For your entertainment readers! Shoko will sing and dance for you!
Hooray time for some crazy fun with Kakumeiki Valvrave on Metanorn, so after four episodes are you still enjoying this series so far? I know personally I always look forward to something crazy every week, but anyway it is time to start the review.
Time for another juicy serving of Valvrave! This time around, we have shifting alliances and unexpected developments. There’s plenty to discuss, so let’s get on with the show.
Evil politicians in SPACEEEEE!
Mr. Figaro-“Hey boys and girls! Time for a game of dodge the raining bullets.”
Last week I asked who people thought were evil and with over 40% of the votes I can see most of us think that the Dorssia will be revealed as the true evil masterminds in the overall plot of Valvrave, but of course with this episode I still feel that the Arus faction are up to something sneaky especially with the reveal at the start of this episode with the politicians voting to steal the Valvrave for mass production along with kidnapping and experimenting on Haruto since apparently he is the ONLY person allowed to pilot the giant badass robot. I have to say that scene with the random military guy melting as he tried to pilot the robot was so damn disturbing, but hey at least the Valvrave has a built in security system unlike a few Gundams of the past unless you are a super computer programmer like Kira Jesus Yamato? That dude can reprogram the OS of any giant robot. Did anyone else think Mr. Figaro was evil the moment he was introduced last week? For some reason I instantly thought that he was evil and what about the mysterious Akira Renbokouji? What is her deal in the whole story because she gives off the vibe of someone who is in hiding from SOMETHING I guess she would be somewhat similar to Frau of Robotic;Notes? I wonder if she is the key to unlocking more power for the Valvrave or is she was the daughter of some programmer who worked on the Valvrave? I know she is the sister of Satomi Renbokoji after reading her profile.
Cheesy fun with Vavlrave
And boy did he ever laugh~
Shoko or L-elf ?
Shoko-“Please stop shipping Saki with Haruto before have to stab someone.”
Who do you like more this week? Shoko who stepped up to calm her fellow classmates and rally them up to fight against the Arus or was L-elf more interesting to watch with his predictions and surprise contract that he pushed on Haruto? For me I like that Shoko over L-elf this time even though I kind of wanted her to stay dead after the first episode, but whatever I think she is important to the story even though I can only see her as a possible romantic partner for Haruto? Besides that we did learn that she is the daughter of the Jior faction, after hearing that my mind was like oh great you know what that means right? We will have some tragic story with him dying and his daughter taking over as the future leader just like Cagalli of Gundam SEED or do you think she is just being used for Haruto shipping wars? I know most people like pairing of Saki and Haruto and I bet there are shippers that support L-elf and Haruto getting together right Anaaga? Then again, I don’t think you should look to Valvrave for romance I mean that is like watching Railgun S and expecting Touma and Misaka to kiss because that is never going to happen.
Extra fun with Valvrave
Beware of those evil space tacos!!
I guess we have to wait for the Blurays for that special fanservice.
Soldier-“Good thing I brought some bbq sauce.”
The winner gets a giant cookie.
So this week had some oddball moments like the idea of taking the Valvrave as a hostage, turning the school into an independent nation and singing songs to distract the Arus soldiers? I swear this series does whatever the hell it wants and doesn’t even care which is probably why I love it so much. Other than those crazy moments there wasn’t a whole lot to comment on besides the reveal at the start with Arus secretly plotting to steal the Valvrave for mass production and of course their failed attempt to kidnap Haruto? I keep waiting for the reveal of the other Valvraves in the ending or are they just possible transformations? I guess this is another case of WE NEED MORE EPISODES huh? Well I hope we get more information next time.
Best quote from this episode “Call me Moses, I’m gonna split the sea of students before your eyes.”
I have to say that I really enjoy Valvrave’s ability to pull off the most ridiculous things ever. Shouko being the daughter of Jior’s president aside, I can’t believe the students not only established their own sovereign nation, but also radically dislocated their module from the rest of the Dyson sphere. Where are they going to run? Are they just going to float around in space? They’d have to remain reasonably close to the artificial star if they do that, or they’ll run out of energy pretty fast. Or perhaps they’re going to perform a self-colony drop on Earth? Now that would be a sight to see.
L-elf-“I saw this in an anime series called Smile Precure does it mean I am super moe now?”
Glee meets Valvrave?
