Hi everyone, I’m pleased to report that as of today we have completed translations of all lines for TDA01! We are now moving into the editing and QC process, so please be patient a little longer, and expect a release soon!
In other news, a new free to play Muv-Luv Mobage game called Muv-Luv Alternative: Next Answer has been released for Mobile devices. You can access the link here through your handphone, and play the game online. If you have a browser that supports auto translation to English, you can get a machine translation of the various menus and text as well. You can also check out guide for the various cards and events at this Japanese site. While I’m not really into this sort of game, I wish everyone who enjoys it happy tapping~
In model kit news, we have new Kotobukiya kits announced during the Winter Wonderfest 2015. First up is the 1/144 Takemikazuchi 00R blue version, that comes with the iconic Railgun that was shown in Total Eclipse! This variant of equipment comes from a battle which occurred in TDA 03. You can read up more on the events which took place in the VN on the Wiki, but be warned of Spoilers! The Muv-Luv Unlimited: The Day After 1/144 Takemikazuchi Type-00R 16th Guard Battalion Commander Unit Plastic Model is planned for release late Jun 2015.
The next upcoming kit would be the Non-scale Schwarzesmarken – Mig-21 Balalaika as teased in previous updates, with a planned release of July 2015. However it’s not up for preorders yet, so expect delays in the release date.
Other than kits, we have two new magazines as well. First is the Muv-Luv Alternative Tactical Fighter Complete Book, which is a compilation of Hobby Japan model kit pages since Dec 2012. It was released in Feb 2015. Next up is the Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse Memorial Art Book, releasing late March 2015. This book will be like previous Memorial books that were released in that it will contain concept art and design details of the Visual Novel and perhaps the animation. As there have been many other compilation books for the Total Eclipse anime over the past years, I expect the book to be more VN centric.
That is all the updates I have for now, do look forward to the English translation of TDA01, coming soon~!
