21st), and I bet some of you living there must have watched it already ^^

This posting isn't about the movie itself, but the massive promo for it as seen at various train stations in Japan, including Shinjuku Station (新宿駅) and Ikebukuro Station (池袋駅).

Even all the Valkyries get to have a share on the pillars, but no Klan Klein? ^^

No sparing for every door of the train. ^^

No kidding at all. ^^; With a campaign like this, even train stations can be turned into tourist locations, for people from other places to see the massive influence of anime in the everyday life of Japanese. ^^

I wonder if we'll get to see the same treatment for Setsuna, Lockon, Allelujah, Tieria and all the new Gundams when the movie version of Gundam Double O hits the theaters next year. ^^
