I guess it's time to go back topic.

Spoiler for some info in ep3:


As for Ranka's active hair, acorrding to Macross Compendium, it's because her Zentradi lineage.
http://macross.anime.net/wiki/Ranka_Lee

And let me ask my question again. Does Ranka ever have haircut? If she does, how it feels?

Reads Macross wiki...

Eh So she could be a grandkid of Exedol! lol

So during those dacades we have not seen Exedol could have shacked up with a bridge bunny.

Advisor Exedol the Bridge Bunny magnet, thank goodness he's conscious of being an old man. (See Macross 7 Encore first episode)

That's interesting information to keep in mind, thanks.

Well, the story seems to be expanding Ranka's history and the vajra units.

Mixed blood aren't strange in Macross-verse. Mihael is most likely part-Zentradi as well.

The mystery would likely revolve around Ranka's true ((grand)) parentage, if at all.

that common sense because the rate of zeantraedi/Meltrandi suviving the first war is a little more high than the human surviving it

Yeah, especially since she seems to know an original proto-culture song, but with human lyrics added.


like Minmei's "Remember Love" song, which they found in the proto-culture ruin. (i.e. Atlantis)

Beautiful song, i love. it.

it's so sad...haunting.....

a child who can't remember her sad past.......all but a song....that lift her spirit....

*sniff*


can't stop listening to the song now.

I think that it's sad that she got a "brother" because he felt guilty. She needs therapy.

That song is catchy. I wish that they would release Ranka's single already.

What I want to know is what is her secret.

So hopefully Ozma will spill the beans next week on the Vajra and Ranka.

I'm guessing the Ranka song from 03 (and the second Sheryl song from episode 1) will be on the OST like say Fields of Hope was for the first OST of Destiny and etc. I vastly prefer the version used in the episode to the one used as the ED for the first episode.

If they go with a Ranka Lee song for the 2nd ED (if they switch eds) I'm hoping her version of Do You Remember Love is the B-Side to that single. Even though it's not in the originals league I still liked Kanno's arrangement for that version.

For someone who seemed so carefree at first, she does have a really sad past, doesn't she?

It was nice to see her smile again when she saw Alto; she looked pretty down in the trolley car right after she was released from the hospital.

I *still* feel the pairing for her and Alto works better; both her and Alto seem to match and need one another more, which ep. 3 highlighted well. Yes, yes, I know Sheryl will get quality time too, but that's just what I feel right now.

I also wonder what exactly happened out there when her family was killed, and why Ozma feels such a special responsibility for her. And how the rest of the military fits into this?

Exactly what I want to know from this show. Leon looked a bit fishy after after he saw Ranka's picture. I think he knows something.

About the song Ranka was singing on the hill, was it in japanese? I couldn't tell.

Zentradi with independently mobile hair? That means that some of them are literally "muscle heads"

Say, can anyone make out the profile on Ranka Leon was reading [ep3]? It does mention her age, work place and physical stats. The rest of her personality profile looks "engrish" >_<

Onizuka-GTO:yeah, great post WD, but also puzzled. if it's a race you see, okay then. but at the moment it's a one man race, with Suzuku doing timed laps against his personal best....
WhiteWings:To this day I don't know what the insanity behind the decision to release the first GSD ending. My God that was without a doubt the worst ending I had ever seen in my life in a anime series.
Blizzer: He already has special powers called super pheromone powers which makes him irresistable to Sekirei's in heat.

Could Ranka be the love child between Guld Goa Boaman (half-zen) and Myung (songestress) one nighter? [after he saves her from the fire] of macruss plus??

a reason i think this is that Ranka "Lee", the Lee part is not her real family name but the adopted name,

and it would make her 1/4 zentran (but the age doesnt add up, she should be 18 not 15)

anyways, Your thoughts people?
