Sheryl is experiencing what my friend calls Misa Hayase syndrome

if the trend continues she'll probably sing one of Ranka's songs the next episode

Hm... that sounds nice. I hope it's Aimo. I'm really damn tired of that song but hearing a different vocal for it might spice things up.

Ranka : "Why are our moms fighting?"

I imagine Brera saying : " who is my mom you traitor " ^^

It's good to see you are enjoying yourself Seifall. Just try not to rub it in too much out of consideration. Be a good sport. The twist and turn thus far in the series hasn't followed a consistent line, so the remaining two episode can lean toward any conclusion. All we can do is to hold our breath and enjoy the ride. Good night!
You're right, I enjoyed myself too much it seems that the smiley were too expressive of my humor ^^
All we can do is to hold our breath and enjoy the ride. Good night! !! Yes goodnight it was fun!! I hope it will be like that for the last ones
Be a good sport. like I am with ... my consciousness
I'm just joking here,people should know it by now, and really it's an anime we are here to laugh not to age out of frustration !!
So let's enjoy the show .

Well, when all is said and done, it's entertainment after all...


Quote:
When Klan asked, "Alto, sore ga omae` no ai ka?"... she isn't exactly asking Alto who is he going to pick for his romantic interest, rather, .. she is making a very sad observation. Let me elaborate. Does Alto like Sheryl? Yes. Does Alto like Ranka? Yes. Alto also likes the people who chooses to live in this fragile world. Alto is declaring that he wouldn't mind killing one of his loved one if it means avoiding mass destruction for those people. From that line of thought, it seems, Alto's definition of "love" is too vast, so it renders him unable to be tied down by the affection of one or two people. I think that's what Klan realizes just now, and Sheryl has been into such realization for some time already. They can love him all they want, but he is incapable of returning it to either of them to their liking because of his scope of perception.
Alto's revelation seems kinda incomplete to me. However, I think part of what he was running away from was he said he didn't like Frontier, but actually he really does care about the place.

btw, my interpretation of Sheryl's line was not "I understood" but "I knew" - knew that Alto likes/loved Ranka more than her (maybe that's why she teased him so bad). And though she knew, she hopes for Alto to still be kind to her, for just a bit longer. I kinda get the feeling from the preview that she's nearly at death's door - she's not exactly trying to live as long as possible.

I will also be tremendously surprised if Kawamori chooses to kill either of these popular heroine, Sheryl and Ranka. Fans of these characters may not have anything to worry about for them to kick the bucket, however, the fans who have shipping in mind may end up becoming disappointed.
Well, I think Alto was rather "genre smart" this episode. I mean, right at the start he refuses to talk about girls with his team-mates due to the "Valkyrie jink"... and by declaring he's willing to kill Ranka, he's pretty much just guaranteed her survival

And next ep is rather "final battle"-ish, but given that there's a good few eps left, that allows for some final twists...

I also noticed that Sheryl missed half of the conversation right? Alto was talking to Klan and when she opened the door, the convo got to the part where everyone is saying he claimed he loves Ranka. :S

Is it another week of childish Sheryl fanboys voting the episode as a 1 because everyone's favourite songstress doesn't play a starring role, or is it genuinely bad?

I totally forgot that Macross aired tonight, so I'll be watching it first thing when I wake up.

I think Macross Frontier will end like no other Macross before it.

They'll actually manage to freaking colonize a planet at the end of their journey

one more thing to note:

Spoiler for paper plane:


It's rather lame to see it as a shipping argument for RankaxAlto. (you know who I'm talking about)

I don't think she meant "our mothers", tachi after a word is also used to generally indicate the other people there, so in this case "mama tachi" would be "mom and the other person there" (= Grace). It's pretty common to see it used like this, sorry if my explanation is crappy but dunno how to say it better in english It' also used a lot after first names, for example "Alto tachi" would be Alto and the others, and so on :O

Oh no, I get you, thanks for telling me. Oh well, it was a rather sweet but short-lived dream for this ship. *is actually supporting Brera x Ranka from the shadows*

Why did Ranka call Grace and Ranshe "our moms" if she and Brera are sibblings? quite confusing really--and why was it Ranka's fault the vajra attacked 11 years ago?
Well the tachi suffix means the person with others.

So mama-tachi means Ranshe with Grace. Not that Grace is Ranka or Brera's mother.

yeah, so was I. Brera deserves something for all the sacrifices he made for Ranka, other than "gome ne~ oniichan"

Spoiler for Brera:
