I'd have not killed off Galaxy at the very least. Save up for a Season 2 and really take your time finishing the story. Don't half-ass it like they did. It's not like they'd be hurting for money with how successful this show is being merchandise wise. I don't mind another season or OVA's to get it done properly.

It was rushed too fast and they tried to tie everything up in one shot. It just didn't work.

Episode Review with some stuff not yet mentioned.

-Ranka explains to Alto that the Vajra also have feelings, but they don’t understand why we fight each other so much so they tried to rescue/kidnap her in order to understand humans. Thanks to hers and Sheryl’s songs, the Vajra have finally understood us.

not quite. here's a better translation: ranka explains that the vajra think and feel as one, and they couldn't understand why humans are so independent, scattered, and sometimes quarrel some. because ranka had fold communications ability, they considered her similar to themselves and kept trying to rescue her from the humans which they did not understand. thanks to her and sheryl having different songs, they finally understood that this sense of individuality in humans is not necessarily a bad thing and that humans weren't all bad.

Thank you VF-25!!! I knew I saw it that way too, just rewatched it to be certain!!! :D

I watched it again as well.

Could you please tell me how you got that he saluted both... when he was right next to Battle Frontier's bridge with Quarter in the distant background? The VF isn't THAT big.

God. I felt utterly trolled by Kawamori.

Seriously, WTF is this ending!? I'm expecting a second season or sort to wrap up the series instead of one rushed, messy episode which still leaves alot of unresolved plot points.

This is rubbish. I will have to stop buying any Macross F DVDs for now until I'm convinced the Frontier movie will do the Macross franchise justice. Ugh, another good potential anime in 2008 that might had ended up in the special place of my heart turned out into another medicore and cliche series.

hehe am surprised that ppl can have a debate over this ;) all you guys must going thru hell with the indecision on the love triangle

As I said, the lack of finish of the love triangle wasn't my biggest beef or even my 2nd biggest beef with 25. The music, and the plot endings really were a mess. Galaxy deserved a 2nd season.

I believe the actual Galaxy is still out there since we didn't see it. Not to mention the rest of the other Galaxy ships that are unaccounted for.

Battle Galaxy however... got messed up.

Wait... so was battle Galaxy doing the same movements as huge-Ranka was during ep 24? That would be...interesting to see...

And this movie you speak of. I hope it isn't just a compilation movie (ala Gundam) and an actual sequal. I think they left enough open for more story, don't you?

Damn... now all I have to look forward to next week is withdrawls... Twas such a great show!

Used to be. Saw a Mayan statue of the Birdman.

Like "The Protoculture was here" or "Shin Kudo, Sara Nome and Birdman was here".

Bilrer was expecting to find Minmay. LOL

That would only work if Minmay had fold quartz earrings too... which look an awful lot like what she's wearing during her DYRL performance/final battle sequence.

*stirs pot*

Just saw the RAW, and didn't understand a darn thing........but I'm still gonna post some pics...... :D

This is the result of Alto's bad habit of always ejecting those Super Pack and Armored Pack Parts. :lol:

VF-25 with only the Leg Parts of the Super Pack? AND WTF!!! No Gunpod?

More like, how did she reach the controls? There's gotta be a height requirement.

EX Gear. There are no standard control per 25, it depends on the EX Gear to link up to it.

Then again, we gotta explain why a loli has her own EX Gear.

No need to explain actually, since IIRC wasn't Luca and Loli-Klan just of the same height and size? :mellow:

Also did Machida get pwn3d by the V-9? :ph34r: Hope he made it. :mellow:

BTW...this picture just screams.....I WILL BREAK YOU. :lol:

The only thing that I didn't like about the end was the music medley. I kjust wanted one good song, and I guess I am glad that it wasn't focused on Anata no Oto. I was hoping for a good Extended Version of Lion, but perhaps that would be rectified in the Movie.

Great ending which tied things up nicely. Well done to the MacF cast & crew for bringing us one of the best Macross TV series since the original!

20/10 - Clearly the best anime since two decades.

(Macross 11 looked awesome btw. XD)

Also, what unresolved love-triangle? It's pretty clear that Alto got Sheryl and Ranka has regained her brother. The scene where Alto and the VF-27 were flying side by side with those two images of Sheryl and Ranka not only confirms, but also underlines that fact, with a visual representation.

This was so good. Already watched it 5 times and I can't stop.

It's been a fantastic ride, and I'm still basking in the afterglow. Will definitely finish collecting the Blu-rays. Already have the first three ordered.

I like how they "ended" the triangle: with Triangler!

Together: "Who are you going to kiss?"

Ranka: "Me?"

Together: "or"

Sheryl: "Me?"

Pick one Alto, goddammit!!! :lol:

The last episode was sick! Though i gotta say, while SDF:M felt a handful of episodes too long, Frontier felt a handful of episodes too short, though if a movie truly is in the works hopefully it'll provide that extra bit of resolve that was slightly lacking. That was some extreme mecha porn, every mech design short of Destroids had some clear cut shoot em up screen time.

I think that was the problem. The "macross speed" medley isn't bad, but I believe that is the thing that brings the rushed sense, it was too many songs and quite fast

Actually the destroids did have their chance to shine this episode.
