Macross Frontier Episode Guide 20: Diamond Crevasse

Where last episode ended on a multipart cliffhanger, this episode begins by showing us all the pieces that were left hanging. Most of the scenes are unchanged from episode 19, but this time we do see that Alto and Sheryl’s closeness was less a passionate embrace and more Alto catching Sheryl as she had yet another dizzy spell. That jump from Ranka’s disbelief to the opening credits is still…


Macross Frontier Episode Guide 19: Triangler

We open this episode with Ranka dreaming about her mother not being able to come to her because of work. Disconcertingly, the dream seem to end with young Ranka reflected in a Vajra’s compound eye.

He leads Alto to Sheryl who not only has recovered, but is…

Mr. Birler seems sure that somehow the discover of the Vajra will help him do it. On the bridge of the Macross Quarter, the bridge bunnies are impressed by Alto’s combat performance but also wonder…
