Wow, a post about Muv-Luv. What is this, a tale of love and courage circa 2006? I have to admit that this post has been rattling around in my head for like, almost four years, but I really only felt motivated to put the pen to paper now because how all of a sudden in the last month or so, there has been an upswell of interest in the games in places like /m/ and the Amaterasu Translations blog review. The post should be pretty much spoiler-free for Muv-Luv Alternative, although it does spoil Muv-Luv Unlimited.
I was forced to watch Da Capo 2 and Da Capo 2 2: The Search for Curly’s Gold two years when they aired. I couldn’t keep a straight face during them because of how insanely cliched they were. They crossed the line over into camp. OTOUTO-KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!. For reference, here is my post from my old blog about the first episode of Da Capo 2:
Yea I know I’m slacking in my drama posts. Finally Seira gets freaking paid for her slavery work. Also that childhood friend of Kaito’s is a fucking bitch. I really don’t know what the point of her coming to this episode and bullying Seira was. At least Seira slapped that ho lol. About the only smart thing she’s done in the entire series. I hope something decent happens soon, kinda tired of seeing “bully the Seira” every week.
So in conclusion, you can just skip right to 17:39 of this episode and it’ll actually be fairly enjoyable to watch. It got so ridiculously melodramatic with the crying and then the awful background music made me feel like I was watching some kind of 1950s drama movie. I started going “LASSIE COME HOOOMMEE!” when they zoomed out on the river I do feel rather sorry for Tsugumi. She got instantly placed into the “childhood friend that gets auto-rejected” role whether she likes it or not. I kinda shipped Jin x Nagi at first, then I was like whatever Nagi’s retarded, Tsugumi is better, but I guess near the end it’s really obvious Jin’s loins only stir for 1 person in this anime Oh well overall fun series to watch but probably not something I will persue (i.e. read the manga.) Kannagi pretty much ends for me with this episode.
