"Never before has an anime series swung so wildly between moments of genuine greatness and outright awfulness. Valvrave the Liberator exists somewhere in between ‘so bad its good’ and ‘offensively bad’ for the majority of its run. It is almost as if Sunrise gave the production team complete creative freedom and what resulted is a unabashed mess of an anime series. Yet somehow, someway, Valvrave makes for an addictive viewing experience. Valvrave is like watching a train wreck; you know you are watching something horrible yet somewhere deep inside a part of you just won’t let you look away."
