The better woman? The better singer? The best love interest?

No need to argue ^^; Ranka is the best! Cutest and best singer (Nakajima Megumi is far better than May'n. Nakajima Megumi's voice is so nice, "special" and sweet - you can recognize it very easily - On the contrary, May'n's voice is too plain and I hate her way to sing).

Yea I participated in many a flame war while the show was airing around this very subject...Scary at times, but fun just the same to see people so passionate. ~_^

I'm pretty much the exact opposite of kuma really haha...Love May'n's voice have all her CDs (Macross or otherwise) and a huge Sheryl fan. Kinda odd really considering I tend to gravitate towards the more loli/imouto characters in most shows.

Well I'd have to say that I go the Ranka route! though I have to admit that Sheryl is great in her own right as well. When it comes to Ranka overall, nearly every aspect of her character is memorable, her voice, songs, and not to mention her performances (can anyone say Seikan Hikou?) are the pinnacle of true idolism. Sheryl just seems to come off as too cliche of personality for me to admire her as much as Ranka. But don't lose faith Sheryl fans! make sure to support your star and let everyone know your opinion, I want to see some epic debate'in up in this discussion!

Epic debate eh...Ah I'm probably too even keeled to be the instigator of such a thing. :p

I'd say what got me with Sheryl at first was her stage presence...I honestly couldn't stand her at all when she first showed up, but damn when she stood up on that stage with that outfit and whip mic I totally fell for her character with the fact she could be a royal pain in the ass spoiled princess truely suiting her.

Ranka was pretty much the flipside of that...I liked her from the start, but got alittle putoff the further she went down the idol route and none of her singing segments really got me worked up like Sheryl could. I do adore her little star gesture thingy she seems to have trademarked though. ~_^

True indeed! that's how I felt about the two as well, in the beginning Sheryl pretty much had it made fame and reputation wise and as such was presented as the stuck up idol, Ranka on the other hand had nothing to her name and was going through the slow struggle of becoming an aspiring star. Then later in the series they had a complete role reversal, with Sheryl nearly losing everything and Ranka becoming the famous idol in the spotlight. At that point I gained more adoration for Sheryl because she was basically in the same position as Ranka was at the start (or possibly worse). I guess I favor the one who is in the grips of conflict working towards their goal due to the fact that their personality shows strongest at that point rather than she who stands on top of the world and has it "made". But I still go with Ranka, I can't be a two-sider and play it safe, a discussion is a discussion.

Sheryl all the way! :D

I really do like Ranka's voice and there are more things about her that I like, like how her hair seems to move on its own at times and stuffs, but I am still partial to Sheryl so far in the anime. ^^: I have yet to finish the series, so maybe I will end up changing my mind later on, but for now it's Sheryl. ^_^
Hi! My name is yama. I am niced to meet you.™

Ha Ha yes alto certainly has things cut out for him doesn't he? problem is he's as dense as board when it comes to his possible romantic relationships. I like where this discussion is going! Sheryl is starting to get some massive support, and with that the playing field of personal opinion becomes even more interesting!

I'm definitely Team Ranka, while i do appreciate Cheryl, Ranka stole my heart.

[spoilers!!!]

Ranka and Cheryl both started out with nothing. Cheryl had a worse start than Ranka but when Grace "discovered" her she let the fame get to her head (maybe for the fact that she had no family, friends, etc.) When the show first started out i could not stand Cheryl at all, but closer to the end of the series Cheryl began to humble herself, doing so she earned my respect and i even began to like her songs a bit more. May'n is an good singer but Megumi Nakajima is an EXCELLENT singer! Like Kuma said, Ranka's voice is way more distinctive, her songs are also much more memorable (in my opinion anyway =/.) When Ranka earned her spotlight she remained humble and she didn't force herself on Alto like Cheryl did. Also, Ranka did not seem as jealous when it came to competing for Alto's affection.

i also hate hate hate hate hate hate Alto, he's such an idiot. Ranka AND Cheryl should just go find new boyfriends or something

TL:DR: Ranka>>Cheryl>>>>>>>>>Death>Alto

Or just forget the guys all together...*cough* :p

I wouldn't worry too much about coming to dislike Sheryl later in the show tak...I don't wanna explicitly spoil anything for you, but I'll just say I came to like her even more as the show spunned down to its finale. ~_^

Talking about this reminds me of the rumors that the love triangle might resolve in the movie...then it turned into it being just a recap...and then Klan centric...Should probably check out where it stands now.

I apologize to all for briefly going off topic If I may, but KLAN CENTRIC is something i just cannot ignore! I heard the movie was going to be a recap of the series as well, but does this mean that Klan's role will be focused on more in contrast to the actual show? If so then this movie will be top priority, and I mean TOP PRIORITY!!!

Ah it was just a rumor I think it got picked up from something the director said in a interview about expanding her role in the movie and that he mentioned in passing he'd like to make a series based solely on her...Like I said its been awhile since I bothered to follow the latest news on the movie.

Probably stopped worrying about it since as a poor foreigner gonna have to wait until it goes to DvD before I can see it... >_<

I think that Sheryl is very beautiful but I don't like her personality. Ranka is better :)

I can't decide!! ;_;
I choose Klan? Haha..

I don't know. I absolutely love them both. Sheryl is a lot more mature (and I LOVE May'n's voice ;__; ) but she's kind of *blunt* bitchy sometimessss... and Ranka is really nice and sweet but also too stereotypical for me. She's funny though, in a way....

I don't know. I don't even know. TTuTT Can I choose both? Eheh~

Umm, can't choose, I like 'em both as characters and singers... T_T

Sheryl's Diamond Crevasse is one of my favorite songs for being very moving...While Ranka's Seikan Hkou is another favorite for being very upbeat...Then I like Sheryl and Ranka's version of What 'bout my Star! ^^
