Except C.C.'s a fithly xeno that damns all she/it comes in contact with. Fairy 9 at least hasn't caused anyone to die yet.

Klan's in second. I guess it pays to not be involved in conspiracies, being proud of who you are and the work you do, while not being egomanical about it.

Where on earth did you get "C.C. is a xeno?" O_O Nina, I can understand, but C.C.? Not that I can disagree with you on the bad luck that falls anyone who contracts with her bit...that is kind of true. Err, but maybe we should take this to the C.C. thread in the CG forum.

And why is Sheryl, Fairy 9 all of a sudden. Her name is Sheryl. Fairy 9 is just a code name. But I notice you seem to use that now instead of her name. It's hard to hate Klan. That's why she gets so many votes. Like you said, there is less controversy around her character.

C.C. is not xeno, nor she is filthy

You know, I sincerely thank god that there's no other Ranka's fan as nice as you.

Klan doesn't do anything that make people hate her. She's both strong and cute (as loli), so that's double points for her.

It's a bit of a running joke. Long story.

Basically, we now refer to the characters by their callsigns:
Alto: Skull 4
Sheryl: Fairy 9
Ranka: Q1

When Sheryl gets her own VF, they'll convert part of Skull squadron to establish the new Fairy squadron. So SMS will consist of three divisions: Skull, Fairy, and Pixie. Fairy 9 will be Sheryl's new callsign. That way Fairy 9 can arrange dinner plans with Skull 4 while shooting earring speakerpods into enemy ships.

Feel free to join in the fun.

I'm still hoping a 'Pink Pecker' squadron makes another appearance...

Well compairing the male main cast i think the older Macross serie has way better characters, Alto is noway near Hikaru, Basara or even Isamu, just my 2 cents. Better hope there will soon some backstory about Alto past, so that he will develope more "character".

Hikaru didn't need a past to enjoy his character and developement. All he needed were circumstances in which he could grow and a supporting cast he could interact with. All they've given Alto to work with is some idiotic romantic notion about flying, while turning him into a piece of rope for tug-o-war. He's just a piece of man meat to throw into the fray.

If Klan actually got some development and screen time she would be untouchable when it comes to second place.

If she did get some, it'd probably be in regards to Michael, and I can't see that actually being a good thing for her. Scenes that showed her hanging out with her squadmates or more scenes like at the mall would be nice, but keep her as far from Michael as possible.

Well, we do know something about his past. Besides, being a Kabuki actor? Thats a first... in just about anything, really.

Well, we didnīt know that much more about Hikaru, really. His family had a flying circus and, uh, Roy Focker was part of it. And he hates war.

Thatīs basically how he starts out and we never get a look back. Misa had much more backstory, Minmey had her family shown in one episode, but thatīs it.

So, as far as that goes, Alto and Hikaru are quite comparable for background.

I liked Hikaru's background. He's a stunt pilot from a family of stunt pilots. What more do you need to know? Same with Minmei. Normal background, not particularly fantastic, except her family owned some restaurant chain, though she's not rich. Misa's thing with her childhood crush was really dumb, and show's how having a past can be a bad thing for a character's developement.

Isamu was a much more interesting main character than Hikaru and Alto combined. Basara was interesting too, it's a shame the series he was in just sucked.

Iīd say the series would have sucked 100% less *without* Basara.

Hey, I liked Basara...he was amusing. Even if he was a bit ridiculous sometimes with his "I won't fight, I'll sing to them" ideals. Plus the songs were catchy.

ORE NO UTA O KIKE!

Sheryl nicked it from him.

Actually, that was his saving point... otherwise the guy was a 100% self-centered dick.
