This episode solidified my liking of this show. I liked it maybe even better than the first two, because it had more character interaction, or at least I felt more about their feelings and relationships.

Ranka is a vibrant character, and I loved Nakajima Megumi's singing. Her acting voice works for me, too, although there are moments of newbie flatness that trip up even me. Those are outnumbered by the moments of emotional contact, however.

I think Endou Aya is doing a fantastic job with Sheryl. Nakamura Yuuichi is also a very good lead, in my opinion. I thought the scene between Sugita Tomokazu (Leon) and Kobayashi Sanae (Kathy) was effective, too.

I could cavil about some of the animation in the OP, or about more coincidences (okay, I know, it's Destiny), but all in all a very good episode.

One thing: I was surprised to see the old-fashioned buildings, copied from Earth cities. It looked like New York with at least one San Francisco building. Did they build that way to make people feel at home?

Yeah she is, the people who don't like her seem to dislike her so she's playing her role well up to this point.

Ah, Macross. I can always rely on you to provide such great memories [or mammaries ]. Now with added wardrobe malfunction [Sheryl should fire her designer].

Ozma has grand death flag written all over him At least he's tough enough to survive them for now Now, who has money on the guy kissing the hot lt., telling her he'll retire to a farm and then fly off into the sunset?

Hmm, looks like we'll be seeing those Queadluun-Raus next episode. Wonder if they're real enemies, or just acting as an Aggressor unit in SMS's training program?

Could be a lot of things, maybe just some pesky rogues or part of the training program, *or* they might be part of the festivities of the Miss Macross Contest? I would really doubt at this point any Zentradi would be the main enemy anymore. Pretty sure that will be the Vajra still. One of the suits is a distinctly red suit, so maybe it is some sort of re-enactment of Max/Millia?

If I was putting money on it I would go with training.

Speaking of which, the place Ranka and Alto met is probably a replica of Griffith Observatory.



It's a nice touch I think.

As for the episode, the last quarter gave me Macross Plus vibes.

Red is going to be introduced next episode? Awesome.

Wonder how far Blue and Red will go this time?

Two thoughts:

-I find it weird that the shelter doesn't appear to have oxygen tanks of it's own.

-At the end at the funeral it appears that they quite possibly liquefy the dead and recycle it some how. Given that it's a closed biosphere it's no too surprising.

I wonder what is your logic. If someone surprise upon noticing a girl is so capable getting herself involved Vajra's attacks (thrice already) is a bad guy, I wonder if any good guy out there.

Btw, I just remember Ozma is surprised seeing Ranka is ep2, he must not be a good guy either. Anyone ready for CathyXOzma can give up now, bad guy can't get Cathy.

Since the colony ship are meant for long journeys, i m sure it's built more for comfort than mere transportation. Plenty of wide open space in it with all the normal facilities/amenities (even a graveyard). Wouldnt be surprised if people were born and died in them.

Technically, al the original buildings were destroyed in the first war, and the colony fleet can xplore the space for a span of 50 years
