UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie (2002) began as a manga by Kaishaku (artists Hitoshi Ota and Terumasa Shichinohe, the creators of Steel Angel Kurumi), so there's lots of fan service nudity and jiggle shots. Nerdy student Kazuto Tokino maintains his grandfather's bath house, until Valkyrie, the princess of the planet Valhalla, crashes her space ship into it. To save Kazuto's life, she gives him half her soul, linking them forever. Valkyrie appears as an obnoxious child or an adoring, pneumatic babe: she's either 10 years too young or too old for Kazuto. The vocal cast shrieks the lines in a desperate attempt to energize the inane story, but it's a losing battle. When Kazuto's impatient sister Rika watches Valkyrie's cat girl maid Sanada and comments, "This is just plain ridiculous," she sums up Ultramaiden Valkyrie. (Rated TV MA SL, suitable for ages 16 and older: extensive nudity, violence, risqué humor, tobacco use, profanity) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

When Princess Valkyrie, of the planet Valhalla, crashes her spaceship into earth teenager Kazuto Tokino, she saves his life by giving him half her soul. Of course, there are side effects, foremost being her ensuing transformation, from mighty princess warrior to mischievous either-year old, dependent on Kazuto for bed and board.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Misunderstood anime March 6, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Though I cannot deny this anime is full of silly moments and lots of fanservice, making it one that it is seemingly more or less geared toward true anime fans, and otaku, it also touches on almost everyone of the genres within anime and I think does an excellent job of it, giving a great if slightly inane story for those that are willing to give this one the chance it deserves. I truly think UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie will appeal to a lot of people, and a lot more then other reviews seem to believe.

Part of what makes this so special to me is the story which takes place on a Earth where aliens are commonplace, and neko girls (cat girls) are considered to be just as much a part of everyday life as the aliens. It is within this world that Kazuto Tokino decides to run his late grandfather's bathhouse despite protests from his parents and sister who consider it to be a "money pit". One night when working in the bathhouse an alien named Princess Valkyrie, who is running from a marriage her parents arranged for her, destroys the bathhouse when her spaceship crashes into it. She also mortally wounds Kazuto, however, she is able to save his life with a magical kiss that gives him half of her soul, and turns her into an 8 year old child. She can return to her adult form by kissing Kazuto, but it only lasts for a short time, and is mostly done when there is a need to protect Kazuto.

Princess Valkyrie is then stranded on Earth in the form of an 8 year old child with the mind of one too, unable to look after herself even though the entire solar system is out searching for her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romantic Comedy May 22, 2006
Format:DVD
Princess Valkyrie is a beutiful, angelic-like creature whom is trapped inside the body of an eight year old girl (acts like a brat). Valkyrie is in love with a young boy named Kazuto, though Kazuto does not fully grasp it. Valkyrie can tranform into a older version of herself only with a magical kiss between her and Kazuto. She will be in her older version for a few minutes then revert back to her kiddie self. Though there is a sorta big brother/little sister theme to it, the romantic elements do not mesh well and imply something unethical in their relationship. The overall mood of this anime is comical and they use a very colorful pallet to convey this along with the SD(super deformed) design of some characters. Kazuto runs a bathhouse which seems unrealistic to the story and more of a vehicle to bring in the fan service into the show. So you will see lots of naked creatures in the bathhouse in each episode, though no sex is ever present. The series seeems to be aimed at girls, but then it is contridicted by the amount of fan service.

The universe in this anime is a cross between sci-fi and fantasy, you'll see aliens, spaceships and fantasy based creatures like; catgirls, sheep women, fairies and demons. They live and act as normal people do and sometimes get into mischief. I really liked the concept here, but it was poorly
executed. By making the alien and fantasy creatures act and live
like regular human, it detracts from novelty of having these unique creatures living among humans. There are twelve episodes over three volumes (discs), contains comedy and nudity. Even though there is no sex in the show, I cannot recommend it to people under 16 years of age because of the fan service. However the mindless nature of the show will repel older viewers and the anime savy. I don't think it's worth a purchase, but makes a good rental. I recommend the animes called "Oh, My Goddess" and "Video Girl Ai".

Format:DVD
from the time you put this dvd in the dvd player ,you'll be in stiches .the story goes that princess valkyrie ran away from the marriage arrangements in the planet of valhalla ,and crashed on top of bathhouse owner kazuto tokino,and kills him ,just for a moment ,to make amends she gave him half his soul ,and reverts to an eight year old child ,and then that's when all hell breaks loose! then her apparent sister hydra goes to earth to pick her up because she ain't going to give her freedom up just because valkyrie ran away ,oh but it doesen't end there y'all . then comes ms.sanada (oh yeah she's the head maid ,and a faithful servant of princess valkyrie),and assembles a field army of catgirl maids because she apparently saw kazuto give a gift to akina (kazuto's best friend,and shrine preistess of nanako shrine,and apparently having crush on kazuto),and comes in one of the interviewed bethroed candidates for valkyrie's marriage the prince of mora ,althrough this dvd is hilarious but should be appropriate for children over 12 years of age due to brief nudity,and apparent sayings that might just be innapropriate for younger viewers but if you wanna watch a good anime that'll leave you in stiches this is the show to watch .

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining August 9, 2013
By Jack
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It is an ok series.

I do think all the little girls in some of these shows that turn into "big" girls is ... disturbing sometimes. But over all this was entertaining but I wouldn't buy it or pay to see it.
