Something I've noticed for a while now. The bridge bunny with the purple hair. What's up with her eyes? She looks like some sort of bug.

The mysterious VF that shows in up in episode 7 also looks almost exactly like the VFs that the Anti-UN forces used in Macross Zero!

The purple one does indeed have a superficial resemblance to the SV-51 piloted by Nora. Beyond that, its battroid form was completely different. We will have to wait and see just how 'similar' the two units are.

On the other hand, I am willing to bet Mr. Mysterious here is

She just has beady eyes. That one scientist guy (Emil Lang in Robotech) on the SDF Macross had them too. Although I think they made up some weird explanation for that in Robotech.

Macross Galaxy; proud sponsor of the Anti-UN forces?

Or maybe it's just homage.

I wouldn't say just superficial. The way its wings stay out but bent in battroid form, the way the wings are bent in that split second you see it in gerwalk mode before in flies away at the end, the forward swept winglets next to the cockpit, even the general shape of the wings themselves. Anyone got some screen shot comparisons out there?

Hmmm... Maybe another race that joined the UN like the Zolan. (Macross 7 Dynamite)

Or another Zentradi decent.

edit:

Could Sheryl's earings be made of the same material as those rocks at Mayan island?

Assuming she is born or adopted by the Nome clan.

A little piece of home so to speak as they remember what's left of their culture.

Yeah i've noticed them too, i assumed they were either:

1) Cybernetic implants
2) She's another "genetically-compatible" species of humanoid. i.e. Zolan, Meltrandi

While Frontier bans implants, im sure if it's for medical purposes, then it'll be allowed.

Just like certain A-class drugs can be prescribed by doctors.

Then again i do like the Alien idea, not impossible either.

She looks like the adventurous type, willing to leave her home planet and seek an exciting life in amongst the stars.

With several references to Macross Zero appearing here and there, I refuse to believe Sheryl is not connected to Zero's Nomes, personnally.

Her eyes are not all black, seen in close up shots like the one where she goes "That's sexual harassment, isn't it?" in Episode 6), it's just that her eyes are permanently squinty while her pupil are drawn the same (oversized) size as everyone else.

i've seen the HD raws and yeah they are brown, the pupil are big, but it's the shape of her eyes, they are so slim, moon like.

at one point the pupil filled the entire eye, thus in the SD version it looked like it was all black.

Yeah, doesn't look cybernetics, but doesn't mean they don't do it at frontier.

I think it's just a off source-animator quirk that went......funny.

I hope not. Some drama is needed and a named characters needs to die soon and Klein Klan is a good start. Then there is Ozma as a good candidate to die.

Call me persistent.

A little piece of home so to speak as they remember what's left of their culture.

Also Sheryl's mother may have a connection to Ranka's family.

I was under the impression that the rock's weren't special and the effect was due to the singing. For another anime analogy, it's like how rocks float when DBZ character power up.

Eh, she hasnīt been fleshed out yet enough to be an "important" death. Iīd think Luca would be better, if we have to begin killing off people so soon.
