Title: Lion | Artist: May’n, Megumi Nakajima | Show: Macross Frontier
Description: Lion is the second opening of Macross Frontier, which is the 25th anniversary edition of the Macross franchise. Frontier is a retreading of the original show in an affectionate way. It plays the tropes straight and sets up the same conflicts that made the first show work so well.
All while having cool planes.
Why You Picked it: I didn’t like Lion terribly much when I first was graced with its presence around episode 19. Like so many though, it’s grown on me with time. The tone fits better with the show’s direction at the time compared to the previous opening.
