Valvrave #22 — The Emo Episode Again… Again

December 12th, 2013


I had actually forgotten he ‘killed’ her father.

I know I’m jumping order here, but this is a better comedy than Multiple Choice. I’ll try to get it and either IS or KLK after dinner tonight. Probably IS because I’d rather not have my evening include being screamed at for 20 minutes while rolling my eyes and already picturing the comments about how I just don’t get the deepness of listening to vacuous platitudes screamed at length.


Well, usually is a better comedy. This was just yet another angsty episode of angst, the… fifth? Seventh? I don’t want to actually try to count. It had it all. Copious flashbacks, metaphysical encounters with the ‘dead’ (wasn’t the brain wiped girl just… uh… brain wiped though… again?), metaphysical encounters with yourself, and then when he finally got his groove back, he erupted in the power of magic. Then they romantically stared into each other’s eyes, had a triumphant handshake over an insert song, and vowed once again to fight again… again.

And that was really about it. Saki getting freed was about the only thing that advanced events in any way whatsoever. The rest was just recycled nonsense the show’s already trodden to a bloody pulp on the road. I guess Shouko also learned that the Nazis weren’t telling the whole truth, so you know, that’s a shock for all involved. Maybe she can lead the surviving students in singing their school song again. It worked before!

    CG suits at last. Orange CG suits.

  • FlameStrike says:

    My fucking god, again, again, again. How many times are these stupid characters going to have their convictions shaken, then RISE UP AND SWEAR TO FIGHT AND NOT LOOK BACK (AGAIN?!). I’m betting at least one more time before the end of the series.

  • flamerounin says:

    umm, aren’t they supposed to have already done this earlier, like, IN THE FIRST SEASON.

    god, now i am horrified to think that sunrise is going to announce an “unexpected” third season by the end of this.

  • Fate says:

    This show was so good when it was bad in a lovable terrible way. Now it is just plain bad in a none lovable way.

  • Chevalier says:

    Not surprised that you didn’t get it.

    This was one of the better episodes in a while, so screw you whiners.
