[Anime] Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse

Post by TopgunUK on Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:38 pm



Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse
Spin off from this VN



Status: Airs July 2nd
Producers: Satelight, Avex Entertainment, Ixtl
Genres: Action, Mecha, Sci-Fi, Military

Synopsis:
In the year 1973, alien species known as BETA (Beings of Extra Terrestrial origin which are Adversaries of humanity) invaded Earth, after wiping out humanity’s lunar research and military installations. 28 years later, most of the Eurasian continent has been laid waste and stripped bare and the global population has been reduced to one billion. As previous military strategies and tactics were catastrophically ineffective against the BETA, the human race began to develop piloted robot weapons called “Tactical Surface Fighters” (TSFs).

Thus in 2001, elite pilots around the world start to gather at a UN base in Alaska named Yukon to participate in Project Prominence. This project is a multinational effort handled by the United Nations on research and development of TSFs against BETA, and the job of the pilots is to test the prototypes, which occasionally involves pitting one against another.

Second Lieutenant Yuuya Bridges is a maverick and top pilot in the US armed services with a disdain towards Japan, due to his Japanese father leaving him and his mother. Assigned to Yukon by exasperated superiors keen on sending him away, among pilots of various nationalities, he may come to grips with his blood heritage.

Meanwhile across the globe events in the anti-BETA war are moving swiftly, and Yuuya with his comrades may soon be called upon to perform an assignment with no return…

I'm making this thread now for two reasons:

1. I have Muv-Luv on the brain having finished the VNs recently.

2. Because fuck you, Furball, you can't have 'em all!

Anyway I don't know if it'll be any good but it's set in the MLA universe so I'mma watch it anyway.

The Americans gave the Soviets back Alaska. That way they can use them as a buffer between them and the BETA.

Most of Canada is irradiated because the second hive landed there and the US destroyed it immediately with a concentrated nuclear strike.

The BETA are actually tactically and strategically retarded for reasons that become apparent later on in the Alternative VN, the only reason humanity's still around is because the BETA don't even consider humans to be intelligent life, they don't even understand that they're at war, humans are just in the way as far as they're concerned.

The English channel wouldn't stop them because they can just walk across the sea floor, but the combined EU forces fell back to Great Britain and continue to hold the line, though in this PV for the still untranslated spin off Chronicles VNs (one of which is Total Eclipse) you can see that the BETA are already fucking up London.



And yes, it seems even the BETA don't want Africa.

The music from the PV is an instrumental version of the ED apparently.

The Laser Class BETA are the biggest danger because they basically made air superiority useless, which is why the development of the TSFs has basically been this universe's version of Fighter plane/Jets (most of them are named after Fighters in our world and they're made by bogus companies with names like "Lockweed Mardin" lol).

The Laser class BETA also intercept artillery and missiles so the humans developed anti laser shells that they always fire in the first volley which are meant to be hit by the lasers, when they explode they form clouds of heavy metals which once thick enough are enough to block the laser class from intercepting the real artillery strike.

It took about 2 mintues for that image to load for me. I edited it with a more compressed version. Also, that last one... has a giant vagina.

Muv-Luv Alternative is set in 2001, this is set in the same year, but before MLA starts.

It's a parallell universe that first split off from ours at around the end of WW2, Japan surrendered and the US dropped nukes on Berlin instead.

The space race progressed much more quickly and shiz, after the BETA arrived on Earth Fighter Jets were pretty much entirely replaced by TSFs, they're capable of ground combat and Nap of Earth flight (which is low enough to avoid getting completely fucked by lasers most of the time) so best of both worlds, they're also able to traverse the terrain inside hives unlike other land vehicles.

Yes, yes it does.

How far did you get in MLA btw?

I just started playing it again. I just looked at the last save date and it was 1/29, I didn't think it had been that long. I can't remember exactly where I am, I'm sure I'll remember after a few minutes of reading.

The scale doesn't work like that, mang.

It's just an order ranking, so it could be a million times as strong as diamond or it could be less than twice as strong as diamond as long as there are another four minerals added to the scale in between diamond and the BETA armour.



New slightly different version of PV.

ED.

Watched a raw stream, the animation is even more budget-starved than I expected, and the OP(which they used as the ED this time) is fucking terrible.

Suiting up scene probably swallowed half the budget. Priorities.

Oh, and the LN isn't translated yet, but this entire ep was Anime original, so just in case there weren't enough death flags, all deese girls gonna die next ep.

Except Yui.

Edit:
Spoiler:
And according to people who saw the second episode at AX, at least some of them are gonna die horribly.

Apparently there'll be an uncensored airing in a few days.

But for the majority of this sidestory I doubt there'll be much of the kind of thing seen in the last ep.
