It's kind of hilarious that they barely showed her interacting with Kasumi on-screen, who cared about her as much as or more than Takeru.
>>
>>17252319
Personally, she’s less likely to romance because she doesn’t have much interesting characteristics attributed to her.

All she has or will ever be is the annoying childhood friend we feel sorry for not choosing. Plus, you can thank the writers for doing nothing with her and the other characters, so there’s that if you’re a critic.

I know it's probably going to end with their bodies being returned after Takayuki realizes he's "doing the wrong thing".

But Fate and Muv-Luv are both from early 2000s right? But why is Fate still thriving unlike ML?

Fate is far more expandable a property than Muv-Luv. It was also better marketed, and got an anime in the mid-2000s unlike Muv-Luv which helped to lock it into the gestalt.
>>
>>17265918
Muv-Luv does not have a shortage of options, but Nasu really enjoys writing (except Tsukihime apparently) while Yoshida is a lazy faggot that has no ideas beyond "I liked this anime"

because then you'd find out his translation is shit.

If you're gonna call out yoshida for coming up with muv luv after reading shit like the forever war, using nasu as an example is retarded as fuck.

nasu has mentioned countless pieces of fiction that inspired him, and the only reason he even wrote heavens feel was because he read kusarihime.

What's wrong with being inspired by different pieces of fiction? That happens to every writer in existence. Seriously, any author who tells you he or she didn't get inspired by something he/she experienced from something else is lying to you.
The inspiration part itself isn't a bad thing as long as you aren't blatantly ripping off something else without crediting the original source, in other words if you don't plagiarize. I don't see any of that with both F/SN and Muv Luv. Are you the same kind of special person who would call Evangelion a rip-off of Gunbuster or Mario a rip-off of Mickey Mouse?

-fourth of june: their shitty DMM mobage shuts down

-sixth of june: their parent company IXTL changes their name to Anchor.

-15th of september: They "delay" the muv luv 15th anniversary event they had planned for october, because they felt like it would end up shit and they want to host a good one instead.
February 2019 is now almost over and no further updates have been provided.

-At around the same time, they stop any and all livestreaming on their offical youtube channel. they had set up a B-team for regular community updates just weeks prior.

-11th of October: communication had ceased, until they suddenly announce a collab event for the SRW mobage.

-9th of November: their website suddenly updates with an user survey. It's filled with questions hinting at plans for more mobile games, and has some utterly strange question in it like: "would you play a muv luv game set in medieval europe or ancient china?"

-7th of december: they announce they aren't doing comiket or any other events in winter.

-1st of january 2019. they post a happy new year picture.

no further "news" has been posted since then.

You're braindead. The mobage destroyed all the content from /m/. Never post Kasumi with your garbage posts again.

Actually, what really killed the /m/ general (if it wasn't more or less doomed from the start from being a general in the first place) was shitposters driving people who actually contributed away, doomposters who kept saying the franchise was dead when the KS barely fucking started and some other shitposters who keep mentioning the same topics again and again because they know some people will bite (see >>17229899 and >>17266978 for one example). As much as I hate mobile games and don't give a damn about those gacha scams I'm pretty sure it didn't leave such an impression on the overal condition of this general.

what's happening is that they're going to disband.

VNs are dying as an industry because their userbase is being replaced by gachafags, and âge is incapable of producing good anime or games.

>doomposters who kept saying the franchise was dead when the KS barely fucking started
What quality content has age produced since they decided to pursue that baka gaijin dollar? I'll give you some time.

>>17272537
They are just platforms for girls. The average VN can handle like 5 archetypes while gacha can cast that net as wide as the sea.

>>17268864
I'm the kind of person who would say it's been 15 years and the only story he's written in the meantime is Muv-Luv Alternative without dimension hopping but with cyber newtypes and most of the content that isn't outright officially adopted fan fiction is a combination of rehash and directly parodying popular anime.
>>
>>17272352
Fuck off back to Discord and dont come back
>>
>>17272537
they don't exactly share the same audience, but that's the problem.

VNs are mostly aimed at teenagers and young adults. the teenages and young adults from the early 2000s when VNs were the most succesful are now old as fuck and forced to become successful normies that have way less time to consume VNs, or they already killed themselves.

this was always the case of course, but the problem is the new generations grew up in a world of smartphones and instant acces to endless entertainment. they have very little interest in buying expensive and long as fuck VNs that they have to read on their PCs or consoles.

then you have the fact that several of the succesful and widely popular gacha games are designed to be light-VNs, already taking up a decent chunk of the reader's time with their story updates. gachashit is also constantly trending on social media, further appealing to the young demographic that grew up with them.

honestly the biggest downfall for VNs was probably the fact that nobody fucking buys phone games. LNs are doing just fine because they fit into the mobile lifestyle.

what klilled ML is that the truth is, we never needed more muv-luv after alternative at all.

by that I don't mean that everything after that was shit, because it was mostly decent to good, but the company could have taken the fame and succes they gained from ML and used it for new projects.

instead they focused entirely on muv-luv and are now seemigly paying the price with nothing to fall back on.

Pretty much this. âge used to have other branches that did other stuff. They rode on Alternative's success far too much without producing anything of actual worth outside extremely niche fandom. Even then, the Japanese fans, the only ones that actually matter to them, didn't exactly like most of the products. They wasted every opportunity to have motion, let the iron go cold. They don't have a presence on the market at this time, they don't have any relevant products out and all of their brands and IPs are stagnant.
With so many ML products going bust, they're going back to KGNE with that remake and trying to make some bank. Avex probably didn't have to spend too much money to take them over. âge needs to drop all the baggage they have made for themselves, it's a dead weight around their necks at this moment. Reboot the whole shit with an anime or something.

Fuck off with your reboot cancer, the problem is that for 13 fucking years fans have wanted a proper sequel to this humans-versus-aliens sci-fi epic but all the dumbasses ever put out was garbage about humans fighting each other over retarded shit.

A proper sequel can serve as a soft-reboot point, as long as it functions as an individual piece apart from its predecessor. 13-years is too long just to serve a fanbase with diminishing revenues. They can either find a balanced way to expand the consumer base, or go bust.
TDA was never good though.

have you seen the other muv-luv anime?

there's zero fucking chance a company as seemigly broke as âge manages to get someone to produce a worthy alternative adaption.

infact, during one of kouki's alternative streams one of the users posted in the chat about how much he'd like to see the siege on sadogashima animated. ships everywhere, lasers out the ass, TSFs flying around, bombardments. you know what his response was?

"If alternative got animated they'd probably cut all of it out."

Do you really think they can get that down properly?

I mean, I'm asking seriously here. This is a company that poured money into making VN adaptations of light novel material, when nowadays it usually would be the other way around, make a LN as an original work/to ride the wave of the original work's success and let someone else buy the license/rights and use THEIR resources to produce something meatier.

I mean, yeah, the series' home medium was in VNs, but was there really a need to keep revisiting it, especially with them being rich in neither money nor time? Not to mention putting all that time and effort into making TEVN and SMVN after years of faffing about with Chronicles and TDA. TE stagnated and died twice in written format before they finally committed the story in VN format years after their hiatus, I don't think that could ever be interpreted as any kind of good sign regarding their media development process(es). They're a company, not just a single writer angry about the fans' waifu choices.

The PV they first released so many years ago as an animated roadmap of their planned projects now serves as a monument to every mistake made in either their business or development decisions. What remains of Operation Zero today?

Because as they are now, I see no way out for either company or series. Insofar as I can tell they have no desire to continue their remaining works and those are the ones that will take up a lot of their time and effort making assets for their VN engine in return for comparatively little profit, unless a second tide of popularity rises out of nowhere to make Muv-Luv famous again, or they make non-VN spinoffs for cheap to give themselves a safety net, or some hidden boost comes from elsewhere. It is not as if their VNs are some kind of pathing monster of a narration either.

Most series that try to take flight seldom get the chance to choose when they want to ride off into the sunset, but if things remain as they are, then 4 - 5 years down the road it will be impossible to see age and Muv-Luv as nothing else but having been left in a roadside ditch. I mean, I'm all down for a revival, but as things are I can see nothing for them. A KNGE remake will do nothing for them if they keep sticking to the same practices they have done.
>>
>>17280116

That was the third major fuckup their artist was caught for and the lazy tracing was reflected in the pathetic consistency and quality of his art (Yifei literally could not have her breast size even classified until the anime because she was traced from such divergent sources), so they can hardly blame anyone but themselves for being scummy. TE was on the train to the trash heap as soon as they were too cheap and/or lazy to keep Iizuki.

>>17280043
TE is not unusual as an LN>anime>ADV multimedia project, there's a lot of IPs that have done that and some of them were fairly successful in the same time period.

I assume âge chose to do that because they knew most visual novel readers aren't exactly intelligent, let alone people who would read classic literature, are capable to read between the lines and don't need to be spoon fed all the time (for people who can only understand buzzwords. they're not autistic).

Not that most fans of anime and manga would actually read anything that holds more merit than "LOL FANSERVICE OVERUSED JOKES AND ARCHETYPES AMIRITE?!"

>>17291899
If they did everything right they wouldn't even be in the VN industry anymore because they only made them out of budget convenience rather than a particular love for the form, as if the hyper linearity and single love interests of most of the things they've made in the last 15 years wasn't a clue.

That's not what they did at all, they just rushed to redraw it the minimum amount to change the artist credits in house. Maybe Sugihara taking it over contributed to some of the Kiminozo related spinoffs being delayed but whatever.

That's allegedly the case but some of the CGs are nearly indistinguishable from previously existing art.

Pretty fucking funny thing to fire a guy for tracing but then trace all the shit he drew that you didn't throw out for being traced so that his art is technically no longer in the game, but it's okay because you own it.

Upon rereading the mail, that does seem like it could be true, on the other hand there's nothing here saying that they *aren't* working on it.

In melodies and what people usually mean by AF is Before the Shimmering Time Ends.
>>
>>17313515
Ah.
>>
>>17313515
What happens when the shimmering time ends?
>>
>>17313566
dream scenario that continues off of Final Extra universe, everything is literally just a dream so it doesnt matter
what actually happens is that BETA come to final extra world and are coming for kasumi

Ah yes, I do remember reading a synopsis of what Strike Frontier's endgame story was going to be like.
>>
>>17313865
I'm just a mad the game was garbage
>>
>>17313449
So, they're going with the All-Age version, have they said anything about an adult version, like they did with Alternative?
>>
>>17316111
The stretch goal for uncensored version only extended to Extra/Unlimited and Alternative, so I wouldn't expect anything at all. Maybe someday, someone'll take the official translation and apply it to the adult version but that's never going to happen because we can't have nice things.
>>
>>17316156
Sad but true.
>>
>>17316111
There is no 18+ version of the photon games, even if some of the individual stories had one.
>>
>>17316156
>uncensored
you mean
>mostly restored version
there's still censored content in the directors cut version that the original release 15 years ago didn't have censored. I think this was the part that pissed me off the most. They mentioned creating "the best version of the muv-luv trilogy" but it's inferior to the 15 year old release content wise even with the directors patch. Just goes to show how little they care.
>>
>>17315028
I'm more interested in the story scenarios, and to that end I'm really quite upset.

Why did you even bother replying? Fuck off back to /vg/ and stay in your gacha thread, you stupid crossboarding nigger.

there literally is no adult version of the photon games, they were always shitty console ports.

maybe the stories coming from supplement in flowers had h-scenes in it's original release, but everything else in flowers was all ages on PC too.
>>
>>17318892
Pretty sure only the card game in Supplement had H scenes.
>>
>>17318892
photon is literally just a console collection release of various Muv-Luv fandiscs. Some of the fandisc content had H. A notable example would be Before the shimmering time ends which had over 20 h-scenes.

I think this sums things up pretty well.
>>
>>17318965
I'm aware, which is why I said flowers. time is in melodies.

either way the community should have called them out on translating the photon collections as soon as they announced it. I want to know who even came up with the retarded idea.

Is there any way to bust into age's .rio files? I'd love to somehow grab the music from Kimi ga ita kisetsu (the original) and I can't find it anywhere online.
>>
>>17320532
I'm still waiting for someone to upload the Stand A Chance pastiche to YT already!

After a bit of searching, I don't think a single person knows how to extract audio out of age's games.
I was looking at the original Kimi ga out of curiousity and really enjoyed this song:

I guess I'll have to record them all and upload them at some point, if I can get the game to not crash after two minutes.

You have been fed links over the past 5 years, but you just keep repeating the same whining arsehole. Eat a dick.

Anybody have a screenshot of Ayamine's "Don't get mad, get glad"? I can't make my own because that line isn't in the Steam version.

Yes to YT several times you whiny little bitch. That's why people remember it. Obviously you left your brains in your mama when she shat you out.
