In 2002, "UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie" has been a series that has generated its fandom with its magical girl, harem genre storyline.

The anime series is based on a manga by mangaka group Kaishaku (Hitoshi Ota and Terumasa Shichinohe) who have created manga series "Steel Angel Kurumi", "Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto", "Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora" and several other titles. The manga was published by Square Enix from 2002-2007 on Monthly Shonen Gangan and has spawned a first and second season which were 12 episodes long, a two episode OAV, season three (six episodes) and season four (two episodes).

Both season three and four were released as multiple volumes through ADV Films back in 2007. But the the rights to the series has been transferred to FUNimation Entertainment and thus the third and fourth seasons will now be available on two DVD's via a OVA collection and will be released on August 11, 2004.

The main storyline of "UFO ULTRAMAIDEN VALKYRIE" takes place on a future Earth where interplanetary travel and alien encounters are commonplace. The story focuses on high school student named Kazuto Tokino who runs a bath house with his sister while his parents live in the U.S. Life was going quite well for the teenager until a UFO crashed into the bath house. Kazuto was near death until Valkyrie (who piloted the aircraft) gave up part of her soul to keep Kazuto alive. By doing this, the adult Valkyrie has been turned into a younger version.

And because now they share this special bond, Kazuto and Valkyrie are close (and it looks weird for a teenager to be with a young girl all the time). And throughout the first season, ultramaidens have attempted to bring Valkyrie back home to no avail.

I started watching Season's 1&2 on Amazon.com prime membership video streaming. I loved it! I do hope they get the rights to add Season 3&4 soon and a season 5 is needed as well to answer many questions the series leaves viewers asking still. I like to collect all the anime I loved and I will be purchasing everything I enjoy to show support. I have about 15 shows to buy on DVD still and I hate people who try and sell DVD's like this one for like over 100$ and call it a good deal which is the case when you search for Season 1&2! There is even a seller asking for $999.99$ for a DVD of Seasons 1&2. LOL! My collection can be broken and not complete before I will ever pay prices like that. This DVD set however was too good of a deal to pass up and buying it was my only option since Amazon doesn't have it uploaded to the Prime video streaming yet! I even uploaded my own drawing of Valkyrie and her pet Spot. I hope the show gets a season 5 and if not, no big deal its something any anime fan should watch if it fits your taste in anime.

This is a cute series. The princess and the main character have a sweet relationship. The supporting characters are a lot of fun as well. The first 2 seasons were way better though. The title is also misleading. Seasons 3 and 4 only total about 8 episodes. I was disappointed by the length of the DVD set, but the story continued to be interesting. If you like the first 2 seasons go ahead and get this collection, but its too short.

If you enjoyed the first two seasons this is a good addition. The story continues, the other princesses are introduced, and Kazuto and Valkyrie still have the drama as before. Miss Sanada has a pretty funny episode. And though only seconds long, the board games that Valkyrie, Laine, and Chorus play are hilarious.

Depending on your patience, "Val-Q" may be pushing it a bit.

What is disappointing is the amount of content of this set. If the full description wasn't read and no knowledge of the prior releases of these episodes is known, one wonders how two 12 episode seasons fit into a single DVD case. Yes there are 14mm DVD cases that hold 6 discs, it is an engineering marvel, but they are heavy when full and, at this time, are only black in color not clear.

This set comes with 2 DVDs. The first disc is the six episode Season 3. The second disc contains the two episode "Season 4" OVA's. They are all 22 minute episodes.

With a price that is close to the prior two seasons, whether full price, discounted, or used, one can't help but feel ripped off with the amount of content this set provides.

Cost wise, it may be advisable to just find the liquidated prior releases or used copies of these episodes.

Another nuisance is that you cannot fast forward, skip, or goto the main menu when starting the disc. These features are all disabled and you have to sit through all of the production logos and a preview.

Story and quality are as good as before.

harem anime can end up being great or terrible. This one held up surprisingly well, with the humor managing to obscure some of the more tired and strained plot twists. Valkyrie is a good character and the writers clearly loved the rest of the cast. It's not the best, but its still fun

Finally the wedding ceremony. . .well, events leading up to it. Still partial nudity, chest and butt (with no real definition). Some adult situations and content.

Each Princess is different. . .with their own quirks and eclectic tastes. As you see growth in each, you can relate if you have sisters or very young aunts or female cousins.
