Summary:

The team heads to Milkovsky in the USSR to test out the new Radiation Canon. Yuuya will be testing out the new canon in live combat in his first battle against the BETAs. Yui shows Yuuya the new canon shows some concern for him since it’ll be his first time in actual combat; though he tells her he’ll show her that he’ll be able to take care of himself and the new weapon. The USSR soldiers seem to have some grudge against test pilots and hassle Inia and Cryska until Yuuya comes along and defends them. The next day the mission briefing starts and the commander of the USSR ZHAR platoon pilots already has no expectations of the test pilots and tells them not to get in the way of her men.

Opinions:

Man, those USSR pilots really got on my nerves; though I’m unsure if it’s because they’re essentially kids or how they were messing with Inia and Cryska. I mean, the stuff they mention like hanging previous test pilots on the fence after having their way with them is super harsh considering these people are essentially on the same team as you. You can really hear the jealousy they have for test pilots because they feel it’s a safer job. But is that really the case? I mean with prototypes, the odds of accidents occurring and being injured or killed still exists doesn’t it? Arguably a solider’s job is tougher, but I feel that testers put up with enough risk for them to deserve some degree of respect. Am I alone in this opinion? Well other than that, this episode marks Yui coming out of her tsundere shell and actually voicing her concern about Yuuya’s welfare to his face. It looks like their relationship is steadily getting closer!

So this episode looks to conclude Yuuya’s “training” as it seems he has better control “if not mastered” his TSF. But for me the big draw was seeing Tarisa as a catgirl maid! If I’m not mistaken this is the first instance of “fan service” in the series thus far? I gotta say, I had different expectations going into this series since I was familiar with Muv-luv but not too familiar with the Muv-luv Alternative franchise. It’s completely different since Muv-luv is a highschool romcom. But the story for Total Eclipse and the characters really won me over and it’s becoming even better than I thought it would be! Can’t wait for the next episode!
