Why Noto Mamiko? Now i will have to watch it after all the convicing not to do it before vn is translated in my head. Though i'd rather care more about Yui than Inia.
Also awesome to see Izumi, Mitsuki, Yuuko and Kasumi having a role here, didn't even know they appeared.

I've been planning to play the VN's (Extra, Unlimited and Alternative) for ages. I guess it's time to get started.

I'm still disappointed its not an adaption of the REAL Muv Luv Alternative, but I guess it would be tough to get the 50 episodes all at once it would take to faithfully adapt it... plus you'd need to adapt Muv Luv Extra and and Unlimited beforehand, as well.

*facepalm* Rather than paying attention to the boobs, some of you obviously have NOT looked at the links for the character designs as well as the mecha designs.

But damn the mecha designs look killer! And I dig Noto, Sugita, and Nabatame.

Forgot to post this in the previous thread, but someone uploaded clips of TE 3dcg tests from age's New Year livestream on Youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISxrmQC4jLg

And here's hoping they get the composers for Muv-Luv Alternative on board again (or maybe reuse the VN soundtrack-like what you can hear in the video). Hijiri Anze + Hikaru Nanase + JAM Project = my dream team.

OP and ED's will practically be done by either Masami Okui (JAM Project member who sang the TE VN prologue's OP - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m35bTVBe0yI), Minami Kuribayashi (age's favorite singer) or Aki Misato, though the full JAM Project doing either one would be great.

And for those not familiar with ixtl, it's credited along with age in the latter's recent releases (MLA Chronicles 01+02+03 and the 2011 Kimi ga Ita Kisetsu remake). Seems to be a production committee with age as one of the major partners.

Just curious, this summer Noto has already two animes to works here. Does this mean this year she's going to busy than last year?

Looks like Gundam and Code Geass may have competition on mecha designs (even though I love them). I know I'm speaking blasphemy, but I'm bold enough to in the anime world Lol. ^^

As a long-time fan of the Muv-Luv franchise it's nice to see its mech designs getting long-deserved recognition out in the mainstream.

Do take note however that this franchise is as "real-robot-genre" as they get, with the need for combined-arms military tactics and the mechs being a stand-in for fighter aircraft (the latter can't operate in-universe else they'd get instantly shot down by lasers as soon as they get over the horizon). Non-Japanese TSFs even have names corresponding to real-life fighters (F-15, F-22, Su-37 etc).

As a bonus, look at the jump units attached to the hips of non-Japan mechs; they look like the corresponding real-life aircraft.

That's actually for MLA Chronicles 03, not for the TE anime proper.
Do take note that a heroine from a game made by a sister company of age (Ritsuko Oogami from Owarinaki Natsu, Towa Naru Shirabe) will be appearing, confirming that the latter game takes place in the Beta'd world.

Spoilers for MLA ending and possibly that of TE, too:

This title is really familiar...

adapted from VN, right?
Why are you watching the S2 of the anime that you loathe?
¬‿¬ And those guys who think they are elite because they watched (earlier or) more anime than others.

Inagaki's worked on other titles as well. Stuff like key animation for Dai Guard, Dendoh, Gad Guard, Hellsing, ROD The TV, Kiddy Grade, and the Witchblade OP, storyboard for Valkyria Chronicles, Seto no Hayanome, and Togainu no Chi, and assistant animation director on Yukikaze for example.

At least we know he has experience with mecha series.

The parent story, Muv-Luv Alternative, is a VN. Total Eclipse (this one) started out as a light novel sidestory (mostly out-of-print, and with the story still unfinished, too)

/me reads the synopsis:

Thus in 2001, elite pilots around the world start to gather at a UN base in Alaska named Yukon to participate in the Prominence Project. This project is a multinational...

but but but....




Anyways, which means, Canada becomes a part of Alaska, or at least Yukon becomes a part.

As for the anime,

Ono Daisuke +1
Noto Mamiko +1
Nakahara Mai +1
Sugita Tomozaku +1

4 reasons for me to give this anime a try and give Yukon to Alaska (USA) in the process.

Anime based on Adult PC game makes me doesn't want to watch it, but the story might be interesting when they try to make it with out "adult" part. Besides, OnoD voicing this main character seems interesting.

But... please don't make it like Fortune Arterial (another Adult PC game based anime with OnoD).

You should look at Eroges as more than sex romps, try checking the summaries of story-focused Visual Novels on VNDB like the actual Muv-Luv Alternative. Besides, Total Eclipse isn't a Visual Novel (yet) and it's focused on the mecha with some romance rather than focusing all on moe romcom stuff.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Yes I did hear we should check the mecha designs.

But again, them boobs. It look like it came straight out of an awesome h-manga or eroge built for fapping (more than anything else). I know not all eroge have random sex scenes (ever17 eff yea) but damn. Them boobs.

So is this a standalone anime that can be watched or should we need prior knowledge of whatever VN material and spinoffs this is based on? This kinda sounds like Majikoi in the sense that you needed to have read the VN to get what was going on(I only read the manga though).
If it is, it's a must watch for me. If no...then I'll reconsider watching it but will still watch even so .

Well Alternative was fantastic so I'm looking forward to more of the series. My expectations aren't very high though... :(

Hopefully the show proves me wrong and we get to see the rest of MuvLuv animated eventually.

Here's hoping, indeed!

Also, wasn't Inia's surname supposed to be Sestina, (more properly, Šestina, pronounced "Shestina") not Jestina? It's the official romanization from âge, and the katakana from TE's official site (www.total-eclipse.jp/te/character04.html) read イーニァ・シェスチナ, not イーニァ・ジェスチナ.

Spoilers for MLA and Inia's backstory:

Pretty good designs there for the mecha and characters (tits aside, lol).
I don't know if the story sounds interesting or not, though.

I absolutely love the cast for this show! ^^=
However-

That director... *face-palm* Godammit...

Good news I suppose. If they can make this anywhere near as amazing as Muv Luv Alternative I will be happy.

As for you.

you have obviously not read Alternative, which I expect this to be like.

If you had read it you would know that it starts off with a few mock battles. But then they are sent out into the actual fights. Crazy stuff happens. I dont want to spoil anything so I wont say much more.

But if it is anything like Alternative, which I pray it is, then there will be a lot more to it than that.
