Shoko x L-ELF for new OTP? Oh wait nevermind he has Haruto.
Well we have finally reached the ninth episode which means Valvrave is almost over, but anyway I remember some of us guessed that the title of this episode hinted towards Raizou or possibly Kyuuma becoming one of the newest Valvrave pilots because both of them want revenge for their dead friends.
Revenge in space!
Blue Valvrave has a awesome cape~
Yellow Valvrave and his many arms yo!
I guess we can put one of the mysteries behind us this week because not only did Kyuuma become a pilot, but Raizou also became a badass Valvrave pilot in the same episode; however it was thanks to the wise words of L-Elf that gave Kyuuma time to think about his important choice along with Raizou later on after they exchanged fists! That said, they did mention that Raizou kept on breaking into the mecha hangar to try and steal one of the giant robots. After learning that fact I felt the impact of the bully dude becoming a pilot was lame compared to someone like Kyuuma’s story, but to be fair I feel that the creators of Valvrave are playing up Aina’s death which of course gives him a special purpose to protect his friends from danger with the help of the Valvrave. Speaking of protecting I loved watching how the blue Valvrave used that massive cape as a shield to reflect lasers? After seeing that moment it made me think of some characters with similar “powers” found in Heartcatch PreCure and Doki Doki PreCure because both series have girls with awesome fighting skills, but they spend most of their time using their shield ability to protect their friends instead of fighting off the enemy which makes me think that the blue Valvrave will spend a lot of time doing the same thing in the large space battles; however that is not a bad role to have because every five man team needs a beefy tank class to act as the giant meat shield while the others fight.
Mysteries in space!
Never trust teachers in space…
Since we cleared out one of the larger mysteries of Valvrave this week, we might as well talk about the last few minutes featuring L-ELF finding Mr. Takumi Kibukawa looking at the experimental Valvrave machines. So who is this mysterious teacher anyway? For starters he is a former soldier of the JIOR army with a master rank and was involved in researching the mysterious Valvrave machines. I wonder if that means Rion Nanami is also a former JIOR soldier like Takumi, but I would put her as a medical officer for now or is she just acting like a ditsy teacher the whole time? Can you imagine if she was some badass soldier back in the day? Honestly that would not surprise me if that was true. So what happens now that his cover has been blown? I assume that Takumi will share all his research notes to L-ELF which could reveal some massive secret behind the Valvrave project and what about Cain’s plot from the last episode? I wonder if he worked with Takumi in the past.
Extra Valvrave fun
For a dead character she has more twitter friends than me.
No one likes you bro.
Kyuuma finds a new girlfriend! Sorry Aina.
Hooray! More giant robots have joined Haruto and Saki to defend the floating space school! I was not expecting to see Raizou take the yellow Valvrave so fast! So which machine did you like the most this week blue or yellow? I am starting to think the creators of this series are watching Majestic Prince because each mecha in that series has a certain role like long ranged, data collecting, tank and fighting types just like your typical class choices found in most MMORPG. Personally I liked the yellow Valvrave because it has all those freaking arms? Did anyone else laugh when that random chick corrected her commander on the number of arms the yellow Valvrave had? I couldn’t stop laughing for some odd reason I found that to be hilarious. Besides all of that I have to ask! Who will get the purple Valvrave? I know most think it should go to Saki, but I don’t think she is cut out for that kind of role because I continue to see her as the default cheerleader. I guess it could go to Akira, Marie or Takahi right? Then again just because it is purple doesn’t really mean it belongs to a female character, for all we know L-ELF could have plans to take the final Valvrave for himself right? I also wonder the test tube machines can be of use later on.
I hope L-ELF loves the color purple!
Who will pilot the purple Valvrave?
