Aw, crap. I liked that dinghy, too.

Oh, well. Let me sing the Nanase chant one last time:
Nanase-san wa kawaii!
Nanase-san wa kirei!
Sekai ichi no bishojo: Nanase-san!

Nanase-san wa yasashii!
Nanase-san wa saikou!
Sexy, lovely, my angel: Nanase-san!


Okay. That's that.

Permission to board, Cap'n.

That was a very energetic song As for getting ripped to shreds <_< I really don't think you need to worry about that in the Ranka Fan Club (can't say the same about the Sheryl Fan Club though ) since we are as passive as Ranka herself

Hmmm... you do realize that your last statement doesn't sound all that flattering, right?

Does anyone else feel that Sheryl┤s link to Mao is unnecessary? Why couldn┤t Sheryl be just some random poor child than ran into a mad scientist and a couple of earrings?

More like no-one felt the link was unnecessary, because if that was the case, then there wouldn't be Macross Frontier.

There is a reason why Sheryl's lineage was important, because as the descendant of the Nome bloodline, she came from a clan that possessed the ability to communicate with the Vajra. That is precisely why Grace utilized her as an experiment. Moreover, the earrings were more than just a symbol, they most likely aided the process. If she was just some random poor child, then Grace would have just overlooked her.

Going through my nostalgia hunt today, one character that greatly reminds me of Sheryl is Jem, my girlhood idol.

Blond/Pink hair, singer, magic earrings, divalicious and fashionable (for the 80s that is) blue-haired love interest.

Sigh...good times.

I felt it unnecessary myself. Though the recent radio drama does make great strides in explaining why they bothered with it, having to do with Graces relationship with Mao. So it's kind of balanced out. I don't remember her linage having anything to do with the vajra. The Nome's had power, but Sheryl showed nothing until the V-virus better manifested itself. The earrings were fold quartz, and tie into that plot thread. I still greatly dislike adding the earrings to Zero for the BDs. They could have easily made it some new family. It's just seems a throwaway to Zero.

Well, why bother naming Sheryl "Nome" in the first place, if it wasn┤t a reference back to Macross Zero? I would have loved for them to expound on it much more in the series itself, but in the greater context of what was happening, it made sense.

Count me on the side who liked the connection between Mao and Sheryl.

I like the connection a lot more now given the Grace angle. Though I wouldn't have minded it simply being a red herring. Sort of like Edgar La Salle. In fiction, it's pretty much a certainty, but still, who's to say.

In Macross Zero it was shown that the Nome family had the ability to communicate with the Vajra in some form.

Therefore, it was not surprising for Grace to pick up Sheryl, a specific individual with a specific power. Again, had Sheryl been random kid #A, then Grace probably wouldn't bother. Moreover, Grace obviously did not know Sheryl had not the power her ancestors had. What she knew for sure was that Sheryl was a Nome, and Nomes without an exception all had some sort of communication capability with the Vajra.

It was meant to be a throwaway to Zero. Episode 10 of Frontier was not random.

Okay, it's been awhile since I've seen Zero, but there's no Vajra in it last I checked. They weren't even encountered until Frontier. There's the bird human, but that's still not fully explained. Plus, if the Nome's could communicate on a level with the vajra, why couldn't Sheryl until the v virus took hold?

According to the spoilers above, the sole reason Grace picked Sheryl was a

I'm not sure where you're getting at there. I never commented on the episode. Though that one had some odd moments.

The bird human is a Vajra. If you check the details, the bird human shares the same... for the lack of a better description, birthmark as the rest of the Vajra race.

Obviously because Grace assumed that by being one of the Nome alone would allow Sheryl to communicate with the Vajra. However, Grace sought to amplify that ability, and her ambition was to control the Vajra not just to communicate with them. Unfortunately for Grace, she was mistaken on many levels.
