Characters that made my year – L-Elf (The Twelve Days of Christmas: Day Ten)
L-Elf is hands down the best character in Valvrave – but then again he is pretty much an amalgamation of all my favourite character traits. Eru-Erufu is a walking plot device and so astonishingly competent that he managed to turn a bunch of bratty high-schoolers into a military force to be reckoned with…….he can’t make them all that likeable, but he’s a genius not a god.
There are so many wonderful Valvrave moments – I’ve actually started legitimately enjoying the show rather than just being amused at how stupid it is – and L-Elf is usually the root cause of it. Part chessmaster, part one-man army, all awesome – L-Elf is just wonderful to watch. I’ve selected ep19 as my L-Elf highlight, because you get to see a whole host of new sides to him as he single-mindedly heads towards his goal of rescuing Princess Liselotte.
