View Full Version : Kimi ga Nozomu Eien - Requests for new threads
Since the Kimi ga Nozomu Eien forum is limited (only Mods and Admin can create new threads), this thread serves as a way to request a new thread to be created.
Please post here if you wish to request a new Kimi ga Nozomu Eien thread. Please bear in mind that we will only accept reasonable requests, we wish to maintain the focus within the forum and cut down on the noise (so no pointless threads cluttering up the place).
Don't forget that you may still post in existing threads as usual, the only restriction is that you may not create new threads within this particular forum.
And as a pre-emptive note, it should go without saying that new threads will be created for the OVA episodes as they're released (bi-monthly). So no need to ask. :p
If there's a thread regarding the 2nd and 3rd ~Next Season~ OVA release, I can't find it...
Thread for the second episode is stickied, right up here with the request thread :) click (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=64228).
The third OVA episode has yet to air; thread for it will be created when that time comes.
Haha stupid me... How embarrassing.
Requesting thread to be made for the 3rd ep of the OVA please! :)
So, time for a new thread about volume 4?
Guess so, the last episode is due to be released today.
Volume 4 is out. :)
The discussion thread for Vol 4 has been re-opened.
Sorry if this one seems a little unorthodox, but I'll try to explain myself first.
As one may or may not know, KimiNozo is tied into the broad multiverse (or Muv-tiverse, perhaps) of stories told in the various Muv-Luv games, books and what have you.
Indeed, Akane Maniax features some of the characters from Muv-Luv itself, such as Mitsurugi Meiya - who, as an aside, has been released in Figma form (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?p=2822417#post2822417), albeit from her incarnation seen in Muv-Luv Alternative. (Her Senjutsuki - tactical machine - as well as many others from Alternative, Total Eclipse, The Euro Front and elsewhere are part of the A3 (http://www.volks.co.jp/JP/a3/index.html) model line.)
So, my request is this: Can the various aspects of the Muv-Luv saga be discussed here, in a thread or two?
(I set up a thread intended to cover the broader Muv-tiverse elsewhere (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=89427), but if it was okay I'd ask if I could have it moved here, or perhaps re-started on these boards.)
The closest equivalent I can think of are how stories like Fate/Zero and Fate/Extra each have a home on the Fate/Stay Night board, despite being different from the 'main' saga (although it's still unknown just how far removed Extra will prove to be). I'd ask for Muv-Luv and its related spinoffs to be considered here, in a similar light.
With the recent announcement of a translation project (http://amaterasu.is.moelicious.be/blog/?p=386) for Muv-Luv Extra/Unlimited and Alternative, I felt like re-stating the above request, if it's not too much trouble to do so.
White Manju Bun
If you write an intro post, Ill make it a thread :)
(Before I start, though, I might note that there's a thread I posted here (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?p=2822412#post2822412), If it's not too much trouble, could it be moved here and renamed "Muv-Luv anime options?" also?)
So, an intro:
Senjutsuki Selections - the Muv-Luv general discussion thread
Following on from the stories told in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Akane Maniax, the Muv-Luv (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muv-Luv) franchise takes things into a wide and growing range of, one might say, Alternative directions!
The stories of Muv-Luv are spread over a range of timelines and settings. The first of the two universes shown in the original game is Extra - which starts the day after the events of Akane Maniax finish. In this reality, things seem somewhat normal, or at least as 'normal' as a Japanese high school setting in anime seems to be...
Yet, it is the second half of the original game, Unlimited, where things really start to get interesting. Rather than the relative peace (in Japan, at least) which one found in Extra, this world has been slowly ground down by a full-scale alien invasion, launched by a collection of life forms known to humanity as BETA. It is here where the Senjutsuhokousentouki (or Senjutsuki for short) - i.e. the mechs which help to define the franchise - are introduced.
The next game, Alternative, jumps to a second war-ravaged timeline. This is the world which has formed the basis of the range of spinoff stories - for example, while Alternative is mainly set in Japan, Total Eclipse is set in Alaska, while The Euro Front is, as its name suggests, in Western Europe.
After Alternative comes Altered Fable, which goes to a timeline which looks more like the peaceful world shown back in Extra. So far, unlike Extra/Unlimited and Alternative, Altered Fable does not seem to have an all-ages version, though I could be wrong (and there may or may not be such a version, if you'd want one, along sooner or later anyway.)
Included with Altered Fable, however, is the introduction to one of the side-stories previously mentioned - Total Eclipse (http://www.total-eclipse.jp/te/index.html). This story has been running in Tech Gian and published as a series of novels for a while now, and shows no sign of stopping.
The second notable side-story is The Euro Front - which has been updated in Hobby Japan each month. One of the notable aspects of this world is the range of Senjutsuki shown here, as opposed to those elsewhere on the planet. (In this setting, many of the mechs are named after 'real' warplanes, and are intended to echo them design-wise. TEF includes units based on the real-life Eurofighter Typhoon and Dassault Rafale, compared to the craft of Japanese, Russian and American origin elsewhere.)
There are a few other side-stories, too - some of which are previewed in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXWCN6YcWb8) - though it seems that TE and TEF are the ones to watch in terms of future development.
There's been a range of other merchandise released, too. Mitsurugi Meiya, one of the leading ladies of Muv-Luv, has been released in Figma (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?p=2822417#post2822417) form (http://www.goodsmile.info/product/en/2435/figma+Meiya+Mitsurugi+UN+Troop+Ver.html). Her signature mech (http://www.volks.co.jp/JP/a3/001.html), as well as a load of others from Alternative, Total Eclipse and The Euro Front, have been made by Volks, in their A3 (http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/a3/index.html) line. (Damn, I wish that black EF-2000 (http://www.volks.co.jp/jp/a3/2010lim02.html) wasn't an exclusive...) Plus, there are a few background books, not least Integral Works (http://www.techgian.jp/official/te/index.html) - which looks pretty neat (http://jilpoong17.egloos.com/4317246)...
Oh, and there's a Japanese-language wiki (http://www9.atwiki.jp/alternative) for the Alternative timeline, too. (On the TE (http://www9.atwiki.jp/alternative/pages/83.html) page, it says there will be an all-ages release of that story released in 2010, but I'm not sure where the source for that comes from, so...)
And one other thing: Both the original Muv-Luv game (incorporating Extra and Unlimited) and Muv-Luv Alternative have an English translation project (http://amaterasu.is.moelicious.be/blog/?p=386) in the works.
So, have you already acquainted yourself with the Muv-Luv multiverse (Muv-tiverse?), or are you still wondering what all the fuss is about?
