Altoh is called to fight against the Vajra after everyone learns that Macross Galaxy, Sherylâ€™s home, was attacked by them.
This episode was great. I find myself continually impressed with this series. Not only is it a good all around series so far but unlike other shows that I may say are great overall there hasnâ€™t been a lot of boring useless moments. Iâ€™m really impressed with the amount of content they show that isnâ€™t just fluff. Even some of the lighter moments that focus on romance have a more important meaning later on.
I realize Iâ€™ve said this before but Iâ€™m going to have to say it again and I can tell Iâ€™m going to say it pretty much every post about this series but I really hope Ranka is the one who ends up with Altoh. Itâ€™s not because I dislike Sheryl, which used to be the case. I donâ€™tâ€™ hate her at all anymore really but I still would be devastated if Ranka didnâ€™t end up with Altoh. Iâ€™m getting kind of scared about that because Altoh is spending a lot more meaningful time with Sheryl then Ranka, talking about hating the Frontier, talking about her past on Galaxy, and getting that good luck charm. Even the time Altoh did spend with Ranka only ended up seemingly devastating her as he lied about being alone when she knew he was with Sheryl.
Aside form the romance though, things are progressing very impressively. As I said above there doesnâ€™t seem to be a lot of fluff and filler, a lot of the stuff they show is important and the show is progressing very fast while not feeling rushed. The only thing I can hope for now is that the story ends up being more complicated. Itâ€™s not bad now, but ideally I hope for things to be more then just a straight forward overall mission to defeat these bugs, which I have high hopes for.
