The ambiguity is put to rest about the resolution of Macross Frontier’s infamous love triangle. This alone is enough to make it one of the moments of the year. But there’s something to be said about how it happened. I’m not talking about the actual plot mechanics, but rather the spectacle of it. The resolution of the triangle all happened during the course of the greatest Macross song ever sung. Yes, greater than Ai oboete imasu ka? You heard me. That song is iconic and obviously I remember love for it. But I say in terms of musical composition, power, and vocal performance, Sayonara no Tsubasa ~ The End of Triangle owns it hands down. You’d think Kanno Yoko won’t ever top Lion, this song makes Lion look like a kitten. VALKYRIAAAAAA~
Every time you doubt they exist a Galactic Fairy dies.
From their bowels they emit their magic~
The center from which a singer gathers power
That folds the very dimensions.
This is farewell to love .
Remember it, remember how the secret
Rose to the surface of thought and straight into the heart
While falling through the Sky,
Breaking the asymmetrical geometry
Of this flimsy little triangle;
Behind which great battles claim their dead.
The Princess and Fairy refuse the summons
Though they disappear from the narrative…
Leaving us with the last fairy standing
But we listen to her song.
