Macross Frontier – Episode 24September 18, 2008
Macross Frontier 24: Last Frontier (ラスト・フロンティア, Rasuto Furontia)
Altooooo!!!! Well, this episode featured a crazy mix of Terminator and The End of Evangelion
Now…. Either this is just an exaggerated unrealistic representation of a character with severe burns or Grace was a bot already back then.
Ozuma was present at the event as well.
Back to present time.
In the meantime SMS discover the remains of the ship.
I will be back! This is a good time to remind you that Grace’s last name is O’Connor
The text reads: “Your grand daughter, Sheryl.”
Ok… This is just for reference from episode 19 No need to choose anymore: one will be Alto’s wife and the other one – his sister :3 Mao + Bilrer (SMS owner) => Miyo (Alto’s Mother) => Sheryl and Alto. Lynn Minmay => Ranshe Mei (Ranka’s mother) => Ranka. That is just too crazy, isn’t it?
Get ready for the epic battle!
Alto is ready to cook some Vajra Chowder!
Kuran talks to Michael.
That tiny amulet is Michal’s glasses. “I don’t know if you would be happy , Micheal… but I as Zentradi can’t fogive those that killed the man that I loved. LETS GO! ” (Source)
Richard Bilrer says that he’ll meet with someone soon. I wonder if he is talking about Mao.
Another beautiful Alto x Sheryl scene!
Sheryl: Let’s stop pretending to be lovers.
Alto: Wait, Sheryl! I–
[she kisses him]
Sheryl: Don’t say a thing. If you tell me now, no matter what you want to say to me, I know I…I won’t be able to sing. So, please, don’t say anything.
[she walks away]
Sheryl: After it’s all over, we can continue this conversation. So…so, please, Alto! Please save Ranka-chan.
[she takes off her earring and gives it to him]
Sheryl: If you can do that, I’ll listen to what you have to say.
[she smiles as she puts it on him]
Sheryl: You have to come back, understand, Alto?
Alto: [whispering] Sheryl…
Sheryl: Don’t forget, you don’t come across a woman this good every day!
[Alto, tosses his head so earring sparkles]
As I mentioned before, those crystals might be some kind of analog of DNA or a communication system.
The attack begins…
Compare the two smiles
Ikeeeeee! Luca just gained a level
Grace is brainwashing Ranka via Burera.
Rei.. I mean Ranka!
Sheryl is no match for Ranka’s power.
Ranka sings the song Do You Remember Love? This is the original performance.
The devil herself.
Somewhat resembles the creature from Macross Zero.
Now… the highlight of the episode…
Burera tells Alto that Ranka is his younger sister.
Kuran Kuran tries to protect Alto, but gets hit.
See the ending sequence in action! It starts when Sheryl begins to sing and runs till the end
I really have difficulty imagining how they can fit the resolution in a single episode…. Second season?
Preview of the Macross Frontier 25 – final episode:
Synopsis for the next episode from the official website:
Thanks to translation by VF-25 Messiah
“Quarter faces a repeated life or death battle against the Vajra. However, a new existence that’s manipulating the Vajra appears and Frontiers residental area, Island One is endangered.
Battle Frontier faces the enemy mother ship.
At that moment a silhouette of a person starts projecting on the battleships stage.”
Macross Frontier 25 Summary from Wiki:
After arriving at the planet of origin of the Vajra, the Frontier fleet commences an all-out attack and Battle Frontier manages to charge directly into the center of the enemy forces. However, Island One (the main residential area of the fleet) receives a fierce counterattack from the Vajra and becomes endangered. During that time of crisis, the silhouette of a person starts projecting on the stage at the Battle 25 bridge.
Can you guess who is that silhouette?
