Iconic Scene: GET READY FOR A SURPRISE!
Quotable Quotes: "How come I have to get bossed around by some old lady who's sitting somewhere nice and safe?"
Best Character: Misa, for coming up with this crazy plan. And for putting up with Hikaru's crap.
Best Death: Poor Zeril, never saw that Macross fist a-coming.
I think what struck me the most in this episode was something that I loved through all the early episodes of Macross, i.e. How the crew had to come up with all-sorts of ad-hoc plans to deal with all the situations they found themselves in. They didn't have to come up with an explanation for the bolting on of the Daedalus and Prometheus, for example. Those could have just been part of the Macross's structure.
