Picking up from where the previous movie left off, Ranka's star career flourishes while Sheryl's health rapidly deteriorates after collapsing during a live performance. At the same time, separate factions are maneuvering behind the scenes seeking to control the Vajra horde by utilizing the singing abilities of the two songstresses. As the entire Macross Frontier fleet begins to wage the final war on the Vajra, Alto finally makes a choice between Ranka and Sheryl.

This second Macross Frontier film isn't much different from The False Diva where events from the Frontier TV series are compressed and rushed. The movie does implement some major changes from the TV anime's second half with how the plot develops and it does actually feature a decision from Alto over who he loves between Ranka and Sheryl, though the compressed nature of the movie prevented me from actually caring much about this. The high quality presentation from the first movie is retained here and still features Yoko Kanno's musical composure which features a mix of new songs used for the movie and some reused from the TV series. If you cared enough for the first Frontier movie, then this may be worth a look just to provide one with a proper conclusion to the movie's take on the TV series. However like the first movie, I still would strongly recommend the Frontier TV series over the two movies.
