Ep 16 Ranka Attack!
Alto attacks some yellow Vajra.
Flashback to his talk with Mr. Bilrer. Bilrer asks Alto if he has a dream. Bilrer's dream is to connect the galaxy by making fold travel easier. Illustrated by trains flying in space. (Galaxy Express 999 otaku?)
A legacy for all the Protoculture's children. Humans, Zentradi, Zolan and others and perhaps Vajra. All possible with Fold Quartz. The same crystal on Bilrer's ring, Sheryl's earring and within Ranka.
Skull Squadron brings home Vajra corpses on a stick.
At Mihoshi Alto is irritated that Brera is in class. Gets a beat down by Brera. Much to Ranka's distress.
Grace the b*tch stole Ranka from Elmo. Elmo left out in the cold and depressed at Folmo Mall drinking.
Sheryl is surprise her manager is with Ranka.
Grace manipulates Ranka to sing a remix of Aimo.
Brera discusses why Ranka into it. Ranka asks how Brera knows Aimo.
When Brrera left the baby Vajra in Ranka's VF back pack showed up. Ranka named it Ai-chan.
Alto on his way to SMS finds a sick Sheryl in the park where he, Ranka and Sheryl were when the Vajra attacked the second time.
Alto brings her to the Quarter in his quarters. (Redundant isn't?)
Alto gets beat up the second time of the day by Sheryl when she woke up. A girl in a guys room? Alone? Suspicious
Alto finally notices that Sheryl has the same fold quartz as his boss. Getting a bit too close when Mikhail comes.
Mikhail tries to leave when them to their moment. Which Alto denies till Cathy goes on the monitor. Alto hides Sheryl in his bunk she so would not be seen and he in trouble.
Cathy briefs them in a operation, Ranka Attack, which shocks them. Meanwhile Ozma oniisan chews out Leon on the operation.
When the operation starts Mikhails wonders if this Minmay Attack would work.
Klan compares the Vajra to Protodevlin. Protoculture biological weapons that went wrong and pacified by Basara 14 years before.
Ranka rides Rabbit-1, the Koenig Monster that Canaria pilots. Ozma converses with Ranka and returns to his VF.
SMS Skull Squadron armed with reaction weapons is accompanied by Brera and the rest of the VF-27 Antares squadron.
Sheryl sneaks out to the bridge, bribing the security with a kiss, despite being said by Alto stay in his room.
Sheryl asks Capt. Wilder if she can observe the operation. Wilder allows her despite Cathy's protest.
SMS attacks the asteriod Vajra nest with reaction weapons forcing them out in the open while Ranka starts singing confusing their ranks.
Everyone is amazed with Ranka's ability. The president is delighted at the Vajra being destroyed. Klan say Deculture!
Grace monitors Ranka's vitals especially her emotions but it seems heart isn't into this slaughter.
One of the red Vajra starts to target Rabbit one , Alto and Brera butt heads to save Ranka.
Brera says he'll protect Ranka and Alto isn't needed.
The battle is over the bridge bunnies compare Ranka to Minmay but Bobby objects compares Ranka to Basara.
comments: Macross 7 references galore. Emotion monitors, Protodevlin, Basara.
Though if Basara was in Frontier he would object in using song as a tool of death.
