At first glance, Kakumeiki Valvrave doesn't really stand out, fraught with poor writing, a slew of seemingly one-dimensional characters, and a rather nonsensical setting of a highschool drifting through local outer space. It follows that many would consider it fodder for the 'ironic' viewers and people of poor taste, a waste of time for the rest of the population. This preconception, however, is so extravagantly wrong, that I, as any person of reputable conscious, have set out to right it. By writing it.
What exactly IS a Valvrave? We must first address this conflict. One of those "gundams", perhaps? A superweapon that strikes fear into the hearts of its enemies? Both are wrong. A Valvrave, in its very essence, is a runaway locomotive of human suffering, teenage angst, and beautiful colors, as well as flawless deconstruction of Humankind's struggle against its own nature and our surroundings. Our main character, Haruto, is himself a representation of humanity as a whole. Following suit, the cast exemplifies each aspect of the human experience. When combined together, Sunrise crafts a profound case study on what it means to be alive, to love, and accomplish goals.
In order to protect his homeland, Haruto Tokushima takes up the mantle of Valvrave, shrugging off his status as a human in favor of the massive power granted by this unknown mech. In and of itself, this action is a paragon of the well known 'deal with the devil' cliche, used by so many media series. However, beneath the surface, Sunrise draws a powerful comparison rooted in human history. In order to get what we want, something must be sacrificed, and order to accomplish violent, if noble goals, we must forsake our very human nature. Throughout the course of human history, in order to achieve victory in wars to protect homeland, honor, and resources, people have constantly chosen to kill rather than be killed. Although both Haruto and the killers in question both continue to exist, the course they've chosen has irretrievably thrown away the innocence they once held, a fundamental piece of human nature. In short, Haruto's deal with the devil is choice that all great conquerers have gone though, and by extension. something that all humans have to undergo on a smaller scale to survive the world around them.
The side cast, too, brings pieces of a larger feast to the table. The feast of human suffering and struggle. Shoko, the formerly loco prime minister of the space highschool, as a character, is a parable of the innocence lost by children across the world as they age and are confronted by conflict. Once a fountain of youthful energy and optimism, Haruto murders her Dad for some reason, destroying her spirit, for the rest of her life. All people have to grow up, Sunrise is telling us here, even if it takes something horrendous to do it. Another character, Saki, represents each gender's struggle to find mutual empathy, acceptance and love. An important aspect of any romantic relationship is intimacy and forgiveness, which Saki demonstrates admirably as she is violated by Haruto. The masters at Sunrise once again give us a potent life lesson: no matter what happens, stick it out, because it's never the other person's fault when they do something terrible. Finally, L-Elf's tactical foresight reaches near omniscient levels as his plans guide the space highschool crew to victory time and time again. However, his former mentor miraculously and flawlessly defeats him in both planning and hand-to-hand combat. This time, Sunset paints a profound picture of the nature of knowledge and skill: even if you think you know things, you really don't, and even if you think you're good at something, you actually aren't because there's someone who's way better just around the corner
Surely, Sunrise's 'Kakumeiki Valvrave' is the most intellectually strong and thought provoking anime to be released in recent years. It's elements and the introspection inspired within myself by them have fundamentally changed my perspective on life, in a way rivaled by Neon Genesis Evangelion. I only hope my review helps others understand the profound sublties overlooked by other reviewers read more
