The outline of Episode 04
“A Shocking Debut Show”
It’s decided that Freyja is going to make her debut as a member of WALKÜRE at the “Vaccine Concert” on Planet Randall. Freyja feels agitated and nervous. Mikumo asks Freyja “How do you feel when you sing?” and Freyja―
Highlights of the story
Part1 Freyja and Hayate’s debut -If you try, you can fly!-
This time, WALKÜRE held a concert on Planet Randall to suppress the Vars Syndrome.
It’s an amazing idea about this anime to hold a vaccine concert instead of providing vaccination.
The voices of the members in WALKÜRE generate “fold waves” and they become vaccines to restrain the Vars Syndrome.
“Fold waves” are waves that affect persons over space. In the former Macross series Frontier, Ranka’s voice also generates the fold waves.
Hayate and Mirage fly with Valkyrie to liven up the stage of WALKÜRE.
It seems like Hayate has more courage than Freyja as they both had a debut stage in a different way. Freyja seems like she is nervous and anxious.
Part 2 The stroy inherits Macross -the scenes that makes you feel the history of Macross-
There is a scene where Freyja practices the song that she sings on a stage with a portable music player in the first half. The scene impresses the viewers because Macross Delta inherits Macross history.
Freyja got this portable music player from an earthling when she was in her hometown, Windermere Kingdom. She listened to the songs in the player and came to love the songs. The songs she listened were those from former Macross series.
Lynn Minmay, Fire Bomber, Sheryl Nome, Ranka Lee, and WALKÜRE.
“Macross Delta” deals with stories about events that occurred on several planets, but not about fights in outer space so that I couldn’t really feel the atmosphere of Macross.
But looking at the names of the former singers of the Macross series, you would think this is a story with the flow of the former Macross series.
I personally think songs are the main characters in the Macross series so I was so excited with this scene.
Part 3 The enemy is revealed. -Freyja is so shocked!?-
The enemy who attacked during WALKÜRE’s the concert.
This time, the enemy is finally revealed.
The enemy is the Aerial Knights from Freyja’s hometown, Windermere Kingdom. They declare war against the new government.
Freyja says “His Highness, Prince Roid.” She looks like she is agitated, so I’m worried about Freyja.
Moreover, the singing voice when the Vars Syndrome occurred has been revealed too. The singing voice is the one of Heinz Nehrich Windermere alias Heinz II from Windermere Kingdom. The trigger of the Vars Syndrome seems like the singing voice of Heinz II.
Heinz II is a pretty boy and weak-looking. He consumes so much energy with singing that he falls over after he sings.
I’m looking forward to the story development about the young people who will be embroiled into war.
Highlights of the songs
Part1 -A concert scene of WALKÜRE-
One of the songs highlights is the concert scene of WALKÜRE.
The scene how they made their entrance is awesome. They jump onto the stage from an airplane.
As I expected, the first song is “Koi!Halation The War/恋！ハレイションTHE WAR”. They make their entrance with their own signature phrases.
Another song they sing at the concert is “Uncertainty☆COSMIC MOVEMENT”. The song was in the practice scene of the previous story. They dance with a cute dance with a pop melody.
Part 2 -The masterpiece “Our battlefield”-
In the previous story, Freyja sung “Our battlefield” when Hayate was in a pinch. The song appears in this story too, during the concert, so it could be the main character of Episode 4.
The new integrated military has been infected with the Vars Syndrome by the singing voice of Heinz II. Delta platoon and WALKÜRE have to fight against a friendly army.
In this story, Mikumo starts to sing a capella “Our battlefield” and tries to restrain the Vars Syndrome. Freyja who performs well when it counts starts to sing together and “Our battlefield” is performed by Mikumo and Freyja. It was moving. “Our battle field” is a serious song and has a strong message compared to “Uncertainty☆COSMIC MOVEMENT”. I think it’s an efficient song in a touching scene.
Well, muzik_record (docile) myself has listed up the new things that I think “It’s a mystery.”
*What’s the meaning of the words of Mikumo when she talked to the night sky naked on the mountain before the concert?
*It’s such a mystery that even the leader of WALKÜRE Kaname doesn’t know where Mikumo lives. I’m interested in the mysterious character Mikumo.
*Is the average life span of Windermere really 30!?
I was surprised with the settings. The Windermere have strong physical abilities, and despite their physical abilities, their average life span is short. Freyja is now 14 years old and ithat means she has come to half of her life. If she continues to sing so actively, will Freyja’s life span become even shorter?
*Who is the earthling who gave Freyja the portable music player in Windermere Kingdom?
Macross Delta’ story plays at a time where human beings have found planets so it seems like the time has passed a lot from “Macross Frontier”. Maybe it’s an already known character because the earthling had a music player with a song by Lynn Minmay.
The next story is “Dancing in the Moonlight”. I can’t imagine the story only by the given title, but I’m worried about Freyja anyway!
