valvraveSpoiler and stuff:

So the dude in Valvrave became a vampire when he became the pilot of the show’s required mystery mecha that needs to be piloted to save the day from your standard first episode baddie minions. This makes way more sense than it should.

Most mecha series follow a certain pattern. Ordinary dude stumbles upon a mecha. He isn’t trained, but something happens which allows him to be all badass from the get-go– natural aptitude, unknown psychic powers, whatever. It’s as if the dude goes through some sort of transformation once he gains control of the show’s star mecha. One second he was just some dude, and now he’s the savior of mankind-can-do-no-wrong-chosen-one-etc.

Turning the dude into a vampire upon contact with the mecha makes a hell of a lot more sense than most other rationalizations. Most vampire myths have those who get turned gain supernatural powers almost immediately. As soon as you get turned, you gain supernatural strength, speed, senses, and all that bloodsucking jazz. It’s immediate and primal knowledge– as if you always had it. That makes the hero’s sudden awesomeness at piloting a mecha make a lot more sense, because he has all of the required skills to take down a bunch of seasoned pilots during his first go.

If anything, it’s a wonder it’s taken this long for the vampire thing to be integrated into a mecha series, especially with the popularity of that shit in other modes of pop culture.

Yeah. Mechulas are a perfectly natural and beautiful thing.

    I’m pretty sure there was a vampire in the first aquarion. However, I didn’t watch enough to know how it was integrated, or if the vampire ppilots a mecha.
