Macross Frontier Ep 18 – Deculture!

Why so serious?

Why so serious?

A real action packed episode after quite some time, including Sheryl’s fate, and that of the Frontier fleet.

Thankfully, after last weeks rather lackluster opening, we get the…

...real high budget stuff!

...real high budget stuff!

That spectacular showcase of well spent animation budget is followed by another spectacular scene, of when Luca realizes that the government has accepted the plan of a high school kid to lead humanity to it’s salvation.

d00d! I was just kidding!

d00d! I was just kidding!

In the meanwhile, Grace was kind enough to let Sheryl know about her extra humble origins (from the trash of Galaxy) and her fate of immediate demise as the hope of humanity. Also…

...kindly die, now.

...kindly die, now.

In a twist that’s totally coincidental, Michael and loli-Klan find out that her pregnancy test was positive

...about Sheryl's illness

...about Sheryl's illness.

Once the facts are confirmed by Sheryl (no thanks to Michael and Klan’s carefree investigation on the library computers!) we see her go into a total meltdown. She realizes that nobody cares about her, and Ranka is everywhere. To make matters spicy worse, she finds her own poster lying on the streets. This, perhaps was the last straw, ending up being the…

...lowest point of her life.

...lowest point of her life.

Alas, even the mighty Sheryl couldn’t take such a serious blow by fate and falls unconscious when Alto Alto’s brother comes and saves her. The government, meanwhile, is announcing Luca’s their brilliant idea of attacking the Vajra and destroying them once and for all with their trump card: Ranka. This will be followed by an immediate procession of bailing out in a ‘Long distance fold’.

Obviously, the Vajra aren’t stupid enough to fall for such a stupid tactic and therefore launch a preemptive strike on the Frontier. This lead to many…

...'oh snap!' moments.

...'oh snap!' moments.

When things seemed at their worst, Ranka and her posse come in her ship to…

...save the day.

...save the day.

In one of the better instances of the battle when Ranka’s ship was about to get blown, her big brother bodyguard, Brera, comes and saves her, looking all…

...cool and shit.

...cool and shit.

Seething with pure jealously, Alto decided to show his superior skills by…

...rams the shit out of some poor Vajra.

...ramming the shit out of some poor by-standing Vajra.

The Mayor finally gives into Leons bitching coaxing, and orders the Macross to fire their main cannons at the Vajra and then proceed with the Long Distance Fold. After displaying an…

...an epic anhiallation...

...epic annihilation...

…of the entire Vajra army (atleast those who were attacking), the fleet Folds just as planned, bringing another brilliant episode to end.
