Aniplex's A-1 Pictures anime studio (Ookiku Furikabutte, Persona -trinity soul-, Birdy the Mighty: Decode, Kuroshitsuji, Kannagi) produced the project under the direction of Yasutaka Yamamoto (episode director on xxxHOLiC: Kei, Big Windup!). Canada's Catherine St. Onge (Himeka) sang the show's opening theme song.
The story is set in the wartorn country of Gallia in a fictional version of 1930s Europe. When Imperial forces attack the small border town of Bruhl, Welkin Gunther, son of late General Belgen Gunther, is forced to fight for his life alongside Town Watch captain Alicia Melchiott. Along with Welkin's adopted sister Isara, the three escape to Gallia's capitol and subsequently join the country's militia forces.
Sega released the original tactical role-playing game in Japan, Europe, and North America in 2008. Sega released two sequel games on the PlayStation Portable in 2010 and 2011 in Japan. Valkyria Chronicles II received a Western release, but Valkyria Chronicles III did not. The third game received an original video anime adaptation last year.
