Sheryl's tough to beat because they've successfully created both a professional and personal life for her. It's like she's two times the character because of it.

Eh, don't ya think most of the characters listed above were... more or less, 1 dimensional. Or at most, 1.5 dimensional? The one Gundam 'heroine' that came across as interesting in recent memory was Flay. Although I never liked her, and she was rather pitiful. But, such was the intention, and what a successful result Flay became.

But Sheryl is... muahahahaha~~~

> 4tran your love for her is great
> tak yes i heard about her nationality; (i forgot about nations in macross universe? i'll ask for it in the proper thread)

i like her because she's .. da woman! i hope we can see more characters like that in anime!
for a girl like me, it's REALLY refreshing to see her, she's feminine, she's fun, she has confidence, she's her own chief, she has goals and she moves toward them.

i'm like in a war against anime girls like "childhood heroine where the otaku hero fall when he sees her cooking with an apron", or the ado who'll say "no i don't like you hentai baka" until the last episode (bad tsundere incarnations, i mean) things like that.

sheryl is totally what i wanted to see for years.

Wouldn't worry about Sheryl cooking. Not that she wouldn't mind trying to just to see what its like, but seriously.... she's got people for that :P

I do like her cause she's playful but can be all business when she wants to. The heroine characters i really hate are the ones that start out awesomely tough but gradually turn into the house mom that's powerless. GRRRRR...

Really don't see that happening to Sheryl though POWER TO THE UNIVERSE!

A repost from the other thread since I think this place is far more appropriate to reflect my thoughts:

Quote:
I had been wondering and suspecting whether Sheryl actually liked to sing at all in the first place. Unlike Ranka, her path to stardom does not come naturally and I had been thinking if she was merely handpicked and trained/raised to become a songstress instead of wanting to become one. Similar to Alto who became a Kabuki and was successful but in truth, loved flying more than acting.

This itself was reflected in episode 5 when she quietly commented on Ranka's success in Fomo and her somber exchange with Alto behind the stage in episode 6 that hinted her youth.

Exactly.

Which is why I am ever-hopeful that the Fire Valkyrie is going to fly out of nowhere sometime and start popping off Speaker Pods.
Which makes me wonder if Sheryl actually met the guy as a child.

Obviously she's not a copy cat like British Bomber or Fire Bomber American.

Like Alto she doesn't like being contained by colony.

Here comes a guy traveling the galaxy in his red valkyrie, singing to move mountains and the universe.

Sheryl likes to have freedom like that.

Imagine little Sheryl like Pedro emulating what she sees in thew Galaxy Network namely Nekki Basara.

Hence... LISTEN TO MY SONG!

In episode 5 itself she also said that people sing or fly because they can't do otherwise.

It means that she sang because that's only thing she can and wanted to do.

She compared her passion for singing to Alto's passion for flying, she loved to sing from the start and worked hard for it.

I just rewatched episode 8, and I noticed that they really emphasize on Sheryl's remaining earring.

Maybe as the series progresses, when Alto and Sheryl get closer, he'll get her an earring to recomplete the set.

With the earrings being from her mother, I don't think they'll have quite the same value to her.

Unless the Alto x Sheryl pairing comes true, in which case she'd have one from her love and one from her mother, which would be nice.

Unless I missed something we don't actually know how her path to stardom went. Although going by her reaction on saying "on their own whim" the second time in episode 5 it may not have been an enjoyable experience even though she loves music.

I'm beginning to feel sorry for Mikhail.

Now he has not one but two mavericks in his Ex-gear squadron.

The Queen and the Princess. lol

Yeah, let's now hope Sheryl is a hybrid of Nomes and Jenius's, that would explain her passions in singing and piloting.

I'm not sure she's developped a passion for piloting. I think she just figures flying in Ex-gear makes a great hobby. Who wouldn't?

There would be amusement park rides with more G force than that catapult....
