<<To all TSF's, we are getting back Berlin today!>>
Official Schwarzesmarken soundtrack by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd is the best fit for current events, comrades.

So what did we learn today?
>TANKS BTFO TSF FACE TO FACE
>STASI MIG'S are really sneaky
>Wessie has best ass
>Poor officer dies defending general
>AK kills Gretel
>Beatrix is evil
A burst hitting the torso area from the side.
High chance of bullet hitting bones etc.
7.62x39 is actually somewhat better then 7.62x51 NATO at close range.
Iris's a useless character, a damsel in distress, who requires a charming prince (Theodor) to achieve her rescue.
Only if it's the will of the party.
Why are we here? Just to sufer?
You, I like you
thanks for the laugh on this shitty moment
I'd rather her win the T than Katia desu senpai
It's not a broken bone. It's a penetrated bone and anything behind it fuged up.
A ak bullet is worse if it strikes abone then if it does not.
So instead of even being beat up, ever, Iris is just staring at that cake and hearing Beatrix taunt her occasionally.
I really don't see how they're going to make Iris' death emotional.
Must have been a lucky bullet that missed everything vital.
It's the sadistic Yukari Tamura, isn't it?
Anett has more screen time than Iris.
>where is the aliens damn it
Axmann's new fuccboi suspiciously looks like Jurgen
At the end of volume 5, all the 666 squadron gets arrested by the stasi, except for Theo and Katya who manages to escape, along with Gretel who I think was in Berlin at the time. Theo's Mig 21 get shot down during the escape, and then he along with Katya wander in a forest until Gretel finds them along with the rebels. They move to the rebels headquarters and meet General Heim, the leader there. After this Theo goes to rescue the members of the squadron after getting information about were they were held. He finds everyone there except for Irisdina, whose whereabouts is unknown at the time. Even though he made it in time before the stasi killed anyone of the squadron, they were all exhausted from torture; Walter had his bones freakin folded, and pham lost all her back tooth. After freeing them, they start escaping, but Liz finds them and tries to stop them, were after Theodore engages her in a fight. In this fight, Pham tries to make the siblings stop fighting, however apparently Liz gets annoyed by this, and her response was shooting her with a 36mm round, which blew the upper half of Pham's body. At the end, theodore successfully defeats Liz in his Mig-21, and she is then taken in by the rebels.
They go back to the base and start questioning liz, which then leads to the rebels asking Theodore to execute Liz himself, which he does after hugging her. Meanwhile katya was headed to were the execution was to try and stop it, but was too late as she heard the gunshot from a distance, at which she crumbled to the ground. Now in command of the 666th TSF squadron, Gretel has a conversation with Annette telling her that Theo had no choice but to kill his sister if he wanted to stay and fight with the rebels, as they suspected him of collaborating with the stasi, since his sister was an agent after all. Theodore meanwhile all alone in a room, apparently breaking down from the fact the he shot Lizu, and during this Katya shows up to try and help him. She tried and talking to him in order to make him keep going on, and I think she mentioned that she loves him. He almost attacked Katya and wheeped, and she embraced him. After this, encouraged by Katya, Theodore, Gretel, and Annette move out to rescue Irisdina after they learned her whereabouts from Lizu, with Theodore being very determined to not let her die. Walter and Sylvia stayed in the base since they were too injured to fight from the torture, and I remember a scene were Sylvia cuddled with Walter.
The analdevastation would reach critical levels
Now the scene returns to Beatrix and her unit and showing them finally arrive at the rebels base and staging a pre-preemptive strike, which leaves the headquarters in rabbles. However at that point, Walter and Sylvia, having stayed at the base because of their injuries, launch their TSFs and engage the stasi. They somehow survive the attack, and Beatrix eventually leaves the base, thinking that she killed Heim. Fortunately, the remaining soldiers finds Heim, and relocate along with Sylvia and Walter. Now, Theodore and Annette arrives at the base, with Theodore supervising the maintenance of his Mig-23, and being very worried about Gretel. Annette tells him that she'll be fine, and then tells him to go and eat something. Now, the rebels somehow got the location of Irisdina, and heim called up the remaining members of the 666th, telling them that rescuing Irisdina is their top priority, as she is a symbol of hope for east germany. I will post the rest soon.
The scene starts with Theodore and Irisdina sitting somewhere while Theodore watches a medic patch Irisdina. He mentions in his monologue that these injuries are going to make it difficult for her to rest or sleep, her nails from all fingers have been removed after all. A small conversation between them takes place, with Irisdina telling him that she didn't think that she was going to die since she knew that the unit would come for her. They talk about some stuff and Theodore blushes, and then she reminds him of what she told him at the end of volume , which is basically that after all of this is over, they will go over to the villa south of Berlin that belonged to Theodore family. And while she knew about the death of the members of her unit, she was saddened, but as Theodore mentioned she wouldn't let appear on her face. Theodore then moves to fight Beatrix after getting a few tips from Irisdina on how to beat her, and in the end he manages to finish her off(to my surprise) by stabbing the control unit of the mig-27 with his knife. Beatrix speaks a few lines, which Theodore interprets to be her final words, after which she dies.
Now Theodore returns to the rebel's base, however everyone who was supposed to be guarding Irisdina is completely silent. Theodore makes his way to were she is, only to find her lying down, with Katia and Annette besides her. Katia's face was already drenched with tears, and then Annette explains to Theodore that Axman attacked the area, going after Katia's life. However, Irisdina shielded her, and got fatally shot in the abdomen. Axman mentions that as a reward for making it easy to kill her, he will let her die slowly, and leaves afterwards. Irisdina then looks at Theo, and speaks weakly and telling him its fine, since her part is done, and then looks at Katia and tells them not to grieve her death. She asks about Beatrix, and Theo tells her that she shouldn't have suffered much. She then tells Theodore that she wants to see the Berlin without the wall seperating east and west, and Theodore carries her and takes her to his mig-23. In the magazine, there's a picture of Theodore holding her, the same way takeru holds sumika, and yuuya holds cryska. They take off, and fly over Berlin, and Irisdina watches Berlin, telling Theodore that she is happy that germany is not divided anymore. Theodore watches people from the east and west, hugging each other like old friends, and then starts talking to Irisdina, but there is no answer. Theodore, knew what this means, and holds back his tears. He looks at her face, and see a content look on her dazzling face, but still decides to keep talking. He tells her that he loved her, and that he wanted her to find happiness more than anyone else, and keeps flying on. The scene ends here.
Now, apparently some time later, Heim tells Theodore that they need him on the frontlines, however he does so unwillingly since it hasn't been much since Irisdina's death, and as such he is worried about Theodore. Theodore takes the whole thing calmly, and meets up with Katia and Annette, the remaining pilots of the 666th. They speak about Irisdina, and Theodore mentions that she told them not to grieve. Katia is very worried about Theodore, and tries to talk to him to help him become better, but he pets her head, telling her that everything would be fine. Theodore mentions in his monologue that the face of Katia isn't the face of a kid anymore, but the face of the girl who helped break the Berlin wall through operation Ursula; in other words she matured. While walking to the TSFs, Annette mentions that the army is thinking of reforming the 666th. Now, as the commander of his unit, Theodore has matured greatly, and decides to keep going to get a better future for his country, and the scene ends up with him walking to his mig-23.
The epilogue makes a few time skips, telling the conditions of Germany and Europe in each period of time like how Germany was evacuated when the beta finally crushed all the efforts of the German army. It also mentions that Theodore sometimes saw Irisdina in his dreams, and he would ask her stuff like that he was worried that her wound was painful and so on.
In general, the series ended on an optimistic note, despite all the death and the crap everyone had to go through, especially Theodore who lost the woman he loves and the only family remaining for him. As for me, I really cried at her death, since like Theodore, I really wanted her to find happiness. I was charmed by Irisdina because she is Irisdina, and because I really doubt there will be such an amazing heroine with all the amazing character traits that she has, and of course, I really doubt someone will be able to create a more beautiful character.
In the author's comments, Uchida mentions that schwarzesmarken is part of a bigger project, so apparently the story isn't over yet, and as such he mentions that there will be news about a sequel or continuation in the future, although he doesn't mentions if the future stories will feature the remaining characters, which are Theodore, Katia, and Annette.
Another thing: If you read the summaries, you will find out that it's strongly hinted that Karrel, Irisdina's brother, survived. Also, Gretel's death left lots of room for doubt about her actual demise, and as such I have a feeling that she survived.
All in all, it's been such a crazy ride, and well, this story is more amazing than the original muv luv and total eclispe, but is as sad however. It's funny how we all read the chapters with anticipation while we knew that europe will fall at sometime, and that most of the characters won't survive. Even though we knew this, I kept reading, and I think that this added to the stress of reading schwarzesmarken; that's right, it wasn't easy reading this story, since there was death all over, and because the characters were amazing it really hurt when they died, and because Carnelian illustrated the characters. Sending such beautiful characters to their brutal or tragic death is just too much, and while I think it was really fortunate that Carnelian was the illustrator, it also made it many times more painful.
Ow I forgot to mention that Krike survived as well.
Draw trash, call it protagonist.
why it's even allowed?
Grappler please go
Your attack is the worst.
Told you, she is not death
So are we going to get a repeat of this scene with Beatrix next week?
Reminder that Yuuya was in SM, and he was part of Axmann's fuccboi harem.
I love how all the Werewolves cry before dying.
I could see it happening like that. She'd probably grip the knife to hold herself up too as she spits out her last words.
>Theo's a bitch by the way. At least he's guilty enough where he feels like shit after finishing her off. The whole time he's like "Please just die, stop sobbing and talking to me."
>Also, the most important line is:
Beatrix wanted him to kill her, especially after getting a call from the West that the deal wasn't going to work out. It's pretty depressing stuff.
Also, Beatrix isn't really that evil. Even Theo ends up admitting it in the end. Theo even calls her the spiritual pillar propping up the government forces. When she died, the loyalist aligned stasi and NVA are so disheartened that they surrender en-masse. Another poignant line is Theo stating that if he hadn't become infatuated with Iris, he might have ended up in Beatrix's camp (Martyrs noncanonical route, anyone).
He also admits later on that she was concerned with humanity as a whole rather than just East Germany.
The anime is really, really fucking Beatrix up.
>Time to update with new squaks.
No,I´m more Farka than you and I can prove it. Pic related.
Who's ready to see one of the sexiest Muv-Luv's ever get dicked next episode?
I wonder what faces she'll make. Will her grunts and squeaks be as boner-inducing as the other Werewolf girls?
Being anime-original with elements of the original ending taken into consideration, I'll concede that here there's a more open possibility of Gretel surviving.
Yeah, she's shot and bleeding out, but she wasn't really in any immediate danger of being engulfed in the flames and she was still alive when the shot cut away, so who knows.
Next episode, I guess.
Next week is failed Yuuko 2.0 penetration. Most of the SM characters are much more shittier versions of the cast from the trilogy. I'm starting to like Bea more but she could've done it in a much more effective way than killing your future troops.
Every Werewolf is Farka now.
I want to believe, but it's hard, so very hard
2.5 gen TSF is where humanity went fast and furios
Third gen is when they added edge
They are based on planes because they need speed/mobility due to laser class BETA.
>The director did not want to show the stasi in a good light
>He wanted to turn it into black and white story to honor the victims of the stasi.
As someone who hasn't read the LN, and am waiting on trying the VN in a few years. I kinda thought they were a squad the was more along the lines of better tech, less experienced pilots of a couple exceptions.
See, I've heard unconfirmed murmurings that the director basically doubled down on depriving the prominent Stasi characters of complexity and making the organisation incompetent because he acknowledges that the Stasi actually existed and affected people, as though that would matter to people in Japan or any viewers in Germany within their target audience.
>tfw based Soviets almost saved us from the Stasi
