New PV out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IauR3QlFsz4
Looking pretty good so far.
With all the side material incorporated, it's amazing. If you restrict yourself purely to Vol 1-7, it's OK. Requiem and BiS is almost a requirement if you want to get the full story. Some characters (like Sylwia, Gretel, and Beatrix) go from absolutely unlikable cunts to top tier waifus when you know their backstories.
Hopefully the anime will find some way to fit that shit in.
The MiG-21 is meant to look lame to show how outmatched they are against the newer designs.
Iris likes to tell jokes to lighten things up, so you'll get some "cheesy bantz."
Beatrix is a sociopath, slut, and all around cunt. Runs concentrations camps, gets off on torturing people, and shoots babies. The only reason she has fans is because she's hot.
Iris is by far the better package. She may not by an 11/9 like Beatrix, but she's still a real looker, is funnier, more intelligent, has a better personality, more interesting and charismatic, and is just all around best girl.
There's a reason why everyone whose played the VN are all Irisfags.
>implying Beatrix wasn't the backstabber
I just don't see Iris willingly selling out her bro. Also, you don't reach Beatrix's level of evil without already being a few screws loose to begin with. Beatrix was always a monster, it just lay in dormant until the stasi gave it a chance to surface.
Reading all the shit Beatrix does is pretty rage inducing. How could anyone waifu her is beyond me.
Dead thread, dead franchise,
Holy shit, where did all the Beatrix haters come from? It's like watching Esdesu's rise and fall, except the anime hasn't even come out yet.
Welcome back lads
Wouldn't be Muv Luv otherwise
Not posting the colored version.
Most you'll get in SM is kissu scenes and
Not keeping the better pictures in Reserve, for when a thread need bumping.
Why did they shorten it like that.
Who are you talking about? Only childhood friends I can think of is:
Unless you mean Theo-Lise, but they're adopted siblings, not childhood friends.
Your waifu is one of the most vile people in all of animu.
Hope you know that.
That's Katia. She's not a childhood friend, but definitely the token Moe.
Theo's canon love is Iris.
Remember when scanfag was going to do the Anthology? Me neither,
Theo is best Muv-Luv boy.
Prove me wrong.
Anyone who disagrees is a disgusting waifufag still mad that best boy did what had to be done.
She's absolute shit tier. Think Esdesu, but without any of the charm and played straight. Really takes something to be the fucking hottest girl in the cast and still be the most repulsive.
Not Walter or Abe-kun?
Those dubs are wasted on you.
She has ridiculously shitty design, so Beatrix already wins there by far. She also comes with a dumb backstory, which makes for an all-around unappealing character.
>but also way more evil.
They're on the same level, and at least I can stomach it in Muv Luv. AgK just makes me laugh from how stupidly idiotic the writing is on every aspect. Schwarzesmarken is by no means fantastic or anything like that, but don't even compare it to the absolute bottom tier trash that is AgK.
Muv Luv is in the title you nigger. If you expect anything less then it's your fault.
Beatrix is played straight, so she comes off as more evil. Sure, Esdeath does a lot of the same shit, but her actions and the setting itself are so over the top it's almost funny. Beatrix also doesn't really get any scenes to humanize her. Every time she pops up, she just get's worse and worse.
Doesn't TDA disappear when Takeru dies?
I cant say that it is good or bad, I just know that it is /k/
The difference is that Takahiro designed Esdeath to be kinda likable (arguable if he actually succeeded). Beatrix is meant to be a hatesink, like Nui was in KLK.
Look at that little smirk she gives as she executes the prisoner in OP's PV and tell me that's not the smile of a completely evil person.
>no deeper motivation, just wants to hurt people
>probably helps run the stasi concentration camps
>petty and jealous, begrudges Irisdina for years because Iris made better scores than her when they were at the academy.
>tries to ruin Iris and all her friends because of above
>willing to shoot unarmed civvies with her TSF
>mentally tortures Theo first chance she gets just because
>wants to have a 15 year old girl tortured just because muh suspicions
>is a cunt to absolutely everybody, so much so even her boss
tries to get her killed
Lise'slink to her Theoto spy on the 666, knowing that the stress would probably drive her subordinate mad
>uses her subordinates to
get false info to the rebels, knowing that they'd likely be captured so she could spring her trap
likely had Pham and Sylwia raped, along with having Walter's bones folded
But at least she's sexy, right?
Spoiler for the first casualty.
;_; . Fucking East Germans, don't know how to look after waifus.
Poles are joining that defense line as well. Hence the fucked up grammar of the "Schwarze Marken" (ie. explained by the story that some Commie Pole officer butchered the German language to create the nickname for the 666th Squadron, which earned fame and hate after years of combat at that defensive line)
Kurt'swaifu, the QT Ukrainian.
Because Axmann and Beatrix like it that way.
The only positive she has is that she's hot. There are far superior girls in the cast if you're willing to look beyond appearances. Iris is obviously best, but if you want a girl who is nearly as hot and not the worse thing since Hitler, you're better off with Sylwia.
Why do they need some many stories of the same thing? Humanity is doomed no matter what, so why do they need to just keep making more of this shit? The girls are the only somewhat decent thing, but jesus christ the same face in all of this is horrendous.
>Humanity is doomed no matter what
What? There was almost an UNDERSTANDING end in Alternative, but then Meiya sliced that down. Still managed to kill the Superior though, so they'll be able to take out the rest of the baters.
>all these Beatrix shitters
I'm surprised /a/'s just taking this lying down. I place faith in Cookie, and if Cookie's favorite SM is Beato, than she's clearly more than just a raging, mindless psycho like these haters are saying.
>Sougo and ORENJI
This pleases me greatly.
killedthe canonically hottest grill though.
Good lord, the Irisfags are out for blood today.
Posting TSFs from the official website.
Interesting how they try to use shading and lines to make it look vaguely 2-dimensional
inb4 people call the Bundeswehr "nazis"
I guess she couldn't handle his girth.
So we finally got an ass shot of Beatrix courtesy of the official anime art/design book. With that in mind, we can sit down and talk about what's truly important:
>How many babies?
Remember when people were still in denial before the recent VA reveal? Good times.
Looks like Yui finally has some competition because that is one delicious ass. Guess the LN wasn't lying when it was basically calling her Venus in mortal form.
>not scrounging 2ch for the full size
Now then, how many fucking babies?
First generation TSFs have always had fat asses and thunder thighs.
I'd multiply and be fruitful with Irisdina.
>dat face fondling
>dat distressed look on Irisdina's face
Why not have a bit of heaven and a bit of hell, anon?
We're not getting much of anything unfortunately.
I have a good feeling about this adaptation, friends.
but really, what is the point of SM, when it covers absolutely nothing important historically
Depends on what you consider fun
Best girl. Not even German, I guess that says something about East Germans.
They suck dick. West Germany for life, mates.
There is no Ost, there is not West, there is only Deutschland.
Soweit die deutsche Zunge klingt und Gott im Himmel Lieder singt, das soll es sein.
Das ganze Deutschland soll es sein.
So basically you're trying to say since Iris is dead, he had to settle with Katia, but shit happened in Germany and sent their only daughter to Japan but died because of an invasion too. Katia died, Theo finally lost everything, and then on top of that he found out Yuuko is playing with his daughter's brain. So he helped spear Alternative V because fuck this Earth. He let the HSST drop but failed. He then died a horrible death similar to Ingrid's after being hunted down by Mikoto's dad which is why they stopped interfering after Alternative IV came into fruition.
Shame he becomes a terrorist, would've been a pretty good MC otherwise.
Get fucked, commie scum. You're no kamerad of mein.
Beatrix was a pretty awesome heroine until she became a secret policewoman.
>not remembering BETTER DEAD THAN RED vs. JAPANESE DOLL
>being so new that you didn't watch the TE anime with /a/
Isn't Jurgen a pedo for dating a girl 3-4 years younger than him when he's around 17-18?
Most of the grils get
penetrated, not chomped. There's still a few who die to more traditional ML means though.
Dude, the anime hasn't even started and it's this bad. Beato and Iris are also way better opposites/foils than Yui and Cryska, not to mention they're actively trying to kill one another.
Nah, I just stayed outta the threads. I've been on and off of here since '07.
You're still making gifs after all these years?
Beatrix isn't even in the running for Theo's CIWS, which makes it all the funnier. I'm pretty sure Cryska wasn't getting called the "worse thing since Stalin", nor were there comments mentioning how Yui should never have been born. The reason why it doesn't seem so bad is that the Beatofags aren't very confrontational (probably because many of them waifu Iris on the side unlike the Irisfags). They seem content to just roll over and take it. Admirable, but foolish, as it allows loudest, most vicious and irrational Irisfag opinions to take root.
The one thing they can do to shut down all the "Beato should be spit-roasted over an open flame" or "Beato is worse than Pol Pot and Hitler combined" sort of comments is BRING UP THE PREQUEL, holy shit!
Oh well, Polechan and Lise are my favorite, so I suppose I don't care too much who wins the inevitable Iris vs Beato war. And really, in SM, everybody loses.
Webms now, I still regurgitate 2ch/futaba gifs though.
You do know that East Germany took a lot of Vietnamese boat-people, right? And that they are amongs the most productive and best integrated immigrants in whole of Germany, right?
Unlike West-Germany, with their Turkroach menace that did nothing but to spread islam and cancer to the reunified German state.
Wessie should go die.
Shitty aldnoah zero like copy and paste CGI mechas right from the start, way to kill the hype for a show.
It'd be chaos for mah
Second game has three routes. We don't really know what Kouki has planned, but I got my fingers crossed.
Iris = Fate
Beato = Nanoha
And they're actually trying to murder each other instead of befriending.
>You do know that East Germany took a lot of Vietnamese boat-people, right?
What are you smoking? Vietnamese boat people were FLEEING communism; what possesses you to think they would emigrate to another communist country?!
How would you guys react if BiS ends with Iris willingly turning in Jurgen and Beatrix being forced by Axmann to execute him?
You are confirmed to be a retard. American, I assume?
>East Germany began to invite North Vietnamese students to attend study and training programmes there as early as the 1950s; cooperation expanded in 1973, when they pledged to train a further 10,000 Vietnamese citizens in the following ten years. In 1980, they signed an agreement with the reunified Socialist Republic of Vietnam for enterprises in East Germany to provide training to Vietnamese; between 1987 and 1989. The East German government viewed industrial trainee programmes not just as a means to increase the labour supply to local industry, but also as development aid to the poorer members of the socialist bloc. By the mid-1980s, Vietnamese, along with Mozambicans, comprised the main groups of foreign labourers in the GDR. From a population of just 2,482 in 1980, the number of Vietnamese residents of East Germany grew to 59,053 by 1989, with the largest influx in 1987 and 1988. They were concentrated mainly in Karl-Marx-Stadt, Dresden, Erfurt, East Berlin, and Leipzig. Their contracts were supposed to last for five years, after which they would return home.
>Vietnamese guest workers received salaries of roughly M400/month, of which 12% went to the government of Vietnam, and another portion was paid in consumer goods—mainly sewing machines, bicycles, clothes, sugar, and soap—instead of cash, due to inflation. In terms of their characteristics and relations to mainstream society, they were almost the exact opposite of the boat people: they were the elite of their country of origin, rather than refugees from it, and they knew that they would leave Germany, so put forth little effort towards integrating into East German society or learning the local language. Despite the official rhetoric of socialist brotherhood, personal contacts between Vietnamese trainees and their German co-workers were discouraged; furthermore, pregnancies among female Vietnamese workers were punished by forced abortions. They were sometimes subject to xenophobic violence, and even when their physical safety was maintained, they became the target of resentment due to their preferential access to consumer goods. Despite their thoroughly socialist context, many helped their families to become petty capitalists, using raw materials and sewing machines sent back to Vietnam to privately produce fashionable clothing, such as imitation stone-washed jeans, and sell it to their neighbours.
To bad Theo falls in love with Iris by the end of the first VN. The other routes will probably just be different takes on the main Iris route.
I'm an Irisfag, but dammit, I want to choose her, not have the game railroad me. It was the same shit with Cryska in TE.
Cryska is a good girl who was forced into the spot because of lack of budget. Also two more days til her birthday.
10/10 would love to talk about Marxism-Leninism with her and debate about the implications of historical materialism on the productive forces of the StaMoKap.
The Last Prussian Bastion in an ocean of degeneracy.
Irisdina would've been ML's much hotter version of Merkel if given the chance.
Also, looks like RL Axmann and Schmidt got the final laugh in the end. Ossies control the West and East.
Just makes me wonder what Beatrix is up to.
Yeah, this has something to do with how the DDR pretented to be the oppressed communists and hence have no need to actually deal with the Nazi-past, as "all the Nazis were over there in the West", as they used to say.
In fact, the entire Stasi was made of ex Gestapo-ers.
But same was in the West until the most recently as well, so...
Extraverse Beatrix would be Jürgen's hauseweib. Also, I don't think either he or Beato would really be CDU like Iris would. Don't really know what political party would suit those two, honestly (maybe a Duetschfag can tell me). Beatrix in particular is as gifted and ruthless as Yuuko in the political arena, and Jürgen would be downright nasty with some experience under his belt.
>Beatrix as a house wife
That's extremely cute if you think about it. She'd be the perfect wife and mother
with occasional flashes of trolling/sadism. On the job she'd be absolutely feared but respected.
Was what Theo did to Beato rape? He did overpower her, force her to the ground, and then
penetrateher against her will.
What if I find everything about Beatrix sexual?
She's the main antagonist/final boss and the biggest threat to the heroes.
Not that many people get chomped.
She's the best:
Tw1tch video: planetwarrior/c/7049290 (look at 03:49 for Yukarin's sex voice)
You know, they show why nuking everything is a terrible idea in the prequel story.
So I take it this story is about how be becomes a key player in some world changing conspiracy bullshit.
What did the master do anyways, Alaska shenanigans? Alto v shenanigans?
He mostly tries to sabotage Alt IV for some unknown reason and has a Jame Bond tier super-villain global conspiracy going on involving mercenaries, religious nuts, and refugee rights groups.
I don't get you Beatrix haters. I don't really even hate her anymore, just kinda pity her, same as I do with most of the cast.
Nuking a lander before it could deploy a Hive in North America was the best and most rational choice the US could make.
And although they didn't know it, if that Hive came with a Superior, they also single-handedly saved the planet even with Takeru's multidimensional shounen power ups.
Those BETA fucking shits wouldn't stand a chance if the doctor was in charge.
Her romance plot is so much better than Iris's.
The problem with Iris/Theo is that it's pretty one sided for the majority of the series. Theo get's friend-zoned pretty hard until the final couple of volumes. In comparison, Beatrix/Jurgen hit first base by the second volume and both are very interested in furthering their relationship (the most Theo got was a hug).
How much Fat Polish ta-tas are we gonna get?
>Just makes me wonder what Beatrix is up to.
Probably joined the Society for Legal and Humanitarian Support and spends all day bitching about how former Stasi officers are getting a raw deal.
Takeru would have had to prove humanity's origin wasn't artificial which he simply couldn't have done because even we don't have a clue how life began on earth. And Takeru certainly wouldn't have any evidence and whether Master Bater would approve it is highly under suspicion.
>Tw1tch video: planetwarrior/c/7049290 (look at 03:49 for Yukarin's sex voice)
That'd be more up Axmann's and Schmidt's alley. Beato doesn't seem like the type to sit around and whine about shit.
It'd all be a moot point if she still had Jurgen with her anyways.
Better dead than Red. Don't accept Ost impurities.
I know, that's my point. The best girl is Vietnamese. East German waifus are fucking shit. Shit I tell you.
Big Vietnamese titties. Would love long time.
Yeah, it's mostly a complete package. You don't need to play any of the other MLs to get it, though you might need to have a basic understanding of SM's sidestories (Requiem and BiS) to get the whole story.
They're 50% of the way through translating Extra and have completed the CODEX's glossary.
It's the prequel story. The only thing you need to take from it is that Beatrix and Iris were BFFs, and that Jurgen, Iris's bro, was Beatrix's lover.
Trust me, it'll help explain a whole lot of why Beatrix and Iris are the way that they are in SM, and specifically why they hate each other.
Alright, here's a quick rundown of what is likely to be left out of the anime (because the VN certainly didn't include it). Most of it is found in Requiem, which is outside of the main story:
Beato loved Jurgen. Jurgen made a childhood promise to be with Beato and make her happy. Iris betrayed and got Jurgen killed, and so Beatrix really wants to kill Iris.
Gretel (glasses girl) had a boyfriend who Beatrix arrested because his family was criticizing the government; Gretel becomes a bitch because of this but holds out hope that her Martin is still alive.
Sylwia was betrayed by her best friend and gangraped. Her other friend committed suicide due to all the trauma she took. Sylwia goes full Beatrix and enacts a plan to "accident" the fuck out of her former friend involving BETA. Unlike Beato, Sylwia succeeds, but she has nobody and tries to take her life. Iris saves her, andgives her a purpose. She's a rather distrustful bitch because of the ordeal.
Annete and Inghilde were childhood friends, and Annete dragged her into the military even though she wasn't made for it. Annete feels tremendously guilty over this.
A certain somebody is so loyal to Beatrix because Beato saved her from Axmann and was nice too her. Axmann had her raped, tortured, whored out and forced to murder even infants with her bare hands for his amusement.
Kurt fell in love with a cute Ukranian girl but was unable to protect her; possibly why he's so protective of Katia.
>Sylwia was betrayed by her best friend and gangraped. Her other friend committed suicide due to all the trauma she took. Sylwia goes full Beatrix and enacts a plan to "accident" the fuck out of her former friend involving BETA. Unlike Beato, Sylwia succeeds
I got a justice boner from that
Are there any heretic scum in this thread
Should have just been TDA or Euro Front. Do they not want waifufags on their franchise
Meanwhile in West Germany.
Fucking East Germans don't know how to war like the freedom loving peoples of the West. Only things Ossies are good at is betrayal and snuff porn, which is pretty good.
Looks pretty decent so far, it actually looks better than TE which is a massive step up. Thank god there's something to look forward to at last.
FOR THE GERMAN EMPIRE! FOR MY KING!
Well, these are all just kinds of terrible. I hope we at least get an uncensored one with AT-X
Are you the pillock who showed up in one of the threads, quoted OP describing the division of Germany after WW2, and claimed that alternate history has made you lose your interest?
Surely to enjoy alternate history, you'd need to be at least passingly familiar with actual history, and the division of Germany and the Berlin Wall is one of the core parts of the Cold War which dominated much of the latter half of the 20th Century history.
I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE STUDIO, THE DIRECTOR OR ANYTHING ELSE, WHY IS THIS NOT AIRING IN GERMAN!?
Body - Iris (I think Beato, being stasi, would be physically trained in how to takedown people, so she would probably more athletic overall)
Hair - Iris (Beato's hair is pretty feral looking)
Breast - Beato (bigger, softer, better)
Lips - Beato's mouth pussy is pretty much unmatched
Overall, I'd rather have Beatrix in bed with me. She looks like she'd be the type to be into rough, passionate sex before cuddling afterwards.
She seemed like the perfect waifu to Jurgen.
Here's a little translation snippet for you guys:
"Sooner or later... you will know…"
"...the limitations of your dream... only under stasi dominion…only ideals like mine, will bring hope to humanity..."
[Beato makes a lot of pain noises]
"——I shall be watching how it ends then... in Valhalla... with pleasure…"
I remember you on /m/ Beatohater. Not even a Beatofag (Katiafag here) but you are a special kind of autism. You're anonymous but I still recognize you. That's how autistic you're being.
It's not, but half the cast *are* nutcases.
And yet people listen to him...
From what I've seen, there's two or three of em crawling around /m/, but he's the worse. Thankfully, he usually comes in, drops his load, and gets out. The other two tend to linger.
Nope. Nothing humanity could ever hope to do would have saved the planet. The only chance was to nuke the Original Hive just as it landed. That didn't happen. So humanity on the planet Earth is finished.
Giving humanity a chance at victory required a miracle -- which is what Takeru was. Even if the entire human race unified in the 80s, it STILL wouldn't have been nearly enough. The BETA were just that overwhelming.
Iris's jokes fucking suck, though.
>A Russian and an American satellite meet in orbit. A solar flare cuts their communications with the ground. The Russian satellite then speaks to the American satellite in German. "Guten tag mein kamerad at last we can speak our mother language".
I think I like Beatrix's trolling more than Iris's jokes.
>no German voice acting
Not interested. It will just be Total Eclipse all over again.
They're pretty shit yeah
I find this really endearing
Heh, the joke isn't that bad.
Yeah, if you like raw sadism.
Ugh, everything about Beatrix disgusts me. Her stringy pube-like hair, her slut lips, the blood colored whore eyes, and that all around 1/10 personality; why Jurgen would ever love her and how Iris would ever be friends with her is beyond me.
One mistake shouldn't condemn somebody. Iris is very remorseful over the whole affair and tries to redeem herself for it. She remains strong despite the barbs and insults, and even manages to become a hero in the NVA. I think she's ultimately a better person for it, at least when compared to Beatrix.
Maybe you might get the chance to do it in the VN, though I think there's more satisfaction in putting her down yourself.
Wow, and I didn't think you Beatrixshitters could get any more stupid. Iris is better for turning in her brother and getting over it than Beatrix who lost her true love. If I hit you with a hammer, but felt remorse over it, you'd still be justified in being angry at me, right?
She's been my waifu for the past three years, and that was back when everyone was saying she raped Pham.
Chinese uploaded most of the series. Also, digging through 2ch and Futaba.
This guy gets it.
>Hopefully the anime will find some way to fit that shit in.
You and I both know this aint going to happen.
You don't need that much from the side material to enhance your experience, really, just what's in >>135121507
Course, the LN/VN is really good at putting you into Theo's very flawed/skewed perspective, so you might want to go in blind if you want to get "Theo's" experience. Theo doesn't know about Sylwia's backstory (so he just sees her as a bitch), or the whole Beatrix vs Iris shit (or he probably wouldn't think Iris was an angel). The side material tends to be more neutral, which tends to throws people for a loop.
Pham, Annete, Katia, Iris, and Lise would be the only ones open to Theo.
Gretel is Martin's highschool sweetheart
Sylwia hooks up with Walther
Inghild loves Marco
Mirai is Hannibal's girl
And good luck prying away Beatrix from Jurgen
>All the worst girls are taken
I think Beatrix will be the one to kill Jurgen honestly. Looking at the dates, Strachwitz and all his accomplices were purged in 1978. Jurgen was one of Strachwitz's proteges and Beatrix was a stasi lieutenant by the time she was 17-18 (going off of Gretel's story in Requiem 2), so it's likely she was the one to kill him.
And how do you know? Was it explained in the side stories?
She has good tastes in men but she's still a shit
I guess someone always sulking with heavy expression and slapping peoples for no reasons like Walter wouldn't mind a waifu that does the same thing or worse
