Nononononono. I know where that line of thinking ends.
Don't worry. The Sunrider series has already had its controversial ending that required a free extended cut update. The end of the series will skip that and go straight to the awesome party filled with inside jokes and the characters all getting drunk.
As long as Love In Space doesn't release a crappy spinoff in which a bunch of morons move to another galaxy to fight boring rock people, it's all good.
I'm pretty sure the original Sunrider is gone for good.
But don't worry. In the next game, Kayto will be recruited by a Ceran supremacist terrorist organization led by a chain-smoking Prototype, which will bring Chigara back to life and present them with the Sunrider SR-2.
After that, they'll go find Sola, who's been busy sniping the criminal population of Ongess while operating as the masked vigilante known as Seraphim.
Though I'll probably chicken out and do it on Waifu mode because dating/management sims like this confuse the hell out of me.
Honestly, while I enjoyed the VN side, I thought that Academy's "gameplay" was pretty awful. It's a confusing mess that relies far too much on hidden random number generators, one that gets tedious very quickly. It was a pretty large disappointment, considering the main series' gameplay is so good. I played it on the Easy setting, but subsequent runs will definitely be on Waifu Mode to minimize frustration and speed up the downtime between story segments.
That said, I think you'll enjoy the Sola route. Despite appearing in a standalone game with a wacky, parody-filled high school setting, Academy Sola somehow manages to be just as fantastic a character as her mainline counterpart.
Who's to say that warp technology of some sort isn't involved with the Seraphim's rifle? It could be analogous to a one-way Mass Relay from Mass Effect. It's overkill, sure, but this is Ryuvian tech we're talking about.
Regardless, you're looking too much into it. Sunrider isn't hard sci-fi, but it's not trying to be. I mean, the scene in question is about the captain in charge of a harem of anime waifus recruiting a time-traveling space princess who has nanomachines in her blood that make her eye glow and let her activate doomsday weapons. Nothing about it is remotely plausible, but it still makes for a great story.
I'm fairly sure I've seen all of the Gundam media that has an English dub, save for Iron-Blooded Orphans (waiting on the second season's dub). I've also watched a few episodes of Turn A Gundam, but I didn't get very far.
In addition, I've seen Aldnoah Zero, Code Geass, and Full Metal Panic.
A little under a year ago, I became curious about the medium and grabbed a few on Steam, some free and some cheap. I still haven't gone through any of them besides the Sunrider games, so it's premature to say that I'm "into" VNs, as much as I love this series. Heck, unless you count the [Re]turn DLC as its own thing, I've yet to go through a single "pure" visual novel with no gameplay.
And thus the last remnants of the Empire of the Rising Tsun have fallen, crushed under the combined might of the Alliance, Conglomerate, and Ryuvian Empire. And it was the forces of none other than Sola di Ryuvia, the legendary Sharr of old, that struck the final blow!
Behold, the face of the great and terrible conqueror! Tremble in fear before her mighty wrath and ruthless gaze!
But surely failing to score with the chosen Waifu is faaaaaaaar worse than failing to stop an ancient time-travelling warrior lord with an armada of glistening lost-tech warships and an all consuming desire to conquer the galaxy, right?
But the Chosen Waifu IS an ancient time-traveling warrior lord with an armada of glistening lost-tech warships and an all-consuming desire to conquer the galaxy.
The High Council of the Solan Territories hereby formally asks Queen Asaga to restrain her supporters operating within our borders, lest they cause further damage through their carelessness. We realize that tensions are high among some as a result of our rapid growth and expansion, but this increase in prosperity is meant to be a boon for the entire Ryuvian Empire. If damage to our resources continues as a result of failure to comply with this request, we will be forced to consider a more severe response.
