Kinda hard to do that when you've got a Meltran interested in you...

When I think of Alto the following thoughts come to mind:

loyal, brave, capable

The two areas where I feel he's incomplete is in his love area and coming to terms with his father. For being a kabuki actor, do you think that heightened his nervousness around girls? (because he sticks mainly around guys).

He seems to be incredibly naive almost to a fault around girls - like he's never had a gf before. I kind of picture Alto like Cloud without the guilt factor in Advent Children.

In terms of his character interactions with Ranka & Sheryl - I feel like Ranka is like Cagali in Gundam Seed in the way that she makes Alto blush. Now there's no way that she becomes Alto's brother, but I don't have a good feeling about an AltoxRanka ending. And I love Ranka, but when she does her moe look with stars appearing, I kind of shudder

With Sheryl I kind of see it as the traditional tsundere pair - Akane/Ranma, Asuka/Shinji, Naruto/Sakura (not yet, but in the end), with a lot less angst and a lot more fun.

AltoxRanka = easy but boring
AltoxSheryl = challenging, but more rewarding

You know what I'd really like? Have the setup of the triangle as a competition between an idol and a pilot. Yeah. Ok, I don't hate this current triangle, but I would have loved a setup between two drastically different professions even more.

Moreover, I would have a lot less problems with Ranka if she looked like this:

Spoiler for Bleh:


Unfortunately, the creators made both characters to be on the polar ends of physical appearance... *Sigh* ... and I cannot bring myself to appreciate Alto x Ranka no matter how hard I try.

Here's hoping for a for a qualified VF pilot Sheryl. A whole lot of people would blow their loads if the series ever goes in that direction.

It would definitely elevate it from "epic" to "all-time god-damned best series ever" status to me.

Until Macross Frontier: Fomoffu comes along, that is.

For ranka to look like that she'd have to be a daughter of Max and Milia... :P
But i wouldn't mind a Emilia starring Macross series though ^^

Oh I've been wanting that for ages. An Emilia-centric series. And I would love for her to reprise her "Heart and Soul" even if it's just once.

Yes, that would indeed change *some* of my opinion of her if she carried the same aura as Komiria.

I just noticed Komilia does look like a grown-up Ranka in some aspects.

Well, provided that Ranka started off not as a moe-lolita jailbait.

He'd probably be scratching his head but I wonder if it would at least give him ideas.

*or it's just my wishful thinking once again* bah...




Oh right...Alto thread...okay, Alto is pretty, Alto is pretty, Alto is pretty.

*this place needs an Emilia thread*

YES! It so desperately needs and deserves and Emilia thread. If I could draw, I would be doing fanart as we speak. But alas, the only drawings I'm capable of, are the ones used in hangman.

Ah yes Emilia.

You know if I wasn't busy one idea for a Macross fanfic is the Fleet of Strongest Women.

Staring Chlore, Advisor Tranquil, Rex as a Valkyrie pilot, Liza, Elma and Emilia.

Maybe Komalia, Moaramia and the rest of the Jenius sisters.

Heh, perhaps there should just be a "Jenius sisters" show. Even if it's one-shot it would be pretty awesome.

So, in an attempt to stay on topic, I just checked some of the Japanese BBS. Apparently, Alto is supposedly the cutest protagonist to ever exist in the Macross franchise.

After thinking about it, its quite difficult to dispute the claim

This is almost as bad (or good) as Mai-Otome....
