Uh... I'd come up with a witty retort, but unfortunately I don't know any Antarctica jokes.

Really? I was sure you'd try to work Song Energy in there somewhere.

Haven't seen Happy Feet yet, although I hear it involved penguins singing and producing some form of anima spiritia. :lol:

Does it really?!?!?! I got it from the 5 free blu-ray deal last year but never watched it. I might have to pop in in tonight tho...

Regardless...

"Good-bye, sister" might just be a flashback episode chronicling the details of the 117th fleet. When Ranka goes catatonic PTSD she always mentions "niichan."

And, I know 1/2 of MW would probably stop watching, but I'd be ecstatic if

Ranka gets a custom VF-27 with sound boosters

^_^ for "Ranka Attack"

BTW, I heard somewhere, it's from KISSDUM.

Very nice. You've done your duty.

I don't think we'll actually see anyone getting killed yet, specially Ozma or Brera. Ozma has not yet recovered Kathy and/or developed some kind of opposition towards Leon and Brera's rivalry with Alto, as well as his own role within this whole NUNS conspiracy, hasn't been sufficiently developed yet.

For example,

Episode 15 is called "Lost Peace", which may indicate that there will be a large scale attack on Frontier by the Vajra. By the end they may have completely overrun the colony fleet. The original SDF Macross had a similar episode with Zentradis invading the SDF-1.

I am of the opinion that Lost Peace will be the Galaxy fleet and Grace coming out of the shadows and either the cold war goes hot or it begins with an "incident"...

Has there been confirmation of how many episodes there will be for Mac Frontier?

I wouldn't mind seeing something on the order of 40+ episodes if they can maintain the decent animation and a good storyline. One thing they should not do is rush the story. Right now, there is a nice pacing to the story, part of the reason is that there are numerous interesting characters centering around the three main characters and enough room for good character development. There are enough interesting threads that hopefully they can push up the episode counts, and give a nice and satisfying end.

I always hoped that the original SDF Macross was a bit longer.

No official confirmation yet.

My sources have said 26 eps. Some people here say 25 eps.

Either 25 or 26 eps ties in with the officially released disk count of 9 DVDs/BluRay disks.

If you want more eps, you need to hope we get a second series.

Right now, the count looks to be around 24-25 episodes (basically 1/2 a year) but we still don't have a clear number yet. Chances of an extension are somewhat slim since TV lineups for Fall/Autumn are fairly close to being set in stone. The hope would be for a 2nd season, but right now, we really don't know as Volume 1 of the DVD/Blu-Ray (a good sales indicator) hasn't even been released yet (street date 7/25/2008).

very very rough and possibly full of mistakes :p

Ep 15 Lost Peace

Until Sheryl recovers from her illness, all her work are cancelled. Heard that Ranka's popularity is rising, and somehow feels insecure/worried. At such a time, Alto and Ranka gives her a get-well visit.

so could the "Lost Peace" be a show down between the girls? Both for fame and alto? :ph34r:

BTW, @Kronnang Dunn, i think u're editing the wiki Frontier episode lists? regarding Mother's Lullaby, i'm not sure if its really a secret with Aimo song, but rather the Aimo song is a mother's lullaby and its something to do with Ranka's memories (and the truth behind the memories - if that made any sense). you might be right though... the summary is quite vague...

WTF is KISSDUM and why do I care? :p

KISS DUM is an anime Sci-Fi series from 2007. Shoji Kawamori did the mecha designs...

Yeah... I actually meant that with my summary,

"Aimo" holds the secret of Ranka's past

... Thx for the summary for episode 15. Will update wikipedia with it...

Well, they could be clever and

have both the beginning of a proper rivalry between Ranka and Sheryl and the start of major hostilities against the Vajra.

Mostly increases across the board. A few dips. I expect some haphazard ratings with EuroCup going on (which I've heard has been pretty good).

what if, Ranka starts to get closer to Brera in the coming episodes, at the same time, Ozma and Cathy get back together and Leon finds out, the Vajra attack and Leon takes the opportunity and orders Brena to single out and destroy Skull 1, he kills Ozma and Alto swears revenge, he then finds out Brera is the VF-27 pilot and starts a massive showdown and when Alto is about to kill Brera somehow Agent G tells Alto he's Ranka real brother and he goes through a moral dilemma if he should cause more suffering to Ranka... hmmm...

by the way, those rating sucks...c'mon!, how could Code Geass be so far up, that show is getting horribly repetitive and predictible

Easy - it's on in the afternoon in Sunday, when a bunch of school age kids are at home and able to watch it. Compare to Macross F's timeslot - only those kids who have figured out how to set up the VCR/DVD-R/Bluray-R(?) to record it will be able to watch it. Most salary men are also asleep by the time it airs.

Frontier also comes out on Thursdays right? How come ratings for that aren't accounted for? :huh:

Because apparently a yaoi-bait sis-con Char-wannabe is more popular than a trap-hime who's into ersatz-yuri. :lol: Plus I hear that the last arc of CG had more than its fair amount of loli and fanservice. :ph34r:

The Kanto region's population as I understand, is denser than the Kansai region. Basically the Kanto region population is about double that of the Kansai area being closer to Tokyo. You may wish to ask the people living there though.

Opposite. The Kansai region (specifically Osaka Prefecture) has the highest population density of all of Japan.

Though you are correct in that the Kanto region has a larger total population, with the greater Tokyo area (including Chiba Prefecture, Saitama, Kanagawa, etc..) having the highest total population.

That does look like sheet music, but it's not official. It's arranged by Toyawako Yamazato.

There's another sheet music that turned up, but it also looks unofficial:

Well that solves his problem with Klan seeing as he can safely be macronized. Only problem now is genetic compatibility, just like Zomeo and Zoliet (the radio drama playing all the time in Dynamite 7).

So Mihael has a pouch into which he can stuff contraband. :lol:

And I can't believe I'm giving some lucky Macrossworlder such an obvious set-up, but here goes...

*deep breath*

"If Michael is Zolan, then where's his one-eyed snake?"

There. It's all teed up for you. Now hit a homer.

I wonder if he tells his ladies it's his "space whale..."

Probably not even a base hit, but meh. I saw some snippets of the novel on AS, but shouldn't his ears be like 6" further out on each side if he's Zolan?

Yeah, they should...and he should have furrier arms, as well. And two-tone hair.

And if "Zomeo and Zoliet" is correct, he definitely couldn't be HALF-Zolan.

Yeah...I'm not buying it.
