@Malkuth: You're seriously not going playing the VNs? Spoiling yourself to the VN plot is robbing yourself of what could be an incredible, exhilarating experience. Some of the twists in the VNs are mind-blowing and cannot give you the same feeling if you know about them in advance. And it's not like the Total Eclipse anime is going anywhere, you're not obligated to watch it immediately.

@Tempester: I will not install windows just to play a VN, however good its translation might be. If there was a game script like the ones flowing around for Tsukihime and Fate, I might have considered that, but an extended synopsis without literally fluff is what I prefer.

But do you even need that? From your posts, it seems your Japanese is fluent enough to get past the language and technical barriers for the novels.

As for the win7 release, I' praying they'll use new sprites for it. The new look of the Shiranui and Raptor in TDA were just spectacular above all reasons. Just thinking how they'll improve those things even more just makes feel ecstatic. Any word whether it'll be all Ages? I'm starting to miss the pointy mountains after going through Chronicles 3.
Thanks for the vote of confidence, but actually its all from using AGTH...
I just have an understanding of voices and emotions, and recognize enough spoken Japanese to navigate Tokyo. I just read alot of Sci-Fi over the years, and can recognize all the technical terms they show by their animations, and by inference of the translated text. Otherwise, i can't read a single Kranji...

So without a text hooker, i'm out for the newer stories like ML:Chronicles 3...

And yes, they are using the X-Box 360 graphics and rGUPv6 engine for the Win7 ver, with widescreen aspect. Just wondering if its the All Age ver or the normal one too.

@Malkuth: Well, ultimately it's your call and I can't stop you from spoiling yourself.

But one last thing: it's confirmed that the Total Eclipse anime will have additional scenes and content that will flesh out the BETA universe for those who are unfamiliar with the Muv-Luv series. So spoiling the story of the main VN trilogy for yourself probably won't be necessary.

I'm fine with that. Besides, I'm well aware that TE cannot even compare to the main series. It's primary goal was to expand upon the tsf technology which they delivered without problems. That, plus selling TSF figures to the fans. lol.

Why would you want to read synopsis for the main trilogy? Is it to understand the Muv-Luv world better? If so, it's not needed. Kouki already mentioned they plan to make the anime friendly to the newcomers so don't worry. Plus, I don't recommend doing such things just to be on the safe side.

Yes, Total Eclipse has different cast than the trilogy.

Pictures do speak a thousand words And I went through phrase by phrase with the translator to pick up the meanings. It really increased my Jap understanding. I'm now good enough to understand by listening. Still can't do anything if its just text though.

Keep it up. You'll get better if you don't stop learning the language. :3

Rough translation of a sentence in the article.

ゲーム版がどのような内容になるのかは、いまのところ不明である
As for what kind of content the game version will end up having, it still remains unknown at the moment.

Content is still unknown. I'm more inclined to think that its a vn to be honest.

Should be the continuation of the TE VN promo that came with Altered Fable years ago. TE was the test bed for VN expansion in the MLA universe back then after all, together with Chicken Divers and the Marimo Special from the Comiket issues later. It was all bundled together for Chronicles 1 later.

Hope the Insanity OP comes back in the anime somewhere.

3 more days to go ^^

Looks like i'm wrong. I thought it was the part just after the base invasion when he was having flash back of the dead.
It might be from one of the prequel side stories then, during the operation to capture a live BETA specimen for Yuko.

Muv-Luv universe? That includes thing such as Kimi-nozo, Ayu-Mayu, and pretty much most of age's works which all somehow intertwine.
