    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 ...

    So bad it's mildly laughable (Ep.1-11 Review)
    Valvr*ape is so over the top bad that it manages to be mildly entertaining in a disappointing sort of way through its sheer awfulness. Like a passenger train wreck that smashed into an elementary school bus with all the little bodies bloodied and strewn across the pavement. It's horrifying but you can't stop watching. Sadly for you gore fans it cuts out all that and just sticks to being bad. ...

    Tries and falls far short
    Mech combat is scares and when it does happen it consists largely of copy pasted scenes. Characters are hollow one dimensional annoyances that act in a truly inane & childish manner even for high schoolers. (Excluding L-elf, the only character in the anime with any kind of depth.) The show subtly makes fun of itself and how ridiculously bad it is here and there but then goes and shoots itself in ...

    Good but Not Great Mecha Anime
    If you enjoy anime with giant robots you should enjoy this show. The show has good voice acting, decent visuals, and an interesting universe that can draw you in. The plot and pacing is not always great, but it's still a fun show. Valvrave is not quite as good as other Mecha shows, but holds its own within the genre.

    Disappointing, falls short of worthy praise
    For the majority of this series there is nothing but idiotic scenes that seem to be written by high schoolers. And while their are great moments of high emotional praise, the series falls short of any real consistency. I have enjoyed the few moments that were worthy, but the moment the story caved through with very little info on the valvraves and the people who developed them, eventually took ...

    It's so bad that its actually amazing! Worthy of a 5 Star Propaganda Rating
    Valvrave literally dares you watch to each episode. It swears its soul purpose is to successively top the "ridiculousness" of each of the episodes all the way down to the season finale.

    Every single episode has its share of memorable surprises. Thats right, all 12 of them. And what's funny is that it manages to keep the hype train going regardless of how laughably ridiculous (yes, I mean that ...

    2013 Anime of Year - Valvrave the Liberator
    After Code Geass masterpiece in story telling. I thought I would never witness such calibre in storying in an anime but Valvrave the Liberator blew me by surprise. A Must Watch for anime lover outside.

    Note - I know a lot of people have different opinion but i would like to point out that, Valvrave the Liberator is NOT a Code Geass Rip-off. While both anime featured Mech Robot. Valvrave the ...

    Could have been amazing if not for its hiccups
    The art style and music are very well done, the mechs are interesting and are the best designed out of nearly every mecha I have ever seen. The problems come in to play here with the characters though. Many characters seem to have rapid mood swings and inconsistent personalities. There is virtually no explanation for many of the crucial details in the show, with one of the biggest being character ...

    An excellent anime about conquest and freedom.
    Definitely one of my favorite Animes out there. It has a Code Geass feeling in how it's about rebellion, war, and claiming power but it approaches the genre in a new and refreshing way.

    The Anime is definitely not for kids under 13 as it proves to contain subject matter that I was quite shocked to see. However all of it is tastefully done with superb scenes that show the emotional development ...

    Don't know if parody
    So I am a self professed mecha lover. This is not something to show others to bring them to the genre.

    Its a show about superhuman pilots with mechs that protect a dwindling population of school age punks, who go on to form their own country. Also there are 12 episodes.

    So first I will say the good stuff, there is humor, a lot of it. There are more characters with singular personality ...
