Kakumeiki Valvrave – 23

valvrave (7)

L-elf is back to surprise us all!

It appears that the voters tied last time with Haruto and L-elf having a bromance and a romance?! I wish them luck, but with only two episodes left what is going to happen next? I really hope we get a shocking ending or a possible hint of a season two? Anyway let us find out what happens today.


L-elf is one bad ass dude

L-elf-“Does anyone want to see a super cool magic trick?”

Rest in peace Thunder! You will be missed.

So last week L-elf was still suffering from a bad case of depression which pushed him to his limit and at one point he did not care if he died, but thankfully Haruto was around to give him some motivation and wow I can’t believe that I just said that Haruto was useful! That said this episode was practically an L-elf themed one with him returning to his former Dorssian soldier days with his familiar team! Well most of them anyway, but the other half was the whole reveal that Haruto slowly losing his memories of Shoko back when they where going to school together, but overall I have to say L-elf stole the episode with his crazy plan to expose the Magus live on TV with the help of Akira’s super computer hacking skills and of course she wouldn’t have survived without the heroic sacrifice from Raizou who risked his life to protect his new friends, but after Kyuuma died last time I figured it was only a matter of time before Raizou was picked off next. I swear at the rate Sunrise is killing off characters we are seriously running out of Valvrave pilots! So does that mean Akira might also kick the bucket next time? I hope not because in the end I just want someone besides Saki to survive, then again I suppose we can not really ignore those “possible” future scenes because they have hinted at Saki and a handful of other supporting characters surviving this mess. So does anyone else really hate Q-vier right about now? I have my fingers crossed for L-elf to put a bullet in his skull head before the series ends! Before I wrap this up what is the deal with the AI characters? When are we going to learn what they really are? I mean Cain did kind of hint that they are artificial or are they? Either way I just want to know what their true purpose is besides stirring up drama like Pino often does.

Extra Valvrave fun

Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    Everything cries out for another season. Yes, the truth of the world has been revealed (damn, have I gotten sick of that tagline!), but defeating the Magus and establishing the empire in the time left just doesn’t seem possible.

    I vote for Haruto being the next Valvrave pilot to die. Not only because I can’t stand him, but with him losing his memories of Shoko he seems to be on his way to dying like Marie. Plus he’s a character that just seems destined for tragedy rather than a happy ending. I suppose Akira could die, but I’d hate that.

      I kind of want just a Valvrave movie instead of another season but I am cool with whatever comes next! LOL yeah that tagline is overused and finally the Magus have been exposed! THANK YOU L-ELF

      Haruto will probably die in the final moments of the last episode and Akira yeah I honestly see her dying next which is sad but that would leave Saki alone with some random students.

    Dear Magius Council,

    How’s it feel to be publicly exposed to the world?

    • BlackBriar says:

      Karma is a bitch, isn’t it? Serves those bastards right.

    • d-LaN says:

      Grab the pitchforks!

      ………Or just b*tch abt it in Future Twitter/Facebook.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Finally! I am so freaking happy but I will be pissed if Shoko changes her mind and confesses to Haruto LOL

    This is the Valvrave I know and love. It’s about the super awesome, not about the dumb we had the last few episodes.

  4. zztop says:

    Let’s hope the writers can pull of a somewhat conclusive finale.

    That said, I don’t believe the writers really clarified Haruto’s sexual assault thing from Season 1.

    Either it is supposed to tie in to a yet-to-be-explained revelation about the Valvrave technology and the alien nature of Pino, or it was just for shock factor.

    • Highway says:

      Not only did they not clarify it, finding out 1) the power of Runes is memetic and 2) that Haruto’s runes can be depleted from within makes it completely unnecessary and stupid. Why did Haruto need to rape Saki? The only reason now is “we wanted to shock the audience”. It wasn’t because Pino was hungry, because she could just have fed off Haruto. Basically, I think they blew it and they don’t care, just like they don’t really care about continuity or anything else making sense. It’s still just “throw everything at the wall and distract people with awesome”.

      I mean, really, what was he doing there? “Making Memories”?

    • d-LaN says:

      Maybe the LN adaptation will clarify things up. Or maybe we might not get an explanation at all ._.

      Or its just Pino got too curious abt sexual intercourse.

    The L-Elf we know is back with his old crew again. At least they changed sides after confirming they have a common enemy. What goes around, comes around. If the students have to suffer for the Magius reveal then so should Cain, Amadeus and that bastard ARUS president. Though I’m still not satisfied with Amadeus’ exposure because it was nothing compared to what they did to Saki.

    So Haruto is being cautious by putting up a brave front to rally the survivors behind him. I’ll give him points for that. Oh, this quote should fit such an act.

    “Caution is nothing without charisma. If a man plays the fool then it’s only fools he’ll persuade. But appear to be the devil, and all men will submit”
    – Blackbeard (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag)

    Deaths left and right. Man, the second half has been saturated with tragedy with no exception. Raizou has come a long way from being a bully and it’s sad he had to lose his life during his redemption. Rest in peace, Thunder. You went out like a badass defending your friends. Q-vier has been around for too long. It’s about time someone put him to rest.

    Things aren’t looking good for Haruto. It seems he might also get killed in his ambition to create a place where humans and Magius can co-exist. Meaning Saki and Akira would be the only remaining Valvrave pilots alive. For Shoko’s sake, I hope it doesn’t end up like that.

    What I want to know is, when Module 77 is eventually recaptured, what are they going to do to turn the remaining students into Magius. Satomi clearly became one thanks to the time skips, so I’m wondering if they all had them going into the remaining Valvraves one by one to turn them since their bodies are modified for the change.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Badass L-elf >>>> Sad and depressed L-elf any day of the week and yeah thankfully with the help of his old friends he finally exposed the Magus for what they really are!

      True that quote fits very well.

      Yeah Raizou has come a long way from the start of Valvrave and it is sad to see him die off but at least the deaths happen when they are protecting friends but still I wish Raizou got the last shot and killed Q-vier! Ah well his days are numbered anyway.

      Yeah Akira/Saki might be the only pilots to survive this whole mess.

      Right the “future” scenes show Satomi alive and well which brings the question forward! Will be be forced to become a pilot before the final episode? Like if Akira died would it cause him to freak out and seek revenge? That said are there any spare Valvraves lying around? I guess there was that white one Shoko and the others were building but I assumed it was a fake model? LOL

    Thankfully, the aliens here are not space lilies

    I voted for Akira because revenge is sweet, especially if one does it by himself ohohohohoho

    This show is really moving and moving fast!

    So, this episode was completely fast paced with events happening at lightning speeds. We have the reveal that Cain is the murderer of H-neun (which X-eins kept pretty well to himself especially since last episode he was still wondering whether why H-neun was a traitor and all) they break up into teams and meet up again with L-elf. The three decide to renew their team and together take down Cain and the Council. At the same time, Haruto and the rest of the pilots meet up about this new idea of making a country of their own.

    Unfortunately, Shoko still has to support those under her so she acts coldly to Haruto and treats those on the ship like “other”. Haruto retakes him mech and heads out a fight against Dorssia to retake the Module. This is a wild fight and the kirschbaums who were so powerful before seem a little downgraded to make way for the plot, but that’s fine. As they are fighting, Akira hacks the networks to make room for L-elf and company’s little show below, which is too reveal that the Fuhrer is really an immortal being just like the students! Which….puts into question that if the Magius make the human body that they take over immortal and able to regenerate from lethal wounds, why do they need to get new bodies? Why does that body age? So is really the only difference between kamitsuki and Magius is that they require more runes and the bodies they inhabit age?

    Anyway, now the world knows to the anger of the Council. However, I really don’t know how this is going to solve anything? If the Magius have immortal bodies that can heal form any wound than you really can’t kill them unless you can somehow make them run out of runes which they would have to give up voluntarily. It’s kind of like attempting to make a person make themselves throw up so that they can die of malnutrition/starvation. It’s a pretty hard feat, especially for hundreds of alien refugees. So, while this presentation shows the world some of the truth, it doesn’t show it all, and why would this make the world accept the students any better? All it does is create more monsters for them to be afraid of and/or hate.

    Anyway, Raizo dies here. It wasn’t a very big surprise and didn’t have as much impact as Kyuma, Lieselotte, or Marie’s deaths did. It kind of seemed tacked on. And actually, the whole time I was actually congratulating Q-vier on what an awesomely smart tactical move he made. I honestly thought Q-vier was going to bite it, but he really showed how smart he actually is in that finishing move. However, this has also signed the poor kid’s death warrant. I had really wanted him to live since he’s not a bad kid just raised horribly wrong. However now that he’s actually killed one of the main pilots I’m almost sure he’s going to get killed by one of the other remaining pilots, or something like that.

    So, the episode ends with Haruto and the others still fighting outside, the reveal of the Magius living among them, and Haruto beginning to lose more and more of his memories because of his overuse of VVV1. Cain looks like he is about to join the fray, but he’s yet to unleash him VVV2, Dainsleif. So either that machine is going to be total let down, or this series is going to end in cliffhanger despite the next episodes title. We also see the promise that Saki made was “to never give up” and we also learn that the Magius found out about the Valvraves from Prue, who we can guess was part of the project at one point. He was rescued by Cain, and now he’s determined to get his sister back. Also the way the council woman held a gesture of respect towards Prue, again confirms his status despite their lack of honorifics.

    So we’re down to the last episode and we’ll have to see where it goes. It does look like we may go into epilogue territory, but I really hope that they don’t defeat Cain this easily. It should take more than one episode to defeat Cain, and probably longer to figure out what to do afterward. However, at the rate we’re running out of main characters, any sequel to this will have to have new replacements. There are still questions that need to be answered, but it seems they might rush through them like they did with this episode. H-neun might just stay dead offscreen, we might never know what happened to Haruto’s dad. Will they ever tell us what that large ceremony was for that the magius were planning and needed all those runes for? Will we find out why Prue and Pino are so important. What happens with Prue and Pino meet out in the battlefield? Either this will be all answered next week, or who knows what…..just don’t rush everything and disappoint me Valvrave.

    I give this episode an 8/10.

    Valvrave was a great show, and it has been my one of my favorites of the year.
