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.
Over 9000 jokes aside, bye bye Selveria. Actually I kinda feel sorry for her. She died for that faggot and all he can do is say “oh well I coulda used her some moar.” I feel sorry for the shota who defended her, but maybe he has a chance to catch up to her in heaven or something. I’m glad that that stupid fat army captain got wiped out though, if I had to hear his fat ass talking one more freaking time… The whole Darks (Darukusu?) native being the princess was pretty surprising though. Didn’t see that one coming. Next week:
If the Mustafa obsession wasn’t bad enough, now Kajika thinks that the guy who tried to kill Rumati looks like her long lost Doberman I mean this guy doesn’t seem to mind, but if someone told me “you look like a dog” I’d be kinda pissed In addition Kajika tells Rumati he can “touch her anytime he wants” lololol. At least the Rumati crap is over, I was so tired of the emofest. Unfortunately it appears that Mustafagene is back next week having yet another rivalry session with Li Ren. It’s funny how in this episode Li Ren’s dad’s whore wife was like “If you like her so much why don’t you just propose to her.” He gives her this response of him not being as simple as her, while the actual response is “Kajika hasn’t gone through all her animal look alikes yet.”
So the Eugene arc finally ends this week. They went deep into his past and how his mother committed suicide before she turned 20 and Eugene planned to do the same. But according to Kajika he was “waiting for somebody to kill him” so umm she shot his reflection in the mirror? So next time you got a really emo friend or something, just make him walk into a room then point a gun at him and shoot it at the mirror behind him. Instant results overnight! Also Kajika said that while she LOVES Mustafagene, she can’t picture herself marrying him. I mean who would marry a leopard?
The part with Tomoya visiting his father was the most depressing one of the episode. Once again I cried, just like I did in the game. It’s great to see him finally going home to live with his mother and stop “trying so hard” but it’s also depressing at the same time because he was pretty miserable throughout the entire Clannad series. Just thinking back makes me cry too, so no Tomoya, you weren’t the only one bawwwing this week. Otherwise, for once I didn’t mind the Fuuko scene. It was well fit and her hugging Ushio was hillarious lol. Don’t worry Fuuko, if I saw Ushio in real life I might be tempted to do the same. Btw I hope you all know who Ushio’s kindergarten teacher is
Warning, watching this episode may cause red puffy eyes and a bucket full of tear soaked tissues. Continue reading
And so Takumi finally pulls out his di-sword! And you know why? Because of his raburabu for Rimi Continue reading
Key the Metal Idol is almost exactly the sort of anime that I think of when I think of those early 90s OVAs that I considered anime to be exclusively made up of and therefore suck. I say “almost” because while there are a few guro scenes (like when the one Miho robot rips her chest open), it wasn’t loaded with that graphic violence that I generally think of. It does however have the other two requirements: robots and tits.
