Muv-Luv Alternative season 2 premieres October 5

Muv-Luv Alternative

The upcoming second season of Muv-Luv Alternative will premiere on October 5 as part of the Fall 2022 anime season. Originally announced for a Fall release earlier this year, we’re finally given a firm release date for the upcoming sci-fi show.

I’m going to be honest, I feel like I’ve written a dozen articles about Muv-Luv Alternative and I still get confused about the plot. So you can read the synopsis of the series from our previous coverage below.

“Muv-Luv and its sequels follows Takeru Shirogane, a hapless hentai protagonist who has to choose between his childhood friend Sumika Kagami, and a strange heiress named Meiya Mitsurugi who claims to love him.

Meanwhile he tries to recall a memory of long ago, when he made a childhood promise to marry someone but cannot recall exactly who it was.

In Muv-Luv Unlimited, Takeru suddenly wakes up in an alternate reality where aliens called BETAs (“Beings of Extra Terrestrial origin which are Adversary of the human race”) have wiped out nearly two-thirds of humanity. He learns that this reality’s version of him is dead, and Sumika is nowhere to be found.

In Muv-Luv Alternative, Takeru again wakes up to strange circumstances. He is still in the reality of Muv-Luv Unlimited, but this time in the past. Using his foreknowledge he tries to change the future for the betterment of humanity. This means activating a mysterious event called the Unlimited IV”
