If you look at her POV, she had a fight with her brother, searched around for Alto's advice, pulled herself together believing Alto's on her side only to witness that her idol already got her hands on him. All she could do was back off, hence, why she never told him that she got discovered---despite the fact that it was because of him that she made it. If she could've straight up asked Alto why he was with Sheryl, then she could've felt better about everything. Afterall, they're just friends and Sheryl's her idol. It wouldn't be unnatural if she did ask. I wish she could've done that, but this just proves, Ranka lacks the initiative to express herself.
It's actually much simpler than that.

Sheryl is a celebrity. Even had Alto been interested in talking about his date with her, it would still be inconsiderate for him to do so; gossip spreads fairly fast, and it could have an undesired effect on Sheryl's career. In this case, the simplest solution is to just give Ranka a white lie, rather than telling her outright that he can't tell her (which would obviously raise some eyebrows from his present company). If anything, it reflects well on Alto's personality that he's willing to be discrete (I suspect that at least part of this comes from the fact that he comes from a famous family himself; so it makes sense that he knows how to hold his tongue.)

In hindsight, yes, everyone found out eventually, but neither Alto nor Sheryl could have predicted that Galaxy would come under attack. Both of them had thought that their date was going to be one of their last meetings, if not their last. So Alto's actions were appropriate given the information that he had available at the time (don't forget that he doesn't watch the next episode previews like we do).

To put it into perspective, also keep in mind Alto has known Ranka for a far shorter time than he has Nanase, Michael, and Luca. If he's not the type of person to share that sort of information with them, then it's unlikely that he's going to tell Ranka either. Likewise, when you look at how rarely Alto ever shares any information about himself, it shouldn't be surprising that he's tight-lipped about this as well.

I wouldn't say that Ranka lacks the initiative to express herself. After all, she was fairly unambiguous in expressing what she thought of her brother's opinion of her singing career in episode five (Ozma had clearly got the message by the start of the next episode ). Once she loses the comfort that comes with familiarity, though, then she starts to retreat into her shell. So her real challenge is to just be herself regardless of who's watching her.

Michael = ratings poison?

*1.0% (*3.0%) 05/31 (Sat) *1:55am-*2:25am TBS Macross FRONTIER

Though most shows last week lost rating from the week before.

The voice commanding Brera to destroy the Vajra nest in this episode sounded more like Kikuko Inoue (Grace in MF). It sounded specifcally like the voice she used for her character, Miria in the anime Claymore.
Kikuko Inoue also played "The Boss" in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater... I assure you she didn't use her Belldandy voice for her She has a tough/rough voice to go along with her normal stock voice.

Yes, I've heard her as The Boss.. and she sounds sexy. She's not Tanaka Rie in terms of 'villianness' voices, but it's a lower voice than her usual Belldandy one.

Each series has its best animation episode and its worst, doesn't it? Or did I mean this episode was bad absolutely? If so, I'm sorry for Kim Yong Sik. I didn't mean to. Forgive my bad English.

My eyes sure watched the lackluster ragged wooden actings in the episode. Action, movements, motion or whatever. I don't know whether it's because the episode director's laziness not to have issued necessary instructions, the animation director's cutting corners or his/her ability not able to meet the ep director's demand, but it can be hardly said that this animation was top notch except for some close-up shots. I also have something to say about figure, but don't have enough vocabulary to say such delicate things.

I don't care about foreign names as long as they are good animators. In fact I like Choi Eunyoung at Madhouse or Kim something working on Keroro or Gintama at Sunrise.
