Valvrave the Liberator
Valvrave the Liberator [革命機ヴァルヴレイヴ] is an upcoming original anime directed by Matsuo Kou [松尾衡] (Rozen Maiden, Yozakura Quartet) with animation production by Sunrise [株式会社サンライズ] (Tiger & Bunny, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn).
The future has come with the development of space cities known as 'Dyson Spheres', which have allowed over 70% of mankind to live out in space. At the same time, the world has been separated into two major powers known as the Dorushia Military Alliance and the Atlantic Ring United States (ARUS).
In this future there exists a small nation known as Diol, which has remained neutral with both the major powers, allowing it to have a prosperous economy as well as retaining peace. Tokishima Haruto is a high school student who lives in Module 77 of the Diol Sphere where he has a fairly peaceful life - but that changes very quickly when the Dorushia army suddenly invades his home!
However, Haruto then encounters the mysterious humanoid-shaped weapon known as 'Valvrave'...
