While Frontier dominated the rankings, it failed to take the #1 for the mecha poll. As for the songs poll, let’s just say that “Do You Remember Love?” is the most iconic song of the franchise, and “Lion” would just have to settle for second place to such a legendary song. But since this is Macross we’re talking about, why wasn’t there a “Best Love Triangle” poll?
