Valkyria Chronicles is a 2009 anime series produced by A-1 Pictures, based on the video game of the same name. The show is set in a fictitious continent called Europa, which bears a striking resemblance to Europe during the early 20th century. The story takes place during a time of war, during which two major powers are fighting against each other in a bid to control the valuable mineral Ragnite.

The show follows a group of soldiers from the small country of Gallia, who find themselves thrust into the heart of the conflict. Led by the stubborn and determined Welkin Gunther, the soldiers must fight for their country, and for their lives.

One of the most striking aspects of this show is its distinct visual style. The animation is done in a watercolor-like fashion, which gives the show a unique look and feel. This, combined with the show's incredible attention to detail, makes for a truly immersive viewing experience.

Another standout feature of Valkyria Chronicles is its characters. The show has a large and diverse cast of characters, each with their own unique personalities and backstories. From the mysterious and deadly Selvaria Bles, to the cheerful and optimistic Alicia Melchiott, every character is fully fleshed out and feels like a real person.

The voice acting in this show is also top-notch. Marina Inoue does an excellent job as the tough and determined Alicia, while Junko Minagawa brings a great sense of vulnerability to the role of Welkin. Houko Kuwashima is also fantastic as Selvaria, bringing a sense of power and menace to the character.

In terms of plot, Valkyria Chronicles is a complex and multi-layered story that keeps the viewer engaged from start to finish. There are plenty of twists and turns that keep the story moving forward, and the show does a great job of balancing action, drama, and comedy.

One of the standout moments of the series is the portrayal of the show's central conflict. Rather than painting one side as wholly good and the other as wholly evil, Valkyria Chronicles presents a nuanced view of war that is both refreshing and thought-provoking. The show does not shy away from the harsh realities of war, but it also manages to find moments of hope and humanity amidst the chaos.

Overall, Valkyria Chronicles is an excellent anime series that is sure to please fans of action, drama, and intrigue. Its gorgeous animation, compelling characters, and gripping plot make it a must-watch for anyone looking for a truly immersive viewing experience.
