I can't agree with that since the Takeru in the Betaverse is in fact a synthesis of Takeru in the Extraverse where he fell in love with the other girls not only Sumika, and Meiya's appearance in October 22nd is the trigger to the loops that Takeru is facing and why the loops constantly starts with October 22nd. I can understand what you're saying but as a fan of the Trilogy, i can't agree to animating Muv-Luv Alternative without animating Extra and Unlimited, since Extra is the start of everything while Unlimited is the beginning of the loops.

Dude... I want the Trilogy to be animated too LOL. I was saying IF the Trilogy is too expensive and long ad only one of the three is to be made. By the way... do you want that ALL THE ROUTES in the TRILOGY be included? That would be more confusing....

Oh, when I mentioned about the MLA and MLATE connection since...

Had been thinking, what if we made Extra as an OVA, then Unlimited and Alternative as two following animes?

A 1 hour OVA for Extra, Two OVA for Unlimites and a one cour for Alternative.

You'd need two, maybe 3 hours for Extra. Consider Amagami SS - even with just taking the best route and skipping things, each girl's route takes 4 episodes to cover.

So really barebones adaptation: Extra 6 episodes, Unlimited 6 episodes, Alternative 12. Which is still really damned rushed - Total Eclipse took 25 episodes, remember, and it's shorter than Alternative.

It's just not doable with any level of ease.

I'm not the one trying to do it in once season like NoemiChan. I'm showing how ridiculously rushed it's going to be.

Face it, we will have to seperate Unlimited and Alternative into two seasons. And then The Day After as OVA.

Also, the prospect of TSF figures and other side-materials (acessory,...) bussiness. Could anyone tell me how well did they sell for all these years?

Well, there are actually many adaptations which chose the "read the original or GTFO" approach.

Take the old JJBA OVA series, for example.
While Part 3 is a somewhat self-contained story, things don't make even half as much sense without you knowing the plot of the previous two parts.

Same for many other short OVA adaptations, they leave out much content. Yet it remains presentable.
With a good director and skilled storyboard writers, even that could be mitigated considerably.
Flashbacks and other ways to get a glimpse into the plots of Extra and Unlimited would be surprisingly effective, IMO.

The only problem is that these type of shows are almost exclusively for the fans of the original material.
It'd be a pretty poor choice for a company which wishes to "branch out".

Animating the original Muv-Luv would've been pretty nice.
In 2005 or so.
Unfortuantely from what I heard, in spite of Age's intentions, no one supported them with that.
Otherwise you'd been probably seeing Muv-Luv Extra right after the Akane Maniax OVAs were released.
Followed by Unlimited and then some years later Alternative.
But well, their timing was just unlucky I guess.

Even now, Age is no Type-Moon which can decide to re-make the adaptation of Fate/Stay Night a while after Fate/Zero's success.

For them an approach similar to what did the pull with Total Eclipse is the best.
And from what little information I have that indeed seems to be the case.
I'm probably telling old news but there will be a new Muv-Luv series starting from 2014.
I don't think they have announced the title yet but everything strongly hint for Schwartzesmarken.
By which I mean that there's already a trailer for an upcoming VN that tells the story of the 666th TSF Squadron.
I don't particularly mind this, if at all.
It's just this will slowly generate the paradoxical situation where everything but the actual core story is getting animated.

Oh well, who knows?
Maybe we'll see animated Takeru and his friends in 2025.
Probably after the VN series gets a remake.
Theorizing Age will keep milking Muv-Luv even then.

Well, if the budget is limited.

I agree since it's just an OVA.

Can we list down the important events that took place in the Trilogy to see how each can fill up an episode?

That's just F*ck. I suggest we kill off the original developers to push the project so it can be made earlier.^^

Any got links for story overviews of Total Eclipse novels/visual novel?

I stumbled across a pretty upsetting fact and I just wanted more closure.
