Awesome, awesome episode. Well, except for the WTF action scenes inserted in the middle for no reason.
Basically the Macross Zero tribute episode, both Sheryl and Ranka manage to get a piece of Alto-hime this episode, both of them each getting a kiss. “Kimiiii wa dare to kisuuuu wo suruuuu!” fits so the show so damn much now. I especially went whooping when Sheryl surprised Alto-hime with her kiss… awwwwww. But now, both of them are really seriously going for the love Triangle(r), ehehehe.
Ah, the other interesting thing to happen was the confirmation of moyism’s guess. Yappari, Alto-hime is really a hime. The following IRC convo says it all:
[04:09] @kur0gan3> but let’s just say this…
[04:09] @kur0gan3> Alto is a really, really beautiful.
[04:09] @kur0gan3> I’d fall for him now myself, if I didn’t know better.
[04:09] @RangerKarl> a really really beautiful what
[04:09] @RangerKarl> hur ok
[04:10] @kur0gan3> i think that’s why he’s soooo popular with the girls.
[04:10] @kur0gan3> that beauty, yet that tsun-tsun attitude
On the topic of the Macross Zero movie, Ranka as Mao was really kinda LOL. The side character playing Sara was just way off, seriously, but they sure got a real lookalike for Shin Kudo’s role, although he kinda chickened out for the underwater scene. The movie director was pretty damn GAR at the end of the episode, when he finally spoke to Ranka and inviting her on stage. Man, what’s with the awesome male side-characters in Frontier. Otherwise, this is gonna be a career-launching platform for good ‘ol Ranka, and heck, she’s gonna do a live concert next next week!
And that brings me to one thing… NO MACROSS FRONTIER NEXT WEEK. WHYYYYYYYYY?!!!!!!!! A two-week wait is terrible, dammit! I’m already suffering from withdrawals as it is, particularly peaking around Monday and Tuesday… but now I have to go through double of it?! I sure hope I survive long enough.
Yeah, and one final thing before I start with the screencap flood (38 this time, I’m slowly turning in to a moyism/lolitron)… the “action” scene this week was just WTF terrible. Damn Thai animators. I seriously wonder why did they put that part in, apart from introducing Brera to Alto. Makes no sense, really.
I kinda found Alto’s “Yo!” pose pretty damn funny.
Hey isn’t this Sheryl’s earring?!
Oh right, forgot to mention this. Somehow Sheryl’s earring was retrieved. I wonder if it’s gonna be a plot thread as well. Sheryl’ll be pretty happy to get it back, and Alto can heave a sigh of relieve, hehe.
Ahh, swimsuit Sheryl! *nosebleed*
This part was just… “wtf?!”
Yeap, KISU time!!
Let’s watch that again..
… and again.
Ahhh… slightly blushing Sheryl *nosebleed*
KISU again. Alto-hime is sure lucky.
Man, this part was pretty GAR.
And now… two-week wait for the next episode…. ＿|￣|○
