Sheryl blushed around Grace too when she mentioned Alto. Does that mean she's hot for Grace's cyborg panties?
It's just a consequence of people trying to analyse the episode before knowing what was said in the dialogue. Plenty of mistakes were made this time around.

Well, when you guys are thinking about MikhailXSheryl (what hack is this? btw), I only see the best chance for my own scenario coming true: Mikhail KIA, Sheryl gets BLUE VF, and KLAN KLAN. Ranka can serve her hime-sama if she wants so badly, but this is this, that is that. The slave is still a slave, still Sheryl's private property and a precious livestock.

Ranka may not be as strong as Sheryl, but she's come very far from her indecisive period of the early episodes.
Meh, I still don't like moe and loli. Though depending on the loli's personality I could forgive the loli. It's the damsel thing that I REALLY hate though. That's just not acceptable to me.

And yeah, the whole lolicon thing is the main reason why AltoxRanka gives me the creeps. Sure they are really around the same age, but they sure don't look it. She looks 10 years old next to him.....blergh.....

Absolutely agreed. It was especially visible at the river scene.

LOL, it also doesn't help that Ranka is as flat as a board....there's like nothing for Alto to grab onto hahahaha!

Woops, the lecher in me is coming out.

He did grab her though and also grabbed his big gun.

(This lecher thing is a chain reaction )

Actually, this really works in favor of Ranka if you think of Alto's personality.

I am of the same opinion and that's why I was biased against Ranka when the show first started. She did grow on me a bit since then when her personality was exposed a bit. But lately all she has been doing is crying Alto to rescue her from situations that she should be able to handle on her own. The damsel in distress thing is what really makes me dislike how she has turned out in the last few episodes. Plus her fang and green dog ears really annoy me. Down with moe and loli!

Yes, I really loved the contrast between how good Sheryl looks in that plain flight suit and how loli Ranka was in hers. Behold Ranka standing back to back with Sheryl

I'm sure you guys can guess who the "I" is.

Oh you don't know how close I am to illustrating a "Ranka death my Sheryl's hands" scene....yes I'm evil that way.
I've actually killed anime characters in the same fashion *insert evil laugh*

And yes...death to moe.

Ranka is like a little sister. Great for rescuing and companionship... but shouldn't even be consider a serious romantic interest due to the 10 year old loli design.

Well there's a lot of groundwork for a relationship already layed from episode 1 to now, take away the triangle and it would be a question of when not if they got together. Now all we need is a few quality talks, some quality scenes (Ex gear race around Frontier's city would be cool ) and a lucky break or two along with Ranka using Alto as a crutch more and more.

I also expect this scene to come into play, either the song and/or Klan's seeing Alto and Sheryl together.



Now let's say Sheryl turns this into a love song and Alto recognizes that the song is speaking of the events of Star Date, even dense Alto might put 1 & 1 together.

Say Alto gets shot down and ends up hospitalized for an episode like Hikaru and Isamu did I can see Sheryl visiting him thanks to Klan. If this does happen I bet Ranka will be doing a concert or something work related that she can't get off (she might not even know if people can't get into contact with her) and won't be able to see him until later that night.

Though every time I try and predict Sheryl's actions she outdoes what I expect her to do so while I have a few ideas she'll probably do something way better.

I have no ill-wills to lolis. My avatar and name itself expresses my deep love and tribute for loli characters.

But to see Alto together with a loli character just feels so wrong wrong wrong wrong to me. Its like a pedophile which turns me off completely as well as ruin the image and impression.

Unless Alto is a loli himself, I am having great difficulty accepting a picture of Alto and Ranka in a lovey lovey image.

Something tells me that Sheryl will:

1. End up very lonely
2. End up losing the status of Galactic Fairy
3. End up losing her career to Ranka
4. Poisoned to the point where she is no longer able to sing
5. Suffering from depression and contemplating suicide

To resolve these issues however, there is an obvious cure. . .
