Regarding Frontier - there was one rumor why Ranka was so overhyped. Apparently she reminded Kawamori-san of his granddaughter thaswhy she was pushed in spotlight so much.

I doubt it, to be honest.

Ranka's in-series hype never felt excessive to me. She was meant to be an up-and-coming new idol who got her big break during the war. In a very real sense, she was meant to be Minmay for a new generation.

(This, unfortunately, became somewhat literal in that Megumi Nakajima took a hiatus from her singing career because she felt she was more associated with her role as Ranka Lee than her own merits as a singer... a problem Minmay's voice actress Mari Iijima also grappled with in her post-Macross music career.)
