At least the woman tried her best in the situation, rather than sitting around. If Sheryl's on her way to become a Valkyrie Pilot, then with enough training, she'll do good like Alto did in these few episodes. :P

I think you mean if Grace will be shocked to see Sheryl alive.

i'll make sure i ask what part of the show is that located at next week so i can skip it, i deemed that to be unacceptable and reckless behavior on the staff's part.
I think it's just Ranka not realizing she paraded around in her underwear.

This was Sheryl first time piloting the VF-25. She'll get better with time and more training. Sheryl did manage to bring an unconscious Michael part of the way to safety. Who's piloting really sucked was Luca. IMO he was better off staying on the ship. He almost died again if Alto hadn't saved his a** again he would have.

That 1% possibility tells you you're wrong. I'm pretty sure those 'capsulated organisms' are virus. Those are what making Ranka's belly glow. The Vajra virus, maybe? The possibility that Ranka was a test subject is going over the top now. I wouldn't be surprised if everyone on board the 117th research fleet injected that virus onto themselves and are the same as Ranka. It's just that, Brera "seems" to be different from Ranka which is supposed to be from that ship too. =/ The Vajra was portrayed in a different light. What a twist.

Seriously...

Spoiler:


Though I have to admit, the story is getting really really good because of this.

Spoiler for highlights of 14 for me:

Brera seems to be mostly cyborg now though, so that may account for the difference. Either that or he wasn't a test subject for some reason.

It's weird, but considering they are both adults and the woman involved doesn't look anything like a loli, I don't have any issues with it.

Just to clear this up, Grace said Little Queen, not beetle queen.

Err... or will he?

Am I the only one thinking that Ranka's singing to the Zentradi and Vajra and them being blown up regardless is analogous Basara's frustration in M7?

Damn Red head bit it. I am a bit partial to tomboy characters.



With the next Sheryl "Concert" does seem reminicent of Sharon Apple.

Grace being an AI compounds it.

It wouldn't surprise me if the people of Galaxy is hypnotized and under control by Grace.

Sheryl will be the wrench in Grace's plan much like Myung was to Sharon Apple.

They'll make the perfect robbing-the-cradle couple You're right about Brera being a cyborg though. I thought we'll really know a lot in this episode, but that 'lot' isn't even enough.

Why didn't Grace come back in a different body? She could had let Sheryl and the rest of them think she was dead. She could have downloaded herself to a different body. For example new body could have been a high school girl who became Sheryl's friend. How is she going to explain how she survived when everyone on the part of Gallia 4 that was destroyed should be dead.

The creepy idea occurs to me that Brera isn't a cyborg because he was injured during the 117th destruction, but had the infected tissue cut out of him for experimentation after being secured by Grace's faction.

When Maaya Sakamoto sang Aimo, I thought the song just leveled up. I love Ranka's Aimo and all, but Maaya's version just had that "the real deal" feeling written all over it. ^_^ Maaya's the best.
I completely agree with you, it literally threw me off my chair when I heard it! Ranka's version is great, but I pray with all my soul that Maaya will release her own Aimo version!

Didn't he kinda do something similar to Ranka already? not telling Ranka he was off to Gallia 4 and sending Mihael in his stead.

Boy no love for Sheryl in this last episodes! I wouldn't worry too much because personally since the beginning it looked like she's going to be the one ending up with Alto.

So I finally seen it.

I have to admit, I am at a slight loss here. Not that its a bad thing because it isn't. It was a good episode, I just don't know what to make out of it. Mysteries abound.

Its sad to see Raramia biting it, but perhaps we saw that coming. After all, she had no voice actress! On the other hand, its nice to see NUNS pilots having a pair. About time.

"It won't be the same again!" Cried a pilot.

Yeah, no shit mate. You guys were absolutely pitiful for the last 13 facking episodes!

So they mentioned Ranka as the 'queen'. I wonder. I don't think the Vajra are an experiment at all, I think Ranka is an experiment. She represents an attempt for mankind to control Vajra but somehow failing utterly because controlling protoculture is beyond human capacity.

But no, we'd do anything, anything stupid to compensate for our curiosity won't we ladies n' gents. Even if there is a big label with a huge jolly roger all over it.

If that is not life-saving-sacrifice-supreme, I don't know what that is.

No, the dumbass at least have enough courtesy to send Michel out. Let's not talk about Hikaru.

Notable points for me:

-Sheryl in VF! Lasts only for 20 secs though Q.Q

-VF-17 Macross Plus POOOOOOONCH!

-Mayaa's singing of Aimo is way beyond my expectations. o.O I can at least do my best to forget the song "Triangler" ever existed now.

-Alto already getting armored pack? Yikes



WTF moments

-Vajra Mothership: One macross cannon could obliterate it? It kind of kills the "OMGWTFHIVESHIP!" moment.

-Pixie wingman just shot off like that feels like a pointless death though. Along the lines of "Kill them all!" Gundam feeling. Which one was the one killed off, the pink or the red haired Pixie?

I've felt the same way, but it's still depressing to see her get hurt over and over. I know it's a standard part of character development for them to fall before growing, but I like Sheryl a lot and always hope for the best for her.

By the way, that lady singing Aimo looked a lot like Sheryl, or is it just me? could Sheryl be also involved in some way? Although Seems unlikely as far as we can tell, the one with most exposure to the Vajra has been Ranka.

Also, more valkyrie fighting, yay! I love the romantic side of Macross (is the main point of everything after all) but the battle scenes from Macross Frontier are great and I always wish there was just a bit more every time ^^

I got the 「ざくとは違うんだよ、ざくとは!」impression in that scene.

After the last episode, I am pretty sure that Ranka was part of an experiment of some sort. I figure the Vajura were relatively benign until someone went and riled them up.

Hm, I'm pretty sure Ranka will survive in the end of the episode, once you off Grace and Leon. She appears to me as the peacemaker between Vajra and humans. She'll probably pull a Minmei by the end of the series as the Minmei Attack resolved peace between the two sides.

Raramia is the redhead.

I'd be slightly upset if it was Nene, because she is sweet as sugar...from what little she has done and said.
