NO!

People been shipping these two since they were first introduced in the novels since 2007. There's even doujins of those two during those years even before the anime aired!

Your questions sounds very wrong since it suggest we never shipped them until we found out they were siblings! This almost sounds like people never like vampires and werewolves until Twilight came. (Which is much worse! Crazy fangirls thinking these creatures are misunderstood romantics!? What the Heck is wrong with them?)

So do I! So do I...
It's nice to see how beautiful but fragile love is! Just like Cinderella's Glass Heel.
Also, what would you guys think if I made them twin in my Extra fic? Major acrobatic, I know! But they are just so completed the other! (Kind of reminds me and my brother.)

No, that is not what I mean. These word just for the sake to prove that there is a Rebellious part in us fans!

Has Mai Nakahara had similar roles to Yui Takamura in the past? I don't really keep up with her works much.

Looking back on old posts, I saw this and recalled an old doubt: was Yui's age ever defined by official sources?

As far as I remember, it was only stated that she was still under 20 years-old when the main events of Total Eclipse began. Personally, I believe Yui was about 19 when she went to Alaska. My basis is simple: in 98 (still prior to the BETA invasion), the Japanese diet had just passed a bill lowering the minimum age for female conscription to 16 years old. Considering how Yui was still a cadet around that time, she shouldn't have been much younger (or older) than that.

Well, who knows! The Takamura's is a samurai family, so there could be the possibility of Yui enlisted volunteery.

- Yes. Not EXACTLY the same, but similar.

The important point here is "official sources". As in reference books or any other materials released by age itself. Even if it comes from Kouki, half-hearted sources such as twitter have as much credibility as the rumors in 4chan.

I thought this was debated already in the past...

She was like 14 when the anime started and the 3 years after 'thingy' happened which basically means shes 17 when the she was posted at Yukon.

Twitter has been used before to convey pieces of Muv-Luv canon (such as remaining TSF designs), so it is no less reliable than official works (keep in mind that anime invalided parts of Light Novel and TSFiA, with Kouki saying that anime canon takes precedence...only for VN to invalidate some of anime's canon).

Yui being 14 at the time of battle of Kyoto does make sense though, since the noble families would be expected to start their training earlier. Keep in mind that her training was accelerated, so that her class would be ready for BETA invasion. I imagine that her training would be otherwise long enough to finish when she was fully 15...right in time for the draft. Since Marimo mentions that her school subjects switched more and more into military training as BETA got closer, before it shifted into being a virtual boot camp. Marimo is about 20-something at least, which would mean that child soldier training had to begin at least several years before '98.

I suppose any regulation might have been a simple attempt to legalize what would be otherwise illegal action in training children as full-fledged soldiers, before the UN had gotten in on the act too.

Also, the minimum draft age is 15, not 16.

TL;DR version:

Kouki is the creator of Muv-Luv franchise. If he says that someone is 17, then they are 17 years of age.

Yui: My favorite anime character so far! The pilot suit is awesome, and she really knows how to control her tactical surface fighter!
