Alternative original, definitely one of JAM Project's finest as well.

Hmm, in terms of music, I prefer Unlimited Original (I'm biased towards softer music though).

In terms of graphics, the PS3 version is so pretty.

PS3 all the way, but Alternative Original is hearth touching.

Unlimited Original, because it had so many brilliant hidden spoilers in it (for example, you can see the shadow of the XG-70 near the end) that prove they really did have things planned out from the beginning. They changed the shape of the Takemikazuchi's "face" a bit though.

That, and I love "Muvluv" the song.

The original Unlimited opening is my favorite. I love the visual of the ruined city against the sunset and it seems Obari influenced at a few parts like the character introductions and the very end. Also I just love Muvluv, it's my favorite opening song.

Wow this is hard... 2 of my favorite are Alternative original and Alternative PS3.

Alt original is great that it set tone and feel of fighting in desperate war with everything to lose, it's almost a military song in my opinion and as a whole a real masterpiece.

Meanwhile, Alt PS3 start slower, but the feeling was built up until it peak at the middle part and everything has been absolutely awesome since.

 

But if I have to choose one, it has to be the original... I play first on PC after all.

MLA original without question. ~1 month since I finished MLA and I still listen to it at least once a day.

Endoh all the way. Alternative original is best.

Though, I will say Granrodeo's Alternative OP has been growing on me a bit...

PC MLA, no doubt about it.

The others have their good points, but none of them give me the same torrent of emotion.

Alternative Original without doubts, although it's a shame it has some spoilers, but who cares.

Looking at my vocal collection, there are some options missing there:

  • Divergence (Extra) PC all age
  • Shine -sion- (unlimited) PC all age
  • Name ~kimi no na wa~ (alternative) PC all age
  • First Pain (Extra) 360

At least that's how they are listed in the disc.

For some reason, I suddenly feel like this should be expanded to include the entirety of the ML OST. Mainly because I feel it'd be slightly superfluous to put up a new topic to discuss the music in general when we aready have the basis here..

On the song, MLA original is the best to me. Not only that, probably one of the best songs of JAM Project too (which looking at their extremely large number of works, is not a faint praise).

On the Opening itself though, the Alternative PS3 one has a slight edge. Extremely good combination of song and animations. The Unlimited original OP is also very good, but I've never been a fan of "Muvluv" the song.

I think "Shine" is read as "Shion" ("The Sound of Purple"). :)

Going by the song, I'm going with -sion-, because of Masami Okui, and  (massive spoilers for Alternative):

Spoiler

it's Meiya's image song. Those lyrics ;_;
"Even if an unavoidable destiny were waiting tomorrow - like that star shining sadly, I will live nobly to protect the man I love, even if my body scatters into the sky."

Asu e no Houkou and metamorphose are tied and very close seconds for me song-wise.

Opening videowise, I'm going with metamorphose and the Xbox-360 video, followed closely by the Alternative Chronicles OP (Once&Forever by Granrodeo)

Can't beat that Alternative original, still sends shivers down my spine and a tear in my eye every time I listen to it.

Original PC Alternative for the song, the feels, and the salutes.

But the Xbox one also has some pretty cool imagery, now that I look at it:
-Sumika trapped in a bird cage
-Valkyrie badges with everyone's faces, as if to say "we're all a unit, but each individual is important as well."
-Dead eyes Sumika, scary angry Sumika, crying Sumika, then a combination of the three.
-Santa rabbit turning into wood followed by shot of Kasumi

Pretty well done I think.

Definitely Asu e no Houkou! I actually got people into the Muv-Luv Series by having them listen to just the song!.....After explaining to them that it's not from Super Robot Wars despite what AMVs have you to believe :D

As far as I love the Alternative PC opening, I have to say that's the Extra PC opening I always associated with the entire series, so I guess that's my favourite. After all, it's the first thing you hear when starting the ride.

Does this count?

I've been waiting for someone to bring this up.  Considering he's part of Jam Project, sure why not.
