I watched it two night ago, and was pleasantly surprised by the outright changes in the storyline. But more noticeable was, IMHO, the greater amount of development on Sheryl’s part, thus I have come to like her much as Sachiko Ogasawara or Asuka Langley Soryu.

Hmmm… about her credit card:

*A holographic stage dress custom-built by Miyake and LAI: 5000 credits
* Lunch at the Frontier Terra: 300 credits
* A special rescue mission by the SMS private military contractor, with a Macross Quarter, four Messiah squadrons, and optional special offensive weaponry: 120,000,000 credits
* Seeing even half of your Galaxy fanbase alive as they come to see refuge on Frontier: priceless.

There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’sIsland Premium Card from Vega. :)

YES. I just caught up with Tiger and Bunny, and you should do these entries, in character, FOR EVERY EPISODE OF THE SHOW. If I don’t have a life, why should you?! Great entry, but it needs more obvious coporate whoring. And superhero comic style purple prose!

“The crazed vigilante Lunatic struck at me with blazing crossbow bolts of gushing flames! Shu shu, Zupan! Its at times like those I’m glad I have the refreshing flavour of Pepsi Next! Goes down smooth with every drop! The preferred drink of justice lovers everywhere! Cools down 3rd degree burns like nothing else!

“Ahem. Thanks to the teachings of my Shishou-Sensei Kotetsu Tora-sama-senpai-kun-chan, I both stood up for my friend, and found conviction in my own admittedly shitty powers. Speaking of Tora-sama-dono, did you know his Figuarts action figures are coming in this January?! Low low cost, maximum posability, form meets function! Order now and recieve a 15% discount!

“So in closing, my friendly followers of blazing firey righteous justice? Stand by your convictions and your friends, and one day they may too forgive you for your ineffectiual wangsting, and your blame in their decades long incarceration. Just like me! But…WHAT IS JUSTICE? WHAT IS EVL? IS MINE JUSTICE BUT ANOTHER MAN’S SORROWFUL WRONGDOING? How will I find the truth? Click on the link and donate some of your hard earned Sternbills to continue my blog of evil smiting, and help me find out!”

Sorry I just copied your concept almost to the letter, but I had to get that idea out of my system. I think the show should really play up the otaku weaboo angle on Origami Cyclone, its better than watching him emo out for an entire episode. I hope they alternate the blatant eycatcher adverts too. I want to see Rock Bison advertising Suntory Whiskey!
