THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------


I smell jealousy. Cui hanging onto Yuuya? :) She also wants a honeymoon. Lololol. I liked her fighting skills.

Cui = jealous.
Inia = cute
Cryska = serious
Yui = tsundere

Lol'd @ this episode. Dat tsundere Yui. Also, interesting little ending there. I hope Cryska will be okay soon.

About how the twins are always together in flashback.

China girl always gets in the way between OnoD's character and Hime girl. China girl is satisfied with fighting against strong one, and into her own world. US is too strong for China girl, though. Dates with the twins, and solving older twin's worry.

Oh, so it was for her to teach him martial art. This time US guy is getting in the way and fighting.

Special ED? I think it was by Aki Misaki "Snow Maiden (スノウメヰデン)" by Aki Misato

New ED song is alright. Episode felt so odd, everyone acting like high schools and what not not knowing the feelings of love and jealously and what not. However loved the ending moments Leon/Yuuya throwing down and stuff in the bar and the fast escape.. Enjoyed that.

Yui is pretty hardcore, getting drunk off of orange juice haha.

Girls be getting all over Yuuya, that harem, I'm jealous!

I also really liked the ending song they used for this ep as well as that first 3 or so minutes of Cryska flashback.

Watch out for jealous Cui and that angry fist of hers if she catches you with a different girl, Yuuya has his work cut out for him lol.

Cui was pretty sweet in the episode. Damn, I would have liked it if she won but that's not going to happen. Cryska is obviously falling for Yuuya and realizing it (at the end she stared at the flowers and even said his name). Inia is WAY too obvious. Is it just me or does Yui's face looked kind of messed up when she's flustered or whatnot this episode? It seems like her face is too long.

But really lol at stalker Yui XD
Also loved the ending, they're used to it hahaha

Officially speaking Yuuya now has a harem.........I prefer that he be with Yui since they're a good match....as a 1st choice, 2nd choice Cryska X Yuuya co'z I see Cryska as an animal that needs taming. If Yuuya is to be with Inia, whoa, that'll make him a lolicon, Cui? NO WAY!

I wasn't expecting this show to have a harem but I'm not bothered by it. I think it is has gotten a lot better in terms of story. Now, only if they would have switched the OP at the halfway point like it other anime...

I just saw that the OP changes at episode 20!

Cui is definitely a funny character especially her way of dominating or at least trying to dominate Yuuya into a relationship.
She said she needs to listen to her husband but if she actually got into a marriage i wonder who the boss in the house will be.

There acting like the stealth of the f-22 Raptor is something new but what about it's predecessors the F-117 Nighthawk and the B-2 Spirit.
I know those two aren't fighter jets with the F-117 being a ground attack aircraft and the B-2 being a bomber but the where both stealth planes as well.
Also stealth might not appear on radar but that doesn't mean you can't see them in WW2 most fighter planes didn't have radar but they did manage to find there enemy's.
Besides Russia and China have stealth technology as well now and it's only a matter of time before European countries contain it well especially with the F-35 Lightning nearing completion.

Considering that murderous hordes of aliens are walking the earth, the pilots are a surprisingly relaxed bunch.

Yuuya is got the Tenchi Munyo touch, that's one hell of a harem he's putting together.

lol totally agree, As much as I enjoy the cute tsundere romance moments, The turn out of this anime would probably have been alot better if they just kept it as an undertone with the War and Mecha/gore conflict as the primary focus, since there was potential. But I guess its called Muv Luv for a reason =P

not bad episode.

my only complaint is the quality of the animations. seems like they rushed where we get odd looking faces from time to time especially for Yui, which is unfortunate during those cute blushing moments. the flashback also seem long and unecessary, as if we forgot the epic fight between Lt. Cui and Yuuya, followed by the love confession from Cui.

I don't mind the change from gorey aliens to harem build up, I just wish they put a little more effort in the animating those characters

Good episode, yuuya's harem is awsome.
Episode 5/5
The only thing that could make this anime better is more mecha action.

It was pretty good. I am honestly waiting for someone to die though, it feels as though the plot hasn't advanced much in the last few episodes.

How many episodes are left?

I like the harem scenes. I think this is part of some development. First, was Crsyka's feelings for Yuuya, second the bonding between Yuuya and Leon, and also Yui's feelings towards him.

I'm not probably sure but this could probably use this for build up for future episodes. I haven't played the VN but I read that muvluv extra was a harem dating game and ML Unlimited is a combination of both harem and mecha, and also the reality of war against the PTSD inducing BETA.

I prediction that there'll be serious tensions in later episodes.

"That's pretty impressive, getting drunk off orange juice"

This episode was so epic. It keeps getting better and better for me every week. Yui was so cute when she was jealous and Cui was adorable planning out the honeymoon. The world is being invaded by aliens, countless cities and ppl dying and Yuuya has the time to make a harem...., truly a man amongst men! I cant wait to see Argos take on the americans, it promises to be insanely epic!

Also we get some history on Yuuya's past in the next episode..., cant wait for some mecha action! I didnt think i could love this anime any more, and it keeps surprising me. Truly one of the best for last season and this one as well.

Episode Naxcore: 5 out of 5

Remember that this is not Kamchatka base where the front lines are always facing BETA attacks and now place is now at Yukon base , where BETA attacks are quite easy to spot and settle down.

Same , you summarize what i was gonna say...

Though for next episode I'd like to see more TSF battles , especially with the Yuuya against Scarlet Twins fight.

5 out of 5 for me as well , despite quite a number of graphical issues there.

Too bad this started promising gore and action and shit and it turned into a generic harem

I don't blame the guy.

Some people watch this for the mecha fight , BETA guro and action.

While some of us are seeing the relationship between Yui and Yuuya , Cryska , Cui and other harem girls.

Also to add up to that is the sketching is taken to it's worst , some parts of the show wasn't that detailed , had defects and etc.

Good build up episode. Loved the character development and interactions, and the tension between Leon and Yuuya was developed fairly well.

The girls' jealous faces were just priceless, and the harem is finally complete. Guess everything will be going to hell soon.

This was one the better episodes in a while. I loved the tender moment that Cryska and Yuuya shared in the park. I'm curious though if Yuuya doesn't recognize that Cryska is falling in love with him or if he is intentionally trying to redirect her focus so he can get closer to Yui. Either way they came dangerously close to making a real connection. Looking forward to what follows.

Speaking of Yui, "So you like carrots?" I guess she is new to small talk. Plus I should be relieved that shes finally trying to make her move. And the way that Yuuya grabbed her hand as they ran out of the bar! I was hoping that Yuuya had something more substantial than sword fighting lessons that he wanted to ask Yui, but an in's an in.

Cui was actually adorable this episode. Shes really starting to win me over, if only that her personality is 180 degrees from the other girls. However I highly doubt that she stands a serious shot with Yui. I would like to see him end up with Cryska to be honest. I think he would be good for her and might get her and Inia out of that toxic, commie environment. I'm interested in who others think will be Yuuya's girl.
Let this be our little secret, no needs to know we're feeling HIGHER AND HIGHER AND HIGHER!
