Theory: Ranka has fold crystal technology inside of her.
Speculation: Sheryl ALSO has the same powers but not unlocked yet. It'll be the big plot twist later.
Speculation: Ozma is going to kick the bucket.
Speculation: Brera is so very obviously going to defect to protect Ranka .
Speculation: Altoh will at some point destroy a vajra battlecruiser singlehandedly.
Reality: I need a sandwich.


Guess he didn't kick the bucket. Which is a pity, because I think a really good show needs a few senseless deaths for it truly to have an impact.

watched it raw.. got new stuff to touch upon...
theory: its all one big arms race.
reason: nun's is tired of being outdone by the sms.
theory: sheyrl alraedy knows her fate.
wishful thinking: 2 more seasons will be made.

off topic: what if macguyver was a jedi?

fact: i want grace dead.
fact: dont really care for the new opening credits.

final thoughts: i'm going to bed i'll watch the subs another time.


partially true i guess it is a arms/ technology race. sheyrl may have cancer or finds out she just a a failed experiment.
maybe she'll use that as motivation to become a pilot.

seriously what if macguyver was a jedi?

still want grace dead or tourtured. still dont like th opening credits.
guess the vajara are a combination of bee's and roaches.

Also .....

whats ppl not noticing that they're wounded and bleeding? or even someone else taking note?
wouldn't it make sense to get checked by a doctor if ur plane has been seriously damaged in battle?

Sheryl is probably gonna come out with a new song in the next episode. Ranka gonna go singing into battle with the vasrya but gets fucked up because she's a wimp. They are gonna cut to sheryl singing some other song like aimo, and saves the day. That's my theory.

Also possibly, she's gonna learn that she's a human clone with vasrya DNA or some fake. Even though she's been saying that she worked really hard to make it as the songstress of the galaxy she was actually set up as nothing more than a tool. I think whatever happens is gonna be a big surprise for sheryl fans.

I doubt she will die though.

Sheryl MUST not DIE!!!

Her charms reminds me of Misa's charms... her powerful singing also reminds me of Nekki Basara's powerful singing (even though in reality i no its not really them singing it, but w/e lol).

The opening theme is super cute but I dont think its appropiate, I was thinking more of "BAM SHAZAAM! UBER POP!" music xD like the old themes (much more dramatic), the theme song now is just cutesy... not that I dont <3 it xD I just dont think it matches the series at this point very well... (with all teh revealed conspiracies going on...)

Besides that! Eee~ I'm really thinking Sheryl is going end up being some failed attempt to genetically create a new lynn minmei or something... I mean, being told that you were created for the sole purpose of defeating aliens and being a possible clone sounds like a pretty cruel fate to me >_>

Grace is so sneaky and manipulative, I <3 it! >: D haha!

Alright, a fresh round of speculation here.

Ranka's not being used to _defeat_ aliens. Why would Grace and company be so manipulative if they were just after something as simple as that? Why can't they be upfront about it? No, Ranka's being used to _control_ the Vajra. They want to refine their technique and develop her, since she's the "little queen". And why do they want to control her? Why not? The Vajra is a constantly evolving mobile weapon that conveniently grows fold crystals, a revolutionary breakthrough in fold technology, inside them.

I'm seeing some inspiration from Dune in the Vajra's being the producers of fold crystals, thus control of the fold crystals means control of interstellar travel means control of the galaxy. Nice touch...also good to see someone surviving the Pineapple Salad scenario.

The Vajra also remind me of the Borg :)

Even with some stereotypical elements, this is the best anime out there IMO

i would not have compared this to dune. especailly the part about the worms being the creators of spice and spice is used for interstellar travel. good job

I've got it!

*MACROSS ZERO SPOILERS*

The Vajira must be a failed attempt to reproduce "bird-people" from Macross Zero and that research station had bunches of people with the same bloodline as the islanders, with Ranka being an attempt at modifying a human to being a preistess. Grace has the same objectives as the Professor but less pure: remaking the universe to rule it herself

I have seen the new opening.

OMG BATTLE 25 / FRONTIER BATTLE SECTION TRANSFORMATION.

OMG OMG OMG OMG

Never in the history of Macross have there been more than ONE Macross fully transformed and kicking ass.
And in Macross Frontier, they have TWO.

It's about time! They kept us waiting a long time for this!

after watching it raw my theories for ep 18:

sheyrl's sickness has some sort of cure or treatment.
stating the obvious; bera is rank's brother , cousin or something

ozma is gonna let ranka go soon


sheyrl will have somesort of miraclous come back. or shyerl and ranka become a singing duo.

the little cute cat thingy that ranka has i thin is a vajara or some sort of variant
or it'll play some sort of signifigant role in some side story
fact: i still want grace dead and bera pwnd



Final thoughts:

a fate worse than being rick rolled or at least funnier:

Sweet! Best beginning thus far and not just because of Battle 25 (that was pretty sick though)! Loved the song and the animation for it!
