That's great I guess. Looking forward to the threads that might even salvage a part of it.
Shillin' time, collector's tier gets Sumika figma, artbook is fattened and some other stuff.
>Funding bumped up by 3k in a matter of minutes
you underestimate how much people have wanted IW translated and as a physical copy
Hopefully soon. A majority of people secretly like Chizuru, but the vocal minority have created the illusion that nobody likes her, which obviously isn't true, and that has inhibited people from singing her praises. She's a great girl who I know deserves some more recognition.

Nice ass-statistics champ
If they add a Kashiwagi one I'm in trouble.
So I recently finished alternative and watched top tsun adventure after that.
Other than keeping myself busy with feeling completely dead inside and mildly disappointed by nothing happening in TE after episode 2 other than a little bit of character development, is there anything else worth experiencing related to ML?
I somewhat enjoyed the side stories and TDA more than main series. Granted, they are short and not such a rollercoaster, but they are delivered in a more compact package and I considered them much better written. The two translated stories have a great melancholic feeling, and I guess that's what most people drawn into muv luv generally search.
Author clearly has a preference for DFC.
SM's going to be so shit. Only reason I'm interested is because of pic related.
SM has a good cast, it's just it's plot that sucks. SM's author, Hiroki has the same issue that Takahiro does with AkG and that is that he's a romantic comedy/drama writer and not a grimdark action epic writer. It's why the prequel is better written and plotted because the author is clearly in his comfort zone.
2D German grils really are the best.
Those two are cuter than they have any right to be. Jürgen is really lucky to have em. Beatrix especially. Girl was willing to wait two years for Jürgen and not sleep around first chance she got.
>tfw they'll be trying to kill one another in a couple of years
So how can they possibly be edgy? They're literally fighting a war against mindless insects, they can't torture them or inflict any meaningless pain on them.
Do they paint their TSF's with BETA blood?
Here's an example:
Also, SM bends over backwards to fuck it's characters over. The ending is the big stickler for a looooooot of people.
Bunch of different versions. The first one has more Muvluv girls.
How about beating babies to death with rocks? Also rape, plenty of rape for everyone. You also get to read about best friends killing one another (and I'm not just talking about Beato and Iris). Ever single romance ends in tragedy. All the torture porn involving Beatrix or Axmann. Also the fact that most of the characters are brutally killed by other humans instead of aliens. The MC himself shows no mercy, going for cockpit shots and killing disabled/surrendering enemies in the finale.
I don't really buy that though. They'll be making a digital Codex either way, its as simple as getting a company to print it.
For work, I've had to get physical full color hundred page manuals made and its a super simple process.
The only thing I can think of is that it's because this kickstarter is so heavy on the physical rewards, that codex and the Sumika figure are automatically included in many of the reward teirs so that 180k isn't just for putting the thing together.
>Raptor limit will be adjusted to 200 as requested by some backers.
Should I switch to the Raptor or stay with the Takemikazuchi?
A lot of kickstarters have a big bump in the last few days that add up to a bit over half the first day's amount, so if we get lucky and have that, then 900k is definitely within reach. Especially with all of the shit 900k adds to existing tiers, which gives people an incentive to jump up from the lower tiers.
I'd like Tama more if she used her hair as weapons a la Bayonetta.
The KS is gonna speed up even more when it reaches the Photon stretch goal tomorrow.
Stay with the Takemikazuchi.
The Infinities Raptor doesn't look as great in real life and is pretty cheap online. If you want a Raptor, get Walken's.
The Takemikazuchi 1.5 box is also fucking huge which makes shipping pretty pricey.
Axemann was changed from a 40-something graying haired man in the LN to a 20-something bishie to be Theo's rival for the VN, and is being hyped hard by Tech Giant as the real big bad. The shit he does makes Beatrix a saint in comparison. Which says a lot.
Yes, the same dude who had Lise taken, raped, blackmailed, and gradually broken into becoming a Stasi agent.
Fitting really when you consider the type of fortified suits they are wearing.
I'm tempted to straight-up add another couple twenties just for another Ruitare plushie. I hope to have a friend who's a good seamstress recreate it in a larger huggable form as a gift for a friend who loves ML. Even if it must be sacrificed by de-stitching it into component parts.
Well, he's basically to Theo what Beatrix is to Iris. It was completely stupid that Theo's big climatic battle was with Beato as she's not really the antagonist of his character arc, at least when compared to Axmann, who's responsible for shooting Theo's parents, having him tortured, turning his sister against him,
and even shooting his love interest, so I kinda agree with the change.
What I'm wondering more of is why the change from a 40-year old evil commie-nazi to a 20-ish year old bishounen.
It's especially weird given that he now kinda looks like the Not!Lelouch from Eurofront from certain angles in the CGs.
They weren't meeting their pretty-boy quota?
Probably because it has multiple routes and he'll end up being the "Gilgamesh" in one of em. I could see him as Theo's primary rival in a Lise/Beatrix route just because he does seem to have an obsession with screwing those two.
>Do they paint their TSF's with BETA blood?
It's painted in the blood of traitors, backstabbers, and other fellow humans.
SM is basically the grimdark parts of humanity mentioned across various other works concentrated into one especially vicious story.
We were told that even despite BETA, humanity could not unite and thus still fought amongst itself. SM amplifies this with the conflicts between east and west Germany and the toll it takes on the cast.
We were told humans did shitty things to survive. SM amplifies this by having things like a girl breaking down and doing as she's ordered just to try and protect Theo.
We were told that it's hell on the frontlines. SM amplifies this by not just showing the fights with BETA, but the fights with other humans and how they're whittling each other down just as much as the BETA wears down humans.
We know that humans experimented on and tortured other humans. SM amplifies the torture side of things.
SM just dives into the shittiest parts of humanity at this time of crisis and runs with it. To an extent, it is realistic (as realistic as humanity being unlikely to ever truly unite against a common foe, despite what some /tg/ settings say otherwise, is).
>I could see him as Theo's primary rival in a Lise/Beatrix route just because he does seem to have an obsession with screwing those two.
Wouldn't it be better if it was an old man then?
I don't know. I've seen Hollywood do the same when adapting crap. People just think it's more compelling when rivals are around the same age. It doesn't actually make much sense within the story to de-age him either. Axmann was a crap leader who lacked the brilliance or charisma of a fast burner like Beatrix (even if he dominates in the political arena) so him being no higher than a LT. Colonel at 50-60 years old makes a certain amount of sense. He also has tons of connections and seems to have his hands in everybody's pot; believable for a 50 year old man, not so for a 20 something.
Damn I'm tempted to go from 400$ to 800$
The pilot jacket could be nice..
What are the chances of them including Altered Fable, The Day After, and all those side stories into a tier or something?
Not sure if the Happy End AF
where you can mate with Yuuhiitself is part of either.
TDA is also an unknown, but possibly not included. For sure though, TE and SM were stated to be their own separate projects, English versions pending on how well this Kickstarter turns out.
I now regret I chose to pose Ikaruga instead of 666th TSF Squadron.
Clearly, this is a sign.
Still missing the orange sensory bulbs.
I read this exact same argument over on the Chinese sites. They thought it was stupid to have a 25 year old Col when a 50 year old Col makes so much more sense.
Theo forces a
knife into her stomach and disembowels herin the finale. This being SM, her deathisn't instantaneous and her last moments are in terrible agony.It's why the waifu fags all hate Theo, that and his execution of his sister
Let's see how much of a semen demon you think she is once you know what she's actually saying: http://www.age-soft.co.jp/Product/sm/wac/index.htm?process=7&escurl=../character10_esc.html
You want to shake hands? Don't you know that my hands are smeared with blood?
I want to taste your despair as my fingernails cut (bite) into your throat.
What do you want?
A lot of talk for the guy I'm hunting.
[ Jokes about sucking your blood ]
[ Threatens suffering to your stomach ]
You admiring my legs?
Do you want to kneel?
[ Commanding you to prostate yourself before her ]
You think you can fool my eyes?
The state is always watching.
You son of a bitch,
nobody strangles me.
Let's see how happy you are when I'm strangling you.
Don't touch me.
So you want to die?
And I'm so lonely too.
I have long hair, so what?
To be admired by you is repulsive.
My National Security fortified suit looks good, doesn't it?
Just because we're wearing the same East German uniform doesn't change anything.
So you like the feel of my breast; you know, Stasi women hide cameras in there brassiers.
Do you like playing with me, or do you want me to play with you?
I'm going to make you squeal like a pig.
Granted, this is a little unfair considering it's supposedly Theo doing all the touching, which I don't think Beatrix would've respected very much.
Beatrix is really only a dom to people she doesn't like (or wants to troll). If the prequel's anything to go off of, she's actually kinda nervous and a little tsun around people she's crushing on.
So, apparently they're gonna sell 100 more F-22 models.
I'm really thinking about getting one, but damn, 300 dolans.
I also have no idea how someone could think the Takemikazuchi looks cooler than the Raptor. Heck I'm not even from the USA.
I seriously hoped for the next goal to be some kind of revisiting / improvement of the story. There're lots of places that need some more love.
But well, it's too much work, of course.
I don't even know
But Yui sure is near the top
Kei and Meiya are pretty cool too.
Original: Meiya, Marimo and Yuuko
TE: Yui, but Cryska's a close second
>Implying the Irisdinafags and Beatrixfags aren't going to turn these threads into a no-man's land when the anime airs.
It's gotten especially bad over on 2ch and Futaba with the prequel's release. Now that Beatrix is actually a legitimate choice for best girl instead of the troll option, the fighting has gotten way more heated
by their standards that is, which is still pretty tame compared to what's normal over here.
Eh, Iris is still by far the most popular over in Nipland. It's the second place slot that's actually contested.
I think I'll be complaining more when the inevitably butcher the designs.
Unless some nightmare with KS happens that causes them to have to pull pledges like the daki fiasco with Grisaia, 720k is guaranteed. I'm just hoping 720k being unlocked pushing more people to pledge and the final few days will give it enough of a bump to hit 900k. If the bump we get is similar to the one Clannad got at the end of its KS, 900k is definitely within reach.
> grimdark full of rape, torture and senseless bloodshed
from all the descriptions about SM, it sounds like some edgelord of the level of Hatred wrote this shit. if they're going to go over the top grimdark, they they should do it with style like 40k. otherwise it's just laughable, and they're not in on the joke
But Yuuko and Haruko come close

I thought this was going to be a close run thing, but it's actually happening
Is is true that Germans swim in the nude?
Do you think the stuff from the KS will be worth some money after it's done? Talking about the signed stuff especially, even though we don't know if they will be signed by hand. I'm thinking of maybe not opening my KS rewards thingie to increase value.
Some of the new VN characters were introduced in the stream earlier.
Probably. They have like three main routes (along with sub branches) anyways if you don't like the canonical one.
I know tank commander (between Stasi chick and Sgt Loli) is one of the MCs from Tombstone in Steel and never really interacted with the main SM storyline, so introducing him means that they've made changes to the story.
1st Lt Mirai Heisennberg
MSgt Kurt Gris Bell
Sgt Vivi Schwansteiga
Major Joachim Balck
Wondered what happened to him after his waifu died.
I'm not sure. Won't they have to declare some sort of value on the packages? Imagine a package worth 1500 dollaridoos land in your local customs office. These niggas will have a field day, literally 200+ dollars taxes.
But is the package worth 1500 dollars? The backer hasn't bought it for 1500 dollars, he's invested 1500 dollars into Muv-Luv. The actual package probably has a much lower value going by actual retail pricing of contents.
Good work, nerds.
Now I can play my Japanese porn games without giving anything in return.
Posted before in other thread
There are several milestones ahead that are going to increase dosh.
The first is not really a milestone, but people are still finding out about this last goal so we can expect this surge to keep going a little while longer, but probably not as strong.
The second is the revealing of the daki covers, that's going to settle things for whoever has been waiting for them, which is probably going to add something.
Then comes the time when we hit the 720k goal. That will most likely win the people over who wanted more value to their 150% kits.
After that we are going to have pay day which will most likely give some people the opportunity to either cast more money into the kickstarter or simply donate to it.
And then there is the last mysterious boost we may or may not receive in the very end
If we show true YAMATO DAMASHII it can be done.
Nothing is impossible.
I think a lot of them are hiding in the 1$ pladges. Now that we are pretty much sure that you won't be able to increase your pledge after the campaign ends, there are probably a lot of them who are going to upgrade. It might not be enough but it will help a shitload
Wait, you're telling me you made it through Extra (fucking lacrosse) and unlimited, and THEN decided that Alternative was a drag? The fuck is wrong with you nigga?
One fucking route for 60+ hours is too much.
Extra you could pick the girl, Unlimited was short as fuck and you could pick the girl. Alternative forced worst girl on you and even punished you heavily because you fucked best girl in Unlimited.
I'm at the preperation for the last mission in Alternative so it should be over in 5 hours.
Think the explosion in Fate threads on /a/, but Muv Luv across the entire planet.
I can't wait for the east german waifu.
Is anyone else getting a crazy obsession with Schwarzenmarken over the fact that Beatrix and Irisdina could have stayed best friends if Jurgen hadn't died?
It's gotten so bad that sometimes, I'll be awake for hours just wishing they all had a happily ever after and imagining happily family scenes of Jurgen and Beatrix.
Damn, thise new update was the final push I needed to buy it.
Fuck hell I won't get paid until november 7th and I only have $100 to spare in the meantime.
I'm seriously considering asking my friends of family for a loan.
Today was a really good day, let's see what these next 10 days can do.
And I thought I was the only one.
It really reframes the two and their conflict if you know just a little about the prequel (hopefully it'll be incorporated into the VN/anime).
If it's any consolation, there are plans for SM Extra where the two stayed friends/rivals instead of trying to murder one another. Some of the CG leaks have been posted here: >>132632076
That BETA strain reminds me of pic related.
Is it worth paying an additional $200 for the dakis?
That's a ridiculous amount they're charging.
I don't particularly want any of them, but being exclusive and by the original illustrator, it's tempting.
But $200 per daki, so $1200 for all 6. That's just fucking retarded.
I can see waifufags getting one, but anything more is just fucked.
Me too, but paying $1200 for six pillowcases is pretty retarded.
Even if they are exclusive.
How empty would you feel if the designs were sub-par, considering you don't even get to see them before paying.
How did you get that png?
>yfw when they also have expressions
The PNG was just something I upscaled from the wiki. Took me all of 2 seconds. As far as transparencies go, it's not really that hard, just a little time consuming. I'm not really a master at this.
Level up your google-fu anon. Took me literally a minutes to find it.
No, I'm fapping to dead Germans.
Is it possible to buy some of this stuff after the kickstarter? There are some things I was looking at but don't particularly want right now
But she is worst girl. Really. To this day I still don't understand why they still let her be leader and not Takeru as it is cleared everything went over her head since civil war arc. Friendship's sake perhaps?
Don't worry Kasumi.
I'm fapping to you.
I wonder who is molesting who in that picture.
No idea. I'd imagine if it follows standard RomCom tropes (which being Extra it almost assuredly would) that Beato and Jurgen would be the secondary couple to contrast against the more dramatic primary couple (Iris and Theo). Then again, Jurgen's had a very positive reception especially when compared to Theo, so it's not that improbable that he'd be MC. There's not very many details released so far about it, other than it exist, so it's all inference.
I'd say its pretty grimdark.
SM looks so stupid, like a 13 year old wrote a fanfic trying way too hard to be dark and edgy
The only really stupid moment in Alternative that certainly was not handled well imo was the
Sumika rape, it didn't feel like I was exploring someone's trauma, it just felt like an excuse to insert a weird fetish
I honestly hope they change that part in the localization
Other than that it was fine, but SM looks like the entire novel is going to be like that
I cringe every time I see that
>Alternative chronicles vol 1 translated, vol 2 day after translated but not available anywhere, vol 3+ never
>Altered fable full patch never
>TE VN translated never
>And last but not least, as a reward for everyone's efforts, we will be adding a bonus, limited edition Sumika Figma to every Collector's Box!
That's the $150 one right? $150 for the game and a figma sounds like a pretty decent deal.
If we get a bump in the last few days comparable to Clannad's bump (relative to the first few days), we'll most likely make it. It'll still be very close, though. I wonder what they're going to do in the last few days to get more people to pledge / raise their existing pledges.
>vol 2 day after translated but not available anywhere
It's right there on the AP blog.
I wonder if Axmann gave Beatrix the same "mentoring" he gave to Lise. She was forced to study under him, and while I don't think rape was involved, I could imagine some traumatizing shit going on to break her of her inhibitions.
I tried moonrunes and it didn't work
Guess I'll try again
who the fuck here hasn't pledged yet I want my goddamn codex.
