>>
>>20216725
Truthfully I could buy the idea of having enough greenery to resemble idyllic normalcy. You could probably pen a whole psycheval about trainee mental health being affected by the environment they march around in on the regular, and while an argument can be made about desensitizing them to the sight of wasteland, I feel much a similar point can be made about reminding people, or even showing the generation born into the nightmare, just what they're fighting to get back.

...but yeah it's been a while but I do think that much green doesn't show up outside of island survival and the coup, come to think of it.

can't avex just hire back nanase hikaru for the ost? or they just didn't want to because she's affiliated with lantis? she's way more fit for the job than evan.

Does Takeru ever talk about missing his parents in unlimited or Alt? Going through unlimited now and I don’t think he’s said that yet. Could be wrong though.
>>
>>20216891
I've noticed in a lot of VN's including Muv-Luv that the MC's parent's are rarely mentioned. I think it's a cultural thing.
>>
>>20216955
Because NEETs hate their parents and seeing mentions of them in their games makes em seeth

eh. it was like my safest prediction for this episode. i'm a bit disappointed they're adapting it straight instead of going full balls to the wall connecting the pieces from extra/unlimited and alternative. it's fine now. my expectations are in check that this will just be pretty much an adaptation with the manga and that's all right with me.

I really liked it too. That ED was shit though.

at this point it's tradition for the character animation to be QUALITY.
>>
>>20217603
It was adequate to set up the basics of who Takeru is and have him join the squad. Could have done with more action of him fighting post the unlimited ending.
>>20217610
At least it didn't end up with him in the TFS within 1 episode so at least we know it's not trying to get to Kashgar in 11 episodes.

anyways, TE had LOTS of fucking QUALITY for the TSFs that got fixed in the BRs, but this Alt adaptation at least seems to be paying more attention to the machines to avoid such crappy shots
>>
Second Ep was ok. I actually think the animation quality is better than the first episode, the shading and stuff is less 2D. The first ep had many points when I thought I was watching TE again, but not this ep.
That fucking trip up the hill.... I'm crying as I write this, guys...
>>
I give the episode a 6/10. Fun infodump but just felt kinda boring otherwise. The VN was a lot more expressive especially with Takeru freaking out at the soldiers. But I get that's because of the pacing.

Not to say it was perfect: the pacing was a bit fast, they made Yuuko wayyyy less snarky and sarcastic, some of the voices are a big adjustment, and sometimes it seemed like the animators had a hard time keeping characters on model but [spolier]my wife is beautiful in animation AND is now beyond a shadow of doubt, the winner of the TakeruBowl in Unlimited

S1 ending with Chomp, S2 ending with Sadogashima and then either a 3rd or a pair of movies for Yokohama and Kashgar would be perfect.

I think it's decent enough, I have no idea how anybody that didn't play Extra/Unlimited makes any sense at all out of the first 5 minutes even if they explain it a bit after that. I know if I wasn't already in it for the long haul I'd probably have tapped out pretty fast.

It definitely feels like it wasn't made for people who didn't already know Extra/Unlimited. Ep 01 seemed like an okay intro but now with all the jargon and the flashbacks that newcomers won't get it's just hard to imagine someone new actually considering sticking around for the long run.

They got nice animation on the mechs last episode and probably the next one with TFS mock battles.
It seems like the studio is hard shafting the 2d talking scenes in order to pay for the action sequences.

Stick with the VN. Everyone in their life witnessed one or more bad or mediocre adaptation from a cherished source material.

Now I'm just confused why they made the first ep the way it was instead of trying to (I dunno, somehow) fit the ending of Unlimited or something to fucking establish the narrative

With context sure I get what's happening but I'll be damned if I'm going to pretend this is watchable for anyone without prior knowledge.

They're not going to get the flashbacks to either Extra or Unlimited, what even is the point?

Depends on how much those companies are actually spending. You can have a smaller committee and a bigger budget and usually it shows. This is a cheap project in which most of the money were spent for the CG with the 2D stuff as an afterthought. Characters in the background seems to be made of toothpicks.

As some anon suggested above it would have been better to have the first episode as the end of Unlimited. Casual viewers would have just took it for a bad ending with the main character going back in time without the jumbled exposition dump. Then they could have added later flashbacks to add details of Unlimited timeline.
>>
>>20218154
Because VN fans are all here.
>>
>>20218156
nah. they could've just started episode 2 like a "natural" isekai with Shirogane Takeru introducing himself and having a mini speech about beating the BETAs or whatever like the end of unlimited and then flash forward to him waking up in bed going "Huh, what the wasn't I just fighting the BETA?....haha what a weird dream...wait shouldn't Sumika be waking me up already?"
Also a little disappointed they didn't adapt him going outside and going full "Fuck this wasn't a dream...."

Money reason:
Avex using ML as a way to get young talent experience and exposure

they got Meiya back to voice a shitty gacha game in 2018
>>
>>20217921
How the FUCK does a VN have better animation than an anime?
>>
>>20217686
because the anime writers never read TDA lmao, the niggers probably never even read the VN and just adapted by cutting shit out straight from the original script
>>
>>20218313
Because the VN was made with soul and they actually got some famous animator for all the anime cutscenes whos name I can't remember because I'm gay. Just wait until you can compare the Kashgar final in 2 years.
>>
What is the general consensus on the second episode?
>>
>>20218312
That's a tiny commitment compared to what could be a multi-season anime and eventually several upcoming games.

I love her voice an unreasonable amount but she basically *only* ever voiced Meiya. It's clearly not how she makes her living.
>>
whelp this second episode into getting dumped, quite a wednesday!!
>>
>>20218328
They better bring her back for Integrate

TO BE FAIR, in this shot they were saluting for Alternative V.

Being left on earth as bug food would certainly explain the "my feet hurt" attitude we see here.
>>
>>20218313
Because the VN has 2 minutes of animation versus 12+ episodes?

Are you seriously asking this question

why did they think that destroying hive 01 was so important again? They didn't even know about the superior
>>
>>20218336
Wasn't the colony ships part of Alternative V not supposed to work anyway? The USA wanted to use G Bombs en masse because they underestimated the side effects and the other nations were not going to let them do that unless there was a hope of survival for humanity in the case Earth was destroyed. The USA never believed that the colony ships would succeed in their mission. They did in the end, but it wasn't expected.

Because the 00-unit got them data that showed that ONLY Kasghar has any thinking ability and Master Bater also got humanity's data.

>>20218350
I believe by that point they had figured out through Sumika that the hives reported back to their originator to formulate plans, and because of the base invasion they had to do their invasion of it as fast as possible or it likely wouldn't have worked.

It would be a real shame if the old VAs aren't brought back for Integrate and Resonative. I think that would be the final straw for me.

>>20218370
Does mikhail have voices? At least partial? I guess you'll know if they're replaced when it releases since that dev team already told the anime designs to fuck off, so if they use the anime voices it's pretty much confirmed.
>>
>>20218350
center of the hivemind brain on earth and a very important strategical hive to take out, very little to be gained and very much to be lost in taking out the the ones around it without kashgar destroyed.
the entire world was kinda gambling on the alternative IV forces being able to take it out at that point with the full scale attack on eurasia iirc.
>>
>>20218358
>>20218369
>>20218362
i remember the whole Sumika's blood going through the hive and then back to the superior, but I didn't remember her getting any information back from the exchange other than the dreams.. So I guess they figured that if they killed the hive they could just kill the rest of the hives while they were stupid? what if 02 instantly grew a superior lol..
>>

It is as >>20218383 says, it was a full gamble, no one was sure it would work and it paid off, one silver of hope in the bleakness that was the aftermath of the Yokohama base battle

Avex is trying to launch MuvLuv as a fresh multimedia franchise. There is no way they do not go all in on the vocal reset - they want young talent that will work for cheap that they can tie to the franchise for what might be decades.
>>
I just watched the 2nd episode. Eh, the infodump was expected, as the same happens in the VN anyways
the new voices are ok I guess, but Meiya's will always be a glaring point, as her pitch in the VN is VERY distinctive and the new seiyuu just sounds too different

because they knew that the first Hive was somehow involved in how the beta acted

after the yokohama bloodbath, during which the beta began to use ACTUAL battle tactics instead of classic zerg rush, Yuuko discovers that the readings of the 00 unit went both ways, so the beta would end up gaining the required data to counter the latest human tech developments that could somehow even the field (the XM3 and the Susanoo), reason why the original Hive had to fucking die right there and then, otherwise humanity would have been fucked in 1 year or even less
>>
>>20218413
Because that's not how this works at all. The VN anime segments, second for second, have way more budget thrown at them. That's what matters for that.

>why does the anime exist
for the 99.99% of the VN that wasn't animated.
>>
>>20218425
Then maybe you shouldn't animate that .01% at all if it's going to look like such complete dogshit in comparison. Give it enough extra attention so that your anime isn't losing on the animation front to a fucking book.

Marimo DID have experience as pilot
problem is her very first sortie everyone was killed except for her and the same story repeated when she was assigned to any other squad in the Asian continent

she eventually requested to be a instructor because 1) her dream was always to be a teacher (basically, her Extra iteration) and 2) so she can try her best to train people and avoid other shitters from even getting to a TSF, making other people getting killed and ending up like her

the latter is why she builds a reputation as a super harsh instructor

The second episode feels like starting in the middle of a new arc of an ongoing story (because it is). They didn't try to change things up to make it more digestable for secondaries.
They clearly made this for zoomers with all the changes and stuff but they halfassed the most important part.

>dumps a whole bunch of exposition that's missing 70% of the context provided by Extra/Unlimited
are they retarded? How is this for new people?
Also Yuuko was nerfed hard in the anime. She's lost all of her commanding/dominant/sarcastic personality. She's arguably one of the strongest characters in the series and they turned her into just another side character.

>>20219689
I can't believe they cut the scene where Yuuko convinces the guards to let Takeru come with her after all that drama by her going "Oops, silly me, I totally forgot I know this guy lol"

Jesus christ it's even worse than I thought it'd be. They are seriously trying to just do a 1-to-1 adaptation despite skipping the first two VNs. I figured they'd try to ham-hand it in via flashbacks or something, but no, they're not even going to try.

So far the only bad things about it are the cheap 2D animation and the fact that they haven't adapted Extra and Unlimited first. The rest are subjective bitching for the sake of creating drama.
As far as "Alternative anime" thing goes, it didn't cut out any of the important story elements so far and was pretty faithful to the VN.
I would rather have an another TDA lore discussion here.

1:1 adaptation? Who said that? I thought the first ep was clearly enough to let you know that will have original content. And it's confirmed that the anime is for newcomers.
>>
Why did they do Sadogashima as the opening episode and not Takeru and Co. getting overrun and killed by BETA after Alternative V? It'd be a big mecha action scene to draw in viewers to fill that producer's requirement, it's something we've never seen to fill >>20219856, it'd give some time to flesh out the cast, it'd make this time-looping element less jarring, it's nothing but upsides.

>>20218897

Imagine thinking that doomposting is equivalent to legitimate criticism of how badly they are unfolding the narrative when they advertised that newcomers should be able to get into it easily.

WE understand what's going on, the fact that they blatantly lied or horribly over estimated how well they handled introducing people to the Alternative universe is grounds to be worried.

If anything it'll actually get people to read the Visual Novels because of how much of a disconnect there is but I wouldn't be proud off of getting profit by making a faulty adaptaion, but hey at the end of the day profit is profit I guess.
>>
>>20219899
This also absolutely boggles my mind. If they just started with the ending of Alternative V we wouldn't even need that info dump at the beginning about Alternative V and instead maybe focus more on the Extraverse.

I'm not getting why people think this anime is for newcomers when it clearly isn't, unless you're going to tell me the flashbacks and the narrative dump in ep 02 is enough, to which I vehemently disagree.
>>
>>20219879
I support this anon >>20219848, people are doomposting and they're acting like children because their daddy didn't gave them what they want, but unfortunately the anime had very few scenes (like 4) with awkward animation.

>>20219907
How it can be a legitimate criticism when your opinion is biased? I would try asking to an anime watcher their opinion about the anime.

God, it understand the second episode had a lot of dumpinfo and flashbacks, but I've seen series like this and I keep watching to understand what's going on. The last anime like this was Blue Reflection Ray, the first ep was "wtf is happening, it's so confusing", I keep watching and I was able to understand the series and everything makes sense.

So with that logic people would have dropped Monogatari series because it has nonsense episodes and had a weird chronological order.

The opinion that actually matter are the anime watcher, the VN reader isn't valid since it's biased. Something that I would agree with are some derp moments in the 2D animation. Y'all have to grow and use your brains if has any.
>>
>>20219913
Right? You want some action to draw in viewers and are willing to make shit up to meet that requirement, okay fine. Then why wouldn't you make something up that actually supports the story you're going to tell?
>>
>>20219937
You literally just also shared your own experience which is also biased. Not everyone is like you, and not everyone is the guy who posted what you're replying to, and you literally went in insulting everyone else who has an opinion on the matter so maybe think before you speak too when you tell people to use their brains.

Monogatari was made without needing prior knowledge. This was obviously the 2nd part of some sort of series that you needed prior knowledge on. If they pull off making it clearer in 11 episodes that's great but we're talking about the now and it's not looking good but sure keep your opinions it's a free board.
>>
>>20219960
>There are people on this board right now comparing the narrative dumpster fire of episode 1 and 2 to the Monogatari series

Maybe Alternative V was the right option.
>>
>>20219937
Saying that anime-only people should be the only one allowed to criticize the anime is like saying that someone who doesn't draw cannot criticize someone who does.

I'm assuming you've read or watched more than just anime, you can take that experience with how well those types of media clicked with how much you liked the pacing/explanation of the story and apply it to another piece of media. I'm pretty sure that's all that they're doing here too, comparing it to another piece of media that in their opinion had good pacing and/or ability to lay context in relation to the current narrative.

Of course you're going to be biased on anything, your post also reeks of bias, but that doesn't stop you from having an opinion on the anime now does it? So why complain about the people complaining? Just because you don't agree with them?
>>
>>20219969
>Monogatari was made without needing prior knowledge
This anime as well was made without needing prior knowledge, since the it's for newcomers.

I can't have some respect for people here when everyone literally are doomposting without understand that the fucking anime isn't for VN readers, it's for damn newcomers.

>>20220051
Dude, comparing the original content with the adaptation doesn't help at all. The pacing sucks because you felt the pacing is so fast and therefore you're going to say that it sucks because they adapted 1k lines onto 24 minutes, does that means the anime sucks? No, the anime is a different media and it try to condense everything in few hours.

>>
>>20220076
I'm not even comparing it to the original content, cause of course I watch other shows too so I'm thinking it's weird that okay, episode 1, cool, aliens, dang that seems wild, then episode 2, what, time loop? Parallel other world? I guess that's kind of neat, but what happened to everyone in episode 1? Where'd that Komaki lady go?

It's kind of jarring narratively isn't it?
>>
>>20220076
So then there are two camps thinking 'this is for newcomers' and the other one that thinks 'this doesn't feel like it's for newcomers' and both of these camps have both read the VN

If someone who hasn't read the VN can chime in that would be nice

You won't find many people here who haven't read the VN.

Does Muv Luv have choices during mecha combat that at least slightly change the scenes?
>>
>>20220146
Nope.
>>
>>20220140
This is what I've read for reviews as well, which is why like, I dunno it's kind of a 'okay cool I'm not actually a bitter boomer' to know that even as someone who read the VN, I can recognize that it doesn't really feel like it was made for newcomers even if it was advertised to be.

It really felt like playing FF7 Remake, watching the Ghosts show flashbacks of what happened in FF7 and going 'wait a minute, I wouldn't get that if I didn't play FF7'

>>20220140
>It feels like it started in the middle of a story
I actually agree. As an adaptation, so far it's fine. There are no important story beats missing in the fraction ep 2 adapts. The pacing is fast, but the story is delivered in a good way. It would have been perfect if we had 2 12 ep seasons adapting EX and UN before.

desu I don't hate the new ed that much except for how poorly directed it is. It suggests some fun characterful scenes with the girls that we don't already have in Alternative and we lose by not getting Extra or Unlimited. Of course, we probably won't actually have any of those scenes in the show so it'll never make sense tonally.

I just want to watch Marino tuck Yuuko in bros it's not fair.

>>20220305
Honestly I'm just disappointed. I feel like there were two things that could be cool about the anime. It could have been a new perspective on the story, told in a new format, like some anons have suggested with mixing Extra, Unlimited, and Alternative together. It could also have just been an animated retelling of the VN, making the story we're familiar with feel more vivid (like what the manga is doing). Instead it's playing it completely straight so it's just the same story we all know, and the animation is crap so it doesn't feel good to watch. It just doesn't have a reason to exist so far. I hope they change that but I'm not optimistic.

I didn't watch TE as it was airing and thus missed all the threads, but "wasn't that bad" is about the best I can say about it. It was fine. It was okay. It wasn't GOOD, not by a long shot, but I don't regret watching it.
The arc on the Russian front with the rail gun was far and away the best part. Felt like Muv Luv. The "ending" was really bad; a lot of stuff that was built up too just never happened, especially the fight with the rival squad. Yui a cute, shoulda been the main girl.

I just watched the episode, did they really have to go with Takeru getting run over by a Destroyer instead of the iconic shot from Unlimited?

I may be mixing things in my memory, but shouldn't Alternative V include not only leaving Earth but also dropping G-Bombs on hives and remaining humans launching final attack on BETA?

Maybe it was Takeru from a timeline where he banged Yuko?

bro it's not that. it's that they were fucking LAZY so they just took scenes from a future episode (aka chomp in the last episode) - note Takeru gets RAMMED by that destroyer in the VN too and crammed it in so they don't have to reanimate it. It's the same for the salute thing. It's all to save in the name of true money

where's my kurogane last stand against a beta horde stretching beyond the horizon in every direction?

>>20221612

no it wouldn't
It would be an insane hook and some cock-hardening fanservice
they don't have to show TDA's ending, just a no-context last stand with a crazy battle instead of jobbing to a basic destroyer
>>
>>20221612
There's no proof that he becomes Kurogane in every post-Unlimited ending. Conversely, there's also no proof that Kurogane doesn't somehow get healed, get placed in a Gekishin, and then get blindsided by a Destroyer after being overwhelmed.
>>
>>20221721
Yep. The scene opens with dual-blade-wielding tsf tearing through hordes of BETA. The person inside grasps for air, exhausted. He keeps fighting BETA until his propellant runs dry and blades worn out. It then reveals a long-haired takeru, ready to accept his fate, thoughts of his dead friends and comrades swirling inside his mind right before the screen cut out to Alternative.

Idk how I would feel if that were to happen, just knowing that local tissue reserve would be empty.
>>
>>20221730
Right before Alt should be his peak of all his accumulated experience and skill. He doesn't have to become kurogane in every unlimited meiya end, but the more skilled he is the more likely it should be that he survives long into post Alt V.
>no evidence kurogane's the one who jobbed
We know this wasn't the case in the anime because he was still in UN colors, and we know the UN collapses post Babylon.
This means that canonically, pre-alt takeru jobs hard to basic ass beta, and they expect us to just accept that right after that loop he's some badass?
>>
>>20221744
>they expect us to just accept that right after that loop he's some badass
Except Alternative Takeru isn't? He aces shit like basic training and the skills test, but he falls apart when shit actually matters.

yeah i love the military and the scifi aspect of it, and the uniforms are really cute (both the overcoats and the plug suits) but I've just never really cared about the TSFs other than that they're a weapon. I kinda like that the VNs treat it that way too.. There's no massive lore dumps about how they work or the joints on their shoulders etc, other than "we needed them because nothing else really worked against the BETA."

Funnily enough I really disliked Baldr Sky becuase of the mechs. The story and the world was intersting but I didn't like the mechs

Dude did you even read Alternative?
>>
>>20221882
The idea of TSFs is not a be all end all kind of weapon. Its literally just an extension of a soldier which can do a little more stuff more efficiently. The fact that its flight capability is severely handicapped by lasers makes it no more than a walking and jumping tank.
>>
>>20221888
Yes, was there a massive lore dump on them?? I don't remember it at all

I like how you guys are arguing about anime details showing whats canon when the animators forgot to draw one of Yuuko's legs

They only describe the subarms system and overall design iirc. There are facts about joints, but not explicitly how it works.

the only reason i really love muv luv is because of the sci fi time travelling romance drama element. don't care too much about the military and /m/ babble.

yes she is, real alt sumika was the brain, and they can't mind transfer, all they did was copy paste and killed the brain afterwards
so s00mika is just an AI
>>
>>20222257
honestly if you read extra thinking that Meiya is an AI it kinda makes sense. Shit starts disappearing and it kinda feels like Meiya is warping reality to her will. I thought that Takeru was plugged into some military computer in the BETAverse and the AI was trying to study him or reconstruct him or protect him or something. I also thought that maybe she was a BETA AI and he was in a hive and unlimited would start with him being rescued and disconnected

Nevermind, see no reason to keep reading when something so major was spoiled to a character I was invested in.

As soon as I heard that atrocious ED I wanted to do something like this.

Once the series is done I fully intend to do a 'fan edit' of the whole thing. Maybe put in some more VN music in some scenes if it works, and possibly cut out some stuff if they add any character ruining dialog.

Overall I am still pleasantly surprised by the anime though.

>>20222533
I think they must've hit some production issues or something which is why we've only got 12 episodes in this cour. The opening and trailers has them fighting BETA, despite the pacing pointing to them never showing up again in this cour.
Which makes me assume their scheduling got fucked up and they just lost the second cour's timeslot which would've gone up to sadogashima(Though I don't know how well the pacing would be even with an extra 12 episodes to get there, since there's a lot of stuff to cover between the coup and Operation 21st)
Otherwise they made marketing and an opening that are just straight up lies. Also kinda funny that they wanted to hook people in with an action packed 1st episode, only to then give a season that's mostly just people talking, training, and then a few mech vs mech battles near the end.
>>

I didn't mind the ED too.

If you were super autistic you might be able to make it work, it depends how much they end up diverging from the VN plot.

You could also try training an AI with the VN voices and redoing the anime dialog, this is also incredibly autistic but probably more plausible.

>Are you autistic?
Yes
>>
>>20223026
autist here, what you could do is train the AI to look for specific spoken words in the VN, then cross reference them with the words being spoken in the anime. There's enough text so you might be able to do it, but it might sound pretty weird given that the tones wouldn't line up since you would be ripping the words from different sentences. If the AI can't find a sentence you can tell it to just use the anime word
>>

i've only made pixel based CNNs and they seem to not take a super long time to train, i can't imagine that a speech based CNN would be much different... In fact, wouldn't it be way faster? Since you're just using like pitch and frequency or whatever audio is comprised of?
>>
>>20223129
>>20223134
Rereading earlier posts I see the idea was to directly rip lines from the VN, I was proposing getting a model to generate arbitrary lines in the style of a given character, which could then be run with the anime script. Making something to recognize and rip voice lines probably wouldn't be that bad, I was more thinking the costs of getting SOTA (still not THAT great also 15 hasn't actually published his model) for voice generation.
>>
>>20223134
Speech data / time series in general also has memory so pitch / frequency features won't cut it. Will probably need to train an architecture with attention and quite a few LSTMs, and those don't come cheap re: training time.
>>
>>20223197
well that was the initial idea, then after the other poster said it wouldn't be great I said you can just train it to speak instead of lining up the sound for the word. Not sure on the complexity of it though, I've never worked with speech or text.

Some people prefer feeling and surprises more than analysis. Others like both, but prefer one over the other. Still others just get easily turned off to a story when they're spoiled about something. Who can say?
Just because it's not the way you read a story doesn't make it idiotic. Calm your autism.

The fuck is wrong with you robot. Of course people care about the emotional moments that a story is trying to convey. You’re the one that sounds like an autistic robot that can’t understand emotions.
