Spoiler for You are scared of that story:



EDIT:

Muv Luv main trilogy is one of the VNs that have taken advantage of the visual novel format and tropes, and build a story with those. It have taken the bold step to take the protagonists out of their environment and put them to test in another one. This is one of the reasons why I think it is memorable.

Alternative made her one of my favorite characters of the entire franchise. She was crazy, but the good kind of crazy. Someone you are happy to have on the good side.

Congratulations on completing Muv Luv Alternative, and be made welcome to the group as one who has completed this trial.
Not all who started this journey finished it, but those who do are changed in small but certain ways. Such is the sign of a good story, that some small wisdom is imparted to the soul.
Yes, MLA is one of the very very rare stories that combines many of the elements that made those science fiction stories so unique, adds in the Japanese element of romance, and manages to release it in a coherent and engaging storyline.
Of course, now that you have completed the main story, you must explore the expanding universe of ML. There is much more out there, each with its own goodness.

Have fun, and welcome to the brotherhood.

Yes, she may well be the keyhole character in the story. She did what she had to do, no matter what cost to others or herself. In the end she is still human, doing the work no one else can, and suffering for it.

I acknowledge that it is far from perfect if you look at the tiniest details and pick them apart with questions like, "Why TSFs?", "Why did not we do it against BETAs?", "Why did not BETAs do it sooner?", but in the end, the sums of all parts from the characters and their associated tropes, to the lolscience and political comment in the series made it a very engaging series should you invest time and interest in it. I mean, I have been reading the story, enjoying the narration and "Bah!!" paid no more mind to the critics. Because in the end, Muv Luv Alternative truly IS A Tale of Love and Courage. And with that tagline in mind, Kouki accomplisshed his mission, conveying it with all those moments of bravery and heartwarming.

No fictional story is made without some pre-established assumptions. One also cannot enjoy a story if one keeps looking for holes.
Personally I accepted the explanation that giant enemies require giant weapons, and lasers rule out planes. BETAs are aliens, who knows what they are thinking.
I think enjoying the story for what it is, not just for MLA, but for everything, is the best way to go in life. Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see, to quote a song.
And yes, it is a tale of hope and determination, which shines through the darkness of despair. Well done, Lord of Despair. Like Pandora's box, a glimmer of hope lies beneath the layers of darkness.

The cost of victory was high. Perhaps too high. While it was certainly better than the results of Alternative V it was still a heavy price to pay.

And Takeru's efforts won't even be remembered in Alternative. Except by Kasumi and Yuuko.

Amazon does sell the newer version of Chronicles 03, not sure about 02 and 01 though. There is always Yahoo Japan Auctions though.
As there is no translated versions you will need an understanding of Japanese or use a machine translator.

If you don't feel satisfied, see it as Altered Fable as a continuation of Alternative (Despite age clearly stating in the intro Altered Fable is not related to any other work).

Anyways, typical of Age. Bittersweet ending.

Congrats on making it through MLA! Welcome to the brotherhood, we are slowly growing!

While some feel as you do on Final Extra, I feel that as an ending that goes back to the beginning, it is as the end of the circle.

I'm in dire need of some Yuuko's avatar

@shega : there's a fanfic in the fanfiction thread that follows up with your post.. Though whether you'll like it or not it's up to you

I have put together an almost full translation of the video, combining all the sources I had and self translating the rest. I need some help with the translation of the background text if anyone can help, thanks.

Spoiler for Almost full translation of the PV:
Boy, I'm so rusty. Prepare yourselves for some rough translation. I tried to make it make sense as I can.

Thank you very much! The translations looks great! I'll just adjust the spacing a little when I get the subbing done.
