Nothing can really be done about the pacing, though.

A lot of people, myself included, criticized it, but considering what MLA tried to accomplish in endearing the cast to the reader, it was extremely difficult to do in a group setting. It didn't work for everyone - a lot of people who hated Sumika in Extra still hated her at the end of Alternative. There's going to be a lot of comments along the line of "I didn't care about the characters" because there's simply too many the game tries to make you care about. One person who played the game told me she didn't like how the main cast receded into the background for the Valkyries following the 12-5 incident.

What would end up happening in anime is the ML story would be reduced to just Sumika and Meiya, and much of the details would be cut out, so the ideas and emotion the game managed to capture would not be communicated to the anime viewers.

This is a misconception; it has never been and will probably never be licensed. The translators wanted the developers to license the game to an English distributor, but currently they seem to have no interest in doing so.

Oh, but there is. You just have to know where to look.

This really depends on the amount of work sunk into the adaptation, as I said earlier.

Thanks a lot for the tip! I'll play through Muv-Luv after I finish YMK and Symphonic Rain, which will probably be a long time from now but I'm in no hurry.

Is this the gloomy and gory version/edition/iteration of the game with those russian sisters that appeared in every other doujinshi 3-4 years ago?

Nice. Let's just hope they pull it off right. It will probably be full of drama but eh, as a fan I can't miss this.

I don't know much about Muv-Luv other than the Senjutsuki and BETA, and that's....just fine for me.

Can't wait to see those things animated.

I've only heard of this now, but I'm quite interested in Total Eclipse. And who knows, if this fares well, maybe we see a Muv-Luv Alternative in the future.

It's a shame that I won't see Meiya so soon, kicking asses in her TSF.

Well I just finished Extra and am about three hours into Unlimited and well, I'm hooked.

I've got Alternative all lined up for when I finish all of Unlimited's routes and the news of an anime adaption for the prequel to Unlimited just made my day.

Thanks blokes! (and blokettes?)

It's a prequel to Alternative, actually.

From my understanding for it to be a prequel to Alternative it would also have to be a prequel to Unlimited?

Notting all.
It's just a side-story in Alaska, a story that takes place in parallel to the main story.

No. TE just occurs in a time-period before Alternative. Remember that Alternative is

I already finished Extra and Unlimited and currently playing Alternative, and I am hooked. I'm excited about this news. Maybe one day the MuvLuv trilogy will be animated.

The problem with that is that it's still being serialized, only up to episode 11. It'll be a while before that can be animated.

All of the confusing connections aside.... the director is Inagaki Takayuki? That does not fill me with feelings of hope. Will probably pass on this.

I know the feeling. I played nothing but Alternative in every spare waking moment I had for a week.
