The 5th episode of Valvrave the Liberator is out! So here’s a short spoiler opinion of what it’s about for those of you who have yet to watch it. Basically, this episode isn’t really worth watching. As I have observed, the epicness of the show has been on a decline from the 3rd episode onwards. Nothing much to see when “peace” has been restored. I’d rather see mech fights like those in the Gundam series. Here’s a list of interesting things that happened this episode:
- ARUS is quite similar to the Allied Forces while Dorssia is similar to Nazi Germany.(Does that make the plot a remake of World War 2? If so, what does it make JIOR?)
- L-elf did a nice job discovering the other Valvraves. Did he chance upon them, or did he suspect/knew all along that there were others like Haruto’s?
- If L-elf found the other units first, why didn’t he pilot one of them? Why did he lead Haruto and Saki to that place? Has it got to do with his so-called “revolution”? This episode is telling us to keep watching, despite itself being a filler… =.=
To wrap things up, in next episode’s preview, the green Valvrave makes its debut. OMG!!! *Hyperventilates* Beyond that, I’m more curious about who’s the pilot: L-elf or Saki? In the opening theme, L-elf wasn’t shown to be with any Valvrave, so that leaves a big question mark. But then again, given L-elf’s superior combat capabilities, it would be a waste if he doesn’t pilot any Valvrave. If he pilots one of those things, it will definitely be the most epic fight of the whole series. Can’t wait for the next episode.
