    From bad to worse, beware the Valvr*pe
    Valvr*pe the Penetrator is by far one of the most idiotic voyages into bad melodrama I have ever had the displeasure of viewing, and it isn't even half way through its run yet. It starts out as nothing but blindly air headed bad high school antics with a mix of space vampires and blatantly copy pasted scenes of the peon bad guys exploding more than actual Mech fight scenes. Then it transitions ...

    Really good show I recommend
    I normally don't review, but seeing as this has not received the best reviews, I decided to pitch in. This show offers many surprises/plot twists and good character development. The first couple episodes started slow, but the plot has really picked up since then. Hope you give this a try !

    Could only stand one episode
    The main character is an uninspiring twit who lets himself get pushed around, there's a super-secret mecha hidden under the swimming pool of a school (why?), the infiltration team sent to retrieve the mecha is made up of impulsive psychopaths, the main character manages to pilot the mecha perfectly with no prior training (obviously), politics are referenced but never explained in a way that helps ...

    Moments of Brilliance but Hours of Stupidity
    I didn't have much expectations for this anime and I thought it would be a decent gundam rip-off. Unfortunately, it couldn't even meet this. The whole plot is one that is just too hard to believe in. Basically its kids at a high school who get these big robots and suddenly are at war with the world, all while still enjoying the antics of high school. Oh and just to spice things up, we got ...

    Best anime of the season
    This series I find to be one of the best of the spring 2013 season, and I have seen a lot of anime. This is the first anime of the season that has really gotten me excited, it offers interesting characters and even more interesting dynamics. It has a not unheard of take on the sci-fi anime, but offers many twist and turns that surprise and thrill the viewer. This anime leaves you craving more, it ...

    Definately a watchable anime
    The characters are defined well, the action is good. A little more backstory on where the Valvrave's actually came from or their purpose would've been nice (at episode 9). The only thing that kinda irks me are the group of bad guys all have hyphenated names, which sounds silly, but that's just me. Overall, looking forward to how it ends.

    Finally a studio with some balls (review based on Episodes 1-10)
    It's hard to say what I think about Valvrave. It's not your typical mecha show, but at the same time it is. Yes, it's set around a high school (unfortunately) but things are not what they seem. Worth a watch for the beauty of the animation, and the concept, if you already like mecha.

  • slowly building into a awesome show
    After the end of the second episode and the following two episodes I almost gave up on this show. I am so glad I didn't, because while this show did start off slow the drama in the show is getting really good. The mecha action is also really good and is kinda a buffer for a few slow episodes. I can't give this show a five yet because I don't know which route this show is going go in. The promise ...

    A Good mecha themed anime - Epic Trainwreck
    From the mind of Code Geass, Valvrave the Liberator.
    General thoughts: I love this series. School themed mechas with specialized mechs for each one on the valvrave team!

    This is an epic trainwreck as in, it is so bad it is good. I can call out many parts where that was unnecessary or they could've said something different, or he didn't have to do that.

    Music of Valvrave is above average. ...
