In this video you’ll see a conspicuous absence of one drummer Ritsu Tanaka. How can I enjoy this video with such an omission? It’s not that I hate Ritsu, I think she’s a fine little girl and her antics are amusing. She doesn’t look bad either, a claim justified by her design’s consistency with the golden ratio. But between discontent about her not being in a silly video and joy for finding Macross love remembered, Ritsu can kiss my Ranka-fanboy ass.
To the ends of the galaxy!
Four is an inauspicious number.
Four is a number of death.
Four is a name of a character in Gundam. Macross almost never references Gundam. Such is Kawamori’s weird love for Gundam, he makes it a point not to reference his favorite show. Consider that Kawamori Shoji was the president of his college’s Gundam club (with a bunch of future Studio Nue staffers as members). Not the anime club, not the manga club, not the science fiction club, not a Genshiken, A GUNDAM CLUB.
Three is the number of corners in a triangle. The triangle is an important theme in Macross. So, here we see a wish-fulfillment of Mugi x Mio x Yui. But wouldn’t Ritsu be a better substitute for Yui (since Yui already has the incest moe going on)? Maybe there’s already some yuri rutting off-cam involving Sawa-chan. I’ve said too much already. Just have a light and fluffy time with the video and remember love.
