OD, I'm gonna look forward to reading your perception of Alto's blatant jealousy since I also can't think of a scene where he got jealous over Ranka. The closest was when he saw her with Michael and it hit me more as a concern from his part.

Outside the story though, here's a magnificent jealous shot of Alto for you lol

Unless Grace is the government of Galaxy and everyone living on it are plotting against Sheryl, then maybe Sheryl doesn't deserve to be with Galaxy. I don't think so. Though there may be bad vibes around it, there's always going to be victims from Galaxy---victims such as the residents living in it.

I don't think Alto has shown jealousy over anything, other than being jealous that Michael was kicking butt and taking names in Valkyries before Alto could.

Don't be silly. He's obviously jealous of Brera and how his stylish outfit exposes him from neck to waist.

It's the back of him he's looking at, it has to be his @ss.

No kidding, both Alto and Ranka are staring at the same spot. You have to wonder what they are looking at.

I call it Altos great evasive maneuvers:

Ep 6- Situation: When Ranka ask if Alto was at Zentraedi mall alone. Result: Evaded when Alto lied and said that he was indeed alone.

Ep10-Situation: Meeting Ranka on the set with Sheryl. Result: Shot down by Sheryl after trying to hide himself in the background.

Ep11- Situation: Told his father has fallen il and that there is a chance of settle things if he shows up on his birthday. Result: Evaded- Ran to Galia 4 without a word.

Ep11- Situation: Invitation from Ranka to spend time on his birthday. Result: Evaded- Ran to Galia 4, got Mikhail as a substitute without having to decline Ranka himself.

Not to say that he always run away, because from time to time he does tackle things head on. However there is a pattern of evading the issue when faced with awkward situation such as declining Ranka or facing his father.
And what advice does he give Ranka in episode 13? To run away from her problems, what a healthy relationship this is going to be!

I highly doubt those innocent citizens are still alive (I wouldn't be surprised if the actual colony got destroyed in the Varja attack, while the Battle Galaxy + support fleets are still around) and even if they were they will have a hard time of surviving in the final battle. Just let the Sheryl Galaxy ending go, it's not going to happen, pin your hopes on Michael or Brera because that's all you have left. This reminds of True Tears where people in a certain faction where trying to hook up one lead with Jun

And please don't say Sheryl fans did the same with Ranka and Brera, from what I saw it was Ranka fans who gave up after episode 7 who were pushing that angle, you included miss "I don't wanna talk about Ranka".

That is a pretty pic. While I have not seen a jealous Alto at all in the anime up to this point, I bet with Brera announcing himself to Frontier and coming into the picture Alto will probably get some jealousy shots. He doesn't like Brera afterall (he keeps swooping in and stealing all his thunder). Doubt he'll appreciate Brera hanging around Ranka. Hopefully he'll let it go when they all find out Brera is her brother.

Brera being her brother doesn't change the fact he has a better machine than Alto's, so no, the jealousy isn't going to go away.

Hehehe, but he might be more inclined to be nicer for Ranka's sake.

True. Alto and Brera will have to battle it out to see who can win the VF-27's heart.

There is no contest there....the V-27 is madly in love with Brera. Maybe it'll have a one night stand with Alto, but in the end BreraxV-27 will be the ultimate couple.

BreraxV-27 FTW!!!

Even ani_d and BleachOD should acknowledge this pairing.

Yes, once the VF-27 learns of Alto's VF-wrecking habit, the relationship will be over.

Alto will only be with the vf 27 because the mechanic for the vf 25 sabotaged it, than while getting repaired the vf 25 realizes how much it misses Alto *sniff*

Thad scene in the lockers was pretty obvious, wasn't it? I'm certainly sure he likes girls, but it's just he is a bit asexual, like Leia in Star Wars.

Or, maybe he's even bisexual. I really don't care :3.

In any case, he's not a pervert, nor some sort of "Don Juan", like Michel is . He's just more calm than usual.

The same way I promote IchiRuki. Alto behaves as if Ranka is the one he cares most for. Behavior is key!

What part are you not understanding? Alto has been emasculated. ..

Behavior is key but how do you not know that he isn't treating Ranka like a little sister?
