Ranka proved to be an interesting person. Not your stereotypical lolita jailbait. This one has personality.

Although I did have a problem with her initially. You see, I miss the days of the straight-forward warrior Meltlandis. If they weren't pushing buttons, they were definitely pulling triggers. Milia wouldn't have gone through this sentimental exchange! She would have SHOT YOU! I wonder if anyone felt this way.

Not to mention, after decades, the Melts apparently now produce their offspring in cute and lovable varieties, some come with Elvish features (where did THAT came from?). Woe, how the mighty has fallen!

Alright, this sounds a lot better, and I apologize for my misunderstanding. But I still don't like the idea Sheryl mentally dependent on Alto. Sheryl is mistress and Alto is her slave; this is how I interpret their relationship.

To Love RU is an otaku title with fanservice I believe that airs Fridays at 1:55 AM on a school day. So there you have it the power of otaku and fanservice on school day ratings.
But Frontier has plenty of fanservice and you just said otakus will be buying the dvds.. still for that market an 0.3% share for Macross compared to To Love Ru's 3.2% when they air 30 mins apart isn't a good look. They aren't competing against each other...

Again, since there is a female segment, Ranka is prob going to receive the sympathy since Ranka x Alto is the perceived budding couple at the onset with Sheryl being the wrench.
I'm sure she will get sympathy unless she pulls a Minmei when her star rises but I really don't see her doing that but who knows. But budding couple isn't canon so people shouldn't hold that against Sheryl, it's not like she knows about their "budding" relationship. If you want to blame anyone blame Alto but like I said it's not official.

There's plenty actually, I see Sheryl as Misa if she was a pop idol in the mold of Sharon Apple. Both are perfectionists, both have pretty much devoted their lives to their chosen profession (I wouldn't be surprised if Sheryl's only real friend is her manager Grace) and climbed to the top in their fields due to their abilities. Also they both get off to a bad start with the male lead and clash with them. Also if anyone's going to pull a Misa and say choose one of us it will more than likely be Sheryl.

Anyway keep watching Macross and you'll see Minmei utterly dominate it character wise for most of the first half and like I said she's still the most important person in the show even after the triangle develops. Did people even assume Hayase was a romantic interest back in the day? I was like 6-7 when I first watched this so I really didn't see her that way until th 2nd half...

I'm not sure if you noticed, but in episode 4, Alto and Ranka's names were both listed at the top of the credits.

Not that the cast order determines the LT, I mean Noe was listed second in True Tears and you know what happened lol
That's actually the first time she was listed above Sheryl, if they are going by the episodes content she really should've been listed about Sheryl in 2 and 3 as well.. and yeah true about True Tears lol.

The ears seem to be a generalized post-DYRL update to the Zentraedi look, to help differentiate them from the Terrans. Guld has the pointy ears too, and he's from 1995. It definitely isn't limited to Frontier.

I think that the ears are cute. Too bad Ranka doesn't have any ears like that.

maybe contact with humanity triggered a hidden genetic cue that made them sprout pointy ears?

and make Meltran breasts grow bigger?

because back then they weren't as big as Emiya Jenius or Quran's!!! Female hormones kicking in after an absence of natural reproduction and 3,000+ yrs of stagnant cloning?

@onizuka about the ears I recall the silent zentari drum playing woman from macross 7 having pointy ears.

as for the breast this is anime there are 10 year old girls with breast.

about ranka I like how the writers use her as a foil to sheryl.

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.

I would 'THINK' girls would have 'breasts' at the age of 10... although I have yet to identify anyone in 'this' anime who is '10'

Absolutely, she pulled it off beautifully in Episode 5. Kudos to whoever made the casting selection.

As for surpassing Sheryl in any way would be a different matter altogether. She provides an excellent alternative, but comparing her to Sheryl is like comparing apples to oranges. I consider them both to be unique.

Still, nothing rules out a possible duet.
