Synopsis

True Calendar (T.C.) 71—a new age where 70% of the human population lives in space thanks to the development of "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 maintains its peace through economic prosperity.

Within the 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!

But the whole world will be shaken when Haruto meets the mysterious humanoid weapon, Valvrave!

*sigh* Boy, where do I begin with this one?

If you're familiar with Sunrise, expect the unexpected. Seriously.

So in America, vampires sparkle like Tinkerbell while vampires in Japan pilot awesome-looking mechs? Sounds about right.

The story is pretty outrageous to begin with. Only requirement to pilot a specialized war machine created by a "pacifist", "anti-war" nation is to become a vampire. Along with an entire school of high school students who don't know life beyond luxury and peace to run an entire nation by themselves to compete against possibly a futuristic America and space Nazis. To this day, I don't understand how were they able to last read more

Valvrave the Liberator is a generic mecha series not worth watching and everyone should go watch Majestic Prince or Gargantia on the Verdous planet...This is what i would say if i was someone who doesn't take the time to actually watch whole anime series and just judge it from the first couple episodes.

Valvrave the Liberator at first appears to be an generic mecha anime produced by Sunrise the same who produced the famous Gundam series. Teenagers become super bad asses by piloting OP mechs and blowing up countless enemy grunts. This is the standard Mecha anime formula.

Being produced by Sunrise, one can't help read more

Recommendations

Both are mecha, have a school-life setting, and have main characters with special powers.

Both series are about a male student getting involved in a war when their neutral colony(Heliopolis/JIOR) gets assaulted by ZAFT/Dorssia. The assaulter's purpose is to steal a super weapon(Gundam/Valvrave) secretly developped in that neutral colony. The main characters have different perspective about the war. One has an internal conflict, doesn't want to fight, but has to in order to protect his friends. The other harbors hatred for the Dorssian, but is unsure about his role in the war. Also, the soundtracks for OP/ED are similar in both anime. The main difference is in Valvrave, the main character obtained an inhuman power.
