Yup, I watched the latest episode without thinking too much about it and hehe, it was just like the comedy that I thought it'd be. Oh Saki...

Welcome to the Dark Side!!

I seriously can't stop laughing at Valvrave!! Just nothing makes sense! There I was rooting for Saki because I thought she was dark and clever: no she's just a shallow jilted starlet who wants to be noticed!! (With a sad past of course: mustn't forget the backstory!) Lor' I wish CR had more emoticons to express the depth of my amusedness! Green's taken! Who's next up in a flashy Valvrave suit I wonder?

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...

OMG, Saki is crazy!!!

On the surface, she's a cute and cheery idol; but behind the scenes she's bitter and manipulative, with a dark past and a hunger for power.

I guess that's why I like her. I also liked when she trolled the class president girl.

Let's see:
Red: Closed combat
Green: Mid--ranged combat
Yellow: Heavy cannons
Blue: Sniper? (with bow)
Purple: Not sure what's the staff for.

I loved when she took Haruto's body for a joyride.

She strikes me as someone who is really going to enjoy the body hopping power

I think it is interesting that the show let a female character be the impetuous, egomaniac pilot of the show...still, it does make me wonder where the show is going.

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.

Every so often you've confined a show to the dust bin, to not give you anything interesting, and then that all changes. Saki really impressed me. She is egotistical, immature, manipulative, obsessed with fame, and in way over her head, but that's why I like her so much. She's the first really flawed character we've had in this show. One could develop her character in a whole number of interesting ways, and I'm interested now to see if the show will capitalize on them.

BTW, yes, she is very reminiscent of Flay Allster from Gundam Seed, but at least she's not hoping for the death of the main character for petty reasons. Geese Sunrise, how many inspirations from Seed are you going to take?

Also, can someone tell me how those tarantula legs of her Valvrave were working? They seemed to be pushing off space, which doesn't make any sense.

you're saying


=


seems about right...

anyways the anime went downhill from ep 2 and has turned (slowly but surly) into a comedic pile of rubbish.

quote and paraphrased thank you anon

valvrave will not be remembered as a mech action anime but for for the comedic failures it implored

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.

no no that is flay



lacus is the one with the = hairpin

something related to the thread err... it was really poorly paced

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 >.>

Oops, I wrote that wrong as Lacus lol. I met Flay. Too much Gundam Seed and Destiny recently. I confused their names since they were with Kira from season 1.

Then, there's also Meer that looked like her from Destiny. On topic of Valvrave, pretty sure Saki's going to trigger a death flag soon at this rate. I mean, she wants to be 'famous'. Everyone knows you get more famous once you're dead. Just a speculation.
