Ranka participates in the Miss Macross contest and Altoh begins his training as a member of the SMS.
This episode was pretty good. I would definitely say after watching this, if I was a bit unsure last episode, that after seeing this I can say that Macross Frontier is my favorite show of the new season. There are just several things going on that make it interesting and they all tie together. Hell, we havenâ€™t even gotten to anything that serious yet and itâ€™s still drawing me in, so I canâ€™t wait for more.
Iâ€™m curious as to what the story is between Altoh and his dad. His dad is obviously a somewhat important person in society, or he wouldnâ€™t be judging the contest. However more then that the look Altoh and his dad shared was quite interesting I thought. Altoh seemed a bit scared of him in a somewhat comical way yet his dad seemed like he detested Altoh and said that he didnâ€™t know him. Iâ€™m not sure how this relates to him playing the princess role, if he did it and his dad thought badly of him because of it or if his dad is the one who made him do it, which would explain Altoh being scared of him and that role thatâ€™s associated with him. Iâ€™m sure it wonâ€™t be a major topic, but its something I hope they touch on.
It seems like next episode weâ€™ll see Sheryl hang out with Altoh for a while. Even if she is just going to see him for the earring, they seem to spend time together so itâ€™s not like she just yells at him for it right away and thatâ€™s it. It will be interesting to see what kind of jealousy this invokes in Ranka if she finds out and if any hint of something serious might appear between Sheryl and Altoh. Although I want Altoh to end up with Ranka, for it to be a love triangle there has to be more of a connection then there is right now.
