The sale numbers is alright, I guess. Sunrise usually depends their sale on the model kit, though.

It is certainly the most popular female cast, but too forced, yet not I connect with it, however, wait until next season.

Hello Everybody, I have seen this anime and felt the need to write a Review on it, I decided to post it here because this is a Discussion thread on this anime, hope im in the right spot. Its more an explanation to what it is made out of, This will contain SPOILERS please read only if you have watched the first season, I hope Im not alone with this point of view, please tell me what you think. Cheers.

This Anime is realy one of the worst there are, and I am very surprised that many people for some reason praise it, lets sum up why this Anime is in reality very bad.
This anime reminds me of Resident Evil Afterlife, now all the real critics out there will know what im talking about, It has absolutely no own content or atmosphere, is is an awful mix of every type and every sceen of every anime out there, il Number this down into three parts.

1. First thing that repulsed me is the Redicilous Mech design, the mechs look like a mix between Sailormoon, Pokemon and Powerrangers. what do we see? we see The main Mech haveing Fairy wings, why? to fly? how come none of the others have those and can still fly? why does it have 6 or 8 knifes at its sides which it never uses? And......? The Harakiri beam-slash weapon.....is hilarious, it is the most nonsencial act and weapon i have seen in any anime, nobody would invent something like that, it makes absolutely no sense.
What about the other mechs? we get a mech that has six aditional legs sticking out of its arse, which serve the purpose of creating Magic Pentagrams to perform a walljump IN SPACE!!! it uses two Xena like rings that it THROWS at enemies which come back via energy chain as a main weapon, does this make sense to anyone? Another Mech is all pink colored and looks like a cheerleader and its main weapon is a Magic wand that instantly makes enemies turn on eachother on touch, why? I dont know. Another Mech has Insect pokemon like wings that can shield it and stop literaly any blast, and has a crosbow like weapon attached to its arm. I think one of the most stupid design choices in history was to equip a mech with a laser bow, like in Super Robot Taisen, that midle ages weapon just doesnt combine with high tech mechs at any length of the way. The last mech and that about covers it looks like that big pokemon with four arms or like Prince Gora from Mortal Combat and can split his 4 arms, each into another four or something, each with another cannon, and as if that wasnt enough, every mech and pilot has an own color, just like in powerrangers. What Sunrise has to understand is that we are not in the 60es anymore, the time when anime was just being experimented with and rediculously overdecorated giant robots passed by is long past. I love Mecha anime but I dont like Gundam, because the Mechs look silly, Mechs make a good and logical appearance in Macross and Full metal Panic for example, but not here.
2. Reason two is the awful mix of stolen bodyparts and braincrushing plot decissions this anime is made out of. The main heros name is Haruto/Naruto, he is a mech pilot and a Vampire, when he gets mad because of his "Curse" he gets those wierd shiny red scars on his face, which have no other purpose or explanation other than decoration, thats stupid. We see lots of scenes where he gets shot and bleeds from lots of entry wounds but is still alive, which is straight from hellsing, why is he the only pilot in the team affected by the curse? nobody else seems to go crazy at any time, when he bites someone he "swaps bodies" and check this, it turns out that the curse of being a Vampire forces him not to loose his mind and drink another persons blood, it forces him to loose his mind and RAPE A JAPANESE SCHOOL GIRL!!! Because his Pilot assist program in the Mech is a Girl that is hungry for sex. WTF???
Wierd, this anime seems to be targeted at 6 year old kids judgeing by overdecorated design and decisions that make no sense, and at the same time that cannot be true because we see absolutely adult scenes with blood, gore and rapeing.
It gets better, remember the scene where the enemy uses a giant drill to brake through several layers and levels of the colony to get through to the command centre? Is that ringing any Bells? Evangeleon, the scene where the angel turns into a giant drill and is slowly breaking through several layers...to get to the Geofront Nerve central base. speaking of Evangeleon, in this anime its not Rej Ayanami parts floating in red liquid capsules its Valveraves, shure theres lots of capsules with liquids in animes and movies but these look just like the evangeleon ones, just look it up and compare if you want. And whats with those wierd flashbacks into the distant future? where the previously raped girl mops up some grandpa on a totaly stupid looking mech (a skullhead-fighter-mech-transformer) 200 years after the current events? Thats also from somewhere, just cant point my finger at it right now.
Everybody loves Elelf, because he is the most interesting character in the series, why? Because he is Lelouches Clone, as in from Code Geass, only that Lelouche had reasoning behind his predictions and they were far from perfect by far, whereas Elelf simply predicts exactly whats going to happen for no other reason than the Authors blessing. Earthquake, Panick, 13;14, the answer is right behind your back. It all happened but it is impossible for him to know that Haruto would be exactly at that spot at that very moment and that he wouldnt be faceing the door, this has nothing to do with strategy or probability, it simply happens exactly like that because the author sais it will, thats it. no mater how great a strategist you are you cant predict that at 15:12 on a distant planet in a distant galaxy an alien is going prumpet, if you catch my drift.
3. Reason Number three is over the top childish Highschool kids createing an own country out of their school in a seperated space module, trying to raise digital net money with singing, like what will they need that money for? The increadibly unlikely, better said impossible motives, actions and decisions of the characters, like the raped girl gets a marrige proposal from the main hero because he feels responsible for what he did, but sais NO even though she wants to because he feels responsible, Oh come on, What does this mean or how can this make sense? or the crazy hacker girl and her reasoning, none of it makes sense.
And the fact that with Sunrise nothing has changed since the late seventies, it is STILL Space Colonies and Evil Empires it has been over 30 years, and it is the funniest idea of how to refresh Gundam, the Author shows a hysterical grabbing reflex that just tries to mindlessly take from everything else there is in anime like hes about to drown if he doesnt. This Anime doesnt need an Author because he hasnt made up or invented anything that is in this anime. every bit and piece is stolen or reused and is so rediculously thrown together that it could never make sense.

I agree, they are trying to make money with it, but what gets to me is that they're doing it with a sub zero effort, Lets remember Hellsing Ultimate (HU), Im a critic at heart but I have found absolutely nothing to complain about in HU save the Sultan part, Music, Scenes, Plot, Humor, Characters, its Legendary, You see the effort of a Genious to perform art, and the traditional english "Its allways the Buttler" spot, Great. In valverave, no heart at all, and when I said nothing has changed since the 70ies, i meant to point out that the Author hasent done any work, its reused or stolen, and people still manage to give it a rateing of 9.5/10 how can I agree to that? and thank you for mentioning that It failed and that they try to beat money out of it. Anime is in my oppinion a form of art, and when Companies try to beat money out of it lets be honest while rateing their production.

Macross Frontier, Full Metal Panic, Both great and can very well compete, my subjective oppinion is they are better.

i can see where you are going with your review of it and yes it does take elements from other show, but it does try to do something unique, using the valvravn mythos is actually a smart idea, i honestly never heard of it before this show and now i want to learn more, and honestly i thought the mecha designs were ridiculous at first but they grew on me and they were definitely unique in design and that was a welcome change

Never heared of the Valverave Mythos either, didnt know there is one, Il look it up, thanks, but are you shure the designs are unique? Pokemon were unique when they came out, cant honestly say that more Bodyparts make a Mech more unique. The problem here is, I think they overdid it, if they would have used the mech design they had for the main mech, and altered it, minus all the extra arms and legs, that would work much better for my taste, Stands out of the other Mech series but not an apealing design in my oppinion. The Animators did a great job though, the Graphics look top, yet thats as much praise as i can honestly give.

yes it is unique, i can honestly say that if you put the valvrave mech in any of the other mech series out there it would definitely stand out even without the extra equipment, even the minimalistic design of the waffe's would stand out and feel like they didn't belong, say if you put the mechs from full metal panic in gundam they would look like they belong but but a valvrave mech there it wouldn't and valvave and gundam are made by the same company, and the mythos valvravn not valverave while there is a difference in name it is used in this series

Thank you for making me love Valvrave even more!! )) I understand why you hate this--for you can't relate. Just kindly rewatch it without biases and skipping okay, and enjoy life.

Its more an explanation to what it is made out of, This will contain SPOILERS please read only if you have watched the first season, I hope Im not alone with this point of view, please tell me what you think. Cheers.

This Anime is realy one of the worst there are, and I am very surprised that many people for some reason praise it, lets sum up why this Anime is in reality very bad.
This anime reminds me of Resident Evil Afterlife, now all the real critics out there will know what im talking about, It has absolutely no own content or atmosphere, is is an awful mix of every type and every sceen of every anime out there, il Number this down into three parts.

1. First thing that repulsed me is the Redicilous Mech design, the mechs look like a mix between Sailormoon, Pokemon and Powerrangers. what do we see? we see The main Mech haveing Fairy wings, why? to fly? how come none of the others have those and can still fly? why does it have 6 or 8 knifes at its sides which it never uses? And......? The Harakiri beam-slash weapon.....is hilarious, it is the most nonsencial act and weapon i have seen in any anime, nobody would invent something like that, it makes absolutely no sense.
What about the other mechs? we get a mech that has six aditional legs sticking out of its arse, which serve the purpose of creating Magic Pentagrams to perform a walljump IN SPACE!!! it uses two Xena like rings that it THROWS at enemies which come back via energy chain as a main weapon, does this make sense to anyone? Another Mech is all pink colored and looks like a cheerleader and its main weapon is a Magic wand that instantly makes enemies turn on eachother on touch, why? I dont know. Another Mech has Insect pokemon like wings that can shield it and stop literaly any blast, and has a crosbow like weapon attached to its arm. I think one of the most stupid design choices in history was to equip a mech with a laser bow, like in Super Robot Taisen, that midle ages weapon just doesnt combine with high tech mechs at any length of the way. The last mech and that about covers it looks like that big pokemon with four arms or like Prince Gora from Mortal Combat and can split his 4 arms, each into another four or something, each with another cannon, and as if that wasnt enough, every mech and pilot has an own color, just like in powerrangers. What Sunrise has to understand is that we are not in the 60es anymore, the time when anime was just being experimented with and rediculously overdecorated giant robots passed by is long past. I love Mecha anime but I dont like Gundam, because the Mechs look silly, Mechs make a good and logical appearance in Macross and Full metal Panic for example, but not here.
2. Reason two is the awful mix of stolen bodyparts and braincrushing plot decissions this anime is made out of. The main heros name is Haruto/Naruto, he is a mech pilot and a Vampire, when he gets mad because of his "Curse" he gets those wierd shiny red scars on his face, which have no other purpose or explanation other than decoration, thats stupid. We see lots of scenes where he gets shot and bleeds from lots of entry wounds but is still alive, which is straight from hellsing, why is he the only pilot in the team affected by the curse? nobody else seems to go crazy at any time, when he bites someone he "swaps bodies" and check this, it turns out that the curse of being a Vampire forces him not to loose his mind and drink another persons blood, it forces him to loose his mind and RAPE A JAPANESE SCHOOL GIRL!!! Because his Pilot assist program in the Mech is a Girl that is hungry for sex. WTF???
Wierd, this anime seems to be targeted at 6 year old kids judgeing by overdecorated design and decisions that make no sense, and at the same time that cannot be true because we see absolutely adult scenes with blood, gore and rapeing.
It gets better, remember the scene where the enemy uses a giant drill to brake through several layers and levels of the colony to get through to the command centre? Is that ringing any Bells? Evangeleon, the scene where the angel turns into a giant drill and is slowly breaking through several layers...to get to the Geofront Nerve central base. speaking of Evangeleon, in this anime its not Rej Ayanami parts floating in red liquid capsules its Valveraves, shure theres lots of capsules with liquids in animes and movies but these look just like the evangeleon ones, just look it up and compare if you want. And whats with those wierd flashbacks into the distant future? where the previously raped girl mops up some grandpa on a totaly stupid looking mech (a skullhead-fighter-mech-transformer) 200 years after the current events? Thats also from somewhere, just cant point my finger at it right now.
Everybody loves Elelf, because he is the most interesting character in the series, why? Because he is Lelouches Clone, as in from Code Geass, only that Lelouche had reasoning behind his predictions and they were far from perfect by far, whereas Elelf simply predicts exactly whats going to happen for no other reason than the Authors blessing. Earthquake, Panick, 13;14, the answer is right behind your back. It all happened but it is impossible for him to know that Haruto would be exactly at that spot at that very moment and that he wouldnt be faceing the door, this has nothing to do with strategy or probability, it simply happens exactly like that because the author sais it will, thats it. no mater how great a strategist you are you cant predict that at 15:12 on a distant planet in a distant galaxy an alien is going prumpet, if you catch my drift.
3. Reason Number three is over the top childish Highschool kids createing an own country out of their school in a seperated space module, trying to raise digital net money with singing, like what will they need that money for? The increadibly unlikely, better said impossible motives, actions and decisions of the characters, like the raped girl gets a marrige proposal from the main hero because he feels responsible for what he did, but sais NO even though she wants to because he feels responsible, Oh come on, What does this mean or how can this make sense? or the crazy hacker girl and her reasoning, none of it makes sense.
And the fact that with Sunrise nothing has changed since the late seventies, it is STILL Space Colonies and Evil Empires it has been over 30 years, and it is the funniest idea of how to refresh Gundam, the Author shows a hysterical grabbing reflex that just tries to mindlessly take from everything else there is in anime like hes about to drown if he doesnt. This Anime doesnt need an Author because he hasnt made up or invented anything that is in this anime. every bit and piece is stolen or reused and is so rediculously thrown together that it could never make sense.
I'm sorry but I just cannot appreciate these kind of biased reviews, especially if it revolved around my favorite series like Valvrave. If you don't like it, then more power to you and just don't enjoy this show again when the other half finishes.
