The Official Alto and Ranka Discussion Thread
haha I see your point and actually I think the same as you....we have some examples of these situations :
*when the two girls begin singing What 'bout my star and he was trying to pay the same attetion to both of them or when he doesnt' want to dissapoint Ranka and he said that he went alone to the shopping center( episode 5) but he was there with Sheryl
I think it's something like "I love you, but if you commit huge sin and you have crossed the point of no return, at least let me be the one to kill you"..it's not that special, I heard of other ppl saying something similar in other anime/drama
Klan just notices Alto's decision for making that ultimate sacrifice, and hence she asks him that "famous" question (The famous question almost single handedly brings the macross forum in animesuki to hell XD)
And as we know, when Alto gets the slightest hint that Ranka can be saved, he goes to save her instantly
and in addition we have good reason for supporting polygamy in MF
1) They are not going to have a nice little trip..they are going to explore, make new colony, encounter unknown disease from the universe and fight alien!! You need as many babies as possible
2) The ship gathers different races, aliens from every corner of the universe, you can't say polygamy cannot be allowed because well...chinese and japanese (just an example) don't like it
That's my take...so in my viewpoint, Alto chooses both Ranka and Sheryl at the end, and they live happily ever after..no point to have any resolution!!!!
I think is the whole conversation about his motives and as you said because she saw Alto's attitude.
I see this: Alto wants to have his Backup.. is like I am not with you but just in case I don't want to lose you either
The point of no return that sounds like the phamtom of the opera :P
But I want a resolution :'( hahaha but it is possible that we are not gonna have one .
I had a thought. Episode 23 Klan asked Alto Sore wa omae no ai ka? I realized she might not have said that because Alto said he will kill Ranka. She might have said that because of Alto's body language when he said Ranka had to be killed. What do you think?? Or was that really what happened and I've just recently realized it now?
Honestly, I think that Klan said that because when she began the conversation with him, he was reminiscing all the times he spent with Ranka. I agree that the body language also has something to do with it but you can tell by the tone of his voice and the way he spoke of Ranka. Klan realized this as well, hence the question
I really wish that they had resolved this triangle with the way they were handling it, it just felt unnatural not to have a resolution.
I'm not a huge fan of polygamy at all >_<
Hello a gift from my friend OD it's avatar and Alto banner that she had fan shaded
OD would also like to invite you to her fan club. She hopes you will come to discuss MF with her
Reload this Page AltoXRanka Fanclub *The Hime & The Loli* (Macross Frontier)
She also wants to know if you have any info on the movie?
Welcome to the club. i don't think sheryl is advantage at the last episode..
when you say body language was it when klan saw alto staring at ranka's portrait or you were only refering to their conversation???
i don't support polygamy it just hard to accept alto being in love with two girls at the same time i can't comprehend it at all..
If the love triangle will resolve in the movie, who is your bet???
hmm shall we have a betting game here??? lol..
thanks for the links
i'm joining there...
Hey! Long time no see
Also, I think Mei-chan was referring to Alto's body language right after he said that he would kill Ranka if the Vajra were using Ranka as a tool to destroy Frontier. If the love triangle were to be resolved I'd rather not bet on any of the girls because I hate getting my hopes up XD I'll definitely be rooting for Ranka all the way though.
Thanks for the avatar and banner pics
I'll be joining you guys there as well. Could you actually do me a favor? Could you let those guys over there know about this Fan Club as well because we could use more people here
Don't get me wrong guys, if anything--I have a dream, a dream that one day Ranka will be Alto's only official gf..it's just that open ending/polygamy will be my second choice
As I stated before, my preference of ending for the movie:
Ranka's ending -->open ending/polygamy -->Alto's death -->Alto's painful death -->Alto's slow and painful death --> Sheryl's ending
And our club is not doing that bad..(I wonder how many ppl join this club because they see my signature (enter self-flattering mode
even tho you are not asking my opinion, but if I have to bet, I will bet for Ranka of course--I mean, I support her since deculture ep 1, why should I stop right now??
I will be joining as well..and that club's pic look similar lol...she got that pic from here?? XD (I remember I chopped Sheryl off from that pic
My wish is that Alto ends up with Ranka
and Amirali I'll join too.
I think she is in episode 22 and part of episode 23 but everything changes so fast in MF :P ....I am not saying that the advantage was huge, as I mentioned before Alto always had Ranka on his mind after all Ranka was the first who told him " I loved you" and " I wanted to be always with you" that counts
im a fan of ranka and alto, a huge fan. i just join this group . but i just need to get this out of my chest. a closure you could say.
reasons why its gonna be altoxsheryl.....
1) the huge massive fans of sherylxalto
2) if this is like any other anime, will follow popularity
3) the pinkish hair always gets the guy (dunno why but it seems like a trend in the japan)
4) the company want to make money money money, so conclusion sherylalto
5) sad history, not having anyone and icing on the cake, dieing heroines always gets the guys
6) loli-or little girls always seem the 2nd character in romance anime
7) little girls could never win against seemingly grown up women with pink hair
8) money loss that would occur if company does not abide to fan mania
huh........that feels good. i really like alto and ranka but i just got a feeling its gonna be sheryl and alto. since so many fans of this coupling couldn't help but reinstate many many times its gonna be sheryl alto. if not the pink hair, its bcause ranka's a little girl. if not that, the hikaru and missa signature, if not that, all those kisses. i mean they just turn a blind eye to all ranka alto moments or they even have the nerve of saying those moments were just platonic or nothing to mush over. huh but thats how i feel. i haven't had a heart of watching the macross movie. but i will continue to support rankaxalto!!!
hahah tsk tsk colol XD That's some angst you got there. The only reasonable statement I've seen from the list of your worries is the popularity=money issue. It will stink helluva lot if they concluded everything based on popularity. Hellllluvalot. But NO FEAR. SherylxAlto ain't gonna happen because nothing is going to get concluded in the movie. Kawamori will stay a yellow-belly and not disappoint both fans. You saw the last episode. You saw how Alto and Ranka welcomed Sheryl in their alliance. It'll be a triangle through and through.
Ya know if they're just going to base conclusion on popularity say "hey sheryl has more votes than ranka here let's just go to her we'll approximately make more money by 49554 yen" Then hell no, forget concluding anything then
There's no fun in that ya see.
Welcome to the club!!!
I canít agree with your reasons Iím sure itís not always the case and besides they have this kind of thought that who ever the first girl the guy met will be his partner or something like thatÖ
If there are reasons to consider why it should be sherylxalto itís because of theseÖ
1. Alto declare he will stay by her side forever!!!!
2. Alto wears Sherylís earring I donít know why but for the supporters the earring is somewhat important
3. And like you said those kisses!!!!
I believe there are far more reasons why it should be ranka and alto ending. The episode 1,2,3,4,10,12,14,15,16,21,23,25. showed altoxrankaís feelingÖ hmm..i might missed some episode..but never mind..
hang on, if there were strong moments of sheryl and alto was it on episode 22 and 24??? if so, how can they support the pair??? is it because of Sheryl's overall character? i wonder if i ask the sheryl's supporters how will they respond..
Welcome to the club my friend. I see that you figure it's going to be a Sheryl x Alto ending but like Mei-chan up there said, it's most likely going to be a Triangle ending again because that's just the way it looks right now but you shouldn't be so pessimistic if you're a Ranka fan. I'm not saying to get your hopes up as high as you can but at least support Ranka through and through
In my opinion though, if Ranka can do something in the 2nd movie where not even the Sheryl fans can complain about and then give us a Alto x Ranka ending, then it shouldn't hurt the sales too bad (well I can't say the same for the more passionate Sheryl fans that hate Ranka no matter what.) Either way, Ranka isn't as little as you make her out to be. You make it sound like she's 12. Ranka has a mature mind and she's very modest. I've seen other girls in animes that are loli get the male lead so I don't think it really has much to do with it. This is Kawamori's child so I believe that he'll make something good whether we get a conclusion to the triangle or not.
@gentlewater- You don't have to
*telepathically connects with a SherylxAlto fan's thoughts*
Sheryl and Alto have a more mature relationship. Ranka looks like a kid. There's no chance in that kind of relationship. What Alto and Ranka have going on is just a one-sided crush.
Ranka has NEVER asked Alto about his own circumstances. She just goes on and on about herself. She's selfish. Sheryl, on the other hand, asked about Alto in episode 6, episode 10 and...episode 6.
Ranka's feelings for Alto is a handicap! She's always Alto-kun this, Alto-kun that, Alto-kun this and that. How is this girl going to get any character development with Alto-kun always on her mind??
Alto climbed Ranka's room in the middle of the night and didn't feel like jumping on her on her bed. That's proof that he sees her as a sister.
Ranka is just a damsel in distress. Alto is always saving her butt.
After he kills Ranka, Alto promised Sheryl that he'll come back to her in episode 24. There're no misunderstanding going on at that time. Everything was crystal clear.
Alto worries for Sheryl everytime she gets sick. Alto even went back to his home to check up on Sheryl.
Alto peptalked Sheryl when she lost her fighting spirit because she inspired him and some stranger girl down that tunnel in episode 3.
Alto lets Sheryl boss him around.
Alto became a manservant of Sheryl in her last days.
Alto was going to say something to Sheryl after her kiss in 24. There is a sky high possibility that he's going to say he fell in love with her in those times that he was serving as her manservant.
Ranka killed a lot of people in episode 20 because she couldn't sing. DIDN'T sing. DISQUALIFIED.
Ranka left Frontier and Alto in the middle of a crisis. DISQUALIFIED.
Haha did I miss anything? XD
Ranka illegally owns Ai-kun
Ranka feeds inappropriate food to Ai-kun...she didn't know what Ai-kun can and cannot eat!!!...how could Alto like such a girl!!!
Ranka kept harassing Alto with endless text-messages in episode 4
Ranka and Alto only had two text-messages in episode 4
I didn't make those up, I really saw those posts before...
I don't think Ranka's popularity is that bad, at least the VA of Ranka often performs "Ranka dance" in public
I cheer for Ranka partly because of Minmay...the similarity is there, and I think the director actually wants a Minmay ending too when he creates MF...well we shall see
And slightly off topic, actually Alto has chosen Ranka already in episode 25, please refer to my first post in animesuki to find out why
(that post was a joke, but hey, maybe that's the message the director is trying to send actually XD)
My first post in this forum:
And by the way, thanks Makina Hoshimura for posting new Ranka pics in this club!!!!
minna-san arigatou gozaimasu. *snif *snif i feel so love. being welcome whole heartedly into this club.!!!!!!!!
dex-kun san, i do support rankaxalto even if its gonna be sherylxalto. read the end of my post!! i will support them through and through!!!!
I don't think Ranka's popularity is that bad either...maybe there are more Sheryl fans but we are not that behind
And as I said in other forums I think Ranka is like Minmay in some aspects but she is like Misa in other attitudes as well.
your welcome I'll try to upload more.
I've read too that the liltle girls never win and use the example of the relationship between Misa and Hikaru..but do you remember that Hikaru lived with Minmay in the last episodes?..they shared romantic moments, cute scenes but at the end Hikaru chose Misa.
Alto lived with Sheryl..shared a really nice dinner,etc...based on the comparison with Minmay-Hikaru-Misa then Alto will choose Ranka right?
( and I wish this
I just wrote the example above because the Sheryl Fans who only see the comparisons who leads on Sheryl side are not necessarily true.
Eventhoug I've said that Sheryl has advantage...I think that Alto said " I will stay with you until the end" because her sickness.
For Sheryl fans the earring is a prove that she really cares about him( for all the story behind the earrings).
And the kisses well haha there is chemistry between them...but Sheryl is the one who always was kissing Alto not the other way around.
@ Makina Hoshimura-san
technically your saying that ranka is a version of both minmay and misa combiine together??
Thanks for your wonderful posts I feel like hating Sheryl nowÖ
Iíve just read dex-kunís first post from the other forum and I can tell how people were so against of ranka because of her character development she spent more screen time but didnít grow okay that was fair but for her to be with the guy is different thing. I do believe that the character development is a factor to liking or disliking the character but not to get the guy because of lack character development I think that is an excuse. I asked this question before about when Alto started liking Sheryl but the response I get was very disappointing and I thought maybe they were making fun of me. The only time I saw alto showed a real concern with Sheryl only when he knew about her illness. Looking back at the earlier episodes was there a time that Alto was looking at Sheryl with full of admiration or even concern?? What I remember were those flirty moments, awkward moments, funny moments, there was a particular moment that Alto showed kindness by returning her earring but unlike ranka and alto moments were you can say ohh so sweet or we can say there was a blissful moment.
I believe that ranka is ranka she is different from the old macross girls they might have similarities or similar circumstances but thatís all there is to it.
No I didn't mean that
... as Gentlewater said Ranka is Ranka and there are similarities with other characters(In many episodes of MF are references to other Macross series).What I said is because much people compare her with Minmay and I donīt think she is like Minmay
