Anime-Club Forum _ Mecha _ Muv-luv Alternative: Total Eclipse

Posted by: elpreda Jul 26 2012, 08:44 PM

Tocmai am terminat de vazut primele 4 episoade. Abolutely loved the first 2, can't put my finger on the other ones. Sunt curios ce parere au despre el cei care au citit VN-ul. I might just drop what i'm reading now and start this.

Oh and the summary:

"In 1973, an invasion of aliens known as BETA upon Earth is driving human civilization into nearly collapse. Facing an enormous mass of enemy force, mankind has developed large humanoid arms called as Tactical Surface Fighters and deployed them to its defense lines through out the world. However, all those efforts could slow down defeats but could not stop BETA, and mankind is forced to abandon major area of the Eurasian Continent. For 30 years, mankind is bogged down in an endless war against BETA without any hopes of victory.
In 2001, the Imperial Japan faces difficulties in the development of a next-generation main Tactical Surface Fighters (TSF) as it defends the front lines of the Far East. The UN has proposed a joint development program between the Imperial Japan and the United States as a part of its international mutual development project of TSF, the Prominence Project.
This story with exciting human dramas and robot actions takes place in the development of a new Tactical Surface Fighters, the most important and effective weapons against BETA, at a crisis of human extinction.
Yet they never knew that their encounter would change their destiny drastically.
Yui Takamura, a TSF pilot of the Imperial Royal Guards of Japan, is given responsibility for the project and sets off to Alaska. Meanwhile, Yuya Bridges, also a TSF pilot of the US Army, was heading to the same destination."

In primul rand, Total Eclipse din start e complet diferit ca feeling de trilogia de VN-uri semanand cu Top Gun, in timp ce trilogia seamana cu Starship Troopers. De aici si diferenta asa de mare intre primele doua episoade si urmatoarele doua. Primele doua episoade sunt filler care introduc setting-ul pentru cei care nu sunt familiarizati cu el si de aceea incearca (si reusesc foarte bine) sa emuleze atmosfera din trilogia originala de VN-uri, in timp ce incepand cu episodul 3 incepe Total Eclipse-ul propriu zis.

Deci daca ti-au placut primele doua episoade o sa iti placa sigur si VN-urile, doar sa nu uiti ca trebuie neaparat sa citesti Extra si Unlimited inainte de Alternative.

Tocmai pentru ca e diferit de VN-uri m-am uitat la el, altfel nu m-as fi spoilerit. I just wanted to see how much i'd enjoy atmosfera Muv Luv. Thanks for reminding me about the order, uitasem de Extra si Unlimited.

Si acum dupa aproape doi ani ce zici: merita?

Ca l-am luat si eu dar nu am vazut decat primul episod, ma chinui sa termini mediocritatea de Gunparade March inainte sa ma bag serios in alta serie.

Frankly no. The first 2 episodes are misleading, the rest of the show ranks from mediocre to weak.

7 episodes in and I see what you mean. It's like Top Gun but without any of the action scenes.

Poate o sa incerc VN-urile.
