To be fair, Ranka Lee seemed to have a nice fan base. Also the fact that she said "Nyan" added to her appeal even though she is...
Where's Henson when you need him?
To be perfectly honest, I didn't have that much of a problem with Ranka at first. Yeah, she had a lot of growing up to do...so did Min May, but at least she was more realistically stressed with the fame. And maybe the situation between Ranka and Alto was complicated by, and this is a big point here, the fact that her older brother was his superior officer.
When Sheryl was acting over the top diva, and Alto saved Ranka's life, all signs were pointing to that Ranka would've been the good option...the "happy" ending. That is, until, she deserted her own kind. She betrayed the people who came to love her talents. She shoved the bitchy pop culture phenomenon out of the spot light, got caught up in show business and fortune, then forgot that Alto was in a love triangle and got all upset that he went to Sheryl when Ranka was too busy getting all the attention she always wanted. "Oh boohoo, btw I've been harboring an adorable alien larvae of the same things that's been killing hundreds if not thousands of you, almost destroying the entire Macross itself. I'm gonna run away with it and my homo android brother in his purple transforming Valkyrie, kthxbai!" and she trololololol's off into the vaccuum of space with not one fuck to give. She was a selfish idiot, held hostage by conspiracy cyborg Queen Vajra bitch, and almost got Macross wiped out AGAIN by bringing them to the Vajra hivemind.
...well...that part may have been out of her comprehension and control, BUT STILL. FUCK Ranka Lee, Alto should've gone for Sheryl, but he probably soared right past both of them and went for the pilot of Mini-Macross instead. (the really gay dude with the fro that took to piloting Quarter way too seriously.)
