Well, I won't tell you who to like. It is up to you if you want to like Basara. Although for many of us, Basara was the -most- annoying character, yes, even surpassing that of Ranka in terms of pure irritation to ever appear in a Macross franchise.

Here is a character who remained an absolute self-absorbing jerk from start to finish, with little to no character development in between. How can we compare the likes of him to that of Sheryl is beyond me.

I agree fully.

The only thing that Basara has over Sheryl is Firebomber and his Spiritia singing. Other than that, imo, he has nothing.

Gosh, tell me about it. I had to fast forward everytime he goes out singing and the only thing that kept me watching Macross 7 was to find out what happens to Max and Millia. I can't believe it dragged on for 50 episodes +encores and movie.

Yeah, I watched it for Milia and Max too. I actually thought Basara was a supporting character, as it turned out, I was dreadfully wrong

Oh, I love that second one KiNA. It has a Marvel/DarkHorse American comic book style to it. Very nice. Cathy is a hottie. I vote her and Ozma for best couple.

Does this make me a Cathy-shipper?

Then again I can't really hate someone who sings retarded Engrish in the battle field to cause massive alien orgasms X'DDDDD

Not sure if Alto had the same piloting skill to dodge the vajra firing while singing. It might even enrage them more hearing him sing. But then again, who knows what would happen if she/he sings with his kabuki-hime voice.

Alto is holding out on us... I'm betting he's got a killer enka voice.

Plotbunny 9000: at the end of 25, over the ending credits will be Alto's rendition of Diamond Crevasse. You heard it here first.

'Cause he was still awesome. Sorry for the reality slap, but life hurts. When you can end a war that threatens the fate of the galaxy without firing a single shot, you get massive points. Frankly, it doesn't matter how self-absorbed someone is as long as it's not that he only cares about himself. The whole point of his singing was to get people to not blow each other up.

I also notice that so far, I've only/mostly seen Sheryl fans in the Basara-opposition. That seems to indicate a few things. But anyway....

Hmmm.

How about having Sherly pull a Basara? Except to do so, have them repaint Quarter into "Sheryl Macross", add speakers (or whatever is suited for deep space song combat), and let her belt out her song with her hopes and dreams.

I do like both Sheryl and Basara as well and I am holding out for a Basara cameo for Frontier.

I can tell you where you haters can shove your opinion about us up into but that would get me an infraction and a ban. Respect others preferences and don't put them down just because their likes are different from yours.

I ADORE Sheryl and just...like Basara 8DDDDDD

...For completely different reasons from most people 8DDDDDDDDDDDDD
Seriously, I can't believe the Macross crew made that anime X'D;; whatever gave them the idea that SUPIIIRIIICHIIAAAA shrieking orgasming aliens was a good idea;;;

Also I found the M7 songs so much more awesome for the intergalactic battlescenes. I was pretty happy when they had some in the BG in MF XDDDDD if only the battles weren't so half baked;
