Even if you’re blind and suck at Japanese, taking a whole year to finish a visual novel generally means it’s terrible. Muv-Luv Unlimited was no exception.
Muv-Luv Unlimited picked up where Muv-Luv Extra left off—and went little farther. Our main character is transported to an alternate universe where his lines are suddenly voiced, making you think shit’s about to go down. Unfortunately, the only thing that went down was shit. He’s in the army. He trains. He never goes on a real mission. The end.
This time I didn’t read all the routes. It was a combination of disinterest and a hunch that they’d be mostly the same. I only read Meiya’s endings and Yuuko’s ending. Now I know the key to banging a busty physicist is high-grade sake.
Muv-Luv Unlimited was clearly designed with a sequel in mind. For all I know, everything had to be exactly this boring, or worse, to set up Muv-Luv Alternative (which had better be the best fucking this I’ve ever read). But no matter how good Muv-Luv Alternative may turn out to be, I have to judge Muv-Luv Unlimited on its own merits. It didn’t have many.
