“Triangler”

Macross Frontier

Alto, oh Alto. Why are you such a player?

Macross Frontier

Oh dear, Ranka’s totally unrecognizable when she wears spectacles! Yeah, right.

I’ve always found it amazing how adding some eyewear renders even the most recognizable faces a cover of anonymity in anime.

Macross Frontier

Alto’s brother can be pretty creepy at times. Gotta lol at Alto crawling in through the back.

Macross Frontier

Oh dear god, lol. Cathy and Ozma rabu-rabu was so funny.

Macross Frontier

Haha, dammit. Everyone’s going on dates this episode. I still /r/ for Klan Klan OVA.

Macross Frontier

So Sheryl reminds Alto of his mother. I wonder if I should feel a bit disturbed by that.

Macross Frontier

Oh dear, Alto’s just so cute as a kid. Too bad he had to grow up.

Macross Frontier

Michel’s now the person with the most sense in the show. I can’t believe Alto can still manage to try and act innocent about his relationships with Sheryl and Ranka.

Macross Frontier

Sheryl! \o/

Macross Frontier

Now… if someone shopped a knife at Ranka’s hands there… somehow I am reminded of Nice Boat, whether I like it or not.

Well, this episode definitely wraps it up. Macross Frontier is all about the love triangle dorama now. Alto is kinda pissing me off a bit with his indifference to choosing either one girl, but I hope he’s finally made a decision after this episode.

I would’ve loved it if Kawamori actually used this episode for a bit more exposition about the V-type disease. The only new things we learned this episode is Leon trying to off President Glass via coup d’état and Grace developing missile versions of her Dimension Eater using fold quartz.

Next week; iKun grows up!

P.S. Full Lion single just got leaked out! I am so happy! Check the usual places to find it!

    If I were to make a bet, I would bet on details about the V-type infection appearing in the episode after the next one. I think everything is going to hell in the next episode which will end with no apparent hope, but in the episode after that the V-type infection will turn out to be a blessing in disguise and will let Sheryl save the fleet from the brink.

    Of course, this is pure speculation and I put less than 25% of this being correct. ^_^;;

    Next ep = all hell breaks lose with the vajran eggs finally hatching inside Macross Frontier.

    And then we have a follow up from Macross: Do you remember love? where I guess basically the same will happen.

    And with the title of Diamond Crevasse well I hope Sheryl grows a pair of balls and starts to fight the disease.

    Cute Alien reference in the beginning of the ep as well. Are you lonely? I want to see my mom. That can be arranged => insert loads and loads of vajran babies into Ranka…

    I WANT TO KNOW MORE!!

    So I wouldn’t say it’s all about the love triangle at this point since hell is going to break out in the next ep.

    Oh well. Now all I need is some subs.

    And the coup de tat is in the end of the ep. And with the preview, it probably succeeded. But that was my guess on why the damn idiot was with Grace, to get the mayor´s job.

    Still want to know why Grace is smirking so much..

    Hopefully this won’t be as trainvrecked as Code Geass R2 is.

    How will growing balls fight a disease? It’s like fighting AIDS with just willpower – the body will be overwhelmed by the virus and have the immune system fail, no latter your attitude. As far as we can tell, V-Type infections do not a Vajra control unit make, else Ranka would have been found out as a carrier of the disease in episode 2 due to blood tests for it. She appears to be something else, to be tied to the Vajra.

    >>I’ve always found it amazing how adding some eyewear renders even the most recognizable faces a cover of anonymity in anime.

    Well not just anime….there’s clark kent. LOL.

    >>P.S. Full Lion single just got leaked out! I am so happy! Check the usual places to find it!

    Osoi….it was leaked last week. XD

    We also got confirmation that Ai-kun is a baby vajra….not like its not obvious since the beginning. I loved the parade. There were lotsa references there. There was some mom wearing a Monster uniform….hilarious.

    Ozma ate a hotdog….oh noes…..what does hot dogs do to you again in Macross? Probably not death …

    Haesslich: Bad choice of words maybe. But I hope that she starts to understand that she somehow can fight the disease. With the new OP I just can’t see them killing of Sheryl.

    And if I saw correct in the episode preview then we’ll get a much cooler Klan Klan next week. And if that is possible, then maybe the V-type infection can be fought as well.

    Somehow I don’t see the vajran being noticable by blood tests, for Sheryl have the V-type infection would show on the blood test, but Ranka having baby vajrans in her belly? Not really.

    And that makes you wonder how they could have missed the vajrans when they checked her after being captured by the vajra.

    So there are to many questions at this point and few answers. And with the way the show is going it doesn’t look like there will be any answers anytime soon :(

    By looking at the preview, perhaps the enemy is not the vajra themselves but the grace and leon? SMS owner may or may not be involve in this….

    manga: And people couldn’t see Misa winning the triangle in the first series – just because you can’t see it happening doesn’t mean that it WON’T. One way to interpret the OP is that Sheryl physically dies… but her legacy is carried on by girls like Ranka, who she pulled through the mirror and who looks more ‘real’ than the somewhat spectral Sheryl.

    What this episode WILL probably do is give Ranka a kick in the pants, which she desperately needs if she doesn’t want to lose her shot at Alto. Otherwise, if she just sits there and expects Alto to run to her… well, she’s bound to be disappointed.

    Mmm… let me think… Should I choose the loli like girl or the girl who reminds me of my mother hmmmm….. (now seriously, that elektra complex is disturbing, I would be more comfortable with Alto choosing Sheryl hasn’t that… connection been made.)

    Oh yeah, didn’t think of that certain passage in the OP :( That is probably what will happen.

    After I did see Misa and Hikaru being alone like they were in the first series and with Minmei being the bitch she was well it was kinda obvious, atleast when I watched it.

    I’ve always wondered why girls are so easy to claim that a boy loves her just by some random thing. Sure the heart was nice and all, but I do hope that it was in the planning from the beginning and not they just suddenly made…

    Thus I find no reason for Ranka to be that shocked when she sees Alto and Sheryl in the end. But oh well. Alto is a dick for not choosing one of them and being clear about it.

    Well I just don’t find Ranka natural at all,she is creeping me out not only by her terrible looks but also by her personality and acts,and I don’t know how come Alto doesn’t choose Sheryl already,she was far more closer to him than Ranka dreamed,I mean when Ranka gained famed she forgot about the fact that she was helped by Sheryl,now let’s be honest Sheryl did push her a little bit and supported her to follow her dreams and how does this creepy wanna be star wants to repay her is by showing those attitudes of hers.
    Honestly I started hating Ranka after the episode when Sheryl kissed Alto and Ranka said that she’ll play out of envy mostly,it was pure envy and she seemed malicious,I mean sort of like in the movie a sister who would still her boyfriend.
    Sheryl is a trues star,not Ranka,Ranka seems fake,not that her music doesn’t sound good,it is just her attitude.I mean Sheryl may seem daring but all she does it’s natural,but well like usual characters like Ranka are preferred,I just see her as a huge hypocrite,I mean she seemed in that episode just like the type who would betray even her sister for a guy.For such girl who whines and seems to cry from everything she sure acts bad.
    I don’t know this is one of the few cases where I prefer a blond character,I just see her much more sincere and natural.
