Sheryl suprising and probably misunderstanding a conversation about Ranka smells -Hugely- of a typical Macross red herring, specially with Alto not saying anything to confirm/deny, and Klan possibly talking about a Brotherly love toward Ranka.

We shall see

Can't wait for the Luna translation, I'll probably won't be able to wait and will watch the crappy gg work though.

Grace's initial research was to combine her network in conjunction with the vajra fold quartz network to accomplish... something awesome, I guess.

To do this, apparently she wants to engineer someone who can meld with the vajra network. Ranka was a product of this.

Presently, Ranka has melded into the Vajra hivemind, and that has made Grace very very happy. It's possible she has nanomachines in Ranka and by hijacking Ranka she can hijack the Vajra.

It's possible that Ransha Mei is also melded into the network, which would explain why Ranka was able to see her in one episode
As some of the fans already mentioned in various threads, Kawamori was indeed inspired by the book Ender's Game and the sequels that followed. Dling the episode as I write.

Are u sure it's a) Alto's going to kill his love Ranka, or b) Alto's going to kill Ranka in order to protect his love (Frontier, people, sky, etc...) ?

do i remember correctly that, from the preview, seems like Sheryl is going to sing? any idea what she will be singing this time?

guess that both paper planes and the songs should have some kind of symbolic significance to it...

after this episode, somehow, i like Northern Cross even more.

I can think of only one song that describes her mentality right now... Lion

but they might reveal yet another new song

"Last Frontier" could very well be a song title

or maybe it's Admiral Anokee's "It's a good day to die" XD

Yes, because saying that you might want to take in consideration the things that were actually *said* in the episode is a deadly insult now.

Your assumption is wrong Seifall. Silence is not an admission unless careful circumstances are obtained.To assume that he is love with Ranka when those circumstances aren't meant is a very poor way to form an argument and is the worst kind of evidence. You are saying that Alto loves Ranka. You are jumping the gun just like people were jumping the gun last week with Sheryl. . The scene wasn't meant to be conclusive in nature. It was supposed to set up the final. Ranka told Alto she loves him. He didn't answer. Sheryl basically told him she loves him. The ball is in his court. The second fallacie of logic comes from making specific conclusions based on generalized information. "His Love" is very ambigious in way of statement. I don't think you can make the conclusion that Alto loved Ranka all the time.

There are also a couple of misdirections in that conversation that should be a red light. Is alto the type of person to say that something like "all be by your side" and not mean it? Is alto the type of person to be with Sherly just because she is sick? All important questions that matter to the conclusion of this certain element. This isn't over not by a long shot.

And with this I join the discussion (or rather write my statement here). After watching the raw I wonder (or not) why so many people are upset.

As Sinta says, this is an set up episode for the final. Macross is a drama series, so what did you expect? Some lovey dovey stuff between Alto and Sheryl?
Alto said nothing about loving Ranka (whoever said that didn't understand the line correctly).
The director just wanted to dramatise everything - I don't see any reason to panic here..
Which btw reminds me of the Rosario Vampire thread, where people discussed about being affected by too emotional stuff :P

Relax and wait for the final - as it went till now we'll definitly don't know who Alto will choose before the series is over.
Besides - making Alto only care for Sheryl cause of pity would make him a total asshole (sorry for the bad mouthing)..

I believe in context, its B.

Honestly, I'll sit this one out and let the real translators do their thing.

In the episode the presense of the Alto's father and brother is important. Alto is not someone to make promises only for a dying's sake. Alto don't promise to get back to Kabuki for his father.

Watched it.

It's annoying, but this isn't over just yet.

Very true. RC would be quite unbearable with the rabid foaming of "dokun dokun" for the whole week. Best to avoid going there to retain your sanity.

"I love Ranka so much I would like to kill her" makes absolutely no sense in that context.

And that he joined SMS for the power to protect others inspired by Ranka's helplessness is something we already know and directly saw, which has no bearing on the romance.

Sheryl overheard part of their conversation and automatically assumed "his love" referred to Ranka. Sheryl's a ditz by nature and emotionally fragile at the moment. What's your excuse?
Spoiler for Alto:

If you pride yourself so highly above those you've listed who by the way, I agree, have momentary lapses of very poor arguments, as does many people due to a simple thing called PERCEPTION, you'd place more reasonable evidence that isn't "HOMG HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING SO CLEARLY NOTHING HAPPENED THAT NIGHT!!!!!!! TAKE THAT SHERYL SCUMS!"

At least have SOME pride in your intelligence for chrissakes.
I think we can agree here. I do not wanted to offend Sheryl's fan, just speak my mind about those who accused me of giving irrational prooves and really insulted me back then .

And you are trying to pick a fight with people from last week, so yes you are attempting to troll.
OK, always the same same chorus....
I didn't understand anything if that's you want
Nothing happenned ? what are you talking about ? The kiss or Alto's revelation ?
I think you're talking about the kiss scene.
If they clearly showed Alto 's true feelings about Ranka, I don't know for you, but the kiss, logically didn't happen.
I told people " true beginning " ... they said I'm talking nonsense...

Ex-cuse me? We had far more ammunition this week. The last thing is a not-very-unobvious red herring to stretch the du-angle, sorry, triangle out two more weeks.

Dramatic tension... she feels she has failed, we are also to assume that sheīll die soon. Itīs symbology to show her despair.

I feel sorry that you cannot see how the storyline is being woven, but what is, is.

Funny thing is, the only time love is mentioned is when Klan asks him... and in my belief when she said it she wasn't referring to as Ranka is the one Alto loves.

Honestly that's a red herring if I've ever seen one.

Isn't it obvious? If that was what Klan thought he meant, she would have flying kicked him off that ledge for Ranka AND Sheryl's sake to rid the world of an inhuman wretch.
