Valvrave the Liberator (革命機ヴァルヴレイヴ Kakumeiki Varuvureivu?, lit. Revolution Machine Valvrave) is a Japanese mecha anime series, produced by Sunrise, which premiered on April 12, 2013. The series took place in a futuristic date in which is the year 71 of the true calender where three factions divide 70% of the human race and these factions are constantly at war. The story focuses on Haruto Tokishima, a high school student from JIOR's Module 77 who pilots one of the few highly advanced weaponized mecha technology called Valvrave to stop the invading Dorssian forces.


Season 1Edit

True Calendar (T.C.) 71 - A new age where 70% of the human population lives in space thanks to the development of "Dyson Spheres", 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 Dyson 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! [1][2]

Season 2Edit

Haruto and his comrades continue to fight against the forces of Dorssia. However, many things remain unanswered in the midst of battle, including the past of L-elf and his fellow soldiers' past, the destiny of the mysterious girl Lieselotte, and the feelings of Haruto, Shoko, and Saki. The relationships and loyalty of each and every member of each army will be tested as the clash of ideals and power reaches its climax.
