Macross Frontier 11: Stalemate
I was so happy when Sheryl was interrogated on the most obvious question of all: “How come you’ve got so much free time these days?!” This is all for the sake of advancing the plot, I guess, as well as the random
Pegasuspaniel Hydra attack the other day, as setup for the epidemic in this episode.
I’m starting to really wonder if Alto is interested in women/human beings at all. When Sheryl showed up in that odd outfit he didn’t even once break eye contact with her!! Is he really just in love with being a pilot?? Nothing seems to get his blood boiling going except flying and the issue of his Dad.
This love triangle is totally messed up. The guy isn’t into it. The younger gal isn’t really mature enough to wage combat in this arena, and would much rather have a long, mellow platonic friendship before taking things to the next level. And the older gal is ready for it and manipulating world politics in order to win, but she’s so proud she won’t confess to the lad but try to get him to declare his feelings for her first. But he isn’t into it, so…
This is kind of a problem when the show decides to focus on the triangle instead of the conflict with the Vajra. I say you gotta either put love affairs in the back burner and show us some more fighting or give Alto some aphrodisiacs pronto! Judging from the preview, I guess they’re going down the first route…
Question: what’s the point of the young kabuki actor having his eyes closed in every scene? Chou’un in Ikki Tousen does the same thing but there are hints she’s got good reasons to. What about this fellow?
