Haha, I couldn't help but put this up, since in a love triangle there will definitely be fans for both possible shippings.

So, Alto x Ranka or Alto x Sheryl? Though I personally think Sheryl is a more logical pair, I'd actually want to root for Ranka - I like her character more, and it's more non-canon, IMO (I'd like to see something new).

I haven't read any of the manga or watched any previous Macross series', so I can't predict who the story is leaning toward...is there a pattern in the previous series'?

So far I like Alto x Ranka more, however that might change as the series progresses. In the orignal Macross I was rooting for Minmei at the start, but found myself rooting for Hayase later on - the same thing might happen here.

I like Sheryl over Ranka. (I prefer her more assertive, strong character over Ranka's clumsy cutesy type) but hey, maybe Altoh can end up with Mikhail~~~ :) Ok, I will have to wait for the doujinshi for that, LOL

Sheryl easily over Ranka atm... Ranka and Alto's chemistry feels more like brother/sister or best friends atm than anything like lovers. They do have a bond though but as of episode 6 Sheryl has the same bond with Alto in addition to all their sexual tension from before.

I must say, I was originally a Sheryl hater at the start of the show...but like many others, after seeing the "nice" side of Sheryl, she's won my vote =P
Even though the age gap is "only" two years difference, maturity wise, Ranka is just too childish. Which is cute, but not exactly great girlfriend material I suppose.

Personally, even after seeing Episode 6, I still don't like Sherryl~ She annoys me for some reason

Even if she may seem childish, I really like her a lot~ To each his/her own I guess

I started as a Ranka guy because I've always been a "girl next door" shipper.

But seeing episode 5 and 6 totally changed me. Sheryl and Alto just have such great chemistry. Sheryl x Alto FTW!

Sheryl's won every single "Sheryl or Ranka" or Fav Frontier character poll I've seen on English forums, she's doing the same on Chinese forums and she's beating Ranka in the only two fav characte polls in Japan I know about.

I'm all for Altoh x Ranka. While it is true that Sheryl has her sweet side, she's giving off a "Slut Princess" vibes. She's giving way, way, way too much fanservice and UST.

Not one I'd like, seriously. I'd start a hatelist about her if I have to <_<

Yes, I hate her THAT much. Yes, I know this is only fiction. And yes, she is a slut, period.

Let's see if the series can make me change her mind.

I can understand how you could come to such a conclusion after episode 8.

Hmm, hard to say. I too didn't really like Sheryl at first ... but I instantly thought Ranka was cool. Though I think I can agree with others in saying that her and Alto seem more like the brother and sister type.

she just knows shes better than everyone else and doesn't live by their standard but her own.

shes not out of control like britney spears, she knows exactly what her responsiblities are as a star and the rest of the time does whatever the hell she wants because she can. seems like shed be alot of fun to hang out with if you ask me.

i still prefer ranka :D

Sorry, but this is one of the most stupid things i have ever heard. Ranka is only 1 or 2 years younger than Alto, so i don´t see how that can count as pedophilia....

On another note.

Ranka is my choice, Sheryl just seems like someone who would jump anyone because she feels like it while Ranka only have her eyes on Alto. Not to mention that Sheryl seems to use everything she can do get Alto to obey her.

Sheryl seems to want to own Alto and nothing more, Ranka have at least true feelings for him. Hopefully his brain will start working so he can get together with Ranka soon.

Sheryl has feelings for Alto, she just hasn't realized it herself yet, it's going to take something like seeing those two holding hands or kissing together before she realizes it. Sheryl and Alto have a very tsundere relationship with each other, sorta like say Lawrence and Horo from Spice and Wolf. You can tell they enjoy each others company even though Sheryl appears to just want to mess with him and Alto is annoyed.

And yes I hope Alto and Ranka's relationship gets moving because until it does Sheryl and Alto's will stay the same as it is right now. Need a scene equivalent to Mao from Kimikiss Pure Rogue seeing Kouichi kissing Hoshino on the train.

I'll admit that the fact that BOTH Sheryl and Alto are tsunderes makes for an amusing relationship.

Yeah the Ranka and Alto relationship in comparison is pretty boring, even their fanart is boring compared to Sheryl and Alto.

Ranka is too good for Alto. Hime-sama is far better off with someone like Sheryl, not to mention they have better chemistry (male and female tsundere ^_-)

Why is it that everyone likes someone who's clearly self-centered and does a lot of things for the heck of it disregarding other people's opinions rather than someone who's honest and is working for her dreams?

Strong? Define strong. If the point of her acting all seductive to Alto and even transferring to his school is for her to look strong, nope, sorry, she failed. The fact that Sheryl kept singing when Galaxy is under attack made her look strong already, but her recent acts made her look shallow by comparison.

i'm more for sheryl since.. with ranka it just doesn't make sense to me to have a moe-esque girl in a franchise known as one of the greatest space operas.
sheryl fits the environment a tad better...

just my two cents.

Alto won't end up with anyone. I think by the end of the series both Sheryl & Ranka will have disappeared much like Sara Nome does in Macross Zero. Just my guess.

Although he might end up with Sheryl's remaining earring as a souvenir, or Ranka's disgusting slug-cock phone.

Even if Ranka has had more character progression so far, I'd say Sheryl has had more relationship building with Alto.

No argument there. I just felt like pointing out that Ranka isn't just another moe character. They've gone a long way towards making her a fleshed out, interesting person.

But I bet somewhere in Japan they've held this poll and Ranka already won by a HUGE landslide.

Ranka and Alto, of course!
If it were Sheryl and Alto, you could get confused about which is the woman, lol.


I'm kidding. But personally, I think Sheryl is too dominating... she acts like a child around Alto too much, which is probably healthy for her... but Alto is more ... he's got too much potential to be degenerated into sub fodder for a woman whose already got everything and everyone under her power.

As for Ranka and Alto, don't you think think they look cute together? Both aren't completely mature yet, so they can learn together, and fate seems to draw them together all the time... instead of Sheryl acting on her own.
Plus, ... yes. Ranka is just cute. I love her phone! And her hair baffles me! And ... yes. They're like really good friends right now, its better... and I feel bad for Ranka, alwasy mistaking that Alto and Sheryl have something powerful going on between them, when it's always Sheryl. It's bad!

(images in Kurona's head: Big Bust Sheryl shoving cute Ranka in swimsuit to the side with her melons and brazenness ; - ; Iiya da!!
IT'S WROOOOOOOOONG)

And the height . x. That's not much of a big issue though... just... yeah.

Anyhow, the personality types of Alto and ranka seem to fit better... Alto and Sheryl, the result is kind of expected, and there's no nervous potential... maa. So Alto, fight for Ranka-chan!!

Actually going by online and magazine polls Sheryl is more popular in Japan (which is a pleasant surprise) as well as China and English forums. I don't know about 2ch but since that's the land of moe and lolicon I would be amazed if Sheryl was more popular there.

Damn. I am amazed. I didn't think she'd win because of something stupid like moe, but rather because she's one of those hard-working, shooting for her dreams-type characters that people in Japan love so much.
