Macross Frontier Ep 22

Plot advancement……..slow….

This episode had such little development that I can probably describe it all in 3 lines.

Sheryl starts singing again. The NUNS and SMS squad join up to become pirates. Ranka finds her home planet.

Let’s elaborate though.

So the episode starts off with some unimportant stuff, followed by Luca and Leon meeting up a very…

...malnutritioned Sheryl...

...malnutritioned Sheryl...

…to tell her that because of her disease (and Fold Quartz earring) she too can create Fold Waves like Ranka. Except more weak. So she agrees to sing for humanity’s sake again. It has nothing to do with self preservation, at all.

Later on during the evening, people in the SMS and NUNS squadron start getting…

...very...

...very...

...shocking...

...shocking...

...messages.

...messages.

Also, Sheryl comes back to Alto’s family mansion and finds him waiting for her. So happy was she that she fainted. Later on, when she wakes up, she’s in a very…

...melancholic mood.

...melancholic mood.

Probably trying to remember…

...what happened earlier in the night.

...what happened earlier in the night.

Anyways, amusing compromising positions aside, we get back to Leon (aka the 5th President of Frontier fleet). Whilst he’s busy giving a…

,,,compassionate speech...

...compassionate speech...

…about how he’s going to ensure the survival of their race by destroying the Vajra, Captain Jeffery is busy…

...turning the fleet into Pirates!

...turning the fleet into Pirates!

Apparently, that shocker message earlier was a call for all members of NUNS and SMS to party up and steal the SMS Macross Quarter. Most join…

...but some don't.

...but some don't.

Leon orders a fleet of pilot to go after the escaping SMS Macross Quarter whilst Sheryl is back to…

...her old self again.

...her old self again.

What follows next is a rather weak scuffle between the new Pirate NUNS squadron and the Goody-two-shoes SMS noobs. Before jumping away though, both Ozma and Alto have a slightly exciting dogfight, only to end in a…

...stalemate.

...stalemate.

The episode ends with Sheryl’s song “Yōsei” (妖精 “Fairy”). After the credits, we see Brera and Ranka…

...discover...

...discover...

...Earth with 3 moons and a bigass hurricane?

...Earth with 3 moons and a bigass hurricane?

Oh and about halfway through the episode, Leon orders the execution of Grace and she finally gets…

...what she deserves!

...what she deserves!

Except she doesn’t. Instead we see all the guards sent to kill her lying dead etc. on the floor. And Grace is…

...happy about something.

...ecstatic about something.

So, not much happens this episode, but then I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular at this point either. Things will definitely ramp up come next weeks show. Therefore…
