Going in dry

Fans of everything Muv-Luv rejoice, as another entry into the franchise, Haruko Maniax, has just been fan translated to English by Alternative Projects.

After the successful partial translation of Muv-Luv Alternative Chronicles 02 back in April of this year, the Muv-Luv focused fan translation group Alternative Projects, is back with another game release. This time around Alternative Projects has graced us with a Muv-Luv Haruko Maniax fandisc, featuring a story based in the Muv-Luv Extra universe about Haruko’s younger brother Taichi, three humorous Muv-Luv Radio Mini-Drama ADV side-stories based on Muv-Luv Alternative, and finally the sequel to the TSF tactical-strategy minigame Faraway Dawn 2.

That is certainly a lot of content to process for fans of everything Muv-Luv. To make all of this information a bit easier to digest, we present to you a short main story synopsis (taken from the title’s VNDB page) along with a few sample screenshots, so you know what you are getting into.

The main story is about Haruko’s brother Taichi, who spots a suspicious girl stalking his big sister and gets to know from her that Haruko might be going out with her brother. Taichi being a “siscon” and Saki being a “brocon”, they join forces to ascertain whether their older siblings are really dating or not.

The translation patch, together with the installation instructions, can be acquired on Alternative Projects Haruko Maniax blogpost.

Alternative Projects has even more announcements for Muv-Luv fans. The Haruko Maniax translation project lead and main translator has hinted Atlernative Projects and other translation teams are working on a whopping number of ten Muv-Luv related projects.

Today marks my first release since joining Alternative Projects only a few short months ago, and there will be plenty more to follow in the coming months – both from myself, and from our other translation teams as well. With more thanTEN unique fan translation projects in the pipeline, as well as new VNs and the KickStarter incoming, âge fans will have a lot to look forward to in future updates from Alternative Projects. From myself, keep an eye out for a small update on Kimi ga Nozomu Eien coming very soon. Please look forward to it.

For now, feel free to sink your teeth into Haruko Maniax. Hopefully it can stave off those Muv-Luv hunger pangs and help to tide you over until the main course arrives.

I really, really hope you find something to enjoy.
