Black MayBlack May

Hi all, today we have a round of new project updates from Alternative Projects. As AP has started recruitment for more members to help work on more projects in the Muv-Luv franchise, I’m happy to report that our team has grown, and we have a number of new members who have joined us now working on different stories! Without further ado, please welcome our new members and our current projects!

Member roll: Gabgrave, Albedo, Sachibelle, Ben, Evan (New), Qwott(New), Suffok(New), Lolrider(New)



(As per the PV from Photonmelodies, the official English name for this side story is Aspiration, thus the change from Adoration)

Haruko Maniax

Haruko Maniax title

Schwarzesmarken Light Novel Volume 1 (Chapter 3 & 4)


Join up now

We have other projects planned, such as the rest of Chronicles, Total Eclipse, Ayu Mayu Alternative, and the various side stories, as well as the Schwarzesmarken VN when it’s released.

So we are still looking for more translators, English editors who know also know Russian, and especially programmers/hackers to help with the project. If you are one or know of anyone with these skills, and have an interest in the projects, do drop us an email!


Now, for updates in the franchise.

I’m very pleased to say that this month of May has seen a flood of releases and announcements from Age for Schwarzesmarken, or liberally translated into English, Black Marks. Thus this month has become the Black Month of May.

Age has announced that there will be an Anime for this series! This will be the second anime in the Muv-Luv franchise, following Total Eclipse. The anime will probably be released next year, after the release of the TWO VNs for Schwarzesmarken.

『シュヴァルツェスマーケン 紅血の紋章(仮)』今秋発売
『シュヴァルツェスマーケン 殉教者たち(仮)』今冬発売

The first VN, titled Crest of Red Blood, is up for preorders, with a release date of Sept 2015, and can be ordered here.


The second, titled Martyrs, is stated as having a release date of Winter this year.

Next, an announcement for a new Light Novel Supplement for Schwaresmarken was also made, covering the side story of Irisdina Bernhard, titled The silhouette of the Bernhards.

SM side story

On the model kits side, Kotobukia has finally announced the release date of the Non-scale MiG-21 Balalaika Theodor Eberbach Type Plastic Model, scheduled for a Sep 2015 release as well. Orders can be made here.

In addition, apparently this can be done with the new Frame Arms Girl that Koto released as well.

That’s all we have for now. Stay tuned for more updates on our projects, and do spread the word that we are looking for more people to help with the projects!

See you next time! ~Gabgrave
