Life sure is tough in space school.
Time for your weekly dose of epic giant robots with more Valvrave on Metanorn and last time we left off with some strange reveal that Shouko was the daughter of the Jior faction president? I really wonder how they plan on exploring that later on, but who could forget the master plan to have Haruto’s school declared as an independent nation that is holding the super cool mecha as a hostage? I swear things get extra crazy with each passing episode…
School life in spaceeeee!
Easiest way to do laundry and take a shower at the same time!
I noticed after the previous episode just about everyone I know on Twitter were quick to compare the preview for this episode with Guilty Crown based on the arc where Ouma shu and his “friends” turned their school into an independent nation, but we all know how that went from happy good time vibes all the way to total chaos because of Shu turning into some evil dictator! That said I wonder will the same thing happen with Valvrave? Personally I don’t think Haruto will turn out to be as messed up as Shu, but I suppose if he was given the right push from someone like L-elf maybe it COULD go that way? Hopefully things do not go down that path because I kind of want something NEW and not some repeat of the events of Guilty Crown’s failed school-war-arc and while I am on the subject of school based stuffs this week we also got a blend of Love Live x Tari Tari x Gundam SEED with all the singing and dancing found in this episode that left most of us shouting WHAT IS GOING ON and sure most of us including myself were quick to write off those moments as lol-space-glee; however I found it to be quite hilarious to watch, but other than those off the wall moments we had some interesting character interaction between the students like the nerdy kid and the school bully and of course we can’t forget that random catfight between Saki and Takahi? I guess when your school basically becomes your house you eventually learn to get along with EVERYONE, oh and on a random side note I totally ship the two teachers because they kind of look and act like a couple to me!
Valvraves all over the place!
This is basically Fosh’s room at the Metanorn headquarters.
A while back I was set on the idea of the Valvrave “transforming” or “powering up” with the red machine basically change colors while taking on a brand new mode for each battle, but sadly my theory did not work out as planned because the last few minutes of this episode revealed that there are in face several other Valvrave machines hidden under the school and guess who discovered it first?! You guessed it none other than L-elf and I assume that he will try to steal one of them and take it back to his team, but yeah I know they still consider him to be a traitor or will he surprise us and stick around with the independent school nation? Also I wonder how the school plans on picking the next round of pilots after they find out the truth about the extra robots, because I can see some type of voting drama in the future and what about that scene with Haruto and Saki kissing?! Whoa I guess Saki is taking charge of her relationship status with Haruto. Anyway back to the extra robots I really hope each machine gives you a different “curse” because I really do not want a bunch of freaking body swapping space vampires walking around.
Extra fun with Valvrave
HELL YA! I know I always wanted to do that.
Saki for the freaking win!
So I learned a few things this week such as going to school in space is filled with singing, dancing and making friends, but how long will things stay that happy go lucky for the students because eventually you will have some students that will quit being nice and decide to rebel against Haruto and the student council or will that even happen since Haruto has the awesome power of the Valvrave? If anything I can see the students being super nice to him instead of going up against him. So was anyone else shocked when Saki kissed Haruto? Personally I was not all that shocked because I think it is safe to say she has a thing for him, but is she just being nice to him for protecting her life and the school? I can’t help but look back on a similar thing Sunrise did with Flay falling in “love” with Kira from good old Gundam SEED or do you think Saki generally LIKES our main hero? I suppose they did hint at that pairing early on after we all assumed that Shoko died in the first episode.
L-elf is going to troll you so hard next week Haruto.
How long can Saki and Haruto keep their secret?!
