“Friendly Fire”

Macross Frontier

That looks rather fun.

Quite a mediocre episode actually, but it had some highlights, notably on Klein. Sheryl doesn’t really get much airtime this week :(.

Ranka also has her first single done already, and we can hear snippets of it playing in the background. That green little thing that follows her around is most definitely a Vajra, since it’s discovered that the Vajra’s breed via eggs now.

Otherwise, this is mostly a Michel episode, and I’m not much of a fan of him. Suffice to say the plot involves a tragic incident in his past with his sister and some Klein slap too. Her hands sure must’ve hurt. But it’s really funny seeing a Valkyrie get slapped.

Macross Frontier

I hope that hurts him too.

Next episode’s the interesting one, since it’s going to deal with the events of Macross Zero. I wonder how the OVA actually ties in to everything.

    Well Kuro, the surnames of the sisters on the Mayan island were Nome, so you could take that as a connection I suppose…

    You should really watch Macross Zero if you haven’t Kurogane. ^.^

    Well, if you’re not a fan of Michel, then I can understand why you wouldn’t particularly like this episode, but I for one thought it was a MAJOR improvement over 8. For one thing, everyone is back on model, and we actually got some great action this time around. 8 was funny but perhaps the most inconsequential episode I’ve ever seen. We got some insight on Brera here, too. He’s apparently fighting against both the Vajra and Frontier forces.

    I noticed that the next one has something to with Zero, so I’m actually finally getting around to watching that in preparation.

    @Liz: I’ve already watched it. I even have a post halfway done for it. I just can’t seem to finish it, though.

    @Amuro: Yeah, well, true the art was back on track and true it had some nice action, but otherwise, the major parts of the episode doesn’t really tie in much to the main plot.

    Anyways, it really depends on which characters that you like.

    If the VF-25 Battroid cockpit is where I think it it then that slap should have given Mikhail a good rattle.

    I am surprised though that there was nary a mention of Sheryl doing splits, or is that only some thing Hiromi can do? ;)

    […] the island where Macross Zero takes place. Atleast it seems like that, and with a comment over at Kurogane pointing out that the sisters last name in Macross Zero is Nome, the same as Sheryl´s last name it […]

    One of the characters in VF-X video game was named Focker as well and has no relation to our dear Roy Focker either. Treat it as a fan-jab if anything and don’t be disappointed if they aren’t related.

    Actually, I didn’t put in Sheryl doing splits because they were pretty inconsequential to the episode and I didn’t want to go over the 2-image limit for a post without cutoffs. Besides, it wasn’t all that erotic or interesting. The advertisement was pretty cheesy too.
