Synopsis

Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictitious continent reminiscent of 1930s Europe. The continent, called Europa, is divided into two main powers: The Imperial Empire, a monarchy in the east, and the alliance of democracies called the Federation in the west. In this world, there is a very important resource called ragnite; its uses range from fueling weapons of war to use in medical treatments. Since ragnite is such an important resource, the Federation and the Empire are constantly at war with each other for it.

The story takes place in the neutral country of Gallia, known for its bountiful reserves of ragnite, when the Empire decides to invade and seize the ragnite for themselves. The story follows Welkin, the son of a former war hero; Isara, Welkin's Darcsen adoptive sister; and Alicia, a member of the Bruhl town watch, as they fight the Imperials in the ragtag Gallian militia group, Squad 7.

Squad 7 fights to regain their homes and livelihoods with Welkin as the squad leader and commander of the Edelweiss tank; Alicia as a scout; Isara as the pilot of the Edelweiss, and a variety of colorful individuals.

Well, well, well, look what we have here? Can anyone say "under-appreciated" and "under-watched"? Those words would probably describe Valkyria Chronicles very well.

At first glance, this anime probably doesn't look like anything special. Originally based on a tactical role-playing game of the same name for the PS3, this anime might look like a couple of things. At first glance, it might just look like a military anime that wants to chock itself full of violence and gunplay. However, this is a serious, serious misconception. Let's get to the review and see why, shall we?

Valkyria Chronicles went down in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best strategy-rpg on the PS3 and, having played it, I can't disagree. So when I found this anime (finally) I was pretty revved up.

I looked for this anime a while ago but I could never find it, either because it hadn't been released or I simply didn't look hard enough. The fact that it has been adapted from a game shouldn't bother the ones who have played the game because it's a pretty faithful adaptation. The emphasis has simply shifted slightly, from the more war-oriented action game to a more character-driven story.

Valkyria Chronicles

What would make you go to war? Everyone has some line that can't be crossed. Weather it is your home being taken away, your family and friends are in danger, or your lover is also going to war. In “Valkyria Chronicles” a small country is pushed into a war that they most likely will not win. Now the people of that country need to ask themselves that very question.

When the show starts out the thing is a mess. The story was slowly paced and had filler episode thrown in so it took forever to tell anything. Slow pacing I could have dealt with read more

This anime is the adaptation of the homonymous PS3 Strategy/jrpg game. Yes, it’s a game adaptation; negative bias from the first second I heard about it. I haven’t played the game, as I don’t own a PS3 and the way things are going with my savings, I probably never will. Anyways, I read lots of info about the game, watched some trailers and found a text about stuff that are different between game and anime. So I’m not completely ignorant with what is going on with the source material. Ugh, I said “source”, here I go again with my negative bias towards something that is read more

Anime: Allison to Lillia
Both have similar story and characters. they main characters want to stop the war between two sides. The feeling you egt from Valkyria Chronicles is similar to Allison and Lillia. Both very good anime (well Valkyria is good so far)

Anime: Pumpkin Scissors
Both anime are set in fictional world with WWI technology and shows adventures of military unit. 
reportRecommended by hajil
Anime: So Ra No Wo To
Both are alternate realities with a European WWI or WWII kind of feel mixed in with a little super technology. Valkyria Chronicles is a bit more conventional in its relationships whereas Sora no Woto hints at Shoujo-ai (girl/girl love) but never really goes there. Both are beautifully animated.

Anime: Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid
Extremely dense male lead and a strong female lead who tries to convey their feeling to their respective male leads...o yea both have to do with fighting as well 
reportRecommended by madskizzles
Anime: Toshokan Sensou
Valkyria Chronicles also seems like a war and love story and comedy all rolled into one like Toshokan Sensou. These shows have a similar military and comedy feeling. And Inoue Marina is the voice actress of both main protagonists, Kasahara Iku and Melchiott Alicia. Both of them are kinda tsundere and tomboyish, although Alicia looks little bit more feminine. Even other characters of these shows may have common attributes.
