Saw this at Anime Expo and premiered two episodes including performances from Kumi Koda and Minami Kuribayash and the Original creator: Kouki Yoshimune.

From my first impressions without saying much is that it looked pretty good. I would recommend this anime. Can't wait for episode 3 already.


I'm amazed for the first time in my life that I'm actually ahead of the Japanese fans LOL. XDD

Can't wait for Episode 3. CUZ AMERICA!!! (b")b
I can remember that premiere with the blasting music, and ppl at AX making some noise during that time watching those two episodes

Don't know about Total Eclipse, but Muv-Luv Alternative itself is actually incredibly well regarded for it's well thought out plot. Or so I hear, I haven't read it yet and am not about to bash something I haven't read or seen in TE's case.
MLA is 50 hours of adrenaline and tears. And yet, the plot is nothing too unique. Aliens attacking, humanity fighting back with mechs, etc. It's the characters and the emotional impact they leave on the reader that makes it special. Well, that and the entire VN was designed from the start to be as cinematic as possible. They wanted to push the limits of the medium and they did a fantastic job of it.

Haven't read Total Eclipse either so no clue about it. Word is it's definitely not as good though.


if it's not as good i guess that's why it gets to be animated hahaha they don't want the good muv luv stories to be ruined like many other vn adaptations >.>

Well I have no idea what this show is about, but...as one of the lucky ones to go to AX I'll be sure too tell you if it sucks or not.

Hope funi or CR don't serialize it though.

As usual, commentators who act like they have seen the anime that haven't existed yet at all.

Eh, why not...I'll go watch this when I'm at the convention, provided I'm not lost somewhere in the exhibition hall.

At times like this I wish I wasn't a NEET shut-in.

I may be missing something , isn't Muv-Luv alternative a parallel world of some sort of the original Muv-Luv?
I was hoping they made an anime of Muv-Luv 1st.


Unlikely to ever happen considering the pace and style of the series. It would never translate properly into an anime format, though Total Eclipse works since it's a spin-off of the franchise.

I am totally not going to finish the VN in time

I think people who talk about an Evangelion like don't know that Muv-Luv Alternative was an excellent Visual Novel , probably one of the best for me .

Those b**bes can really shine, don't they?

And some people talking like Eva is the only anime existed.
