Created by Sunrise Studio (Cowboy Bebop, Mobile Suit Gundam), VALVRAVE The Liberator is set in a world where 70% of the human population lives in space, following the story of a high-school student named Haruto Tokishima. Haruto is a kind, warm-hearted young man who hates violence, but all that will change when his peaceful home is suddenly invaded by the military forces of Dorssia Military Pact Federation.
When his whole world comes crashing down, he discovers a mysterious humanoid weapon called the Valvrave. Haruto is forced to decide between saving his friends and abandoning his own humanity. Will he be able to liberate the world with his newly acquired powers?
Chart-topping opening themes by renowned anime song artistes
The anime is also accompanied by two remarkably popular, chart-topping opening themes ‘Preserved Roses’ (Season One) and ‘Kakumei Dualism’ (Season Two), performed by celebrated Japanese anime song artistes T.M Revolution and Nana Mizuki.
