You can have a lot of roles and never amount to much in the public consciousness. Ryouko Tanaka has had a truckload of eroge roles and the closest thing she's had to a starring role in a mainstream anime is Hinata Kagura from the H2O: Footprints in the Sand anime, itself an adaptation of an eroge. Harumi Sakurai fared a bit better, scoring a starring role as Yuri in the Angel Beats! anime and a minor character role as Awaki Musujime in the To Aru Majutsu no Index anime. Neither of those titles are eroge adaptations, and Harumi Sakurai has done many eroge roles.

Sadly, female eroge seiyuus rarely gain much mainstream success. Eroge seiyuus who have garnered a fair amount of mainstream success like Yuu Asakawa, Shizuka Itou, Hitomi Nabatame, Kaori Mizuhashi, Mai Kadowaki, etc. are the exception, not the rule. So many go unloved and unappreciated despite obvious voice acting talent, such as Oma Ichimura, hitomi (AKA Hokuto Minami), Mio Yasuda, Aji Sanma, etc.

Yuu Asakawa's most major role in recent memory is Momoyo Kawakami of the Majikoi! games and anime, so she's not very successful right now. If there was ever an anime adaptation of the "Heaven's Feel" path from Fate/Stay Night she could reprise her role as Rider in that (and certainly reap the fame and acclaim). I would also like to hear her reprise her role as Mari Kazaoka in another White Album 2 anime adaptation, but right now the odds of that happening in the future are pretty low.

Is your current avatar picture a depiction of Fikatskia Latrova from Muvluv:TE? Honda Takako voiced her and is an experienced eroge seiyuu, so I'm surprised Latrova didn't get a route of her own in an 18+ version of the ML:TE VN. She and Yuuya consummating their relationship would be a bit odd (since she is a bit like his mother figure, and definitely one of his mentors) but less odd than some of Yuuya's other choices. Besides, Yuuya's experiences with Cryska show that he doesn't mind being around women from "Mother Russia."

Well as far as H-content goes it never really mattered at all for me in MuvLuv, though i would like if they'd give us a mix between an all age version and the adult version by not cutting out on the violence and gore... not that i'm a fan of that, rather its quite the opposite but the emotional impact of the horror served by it that way does helped to serve the overall horrors and loss of the characters better.

---------------------------------------------------------


That said i've been out of contact with muvluv for a while and i was wondering if there are any translation projects for novels besides Muv Luv Extra/Unlimited/Alternative translated (same for light novels translations).

Also i want to ask if TSF Forefront is still MIA ...

Apparently Muv Luv TDA is being worked on (Chicken Divers is done, and a few others are partially done too. Gabester has his hands on these i think) and also AF is getting some love too.

TSF forefront i haven't seen any update but i saw some new vids on youtube about changing the mech and color (which i haven't seen before)

Also, TE is getting a PC version.

That's good news, but the website doesn't appear to be working for me.

I hope that Carnelian illustrates the game. She was a founding member of Age, after all.

I have a question to ask, what does the "VF" stand for in the war dog and valkyrie team logos ?

It's a carryover from real-worl US Navy/Marine fighter squadrons. V = Fixed -Wing Aircraft, F= Fighter. That's why you'll see references to VMFA (Fixed-Wing, Marines, Fighter and Attack) squadrons.

...yes, I know they're mecha and not aircraft but hey, it's AGE.

If "V" is the prefix for fixed-wing craft, did they use a different term for swing-wing aircraft like the famous F-14 Tomcat from Top Gun again? Or is "fixed-wing" meaning anything that flies which isn't a VTOL or lighter-than-air craft?

V = Fixed-wing = Airplanes

H = Rotary Wing = Helicopters

Therefore, swing-sing fighters like the F-14 are 'fixed wing', as are VTOL aircraft like the Harrier and F-35 JSF. ALSO: All but one of the V-22 Osprey squadrons have the prefix "V". The only exception is HMX-1, which is POTUS' personal V-22 (and HMX-used to operate helicopters prior to adopting the V-22)

Also, in addition to what wavehawk said, the designation V is also supposedly derived from the French verb voler, meaning "to fly."

Note that the squadron designation will change based on the aircraft, eg:

F-14A Tomcat = VF-41. (Fighter Squadron 41).

F/A-18F Super Hornet = VFA-41. Strike Fighter Squadron 41.

A-6 Intruder = VA-75. Attack Squadron 75.

IRL, the F/A-18 was sold as a fighter/attack aircraft, a jack of all trades fighter bomber. In Muv-Luv, the Hornet fills the same tactical role as a TSF, and is not an attack aircraft, and therefore Muv-Luv Hornet squadrons in the USN and USMC are VF and VMF.

Also, by all rights the Wardogs sholdn't have any VF squadron designators, since they're IJA.

I don't know if this is against the rules, but a walkthrough was posted for Muvluv: photonflowers* game recently. People who want to learn more about the game but don't know Japanese/can't import the game can find out more about it here:

Two examples:

VMF-214 The Black Sheep Squadron of WWII fame (You guys who are at least as old as I am or older will rememebr the TV series). They were originally a fighter squadron (Fixed Wing Marine Fighter) from World War II up until 1957 when they became VMA-214 (Fixed Wing Marine Attack), . That year they still used "fighter" aircraft (The FJ-4 Fury), but In 1962 they switched to the A-4 Skyhawk and later (as of current) the AV-8B Harrier II. In other words, the Squadron turned from a light fighter squadron into a ground attack squadron.

The other example was already used:

VF-211 "Fighting Checkmates" used to be a fighter squadron (Fixed Wing Fighter), and flew primarily fighters (including the FJ-4 Fury) all the way until the F-14 Tomcat was retired. Right after switching to the F/A-18F Super Hornet, they were redesignated VFA-211 (Fixed Wing Fighter Attack). Far as I know it wasn't just a change of aircraft, but it also added ground-attack training for the pilots and their WSO/RIO.

Now the question here is: How does this all work in the Muv-Luv Universe. The A-6 and A-10 TSA mecha are distinctly different from the F-series TSFs. so it's obvious they would be dedicated attack squadrons. But the Hornet/Super Hornet and other TSF equivalents are labelled solely under the "F-" moniker.

I don't recall seeing any VFA/VMFA squadrons in Muv-Luv, but I'd guess that if they were to exist, they most likely would be a mixed-TSF/TSA squadron.
