Don't look around too much and end up getting spoiled in the process. You just have to know that the first Muv-Luv game comes with Extra and Unlimited. Unlimited is unlocked by clearing Sumika and Meiya route in Extra.

Once you are done with those, you are ready for the final game. Muv-Luv Alternative, the last part, needs to be acquired separately.

Getting back on topic, the staff sure went all out in this episode. The fight scenes were superb and intense. So they were saving up their budget for the last two episodes or so?

Angry about Berkut beating a 00F up? I'm surprised Yui even lasted that long.

I'm not precisely certain what was going on at the end, but they make it appear as though they were discussing the assassination plot. Yet then all of a sudden, it goes on to something about enemies & love rivals.

Awhile after the battle had already ended, you don't see Yuuya and Cryska. So apparently he was captured by the Soviets, and they just probably threw them both into the tank together for whatever medical reason. Time passes, Yuuya shrugs off the obvious atmosphere between Yui and himself by keeping it all formal. Yui meets Ensign Barchenowa, and then they have THE talk.

Freeze it!

You see that! That right there is the look of mortal fear. The desperate hope that she doesn't find out about what he has done. And yet, Yui doesn't flip the collective shit. Because, she is also keeping a secret from Yuuya, which she failed to tell him as he shrugged her off earlier. When that happened, I don't know. But in both cases for what is certain, Yifei is going to kill him.

I wished they make a "special" Yuuya X Yui reunion OVA.

So your theory is that Yuuya and Cryska have consummated their relationship, but Yui isn't giving up?

Spoiler for Scarface's Fate:


Good riddance!

Anyways, I thought it was a great ending.

The battle sequences were really good and we got to see real emotions coming from the Ice Queen herself.

I did like the subtle shot of Yui watching Yuuya consoling Cryska.

I'm not sure how I'm supposed to feel at that moment since I have mix emotions about it. Those ladies are amazing and I like them equally!

It's still pure winning either way for Yuuya "Dat Freedom" Bridges so it's all good with me! lol

By the way, I did like the salute that they shared since it shows the mutual respect for each other after such a rocky start in their relationship.

To me, it was a nice touching scene overall.

There are moments where you don't need words to show what's really going on.

The way I saw it was that they know she'll return and continue the XFJ Plan.

It's just that at this moment, they're both saddened by her abrupt departure.

Yui's face is more obvious while Yuuya has a more complex look before giving her a final salute to his boss.

I know people wanted a "Bodyguard" moment with chessy music playing and dat slow-mo crap but we know that wasn't gonna happen.

On a more serious note, I'm not gonna lie. My jaw actually dropped when I thought Yuuya bit it back there.

My body would not be ready for that kind of tragic conclusion if it did happened. lol

This is Muv Luv and all, but I'm glad no one got taken out...yet.

It's actually refreshing to go unconventional by what ML does best and not "Tomino" everything that breathes.

I won't give it a rating since I'm not a reviewer or anything like that.

I'm just enjoying the ride (In my Raptor) and hoping that this baby gets ported to North America one day!

- i was certain Yuuya will not die but the shock is he barely injured
- Sandek is just doing his job
- actually i am wondering did they cut Inia's story or something, at one point she was hinted to be not as innocence/naive as she looks/acts, i was expecting some twists for her...

overall this show is 6/10 for me, but if episodes 1 and 2 are standalone/OVA, i would give them 8/10

So, did Stella and Macaroni actually reach the U.S. Anchorage Base for reinforcements or did they double back to Yukon instead? I remember them going there, but that plot point seemed to get drop in the last 2 episodes.

They got some guns from the Raptors. Dont think they made it all the way to the american base, since they had to help with clearing Luxs. And Captain Burnings was riding the one eyed dragon!

I was watching this just this morning (fittingly enough, on Cryska's birthday).

On one hand I was like "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- WHY Y U NO CONTINUE!? THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF TO BE DONE!?"

On another, they managed to wrap up anime neatly enough, some of the points while not fully resolved, are at least set forward for a definite conclusion...if we ever get to see a real ending. But then again, that's only fair - because real Total Eclipse has not been concluded either.

Overall, this maybe was not the best mecha show ever; but it did reasonably enough. Personally I liked it, maybe because I never tried to compare it with Alternative. Sure, it's the same universe, but Total Eclipse is an unrelated, test-pilot related side-story. And I felt it did pretty well with that, if you squinted past some obligatory fan service episodes. In fact, the show probably suffers from the simple time limitation - there's just no way to squeeze in all the details an explanations that you can pack into novel or VN.

Spoiler for As for the actual episode::


Well, now all that's left is the Total Eclipse VN~

Its just a promotional thing for the game. It meant to end anime original way. If it ended the age/muv luv intended way then count your number of coffins.

But they couldn't have ending it the "age intended way" because story of TE has yet to end. It ended in a similar enough fashion to the point where the novels stopped at.

So yeah, the anime is definitely promotional material for the V/N, but that doesn't mean there won't be another season.
