Let's see...It is the first Muv Luv Fanfic out there and probably the best. Maybe Takeru goes into Gary Stu territory, but it was justified since what happened to him while the world and BETA didn't make it easy to him either. And who doesn't love the comedy in the middle of crapsack world? Like the almost the whole Yokohama Base is the Shipper on the Deck for Takeru/Marimo after he rescued her during the XM 3
testing incident and the senior members of Valkyrie Squadron is all for Takeru/Michiru after he make the whole army wholeheartedly agreeing to support him to rescue Michiru who was ready to make a heroic sacrifice during the Sadogashima Campaign. And he did it by just making a speech to Yuuko on the open channel. Double as the Crowning Moment of Awesome for Takeru and the Valkyries. Slowly, Takeru builds his harem without noticing. So far that I can predicted as had been foreshadowed members of his harem are: Meiya, Yuuhi (quite blatant as Ikaruga found it the hard way), Michiru, Haruko, Marimo, Sumika, Chizuru, Kasumi, Mikoto, Miki, Mitsuki, Haruka, Akane, Munakata, Touko, Tsukuyomi (Hinted), and probably Yuuko too. The Author already foreshadowed that Takeru will end up Sumika, but we'll just have to wait for that. Like the title said, it is really worth a damn to read!
