"A destiny tossed about, in an insane world---
A flame of life blazing forth, in a dying world---
And now, one more future that is spun---

This is the alternative ending unable to be told before:
A very great, a very tiny, a very precious...
Tale of love and courage."

Muv-Luv Alternative continues the story of Shirogane Takeru after the events of the original Muv-Luv. This is a tale of a love so deep it breaks all barriers; about courage in the face of adversity and overcoming hardships. Takeru encounters insurmountable odds while his entire world is turned upside down around him.
