To the Ends of the Galaxy
This fanfic is set after episode 25 of Macross Frontier.
This series follows the events from To the Ends of a
Galaxy. It is written in a slice
- Wings: While the colonies of
Frontier and Galaxy form the United States
Frontier, Sheryl still has to face her own battles: pilot boot camp.
- Serenade: Ranka
attends Mihoshi's boot camp to test her musical skills.
Little did she know, her relationship with Sheryl would also be tested.
After watching the last episode of Macross Frontier, I was a bit
dissatisfied with the ending. Alto didn't explicitly choose any
of them, although it seemed there were more brownie points in the
Sheryl x Alto bucket. What irked me most was that he said "You
are both my wings." What an unromantic thing to say.
And because I'm such a Robotech/Macross fan since I was a kid, I
rewatched all of it again. Then the Sheryl x Ranka pairing
started to form.
This pairing became more obvious towards the end of the series.
There's more pictures of them holding hands or in compromising
positions, especially with the last episode, "Your Sound".
This image is just too suggestive:
- They're nekkid
- Holding hands
- I heard from a japanese friend that when a couple is drawn back
to back as shown above, it indicates an intimate relationship
Finally, take a closer look at the picture below. Where are
So I concluded, "Ok, these two need a fic. Hence, 'To the Ends of
the Galaxy' was born. Three chapters were originally planned, but
stuff got added along and it ballooned to 5 chapters. Gaahh...
Anyway, I hoped you enjoyed reading it. Thanks for stopping by!
Onwards, together... leaving the past
- I created a forum on FFnet to talk about the pairing and the
Study English Macross Style
- This is from a special booklet in
A collection of Sheryl x Ranka stuff! \o/
- Lion - Lyrics by Gabriella
Robin. Composed by Yoko Kanno.
Goodies to buy:
- On The Beach
Japanese Tea Cup * Note the it
says Sheryl Nome X Ranka
Lee. They're paired on this tea cup. :3
- Japanese Tea Cup
Alto has a tea
cup. Klan has a tea cup too. But Sheryl and Ranka are
together in two different tea cups. I guess they come as a set.
- Desktop Clock BTW, Alto is
paired with Brera on another desktop clock.

- Note: to view the page in English, look at the right hand side
for the "Click here to see in English." link. For the japanese
text that's not translated, try translate.google.com. It's not
accurate, but gives you an idea.

Collection - I recommed this over getting the singles and the OSTs
because you get most of the songs and it's cheaper than buying OST 1
& 2. Plus, it comes with a 32 page booklet with lyrics.
Beware of fakes at anime cons! It's a fake when the case is only
1 CD case thick. The Vocal collection is 2 CD cases thick.
Cons charge about $10 less than the original, so you might as well get
the real one.
- The Zentraedi Headquarters -
a mostly japanese site, but has some english. Check out the Games
section for some flash games.
- A DOS-based veritech
flight simulator. Note: the game defaults to
Joystick. Read vvfs.doc and configure for joystick or keyboard.
- Gameboy-based Macross
game with Minmei hitting the gong for you! You can play it
online, but the reponse is better if you get the rom and the emulator.
- A free flight simulator. This is easier to use than the
veritech flight simulator and has a lot of demos of aerial maneuvers.
- Macross addon for YSFlight
by M812 - unzip and move
the User folder to the YSFlight directory. Move
the contents of the aircraft folder to YSFLIGHT\aircraft. The
Macross aircraft are listed under VF-xx. Enjoy!
- Veritech Ace 2
- a neat flash game! Controls are a bit difficult though...
