Macross Frontier Episode Guide 07: First Attack

We start this episode with a confirmation of what we’ve already learned through comments made by Sheryl and her assistant Grace. That the Macross Galaxy fleet was more heavily specialized in cybernetics that the Frontier fleet is.  As we get into this episode, Macross Quarter and several support ships defold into the area of space that two of the Galaxy’s remaining warships are trapped in.…


Macross Frontier Episode Guide 06: Bye Bye Sheryl

It turns out that the purple-haired man that approached Ranka near the end of Star Date is someone named Elmo Kridanik and is the head of a promotion company called Vector Promotions. Thanks to her singing in the Zentradi mall, Ranka has gotten her first big break and has been scouted! All that’s left to do is to get her brother’s permission, which Ozma gives in the most overly dramatic fashion…


Macross Frontier Episode Guide 05: Star Date

Ranka has been suspended from her all girls school following her participation in the Miss Macross contest, and worse, she has her brother angry at her for not asking permission to enter the contest in the first place. Normally, Ranka might have passively followed Ozma’s instructions, but this time she takes a stand and runs out on him in tears.  Meanwhile, Alto is stuck being dragged around…

With the events of the Vajra attack largely behind them, Alto and Ranka start down their paths of pursuing their dreams. As the episode opens, Ranka learns that she has been accepted as a contestant in the upcoming Miss Macross Frontier contest.

Macross Frontier Episode Guide 03: On Your Marks

Once again, we open with some action, but this episode quickly transitions to laying out character histories and motivations. The Vajra that surprised our main trio pulls back an arm to attack but is stopped when Ozma, Michael, and Luca intervene. Michael manages to snipe the Vajra’s head, but that’s not enough. The Vajra breaks free and damages the dome near Alto, Ranka, and Sheryl forcing them…

After the previous episode’s cliffhanger, we pick up the action once more as Alto, Ranka’s brother Ozma, and Alto’s friend Michael battle against the Vajra that have invaded Island 1. Alto proves to be a surprisingly skilled pilot as he manages to keep Ranka safe even as the two of them face a variety of dangerous situations beyond even the attacking Vajra. Back on the ground, Ranka attempt to…


Macross Frontier Episode Guide 01: Cross Encounter

First off, a programming note. There are multiple versions of the initial episode of Macross Frontier. One was an early release with incomplete effects. Another was a slimmed down version for its regular tv slot. What you’re looking for is the Yack Deculture edition. It’s a little longer, at around 31:39 or so, and has a few more character scenes than the other versions. If your version is…


RWBY Volume 6 Review

It's been a while since I watched RWBY. I like to wait until all the episodes are out and binge it rather than follow week to week... and I usually end up sorta forgetting about it for a while. No big deal. It's always there when I want to see it. There was a thing though going on with RWBY, something about it made it less satisfying to me than it had been in the past. Season 5 had some fun…
