This guy sounds awfully similar to Shinn Asuka. Are the characters similar?
Theo is based on Shinn Asuka, and they share the same VA because of this, Muv Luv loves to take characters from other franchises and do their thing, there is even Midget Lelouch with FukuJun as his VA.
>Doesn't use a bigass sword
>Doesn't operate off a poorly-design spess battleship
>Doesn't charge into battle like a hallucinating loony on stimpacks

>Not part of a special military branch organization
>Doesn't give a shit about his mother nation; not even hate, just flat-out don't give a fuck unless via proxy third-party interest
>Doesn't operate special snowflake highly-advanced machine - that belongs to Yuuya, the unparalleled crusading warrior of humanity who slew 3000 BETA on his first sortie (unless you consider a jury-rigged MiG head on another MiG a highly-advanced machine)
>[/spoiler]Kills his own sister[/spoiler]
shin-kun no reberu mada ne, teo-kun
That's Mitsurugi Meiya. Her twin sister takes hair from Gebera Tetra.
The visual connection is only moderate, but it's there.
>Theo is based on Shinn Asuka
No he is definitely not based off of Shinn.
>they share the same VA because of this
There's no casting gag, Theo's voice was chosen all the way back when they were animating TE.
Dude at this point you are in the extreme minority. Alot of the people who were in denial gave up when Theo got Kenichi Suzumura.
They also have the same arch-nemesis.
Theo would basically see Yuuko as a smarter, more dangerous Beatrix.
penetrateboth those sluts with the force of a CIWS driven through a cockpit block.
Finally the year when everyone will realize she's clearly the best SM
Everyone already knows Katia is best SM
Though Beatrix may have stolen my heart with her dark charms, I still respect you Katiafags. Why don't you guys post more?
Also, Katia has the best birthday pic of the SMs so far.
Fucking Beatrix just wrecks my shit in that game, especially because she'll ignore my defenses unlike the other classes and make a beeline for Iris.
I don't remember Katia getting a birthday picture this year.
That's the New Year's picture
Her birthday is on the 7th next week
I hope in 2016 even with SM anime we won't forget that meiya is the best girl
Just spam Theo against Beatofort. He seems to do extra damage against her, and is cheap to boot.
Like you wouldn't believe.
I hate the how there's a glut of scanned SM promo material.
Iris's daki isn't very good. I'd wait for her inevitable second daki comes out.
Alright /m/en, I bet you can't handle a handful of BETA.
Well, you know, maybe some of us aren't too big on cutting our books up.
>1.38 MB for such a blurry picture
How do you even do that?
I wonder what Âge and IXTL want from us westerners. AFAIK that game is only playable in Japan but in the most recent update on the KS that came out today they mentioned the game anyway.
So the whole story to this thing is Gretel gets angry at Iris for ignoring her and storms off to the PX, right? Their she ends up eating some new dishes that turn out to be made with BETA meat. When she awakens the next day, she's transformed into a BETA-Gretel hybrid. Still angry at Iris, she sets off to destroy her captain with the help of Beatrix, who's just in it for the lulz.
Gee, you don't think.
There's a reason why Beato is Kouki's favorite right along with Yuuko.
Second BiS volume synopsis is up:
Jürgen has been attending the Air Academy for two years.
But in those two years, the world has changed completely.
An alien species of unknown origin, the BETA invade Earth.
The mass use of nukes to counter the BETA lead to a "Nuclear Winter."
Jürgen is chosen to study abroad in the Soviet Union's Tactical Surface Pilot Program.
After witnessing the extent of the BETA threat, Jürgen becomes convinced that if he is to protect his world and his beloved he must advocate for the necessity of TSFs in his country.
Thus begins the second act of Schwarzesmarken's prequel!
Most of the BiS spoilers come from Zero16004, the guy who played a major role in getting most of SM translated to Chinese. The guy is usually pretty spot on. 99% of the stuff he puts on the wiki is later corroborated by official sources.
本作は、本編『シュヴァルツェスマーケン』の中で薄らとその存在を描かれていた 第666戦術機中隊隊長アイリスディーナ・ベルンハルトの兄ユルゲン・ベルンハルトが テープレコーダーを通じて過去の話を読者に(シュタージに?)語るという世界観 となっています。
BiS opens up with a recording of Jürgen's will/last words being played in what is alluded to be a stasi archive. Many of the Japs believe that the listener/psuedo-narrator is Beatrix:
-From Ch 1
Kinda sad if you think about it.
That's pretty creepy. It'd be right up Beato's alley. She probably cries out for Jürgen every time she schlicks too.
If Beato really is the one listening too and interpreting the tapes, than it'd explain why the story continually jerks Jürgen off.
I want to mend her broken heart with love, not kill her. Dammit Kouki, you better deliver in Martyrs.
Knew what exactly?
It's all conjecture. Even if Beatrix is listening in on the tapes, what does it prove? And who is to say that it'd even be Beatrix? It could be Axmann for all you know.
She'll turn him in before she does anything lewd.
Even if (big if) Beatrix turns out to genuinely love Jurgen, it doesn't change the fact that she's a shitty person who deserved to die for all the torturing and murdering she's done.
She'd look the same. Girls don't really lose their luster as the get older in ML (see Latrova).
Man, you're just grasping at straws now. It probably is Beatrix because she:
>is the main heroine of BiS
>would be the one who'd have access to his tapes >would have a reason for wanting to listen to them
Face it, you dumb Irisfag, there is way more gray to SM than your perfect little golden haired angel taking on fem anti-christ.
Are you saying my waifu is a skellington?
I don't really see Beatrix being a hands-on; she's more of a mouth to shaft type.
>Murder and rape (and the act of murdering and torturing people who have nothing to do with your problems) just means you have an edgy tragic backstory and you fall into a moral gray area
>Muv-Luv waifufags being this delusional
alrright, which one of you will buy Theo's MiG that is coming out this month?
Then is Iris the handjob wizard? Or is she the breast girl?
No, I said there's a bit of a gray area in SM. A lot of you Irisfags want to say that Beato is a complete monster. She's very much evil, but not the unfeeling monster sociopath that you want her to be. She's not doing it for the evulz, she often times has a rationale for doing the shit she does. In her own way, Beatrix thinks like Iris, she's doing the stuff she does for the "greater good."
Iris, likewise, has her own skeletons hiding in her closet, and though she occupies the moral high ground in comparison to Beato, the people she associates with, like Axmann and some of the more insane rebels, don't.
Also, Beato doesn't rape anybody. That's just a dumb rumor.
Definitely handjob wizard.
Beatrix has the largest breasts of all the girls anyways
at least in the anime.
I would have preferred to have an original VN with that kind of external view actually. Would have been more interesting than a reroll of the LN ( Especially when we don't know for sure if the multiple routes will be that different and that we have all the reasons to think that it will not be ).
this one? its scheduled for april
Here, 70% done with cleaning it. I'll finish it when I feel like it.
>Reading Chinese uploads of Lise's Requiem story
>Get to this part
Jesus fucking Christ Axmann. What the shit. No wonder Beato's so fucked up in the head if this guy is her boss.
How could Iris even entertain making deals with such a monster?
>Axmann forces Lise to kill some kids with a rock, saying that there's a war going on and that she should conserve ammo. He then jokes that a fricken baby has "seen too much," so it has to go too.
Oh lawd, as horrible as that is, I can't help but laugh. Axmann's like a Muv Luv version of the joker. No matter how horrific, no matter how evil, he always makes you laugh.
Choke on it you damn Irisdinafag.
Looks like she really couldn't handle Theo's girth.
>Jesus fucking Christ Axmann. What the shit. No wonder Beato's so fucked up in the head if this guy is her boss.
She had to become ruthless. She's only spared Axemann's Stasi "training" due to her family connections. However, Axemann keeps teasing how much he'd like to bed her.
>How could Iris even entertain making deals with such a monster?
She didn't know what he's done; since he's been careful to avoid letting himself get caught in such situations that would give him away. Almost everyone else does his dirty work. With Lise, he already had her almost completely broken, and the threat of hunting down Theo was more than sufficient to keep her compliant and silent and submissive.
Probably not, but her father's been a longtime Stasi supporter and has been trying to groom Beatrix into the role she'd assume. He was influential enough to put guards on her ass most of the time.
Having a boyfriend who was not under her father's control allowed her to retain some sanity. Once he was gone, the only thing she could do is try and change the system from within, or failing that, manipulate the system in order to try and save the greater majority of Germany. Remember, she's one of the few females who didn't get raped or reeducated under the Stasi, and was even ruthless enough to get command over her own team, which is nothing short of impressive given how ruthless the Stasi are portrayed.
We aren't really sure if Beatrix's dad was a stasi supporter or not (he probably was). All we know for sure is that he did not have a good relationship with Beatrix. Those old spoilers had alooot wrong, and you'd think someone as influential as Abel would show up in SM if he was still alive. Hell, as influential as the "Red Aristocrats" were, you'd think that someone other than Beato would show up. I think the Brehmes got purged, same as the Bernhards. Remember, chapter 5 has Jurg trying to rope Abel in on his TSF scheme since the guy has so much power over the DDR's finances and government. This connection could prove to be the tool an unscrupulous rival (someone like Erich Schmidt) could use to have them "dissapeared" when Iris rats Jurg out.
TE does, more or less. I mean actually you can tell when Yuuya is the perspective character or not by whether OnoD is talking or not but it shifts around so much it's hard to call it properly first person even compared to MLA.
It's a weird fucking thing because you expect to get more insight into the things that happened immediately around Yuuya compared to anime but the game is actually the opposite way.
SM's VN had Katia as a secondary viewpoint character, but removed many scenes, such as most of the Beato's scenes (such as the one where she jokes with her squad, or her briefing the Werewolves, or the scene where she shows disdain for Soviet leadership and her unease with Axmann, or the one where she gloats about her latest scheme to get Iris). This was actually something the 2channers ripped the game apart for.
How do you guys even begin to rationalize her behavior? In the PV alone, she was smiling in glee as she shot some poor and bounded schmuck. I can get "having to do what you have to do" in an absolute shit situation. I can get having to execute people who don't get with the program in a life and death situation. What I don't get is deriving sadistic enjoyment from another's pain and/or death.
Basically, I can understand why someone would do evil, I can even get behind them sometimes, but I have difficulty finding any sympathy for someone who derives pleasure from it (no matter how gorgeous they are). To me, she's in the same scumbag tier as Axmann until proven otherwise.
She's barely in the VN and she's already the most evil character introduced so far. She tries to have a 15 year old turned over to her (in other words, tortured and possibly murdered), picks on Theo's PTSD for her sadistic pleasure, then delays the rescue of trapped NVA squadrons resulting in the death of Major Hannibal and countless others, again, for the evulz.
If she was on the rebels side, she'd still be doing evil. If the BETA never invaded, she'd still be a nasty piece of work. The greater good bullshit is just an excuse for her to work out her sadistic tendencies, same as terrorist use religion as an excuse to do their thing. I honestly find Axmann more likable; as sadistic as he is, he still has less blood on his hands than Beatrix (firing into civilian crowds with a TSF's autocannon will quickly rack up quite the kill count), and at least he's truthful about who he really is.
>I honestly find Axmann more likable; as sadistic as he is, he still has less blood on his hands than Beatrix (firing into civilian crowds with a TSF's autocannon will quickly rack up quite the kill count), and at least he's truthful about who he really is.
>Has children taken, raped, tortured, and brainwashed into Stasis.
>Avoids getting blood directly on his hands by making subordinates carry out his orders.
>Manipulates both sides of the conflict for even more personal gain.
>Gets away scot-free while everyone else is dead/dying.
No wonder Theo became the Master; if he can't be happy, no one can. I wonder if he's destined to fight Yuuya or PTSD Takeru and die to either of them, in that particular universe.
>>Gets away scot-free while everyone else is dead/dying.
Axmann dies at the end. His hostage plan goes tits up and he gets shot trying to make his escape.
Don't trust animesuki spoilers. They actually thought Martin was Iris's bro (who had a relationship with Gretel).
To be fair, just because one person is less of a dick doesn't mean they're all that nice either. It's like comparing Killer the Butcher and
Gaizock; they're both assholes, but one is only slightly less so.
Axmann's at least funny in a twisted sort of way:
>Axmann forces Lise to kill some kids with a rock, saying that there's a war going on and that she should conserve ammo. He then jokes that a fricken baby has "seen too much," so it has to go too.
Beatrix is just a monster.
>Axmann has fans
>they're trying to say he's better than Beato
Never change /m/, never change.
I haven't finished the novel, so I was assuming the rate of things was that Axemann got away scot-free, as a little over 60% of the spoilers lined up with what I've read thus far with my limited JP knowledge. So thanks for that correction. Still think Theo as the Master is destined to suffer becoming a bloodstain on Takeru's or Yuuya's blade though.
What do you think about all this Beatrix shitting/arguing? Who's right?
As long as Scwarzesmarken and related material aren't translated, things will remain this way. As such, you better pray that the official English Muv-Luv trilogy release will pave the way to those.
>in before dead franchise meme
First Orange, then Burger, and now Ketchup. Where will Kenny take us next?
Objectively, I feel Beatrix did have some legitimately noble intentions, but did not have the means to really carry it all out, resorting to using what she had at her disposal.
Indeed, the similarities to Yuuko are there, where she was focusing on the big picture, beyond the immediate conflict. However, Beatrix didn't have a time-looping assistant, or was a time-looper herself, and wasn't as brilliant as Yuuko, so she couldn't force her own way without having to play by the rules of the Stasi (unlike Yuuko, who was able to bully the UN around enough to get her plan funded and completed in at least one loop).
Basically, being Beatrix is suffering, moreso than Irisdina or Katia or Theo (only Lise would be suffering more). She has to climb the Stasi ladder based on what she does, due to not being super special. She has no one to really support her; her boyfriend and the one man she ever confided in is dead, and while friendly with her squad, she still seemed to have a certain distance, as if she couldn't trust them with her own plans out of concern of having it reported to Axemann, and lose whatever immunity she's had to Axemann's indoctrination as a result.
Pretty good analysis of Beato. Definitely better than most people's.
Probably still misses Jurg greatly too. She'll probably be the mystery person listening to Jurgs last words and the one flashbacking to 1972 in the BiS preamble (inb4 the Irisfags try to say it's Iris).
You have to admit though, the little bit of Beato we got in the PV does not acquit her very well of the charges she's been getting. We'll see by the end of the week who's right though.
This'll be the audience SM will be reeling in when it airs. May God have mercy on us all.
I admit that the recent portrayal of Beatrix doesn't earn the sympathy of many non-rune readers.
I do admit that it also feels like we're only supposed to be seeing things from Theo's PoV. He's been rather biased about things in the novels, although the VN makes him much less of an asshole with alternative choices to certain situations.
But taking it as a whole (BiS), she's just as flawed and relatively human as the others we're supposed to be rooting for in Theo/Iris/Katia.
And I do believe she'd miss Jurgen considerably too; after all, he was the only one not under her father's manipulation/control and the only one she was able to ever confide her life situation to. Practically everyone else was either working for her father and his group or a rival (Iris).
With that said, realistically, I don't believe we'll get a Beatrix end in the second VN, unless it's a technical bad end appended to say, pursuing a theoretical Lise end. The way the Unlimited Yuuko end was a bad end to any other Unlimited end you were pursuing. Right down to where Yuuko was really only using Takeru to comfort herself without ever really opening up, but in SM's case, Beatrix using Theo to comfort herself without really ever opening up.
I'm assuming we'll get Iris normal (dies) and good (lives) ends, and maybe a Lise end.
The PV is apparently showing her executing someone, except she never executes anyone herself in the LN
( Not even Schmidt iirc, it's some soldiers from Moscow Sect who shoot him ).
So if they are changing this kind of things in the anime, I wouldn't care much about how Beatrix is viewed there.
Her father's the chairman of economic planning and affairs or something, not head stasi. This is corroborated by both official and chinese scanlator sources.
As for everything else, I agree with you. I'll go further and say there probably will be no good ending for her. She'll probably end up
penetratedin all three routes, likely most of them at Theo's hands. Additionally, if she gets the showdown she wants with Iris, she'll get destroyed because Iris is the best living pilot in SM.
She executes a few defectors in Cage of the Stasi (the defectors had even shot at her beforehand). She didn't come off as being too happy though, just cold and even angry. She asked why the hell they did it and then asked for their last words (the leader of the group basically told her that they were all doomed anyways and that she'll get her comeuppance). After quickly killing them, she seemed mentally exhausted. All she said was mission over, let's get back to base, no evil gloating.
Well you've definitely proven your credentials with that spoiler. I remember reading about Schmidt's fate at the end of Volume VII - Chapter III. Beato even does a little smile
while contacting the West and seeing the blood pool around Schmidt's body. Probably one of her most badass moments.
One thing a lot of Beatoshitters don't get is that Beatrix saved everybody when she stopped
Schmidt's Frodo Optionfrom going through.
Well TSFiA stories will certainly not be covered by the anime, so I really guess they are changing some things ( Or maybe they just did a great job on the trailer and it's actually mixing scenes to give the illusion of being one, but the goal of that would totally be to make Beatrix look like a real bitch )
Yeah, the whole
Schmidt deathscene was so good to read.
And I totally agree about the fact that most people tend to forget that East Germany
hasn't been nuked the fuck outthanks to her.
This is the Kiminozo anime director. 1:1 adaption is a lot less important to him than maximizing drama within the scope of anime running time.
Remember people still hate Takayuki to this day because prequel culling and route mixing in that makes Mitsuki look slutty and him look like a particularly worthless piece of shit, but the show on its own still made a pretty significant impression.
I told you to wait until the anime came out.
Don't worry, I read it.
Does she really miss Jurgen? I'm an EoP, but from the first fout chapters, there doesn't seem to be much love loss between her and Jurg. She doesn't even refer to him by name, just "[Iridina's] traitorous brother" in her internal monologue. It seems as if Irisdina misses Jurg way more, unless this is contradicted by later passages.
Oh God, we're going to have a fresh wave of adamant misinterpreters, aren't we. Anime is going to send Irisfag numbers through the roof. I just hope they keep some moral ambiguity in who's really right.
You have like the shortest attention span of any fanfic writer ever. All your stuff isn't necessarily bad, but it is generally weird and ends before it can ever really take off.
I'm desperately starved for ML stuff, so I'll take even shitty ML fanfics at this point (but not Paulxion, fuck his writing style, even if he's a ESL).
It's funny that all the guys who've (provably) read the LNs all love Beato.
>LN that basically exists as Beatrix fanservice
>read by Beatrix fans
Well, she is on the side which purged him, so it's in her interest to not say that she misses him, else she could be considered as a traitor too. And as she doesn't trust anyone enough to say that kind of personal thing, it's normal that she seems to not give a fuck about him in conversations.
BiS (and some of Requiem) is Beatrix fanservice.
SM (and some of Requiem) is actually very negative towards Beatrix. Iris is obviously the main girl in it.
Nothing can be fully trusted, just because the narration never really makes a clear statement about who is right. It'll cover in detail what the characters are thinking and show their (correct or incorrect) conclusions, but it never really states "Theo was right" or "Iris was wrong." SInce Theo is the main character, his introspection and analysis is the one that gets displayed the most.
This was in her internal monologue, something she was saying in her head, to nobody else. She was thinking about how, despite Irisdina turning in her "traitorous brother" it still "doesn't prove that she's not a traitor herself."
Because that's what Jurgen's pet name for her in Bernhard im Schatten.
If you translate this, it says "Wait/Stop Beato!"
Doesn't roll off the tongue as well.
Also, allusions to another famous and sadistic Beato.
Beat or Beato both sound alright. It's a nickname/pet name, they usually sound kinda stupid.
Sorry, kinda out of the loop. When does the anime air?
It'll show Sunday morning in Japan, so that means Saturday over Western world.
Yeah, it would've allowed you to get a better grasp on character personalities (unless you've read the LN/VN, then it's whatever). They seemed pretty in character though, even if the overall scenario is cooky.
Do you think you'll be continuing it?

So by morning, he means really early in the morning.
Does that mean
Beatrix's penetration, Inghilde's disembowlement, Vivi's torn in half, Lise's Wingwoman's bisection, and Pham's gibbingwill all be shown in HD cause I don't think I could handle that ;_;?
Beato's penetration won't, unless they go out of their way to make her as vile as possible, in which case they'll make sure to show her suffering. Pham is likely to be a cut away too. The others will probably be shown though.
Considering how they are showing Beato so far, I'm pretty sure they won't respect the LN and do their shit by showing it.
I wonder for Pham though, as it's already pretty much described in the LN so I don't really see why they wouldn't show it if they go all out for the others.
They probably don't want the audience sympathizing with her, so that means no BiS. Also, we probably will get the
penetrationscene in graphic detail. I'm imagining something like Scirocco's or Nena's death from Gundam, just with more blood. I say Pham'swould be quick, because she's pretty much there one moment, and a bloody mess the next.
I dunno if I'll write more. I guess I could go the Bad End route where Beatrix sweet talks Inghild into coming over to the Stasi and helping her wipe out all the traitors with her proto-00 Unit powers.
Buuuut if I let the fic stay on its current course and just keep ripping off the first season of Viper, Inghild will end up telling both halves of 80s Germany to fuck off, hijack the proto-Susanoo for herself, and join a third underground resistance faction while maintaining the prot-Susanoo with a stash of stolen Stasi money.
It's like she gets fluffier every time I see a different picture of her.
Her anime counterpart is not as cute.
Annette and her grew up together and were best friends. When Annette enlisted, she dragged Inghilde with her despite knowing she wasn't made for the military. It wasn't all bad though, she fell in love while she was in with another pilot from her home town (who later died).
After Inghi's death, Annete felt immensely guilty for pressuring her friend to join and ends up taking it out on Theo.
Playing through the VN, right? So are you talking about the scene where he smacks Katia around before trying to strangle her, burning the only memento of her father and her most cherished possession, being an insensitive ass to Annette, all the shit he does in the second half of SM, or all the shit he does in TE?
Why does Theo get so much hate? He can't be that bad? He's been through a ton of shit and he has a super evil psycho stasi lady on his ass, so it's kinda reasonable that he doesn't have it all together. He's also the cutest Age boy to date.
>Why does Beatrix get so much hate? She can't be that bad? She's been through a ton of shit and she has a super evil psycho rebel man on her ass, so it's kinda reasonable that she doesn't have it all together. She's also the cutest Age girl to date.
Surprising how it works so well.
I wonder if it means something...
He's definitely a cute, I'll give you that.
Beatrix is the one who signed up for the stasi. Beatrix is the one antagonizing the 666. Beatrix is the one planning to have Iris murdered. Theo wouldn't much care about Beatrix, but she struck first and continued to strike until Theo had had enough.
I'd call living in fear of you or your family being abducted at random, tortured, raped and killed for no reason while watching your suicidally government steer you into an iceberg grounds for striking first. Hell, I'd say Beatrix and the stasi struck first by forcing people to live in those conditions.
It was Beatrix, Axmann, and other stasi who decided to peruse those terror tactics and extreme measures. The Soviets by that point had very little actual power over the western Warsaw Pact. The most they could do was bribe and bluster.
>It was Beatrix, Axmann, and other stasi who decided to peruse those terror tactics and extreme measures
Aww, too bad this shows you don't know what you are talking about.
It was only Schmidt who made the Stasi what they became. Axmann used the situation but didn't made it up himself.
Are you seriously using the Nuremberg Defense right now?
I wonder what the German Anons think about the situation in SM and the whole Iris vs Beato thing? You think since they actually had to deal with the stasi and shit, they'd feel more strongly one way or another. Would they be more inclined to side with Iris and the Rebels, or would they waifu Beatrix and support the stasi?
This is not the face of "someone just following orders."
You call that the face of a highly motivated soldier?
This right here is what motivation looks like.
Doesn't the author have a say in this. You'd think if he wanted Beatrix to be a complex character, he wouldn't be too happy with the anime turning her into a female Tomato-Bloodman.
The one DeutscheTunte I know of is a huge Beatrixfag.
I've hardly met any where I'm from, the only person I've met to actually have any preexisting knowledge of Muv Luv had read the Unlimited manga only. Trying to spread the Luv among my weeb friends is hard because hurr durr too long hurr durr extra.
You seem to be operating under a misconception, friend. I would not stain my hands with something as vulgar and impure as blood. If you were to only look more closely, you'd find it is but
If you follow the post trail, you'd see that he's responding to some dumb Irisfag making the claim that Axmann is more moral than Beatrix. That first greentext was a direct quote from said idiot.
But it made all his evil actions more believable.
Being able to manipulate both sides, being able to order the rape and indoctrination of young children taken by the Stasi, being authoritative enough to basically command a large portion of the Stasi.
The ick factor just helps make him even more vile.
Yeah. Axmann was responsible for training many stasi. Girls like the officer who tried to have Katia raped, and then was so fanatical that she tried to charge a group of gun wielding NVA with a knife despite them kinda wanting to let her go is just proof of his methods.
I don't know why they changed him. The only reason I could think would be to make him more of a rival to Theo. Maybe they weren't meeting a requisite pretty boy quota?
I think it's more to sate his perversity. Axmann loves soiling what he sees as innocent or pure. What is more innocent or pure looking than a young virgin girl (he was getting a massive boner when he saw Katia)? He could've had Theo inducted, but the boy just become a means to an ends for Lise. He already had all the evidence, he didn't need Lise to confess, but he still decided to break her, and he used Theo to break her. Once he had Lise entrapped, he let Theo go. Lise even speculated that it was never about her parents attempting to emigrate, once Axmann saw her it was all over.
So Zero's started working on an English translation for BiS:
Guy was responsible for much of SM's Chinese scan/translation. Pretty cool dude, but he's very much better at Japanese and Chinese than English.
And that's why he couldn't keep his promises to his "princess." He had the intelligence, but he wasn't ruthless or merciless enough. Morality will get you killed in the shitsack that is the DDR. Theo understood this, and that's why he's alive and Jürgen isn't.
>The MLTeam, in the 300k surplus theories
>There's something bigger than Schwarzesmarken, but the devs said we should wait for their announcement once their hands are no longer full.
Holy shit. I would have said 300k wouldn't be enough to translate the entirety of SM ( Even if it's " just " the VN ), but now they are talking about something bigger ?
What the fuck is going on ? Are they just adding the surplus to some funds of the studio and translate all the things they can or what ?

It would cost way more than that, probably 5 to 6M to do a really good adaptation honoring the series.
I prefer to wait and maybe even never have it than getting a TE level adapation of the main trilogy.
>She was at the top of her class and excellent at sports. Not only was she popular with her classmates, but with kids from all the other grades in school too.
>It almost seemed to good to be true, having a perfect younger sister like this.
Irisdina confirmed for best gril.
>"I would describe [Beatrix] as…strong. Maybe as strong as a demon, even——"
Ha, already getting compared to a demon. Beatrix a shit.
>Well, if Iris ever had a boyfriend, I would have no choice but to duel him. Luckily, there were no present signs of her having one which was good for me. I didn't want unnecessary bloodshed if I could help it. Even in just a hypothetical scenario, I didn't want to think about having to fight someone.
I guess that answers the question of whether Jurgen would get along with Theo. Theo would be screwed if Jurgen were still around.
I wish there were more. The interaction between Jurgen and Iris was pretty good.
Can't really see the holy grail, a trilogy anime, being produced. Maybe something to do with another spin-off, or maybe just empty hype. Who knows?
>>There's something bigger than Schwarzesmarken, but the devs said we should wait for their announcement once their hands are no longer full.
OH guys, you know well what it is,
a new itasha
It's really not surprising since half the "fan translations" in the Chinese LN scene were just rips of the official Chinese releases.), and they had a server in Japan of all places.
He's not really. Give it a shot and see for yourself, it's not exactly long. Unless you're one of those who wants to limit himself so as to internalize and empathize Theo's opinions and prejudices better, BiS, like Requiem, would only enhance your SM experience.
It's been updated by the way. The second part hasn't been proofread by the wiki staff yet, so it's not exactly as coherent as the firs half.
Also, dat foreshadowing:
>[Iris to Jurgen] "Then I will call [the] police to arrest you as a suspicious person."
He's too strange and too much of a clown to be a full Marty Stu. I'm actually really liking him so far, especially when compared to Theo.
Iris is pretty mean to Beatrix, calling her a slut and demon and shit.
But then she goes on to describe her after being prodded as feeling older than everybody else because she's so "mature and beautiful" and "talented."
Maybe a little bit of jealousy?
>I guess what I am trying to say is, Katia is really easy on the eyes.
