Visual Novel: Muv-Luv Extra

Muv-Luv Extra is the first of the trilogy encompassing the Muv-Luv visual novels. It tells the story of an average high school student named Shirogane Takeru and his childhood friend Sumika. At the very beginning of the story, Takeru wakes up to find a ridiculously wealthy girl named Meiya sitting next to him in bed, at which point Sumika walks in to wake him up like always. She doesn't take it well. The love triangle between these two then proceeds forward and completing both is required to unlock Muv-Luv Unlimited, though there are three other heroine routes and a bad end focusing on the teacher character.

'"Extra'' is largely used as setup for the next two parts of the story and thus contains a great deal of foreshadowing. To help set up those two stories, we are introduced to Takeru, the girls he knows, Makoto and Takeru's two teachers, Yuuko and Marimo. Since the story is written primarily to establish Takeru as your standard dense harem protagonist, it wildly embraces every harem cliche it can find so as to contrast more with the latter portions of the story. Hidden beneath the childhood friends and wacky hijinks are a surprising amount of little details that do not become relevant until far later in the story as a whole.

See Muv-Luv for the other works in the series. The story is directly continued with Muv-Luv Unlimited.
