Oh God, is that Flay from Gundam Seed? One of the worst characters I hated it in Season 1. There's also a somewhat similar character voiced by the same VA in Destiny but not nearly as bad.

But ya, those two are somewhat similar.

Edit: I also noticed that wiki added the comedy tag to the series lol; not MAL yet though.


I feel like I am the only person in the world who liked Flay. Not because she's a particular likable character, but again, she's such a terrible, manipulative, psychotic person. I found her transformation from wanting Kira dead to being extremely possessive of him to be well done. My only complaint with her was she was put on a bus for most of the second half

Flay's character was a bit overboard, but still entertaining. It got the viewer (for the most) part to hate her face, yet,

Let's see, blue or yellow? Will there be a pink one? Will it be Sailor Moon, Power Rangers, Voltron or Vividred Operation color palette? LOL

For me the real question is, when will Shoko get one? Or will she remain non-Vampyric?

Super silly, enemy withdraws all the time like the good old days of anime.

The green Valvrave Carmilla is fun though, reminds me of a spider...
Shoko has to get one, and I think L-Elf too. So I wonder who else? Personally I'd like for Yamada to have one - he makes me laugh!

a lot of people would like to see ERU ELLFUUUUUUUUU (i myself do as well) and really he should get more screen time considering he is tagged as a "main character" so far he has gotton jack shit beside his body stolen and the kekaku doori

edit: now that i am looking up lacus clyne she has way more R rated fanart than i originally found >.>


I'm another vote for the triumphant return of L-Elf: he's going to be the one with the interesting backstory..."Dorrsia took away my girl because I hesitated: now I will avenge her through violent revolution!"

I know its popular among some to say this show is a parody, or satire or some such, but I can't really buy that. The show is certainly silly, but it seems like the humor comes more from the overly sincere actions of characters who are doing things that come across as either absurd or stupid. Generally speaking, sincerity is hard to fake well...so I tend to think the show is too sincere to be an intentional joke.

Of course, if I'm right, this show should get pretty dark, pretty fast. At some point, there has to be a consequence to "retiring from humanity", particularly considering how flippantly Saki agrees to do so. I don't know what the consequence will be...but, considering how ham-handed most of the "serious" moments in this show are handled, it probably won't be subtle.

I don't know...I guess, if you buy into my feelings about the show, I must be enjoying this show ironically. I am enjoying it, but, boy, is it dumb.

Yup, I made the same point in an earlier post: Valvrave is definitely not an intentional comedy. Clearly the themes it's covering are all meant to be dark, but, like you say, it's so hamfisted and OTT that it's impossible to take seriously: Hatarakou Maou I laugh with, Valvrave I laugh at. And from the opening episode there were some quite serious issues that will have to rear their heads again...and yes I suspect I'll still be laughing even then!! Valvrave is like watching a car-crash - so bad, but you have to do it!

try saying L-elf (11) as the angry one eyed friend

ERU-ELLLFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

~~~

I'm not sure if ERU-ELLLFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! can even save the series after the bs of eps 2-6 but he can certainly try and live up to the expectations. I do think once all the power rangers have been assigned ERU-ELLLFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! will lead them as the master planner, which will cliffhanger s1 and continue in s2.

again ERU-ELLLFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

edit: ALL HAIL ERU-ELLLFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

I...don't....even KNOW who those are!! *Goes off to check* Are they your guesses hpulley or is that the info from the site? Yay for Yamada getting one! Kinda predictable that Haruto's best friend gets one. Ooh, apparently shut-in girl gets one: will she emerge or operate it remotely from her secret cardboard home? I guess Shoko really is too dumb to be trusted with such a complex machine!

I only rage at starcraft 2, and save the the facepalming to bad anime.

Yes, I sleep. I am human after all... why do you ask?

in other news: I am not sure why I watch valvrave but something engrosses me into watching it and in a certain aspect doesn't this make it a successful anime?

I don't sleep enough either and if I'm up I should be watching anime or reading books not posting... silly me.

But yes, this anime is so bad it's good. Unintentionally comedic but fun. I look forward to it each week so I say it is successful.
