Honestly, I wouldn't have minded the love triangle going unresolved were it not for the fact they put so much of the show into fleshing THAT out.
The rest of the story felt like it got short-changed for the triangle, so to then have them not resolve that just...

This series had some of the most impressive dogfights i've ever seen in anime, hardly what you'd call boring shit :?

I hope that's what they're going for. If the interview that turned up from Kawamori is any indication, this could get interesting (allegedly, his claim for the triangle going unresolved was the fact he didn't like the idea of Alto having to pick one or the other, as opposed to the idea that maybe he got written into a corner.)

This has resulted in some fan communities claiming it's a polygamy ending.

I REALLY hope the writers make a call in the movie. After how much of the series went into fleshing out that triangle, I don't care who gets picked so long as someone does. Hell, even Tenchi had to choose eventually.

Macross Zero was good, but it was weird, they introduced a bunch of mystical crap. Like singing = making rocks float? :/

Definitely liked this anime's ending [fight-wise]

I'm for the argument that the love triangle was definitely an unnecessary waste of time. Think Tenchi Muyo...

Ultimately, I guess the only way Sheryl will get any is in the C75 doujins I'm digging ^_^

Still, great music, great fighting, high quality animation, and a solid ending, good recommendation from me

The reason why the unsolved love triangle is because Alto declared both Sheryl and Ranka as his wings. It didn't bother me much since Macross 7 had a somewhat similar unsolved love triangle.

Yeah,every Macross series has a triangle.In original Macross and Macross Frontier the love triangle were 2 women and 1 man while the opposite happened in Macross Plus and Macross Zero.Can't talk about Macross 7 as I haven't watched it though.Is it worth the time??

And without the love triangle,there's no spice in Macross series... XD

If you're a big fan of the franchise then yes, Macross 7 is definitely worth the watch.
