True Calendar, Year 71 - A new age where 70% of the human population lives in space thanks to the development of the "Dyson Sphere," a city in space.
The world is divided into two main powers: The Dorssia Military Pact Federation, a power which grew out of a military alliance, and the Atlantic Rim United States (ARUS), which grew in power as it expanded its trade agreements. The minor nation of JIOR has declared neutrality between these two forces and maintained its peace through economic prosperity.
Within JIOR's Sphere, Haruto Tokishima lived an ordinary life as a high school student in the division known as "Module 77" until the Dorssian military begins their sudden invasion. The whole world will be shaken when Haruto meets the mysterious humanoid weapon, Valvrave!

Ratings & Reviews
Valvrave liberates its audience from irony by turning bad into good (part one)
Typically a show like this would be described as so-bad-it's-good, something that's great specifically because it's so silly (whether it's aware of this or not). Valvrave is something of a parody, hyper-aware of what it is and adroit in guiding and teasing the audience's expectations in order to subvert and surpass them with its twists and turns, ultimately constructing a genuinely good plot entirely out of made up entirely of goofball I-can't-take-this-seriously things. Serious developments are gut-bustingly hilarious not because they're stupid but because something stupid is being presented in such a clever way; every time you think it's going to tone itself down, do something typical, or just lose focus and make a clown of itself it'll twist and juke away to a new development that's both utterly ridiculous and an amazing path for the story to go in.
A experimental show!
"Resumed" version, the series maintain herself in a series of plot twist flowed by another plot twist!
Somethings i have to be honest in seasson one must of the cliff chalenger "pay´s" very well!
Here must of that "bad" thing depend of you reaction for plot twist, if they maintain you must of times excited; Ok will be no problem!; if not...will be a big serious problem, because the plot ONLY way they know to walk the plot is in pace of one twist to the next!
In chapter 10 has the must polemical scene in the series!
The price is really too high!
Here must of note maintain because of the plot twist payed in 80% of time and the plot walk in "past, present and future" maintained high the level of expectation about second seasson (i have to be honest about that!).
Underrated Mecha Anime
I thoroughly enjoyed this anime. Great take on a different perspective of Mecha. Great storyline, good character development, superb animation, awesome battles.
Integrate story of students caught in a war then given the chance to become a independent nation free of oppression with the help of unexpected allies and the happenstance of finding the Valvrave Mecha units, but with a horrible price attached to their use.
I found it smartly written, intriguing and suspenseful. Children of war and those who have to become warriors to bring about peace for humanity.
A Great Anime, But an Expensive Buy
by Sam -
A greatly underrated mecha show that fans should grab before it goes out of stock! I personally loved the show for what it is and the first season was a rollercoaster of revelations. Again, like any other anime, this anime had a lot of plot holes(season 3 or spin-off please). The soundtracks were one of the best things to come out of the anime and it made the show pop and stand out.
This box set is just like any other with the cardboard box and blu-ray/dvd, but it also contains a deluxe poster and some art cards as an awesome bonus. A negative aspect of this item would have to be the price. I can't recommend buying the item because of just how expensive it is just for 1 season and a couple of art cards and one deluxe poster. There just isn't enough items in the box(not even a booklet) to justify buying such an expensive boxset. Though if you value how amazing the show was and considering how it's going out of stock I would just buy it.
