I call BS on the Macross Frontier page on TVTropes. Someone inserted that the TV show ended more Ranka-leaning, which made me facepalm so hard.

LOL that was never there last time I read it. It looks like a mad shipper went ahead and added that little opinion.

SINK LOWER, please.

And... various manga? LOL, there had been one manga that was specifically dealing with the subject of romance, and we know it as Sheryl Nome: Kiss in the Galaxy.

Oh gah, you are bringing up bad memories of that executive meddling affair. As long as they don't touch Kira & Lacus, I am happy.

Oh yeah, Japanese fans used to call them the strongest combination. Its something Alto & Sheryl could learn from

Though I cannot deny that K&L lean more toward the ideal side than realistic. At times, their interaction is just downright unreal.

I had my share of heated arguments with Asumey fans back then. That was really wild, back when GSD found ways to heat up discussions about virtually everything, especially the romance part.

When I think of this particular episode 25, I really thought shippers were gearing up for flame wars.

That said, I think it's funny that Shxlxxm ended up getting mentioned...

Well, I'll be... I just noticed that the TV Tropes page for Macross Frontier mentions the whole Shaloom thing and links to this forum ( and of course Macross World ). ^^

Believe it or not, I did a lot of work on revising the Frontier page

You know, even after all these years, I am still amazed on how he was able to fabricate this whole thing up...

Dude, as the guy who unwittingly disseminated Shaloom's BS to the English speaking world by translating it, I still am somewhat aghast at what I've wrought.

Gotta give him props though. He drove us nuts.

And we believed him for a very long time.

Yeah, big props to Yot once again for doing the legwork and exposing the scammer.

Since this is the general discussion and the other threads on the series appear to be closed, I'll post my thoughts about the series here.

Just finished it after watching M Zero.

I give this series a 10.
It was excellent IMHO.
I like how it gave shout-outs to the original Macross (Alto saving Ranka with the VF-25), the Minnmay references, etc.
I like how it tied into Macross Zero, Plus, and to a lesser extent M-7 (though it has been a long time since I've seen 7, so I may have missed a few things here).

I like the love triangle.
I lean towards Sheryl and Alto being a thing, though it seemed to be left open at the end of the series.
I haven't seen the movies yet so please don't spoil it for me if Alto chooses one or the other.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the mecha.
Kawamori and Miyatake have always been favorite mecha designers of mine.

Songs were excellent, which is to be expected from Yoko Kanno (love her work).

What can I say, there's nothing negative I can find in the show.
A few cheesey points, but that's just Macross' comedic side and was fun.

I would personally say that it wasn't really left open, aside from the series just ending before they announced the final result. ^^
