Though not as action packed as the last episode, this episode of Frontier does quite well in the drama department and the characters get a more detailed exposure this time around. It was revealed that Ozma was not Ranka’s real brother and he was actually the pilot who failed to save her family who was attacked by the Vajra. In addition, Ranka has no recollection of that memory due to a mental block. Alto also managed to clear away his doubts about himself thanks to Ranka and has now joined the Skull Squadron as a pilot. Ranka’s singing this episode was absolutely beautiful. If Sheryl’s songs were filled with fire and passion, Ranka’s was full of compassion and motherly warmth. It is also revealed that Ranka will be taking part in the Miss Macross competition. I do hope she would win and end up with Alto.
