Anyway, Sheryl will win
Their way to fight was amazing, Sheryl who is playing the provocative women, and Ranka who is jumping in the show...those two are pure win

The duet was freaking awesome. No secret dateo's, bitter cookies, or snuck in kisses.

Just flat out, here we are, here's how we feel, CHOOSE!

Man no wonder Alto felt trapped .

Yeah... If Sheryl's cough hadn't interrupted things and he really had to choose, his brain would have broken under the strain of having to discard one of them.

Either that or the Macross Universe as we know it would have imploded.

Anybody notice all the little stars and everything that sparkle around Ranka when she turns the Moe-machine on? It's kind of freaky.

Well, Id say it simple artistic license... but if she really produces sparkles on her own, then, yeah, freaky.

Yeah, it's incredible what a well prepared girl can do with some phosphorus-based powder...

The set up of episodes 1-15 is actually this:

-Have Ranka climb stardom high enough to appear on the Galaxy villain's radar. That wouldn't happen completely if she didn't fall in love with Alto and follow him to Galia 4. Her connection to the Vajra was also revealed from there.
-Alto (this is what the writer's wishes) have him thrown into the mix in the middle of this conspiracy. This wouldn't happen if Sheryl didn't become interested in him enough to invite him to Galia 4 and most importantly, it wouldn't happen if he didn't rescue Ranka. Everything all happened from there up to the part where Bilra wanted to see him himself.
-Sheryl -survive Galia 4 by looking for Alto, then get discarded by Grace to find a new victim of their evil plans---Ranka. Up to this point, Sheryl is more like a plot device that had a hand in setting up Ranka and Alto to get to where they are in the plot. I know I'm going to get hated again for that sentence, but getting discarded by Grace opens up a lot of possibilities for her including the character growth that she really needs. =/

I still think Galaxy were just lucky that things turned out this way. I doubt they have it in their calculation that Q1 will be a big fan of their fairy 9 and was able to meet up with her. Alto having encounters with Q1 and Fairy 9 is also by chance, but that certainly helped Galaxy in a BIG way. Now, maybe from here on, the focus will be equal on RankaxAltoxSheryl end. We'll see.

I'm pretty sure we'll get a new OP and ED next episode. It's about time...

I think for the Sheryl fans, next episode title should be Sheryl Attack. I have a feeling Sheryl will spend most of the next episode with Alto.

Maybe that's the REAL reason they took her in for testing, hmm?

I was actually really happy to see Sheryl go for Alto like she did, especially since I knew Ranka wouldn't in a million years try such a physically seductive tactic. You'd THINK that under normal circumstances that would be a bit of a deal-sealer for pretty much any guy (extremely beautiful, wonderful singer, money, fame, great personality, very strong emotionally, etc...)... But somehow Alto is still torn between the two. I don't know, I guess I just can't see this situation in his eyes.

It's an immense wonder to see another guy in Ranka's life, and from the looks of one of the scenes they might have some quality night-time together. With any luck us Sheryl fans will see things going that way. I think the biggest reason for this pairing is probably the fact that Sheryl would be (more than likely) without any options if she lost poor Alto.

Sheryl's certainly more sexy, but she's also "threatening" in ways Ranka isn't. Ranka's more sincere. When she's happy, or she's feeling wonder, it shows immediately, right down to her hair. Sheryl's harder to figure out, at least for Alto.

Hmmm...I suppose Alto's past hangups are preventing him from pursuing any kind of relationship. Being the way he is, he tends to cling to his emotional baggage. On the other hand, he reminds me of the typical "fickle" lead male character in many any titles. Alto reminds me of an "emo" version of Kyousuke from KOR who was equally indecisive....just my opinion as I could be way off.

That I can agree with.

Sheryl = Able to wear a "mask" at her convenience.
Ranka = Open book

Yeah, that part is obvious to a lot of people though. I mean, just look at her. Sheryl is obviously very happy to see Alto, but wants to make sure she puts on a facade before she actually sees him. She obviously likes the guy, but apparently want some respect while at it

That seems to be a fitting analogy. I have a puppy that is always starving for my attention...Ranka most of the time seeks Alto's attention.

Only now, Sheryl wants the attention as well but perhaps her pride is preventing her from doing so? I would like to compare her to a Neko but then again cat's are not exactly "go getters", right?
Never owned a cat so I'm just reaching LOL.

..Like at the hospital when Alto came to visit. I loved how she was checking to see if her appearance looked decent before he entered. I thought that was rather cute.

Well, the way I see it, is that Sheryl really demands an equal-playing field, while Ranka simply does not. She'd just ask for it.

Well, Ranka trying to jump Alto at the beginning elevates that into a whole realm of possibility, doesnt it?

Equal playing field? I don't remember her ever being interested in that.

And in that ep, they were both vying for attention. What's equality got to do with it?
