Thanks to Professor Yuuko Kouzuki's technology and Kasumi Yashiro's psychic powers, Cadet Takeru Shirogane travels back to his original world. With no time to lose, Takeru aims to enlist Yuuko's help in his world to complete the Alternative IV project—the last hope humanity has against the BETA, an alien species invading the planet. As the anti-BETA project nears completion, Takeru and other cadets graduate from the Yokohama pilot training academy.

However, during a test of the new operating system for the Tactical Surface Fighters—the giant combat suits used by humanity against their adversary—the BETA ambush Takeru and his team. Barely escaping with his life, Takeru is left traumatized after witnessing the cruel death of one of his close friends.

Losing his will to fight, Takeru flees back to the other world, where he experiences a similar tragedy. According to Yuuko's theory, people from parallel universes are bound to suffer the same fate. As a result, Takeru must overcome his trauma if he wants to protect the ones he holds dear.

God, just when I thought they couldn't defile the corpse of Muv Luv any further...

Being a Muv Luv fan is just a continued painful existence. TDA 4 being delayed forever, every attempt at an anime adaptation ends up in failure, and the constant NFT shilling... I am just filled with complete envy at other franchises having a more successful lease on life, then I look back and see this looking like a dog needing to be put down.

I have a considerable huge tolerance for a lot of things. I didn't mind that they shoved in some OC only for her to be absolutely useless. I ...

Dear all VN readers - don't be swayed by false reviews in other side of the internet that claims that this is a blasphemy of an adaptation. Those saying that are just losers who quits the anime when it's in the lowest, just like people who quits the VN trilogy because of Extra. This adaptation is just as decent as it could be, and it's really good.

S2 has managed to bring some of the crucial part of the series to another level, despite setbacks that I can say forgivable due to the reality of the anime ground. Especially the most anticipated battle where half of ...

For anime adaptations based off of visual novels, Muv-Luv Alternative stands out as one of the better ones. This is no train-wreck adaptation like Chaos;Head and Chaos;Child. The MLA anime is legitimately good, season 2 especially. I'd honestly put season 2 above the anime of Robotics;Notes and Higurashi DEEN.

Anyways, let's get into the pros. As was the case in season 1, the mecha animation was absolutely phenomenal. It's eye candy to look at. It's what makes the anime worth watching for anybody. Moreover, the pacing is pretty good for the most part. They didn't try to do a rush job and adapt the whole thing ...
