Macross Frontier: Towards the Grand Finale

Currently fihished: Episode 21

I usually put Mecha anime into "other" sub category when I rate animes because I don't care much about them. Macross Frontier, however, would be rated in the "drama" category because that is really what its focus is at.

The whole series so far have been building up towards a grand finale that finally start to reveal itself. In the process, a surprise tragedy just poped out of nowhere. That, would earn bonus rating from me. (For those who don't know that part of me yet, you should read this post, and this post)

Several days ago, I just commented on the anime most likely to be the best comedy of 2008. Now I think Macross Frontier is the anime most likely to be the best drama or even the best anime of 2008. Yes, it's that good. If you haven't started watching it yet, start now. No anime fan should miss out on a great series like this.

New Rating (out of 5): 4.9 (Net gain: +0.9) ~ Perfect So Far

I've always been biased against mecha animes. I think it came from me not liking any of the Gundam series. When I rate animes, there is a neutral rating, which is the starting point where I add or substract as the series go. Since I don't like mecha anime, it usually has a lower neutral rating than other animes.

Having explained that, now you should understand the significance of the rating I just gave to this anime.
