Alto and her really get along too well, and if I were a twisted writer and want to create an unforgettable forbidden romance, I'd definitely do the latter scenario Atleast just make it seem that way.
Ranka is indeed 1/4 Zentradi, as stated by Kawamori himself. Ranka being part Vajra is a good theory, but if that is true, then it is an additional genetic makeup to Ranka.

Oh, gosh, no argument against that, EVER! Especially after this episode, I am absolutely convinced he will do Kabuki again.

This is Kira Yamato we are talking about here, he is supposed to be bad ass

Not surprisingly, they are voiced by the same Maya Sakamoto.

Oh, just falls into place. The way Hikaru treated Minmei was highly reminiscent of the way Alto treats Ranka. I suspect Alto and Sheryl would be having a serious heart - to - heart later on, but we shall see.

Ah, yeah I forgot about that. I didn't see it get wiped out so it must still be out there. But since he doesn't know where the Vajra went that means he will not be a part of the Ranka Rescue Team.

Yes yes. Only difference is, Minmay Ranka loves Alto-Hikaru back more, and this is Macross Frontier instead of DYRL.

I hope he doesn't die, but I have a feeling he might by the end of the series.

I wouldn't care much about Grace still being on the planet either....she was poisoning Sheryl the whole time afterall.

Absolute Blasphemy.

Kira= Brera (oniichan)
Cagalli=Ranka (imouto)

Lacus=Sheryl (pink heads)
Athrun= Alto (blue to blue)

Now this works.

Wut.

Why are we comparing the holy macross to a heretical Gundam Seed?

FCS?

To be accurate, the head compartment unit for the original Macross was destroyed + Macross 13 was also obliterated.

Who would have figured Alto of all people would get Kakizaki'd? (or so it appears).

Is Brera really confirmed to be a nii-san? I see lots of hints, but why wasn't he in the family photo? My osananajimi senses are tingling.

I wonder if Sheryl will be given the same set of choices by the military as Alto was, given that she's unofficially piloting a VF. I would love to see her get to pilot one of her own.

Good to see Diamond Crevasse back.

Brera is highly likely to be in the family photo as the person in the centre though his face is obscured by the fracture.

In addition, this pretty much seals the whole deal he's her brother or the boy in the picture:

There was a photo of Ranka's father. Does he not resemble... Jeffrey?

Good catch, on both accounts.

I thought there was only one person in the obscured part of the photo, but I guess the pants started too low to the ground.

Brera is in the family photo. And he appears in both Ranka's flashbacks with her family, including the one with her mother speaking. He even has the harmonica in the flashback.

edit: SymphonicRain beat me to it. Brera also has the harmonica in the first flashback too.

I think though in true Quamzin fashion Temjin will be back.

I second that, although I'm still a little traumatized too. Again thanks for the early translation of some scenes ickem.

Sheryl = Basara that would be so awesome I might cry... and vomit... simultaneously.

Someone posted a really good pic of the family portrait back on page 2.

Isn't that pretty much the direct translation of yak deculture?
