A promotional video for the animation project was released this morning Muv-Luv-Alternative: The animation, revealing that the premiere is scheduled for October 6th in Japan. However, it became a trend on Twitter in Japan that the production practically condemned the series' possible popularity from now on.

Muv-Luv-Alternative: The animation

It turns out that the production was planning to televise the series through the program block + Ultra from Fuji TVwhich airs at 12.55 p.m., almost one in the morning. In addition, fans of the franchise cannot access streaming services as it is exclusive to Fuji TV on Demand (FOD), a service that was founded in 2015 and has little more than fifteen anime series. Because of this, fans point out that the project has been condemned by placing it exclusively on a platform that in no way has anime as its first priority. In fact, comments like:

  • «Exclusive to FOD ... We all already know what that means. My condolences to all Muv-Luv fans. This animation will never be popular. Where were projects like Akudama Drive that were exclusive to FOD but also broadcast on different channels? I will say it again. My sincerest condolences».
  • «There's no way that Muv-Luv, an FOD exclusive anime that starts at 1am on weekdays, is going to be fashionable, it's too against».
  • «"It will be exclusive to FOD." Absolutely no one: "Sure, time to hire this shitty service!"».
  • «The decision to make it exclusive to FOD has doomed Muv-Luv. Do you think Muv-Luv viewers will say, "I'll subscribe to FOD if it's exclusive"? Do you think they will? Muv-Luv viewers are a group of old geeks in a nursing home who watch it on TV at 10pm while still awake and want to share their memories by tweeting "I miss it ... I still remember when I played it "the first time! "».
  • «The exclusive FOD distribution is really great because it puts you in a position where no one will criticize your work because absolutely no one will be looking at it!».
  • «Today I laugh the most because I've seen a group of geeks who were delighted to find out that Muv-Luv Alternative is already an anime, and a minute later they found out that it is FOD exclusive and they have Broken».

Muv-Luv Alternative Synopsis

In the sequel, Takeru wakes up three years after the start of "Unlimited" and finds himself back in his room.
