Muv-Luv kickstarter is at 1.2 million. Last 4 hours to get your pledges in for weeb stuff that you would be ashamed to show even your closest friends.
Everything will be canceled on the last minute.
Phys Codex never

Schwarzesmarken VN never
Forefront NEVER EVER

>$300k over "final goal"
I'm hoping they will include TDA.
Remember, they are working with the same developers who had trouble with their budget back when Alternative was first supposed to be released, even if the original was the most sold piece of entertainment in Japan in 2003, even more than Fate/Stay Night in that year.
best germans never
I think some funds were from unconfirmed sources and fakes that the total funding got reduced from 106 million to 90+ million.
Basically there were bunch of people riding the hype to make the kickstarter pass through 100 million wall but didn't actually have the money for it.
Who started this kickstarter? The literal owners of the franchise, or just some middleman Western company that wants to translate it? According to that pie chart posted on the kickstarter, it says 15% of the money goes for the license, so does that mean the Japs only get 15% of the initial goal for the rights, or what?
>ends up with $250000
>and some $1000000 on the side..
>âge testing the waters to see if they have an audience in the west.
They must be crazy excited with this result, then.
I hope this encourages âge to push for an anime project, a sequel, something. I don't think it would be too far-fetched given Yoshimune's comments in recent interviews and how well received the kickstarter was.
>not getting the dakis
>not getting the jackets
>not getting the plastic crap
>not getting the physical codex
Reminder that most of the people who will probably buy the VN funded the kickstarter, so there won't be many new sales when the VN comes out.
Well a lot of money goes to Age which is good for me considering part of this is their venture.
I would love to see more VNs from Age in the future.
Also I hope this proves how much fan-translation and piracy in a way helps the industry, I doubt this would have had the attention it got if it was never translated.
There lots of good VNs not translated that /a/ and the western world are completely unaware of.
You sure are jelly as hell. I didn't support it because they were translating but that I can give some money to the Japanese company, I can show my support for something I enjoyed from a free fan translation.
Already did, together with some other merchandise.
Still supported the Kickstarter in hope Age will get the clue and releases rest + future games in English too.
Phew, finallyglad the transaction went through, now I don't have to worry about whimping out and lowering my pledge. Now we just have to deal with the grueling wait for our swag.
What are the odds I can buy the game when it comes out as limited edition, get the stuff at the $150 tier? Thought I had a few more days on the kickstarter, but it looks like I'm fucked now.
>Really want to win that trip to Japan
>No I'll never win
At least some Twitter spam is a small price for the possibility. Though I don't even know who I'd bring with me. My Mom probably wouldn't care about the weeb stuff I'd check out, my Dad would just want to drink, my brother would hate it.
If you want the figma you can buy it right now. The digital games are going to be sold on steam and you will be able to pirate all the digital stuff. If you want physical copies of the games and the artbook you'll have to search ebay when those are released I guess.
Patiently waiting for when I choose.
Yuuko'll be getting a Daki for DKM48, but I agree with you.
I hate how all the elevens are going to vote for her in the upcoming SM Daki Contest. I hope Lise, Beatrix, or even Gretel win the vote, but the Japs have a massive hard on for Iris. Not that I blame them (personally, her designs a bit on the generic/boring side but she has a great personality), but she's already got 2 dakis so far.
It doesn't really matter; it's not like I'd be buying them anyways
Beatrix is the heroine of BiS, so there's a chance she'll get one (albeit her teenage design). I'll stew my foot and eat it if Lise doesn't get a daki eventually considering she's even more popular than Katia.
People were already backing off on voting for Irisdina last week because she just got one already, as far as I can tell.
It's the only explanation for getting blown the fuck out by Marimo I can come up with.
Dropped 80$ for physical. I still have to slog through extra. Meiya a best.
It was a tough battle, wasn't it?
Took long enough. It's been years since everyone was waiting for Ixrex translations. Still a pain to get scans though.
TACHIAGARE, KEDAKAKU MAE, SADAME WO UKETA SENSHI YO. SEN NO KAKUGO MI NI MATOI, KIMI YO, OOSHIKU HABATAKEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>muh chivalry, muh samurai
Hmm yes, perfect
Marimo's pretty popular. Also, nearly every ML fan has played the original trilogy, but not every ML has played/watched/read the spinoffs. So basically, if you run a major character from a spinoff against a major character from the trilogy, the trilogy character usually ends up taking it.
I voted for Marimo, so I may or may not be biased.
I'm looking forward to seeing people on steam playing this game and asking them to talk to me when they get traumas.
Here anon, have a nice relaxing image to help you feel better.
Damn, that's a lot of unfamiliar art in that OP/trailer at the end. I assume it's from extra art Bou drew for the all-ages and PS3 releases, right? I can't wait to replay this when it gets released.
Post pledges. My only regret is that
I didn't go big or go home and buy the $800 Superior Bundle C
240 is over 330 Australian dollarydoos so I was really stretching my budget to pledge this much. But I wanted the codex, I love nerd bibles
If I wasn't drowning in student loans, I would have gone for the 4K tier just to get my own artwork of Yuuhi.
Hoping to be able to add another Grab Bag and 1-2 more Ruitare plushies. There's a seamstress I know who I'm going to ask to make a bigger version of them, and one is necessary for sacrifice. I also want to turn a spare Valkyries Medallion into a lanyard attachment.
Got all I wanted.
Never using MyVanilla Visa cards again.
âge themselves don't own the licenses to everything in the game--shit in Japan is often screwy like that. Add in exclusivity agreements like that mentioned in the Kickstarter FAQ:
>Before anything else, everyone needs to know there's an exclusivity license for the trilogy's Japanese scripts
I caved and upgraded from the collector box to the Daki tier at the last minute.
Is it better to get the Vita box considering you still get a digital PC download with the Vita package as well? So the Vita box gives the ability to play on both Vita and PC but the PC box only gives you PC access?
The PC box is DRM free, so you can install on as many PCs if you want.
Personally, I'm fine with the digital copy on STEAM and would rather have the physical Vita copies, so I can play it on my Vita.
Since this is vaguely related and there is absolutely no where else I can ask this:
So Johnnie totally died at the end of the Starship Troopers OVA right? That ending sequence was obviously his view of the afterlife
What are VNs like on the Vita? Readable or is it a bit cramped on the small screen? Leaning toward Vita at the moment for the most bang for my buck but I won't bother if I'm going to be squinting to read the text
The Vita has a huge and crisp screen, you won't have to worry about having to squint.
I played through both Danganronpa games just fine, and they're basically VNs. The Vita also has a ton of VNs for it in Japan.
>I found that, that scene was way more impactful then chomp or pomf. She brought a tear to my eye.
It had a lot of impact on me, which made the pomf hit me even worse. It doesn't help that I had somehow avoided spoilers about MUV-LUV entirely, so everything caught me by complete surprise.
Actually found old chat logs on my laptop from when I got to the CHOMP scene and the scenes after. Was talking to a friend about the original trilogy, as we both played through it.
Why the fuck would anyone be an EOP in this day and age?
Stop being an EOP and you'll get to enjoy all the anime games. Also you won't have to pay for existing translations on KS and won't have to stomach god-awful machine translations for side materials.
thank you anon for reminding this for me...
>the figure is of the worst girl
I didn't back it, I'll just buy the game when it comes out.
My waifu, pic related. Although I would really like either a Yui or Inia one too.
I learned some moon, but to master it to be able to read as fast as in English or in your native language is a feat that would take years of dedication that, frankly, not many people have if they have an unrelated job. The people I know who can actually read moon decently are almost all linguistics graduates. There're about two people who just got the hang of it themselves, but they still don't have jobs.
At my level I can read most VNs in moon with a dictionary, but unfortunately it takes ages so if there is a decent translation I'd very much prefer that. Plus recent PC re-releases often include all of the console-only upgrades that the originals didn't have.
tl;dr fuck jobs
Hopefully the excess cash will be used to ensure the translation is high quality. There's a lot of merch they need to send out so I'm guessing a large portion of the money they collected will be going towards fulfilling the backer rewards as well.
Huh. The estimated date of release for the first game is March/April 2016. Alternative and the physical stuff is September/October.
>lets wait for someone to take the huge risk of investing shitload of money and time just so masses can pirate, sorry, i meant try before buying and then make some excuses about translation quality after they're through the whole VN
This is not something that's easily solves.
This way at least no individual loses gigantic amounts of money and there's a chance people actually get something out of it.
Also Japanese content creators might start noticing there's actually a market in the west and maybe, just maybe plan accordingly with their future projects.
She is just little slow.
I wonder where all of the ixrec-haters have gone, before this was announced everyone shat on his translation (which is fine enough if you ask me) and now everyone shits on the idea of the official translation when a translation already exists.
>do a kickstarter for a VN which had already been translated
>get 1.2 milion dollars
>hire the first nip-english hybrid for translation
>give him 100 bucks
>make all that overpriced fanservice shit you promised
>get fucking loaded
they are fucking geniuses
I gave 1 buck too though
Is it normal that the font keep hanging randomly like that?
>Funny thing is when it does that the font for the log also changes accordingly..
That's when I noticed this that I wondered if it wasn't just a bug.
Man Ilfriede is cute
>Aside from Kickstarter + BackerKit + bank transfer + shipping costs, there are also quite a few errored pledges at the moment and the majority of our comrades belong to higher tiers.
I wonder if it's just because those people failed to contact their bank beforehand to give them a hands up that they're going to spending a couple thousand dollars on a website.
I wasn't able to get the money together for the signed collectors edition before it ended. I'll be stuck with the ghetto ass non signed version via backerkit.
TACHIAGAAAREE KEDAKAKU MAE SADAME O UKETA SEEEENSHII YOO TATOE KIZUTSUITEEE CHIKARA TSUKITEMOOOOOOOOOO
come on guys, we all know who bestTSF is
>"Shiranui is too mainstream, I prefer the Fubuki"
How does it make you feel the only kill a Fubuki has ever garnered was on an unsuspecting f-15 who had his back turned engaging another target?
oh, that is what I referring to, a type-94, not a f-15, my bad.
In any case I'm not entirely sure why the Fubuki exists when I'd bet the f4, and the Gekishin are probably higher performance and combat ready
and her RHEAL BAT-ESS former comrades in the Fuji Instructional Unitcan score kills on Shiranui in a non-XM3 Gekishit, anon. Granted the cockpit has had the latest block upgrades, but still.
Cryska has a good looking body, but she's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
Fortified suits are too sexy, there has to be a law against it.
That law would be dangerous to my dick.
I had a dream.
A dream of Cryska and Yui having angry, lesbian sex, without knowing the meaning of "all-ages".
I had a dream.
A dream of Inia risking her hymen and offering Yuuya her virginity for the sake of love.
The boundary between dream and reality feels like seeing what I saw as I wake.
I think...only God knows which it was.
But I still ask myself...was there someone I could've undressed?
I wonder, was that why I came to this suit in the first place?
If this was my unavoidable destiny,
then what exactly was I to this world?
Ero scenes...the girl's virginities...and Yuuya's...
I still wonder if I could've changed them.
If I'd had a strong will to dissolve what I was meant to dissolve...from the start...
Then maybe there was something only I could've done.
I think there was.
At the very least...I'll live on...and try to undress all of them.
I want to be pressed and end this celibacy everyone gave up on.
I think I can do that.
The semen left inside the balls...the unbroken hymen...the people I'm worn by...
I'll undress them all with my chemicals.
I should be able to do something.
There must be something.
Sex won't lose.
I'll never lose.
Reminder that Ixrec missed translating a critical line from Takeru's speech at the end of Unlimited, just before "I think... only God knows which it was", and this caused the loss of a certain perspective about Alternative's epilogue.
She is Takeru's waifu.
Noble confidants don't need to apply.
She would never want to even touch shit like you.
That image is clearly a forgery.
>We will also release an official patch for the remaining important elements from Muv-Luv. More details will be provided at a later date.
Do you people actually support that? no wonder you keep getting butchered versions of everything and you always will.
I am glad i didn't skip my reps or i would be pretty depressed.
I wouldn't mind having a 3some with Yui and Inia; actually who am I kidding, I would love to have a 3some with Inia and Yui.
Pic very related
Damn, I could barely understand that shit.
Altered Fable's H scenes were godly. It's shameful they won't be included on the discs themselves but have to be patched in. Fuck those amerifat puritans, they wouldn't buy Chinese fapgames anyway. I don't understand why the KS felt the need to pander to the normalfag crowd. I won't believe for a secod any of the high tier pledgers (i.e. those who actually carried the project) would have called their support off if the H content was left were it was.
That's your meat rod doing the plowing there, so don't play innocent, Takeru.
Besides, the scenes are cute as fuck. Goes double for the blow job, where Kasumi ties up the ears of her stuffed bunny and turns him away from the sight, since he's not supposed to look at the two of em going at it. The poor bastard.
>not sexualizing children is a bad thing
With that bloody budget they are able to create another Muv Luv. Maybe finally end that shitty spin off and draw a conclusion of the series.
I want to fuck her
with a CIWS
The full title is Muv luv Alternative Total Eclipse, so no. Unlimited and TE are split timelines.
So I'm the one who care about this or I'm just slowpoking and everyone finished it already
Feels good knowing best girl has the best chance to live a long life and birth many strong Eishi to combat the BETA across the galaxy.
Muv-Luv has been of interest for /a/ for years. It's a multimedia franchise with a new upcoming anime in the works, so it's perfectly fine to have threads. Or in other words, fuck off.
You and I both know Yui isn't going to take any D except Yuuya's. It's such a shame that such a body designed solely for breeding and nurturing children will never be used for its true purpose.
The only chance she has is if Yuuya doesn't fall for Inia as well.
I don't remember the number, but it is like 20 years or so after, a parade in Virginia where they are showing the ultra top secrets TSFs in public without a care, and it seems Yuuya in fact is also there, although under a false name
I could've had a Raptor if fucking Kickstarter hadn't rejected my credit card. In the end I had to resort to PayPal to get anything at all, but PayPal backers are treated as subhumans who are granted no access to limited tiers.
I HATE IT.
>Yukarin get's picked to voice Beato
>Drawing of her with Nanoha hair comes out
Somehow, I never made the connection until now.
Sumika get's shat on because of the Sumikaposter.
>she isn't really the worst girl
>I chose Sumika
They're just a set of side stories set in the MLverse. Some of them are extremely important to the main series (especially in SM's case) but most of them are just random little stories.
It'll definitely have to be this month. I wouldn't be surprised if we got a new PV during tomorrow's stream, in fact. They'll be conducting a "Favorite/Hottest SM Character" poll (winner gets a daki) in the morning, which would be an excellent time for them to release a new PV for the hype train.
>"Favorite/Hottest SM Character" poll
Well, Beatrix is definitely getting my vote. Iris already has two dakis so she can lose this one.
Who the hell are all you fags hoping gets the win?
Semi-regular reminder that Elfen Blaze never.
I don't think I have the mental strength to read it again.
He'll steal your nee-chans and imoutos.
Probably, but I still think it would add something to the story to have the characters speaking the proper language.
This is coming from someone who can't speak German, so I don't know how well I could determine good and bad German VO.
I always like that touch. In fact the English redubbing of the lines in ML have me hyped even though it's super minor. But when they accurately have multiple language portrayed it gets me hard. Russian by russians, Japanese by Japanese, Germany by Germans, etc.
Why redub them? They were absolutely hilarious and, while they broke atmosphere, I think the most memorable point in the game wasn't the atmosphere, the plot, the girls, or anything like that, but HOOOMAN BWAAAAAAAAINS!
It's bad acting, hilariously bad. The translation was even worse, it was like they translated every single thing literally. Japanese phrases just don't work in German. Use appropriate German phrases, please. German can be a great poetic language, no need to force unfitting Japanese phrases into it.
Non-Deutschfag here, but I find the speaking intonations to be quite awkward except for Irisdina's lines at the start and, unsurprisingly, Theodor screaming "God help us!" (?) towards the end. I assume those intonations are unnatural?
But fuck that noise, since it's November now, Dies Irae all the way.
Some anon posted on /m/ a while back indicating that got hired by age to be on the German-language side of things. He confirmed that the SM PV German lines were called in via Skype. /m/ asked him to pass on several things to such as Valky[l|r]ies and whatever the correct romanization of "Ri-zu" was (it was Lise, and the SM website got updated accordingly. Based.)
Then he appeared at an age stream as he implied in the that thread, and got introduced to the fans by Kouki.
