Time for the final episode!
It seems liked everyone wanted Akira to kill off Q-vier, but after watching this episode you might be surprised to learn who actually takes him out; however it appears we have reached the final episode of Valvrave and I know ending it with twenty-four episodes seems very strange.
See you later space vampires
This was a touching scene and damn I feel bad for L-elf.
Cain’s Valvrave was awesome!
With the Magus being exposed to the entire universe for being immortal monsters you would think everyone would turn on them right? NOPE! Their followers were so quick to jump on that that reveal calling it fake, but that did not last long because that ARUS leader turned traitor and sold the Magus out which made me laugh. We also learned through Cain’s chat with Haruto that the history of the Magus goes far back as biblical times and just about every supernatural myth can be tied back to the Magus and what about the mystery surrounding Pru and Pino? Apparently they were imprisoned and used as a power source for the Valvraves which I kind of saw coming. So what of Haruto, L-elf, Saki and Shoko? Just about all of those key characters suffered a lot in this final episode but I feel for L-elf who lost Haruto after he died from memory loss and yes as much as I hated on Haruto week after week it was still sad to see him die, but I think we always knew he was going to die eventually. Did anyone else catch that line from Saki this week? She basically wanted Haruto to lose his memories of Shoko so she could swoop in and take him away from her? I was like WHOA Saki what are you even saying? I mean sure it was sneaky and underhanded, but I will admit I cheered her on because I really do not like Shoko!
So we should talk about the biggest mysteries of the final episode as in what the hell is going on in the after credits future scenes? Aside from Takahi and Satomi getting married of course! I just want to know why L-elf is still around and why is Shoko alive and why did she became the new red Valvrave pilot and what about that mysterious child we keep seeing? Who are his parents?! Are they saying that Shoko and L-elf got together or is that mini L-elf just a random clone? I mean I still think that the Valvrave pilots are unable to have children because technically they died and last I checked dead things can’t really have offspring, but I know that whole subject is up in the air thanks to vampire lore or or some made up stuff! That said we are dealing with anime and let us not forget Sunrise loves to mess around with anime science so anything is possible. I have to ask was anyone else laughing their asses off when those two random one aliens arrived and pointed their weapons at Shoko? I swear I found her line about becoming friends with them kind of hilarious.
In the end Valvrave was a hit and miss show with tons and tons of mecha fans and not to mention all the damn plot holes in the series and yes I admit I was angry watching Cain who has more combat experience than any other character getting basically one shot! WOW SERIOUSLY HOW? Sadly the power of friendship allows you to own any villain, but after watching weeks of Valvrave I feel we did not get any kind of payoff because we are still left with a ton of questions which makes me hope we get some kind of OVA or movie to explain a few things! I guess we have to wait for the light novel to get translated; however I still managed to have fun watching and talking to everyone about this oddball mecha series.
Extra Valvrave fun
Cain-“Oh my god! Why would you draw that?!”
Yuki Kaji characters lose lots of arms.
Props to Sunrise for animating some of the best mecha battles since Gundam Unicorn!
Love him or hate him Cain was a great main villain.
I remember all the good times Valvrave! I will miss this series.
