People told me about the Schwarzesmarken stuff I'm supposed to know from the novel to make the anime make more sense. Then, funnily enough, I read the VN almost 10 years later and still relied on the info from /a/ threads for the backstory!
MLA anime is mostly memorable because of speedrunning jokes. I was kind of disappointed they didn't cram in the entire story into 24 episodes.

I don't understand why they didn't just keep making Faraway Dawn games. I just beat 1 on normal and got the good muvluv game I always wanted, and I never would have known about it if anon didn't mention it. I can't find any interest about this online and it's really damn good. You guys if you haven't played should check it out -if you press F1 in-game it'll spit out an instruction manual in plain text that you can paste into google translate, then you're good to go. It's genius, they already had all the assets and nailed the mechanics, it must've been made by just a couple people for pocket change, so what happened?
Anyways, advice for new players: play on easy for a challenge, very easy for normal difficulty. A unit's health is also number of soldiers, so a unit at half health does half damage -that also goes for the BETA, and you can leave BETA barely alive to use as shields against Laser Class. Your TSFs have melee defense that varies by craft, terrain, rank, pilot, and facing direction. And make sure to turn on the laser map with ctrl+L

Unfortunately, all modern VNs are either gachas or hybrid VNRPGs like Persona.

>>22540507
You know what's funny? GunParade March, which is basically an unrecognized twin of muvluv, is also a VNRPG a la Persona but focused on Unlimited-like military slice of life along some combat missions here and there. All ML had to do was "borrow" that template for future releases rather than stay as a pure VN, what with P3's success and the established popularity Alternative had back then. Could have gone that route for TDA with Faraway Dawn gameplay.

>>22544566
muv luv actually shares so many elements with gunparade march that nips have been saying Kouki ripped it off for like literally 20 years, with him denying it every time.
I used to believe him, but after playing the game for myself and seeing muv luv shit itself after the main trilogy again and again, I'm pretty certain he did do it but won't admit it because of his pride. Not like it would be a big deal. It's so bad that he will respond and get into arguments with complete rando no-name twitter users that don't even give a shit about muvluv, because the idea that it's a ripoff is so widespread over there that random people will just say it because they heard it elsewhere.

No. Muv Luv is slowly coasting into the grave. When the Gacha dies, the IP will be buried. This thread is part of the long mourning process.
>>
>>22550212
the kiminozo all ages kickstarter got funded because they attached retarded shit like "eat dinner with kouki" and "we will put your name somewhere into the actual game? where? no idea" to it
Then Tororo said they can only develop one game at a time so for the next year+ they're just gonna develop a port of an over 20 year old game
>>
>>22550324
>kiminozo all ages
For whomst?
Well, I do like KGNE quite a lot, more than muv luv in some ways. But it's such a horny story, you can't really separate sex scenes from it. So many iconic scenes are 18+. I was laughing for 1.5 minutes when Daikuuji accidentally snowballs you and then it busy cuts to the credits with the bad end theme playing.

>>22550212
realistically we can hope they translate the remaining material, though right after they could put the ip on ice for the foreseeable future.
ideally it just gets sold to someone competent at a nice discount.

First time poster here because a friend lent me his anime-streaming account and suggested I watch Muv-luv alternative total eclipse and I liked it, not gonna lie, I was surprised by the nudity and fanservice even If even if it was a little, never cared about ecchi but the only mecha I watched was 3 Gundams (Wing, Zeta and Seed) and read Mazinger Z so I was caught off guard. The story interested me and It's a pity that there wasn't another season, the whole conspiracy of this called "God" and FLR conspiration caught my attention, making me quickly binge the last episodes quickly.
>>
>>22550625
Also I know about the games, I plan to buy next sale, I like VN games
>>
>>22550625
I'd tell you to read the VNs but the franchise has shit itself so much in the last 10 years that all the shit you found interesting remains unresolved to this day
>>
>>22550625
I think what they did with the espers is kind of like a reimagining of Four from zeta or just newtypes in general. Maybe they even did it better in muv luv, because the way zeta retells Four's story three times (Four, Four after they made her retarded and then Rosamia) is kind of like shamelessly trying to get enough content for 50 episodes. There's no similarities with Wing that I could remember and in SEED Kira becomes this savior, much like the protagonist in the original visual novel is a savior that the world was longing for (they have the same voice actor, actually).
I do like Total Eclipse anime, it's pretty fun and it's like the swan song of the lewd because I think they retired ecchi after that. At least the visual novel of the same name, that continues the story, is more of a kiddy friendly flavor. It was my introduction to the franchise too, I watched it when it aired and it was full of QUALITY, but they fixed it on blue rays.

there was implied rape and I think the original illustrations by carnelian had nipple bumps in the suits, but it didn't have any actual nudity. I think technically the last thing with titties was strike frontier which didn't shut down until 2018. the alternative mango also ran until 2017 apparently and had nudity, but I don't know when the last chapter to show it was.

Just pirate the latest lore magazines and check the afterword pages to see literally Kouki write about "If these books sell well enough it will be the first step to getting things moving again"
https://exhentai.org/s/12ce9f25b1/2542863-18
They stopped working on the VNs at some point and never started back up. More specfically, Kouki and his co-writers are still writing scripts and getting them approved by Avex, but absolutely nobody is doing any fucking development work to turn them into visual novels. His co-writer started working on the Eurofront script like 2-3 years ago at this point because they were already fully finished with Resonative.

Hi. How's your Easter going, /m/uvluv?

I made a post on GameFAQs where I asked people if they want to see videos where I add random music to anime scenes, and I used my new video where I play the ending music from Point Break over the final scene from Perfect Blue as an example. I only got two replies, and they were both varying degrees of "No." So I guess I'm not going to do that any more.

>>22555397
I always thought it was more likely he ripped off All You Need is Kill during the 2004-2006 gap when he was trying to figure out how to explain all the timeline-hopping mechanics and continue Muv-Luv Unlimited (He even mentioned All You Need is Kill on his stream once)

Maybe he ripped off both.

Another update on my reread with my blind friends. Sorry for not posting in a while. By some miracle we've actually been pretty consistent in our get-togethers, so we've actually gotten pretty far into Alternative now.
I was actually really nervous about the coup arc, despite it having some of the most sound writing in the entire series. The most boisterous friend of the group has a famously short attention span, and I was sure he'd bring the mood down if the complicated political intrigue bored him. Surprisingly he ended up being pretty silent during the entire ordeal, except for when he expressed his hate for classrep whenever she'd push Takeru away. I do think he overall kind of didn't care much about the finer details though, so it seemed to me like he didn't enjoy the arc as much as I'd hoped. The others seemed pretty invested though. When Yuuhi was doing her whole self sacrifice speech, one of them even commented on the fact that her demeanor and voice actress made her seem like "a god, or deity" more than a human. This lead to them discussing the portrayal of nobility in fiction, which eventually concluded with them recognizing Yuuhi as one of the best portrayals of an emperor figure ever. Needless to say I was extatic that they were finally getting how great these characters can be.

At this point in the series my friends were raring to see some actual combat. And I was really nervous about the fact that the coup arc kinda blue balls you at that point. My boisterous friend hates the chimera ant arc in HXH for having "no real fights", so I was once again nervous he'd not enjoy himself. Once again it went well, but I don't think they liked it quite as much as I did on my first read. I was fanboying tsukuyomi a lot during the arc, and they weren't really feeling her a lot for example. Neither did they really bite into the whole alternate pre-ww2 japan mentality(yet, we do end up having some intense discourse about it later down the line).
The Kasumi reveal made the boys realize they REALLY like Kasumi as a character. "If she dies, I will literally ragequit" was said just after her waking Takeru up one morning.
The returning to the extraverse twist came completely out of left field for them. Every single one of them was really surprised when the layerhopping machine was introduced. Sadly I think the early parts of this arc was one of the worst recieved parts of the whole bunch. There is a shitload of voiced Takeru flashbacks that really fuck with the pacing. On my first 2 readthroughs this didnt bother me at all, as i basically just skimmed through them without listening to the VA on my own. On auto this felt like a pretty big issue, though. A sentiment that was echoed by my friends. It seemed like my friends were getting really impatient with the story here. They just wanted to get "on to the epic part". Thank god that this part is really heavy on the Yuuko exposition scenes. Excluding Meiya and Sumika she is easily their favorite character.
The XM3 mock battle arc had my friends raring to go again. They really wanted to finally see Takeru tearing it up in his TSF.

That's why they were laughing out loud when Takeru completely loses it as the Beta appear. They were fully expecting him to have become this crazy badass in battle at this point. The fact that we were stifling our laughter may be one of the downsides to groupreading like this, as I felt like it undermined the situation a little, but the gravitas came through all the while.
The chomp is by far my highlight of this little experiment. The discord channel was completely silent for the longest time since it's inception. We normally shoot in comments here and there, little "oohs" and "aahs" when something exciting happens, but in this scene it was as if the world had stopped. When the boys finally came to their senses they praised the shit out of the scene, and even managed to draw paralells to AOT. Our first point of major discourse comes when Takeru is getting "consoled" by Meiya after Marimo's death. Our boisterous friend threw a fit at Meiya for completely botchering the situation(which funnily completely mirrored Takeru's comments to her). And his comments were completely justified, as telling someone in a situation like that to just "suppress, and move past it" is a pretty dangerous thing. The discourse came of us telling him it was perfectly in character for pretty much anyone who'd grown up in the BETA-verse. And especially Meiya, who is pretty much the embodiment of the traditional Japanese(pre ww2) wartime mindset. He disagreed pretty heavily, and cited military history as being pretty "open emotionally" when it came to soldiers being affected by deaths. We ended up discussing this for about an hour, not really coming to a conclusion.
Cont some time later

Meiya being who she is is not necessarily historical in nature and is owed more to her background and "love nucleus" stuff.

>I was actually really nervous about the coup arc
If you're not a US citizen, the anti-Americanism of this arc won't bother you. ...Seriously, as far as I can tell, the Sagiri mutiny only infuriates the Yankees, because Washington is presented in a bad way there.

>Yuuhi as one of the best portrayals of an emperor figure ever.
Yeah, it’s no wonder that “For the Crown and the Kingdom!” sounds more inspiring than “For democracy!” After all, the idea of “Noblesse Obliges” is backed by thousands of years of human history, and republicanism is just an anomaly in the development of civilization.

Kasumi, by the way, is Russian - are they not going to “cancel” her because of Ukraine?

>>22561510
>who is pretty much the embodiment of the traditional Japanese(pre ww2) wartime mindset
It’s more likely just a rejection of any other point of view, with the exception of your own. It is also aggravated by a disdainful attitude towards foreign culture as “barbaric”...

BRUH WTF Who is this story even for?! For a second I thought there was a sick twist coming, I was so expecting Takeru to bust in and save the day or to get something going with the Tsukuyomi in the last part but then the brainwashing came from nowhere and all to make them get against him? And then the apologies. jfc man just write what you want worst thing is the lewds went sooo hard too.

The writer has a vision in their head only they can see, and they'll keep banging their head against a brick wall to realize it until they give up and try yet again. At this point all you can do is let their autism drive then to write another million words that goes nowhere and then stops before anything good happens. The English Muv Luv fanfic sphere is a barren wasteland with no great standout works that I know of, not that unlike the English Muv Luv fandom as a whole. Japan gets Wei Luxin writing fanfics for them, what do we get?
>>
>>22565611
That's the thing, stuff would have gone down HARD if Takeru did literally anything except mindwash both Tsukuyomi to be his mortal enemies for reasons. Between the background yuri and nice jokes here and there I had hope and the lewds hit hard since no one expects the cast getting SA'ed but I was so ready for Takeru to take that bitch up on the offer, that fight was peak blueballing to end like that. I can't see how this can go on, Takeru is literally bleeding away now. I'd go and comment something but the autist takes everything badly. Even if it's NTR, which it is no matter what excuses the author puts up, just get to a fucking ending for once. I don't even mind another million words if they lead somewhere.

I want to learn Japanese to read untranslated VNs, does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about this?

best bet would be to find any place that does classes in Jap but if you don't wanna try doing self study that's my best guess

don't stick around the DJT thread, it's filled to the brim with people that just grind anki for literal decades and jerk each other off about knowing ancient kanji that haven't been in use for 300 years, and worship e-celebs. Then they cry about not knowing the language after all the time they have invested. Get their resource links and never look back

after that pickup a grammar textbook and start doing anki flashcards on a japanese core 2k deck daily

There are glimpses of something more in that dude's work, and you gotta admire the drive to write a million words two or three times over in search of that unattainable perfect vision. He's like the Mike Oldfield of Muv Luv fanfic writers, except it ain't Tubular Bells he's making.
>>
>>22564748
It's for babymaking sex with the BETA
>>
>>22566924
I just want the guy to stick to something, whatever these 'visions' or 'glimpses' are. No, he ain't making Tubular Bells or anything remotely close in quality but it fucking blows that whenever there's a decent chapter and people whine about it he steps back and apologizes. I honestly don't see anything to admire there, would rather him trust in this vision and just go off the deep end like the story clearly hints at all the time but never delivers on. Again, I'm just seething like a fag that doesn't wanna move on from this franchise just yet.

Read Tae Kim's guide, then go through all the kanji on kanjidamage, then read tae kim's guide again, that's what worked for me. Then I started to manually add any new kanji I encounter to a separate deck because kanjidamage only has around 1750. But you'll have a framework to do it if you learn all the building blocks from KD.

still waiting to hear about their last gacha attempt at making money
if it was enough of a success pfff maybe we will get something?
>>
So no April fools joke this year from their official page?

Muv Luv definitely peaked in 2013/14 when TE VN and Chronicles came out. Schwarzesmarken was the last decent thing. Immortals wasted all their money and the 2021/22 anime adaptation was half-assed.

If they had put money on a new VN sequel it would have worked. But they are afraid of VN piracy so gacha is the main source of income for most VN companies.

Back in 2013, I was willing and paid 10000 jpy each for many of the rare Volks figures.
>>
>>22570413
I meant Project Mikhail wasted all their money. Basically the Tokyo 2020 olympics for them.
>>
>>22569010
When the gacha failed they said in a livestream development on the VNs has stopped in all aspects other than Kouki writing random shit because they need to focus on relaunching the gacha. The Anchor CEO also got fired and replaced.
When the gacha relaunched there was an online stockholder meeting at Avex where Avex said the future of new muv luv games depends on how well the gacha sells. Kouki then tweeted about this and told everyone to support the game if they want the VNs to come out
After the Kiminozo kickstarter got funded Tororo said that with Anchor in its current state, they can only develop one game at a time, and that the Kiminozo port would now occupy this slot for a year or so.

They're literally not doing anything at all, that's why there are zero new trailers or images. The gacha sales are only okay if the plan was to make a low budget kusoge for the fans and nobody else, but I very much doubt that since the company running is turns out to be in massive financial trouble.
>>
>>22570970
So basically, they are not making enough money to release anything new like Resonative and Integrate, but just profit enough to keep this franchise going by slowly releasing translations, porting old games, and doing the bare minimum every year.

Hello there. Which PS1 menu screen art are you supposed to be?
>>
>>22571022
Now ask yourself what happens when they run out of things to port (assuming Avex doesn't shut them down before that)
they don't even have a sister company releasing short low budget VNs or anything. They've pretty much done fucking nothing for 8 years straight
>>
>>22571118
There's a fair backlog. SM1 and 2 are untouched, as is War Ensemble, Last Divers, they could even spin Owarinaki as an entry if they get desperate.

Leymei drew really good TSFs, this Phantom looks amazing. Poor bugger died too young, they should have been able to make a full manga series like Asuza Maxima did with the Alt Manga. It would have looked amazing.

Things I've done in the time since I bought a PS5 solely to play Stellar Blade:

- Wrote a Stellar Blade fanfic, which opens up with a quote rambling about Metroid and Muv-Luv
- Added a Stellar Blade-inspired alternate title to one of the chapters in "Tetris Maintenance," a Mai Otome fanfic with certain familiar stylistic choices
- Added some notes about Stellar Blade's seamless blending of design styles to "Toasted Mayonnaise," a Mai Otome fanfic that's actually a porno parody of Muv-Luv

I imagine there must be a version of the cadet suit where you could fully see the nipples that existed at some stage in development before age thought "no this is too much even for eroge" and dialed it back.
