Recap: The Dorssians put the pressure on and in desperation, ARUS tries to cut its losses and bail with the Valvrave in tow. Realizing they’ve been screwed, the students band together and declare independence from both ARUS and Dorssia, establishing an independent JIOR state on the grounds of their own school.
If it wasn’t immediately obvious that this anime is created by the same guy who made Guilty Crown and Code Geass, it should be very clear now. That said, the sheer audacity and ridiculousness of the entire situation almost has me going along with it. Sadly, it’s still not dumb and fun enough to be truly enjoyable like Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Overall, the characters actually managed to become somewhat more likable this episode, even if the antics themselves got dumber. Despite her idiotic plans and methods of proving her “purity”, I gotta give props to Shoko
the Liberator for sheer gutsiness. If nothing else, Guilty Valvrave : Shoko of the Rebellion the Liberator has somehow managed to keep me entertained enough to keep watching. Still not interesting enough to deserve more than a couple of paragraphs at most though.
