I read the mods are already unsheathing bancalibur, so good luck craxuan.

anyway, regarding muvluv alternative i am holding off on playing the game because there is a good chance now that it will also get made into an anime.

Really? Source?

Or is it just speculation?

Personally, I'm glad that the Geopolitical thread was spliced off from this one, and put on the Game forum.

That being said, if anybody wants to voice their concern on how spoilers are treated on Anime Suki, this thread might be a good place to do so.

I would watch the anime for now. Because someone answered that the story here in total eclipse won't matter much or make a difference on the main story and just consider it 2 different stories but its more like this story is prequel?

So when someone mentioned that they are testing stuff for the main stuff then its probably true that showing total eclipse would be a test run for the alternative.
Total Eclipse is a side story

It takes place before the main storyline of Alternative begins with new characters and a completely different location/purpose, so just enjoy TE.

Of course TE assumes you're already familiar with the Alternative universe, so we'll see how indepth the anime will try to explain things.

Not all VN authors write highschool romance stories all the time. Take Fate/Stay Night for example, H-VN as its medium, but a fantasy story at its core. A novel can be whatever the author of it wants to be, how does this even remotely seem surprising?

Because Kinoko Nasu does not write thousands of pages to sell the toys of his employer, but his own work. It's a difference in objectives and target audience.

Figurines are toys too, you know.

I guess AmeNoJaku means that selling Saber figurines wasn't Nasu's main objective when he wrote FSN, while this particular anime seems to have mecha merchandize as at least one of its main purposes.

That being said I think that when it comes to Anime usually they can deliver good works even when there are strong commercial objectives behind them.

Meh, almost all anime are guilty of 'strong commercial objectives.' I see no difference if they're trying to market toys or sell dvds. Or in the case of Nasu like other LN-based works, the anime of his works are largely made just to sell more of LNs. :shrug:

Total Eclipse LNs weren't just to sell TSF figures, they were also very much for the purpose of infodumping large quantities of technical information about TSFs and TSF development that he didn't get to put in Alternative, also descriptions and pics of TSFs that weren't in Alternative. And it's not like they started selling toys right after the game came out to cash in right away, it took quite a while for them to start. Not like games were sponsored by toy makers either.

So, I wouldn't say that Yoshimune was writing the franchise with sales of TSF figures and kits as his primary purpose, though that was probably a part of Total Eclipse (seeing also that the A3 and Revoltech sales were part of what convinced them to fund the anime), and I guess some other side stuff.

Edible BETAs? Reminds me of, mmm, Reticulan burgers.

(bonus for those who recognize THAT reference, and no it's not connected to Muv Luv)

Off Topic: Reticulan Burgers are a reference to a Lets Play of UFO: Aftershock, kind of a spriitual successor to X-Com. Basically the player was getting so many reticulan (read: alien) corpses that they didn't know what to do with them. The answer? Research alternative uses for them! The end result, of course, was the Reticulan Burger. Heh.

On Topic: ... Though in the case of the BETAs I don't think it's viable. Hmm, come to think of it, in the aftermath of the Kyoto defense, there's a suspicious lack of BETA corpses lying around compared to the sheer amount of human dead (as shown by the mass graves and bodybags).
