Macross F recap.... NO WAY!

A good anime like this should have more! not another version of something I've watched...

But if Sheryl is there, who cares... cuz I probably gonna enjoy the singing more than the plot

I'm surprised this didn't make its way on here. One has Sheryl singing and the other has Ranka singing so I labeled them respectively. ^_^

Sheryl Version



Ranka Version

According to the interview with Director Kawamori on FamiTsuu magazine, the format of the Macross F movie will be similar to "Do you remember love?". The story and characters are the same but will be shown from a different point of view.

But the most astonishing thing in this interview was this remark of Kawamori. "We don't need to stick to monogamy. Some species other than human have polygamy." wow...oh, but polygamy is allowed in some cultures, Kawamori-san.


Will it be like where Alto's Harem get an upgrade of +1/2/3/4..(plz say NO)

Alto's a prick who can't even make a proper decision and the ending was a real disappointment.

Hope the movie can make up for it.

Based on what you said he is going to kiss both???? As well as marry them??? You know I foresaw this cause the way the personality was at the end even though they said they will compete. All Alto has to do is tell them both I LOVE YOU. I think they will understand maybe....more Ranka than Sheryl.
