Episode 1

Dafuq did I just watch? Girls getting raped to become weapons, yeah, that's what. Well, seeing that this was made to market a video game and that Arms is doing the animation that I wasn't surprised this show is garbage out of the gate as there's no backstory whatsoever. It just gets straight to the fanservice and action, all while finding excuses to go ecchi. Anyway, at least the animation looks pretty decent for something done by Arms, and there's something going on at school that has my attention, but I'm not in this for the long run, that much I can say.


I'm so happy that there is someone on this forum that agrees with me! This show is so pathetic. While it manages to ,ironically, pass the Bechtel test, this show is easily as bad for women as corsets and prostitution combined. I didn't expect it to be as ecchi as it was, but I'm now seriously rethinking my life decisions. Also, the whole Tonomoke-virgin joke was not funny at all. And finally, why the fuck is this now a school. And why is there a school for girls to rape eachother into weapons? And why are the character designs so bad?

This show represents what is wrong with some parts of anime, and will turn away people from the genre due to the oversexualization.

Valkyrie Drive is a nice family friendly show that I would recommend to all my friends and family.

i need that ep 2



Do NOT listen to the above.

This show should NOT be watched with friends unless they are expecting to see molestation and lots of animated breasts.

That said, I had no expectations when watching this. I had not seen any previews for it and had never heard of it.

I just clicked play and WOAH!!!

Annoyed by Mamori, and the action is great.

But I'm just not into the yuri stuff.

......

what...the...hell?

Normally I give new shows 3 episodes before I make a decision, but I'm not sure I'll be able to stick with this that long


Sometimes I'm ok with this kind of show (Love Sekirei for example) but this one was...a bit much

So a show that is full on ecchi will turn people away from the ecchi genre for being too much of what the ecchi genre is about?

No backstory? A rush in judgement from only one episode. Not every series gives away the backstory from the start.

And there was no rape. The term you are looking for is sexual assault. Plus, the only one who this might apply to is Mamori. The first girl definitely wasn't protesting it and the second girl, being a masochist, might have very well approved of it as well.

It should be just an adult only anime ! Why this would be considered even regular anime IDK !

I watched all the ecchi shows in Summer this show makes them look pale in comparsion!

I dont want to talk about what took place !

So I am done with this ! I cut down my viewing a lot this season and will just enjoy / or watch the shows that passed!

All we need is a "Nyx" scene to complete the show.

I found myself unfortunately distracted by the distinct lack of mermaids in that first episode.

Otherwise, it seemed sort of refreshing for this season. I do hope they bother to actually explain what actually is happening to these girls, but it felt like a good balance of action and fanservice. Probably not going to be for everyone, but most anime aren't. My main concern right now is that at some point the oppressive light will block out actual action, but that first episode was not terribly done in my opinion.

Also, did anyone else expect the reverse in their roles as wielder and weapon? Found myself pleasantly surprised.

Ummm yeah okay then....would like to call it CrossAnge 2.0 but at least that made some sense by having Ange exiled to a prison colony that had a purpose as they threw the whole norma thing right into the open in the first episode. This, so far, just makes no sense.

Why won't you fight? Okay lets fight already! Ahhh geez dunno I just woke up on the beach of a island and don't know whats going on I suppose? Think they watched Ange along with Blade & Soul and thought, okay our female lead will be a cross between Ange in looks with Alka's personality. I have a simple rule of thumb for shows, if you can strip out the fan service will the rest of the story stand on it's own enough. This one yeah gotta give it a episode 2 to expand on the premise more how I'm viewing it atm because otherwise it's just hey lets fight for some reason for now.

Pics for those that asked.

Oh look we're on Arzenal, sorry Mermaid.

First two you meet when you wakeup on a island that you don't know where you're at, oh it's going to be one of those shows.

Yes your initial reaction as you watch the one in they yellow bikini being transformed into a weapon

No I don't get it now but I love a trainwreck every so often.

Oh hi Ange 2.0

The redhaired girl is now a sword..okay

That's because most of the screensjots are either:
1. Glowing blobs of light used for censorship
-or-
2. Of things that can not be posted to CR's forums.
