If you like Macross style dogfights, i highly recommend checking out Macross Zero OVA and Sentou Yousei Yukikaze. One of the best aerial dogfights anime i have seen.

As for Alto, i think he's ok... not as emo as some other pilots i have seen, just a bit touchy on the subject of his ummm feminine look. I'm sure most guys would get a bit miffed when people mistake them for a girl even if it's a beautiful girl.

Also points for him for feeling sorry for poor Gilliam(?) that got squished in the first episode :P

From episode two it looks like his frustration is more pent up than just looking a bit girlish...

It's too true. Thinking Jenius's family go into a family war, they need at least two dozens of Hikaru's as warmups.

A phenomenon that started with a mistype at 4chan.

Mistyped "GAR for" instead of "GAY for".

Basically a male character oozing with manliness that makes you want to aim to be like that guy.

So it's the antethesis of the female character MOE.



Anyway Gattai fansubs is bit clunky for all my media players.

I'll wait for a better version.

Oh yeah the Basara song Woot!

After all these yeas I'm still hooked.

This is the guy that wooed an entire fleet of Meltrandi.

A real typical example of Gar is the main characters of Gurren Lagann. Basically if he seems real passionate, manly, hell, plain admirable (in a masculine way) he's Gar.

Gar can also refer to cold blooded masculine characters, but that sort doesn't tend to appear as much in Mecha shows.

I'm thinking both Alto and Mikhail have good Gar potential

I'm definitely thinking we'll see Alto's family Kabuki background clash with his wanting to be a pilot at some point.

Alto really reminds me of Kanda from D-Grayman.

I can see why you'd say that. They have the exact same hair style.

If Alto hates being called princess, why doesn't he just get a goddamn hair cut? That's my only complaint I have with the series.

Even with a hair cut, i'm pretty sure he'll still be labeled Princess. Hair's not the main part of it, his looks & past are.

QFE.
i was about to ask the same question. but the answer is if he was to get a haircut all the yaoi fangirls would move along.
my other complain is about the 2 schoolmate of alto looking like crap, what the hell is up with a boy with pink on his cheeks getting a valkiri.

My first thought would probably be that he still has to work for his family. It's a family business so he's still got to help out his family earn money.

The boy still has dreams of flying, but his family is part of the trade (and I suspect it's a tradition thing as his father's name is Saotome Ranzo XVIII out of all things). Sure he could be rebellious, but he doesn't seem to be a delinquent either as he's able to achieve honours and all.

And we can't forget the dramatic "cut my hair" scene to symbolize how he is a new person sometime during the series! Last few examples of that I've personally seen was in Eureka Seven (woman though) and the Ps2 Tales of the Abyss RPG (long haired dude!).

When I saw Alto struck that pose in Episode 4, I thought: Oh, hes done. Thats it.

And of course it does not help to see him featured on Oekaki boards as a female. Now we will just have to brace ourselves for the publication of Shota doujins.
