The outline of Episode 05
“Dancing in the Moonlight”
The aerial chivalric order handle Vars well with the power of the legendary “Singer of the wind”. Their power is overwhelming, and they made two planets surrender in a moment. Freyja is suspected as a spy but she tries to be more cheerful and brave than usual. But it’s obvious that she pushes herself hard…
Part1 The time line of Macross Delta becomes clear.
In this story, the time line and the view of the world become clear.
It’s the year of 2067 in Macross Delta.
The colonization plan into space by the earthlings has begun from the first Macross series “The Super Dimension Fortress Macross” and the year is 2012.
In the previous series Macross Frontier, human beings found a planet that they can live on and their place of residence had changed from the spaceships to the planets.
In the beginning of this episode, some problems seem to come up.
For example, in Macross Frontier, there were indigenous people called the Vajra on a planet that the earthlings had found. There were some planets like that.
Some indigenous people like the Windermere from Windermere Kingdom think that the earthlings intend to invade their own planet. So the Windermere declared war against the new integrated army to resist the earthlings.
This spectacular story had started from the invasion of the earthlings by the Zentradi before the colonization plan to the planet. Now, after 55 years, the position of the earthlings have been reversed.
Now I live in Japan. I think this can be adopted to the real world; the wars outbroke in the past or present issues occurred in the world now.
Part2 Freyja gets depressed.
Freyja got to know that her hometown Windermere Kingdom had declared war against the new integrated army at her debut concert as a member of WALKÜRE.
Mikumo tells Freyja that some people doubt that she is a spy from the Windermere Kingdom. How admirable she is to try to be cheerful even though she is broadcasted on a TV show and surrounded by media people.
She is totally caught in the dilemma of the two countries, although she left secretely from Windermere Kingdom to be a member of WALKÜRE. My heart twinges that how Freyja behaves.
Part3 Dating in a cockpit
In the Macross series, it’s regular to have scenes such as dating in a cockpit. In this episode, you can see the dating scene.
Hayate can’t bear to see Freyja getting depressed and invites her to fly with Valkyrie. When he turns the music on, “Run ga Pikatto Hikattara/ルンがピカッと光ったら” is being played. Then, the color of a heart-shaped hair accessory on Freyja’s hair changes from blue to red, and she starts to sing with a big smile.
In this scene, Freyja and Hayate decide something. Freyja decides to sing as a member of WALKÜRE, and Hayate decides to fight as a member of the delta platoon to put an end to the war.
It was an important scene because the characters chose their own identities.
By the way, in this episode, the grandparents of Mirage are revealed. The grandfather is Maximilian Jenius, and the grandmother is Milia Fallyna Jenius. They were in the Super Dimension Fortress Macross and Macross 7, and they were both genius pilots. They are the first married couple in the history of an earthling and the Zentradi.
You must know that Macros Delta is inheriting Macross history. I’m looking forward to seeing how this fact will connect to the story.
Highlights of the songs
Part 1 Which song is the main song in this episode?
There is only one song “Run ga Pikatto Hikattara/ルンがピカッと光ったら” in this episode.
This is a song Freyja sings when she dates Hayate, and the song becomes a trigger for her to decide to continue to sing.
The credit of the song is WALKÜRE, but this can be a song for Freyja. Freyja sings in a moonlight, and Hayate dances the ‘Immelman Dance/インメルマンダンス”” with Valkyrie.
“Run ga Pikatto Hikattara/ルンがピカッと光ったら” is played as an ED song, so it’s almost a music clip episode.
Part 2 A music clip of WALKÜRE is presented.
A music clip of an OP theme song “Love for once” is uploaded on YouTube.
It’s not a music clip with animations, but with the voice actors of WALKÜRE. Instead of Mikumo, voice actors for each characters are really singing the song. JUNNA is in charge of Mikumo’s part as a singer, and she is 15 years old and is the youngest singer in the Macross series. This time, JUNNA in motion will be lifted.
“Love for once” is separated into five parts for the WALKÜRE members. I’m surprised at JUNNA’s singing voice.
Freyja has decided to continue to sing even though she is caught up in a war with her hometown. Hayate has decided to fight to put an end to the war.
Can we see Valkyrie fighting in space in the next episode?
Let’s see how episode 06 “Decision Overload” will be!
