Spin off of Chibi Valvrave when?
Are those breasts on Audrey?
Not any time soon. Shame, 'cause that looks pretty funny.

Perfect. I'll marry them.
The shorts of the event were funnier and nearly Shoko-free.
I still can't download that thing. Can anyone mirror it on mega?
This looks like cancer. In more ways than one.
It's glorious. The best part was Akira in L-Elf's body.
Who is jacking Cain and Audrey?
Sounds fun, I wish I could watch it.
A-drei is the best girl.
This anime sucked, that's all there is too it. The ending, the pacing, the lame excuses for twists, irradic character focus, its like it tried to be bad or something
A-drei it was Kriemhild imagining things after she heard a rumor about his part time job/hobby.
I don't remember what was up with Cain.
So goddamn upset
I went for a walk afterwards and when I realized where I was I had walked 5 miles into another county
Where did you get it from? The links in the other thread don't work for me.
It's a skit about saying "blitzundegen", they're doing impressions (maid cafe blitzundegen, first confession blitzendegen, etc.).
Second volume of season II.
I guess I have to wait for reinforce.
Fujoshi screaming was like everywhere...
Live events usually have lots of screaming, anon.
and then all I can hear is girl-pitched voices
> I have nothing to do so I spend my life trolling instead.
That's way off.
>/a/ isnt a collective faggot
Who did you expect buys VVV?
I lost count of how many times Kaji apologized for killing Aina.
Why would he apologize? Aina is not a important character anyway.
He mentioned being of a fan of Aina.
And no one even cares about Shoko. ;_;
Why couldn't she have been raped instead.
Fuck you, piece of shit. Step on a lego and die in pain.
Because than the betrayal shit would have actually made a bit of sense. And we can't have sense in Valvrave.
Almost all of the cast who participated wanted Shoko to win
Because Saki needed it in order to become relevant for a short time.
That might have been better considering the two love each other while Saki is just a third wheel. If Shoko knew about the Kamitsuki thing, they couldn't have fucked her character up in S2.
Exactly, and it would have removed that unneeded suffering from Saki.
But noooo, they have to rape Saki because they wanted drama.
I'll believe you when I see it.
Yeah, but she still gets what a heroine should have got. Too bad for Shoko it doesn't seems she was consider relevant enough.
>If Shoko knew about the Kamitsuki thing, they couldn't have fucked her character up in S2.
That was kind of the whole point of all the drama. They wanted to prove Haruto is shit and everything he did was wrong.
We are all in agreement that the rape of Saki scene was bad for both her and Shoko.
Shoko was apparently relevant in their minds. The problem is they couldn't decide what to do with her, so they did nothing.
I hope you realize what you wrote is implying the staff is made up of people with serious brain problems. Not that I disagree, eh.
I don't think anyone can disagree. They dropped the ball hard with S2.
>Shoko was apparently relevant in their minds
Cool story bro. The things you make up because some irrelevant guy with no decision power said something about Shoko in a magazine.
I don't know if that's true but there are saying that Okouchi hates genki girls.
It is not trolling if it is true.
Honestly, I loved the lame twists. I thought the whole first season was fantastic. The second season still had some high points but it just kind of got mired in a swamp of shit towards the end, had a brief, shaking attempt at thrilling finale, and then the THATS IT? moment that basically shattered any good faith from the first season.
God, a single episode is all they'd have needed to decompress the ending enough to make it have just been an average, rather that infamously terrible, ending.
They say many things but they can't prove any of them. Butthurt waifufags hate Okouchi because he doesn't let they're waifus win.
Opinions are not truths, and neither are lazy copypasta
>Akira in L-Elf's body.
>The shorts of the event were funnier
Actually, I've decided to leave you be since you would feel really pathetic without trolling Valvrave. Shoko would have done the same.
I bet her hand is soft, warm, and sticky from jelly.
So...L-Elf can't scream?
What makes you say that? He screams in some episodes.
Oh boy Vuvuvu thread.
Well, he had troubles screaming 'Blitzendegen'
Which vulva would you rape?
>Posted over 372 times.
Who ever invests their free time into spamming a demotivational picture of all things here and /m/ truly is a fucking loser.
>calling someone a loser on /a/
Yeah! You tell him, bro!
You can't stop me.
You're right, there should be more people on 4chan that are annoying and autistic as him that spam the same image 372 times.
You are clearly mistaking me for someone else.
That is the wrong image, numbnuts.
What? He never screamed it.
Most of the threads he posted that image on /m/ got auto saged since people avoid annoying autist like a plague.
The chibi bonus
Can A-Drei scream?
You mean that thing no one watched because no one bothered to rip or mirror properly?
DOES THIS MEAN SHE EVENTUALLY GOT RAPE URGES TOO?
There is a rip and there is a way to download it, nobody will upload it if there is already a way to get it.
She does have to deal with Shoko's rape urges though. Not that she minds.
What? Heck no.
Only Vuvuvu 1 pilot got rape mode.
Only Unit 1 pilots will eventually have urges
Except no one watched it because those links don't work for most people.
What man, that's shit, dog.
Didn't even get to see her naples.
Whatever dude, someone watched it and is posting here, someone yesterday posted a way to get the stuff from the link, someone promised to upload his copy. You have a lot of options, stop projecting.
If you're having trouble, you might have luck if you use a DL manager like JDownloader. That's how I managed to get the download to finish for me. Unfortunately I can't even attempt to mirror it myself because it's 2GB and it takes me a half hour just to upload a manga chapter. BD anon also said they will rip it, though I'm not sure when they're expecting to receive it.
Yesterday other people complained about the links not working and some that watched it might have physical copies. I'm not projecting, I'm saying you can't expect people to know what you're talking about when there's no infallible way to watch it yet.
I tried downloading the files with two different managers but the files never extract properly even though the zips are complete (around 500mb each). Thanks either way, I'll sit and wait for another rip.
you didn't even pay attention
if no one else delivers I will when I get my BD
Is projecting a buzzword now?
I downloaded it directly via my Chrome browser, it took me a day due to crappy local network, however, but it worked.
>mirror properly 2GB of video
>Upload spead: 0.52 Mbps
You wont even want to wait for me.
>people complained about the links not working
That was me, or at least I was one of them.
>the files never extract properly even though the zips are complete
JDownloader also failed to extract it itself when I entered the password. You've probably already tried this, but I got the parts to extract without issue once I did it manually.
>you didn't even pay attention
What do you mean, Anon? We see her naples?
Manually was the first thing I tried and all I got were corrupted archive errors. I don't understand whoever split such a big file and uploaded it to such a slow site, they should have made a torrent instead.
You are projecting.
Reminder that Saki should have been a lesbian
No way, where'd you get that vibe?
She is a canon bi.
They're all lesbians in the future so it all works out.
Posting because chinks posted it few days ago, don't know what this is though.
She will be saved.

Yeah but being bi gave us >muh haruto
If only he had died in episode 13...
Shoko's chili oil is the only thing she lets near her butthole.
Or episode 2
He should have died in place of Shoko in episode 2 and actually stayed dead.
I bet it burns.
> Implying I won't disguise myself in full body chili oil and drive into her asshole

That sounds like a good way to get ink poisoning.
Ink poisoning is a thing? I used to eat ink all the time.
And now you're on /a/.
Don't eat ink, kids.
>Step on a lego
That was uncalled for.
My sides are on orbit.
Ono Daisuke is fucking awesome.
Yuuki Kaiji a shit.
Cain confirmed for pedo.
Haruto can't be a proper protagonist even in a stupid picture drama. What the hell where they thinking?
It was practically the same with the anthology. It's just more entertaining to play L-elf's autism for laughs.
And that's the problem. Haruto is not an entertaining character, whether it be in serious situations, comedic, or anything in between.
As we all know, the series would be so much better if Eruerufu was the real number 1 MC.
Did Haruto just rape her? Seriously, I think he just raped her.
But he was de facto the MC.
Could someone tell me why so many people hate the ending?
I like it more than the rest of the show.
Not the de jure one though.
It was underwhelming and we expected a better epilogue.
Because it wasn't necessarily what we wanted. All we got was 'Oh and they had a revolution and Magius was destroyed and then Satomi ojii-san got married and now here we are! By the way there are Flubber aliens and Shoko lives.'
Who the fuck was the prince?
It was a rushed clusterfuck that explained nothing and none of the scenes had impact.
>Who the fuck was the prince?
The child of Shoko and Akira.
Because there was no tweest after almost every episode had one.
The ending wasn't really a problem, the problem was last 1/4 of the anime that was full of retardness, very fine examples of bad writing and how not write a character.
L-Elf before he traveled back in time.
This could be similarly applied to the entire last quarter or so. It was like the writers realized they had too much on their plate to cover in the remaining 5 episodes or so and thus some character development went right out the window.
I remember Saki's arc got basically dropped wholesale.
How did they drop her arc?
I don't dislike it, the epilogue was just too short. Not the '200 years later' bit, that served its purpose, but the events after the the Cain battle.
Maybe because she spent over half the fucking season captured and when she finally there was nothing.
I believe there was a scene where she basically went "oh well I lost to Shoko now back to the plot." Considering her character was in large part built around this conflict, it made me wonder why they even had the love triangle to begin with. They hardly address it and it amounted to jack shit anyway. Even the wait... was that rape? didn't have a huge consequence, just Haruto felt bad for a couple scenes when he should have been unable to look her in the face for weeks or months. Things like that which made it seem like writers realized they didn't have enough episodes left to tell what they wanted to tell.
>"oh well I lost to Shoko now back to the plot."
You sure don't remember that scene well.
I hope the last drama CD can fix it somewhat.
Separated, not captured.
>didn't have a huge consequence, just Haruto felt bad for a couple scenes
He kept whining and being sad about it for the whole season, dude. People even complained because the drama from the rape was taking too much time.
>didn't have a huge consequence
Is this a joke? The rape is what made him take the MUH CURSE shit into overdrive and eventually die. Saki basically killed him by not stopping him.
>Saki basically killed him by not stopping him.
Is this a joke? Because it is not her fault if he was a complete retard.
Maybe, maybe not. As long as you get the larger point. For one of the main girls, even sixth ranger Akira contributed more than she did.
I just realized that Saki getting captured is a cruel ironic callback to her being a former idol because she's out in front of thousands of people again. That's pretty cool.
fifth ranger, whatever.
She got in a VVV to be the most famous person in the solar system and that's exactly what happened.
She wanted to be famous and became infamous.
>even sixth ranger Akira
Only very few people contributed as much as or more than Akira who was always a main girl and heroine.
I disagree completely. Akira "only" hacked, fixed her relationship with the brother and got a friend. As soon as she tried to do more (last episode) Haruto said her to go back to the kitchen.
And she didn't even got the chance to talk with Shoko for 12 episodes.
Saki on the other hand was able to talk with Haruto, fixed L-Elf's and A-Drei's relationship (I think she was literally used for this, and I am a bit disgusted by how cheap this kind of writing is, but she still did that), was the one who saw the moment the Empire was founded, was one of the two people to whom Haruto kept his promises etc.
Nobody did a lot because almost nothing happened during this season, they even forgot people like A-Drei were supposed to be super soldiers.
Saki was decently potrayed to be a sympathetic character with all the screentime she's gotten in S2. Her capture and subsequent missing was only for one episode, unlike someone who did not show up in 2/3 of S2.
Saki is one of the few characters that actually had proper development and treatment (along with L-Elf, Akira, and Q-Vier). If you want to complain about dropped character development you should be bringing up Haruto or Shoko.
Was Q-Vier ever supposed to be more than a loose cannon with weak critical thinking skills and a flare for theatrics?
Well, yes, she is cool.
>they even forgot people like A-Drei were supposed to be super soldiers
How did they forget?
His greatest accomplishment was killing an innocent soldier and a comrade. I mean, pretty disappointing, especially thinking the OP teased us with his Kirschbaums against Hito.
did you watch episode 23
Yes, 24 too.
I want to cum inside Kriem.
I want to touch A-drei's braid.
I want jingle Shoko's bells.
I want to brush Saki's hair.
I want to smell Akira's farts..
You don't sound very convinced of that.
I didn't notice the extra period until I posted.
>no exclamation mark
Yeah, not really convinced at all.
I want to share ham&eggs with L-Elf!
That is it!
If you were a shota, would you rather have Saki, Shoko or Akira prepare you for your wedding night? Keep in mind that the other two would keep each other company
Saki because she is cute and best girl.
Akira smells and Shoko would betray me.
Shoko wouldn't work because she's the bride and Akira is the bride's maid. So Saki by default.
I was really bored, so here's VVV Anthology chapter 14 scanlation.
I'll probably pick up the other chapters that haven't been done yet.
I want a cutting mat with Liz on it.
Also thanks a lot.
Thanks anon. I'd buy that mug.
I liked Haruto, but I would have added a scene in 23 of him accepting being a Kamitski and telling the others its okay to feed but just ask first.
Fuck dog, I kinda expected Lele to stick around for a bit, she seemed pretty cool, too.
So, when they feed, do they take others memory, too? I kinda thought it was just, like, a vampiric thing, where they take runes but there are really no adverse effects, as long as they don't take too much. Correct me if I'm wrong, here,
Chihaya x Haruka OTP
>Mitsuki x Haruka OTP
Satomi's ＤＥＥＰ ♂ ＤＡＲＫ ♂ ＦＡＮＴＡＳＹ come truth?
Anon we already knew he was pedo. He probably fapped to this.
Episode 12 probably. She rejected him because she knew he loves Shoko. It's in all the interviews and implicit in her words: Go Save Shoko. Shipperfags and tryhard Sakifags tried to deny it.
Haruto was fine until that happened. Saki's attempt to 'help' him only made things worse.
So Unit 1 was the only one that made you Rapemaster? Shouldn't Maria have gone RapeRapeLoveURape at some point, too, then?
Yeah, because it was totally Saki the one who made him go complete suicidal, not L-Elf and his drama about his autism and inability to ask for help.
no because Haruto stopped feeding on others after Marie's death
before Haruto became a pilot there was no need for runes
The VVVs weren't using any runes from the time she had her memories wiped to the first episode
Fuck, there goes my fantasy.
L-Elf was the only reason why Haruto fed at all. It WAS Saki who made him go suicidal because he returned to MUH CURSE drama after Saki surrounded to him.
He was making progress thanks to Aina.
L-Elf offered a rotation VVV system and Haruto refused because muh curse muh burden which all boils down to Saki's dumb choice.
Of course he gets the best of both worlds: Akira and L-elf's body.
Those look so cute.
I want to cum all over L-elf's ahoge.
>Audrey will never be your maid
What's the point of even living?
VVV Anthology chapter 12 scanlation. This was a fun chapter.
The best of both worlds is Akira in Akira's body.
Holy crap, anon! You're on a roll! Thanks!
They take others memories. That is what is being eaten by the Valvrave when they feed. If they don't feed then the Valvrave slowly starts to eat Hito's pilot.
He was highly entertaining in the jacking drama CD.
He is a good character, but the writers decided to focus not on Haruto the character but Haruto the world's punching bag.
>Haruto the world's punching bag.
Good stress relief.
That Y.Aoi sure enjoyed it.
But this way, Satomi relieves his lust for both Akira and L-elf at the same time.
>It WAS Saki who made him go suicidal
Confirmed for not watching the anime. Haruto goes suicidal after L-Elf complains because he can't use the power of Valvrave on his own and has to rely on Haruto.
He was suicidal even in episode 13. L-Elf is what made him snap out of for a few episodes before going right back to his old ways.
Yes, and in the same episode 13 he picked up the right choice thanks to L-Elf: feeding on someone. Then the whole L-Elf's drama made him go suicidal for good in episode 17, Saki was not there and he was only shocked by L-Elf's words.
Obviously nobody thinks to blame L-Elf, because it is only Haruto's fault for being autistic, but if you want to blame Saki then you must blame L-Elf and Shoko too. They didn't not helped him staying alive at all and L-Elf was *explicitly* the cause of Haruto's death because he himself said he would have used Haruto until he runs out of Runes, feeding or not.
He was already suicidal thanks to Saki's shitty actions. L-Elf made him snap out momentarily with his crafty manipulation.
Yep, sure, in fact he wasn't feeding on L-Elf before episode 17. Riiiiiiiiiight.
Keep believing, anon.
L-Elf and Saki I can understand (even if it's stupid to blame anyone for Haruto's idiocy), but how is it Shoko's fault at all?
Because he didn't want to hurt her in the first place.
But again, it is retarded to blame them, because you can't blame someone for Haruto's stupidity, but if you want to blame one, then the other two are to blame too, unless the opinion is biased as fuck (which seems to be the case of some anons).
Chinese scans of last chapter of A-Drei manga are available.
Nice. Didn't know that. I liked some of the additions it added like L-elf and A-drei keeping the earrings + X-eins seeing H-neun one last time.
What is the format of the password? yyy/mm/dd? I keep getting errors every combination I try.
I just followed the baidu link, since it was the easiest.
Ah, ok. Thanks anyway.
I guess Saki manga will have the usual number of pages. This chapter of A-Drei manga doesn't seem to add a lot to the events of the anime. Felt rushed as fuck, especially the part were he speaks with Saki.
Not even A-Drei manga fixed this mess, now I will wait for Saki manga to deliver.
>waiting for Saki manga spoilers
This is looking good.
A-drei speaking with Saki was covered in her manga last month and we watched the flashback in the anime, I don't know why you expected to see more of it.
Because it should have been a major point for the development of both the characters, not just Saki. Other than that the chapter was disappointing because they expanded just the epilogue.
It was a major point for A-drei but they spent 7 chapters showing how he had second doubts about L-elf, they don't need to dedicate 10 pages to his inner conflict. Knowing why L-elf shot him only confirms his doubts and then he speaks with X-eins, there's probably more of his thoughts between those pages but most of it was covered in previous chapters. Saki is the one that needs more introspection given the circumstances.
Honesty I have no clue what you were expecting.
>Honesty I have no clue what you were expecting.
Something more of what they show in the anime, that was just what happened in the anime, which is not what they are rightly doing in Saki manga. I'm not interested in a manga which is just a summary of the events from a character's POV.
They should have just dropped X-Eins and focused more on A-Drei honestly.
Something is wrong with these pics.
They always advertised this manga as the anime from A-drei's POV so I don't know what you're complaining about. I don't dislike Saki's manga creativity but it changes and adds many elements not present in the anime, you can't blame whoever worked in A-drei's manga for not focusing on something the other artist thought was relevant for Saki. The Saki manga exclusive scene only added more to Saki's own resolve and not A-drei, in the anime it was obvious A-drei would do something even if Saki didn't motivate him. It was always about Saki realizing something and they used A-drei to do that in her manga, not the other way around. In the anime they made it clear that Saki's role was to prove A-drei L-elf didn't shoot him, they never focused or hinted Saki might have motivated him in any way.
Also, they dedicated an entire chapter to H-neun and X-eins so it would be cheap having him die outside of a page without addressing it.
>It was always about Saki realizing something
It wasn't. It was also about A-Drei realizing something related to L-Elf thanks to what she said. The difference is Saki manga expanded it, even if there was no need, because what she realized during that scene was something she already knew - why bothering helping Akira? Why bothering putting herself at risk for L-Elf's plans? There was no need for it if her mentality was the same of episode 10 or 13 - A-Drei manga didn't even if it was an important point.
My complain is that, I don't need a manga from just his POV because that is using the same scenes from the anime without putting any effort on it. It is cheap and makes part of his manga useless, even if they advertized always as it; and really, who cares of how they advertise something, is that a way to justify all the crap they pull from Valvrave? If I don't like something, I complain, advertized or not.
And you know that is not just a manga from his POV, because they expanded other points of the story, like his past.
So, yeah, just expanding the epilogue is cheap and not interesting.
>they dedicated an entire chapter to H-neun and X-eins so it would be cheap having him die outside of a page without addressing it.
And I still find it a waste of pages, X-Eins character went nowhere and was killed in one of the shittiest ways. His death makes Mr. Bushido's look like gold.
I still think you're wrong and that scene didn't contribute anything to A-drei's character. In fact, in contradicts what we know about him for the sake of Saki's introspection.
But I'll respect your opinion and leave it at that. It's clear you're complaining for the sake of complaining because they didn't give Saki any pages in A-drei's manga.
About X-eins and H-neun, maybe they had extra pages and decided to give them some time. They were all part of A-drei's past and played an important role in helping him start his revolution after all.
Thought the chapter was great. It focused on what mattered of the manga: The Stigma of Betrayal which was slowly worked as theme in the Perfection Army. The last page is perfection.
>In fact, in contradicts what we know about him for the sake of Saki's introspection.
Yeah, because it was not like A-Drei was obsessed over being betrayed by L-Elf even in the first season, it is not like he went along with Cain's and Dorssia methods even if disgusted by them and realized in that moment he was wrong and L-Elf didn't betray him. They sure made him act that way because they needed to give Saki her screentime.
> It's clear you're complaining for the sake of complaining because they didn't give Saki any pages in A-drei's manga.
I couldn't care less, I know A-Drei is more popular and she doesn't print money as character, I don't even like the way that artist draws her, so I have literally no problem with that. It looks like you have no argument and are trying to justify a poor choice for the sake of it.
>They were all part of A-drei's past
And this was something never addressed properly. There was always L-Elf in A-Drei's past, X-Eins and H-Neun had their past, but they never bother to show more about the group.
They failed at depicting the Perfection Army as a group in the same way the failed at depicting the Valvrave team as a team.
>In fact, in contradicts what we know about him for the sake of Saki's introspection.
>especially the part were he speaks with Saki
They kept it short because the relevant aspect is A-drei finally getting confirmation that L-elf didn't betray him. Saki's manga adds the part where she tells him about not giving up and trying even when it seems it'll be in vain because it was relevant to her story and her relationship with Haruto. But in the anime, A-drei resigned himself to punishment; he only pursued L-elf because of the information he learned from X-eins that put him back into action. He only got lucky because X-eins was already gung-ho about turning against Cain when he discovered his treason.
Again, it is not only that single scene, it is the chapter which felt unsatisfying. They added almost nothing to his reunion with L-Elf or to the scene where X-Eins brings the earrings. I was expecting a little more effort from a manga that added two whole chapters about the past of three members of the Perfection Army.
This chapter tries to summarize something like half season and it feels rushed, when they spent so much on other less relevant events.
Unless you read chinese I'd say it's too early to know what it did or didn't add don't you think? You're bitter about the series ending, we get it. If you hate it so much just let it go and move on instead of wasting your time reading manga you don't like.
>This chapter tries to summarize something like half season
Please, it's two episodes. Inb4 just like the anime did, shit writing, focusing in the wrong characters, etc.
I pretty much knew what to expect once I learned it would be the final chapter. I knew they'd have to somehow manage to cover all those events, so my main concern was that they would have enough pages left for the epilogue. I think they did a reasonable job working within the constraints put upon them. Unfortunately it's just another case of not enough chapters/episodes to expand on all the scenes. It's a shame the manga couldn't be long enough to cover S2 in more detail, because I had hoped for more Karlstein flashbacks and a backstory for Q-vier.
I apologize for being late, again.
Tell me if you spot any mistakes I missed.
Goodnight VVV thread.
>manga you don't like
And from what do you get this? I even bought the first volume because I liked it.
>Please, it's two episodes
Sure, pic related was episode 22.
Same here, but with 50 pages I was hoping for more. At this point there was no purpose for X-Eins' and H-Neun's flashback, they should have used that chapter to cover the events of the anime.
I understand they have to sell at least one copy of the 6th BD with the drama CD, but that is just a cheap way to write a spin-off.
One is a story that only has to worry about one character and her direct interactions with other characters.
The other story has one character in the lead role but has to develop the ones around him because it was never addressed in the anime.
That's a fair comparison no doubt.
Are you doing this on purpose or are you seriously saying the 1 minute scene counts as an entire episode? The scenes it covers all fit in two episodes max from A-drei's POV.
>The other story has one character in the lead role but has to develop the ones around him because it was never addressed in the anime.
>F-6 events are drama CD only
Yes, thanks for agreeing.
I could ask you the same thing. Are you doing it on purpose or am I talking to a wall?
The manga expanded with pages and pages scenes which had less than 10 seconds in the anime, so yeah, they summarized 1/3 of a season in a chapter and I am disappointed given how other parts were better expanded and used.
>manga has to address points not addressed in the anime
>leaves one of the most important ones for the group to a drama CD
>At this point there was no purpose for X-Eins' and H-Neun's flashback, they should have used that chapter to cover the events of the anime
I disagree. What I like most about the manga is the backstory and all-new scenes it included. If I have to choose one or the other, I would choose that over scrapping X-eins and H-neun's backstory just to cover scenes from the anime with an extra couple lines of new dialogue. Weren't you just complaining about not wanting the spin-off to merely summarize the anime?
I'm saying the episodes in total were about two not half a season for A-drei. You're getting too worked up about this.
>short and epic greentext
>not whatever I want it to be
He's complaining because he's frustrated about the ending and expected something miraculous would happen in this chapter. I bet he wouldn't complain about Saki's manga if they didn't add any new scene and followed the anime.
>Weren't you just complaining about not wanting the spin-off to merely summarize the anime?
Yes, it did a good job on that, but if leaving two characters like H-Neun and X-Eins without background can help trying to fix the last half of the show giving a better insight on a more relevant character, then yes, I would scrap the flashback without thinking to much about it.
Q-Vier didn't get a flashback or a background story, but this doesn't really affect his character.
The problem, not only in the anime, is that they are trying (failing) to give a background and a certain characterization to every character, but that is not what they should have done, because some character need more than others.
Then I don't get your point then. x episodes are x episodes.
>I bet he wouldn't complain about Saki's manga if they didn't add any new scene and followed the anime.
Something miraculous did happen.
A-drei mentioned it, we got an episode dedicated to the KILL KILL KILL consequences, we already know what happened, no need to waste more ink with it. I don't mind if they left their dialogues to be covered in a drama.
>trying to fix the last half of the show
It doesn't need to be fixed for me, I like the ending just the way it is. What other character are you talking about? The royalist? He's not that important, at least not more than X-eins or H-neun. I'd be pissed if they didn't show their past in exchange for giving personality to one guy that's mentioned once in the whole show.
>drama CD length: 1 episode
Who are you quoting?
>fix the last half of the show
Not that I think it needed "fixed" aside from needing more episodes, but what could they possibly fix about the main story in a spin-off that revolves around A-drei?
>What other character are you talking about?
H-Neun, X-Eins, Q-Vier, Satomi, Marie, Pino/Prue and in part Yamada too.
There were too many characters for a two cour show and for a two cour show made in the way the wanted to made it. The focus and attention some characters got is not proportioned with their relevance, their roles etc. They tried to give something a main supporter character should have to characters who didn't need it to be likeable, forgetting of characters like Shoko and Lieselotte, who had way more weight in the plot.
And they showed to not know how to use spin-offs properly too, because we got a chapter which is the 1:1 version of episode 1 and adds nothing to VVV (why not using that for X-Eins and H-Neun and giving A-Drei his own manga like Saki?) and a spin-off (Undertaker) which explains nothing to plot and almost rectons the events of the anime.
The only thing that looked used in the right way was the novel, but it got shortened too.
If they gave F-zack a backstory chapter you'd complain because they didn't give X-eins and H-neun one and you wouldn't know they were childhood friends. You'd say there was no reason for X-eins to kill himself just to get revenge because they weren't that close, the earrings would be meaningless and they should just erase those characters and have A-drei do everything by himself.
But whatever, keep complaining just because. At least complain about something that could be interesting to read, like A-drei's feelings on Lieselotte's death or something. We already know F-zack was their friend who died for their sins. The only interesting thing they could add would be their lives over there when they were all in the same group, not that character in particular.
SUZU GA NARU
For a moment I thought you wanted Yamada to be important in A-drei's manga. Nevermind that, I misread your post.
>but what could they possibly fix about the main story in a spin-off that revolves around A-drei?
It is not my work to write their story. They are payed for doing this. I certainly would have liked to see a group of super agents doing things super agents usually do, in the same way I would have liked to see a group of pilots acting like a group and not just paired for plot convenience.
What does F have to do with my post?
>But whatever, keep complaining just because.
But whatever, keep defending choices someone dislikes just because.
It is easy to answer this way without argumentation to your points, isn't it?
And really, stop assuming, because you look ridiculous.
Sorry, I was talking of Valvrave in general
> not only in the anime
not of A-Drei's manga. My bad, I should have made it clearer.
>I certainly would have liked to see a group of super agents doing things super agents usually do
Then you should be reading James Bond, not Stigma of Betrayal.
>What does F have to do with my post?
>If I have to choose one or the other, I would choose that over scrapping X-eins and H-neun's backstory just to cover scenes from the anime with an extra couple lines of new dialogue.
>if leaving two characters like H-Neun and X-Eins without background can help trying to fix the last half of the show giving a better insight on a more relevant character, then yes
>giving a better insight on a more relevant character
What other relevant character from Dorssia needs insight? Q-vier?
I was talking of A-Drei, you sure can follow a chain of replies.
And what makes you think I care of F or he was more relevant than H-Neun for me?
Because I thought you were >>100900861
>episode: laughs like a maniac and keeps his disgust to himself
>saki spinoff: whines like a little girl and needs to be called to reason by an enemy prisoner
If anything I'm glad this wasn't allowed in A-drei's manga.
Then your issue is with the story of the anime, not the spin-off manga for not retconning the events of the anime. A-drei spent most of the show on the field like a soldier should, H-neun did his spy stuff before getting killed, Q-vier we got to see show off some knife fighting skills against another super agent, and while X-eins didn't do much during the series he at least took part in a coup. But unfortunately Hitler Youth were simply not relevant enough to get the chance to do more super agent things. If the manga were longer there could have been the opportunity to include more flashbacks, of group missions and such, but in the end the storyline would still be following the anime.
A-Drei isn't reasonable when L-Elf is involved.
He was talking like a little girl in the anime too.
There's being unreasonable and there's being out of character.
>A-drei spent most of the show on the field like a soldier should
Riding a bike and a horse is not being a super agent, come on.
When? Not when he found the truth.
That was the only thing he said, then he laughed and went quiet.
No, the scene changed to Haruto on the Moon.
And neither is saving Saki from her certain death, countering L-elf's ideas or the knife stunts at the end, right? If you wanted more action it would cost another character screen time. Why waste even more time with useless shit?
Should he have been scouting the area in a tank or a prototype super weapon instead?
But that was a hobby he was doing on his off time.
Are you denying he laughed and then went quiet?
ITT thinly veiled thread derail by mad avatar Sakifag who hates L-Elf
No problem killing a character screentime, we got tons of useless characters. Not showing the main heroine and Lieselotte foe a season was not a problem, why should killing Yamada's or Inuzuka's screentime be a problem?
The anime starts with almost a monster of the week pattern, with battles and crazy stunts. At the end there was almost nothing of what the anime was.
Consistency in a story is a good thing, I think they teach it in the University.
He sobbed his heart out to Saki offscreen and she gave him a sunshine pep talk like in her manga. Except it didn't work too well because he decided to stay behind to die.
Are you denying the scene changed and you don't have a proof of what happened in the meanwhile?
>scrap Jewbro and Thunder's screentime so that Audrey does more agent things
>blaming Japan's universities for VVV S2
>being this mad
I want to touch A-drei's super agent braid.
A-drei stayed behind and X-eins was the one who convinced him to act. It's not proof but it's better than a manga-only scene from a manga known to have a questionable canon that didn't make it to the other counterpart's own manga.
Yeah, I know, I have high standards.
He doesn't want you to touch it.
I am missing the part where Saki's comment forces A-Drei to act. You know, he could always choose to stay behind to be punished even after her words.
But whatever. I am glad the staff knows its priorities, they changed Shoko's character because the drama was more important, "changing" A-Drei's only shows one thing.
I'll pay L-elf in jelly bars to assist me in the task of indirect braid touching.
You can't deny it's questionable and you can't blame someone if he chooses to ignore it when in doubt. I ignore most character development in this manga because it's out of character to me. Stuff like Saki being there when Haruto and L-elf made the pact don't bother me but A-drei's reaction in here does.
Aina, Akira, a bit of Haruto, nobody was out of character.
Shoko was more in character in the manga than the whole second season.
You haven't seen the scene were A-Drei takes the handcuffs off from Saki in the anime, you are just assuming what happened.
Saki's words leads A-Drei to tell her what is happening, which is something we were missing in the anime, not to him deciding to act. If in next chapter you will see A-Drei escorting Saki then you will have a reason to complain, but so far you are judging an event based on you head-canon story.
Different character presentation/interpretation doesn't make it out of character, since it fits with the manga's own context
How is it out of character? Because he acts in a way you don't like?
I agree it fits the manga's context but not the anime context.
>Shoko was more in character in the manga than the whole second season
In your interpretation.
I'm judging the event based on my own interpretation of what I've seen. I haven't seen that happen in the anime so I'm not going to assume it did. Some things happened in the manga that didn't happen in the anime so it's normal if not everyone takes them at face value.
For what it's worth, I don't take A-drei and L-elf talking about the revolution in that manga seriously. In the anime that's not how it happened so I assume it's a different event interpretation.
Different mangas of the same story are interesting because they provide different angles, but I always take the original one as the source material and everything else as other ways it could have been done.
But you haven't seen the anime context, because that scene was cut in the anime.
> I don't take A-drei and L-elf talking about the revolution in that manga seriously. In the anime that's not how it happened so I assume it's a different event interpretation.
Uh, which one?
More the reason to have doubts.
It's when they're in a cave, I forgot which chapter exactly.
I don't remember the two of them talking of that scene in the anime, it is only in the manga as far as I remember and it doesn't contradict the one shown later in the anime - well, except the way L-Elf reacts, but it is not like they cared too much to explain why he stopped laughing.
They show the laughing scene in the manga too.
If I remember well, in that manga the context is different, it's A-drei realizing something from L-elf's words and making the reveal. I think it's something L-elf says about Liselotte. In the anime, A-drei is talking to himself and reveals it because L-elf misunderstood him. I think it's supposed to be the same scene, A-drei talks of it as it's the first time in both, and L-elf reacts as if he didn't know. Yes, it's not a big contradiction but it's different. I'm not saying I don't like both, in fact I love different interpretations. But I consider one more canon than the other when discussing, if that makes any sense.
I didn't notice that. Maybe it's another scene with him laughing? The blood is lacking, too.
In the manga L-Elf asks of Lieselotte after hearing A-Drei's words, but that flashback was never shown in the anime.
I think after they talk about Liselotte, L-elf says something that makes A-drei tell him about the revolution.
I found it, chapter 3. A-drei is impressed with L-elf and that's when he decides to reveal it.
Wouldn't put it past the cave scene was suppose to be in the anime but was cut because of time restraints. The manga covered this scene that was never explained in the anime as well.
Well, but that is something L-Elf knew in the anime too, even in the first drama CD A-Drei talks of it and L-Elf is not surprised.
I think that drama is after both events, so he should know about the revolution by then. In the anime and manga flashbacks I don't think he did. It's hard to tell in the manga, but in the anime he looked surprised, so much he laughed.
The page you posted is before the events of the anime and of the drama CD, but I don't remember L-Elf being surprised by it in the anime.
In the anime he laughs because the staff forgot something on the road, but as I see it it was because he never told A-Drei his own goal.
I thought he laughed because he was surprised at the coincidence, he should be more composed if he already knew.
Character consistency was never something optioned during the production phase.
It's consistent to me, I think he didn't know.
He knew what A-Drei wanted becuase they shown this frame too >>100908592
What does it have to do with a different flashback? You lost me.
Because L-Elf in that point already knew A-Drei was part of the royal family and was not surprised.
It's a different flashback. How do you know if the one where he laughs in the anime is set before or after it?
By their ranks, this >>100908592 should happen before this >>100907438 if I remember right their ranks.
The rest of the team already knew that as well. It wasn't a secret only L-elf became aware of.
Yes, but we know how L-Elf was aware of it from the manga.
And, while the others might have recognized A-Drei's status by his hair, given their Dorssian origins, we have no other hint on how L-Elf could know that if not talking directly with A-Drei.
I see. But I still believe he didn't know about the revolution in the anime and he only asked about A-drei being a royal in the manga. Everyone knew A-drei was a royal, it's not a secret. L-elf didn't ask him about it in the laughing scene, so both scenes can still happen in the right order.
Anime - they point the gun at each other, L-elf laughs when he learns about A-drei's revolution
Manga - L-elf starts a casual conversation about A-drei being a royal, learns about A-drei's revolution, they point the gun at each other
Both make sense in their context.
But even the manga has the same scene from the anime, if there was a contradiction the last flashback would not have been included in the manga too.
It could be a different scene, notice there is no blood.
There is the blood.
I'm thinking they're just two seperate scenes. The cave scene is before L-Elf tried to rescue Lieselotte which you can tell by his rank, he probably had no plans of revolution given he just planned to run away with her. The second conversation is probably from after his failed attempt and he had moved on to his revolution plan, hence why he laughed at them planning the same thing.
That is what I have been saying for like a hour ;_;
Well, I didn't see that chapter yet. I'll wait for a translation before taking conclusions then.
I was talking about >>100907438 and I found this gif, the rank is different. Not the same as that page.
It has been corrected as you can see here >>100912159
I agree that there were quite a few problems with this anime, but what do people have against the ending? It was a bit predictable, but I thought it was a great ending for the series.
Probably just an artist error.
They always make sure the details are right. The blood is missing, the rank is gone, that page is another scene.
>They always make sure the details are right.
They don't. Otherwise you wouldn't have Nanami with Shoko's eyes.
I give, this makes sense. The translation of the new manga scene >>100912159 will make it clearer, probably.
Sometimes magazine scans differ from tankoubon scans because the artist's have to meet deadlines during serializations.
It was rushed garbage that offered no closure to anything outside the poorly built up Haruto/L-Elf 'friendship'.
They had high expectations for this series but it kept getting worse and worse. Not for me.
This. Every single word.
The finale should have spanned two episodes instead of one in my opinion.
Tried too much to be a fujo ending forcing a stupid friendship which was probably one of the worst written parts of the show.
Saki had closure. She was jealous and selfish.
>willing to hurt herself for Haruto
>cooperated with L-Elf
>saved ungrateful students
Truly a bitch.
Such a bitch
Bad example. That was simply her way of repaying Shoko for the previous episode. Notice how afterward she's never nice to her again and actually tries to sabotage her and Haruto's relationship (not that they needed her help for that).
Anon didn't call her a bitch. And you missed the part where she admitted to feeling glad Haruto was losing his memories because she was hoping it would give her a better chance with him even though she knew he loved Shoko.
She repaid her by cooking with her and letting Shoko shove her stew down her throat. Defending against L-Elf is different.
She played quite fair considering she had the chance to marry Haruto and refused it.
And you missed the part were she calls herself a bad person for that. Geez, I wonder what that line meant.
And that makes her a better person than the hero and main heroine of the story.
>Geez, I wonder what that line meant.
She realizes she's a jealous and selfish person.
You seem to think character flaws are automatically a bad thing.
I really wonder what that line meant. Oh, maybe she felt bad for thinking that.
>She realizes she's a jealous and selfish person.
She realizes it and feels bad about it.
Is this your first anime or what?
>willing to hurt herself for Haruto
Ironincally that did the most damage to Haruto and set him on the path to self destruction.
Saki is truly selfish. People didn't give her a hard time for saying that line since she was echoing their hatred of Shoko at the time. But the truth still stays that Saki never stops being selfish and jealous of Shoko. This is part of who she is as a flawed character just like everyone else in Valvrave.
What's so complicated about this to you?
She was voicing her honest feelings but felt bad about her own selfishness, which is why she called herself a bad person. Her selfishness is a character flaw; that doesn't mean it's a bad thing or that it makes her a bad character.
Better written, sure.
That line here is screaming "look, she feels bad, she is not actually selfish", it is just poor writing you can find in other anime too.
Shoko is hated because she caused more or less Inuzuka's death and did nothing else but crying. I mean, I loved her, but the staff made it almost impossible to root or feel sympathetic for her at the end.
>she was echoing their hatred of Shoko at the time
Being aware of and admitting to your flaws doesn't make those flaws disappear. Nor was that the point of the scene.
Sure, your point is valid if the anime was not biased. Did people think L-Elf's weak because he admits it two times in the anime? Did people think L-Elf is stupid because he loved Lieselotte? No, but he himself said he was weak and stupid. Same for Saki.
If they wanted us to think she was not selfish they wouldn't have included those thoughts at all. They would have replaced it with her wishing everything to work out between Haruto and Shoko because it's what Haruto wants, even though she's opposed to it.
She's always been jealous, petty, and selfish when it comes to Shoko. This really isn't hard to understand.
Other people's idiocy does not justify your own.
I kept hoping that they didn't turn Shoko character into shit. Their treatment of Shoko made me feel so disgust that I abandoned VVV threads for a week. I felt tired from defending mindless rages and witch hunt thrown at Shoko. At least the hangover threads are filled with reasonable people again.
I was taking about the viewers' hatred of Shoko. Saki's line played on that.
Deep down, Saki is always jealous of Shoko, even though she might not really hate Shoko.
>the staff made it almost impossible to root or feel sympathetic for her at the end
Only if you deluded yourself the whole time about Shoko. I was mad at her for a while because of her choices, not because she was a poorly written character. Her choices were consistent with her character.
I'm so tired of writing this, I should make a copypasta.
>People didn't give her a hard time for saying that line since
Why would people have an issue with that scene anyway? It didn't introduce a side to Saki that we weren't already aware of.
>her wishing everything to work out between Haruto and Shoko because it's what Haruto wants
No, at all, this would go against the "promise" and would not follow what Haruto wanted for Saki.
Except the anime made L-Elf look like a weak or stupid person less times than he looked like awesome. Maybe a bit autistic, but still awesome and strong.
Same for Saki, she was a nice person most of the time. Aina said that too and clearly the staff tried to shove that side of her even more.
Hey I remember you as well. Maybe I should pasta my response to yours. I'm about to get off.
>I'm about to get off.
>Her choices were consistent with her character.
>S1 Shoko is always an active character, takes decisions, positions, helps the other
>S2 1st half Shoko is absent
>S2 2nd half Shoko is crying for most of the time
That is really consistent writing... well, when they remember to write her character.
People do think L-elf was weak and stupid so I don't see what that comparison has to do with anything. Unless you're the guy who hates L-elf and likes Saki.
Other people's idiocy does not justify your own.
>Her choices were consistent with her character.
They really weren't.
Shoko knew ARUS couldn't be trusted and had a history of not keeping their word. She trusted them and was surprised they didn't keep their word.
Shoko was shown to take action and help others as much she could, even if she was suffering even greater. She did nothing in the last 4 episodes and 2 useless characters had to do what she should have done.
Certain events broke her.
>and likes Saki
I would hope not, since they're vehemently denying a core aspect of her character.
That's an epic reply mate, but it's my first reply in the topic.
No, that scene is revealing because we thought Saki's character development has helped her get off from her pettiness nature. This is a character regression from the point of view of people who had began thinking Saki can do no wrong.
They wouldn't be the first case, the threads are plenty of Shokofags and Q-Vierfags denying the truth.
>Shoko was shown to take action and help others as much she could
And that's what she was trying in this scene.
But she did nothing wrong.
In fact you are not supposed to think she is selfish, since she is able to admit it.
In the same way you are not supposed to find L-Elf weak and stupid. Or even blame Shoko for her stupid actions.
And again, it is just poor written, it is not a real regression.
I really need some pasta.
Shoko's only problem with ARUS was Moses which was swept under the rug by the prez, he said they had no idea what he was doing. Sure, they sort of killed half of the Module later, but they offered her a deal that would (supposedly) save everyone still alive. She was serious about her PM role and did what she thought she should. The rest of the students were paranoid about bakemono, she gives in easily under peer pressure and she was out of time, that deal was the only option she had in her head.
Shoko took action under different circumstances. She was under a lot of pressure and lost the only person she could rely on when everyone else was against her (Haruto), so her reaction is comparable to when her father was killed. She sit and waited for something to happen.
It's her fault episode 21 happened.
>falling in love with the imitation instead of the original
The biggest tragedy of the entire show
This is what I call denial.
Saki is selfish, L-elf is pathetic and Shoko is dumb. Deal with it. If you like any of those characters you have to accept their flaws as well.
>In fact you are not supposed to think she is selfish, since she is able to admit it.
I think you're the only one who misinterpreted that scene that way.
>Shoko's only problem with ARUS was Moses
Are you talking about Shoko?
Sorry, you'll have to do better than using that manga.
That was one week after they reached the Moon.
They gained her trust later.
Of course, Haruto admits that he just wants to be nice like Shoko
Here she was sure happy to trust adults.
Did we watch the same show? After her father was killed she jumped at the chance to help Akira even though she was still emotionally destroyed over it. There was no sitting and waiting for something to happen.
>she gives in easily under peer pressure
I hope you're not talking about her running in the election again. Because that's still wrong.
And they blew that trust the second they started committing unconditional genocide. Shoko had zero reason to trust them over Haruto other than the plot requiring it.
The point of her character was to learn to "never give up" and "do something not expecting something else in return". And she did learn it.
It is your fault and your misinterpretation of her development, not a regression.
Reminder that Shoko had post-concussion syndrome that didn't get better until she became a kamitsuki.
That trust was based on their dependency on them.
The "unconditional genocide" did not change that.
Haruto did not have a plan how they should survive the crisis.
Yes she was, she felt impotent because they couldn't do anything by themselves.
I'm sure we watched the same show, after Shoko cried over Haruto she got back up and helped her friends. But she didn't do anything while shit was hitting the fan, just like with her father. She did afterwards so that his sacrifice would not be in vain.
The election is one of them, selling Haruto is another one.
They offered truce, Haruto offered the last straw. She felt betrayed and didn't feel she could trust him. This isn't hard to understand.
>after Shoko cried over Haruto she got back up and helped her friends
Yeah, too bad there was something to do before Haruto died, like maybe telling the truth she casually knew to the rest of the students. But wait, maybe Nanami and Midori were more relevant and useful than Shoko after all.
Shoko helped Akira because Akira was in danger and Satomi asked for help, her father had nothing to do with it.
You are clearly trying to defend a poor choice made for the sake of causing drama and avoid writing a character.
>She felt betrayed and didn't feel she could trust him.
But she could trust the guys killing all of her friends instead?
They offered her a future, Haruto didn't.
Of course, after all they murdered someone who tried to defend the pilots and recklessly ordered the soldiers to shoot first and ask questions never.
Truth? What truth do you think she knew? She knew Haruto became a bakemono because of her, she didn't know how any of it worked, why people were dying inside the Phantom, how they didn't die or any of it. All she knew was that he became inhuman because of her, nothing more. How could that help her case? How could that make Iori less angry if she still thought Haruto killed her father? Shoko was too emotionally shook up after she realized she was the originator of whatever was happening to Haruto, it had to be someone who wasn't as emotionally involved in all of it like she was to make the right call. That's usually how it works during stressful situations.
>Shoko helped Akira because Akira was in danger and Satomi asked for help
You're ignoring everything that happened before that. She was crying and sitting on her despair until Haruto called and L-elf said it would be a waste if she didn't do anything. Then Satomi called her (remember she thought it was Haruto at first) and asked for help, but she didn't say much. Akira started talking about giving up, one thing led to another and the whole situation ended in helping her because she didn't want to lose anyone else. Would she have done that if L-elf didn't tell her anything? Would she do it if Akira wasn't giving up on living and talked back to Satomi? Honestly I think she would continue crying in that chair.
They wrote a character between the lines. The entire show has always been like that.
Pretty much. She could and would trust them to stop shooting if they surrendered and did all they were told. Didn't you see how shocked Shoko and Iori were when they realized they were tricked?
She knew the reason Haruto became a kamitsuki, she could tell the others why the pilots became pilots: defending them. Inuzuka made it clear, Pino gave her the proof. And she still refused to do it.
She told shit of what she knew and she had to wait for Nanami and Midori to point out the obvious and something that was her duty to make public.
Shoko showed she was able to take the right decision even under stress and pressure. Akira was disappointed by that too.
>You're ignoring everything that happened before that.
Just like you are ignoring Shoko was in the same situation when she discovered the truth about Haruto. Pino told her everything - still laughing my ass off for how badly written that scene was - and she wasted Haruto's sacrifice, because she literally shitted on his sacrifice not defending him and the pilots.
>They wrote a character between the lines. The entire show has always been like that.
You denial is strong, she was just a victim of the incompetence of the gang Aniplex+Sunrise. Shoko was the only character written this way and that is not writing a character between the lines, that is just absence of character development - something they promised before the anime started - and having a cheap source of useless drama and .
I always wondered why the picture in the episode chart said "Lesbian attention whore" and then I realized it's because she named her VVV Carmilla, not to mention how she looked at Shoko.
Honestly I would have preferred it if that's what they had gone with.
Me, because femElf would be worse and fall in love with Haruto.
Naming her Valvrave Carmilla pretty much told us about her relationship with Haruto. She could never have him and everything she did to try to comfort him would end up hurting him.
Sakifag in charge of reading comprehension.
Would have been more interesting with Haruto and Saki competing for Shoko and would have sped up Haruto's development a bit faster imo.
BUT MUH DRAMA!
Then add Akira to mix.
2nd volume of A-drei's manga is up for preorder on CD Japan.
can someone point me to the link for the Chinese raw?
my baidu kungfu is weak
thanks. Yeah.. that was pretty rushed and rather redundant..
VVV Anthology chapter 12 scanlation.
There needs to be more gattai in mecha.
Ah Newtype H-Neun. ;_;
L-Elf is so amusing in the anthology.
His no-nonsense attitude lends itself very well to comedy.
Worst character in the show. Everything she did was detrimental to the characters, only purpose for existing was needless drama, and really just boring after her first episode.
Yes, he's hilarious because he's so awkward and autistic. Also smug and bastardly when he's in his natural habitat which makes him a perfect troll.
L-11 Moe levels have been Maxed.
Who were the Golden Seven?
Somewhat related but the producer planned to have an L-Elf Shoko Haruto love triangle
But they decided it was stupid / ran out time / insert other reason
L-Elf's Imperial special task force
God fucking damn I'd watch that.
wouldn't really be a love triangle
just Shoko throwing a hissy fit after learning about episode 10
Haruto not being able to explain things, or rather, making it worse by explaining things
And L-Elf capitalizing the moment to manipulate and control Shoko
Considering how they "triangle" they did put in went,,,i'm glad that was scrapped.
Did moot swap your image? Because I'm seeing Saki and not L-Elf.
No, your eyes are working.
Would this mean Haruto rapes L-Elf or Shoko?
Wouldn't have worked since they had to have L-Elf in love with Lis and Haruto and Shoko's strong feelings for each other.
I'm pretty sure the story always meant for Shoko to be vindictive against Haruto and selling him out to ARUS
But I don't think they originally planned to do it this way.
Selling someone out over a forgotten childhood promise is well.. weak
Now if their was perceived sexual betrayal and lies involved. That makes more sense.
The more I think about it, the more I think that they replaced Valvrape for memory loss drama.
Even more weak was the fact that she could he that he was disoriented from coming back to life and trying to remember the promise and upset that he couldn't remember it. But she sells him out in two seconds.
L-Elf doesn't need to love Shoko
He just needs to use her
Shoko loves Haruto but she's also emotional and vindictive as the anime shown
Has everyone stopped glorifying Haruto now?
Is Haruto back to being hated again?
Maybe in the original draft, Haruto sexual assault on Saki was made public
THAT would cause A LOT of shitstorm and would force Shoko's hand
Unfortunately, I think they expected that it would also cause too much shitstorm with the viewers and abandoned the idea.
He was never a bad character, just that the writers treated him like a punching bad and gave him very slow development.
he's dead, so they see him as a martyr I guess.
Only L-Elf knows the truth
I wonder how this will work out in SRW, actually..
I think he's basically Sayaka (Madoka) of Valvrave
Except he has more valid reasons to hate his life
Everyone either still hates him or finds him dull, then there are those few Harutofags who just think he is cute or actually defend his character.
Shoko becomes a pilot after teh last Valvrave plot stage and gets Haruto's skills and stats.
Newtype Haruto should have been the MC instead.
Did we ever see him fully accept being a Kamitski and refer to it as a blessing during season 2?
We can pretty much assume the original plan was for Haruto to go berserk in the shuttle and maybe even rape someone. But they changed berserk mode to MUH MEMORIES over the break for whatever reason which fucked the entire plot up.
Sayaka was actually a good well written character though.
Will Newtype Haruto take over his body in S3?
Haruto's development was, I think about accepting himself and learning not to hate himself. If he did that Halfway through season 2 we could have gotten Newtype Haruto as the main character.
Well, the berserk spasms ended because Haruto got his runes from L-Elf on a regular basis.
Still kind of weird how it basically got swept under the rug though.
>Haruto got his runes from L-Elf on a regular basis.
Which lasted all of 5 episodes before he regressed back to his original state. And there is zero proof he even fed after episode 13.
no, I think he disliked it towards the end.
Some of the sound clips in the promos didn't play either.
And Shoko sees it as a form of atonement, probably.
I guess it will up to Akira and Saki to change the perception
Haruto never accepted himself. He died cursing that his very existence brought suffering to everyone around him.
Yeah, whatever happened to going berserk after being shot/low on runes?
We are supposed to assume he fed on L-Elf til Lis died.
I thought it was obvious Pino and Prue did something when they gattai'd at the end. That is most likely what made it a blessing.
Yeah, I think stopped feeding and decided to burn out himself after the Phantom Ship revelation too
In episode 17 he starts screaming about it being his curse and he'll suffer it alone. Which is followed up by L-Elf telling him he'll use him until there's nothing left. That was clearly meant to be the point where he stopped feeding.
Magius still need to eat runes. Pino is always hungry.
They're just less anal about it, unlike Haruto.
I never thought that having both of them in there would alter the entire system, nor was that ever hinted at. You can says the new activation question but that is just something that can be altered on the machine.
That's what I think too, but it's rather vague.
Knowing how Haruto's mind operate, this is most likely what happens, though.
With Pino and Prue together they can fuck all day and make their own runes.
Pino said that Hito ate most of the runes, if Haruto had handed the reins over to somebody else he probably wouldn't have gotten the attacks.
knowing vampire story staples, it seems appropriate, though
Haruto is the classic conflicted vampire who tried to return being human, failed and died hating his self
Cain and the Magius is the Masquerade of Valvrave
L-Elf's faction is Anarch. They're not really preaching co-existence. They just hate the old authority and want to have their own sovereignty.
I guess that's Shoko's burden now.
Unless she is just a ceremonial pilot
L-Elf wanted a pilot rotation for Hito, Shoko probably isn't its only pilot.
She probably feeds regularly off of the royal family.
Well if Valvrave side material has proven anything we will not find out in the next drama cd.
Or she, Akira, and Saki engage in sexy times. Really, why go through the trouble of attacking people when you can just fuck and get the same results?
L-Elf figures by MF when?
Shoko's feelings for Haruto were up the air until episode 10. She could have friendzoned him and lusted after L-Elf who in turned used her for Rizerotto.
And L-Elf's D.
>he lets her assault him so long as he gets an unlimited supply of youkan
They didn't think the whole agreement through and she ended up pregnant.
She was probably one of the few good thing in the anime.
A belated thanks for all your work, editor-anon.
Let's hope that the last Saki manga spoilers will be in the next VVV thread.
>Somewhat related but the producer planned to have an L-Elf Shoko Haruto love triangle
>Saki calling Audrey tsundere
Saki manga confirmed for canon.
Yep, fanart-tier canon.
Nope, ain't even mad. I preordered the 2nd tank and everything. Stay frustrated.
So better than anime canon?
Yep, pretty much.
Poor A-Drei, nobody takes him seriously.
How dare the staff mock him for his obsession!
This was just a phase, it's okay now.
I kinda hoped a cockroach would come out behind the bed and he jumped into Saki's lap.
It was worth since he got the happiest and best end out of the whole cast.

Good night, sweet thread.
His name is not Satomi.
A-drei got what he wanted: revolutionize Dorssia and keep L-elf's friendship. This was his best end.
And Satomi got more than he wanted: Takahi and his sister.
>A-drei got what he wanted
And so did Satomi.
He never truly won da Akira. We now don't even know if that's really him in the epilogue.
>and his sister
So what? He wanted to fix his relationship with her and he managed to get that.
L-elf's friendship > marriage with tits
Only if you are a fag or a fujoshi.
That's true, too bad we don't know if Akira ever managed to eat him like he wanted.
You're not a little girl? I'm sorry to hear that.
Get a load of this guy.
