I love the word "vocation". Etymologically, it's similar to "voce" (voice). Literally, it's a "calling."

When Sheryl answers Alto's question about the reasons why people choose to sing or fly in...

I read your point. I just don't see the significance of it.

I don't think that being independent is at odds with having romantic relationships. If you have two fiercely independent people, they...

There are infinitely many unexplored "what ifs" out there. What if Sheryl never meets Alto? What if the two meet in a scenario where Sheryl is married to Brera with three children? What if Sheryl...

Home is an abstract concept. In Alto and Sheryl's case, it's not a question of where, but rather a question of how it's perceived. I would recommend looking to episode 23 to get a sense of what...

While Minmay may or may not have been interested, Hikaru never asked her for an answer either way. It's really only in actually expressing how he had felt about her, late in the series, that her own...

For good or for ill, music (and by extension, culture) is a weapon in Macross. The war with the Zentradi in SDFM is perhaps the best example of this. You don't need force to subjugate a people, you...

That seems to suggest that military personnel cannot have successful relationships with civilians. Or pop idols with, well, common folk.

Every relationship involves obstacles to be navigated and...

Hikaru's inaction decides the triangle in SDFM. Most of his 'relationship' with Minmay (or rather his concept of her) ends up taking place in his head, because he chooses to mope from a distance...

I'm not quite sure where you're taking this line of reasoning, LMK, but I feel that I need to make a few points.

First, vocal pathology aside, people don't ever really "stop" singing. It's a...

It can be hard enough to admit to ourselves when we're dying, let alone having to tell a loved one. Nobody enjoys feeling vulnerable in front of others.

It doesn't even need to be a safety concern. If you were creating a dance troupe, you'd want to hold auditions and pick out the best dancers that you could afford to hire. If you were running a play,...

Actually, that scene itself shows how fatigued she is. Think back to episodes 18-20 - she's collapsed several times before, and that was simply from everyday exertions. In episodes 24-25, she's been...

By "personal progress", are you referring to Ranka's character development or her career advancement? The latter is perhaps the more applicable of the two.
