Will the KGB twist be canon to the SM VN?
PSA from the Ministerium für Staatssicherheit
Who are the counter-revolutionaries and what is the goal of their destructive activity?
The bullies, traitors, agents, and West German hirelings who are trying to disrupt our construction with bullying, sabotage, arson, and murder are only the tools of the real culprits, the UN monopolists. As early as 1951, the American Congress authorized $100 million to finance espionage and sabotage in the Soviet Union and Katja's private life. This is widely known. What is less widely known is that the American government approved another $96 million for “anti-Katja underground activity” on 13 June 1953. The notorious West German sabotage and subversion organizations have received a great deal of this money, which they use to finance agents in the DDR.
By law only Genosse Theodore can bully Katia.
Es lebe die Deutsche Demokratische Republik
Anyone have more of these kinds of images?
Well, she really did
The TE anime is crap, don't bother. You're better off downloading the Muv Luv trilogy and playing that.
Official Schwarzesmarken soundtrack by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd is the only soundtrack for current events, comrades.
Also, commissar Gretel just got the Puhdy's last album right before going to REMOVE MORE STASI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxITXgetyQw
Cause he likes busty blondes.
He likes Lise. He always fapped to her and if she were a flat brunette then he would like flat brunettes
>Literally Lise with her hair down on the cover
Jesus Onii-chan how unsubtle can you get.
Theo should let Iris wear the ribbons.
They'll always be no more than his second choice.
You mean force her to wear the ribbons.
Yes, and look at the tats Iris and Beatrix were rocking at 15.
Did Lise's evil-ness infect him?
Well, I think going off of the pictures, Beatrix is still the hottest. Whether as a teenager or an adult.
Iris probably wants to act like Lise, but can't because she has no nii-chan to show off to. Her entire character is defined by her lack of a (live) nii-chan. Give her the ribbons and all those imouto instincts will come flooding back.
I think we can all agree that sensei is the best.
17 year old Beatrix is amazing though. She has the cuteness of her younger self, but the sex appeal of her adult form.
So let's say Jurgen comes back to life, like Takeru does in Ultimate? Would Beatrix pretty much drop everything to be with him? Would it be another case of Lise, and would she still be going after Iris?
She'll do whatever Jürgen tells her too. So if he tell her to stop trying to kill Iris, she'll do it, but she would probably keep trying to mess with her
Yes, but not like shown in the Anime.
>Das Leben der Anderen
you even get some babysmashing in an elevator
Nope, but there are more based characters.
>big titted blonde knight character
She always reminded me of Elicia, but then again, Beatrix reminds me of Annerose.
Beatrix was willing to fuck over the DDR for her dead lover's dreams. Carrying out his ideals is the only thing keeping her going, so I think she'd do anything for Jurgen if he came back. This is assuming she doesn't end up trying to push him away because "muh blood stained hands" or some shit.
If he rejects her though, I could see Beatrix going full murder-suicide. Not as obvious as Lise though, I'd see Beatrix being much more subtle.
>So if he tell her to stop trying to kill Iris, she'll do it, but she would probably keep trying to mess with her
>"Iris will never expect the mountain of paperwork I'm sending her. She'll wish she were dead after she has to fill out all these forms."
But the real question is, what would Beatrix the Ballcrusher do?
She was a hollow shell when he first met her. She even had the whole Rei Ayanami cold shoulder thing going on. Apart from being hot, that was one of the reasons he was initially drawn to her.
I loved what a blatant reference he was
Adult Beatrix bawling her eyes out would be something I'd love to see. Unfortunately, I don't think she has any tears left.
It would be nice to see her play it cool until Jurgen embraces her, then watch her facade slip away and have her crumble into a quivering, sobbing mess right there in Jurgen's arms as all the trauma she's tried to bury over the past 5 years wells up at once.
Jurgen is the only thing that could make her feel again.
I wonder if he had his balls mailed to Beatrix after his death. She could hang them up in her TSF like a set of perverse car charms. Everytime she gets in her TSF, or emasculates somebody, she'll do it with Jurgen in the back of her mind.
Why do I have this feeling Katia feels so out of place and alien in this world.
Humanity is dying.
Everything is bleak on that side of the Iron Curtain.
Her parents got executed.
Everyone is constantly terrorized by their own country.
She was almost killed by real aliens
And she's all bubbly like she was dropped out of a highschool romcom.
I might have exaggerated, but Katia is far too idealistic for someone living in that regime.
Your job as a citizen was to 120% obey what you were told, never question anything and keep your head down.
Someone with her personality I have no idea managed to survive.
is my waifu gonna murder some stashi shits next week?
I hope so, they missed the chance to do superior character development by not cleaving ponytail.
those tits say otherwise
anyways, she is best girl in this fucking nightmare. I'll gladly stick with pstd chan
Only if she takes commissars advice and stops swinging her sword wildly.
WILL THEODOR FINALLY BEAT THE BEATO ON LEVEL 3? FIND OUT ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF THE BLACK MARKS!

Are you telling me in this very shot, that Yui is talking to a friend (albeit the only one she has)?
Her entire moe was based around her being friendless.
I'd be Yui's friend and more.
I don't cheat on my waifu also my waifu is superior because:
>currently not dead
He is going to do some lame ass death where he gets crushed by a TSF.
At least she made it to the very end of the season. It is a shame that we barely get to hear her lovely voice.
Well that's what the VN's are for.
>can't read moonrunes
>have to wait for fucking ever
>Beato-san's soothing voice.
>can't read moonrunes
Will anyone pick it up for translation?
If they decide to localise it we probably won't need to wait as long at least compared to the wait for fan translations.
So I found all the translations compiled into one neat little archive by the wikifags:
When are we going to get Polandballs tho?
Annette and Theo sat on the broken sofa. Annette was pretending to read a magazine. Theo was twirling a dagger in his fingers. The record they had been listening to had stopped a long time ago, but neither one bothered to flip it over. Annette set her magazine down on the empty middle cushion, and stood up.
"I'm going out to get cigarettes. Do you want me to get anything?"
"I hate it when you smoke."
Theo didn't even look up. Annette sighed, and headed to their car. She got in, and drove past the corner store on the end of the block, onto the highway and out of the city. On the seat next to her was a bag with a change of clothes, her scrapbook, and all the cash she could squirrel away in the past six months. After the revolution and the fall of Berlin, she and Theo were the only survivors. They never had much in common, but after losing everyone else, they were both terrified of being alone. They married soon after, and rented this shabby apartment on the outskirts of a nondescript industrial city. Annette hated it. It seemed the only time they even spoke to each other was to pick fights, his trying to get her to have another flashback, or her teasing him for crying out Lise's name and sobbing in bed. It would be fair to say they hated each other, and today, Annette was finally going to be free of him.
Almost out of gas, she pulled into a station. She flipped through her photo album, looking at the faces of all the friends she lost. She watched children smiling and people laughing with one another as they went in and out of the convenience store. She knew she would never have that, but, was it too much to hope for? One Day? She closed her scrapbook and drove home, back to Theo.
She seems to really enjoy her role.
We should ask Stalker.
Might as well learn Japanese considering it would be faster then waiting for the fucking translation.
>She still counts as one right?
No, because everyone is Farka. You're also Farka.
This Beatrix is so seductive. I really wish the anime one would ara~ara.
That's too hard senpai
>tfw you're Farka but everyone steals your name
>That Lise voice
Goddamn what a fucking angel. Terrifying when you make her upset yet so cheerful and carefree when talking about her Onii-chan.
I want to save her
>tfw all the previous episodes squeaks and squeals have just been buildup for penetration
I'm going to rip my dick off fapping next episode. I'm going to ruin my manhood because Beatrix's death deserves it.
One of them had their TSF head blown away.
Meaning the person or body inside is somewhat fine.
That's the thing, I don't want that evil mentality directed at me. Tender and devoted to me while being an evil killer to the rest of the world just does something to both my heart and my dick.
Takeru will protect his smile.
Did I hear that right? Did Beatrix pronounce "KGB" as KAAGEEBEE?
that's not how you'd pronounce it in Russian or in English, is that how you'd pronounce it in German?
>it's March 21st
>still no sign of Extra release
So how the dicks did comrade Gregory pass the background checks needed to become the chief stasi in a country run by stasis where the stasis would notice if somebody appeared from nowhere or was one day murdered and replaced by a KGB lieutenant?
Takahashi will protect his smile for sure!
That one has a very thick Rusky accent, and Russian is old east Slavic, hell, it could be old novogordian, it's notably different than Shtokovian.
Still, you can understand eachother to a degree, but not like a Croatian/Serb/Slovenian could understand Pollandball.
I started around 5:16
>Beatrix: Oh really now? Picking up a pilot from the battlefield and then just like that she wishes to defect, what a dream-like development. Is that even possible, I wonder?
>Iris: If you doubt the lieutenant, show me the basis of your suspicion.
>Due to there being an order to things, I formally protest.
>Beatrix: Well then, I'll tell you.
>Theo: [Did she just look at me?]
>Beatrix:One, Lieutenant Waldheim is under the care of a pilot we once had the pleasure of having in our care in the past.
>Two, Lieutenant Waldheim's defection was unnaturally sudden.
>Three, there are reports that Lieutenant Waldheim displays improper political rhetoric.
>And finally there's the matter concerning the strange rapidity between her defection and admission into the squad. With just all this, wouldn't it be natural to suspect something?
>Theo: [She's being fed information.....but of course, there's informants in the base.]
>[It's not just Katia. They suspect me......No, they suspect the whole squad.]
>Iris: Your basis is weak.
>We have acted within the measures of law. There is nothing to feel guilty about.
>Iris: Concerning Leutnant Waldheim's rhetoric, considering that not even a day has passed since she defected it's only natural.
(TL note: Regarding this I would like to say that Katia defected on 1/13 t ~2:30, this event with the MfS takes place on 1/14 at ~1:30 after the Tu-95 incident)
>On that point, I will have her undergo political guidance to correct any mistakes.
>At present, rather wouldn't that be proof the she is not a spy.
>After all there is no spy that that would willingly draw attention from the Ministerium für Staatssicherheit
Now that I think about it Axemann went ahead and said some of these lines in the anime.
Skip skip skip anime skip skip skip
>Beatrix: Lieutenant Theodore Eberbach
>Beatrix: Let me give you some advice.
>If Katia Waldheim is found to be an enemy of the state, we'll be looking into what part you had to play in all this you know?
>We aren't nice enough people to forgive those who have committed crimes against the state twice.
>Beatrix: Fufufu, don't be so frightened.
>We are always looking for comrades. If you there's something you'd like to say, report it.
>Keep in mind that you commander has suvived till today doing just that.
>Theo:[Is she saying to become accomplices? Just like Irisdina....?]
>Beatrix: You want to know, don't you? What fate your family has met.
>Beatrix: If you were to cooperate, the information would be readily available as well.
>I'll be expecting you
Reading the LNs, and Beatrix is really evil, more so than even the anime:
I think I hate her now. I want to pull her entrails out, even the cute prequel version. She uses civvies as shields in her battle with Theo, knowing that he'll hesitate. She's pure fucking evil. There is no redemption, no nothing. No wonder Theo spits on her corpse and tells her he hopes she's burning in hell. She is literally worst than Axmann.
Her face when __________
Uh, I think the translation your using might be wrong:
>Theodor gives off a shelling for peeling pull pull 剝 the Beatrix machine from Annette machine. Beatrix performs shelling while to shield the apartment group, you try to take a distance from Theodore. Shelling of Theodor stops ── not afford to involve citizens.
Devoted to avoid giving up the shelling ── again to try to change the battlefield, but the bullet that began to shoot the MiG-27 Arigetoru to hit ── explosion flames behind the apartment.
>Theodor from Annette Beatrix machine pulled pulled lamella is already for the unleash the fire. Beatrice pounded apartment blocks to shield the seeking to distance themselves from the Theodore a. Stop shelling of Theodor ─ ─ to involve citizens can't afford.
Concentrate on avoiding the shelling ─ ─ struck the apartment behind a cannon was shot MiG-27 alligator and again change the battlefield, but ─ ─ erupted into flames to.
Maybe a Moonfag can come along and confirm who is shooting at apartment building with disregard for collateral.
They all deserve to be happy, but that ain't what the shows about. You're getting cute girls suffering and you're going to like it.
Beatrix is the one doing it. Because she doesn't give a fuck. She is a horrible person and quite literally deserving of the most heinous death imaginable. I'd say her crimes are so insurmountably evil that she retroactively deserves justice.
You see, after perusing the LN, I have to say that Beatrix never deserved happiness, never deserved Jurgen, but she did deserve Axmann. Axmann is like the great moral arbitrator of SM in a way. He gave Lise what she deserved, and ultimately gave Irisdina what she deserved for her sins.
Theo is already established as using civilians to shield himself in both the LNs and the anime, so it's kinda iffy.
However, Beatrix is also established as being extremely misanthropic and hating everyone in the DDR, so it would be in character for her to not care too much at this point whether or not she has good PR.
Beatrix does not hesitate to involve the general public in battle.
Like others said, Beatrix is 1) fucking nuts by this point and 2) hates almost everything and everybody about the DDR
Eh, I'll still take her route in Martyrs to see what's up. She's my favorite, but I'd be lying if I didn't say she's evil by the point of SM. But really, shouldn't Axmann be the one to blame? He's they guy who broke her.
So being the most unlikable character in Muv-Luv since Fagiri is canonical? Makes sense. And yeah, I disagree about Axmann being better than her, but I will say he's way more likable (not saying much, but it is impressive considering Beatrix's sex appeal). Surprises me that she has fans considering how 1-dimensionally evil she is. She has literally less positive character traits than Axmann (again, rather impressive considering Axmann does shit that is far worse).
Its all about presentation. It doesn't matter if Axmann or Beatrix is objectively worse they will have fans regardless but only depending on how they're portrayed, what is explicitly shown, and more importantly what is omitted.
I caught Gretel eating a used tissue off the floor this afternoon. It didn't have snot on it, either. I walk into the room, and she just gives me this look like "What are you gonna do about it" and I had to pick up the tissue and toss it in the trash. I guess that's just what I get for letting the house get messy.
Then when I let Gretel off her leash after walking her through the neighborhood, she ran into the neighbor's house and ate all the cat food. Gretel is such a little rascal!
Right now, Gretel is sitting on the floor next to my chair watching me eat some Indian food I got at Trader Joe's and begging me to share it with her. I'm not going to, though. I'll give her some kibbles 'n bits before I leave for work. I only give her a quarter cup of food twice a day, so when she gets it she's really excited for it. She just sticks her head right in the bowl and sucks it all down. I had to start putting water on it because she hardly even chews. Can't have my little Gretel getting fat now, can I?
Are the BETA going to show up in the last episode to wreck East Germany's shit while they fight among themselves, or is the frontline fortress actually going to asspull their way to victory with no TSFs?
Is there any solid, legitimate reason to support Iris/the rebellion over Beatrix's Stasi?
If I was tasked with joining a faction, I'd probably lean towards Beato because of her strength and charisma.
>gets called out by Beatrix
>instead of denying it and calling it fabricated evidence, he admits it and goes on to explain his entire plan to doom East Germany right in front of his super-patriotic East German guards who are armed with guns
What did he think was going to happen?
>fight the good fight vs beaters
That's exactly what I'd want. She seem like she can actually keep the country safer than the rebels. Maybe East Germany would have lasted longer with her in control.
Joining the Stasi seems to be the more pragmatic decision if you want to hold the line against the BETA, I'd also join for the Beato though. Besides it's not like the rebels are any better than the Stasi.
I have finally counted what pic related can bring to the field. To understand how I got these numbers the front will consist of 3 Combined Arms Armies and 2 Tank Armies.
Each Combined Arms Army consist of 3 Motorised Rifle Divisons and 1 Tank Divison while each Tank Army has 4 Tank Divisons and 1 Motorised Rifle Divison.
And here are the numbers from my rough estimate and counting
92 FROG/SSM Tel, FROG-7/7B or SS-21/SCARAB
72 152-mm Field Gun 2A36 or 203-mm SP Gun 2S7
1166 152-mm SP Howitzer, 2S3
240 152-mm Field gun 2A35 or 152-mm SP GUN 2S5 or 130-mm Field Gun M-46
240 152-mm Gun-Howitzer D-20 or ML-20 or M1987
1260 122-mm SP Howitzer, 2S1
518 122-mm Howitzer, D-30
72 220-mm Rocket Launcher (16-Round) BM-22
414 122-mm Rocket launcher, BM-21 (40-Round)
12 122-mm Rocket Launcher (12-Round) BM-21V
24 203-mm SP Gun, 2S7 or 203-mm Howitzer m1931 (B-4m)
24 240-mm SP Mortar, 2s4 or 240-mm Mortar M-240
1482 120-mm Mortar. M1943/M-120 or 82-mm Automatic Mortar, 2B9
324 100-mm Antitank Gun T-12/MT-12
368 SPAA Gun, ZSU-23-4 or 2S6
42 23-mm AA Gun, ZU-23
681 ATGM Launcher Vehicle (BRDM-2) AT-3/5
295 ATGM Manpack Console, AT-3/4
594 ATGM Manpack Launcher, AT-7
147 73-mm Recoilless Gun. SPG-9
12261 ATGL, RPG-7V
820 ATGL, RPG-16D
1152 30-mm Automatic Greande Launcher, AGS-17
8634 5.45-mm LMG, RPK-74
2484 7.62-mm GPMG, PKM
And then there are hordes of other vehicles and equipment.
5 Attack helicopter Regiments (1 in each CAA OR TD)
200 Attack helicopter, Mi-24/HIND D/E/F
100 Medium Helicopter, Mi-8T/HIP C/E or Mi-17/HIP H
Then you can throw in over 700 Tactical Surface Fighters. More then 350 attack helicopters (including the attack helicopter regiments) and 300 other aircrafts/TSF and helicopters.
Only Suzy is like that.
By the way, I hate Suzy.
A totalitarian hellhole is what's needed to stop the BETA.
>Besides it's not like the rebels are any better than the Stasi.
This, especially that cunt wit the scar on her face. Lise was right about them. If only onii-chan listened to her.
Is there going to be an epilogue mentioning Germany's eventual fall. I really want them to drive home how the 666th and their little rebellion probably only sped up the destruction of their homeland by the BETA.
There is nothing else.
Let's see what director-kun want's to do. He might turn it into a major victory and the only reason DDR fell is because Stasi remnants decided to fuck everythin up and go full VC.
>tfw I'm doing the same thing
Also is it just me or does Yuuhi sound really weird.
Look at this stern, stoic, bad-ass motherfucker. I wonder what he was thinking of the whole time the old dude was giving his generic speech.
>You will never see the main cast in a TV anime
Someone send me to a different parallel universe. This is truly the darkest timeline.
>watching Total Shitclipse
You might as well bash your head on a wall for 24 episodes instead. Just play the goddamn Muv-Luv VN.
Yea me too, except I'm reading the VN.
It has no Katia so I'm bored out of my mind
Beato is beautiful.
10/10, would serve and die for.
>The MiG-23 was the Soviet Air Force's "Top Gun"-equivalent aggressor aircraft from the late 1970s to the late 1980s. It proved a difficult opponent for early MiG-29 variants flown by inexperienced pilots. Exercises showed when well-flown, a MiG-23MLD could achieve favorable kill ratios against the MiG-29 in mock combat by using hit-and-run tactics and not engaging the MiG-29s in dogfights. Usually the aggressor MiG-23MLDs had a shark mouth painted on the nose just aft of the radome, and many were piloted by Soviet-Afghan War veterans. In the late 1980s, these aggressor MiG-23s were replaced by MiG-29s, also featuring shark mouths.
That is pretty fucking cool that someone on the Muv Luv team is a plane nut. Why I posted this pasta is because it shows that a skilled pilot in a MiG-23 could trump a MiG-29 therefore it could trump a MiG-27 which means Theo winning over Beato-san isn't far fetched.
Prepare to be blue balled and disappointed. Also enjoy 1/3 of the season being filler.
Kouki is a gigantic planefag. Why do you think he made planes the be-all end-all of warfare instead of just a very helpful aid, with a mecha twist?
Hell, originally the BETA were supposed to fly.
Half the time. Such an odd and irritating character.
I love Katia and just was hoping I would find a girl like her in another mech series that is over so I can binge watch it and get good waifu feels
>Kouki is a gigantic planefag.
Never knew lads as SM is my first go at Muv Luv.
It is a shame that TE got 24 episodes and they blew on it bullshit beach episodes.
Kei is still my favorite ML girl after all this time.
I think I have a thing for close-combat specialists, because Anett is my favorite Schwarzesmarken.
Believe it or not, but the beach arc is pretty important. They actually cut out a pretty important plotpoint that the soviets were stalking them there. Yes, they downplayed the plot in favor of harem antics.
The show's quality and animation in TE picks up hugely once the 2nd director came in for the second half of TE though and there was no budget change.
A good director can make a huge difference. Also in the LNs and both manga versions of TE, they cut out the assassination attempt on Yui being foreshadowed when the UN rescue team was searching for them during the beach thing.
But did they really need two episodes to do it?
How would you know if you didn't watch TE in the first place and SM is your first go with a Muv-Luv series?
>The show's quality and animation in TE picks up hugely once the 2nd director came in for the second half of TE though and there was no budget change.
W-what. I never knew that.
Why the fuck would they change directors half way through?
I watched SM up to episode six first, got bored waiting for the next episode, and watched TE in five days before the next episode of SM.
You have yet to explain the point of that greentext.
You know that's not the first time in any series that directors have been changed on a series right? And the first director was retained as the head producer even after he got dropped as the director.
>Why the fuck would they change directors half way through?
Because he was spending too much time and focus on minor shit like creating a CGI model for the Fubuki and Yuuya's training episode with it when in the novels it was barely a paragraph long thing.
Second director was better at action and pushing the story, the first director was obsessed with making the anime a 1:1 parallel with the novels that it was actually bogging down the show's budget and making it look QUALITY in the first place.
Here is your (you).
Still doesn't change the fact that the TE anime is a polished turd.
No they didn't. Yushizumi voiced her character in the TE anime as well.
I had no clue about any of this shit anon.
Thanks for filling me in.
I disagree with your disagree.
That's kind of funny because for all the shit TE gets with its QUALITY and early pacing, at least Nips weren't shitting on it for looking like an out-dated show like they still are with SM when it comes to its visuals.
>my subjective opinion triumphs yours
Well my subjective opinion is that Pham > Stella.
Does Beato-san like choking? Or is she vanilla?
Because SM was always shit, so there wasn't much to ruin. Oh wait, this time its true.
>Pham over Stella
Disgusting but that's your choice I guess.
Stay booty blasted that TE is a shit show and way worse than SM.
>Your taste is absolute shit objectively.
Now we are memeing. Try harder shitposter.
Pretty much the opposite despite your bullshit dude: the early episodes of TE and the latter half were praised if you were actually in the 2012 threads when it was airing. Japs were pretty harsh on Schwarzesmarken from the onset though.
>Stay booty blasted
Rebuking a shitpost doesn't make me ass-pained, anon.
>TE is a shit show
>way worse than SM
>Now we are meming.
Only a shitposter would talk like this in the first place.
>GOING GOING HIKARE E
Not even the same anon but that OP was catchy as fuck, what's the problem?
>it's not going to be a good episode
I liked TE too and the only episodes that felt bad or sub-par was the handling of the beach arc because they removed vital shit like the other anon mentioned about the foreshadowing of the UN soldier who was actually a Soviet double agent meant to kill Yui and the early handful where Yuuya is having his training arc before Russia.
That's a better OP then Fripside desu senpai.
You have to be from Animesuki or one of those retards from the ML wikia if you are this new and don't recognize that name.
You are a massive cock-sucking liar. Paul shitposted on both /a/ and /m/ constantly when TE aired bitching about the show having a male lead character and was pure unadultered faggotry incarnate.
