There’s a new mecha anime out called Valvrave the Liberator. The setting and plot starts off very Gundam-like, but shifts away from it with SPACE VAMPIRES. Sounds nuts, and it is. You have to watch it to understand. Anyways, I’ve seen a couple episodes and I am intrigued. In terms of mecha combat, the Valvrave is super OP at first. As Zero-0 puts it: it’s like Unicorn Gundam vs Zaku Tanks. You may enjoy it if you don’t take it too seriously.
