About

The Muv-Luv series is an epic saga told in three parts: Muv-Luv Extra, Muv-Luv Unlimited, and Muv-Luv Alternative. What begins as a tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy ultimately transforms into an action-packed thrill ride in a war-torn alternate reality, and it’s this drastic-yet-methodical genre twist that makes the final chapter the most highly-revered visual novel of all time. This is a story that will plant seeds in your brain early in the first act that you won’t even notice until they sprout in the third for maximum narrative payoff and crushing emotional impact. Don’t fall for Extra’s cutesy exterior. This series ventures into some of the darkest thematic territory you’ll ever see, and when the final curtain closes, you’ll likely need a forklift to pick your jaw up off the floor. Make no mistake: this is a story that will challenge you in ways few works of fiction dare attempt, and an emotional tour de force unlike any other.

This game contains the first two arcs: Extra, and Unlimited.
The final arc, Muv-Luv Alternative is the story’s massive climax, and is nearly the size of the first two combined.Muv-Luv Extra
Takeru is your average unassuming high school senior whose entire world gets turned upside down one morning when he awakens to find himself in bed with the heiress to one of the world’s largest international conglomerates. She calls herself Meiya, and - despite never having met him before - she insists that the two of them are destined for one another. This comes much to the chagrin of his childhood friend Sumika, the girl next door who’s always had feelings for him, who realizes that if she doesn’t act fast, she might just lose him forever. All of which begs the question: just who is Meiya? And do his feelings for Sumika run deeper than he thought? In the end, he’ll need to decide between the girl who’s been with him through thick and thin, or the stranger who claims they’re bound together by fate.

But that’s only one side of the story.Muv-Luv Unlimited
Just as the page turns on Takeru’s happily ever after, he awakens one morning in a world not his own. An alternate timeline, humanity on the brink of extinction. A world infested by alien invaders locked in a war that’s been raging on for decades. And yet, all the set pieces are the same - his house is still here, albeit dilapidated and barely standing. His school is still here, though it’s now a military academy. And even though they don’t recognize him, all his friends are here too… with one exception.

Was this all just a dream? Or was the world he thought he knew really a dream all along?Muv-Luv Alternative

Muv-Luv reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
A very pedorra and boring novel that does not go beyond the typical Japanese tropes of "the Neighbor friend of childhood", "we will do secondary" and others that any anime fan can find in 2 seconds, where we meet 5 types of girl in the best style "choose and Our own Waifu "and... It is there where the novel is finished, has its moments funny, romantic and tear. Not going anywhere, the art "meets" but a bit outdated (novel released in the 2000, by the way). That is what I would say if it were not because the franchise "Muv Luv" is a trip that you will not be able to forget in a long time. This part is divided into Muv Luv Extra and Muv Luv Unlimited. The first is quite loose and the worst part of the original trilogy. I would Not say that you go to read it even though its average duration is of 15 hours, but I will join the crowd and say it: LEE MUV LUV EXTRA. Why?. Simple: Context. You will be known as the world where their characters live, interactions and personalities. No more than that but it is a very important part of the canon. You are Not going to lose too much so read to the route that you get to touch or the initial protagonists and nothing else. Although surely at the end of the trilogy you will want to re-read all the routes for things that happened to you above. Tedious, I admit, but necessary. Muv Luv Unlimited is where things take a turn and you get into a completely different world where the human race is literally playing the neck of extraterrestrial invaders called "BETA" who have eliminated almost 80% of the human race. All the things that Takeru (the protagonist) will turn around: the people with whom interact is the same, but in very different social and political contexts, representing the antithesis of Muv Luv Extra: A world where misfortune and death is the order of the day and To try to adapt to survive and look for an answer to why it was sent to another dimension. Although It is Unlimited is much better than Extra, continues to go around the same tropes but with a tone a little more "serious" sometimes and others touching the same idiocy as its first part. It is Not necessarily bad, but considering the scenario post apocalyptic say that the events are taken lightly taking into account the apocalyptic scenario of the novel and its duration is a little longer also, having tense moments and others that lengthen Too much. I'm Not saying it's a "must read" of the trilogy but they're essential gears. No Extra we'd know that lost Takeru to be transported to Unlimited, and without Unlimited we'd know not how important is Extra and especially Muv Luv Alternative (the third installment) where without a doubt is something to talk.
