Review: Muv-Luv Alternative – Total Eclipse

MuvLuv1

In 1973, an invasion of aliens known as BETA upon Earth is driving human civilization into nearly collapse. Facing an enormous mass of enemy force, mankind has developed large humanoid arms called as Tactical Surface Fighters and deployed them to its defense lines through out the world. However, all those efforts could slow down defeats but could not stop BETA, and mankind is forced to abandon major area of the Eurasian Continent. For 30 years, mankind is bogged down in an endless war against BETA without any hopes of victory.
In 2001, the Imperial Japan faces difficulties in the development of a next-generation main Tactical Surface Fighters (TSF) as it defends the front lines of the Far East. The UN has proposed a joint development program between the Imperial Japan and the United States as a part of its international mutual development project of TSF, the Prominence Project.
This story with exciting human dramas and robot actions takes place in the development of a new Tactical Surface Fighters, the most important and effective weapons against BETA, at a crisis of human extinction.
Yet they never knew that their encounter would change their destiny drastically.
Yui Takamura, a TSF pilot of the Imperial Royal Guards of Japan, is given responsibility for the project and sets off to Alaska. Meanwhile, Yuya Bridges, also a TSF pilot of the US Army, was heading to the same destination.

I do love Mecha Anime, thats the first thing I saw, I didn’t know what to expect, but I love it when I see robots, and this time around Muv-Luv Alternative was an interesting story. You get pulled into the characters from the beginning with a few more interesting characters getting introduced, and the world is fighting a losing battle against an Alien Force that just won’t stop. I can’t help but like because it has the Mecha machines and the battles are cool. The story is decent, not great, there are few things that just didn’t make sense but the battles made up for and the wacky characters too. If you want a good Mecha anime, then Muv-Luv does the job, don’t have high expectations and enjoy.

  1. @Sabre – Yup very cool!

    @Ammar Lashkari – Thats just ridiculous!! lol

  2. I wished if it continued with the same theme as the first 2 episodes, it was dark and thrilling.. although it ended nicely.

  3. @Kal – Yeah I know what you mean, sometimes you want something a bit more sinister!
