Total fail. Talk about killing my enthusiasm for a series. I feel completely empty now when before I was totally into this series. What a cop-out.

Kawamori is a bit cruel here...
So now the question is why did we bother to argue about an ending who was not supposed to happen ?!
Keep faith guys, the movie will resolve it(for sure)<< sure? I'm not sure of anything now! Think that 2 hours ago I was so confident, my.... Macross Frontier will stay in my mind for a longggg time

I feel as if it were the lamest conclusion ever... like JS said, a cop-out.

MF was based around the Triangle, nothing else about it really stood out... that said, no triangle resolve = lame.

Well, there will be a movie. And while I am not ultra-happy, I am satisfied. I liked most of the characters ( even Ranka, besides episodes 19-24 ), all important ones got to live, and at this point, Sheryl has won by default. So, unless the movie tells us otherwise, I am okay.

But it *could* have been totally epic, if they“d resolved the romance, that“s for sure.

But we should see the positive here :
sheryl is cured and Ranka redeemed herself......
OK, I know the romance took a huge place in the plot that's why it's a odd end.
Not bad or something but surprising and it kinds of left a bitter taste when at the end they played triangular...

I'd have even felt better about a Ranka ending. This no choice thing is complete BS. Is Alto really gay? Was his true love among living things really with Michel? WTF?

Kawamori I hope someone trolls you extremely bad and leaves you bitter like the rest of us.

The ending leaves me laughing so hard due to knowledge that how many fans will jumping up and down pissed with no resolution in Frontier.

Personally I am fine with each of the girls and hey if Alto goes for threesome, even better. Why stick to one, when you can have 3? (Sheryl, Ranka and the sky)

I said the same thing in the episode thread. At least then we'd have something to remember it by.

Won by default, how is that? From everything that happened, it left everyone gutted and this is the worst feeling after a series ends.

Speaking of Kawamori, has he never learned from the original Macross, Macross Plus and Escaflowne? No need to show a kiss or anything, but enough of a scene to show how romance ends with the series... it's all what I needed and he couldn't deliver. They could have shown one last scene with Sheryl running towards Alto gazing her and on his way to land his plane (slow motion ą la Macross Plus) while Ranka stays a little behind, I didn't ask more than that of a final scene as long as it states how the love triangle is solved.

He just wants to leave it unresolved so they can milk the Frontier setting for all it's worth. (A movie, and maybe an OVA or three).

I totally expect Sheryl to take the damsel in distress role for once in a sequel, and Alto and a proactive and more mature Ranka growing closer while trying to save her in a role reversal, in order to build her up as worthy of being called a rival in a non lopsided triangle.

Still, we are still in right of protesting when the director doesn't deliver in making a series. It's also what film critics (professional ones or normal viewers like us) always do.

True, but this is what he wants. What can we do beside making noise for a sequel which exactly what he wanted to make more money? He needs to show something to potential investors so he can make more Macross.

I just take it as it comes, after all it is entertainment.
