http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/Yumekichi11/Picture%2033/h443tgv_zpseff8348a.gifTotal Eclipse is a side story spinoff set inside the setting of Muv luv Alternative . It is frankly not very good, and has nothing to do with the main series.
(NSFW Warning: Gore)
No thank you. Total Eclipse was one of the few Mecha anime I outright dropped after a couple episodes, I'd rather not see more of that shlock...
And this is on top of the fact that the anime itself was just plain bad.
But the Muv Luv series does illustrate one of my bigger problems with VNs being called 'well-written' and not 'well-written for a VN'. You could have the most fantastic setting, or the most tragically violent, but no matter what, you're not escaping the male power-fantasy nature of it (well, aside from Otomones which are Yaoi fan-bait). The entire genre can barely operate outside of the Harem genre and their scope almost never extends past the male protagonist's immediate circle of associate + concubines save for his own personal antagonist(s), and it colors the hell out of the narrative.
That said, I'm always up for something that has the US nuke the living hell out of Canada just because we baka-gaijins are always looking for an excuse to let the
ultimate evil/unforgivable sins
/nukes fly and proceed to sit back and happily munch down on our Freedom Fries and Apple Pies while we watch the rest of the world fucking burn. #FuckEngland #HappyFourth #BakaGaijin #CanadaDay
