With the two halves of Valvrave the Liberator from Aniplex USA out back at the end of 2015 and early 2015, it’s been quiet for this title in the years since. The show is now getting a little additional love thanks to the partnership that Funimation and Aniplex USA have as cousin companies under Sony. The single-cour series from 2013 has been added to Funimation’s streaming in its original Japanese language only with English subtitles.
Plot concept: Haruto Tokishima—by now every citizen of JIOR knew the name of this hero who confronted the Dorssian army’s unjustified invasion and courageously defended his fellow students of Sakimori Academy. But after seeing the sheer power of the Valvrave, both Dorssia and ARUS were ready to take this mysterious humanoid weapon for their own at any cost! With pressure coming from both of these powerful nations, the students of Module 77 decide that it would be best to head for the moon which is neutral territory and declare their independence as New JIOR.
Meanwhile, Haruto, who was initially hesitant of confrontational situations, realizes that in order to survive, he and the other Valvrave pilots must fight to protect their school, country, and everything they held so ear. Why were the Valvraves created? What is hidden behind the “Magius?” Will Haruto and L-elf be able to reveal the truth of the world?!
