Just rewatch the original SDFM, watched it many times before but since I knew the whole story I was usually doing several things while watching it and didn't got to deeply on the subtle things of the show. Don't know if anyone discussed this before, search it but did not find. I was always curious on the ending credits after every episode on how melancholic the music and lyrics were, talking about going away, etc., how it sorta cut out of the feeling of the show being a space opera. Also specially why the ending credits were not cut like the show opening in every episode. Until I saw episode 28 and 36. On episode 28 I realized the ending credits is the scene where Misa is seeing Hikaru's photo album with only Minmei pictures and how sad she gets. Given on how its all setup, the album color/design and placing in the table along with the space helmet/Fokker Helmet., so, everytime an episodes ends you know how Misa feels with the lyrics talking about not being able to follow somebody, uncertainty about today and the future and running towards a goal in the distance. In the end of Episode 36, the last scene after Minmei fairs good bye on going away to find a new reason to sing leaving Hikaru with Misa, there's a hand closing an album with Hikaru and Misa together in the wreckage of the Macross being the last picture . Its Misa closing her album now with her in it. When the ending credits role, is now Mari Iijima/Minmei singing, but the lyrics are slightly different talking on how she's chosen her new path to reach her goal in the distance. This is why I love SDFM. So, was this common knowledge?
