The Rune Abyss (情報原子(RUNE)の深淵 Jōhō Genshi (Rune) no Shin'en) is the 17th episode of Kakumeiki Valvrave and the fifth episode of Season 2. It first aired on November 7, 2013.

Detailed SynopsisEdit

Haruto, L-elf and Takumi learn from the Pino AI that the Valvrave 01 began extracting the Runes of Marie's life force when she ran out of memories, killing her in the process. Also showing mild signs of the same phenomenon, this new revelation rattles Haruto to the point of becoming terrified of operating the Valvrave 01. Afterwards, L-elf announces that they will ally with the Dorssian Royalists and aid them in destroying a Dorssian Military submarine known as "The Phantom." Meanwhile, X-eins informs H-nuen of his invitation to a private meeting in Grünau by Cain which prompts an investigation by H-neun. Haruto and L-elf later infiltrate the Phantom ship and shockingly discover a covert room where Runes are harvested from humans. Simultaneously, Cain attacks H-neun in his Grünau villa when the latter stumbles upon on a Magius meeting whereby they intend to use X-eins and the collected Runes for a particular ceremony. At the same time, the Dorssians discover the New JIORians and upon deeming Haruto mentally unfit, L-elf tries to have Satomi protect them with the Valvrave 01 much to Haruto's protest. However as Haruto and L-elf recognize their feelings of powerlessness, the former uses Unit 01 to repel the Dorssians while resolving to end the war before the Valvrave takes his own life. Meanwhile, as X-eins discovers the ruined meeting, another Phantom ship makes its way to the Moon.
