That is true. Kids aren't treated as some baggage that would hinder character development. among other things. Milia and Max is a good example.

People get married, have kids, which is a perfectly normal thing to do. Not to mention most of the first and secondary characters themselves do not come from screwed-up families. We actually have 'NORMAL' primary and secondary characters in Macross. Wow, imagine that...

It's possible that Kathy knows more about what Leon's up to, and she might not mind. Relationship-wise, it's not all that uncommon for one partner to overlook the shortcomings of the other. Then again, Leon's agenda might not be all that sinister to begin with. We have a lot more to learn about it.

Understatement of the YEAR.

I agree, because what Kathy did was to overlook a MAJOR, and I mean MAJOR shortcoming of an equally MAJOR asshole.

Yeah, sure, consensual adults f*ck, but from an audience's perspective, the thing between Leon and Kat WAS FRIGGIN SICK!

Well what can we say some of those prim and proper girls go wild once the genie is out of the bottle.

--- enough lest i hurl :P ---

I just wanted to give Ozma and Bobby mad piloting props from their ep7 battle. Even if Alto thinks he's awesome Ozma still shows him up like the noob he really is .

Bobby... I'd almost wish he put on a differnt head band when he's piloting cause he's so different. But yes piloting a macross battle ship by hand is so manly that it could make any one GAR.

Being stuck on Macross Quarter will probably help Cathy to mellow out, and to see Leon for what he is.

I'm pretty sure she already knows Leon's a creep. She did give a dirty look during the pageant.

Yeah, but there's a difference him being "My creep" and just being a creep.

Just wondering, has the official ages of the characters been released yet? I'm particularly interested about the side characters, like Klan Klan and the Captain of the Quarter battleship.

Officially, Alto and co. are around 17 years of age. Ranka herself is 16. Sheryl is 17. I thought Captain Jeff was around 47 years old (I may be off a bit, and while he looks older than Max, he is definitely younger, age-wise, than Max). Although age in anime is... well, pretty pointless.

Well, Klan Klan's age is significant IMO, as Mikhail seems to have a penchant for older women. Maybe she really is what influenced him to be that way?

While the Captain, I was just wondering if he was around in the first space war, and exactly how much battle experience does he have.

Klan is indicated as being older than Michel, but not in exact amount.

I really doubt Jeffery was in Space War 1. There were vets from SP1 in M7 and they were in a retirement home (Max and Milia don't count :P )

Well, sex in the workplace shows poor work ethics, unless you're a sex worker, but he looks like he compensates in other ways. (Long hours!)

How dare you compare Kathy to a despicable sex-worker!

KILL THE MUTANT, BURN THE HERETIC, PURGE THE UNCLEAN! ARGHHHHHHH!!!

*Ahem*... what was that? Oh, you mean Macross is fiction? Really? Ugh, shit...

I'd hate to be the maintenance guy of that office...

*shivers* I'm still traumatized by Nina Eistein in Code Geass season one.

Kathy does deserve better than that reject from Nadesico (matter of speaking)...

I personally believe Ozma and Cathy are able to reconcile with a prediction:

So you think a near death experience will help Luca on the Nanase Front? Being a Yesman won't get him very far. What he should do is go up to her, grab her from behind, and say "I almost died the other day! Will you go out with me!?"

I doubt he would be that straight forward by stating bluntly he almost died the other day. He seems to be the kind who sees things optimistically and also someone who doesn't wish to place worry on others (The typical good guy cliche).

But he's most likely to finally understand the value of a fragile life, especially so at his present age, resulting in becoming more aggressive in pursuing goals in life as long as the war continues. So if Nanase is part of his goals, I do expect him to to grow brass dongles and another pair of it to muster courage to ask her out for date or expressing confession when the situation calls for it.

I have to admit now, it is Luca voice that drives me up the wall. if he didn't speak with that overly sugar-dripping voice then i could probably tolerate him.

I guess also i wasn't expecting this sort of character to show up in Macross.

I guess times change.

and apparently so does the legal jurisdiction and age to join a para-military security outfit as well.


oh well, i serious hope they don't focus too much on Luca, after all, in Macross there was really only one love triangle that we had the attention span for.

I'll be a bit surprise if they try to play another relation in the background with Luca & Nanase.

it'll make them trying a little bit too hard in trying to modernize this series.
