They are by far the best anime! We counts down the best anime to come out all the time, including the likes of Tokyo Juushouden, Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of the Time, Diabolik Lovers OVA, and more!
18: Tokyo Juushouden
English: Ten Tokyo Warriors
MAL Score: 5.35
Long ago, in feudal Japan, there was a fierce warrior named the Demon King. He controlled a band of demons, known as the Kyouma. Only the powers of ten warriors sealed the Demon King away and kept the Kyouma under control. But now, Lord Shindigan, a powerful Kyouma is planning to free the Demon King, and the reincarnations of the ten warriors must band together and save the earth.
17: Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of the Time
English: Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of Time
Japanese: グローランサーIV ~Wayfarer of the time~
MAL Score: 5.58
A promotional ova that came with the PS2 game, Growlanser IV Returns which is an add-on featuring a compilation of three short stories that is told in visual novel style.
Since it is a promotional ova, various main characters from Growlanser I, Growlanser II, and Growlanser III do appear in the ED. Actually, some of the fairies of these main characters do appear in Growlanser IV as that the entire Growlanser story is based on anti-war featuring time freeze, time traveling, and parallel worlds.
Growlanser is not something to called magnificent but it is videogame adaptation that at least is enjoyable and really well done to promote the videogame.
Story = 6
Since MAL hasn’t typed the story about this OVA here it is.
So the story talks about this commander of an army called Dianna that after a war happened in her continet she decides that there should be a peace treaty among the nations of the continent, but some people of the high hierachy decide that there should be a revolt and like that make another conflict.
The story is not that great but does the job. The message of making peace and not have more war is cliche but it doesn’t drag too long and you can have some entertainment value out of this. It is not perfect but hey at least is not an Idea Factory OVA.
Characters = 5
The only some sort of development in this OVA is about Dianna, she is a commander but after experimenting the war and seeing that people have suffered enough. Her character is ok. She is the one giving the speech about the peace treaty but she is good at sword fighting against others and just that.
The other characters are tropes, but do the job. The character development is not existent though.
Animation = 8
The character designs for me are simply beautiful. They have this 90s feel and for being a simple promotion of a videogame that nobody knows, they really show they did care. There aren’t any weird frames or some weird 3D animation like many of this videogame promotions tend to do. The only problem is that there aren’t many scenes where they show how this continent is. That would have added a big plus to at least get the feel of the setting they are in. Good job from Feels and Zexcs.
Sound = 8
The music is great. The instumental pieces they chose are fantastic. Honestly is an OST worth to check out. It is very medieval but also melancholic sometimes and it is used at their fullest because for being 30 minutes they used it for all this animation and the ending song is nice too.
The voice actors are ok. They do the job. Nothing feels forced or souless and they gave some life to the characters on the show.
Enjoyment and Overall.
Check it out if you have time. It is an okish OVA and something to watch if you have a half hour.
This is everything. Take care in whatever you do and see ya around.
16: Diabolik Lovers OVA
Japanese: DIABOLIK LOVERS OAD
MAL Score: 5.75
OVA of Diabolik Lovers included with the upcoming game Diabolik Lovers DARK FATE.
Thanks for reading my review!!
STORY: Sad. Very sad.
ART: The art is actually amazing. I love the character designs and color tones.
SOUND: Love it.
ENJOYMENT: I kind of wanted it to end as soon as it began…
OVERALL: I’m not touching this series with a bargepole ever again.
OOOOOH, HOOOO, Mr. Sadistic Night…..
My Verdict for each of this OVA’s category:
Story: A Mediocre 5
Art: Poor 3
Sound: Mediocre 5
Character: Dreadful 2
Enjoyment: Dreadful 2
Overall: Dreadful, dreadful and dreadfullllllllll 2.
Ok, so what we have here can only be describe as the introduction of the Mukami’s and the Tsukinami’s for the upcoming season 2 of this dreaded anime. Already, what I can see were just the addition of other reverse harem members, that would further complicated Komori Yui’s already hellish situation as the vampires’ living blood bank, so far since the OVA was still connected to the 1st season’s story (up), there is no point anymore of me giving this OVA a higher score than 5. Also, the Art (up) as usual them vamp assholes look like a bunch of homosexual old farts, both in fashion and in hairstyle. Sound(up)…..well, there isn’t much for me to say anything, since the ones who did the character’s voices are still there, it’s basically a mediocre. Character (up), they literally suck, as they are just good in sucking up the poor girl, and already I don’t see any happy ending for the girl in the up coming season 2 and I also don’t see any bad ending for them vampire asshole, like them Sakamakis’, Mukamis’ and the Tsukinamis’ in the upcoming season 2, Enjoyment (up) I feel like going to Japan and give the writer of this dreadful anime/OVA a smack in his/her face (don’t ya’ll even get me started, putos). Overall (up) it sucks, sucks and suck, basically this OVA hasn’t strayed away from its usual blood sucking porn.
15: “Eiyuu” Kaitai
English: Eiyu Kaitai
MAL Score: 5.96
Uro Yamada works as part of the “Hero Retirement and Return to Everyday Life Assistance Agency,” which takes heroes from another world back to Earth and helps them reintegrate into everyday life.
the thing for me here is, I like the Idea however I don’t think that the plot lived up to our expectations.
to put it simple this is just about Kougyoku who is having a hard time adapting to change, but the title and plot is so different.
We should have seen some heroes trying to find work or going to school instead of this whole having a hard time to adapt cliche crap.
the series we re so focused on Kogyouku that the rest of the characters that are supposed to be interesting are just there.
and how the story went, they did it in the most cliche thing ever doing beach episodes making pointless dramas about secondary characters.
nonetheless I still enjoyed it, but I was dismayed at the plot.
it’s just 1 episode so I think it’s worth to give a shot it’s not like watching anime for 24 minutes will kill you or anything.
and even with the cliche plot and characters I think you’ll still enjoy this.
I found this as the first listing on the movies and OVA page of aniwatcher and decided to watch it. It turned out to be better than i expected, wouldn’t of minded a full on 12 episode series.
I would recommend giving this show a shot, Its only a half hour OVA. you may be surprised. It was worth the watch IMO.
Now this is an OVA, and it certainly feels like an OVA in every sense. Without reading the original novel myself, I can tell this animation attempts to nod to audiences that read the novelization and includes the characters from it. Still, I believe the characters have some charm to them even as the episode seems to expect you already know them.
The story does a decent job of moving fast by using comedy and then addressing characterization with interactions, considering how limited their time was. It captures some of the feel of the concept while focusing mainly on a character’s adjustment and development. Although not the most relatable, I found the character’s unique hang up to be fun to address, and I think it was described just well enough to see why she acts the way she does.
I’m not the most attentive to art or sound, but I did enjoy the designs of the characters and the animation, and the sound never stood out as out of place to me.
Because of how much fun you can get out of a single episode bringing the concept to life, I do think “Eiyuu” Kaitai is worth a watch.
14: Happy World!
Japanese: Happy World!
MAL Score: 6.00
Oomura Takeshi is one unlucky fellow. He has has this case of bad luck ever since he was little. One day, while on his normal runs with bad luck, he meets an Angel named Elle, and he finds out that his father wished the curse of bad luck upon him. Takeshi has the oppurtunity to pass on the curse, but accepts it to save a young girl. For his noble act, Elle becomes human and lives with Takeshi to protect him from the curse, which is something Takeshi isn’t particularly happy with.
Story: Poor. The "poor kid" is cursed with the worst life ever. The problem is it doesn’t seem too bad. He just gets into alot of stupid accidents. He still has his entire family who seem in good health. It’s kind of….comical the unhappiness and lack of luck he has. But the problem is that it isn’t presented well. Each episode as well is sort of self-contained. This works for something that’s 24 episodes…look at Bebop…but for this it makes the entire thing seem inadequate. It feels incomplete, it has a beginning but no real end or sense of completion.
Art: Inadequate. Terrible. It’s done in a sort of cheap minimalistic style that makes the entire anime seem bland and monotone. It’s colourful, but there’s no feeling to anything. They also do this very annoying thing with hair and eyes. Whenever hair goes over the eyes it completely disappears. Some anime do this very well, but this one it feels hacked.
Sound: The first time in a long time that I’ve ever noticed sound. And it’s terrible. It suits the anime but only because it seems so incredibly superficial. The ending theme is a ripoff of a song off of Grease.
Character: Characters are completely flat, no dimensions at all. The kid with this terrible curse is so annoying and he never really tries to do anything about it. The angel is just fanservice. I have no problem with fanservice…fanservice me all you want. But even this seemed cheap. Anytime her halo is ripped off she gets completely naked. She’s able to "manipulate the light around her" so that she never has to wear clothes…..cheap. There’s a monkey too….and if you watch this and wonder "wtf?" I wwondered the exact same thing.
Enjoyment: I didn’t enjoy this at all, I didn’t laugh for most of the really cheap stuff that they did.
This anime is very lacklustre, it’s terribly thought out and proceeds far too slowly than the 3 episodes allow. An entire episode is spent on nearly a single event…an event that has absolutely no real significance. I don’t recommend this anime to anyone, it’s not even mindless fun.
I should be reviewing the mangu. Heh.
But, to sum up, don’t judge the franchise based on this.
Honestly in the ways of the synopsis it offers very little. It just deals with the main characters poor luck and a few slightly more original slice of life style episodes. The fact Elle is a angel is not really important to the series as she helps out at the capacity of a normal kind bighearted person with the exception she generates good luck.
I honestly dislike the main character cause hes just a punk. I mean hes mean to the people who are nice to him. I guess from the characters point of view he has never really had a good day so he is understandably grumpy. Later on in the ova you realize that even tho he is rough around the edges hes a generally warm guy under his hard shell.
The art is simple and with a warm color pallet drawn in standard Pre-CGI animation. The backgrounds and scenery are not very memorable but i think the characters were had some pretty warm expressions. That’s where i think i liked the art in this show is that when i saw there faces i really could sense feeling. The sound is generally up beat threw the whole experience except when a serious tone is taken. The best voice i give to Elle its just so sweet and pure sounding you cant help but think it would belong to a child angel.
It is to bad the series was to short to get anywhere plot wise they really only scratched the tip of the iceberg i feel. If given more time it could have been much more interesting and well developed but sadly it was not the case. I think for what it was given it was a pretty sweet experience and i don’t really have much complaints about it. So i am gonna give this a 5 for being Ok and a generally pleasant experience overall.
MAL Score: 6.03
In Kyoto, apprentices known as maiko are skilled performers of traditional dance and song. It is said their elegance and grace leaves any audience entranced.
Mai Ichinose, Riko Kikuzuki, and Midori Aikawa are young girls who aspire to become maiko. They reside together in a geisha house to polish and perfect their skills, developing bonds of trust and supporting each other. However, their shared dream may prove disastrous for their friendship…
When they learn about an upcoming festival, they cannot help but get excited. But soon they realize only two maiko can represent each house. It is then that the three close friends become distant, seeking to prove who is most deserving of the role. Ultimately, they must choose between fulfilling their own dream—finally within reach—or keeping their treasured friendship alive.
Pfft.. That was the failure of this OVA. It only mentioned in a passing glance that Maikos are culturally rich assets, but never bothered showing a Maiko’s life.
This show is about 3 girls who want to become Maikos. And it’s just about their friendship.
Still crowds and subtle movements, but pretty and detailed backgrounds. The setting is good. There’s a show at the end, but I’d have preferred more, esp. for an OVA that was to lead to that moment.
Should have had more traditional sounds. If it is awareness they want to create, there’s hardly any through sounds. The seiyuus are good though. Each character’s voice shows something about them.. heavy, light, off-beat. But definitely could have been better, even the dialogues.
Utterly basic. I mean, how many times have we not seen petty fights. Grow out of it. Else, show a petty fight in a new way with fresh dialogues and more character revealing situations. Compare this with Harmonie, and that has such a stark development in the exact same time. This was verrrry slow. If this had a TV series, I’d be bored to death. They try imitating Hanasaku Iroha, and miserably fail. If Hanasaku’s characters were to become Maikos, oh, what a wonder we’d have seen!!
I’m not sure what I enjoyed here. Maybe the art? Or just waiting for something to happen? haha
It’s good to watch if you’re craving anime and have nothing around. Just a time-pass. It’s not informative, the story is dead, the characters are wheee-happy with a OMG what’s happening! in between. So… you get the point. Take it up if you’re waiting for something and you got half an hour to spare.
This is a 1 episode short story that follows 3 girls as they practice and strive to become Maikos. The show covers what the girls do to practice and do while they are getting ready for an upcoming festival.
The charcters are a nice bunch of teenage girls, there superior Maikos, and elderly teachers. They are all well designed and easy to like.
The music consists mostly of a piano that plays calmly during the show to set a perfect mood.
Art is nice and average. It is nothing spectacular or crappy. I will complment the backgrounds of the city though as they look quite nice.
This OVA is nothing to be going in as if its a 10/10 anime. So I suggest just watching it as a show to pass by the time and learn a little bit about Japanese heritage.
Mitsuwano is a story of three young Geisha apprentices (called Maiko), Riko, Midori and Mai, partaking in an upcoming festival. Being only one episode long (about 30 minutes), it is really a condensed version of something that could easily run a full season.
Opting for a one episode OVA, the pacing is rather fast. It unfortunately skips a lot of character development. How did the three meet? How did they become such close friends? What was their back stories? Too bad none of these were explored in any details. What we get is a small arc of an overall story. In all honesty, it barely touches the surface.
The main take away is that all three Maiko are training hard for an upcoming festival. However, a shopkeeper tells them that only two of them will be chosen for a role in the performance. Hence, the three friends now become competitors. This ends as well as any slice-of-life anime would end. Honestly, the story is not something spectacular. In fact, I think it leans towards the cliche side of story telling. I really wish it would at least run another two or three episodes, letting the viewers in on the everyday lives of a Maiko and the path they take to become a fully fledged Geisha, a centuries old profession that is getting less and less attention in the 21st century.
The Gion district is more or less depicted in Mitsuwano. Everything in the world of Geisha is so delicate and organized. The art shows that organization in great details. The shops are clean, everything is in order, nothing seems out of place. The kimono is brightly colored and fit for purpose.
For those who have been to Kyoto (and the Kansai region in general) will notice the details given to the dialogs of the characters in Mitsuwano. The Kansai dialect is very noticeable and there are even a few occasions where one of the girls got scolded for not using the correct dialect. It is such details that make Mitsuwano watchable.
Overall, Mitsuwano is not a bad anime, but as I have said throughout this review, one episode is not nearly enough to give the characters and story the time it needs to grow and foster a relationship with the viewer. A longer format, or even a feature film would do it better justice. Whatever the reason that was decided to release Mitsuwano in this format, don’t let the short duration put you off. The art is appealing, it is full of little details that make you think that the creators really did their research. The subject matter is interesting, albeit it is probably more relevant in Japan than in the rest of the world. Watch it for what it is.
12: Saishuu Shiken Kujira Progressive
Japanese: 最終試験くじら Progressive
MAL Score: 6.06
In the past Mutsumi (Mucchan) and Sae (Sacchan) met. Enjoying the time together, they decided to meet again and chose a place. Mucchan, however, never came to that place.
A few years later he passed through that place on his way to school, and met Sacchan, who had been waiting for him for all those years. And so, they start playing together again. However, it won’t last so long, because…
To be quite honest, I watched the first anime in the Saishuu Shiken Kujira series and I really didn’t like it.. moreover It kept me wondering what is happening here many times in the show.. Due to this I concidered dropping Saishuu Shiken Kujira Progressive. Seeing now after haing actually seen the show I am really happy i decided to give it a try. The way I see it the stories don’t contain much alike exept from the one main character.. So anyways..
The story takes place as the main character Kuonji, Mutsumi just have moved back to a place they used to live before.. Not remembering much of this place exept that they used to live here once he goes to the park to remember what happened once…. He meets a young girl who is looking for a boy named Macchan. After awhile he tells the girl his real name and with that she comes to the conclusion he is Macchan. Who is this girl? and why does she know my nickname? Asmuch as he thinks about it after alot of though he remembers a girl in his past that was called Sacchan. And from here starts a LoveStory filled with Drama and Heartbreak you would have never Imagined.. Its a good story with a little slow start on it, However once you get into the storyline the romance will take you away..
11: Harukanaru Toki no Naka de: Ajisai Yumegatari
Japanese: 遙かなる時空の中で 紫陽花ゆめ語り
MAL Score: 6.24
Whisked away to the land of Kyou, Akane learns that she is the Ryuujin no Miko, and meets the Hachiyou, her protectors. They must defeat Akuram, a demon who wants to destroy Kyou using the power of Azusa, a woman who has the power to absorb human energy. If Akane and the Hachiyou cannot defeat Akuram and bring peace to Kyou, Azusa’a power will destroy the humans.
10: Kurage no Shokudou
MAL Score: 6.25
One fateful day, Youtarou Misaki is rescued by a man named Arashi Mutou from drowning in the sea. After getting him to dry land, Arashi wakes Youtarou up and asks for his name. Youtarou’s memories quickly surge back, but instead of telling Arashi his name, he decides to lie and act clueless about his past.
Arashi nurses Youtarou and lets him temporarily stay at his diner, Kurage no Shokudou. Despite his hospitality, Youtarou continues to insist that he has no recollection of how he ended up drifting across the sea. How will the fake amnesiac go on with his life now that he has abandoned his family and home?
The summary explains you how the story begins, how the main character lost his twin brother and how he fakes amnesia. So far, not the most interesting setting in the world, but not bad either. Little did I know…
Although the plot presented in the summary isn’t really what’s presented, the alternative isn’t that bad either, although it tries a bit too hard to be emotional.
(SPOILER AHEAD) Although it’s a small detail, after watching the anime, the jellyfish in the tank gains a new meaning (makes you wonder whether that’s his brother or not).
The art is pretty mediocre. Its obviously better in certain scenes but in some others it’s pretty bad.
The music isn’t outstanding, at least in my opinion. Watched it 5 minutes ago and I don’t even remember hearing music, so yeah, it’s pretty bland.
I spent the first 20 minutes (out of 30) wondering if this was shounen ai.
Then I spent the next 5 minutes cursing the NTR.
The female VA is very cringy.
For the lazy; nope, jellyfish syndrome does not exist.
The art doesn’t get in the way — it’s a bit understated, and so is the music, although I loved the movement.
As for the story – it’s a reminder that there are times when all we really need is a bit of reset, and sometimes, people are lucky enough to find kind souls who allow us just that. It wasn’t particularly sad, rather, I felt it dealt with loss in a matter-of-fact way, which made it not too draining, but still encourages thinking.
Kurage no Shokudou is based around Misaki, a boy who’s found in the beach by Arashi, the owner of a restaurant nearby, called Arashi, decides to take care of him because he says that he can’t remember anything.
The story is based around the interactions between both of them and Natsuko, a friend of Arashi, soon drama unfolds while we discover more about why Misaki is there, and we see the situation Arashi and Natsuko are in, sadly, like I mentioned, the anime doesn’t finish the story and leaves the viewers with a frustrating open ending just when it picked a good point in said drama.
The backgrounds are visually appealing, but sadly the same can’t be said about the characters, that look quite terrible, anyways, the clear worst part is the sound, most of the time we only hear background sounds, and when we don’t, the music never stands out at all, there are also lots of overly long silent moments and, specially, Natsuko’s voice was awful, I looked for her seiyuu, Satomi Koorogi, and I found that she only voices child characters like Ushio from Clannad After Story, Himawari from Shin Chan, or even Togepi from Pokemon, and I’m completely clueless about why was she picked to voice Natsuko’s character.
Overall I have to say that the OVA of Kurage no Shokudou is not worth watching due to the lack of clear ending and for overall being of poor quality.
9: Nozo x Kimi
English: Nozo x Kimi
MAL Score: 6.42
Suga Kimio finds himself hiding in the girls locker room, unable to move or escape the situation as the girls in his school crowd in. Although he originally had no ulterior motives, he found himself panicking as he heard the girls coming in and hid in a locker. Komine Nozomi, one of the shy girls in his class finds him, but surprisingly covers for him. Perplexed but glad, Kimio goes home.
Later that night, he gets a text from Nozomi who happens to live across the way on the same floor of the complex they both live in. She blackmails him into agreeing to show each other’s bodies when she texts him. Kimio has to abide by Nozomi’s insane demands or risk ruining his school life so they both start their little peep show through each other’s windows…
My rating for this anime overall is just average. To sum this up quickly I think the first two episodes were extremely weak in most ways. The stories were forgettable, as were the characters. I ended up not really caring about how the stories ended up and I really just wanted to see more of the main character and main heroine which we didn’t really get much of.
But the redeeming quality of this anime, what made it bearable and actually surprisingly enjoyable for me, was the third episode. There was a more serious tone to it and actually surprised me in a few ways. Not to mention we finally got to see more development of the main characters. To me, the end was truly heartwarming and I was happy I stuck through to the end.
As far as art goes, it was pretty mediocre not terrible but not great. The soundtrack had a few good songs in it for sure, and me personally, I loved the ending song especially for the last episode. With how simplistic the ending song is it kind of sets the theme of the anime: simple, not really trying but for what it was going for, it didn’t necessarily need to.
All in all: decent, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it, but if you have time to kill it’s pretty good even if you’re only watching for the last episode.
Story: Two classmates live in two opposite apartment having their window facing each other. And their love, exhibitionism all happens like usual plot. The female lead is the person who blackmails the male lead and he have to do all the things, but still the anime has a amazing vibe and I totally love it. It is a ecchi anime and have some nude scene but as the serize progressed ecchiness decreased and story and the pace increased.
Art: The best part of NxK. There is no complain about the art at all. Its amazing, the way every thing was shown are really great.
Sound: Not great but not bad either, fair. Main two voice actor: good job.
Character: Only 3 episodes, so no character development. Kimio is your typical school boy who bumps with beautiful girls without any logical reason but he is tolerable. Nozomi character is the main attraction of NxK, literally she only knows Kimio, and she teases him, she blackmails him and she loves him a lot. She is not our typical tsundre loli but she is clam person, believes Kimio, tries everything to protect him, in a nutshell her character is great.
Enjoyment: After watching the 1st episode I was like meh, what is it? Another fan service? But after watching the other two, I was astonished. The incident may be abrupt but outcome, the scenes of Kimioi and Nozomi are very very beautiful. Yes, I enjoyed the OVA, particularly the last two episode.
Overall: I admit it is not a masterpiece but still I gave 10/10, it should not have such a low ranking, there are lot of useless anime having much better ranking. Don’t drop it after watching only the first episode, try the rest two. Blackmail the guy you love with a sweet way, that’s what I was looking for, after a long search I came across this OVA. Hope it will have a full length anime someday but for now I am going to read the manga. Who knows a cliche anime like this would be so good! Thanks of reading the review.
Story: Fair 6.
Frankly the story about a guy who is blackmailed by such girl as Nozomi maybe just a typical thing, but then again, since this OVA has a comedy element in it, I guess It would be fair enough that it should have such score. But, let’s not forget that this anime rely on the ecchi element throughout, and that the comedy aspect always depend on the guy.
Art: Great 9.
The score is for the uncensored fanservice, that includes, panty shots, boob flashes and the butt exposure.
Sound: Fair 6.
I don’t give a damned about the opening and closing theme, I just find the VA who did Kimio’s voice nice, the rest of the cast sounded like milfs.
Character: Pathetic 1.
well, what can I say, the guy Kimio is the quintessential pathetic guy who doesn’t know the blessing he has with Nozomi, I mean here you are, you got this bombshell bitch who would be too willing to let you bang her, but he doesn’t, the guy is just some goody 2 shoes fool. There are also other girls present like oppai chan Makino who wouldn’t mind if the guy dig his face on her boobs, Mirei who wouldn’t hesitate to be the mistress and Michiru who wouldn’t mind to have dirty sex with the guy, btw of all the girls she is the one that I mostly like to hate.
Enjoyment: Great 1.
As, I enjoy this anime’s art, it is just natural that my enjoyment stem from the uncensored fanservice, and that’s that.
Overall: Pathetic 1.
I may like the fanservice, but tbh, this OVA isn’t much of any worth and so as the manga where I’m currently at chapter 2. So when watching this, just don’t expect a lot, period.
8: Kizuna: Koi no kara Sawagi
English: Kizuna: Much Ado About Nothing
Japanese: 絆 KIZUNA~恋のから騒ぎ~
MAL Score: 6.67
On his first day of junior high, Kei Enjoji fell in love at first sight. His heart was immediately captured by the gorgeous Ranmaru Samejima, a young kendo prodigy, and the two slowly formed a deep romantic bond. Now adults and living happily together as a couple, things seem to be going well for Ranmaru and Kei.
One morning, host Kei arrives home after a night out drinking with a client. A frequent occurrence, Ranmaru is initially unfazed by Kei’s drunken state—until he notices three extremely suspicious things: Kei’s clothing smells of makeup, his chest is stained with lipstick, and he is carrying matches branded with the name of a love hotel. To top it all off, a woman calls the apartment asking for “Kei-chan,” and at that, Ranmaru loses it.
Hurt by Kei’s unfaithful actions, Ranmaru storms off. He spends the day reminiscing about years of precious memories, deciding to put them behind him for good—and when he is “picked up” by a woman on the streets, he comes to terms with reality. If this is what society wants, and if Kei has truly fallen for a woman, then who is he to stand in their way?
• Is there consent?: Yes. Fully consensual.
• Are they over-age?: Yes
• Seme/Uke: Yes but it’s not as rote, obvious or played up as most yaoi.
• Type of guys: Bishounen, they are typical “seme/uke” looks but not as drastically different in physical build.
• Fetishes: None
• Incest: None
• Smut level: Very low. The sex scene is very brief and you don’t see anything at all. No need for lightsaber penises.
Story & Characters: You can’t always do a lot with just 45 minutes but I feel like this anime did such a great job with ups and downs, backstory and current conflict, character development and resolution. It’s not perfect by any means but it’s well paced and not boring. Once the initial conflict is set up, the characters go off on their own accord and reflect on their past relationship. So through flashbacks, we get to learn how they met, how they got together and surprisingly a sub-plot of the uke battling potential paralysis – which was pretty touching and well-handled. I didn’t expect them to fit this much plot in 45 mins and for it to be done as well as it is. I have a couple of problems…and they are all to do with the last ten minutes or so. Firstly, why does the hotel lock you in your room until you ring to get out? That’s some horror movie hostel sex-slave trade shit and it felt like a lame plot device. Second, the punch at the end seemed a bit excessive for the argument they were having – like calm down, it’s not that serious.
Art & Sound The art holds it back a little, it’s fine but not great. Tbh, it’s up and down. There are some scenes it looks really good but it often looks a bit ropey. But then again what do you expect from a yaoi made in 2001. It’s fine. The sound is cheesy as hell. It actually crossed my mind to drop this anime during the OP! It sounds like bad 70’s porno/elevator music. But it’s so cheesy it’s comical so whatever – I don’t particularly care that much about sound unless it’s god awful and the OST is fine I guess.
Enjoyment/Overall: The selling point of this yaoi is that it’s fully consensual sex between two adults – how often do you get to say that? Almost never. So I can confidently say that if rape/lack of consent or sex involving minors is an issue for you then this gets the all-clear. The main characters are already in a relationship at the beginning of the yaoi so even story line wise it’s something new.
It’s a genuinely good story about a gay relationship that has been through strife and trouble and most importantly, their troubles aren’t really gay-related. They are troubles you might experience in any relationship i.e. health issues/cheating. If you’re new to yaoi then trust me that’s pretty rare. This is by no means a masterpiece at all, it’s a bit cheesy in places but it’s enjoyable enough and a bit different for avoiding the worst of the typical cliché yaoi tropes.
7: D.C. I&II P.S.P. Re-Animated
Japanese: D.C.I&II P.S.P. RE-ANIMATED
MAL Score: 6.67
An OVA bundled with a PSP game Da Capo: D.C. I & II P.S.P. It features animated confession scenes for the four main heroines of the two games, Nemu, Kotori, Yume, and Otome.
6: Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku – Tadoritsuita Basho
Japanese: FORTUNE ARTERIAL 赤い約束 たどり着いた場所
MAL Score: 6.89
After the school festival, Kohei and friends head to a small cottage out of town and enjoy themselves after working hard.
What was I expecting.. It’s an OVA, at best you would get is a bunch fanservice in the form of carefully planned trip to I don’t know, somewhere that you would have to put less to no amount of clothes. So it would be either be a beach, a pool or a hotsprings. Since the first two had been done in the first season, your guesses are correct. HOTSPRINGS! So yeah, all you manly guys out there are ready with your guns but please, put that away, the amount of “fanservice time” given isn’t even barely enough for you to capture a mental image for your manly standards.
Art and music quality is remains the same. So did the opening and ending songs. Yes, you heard me correctly, the OP and ED songs are still the same! If you would just labeled this episode, episode 13 (which somehow feels that way) no one would even complain.
Is there development for characters for this particular episode? Nope, don’t expect to see the love between Erika and Kouhei to develop. He’s still running into her naked. But yeah he escapes with just a smack to the face. Lucky guy. Where I’m from, if I see a real life girl naked, my eyes would get gouged
out. Expect no development on Erika’s vampirsm nature as well.
“What? She’s a vampire??”
Yes for those who did not watch the first season, she is a vampire..
“That would explains why she glitters under the sun!”
Yes that would explain why she….. Wait.. What?
So what’s so enjoyable watching this OVA? If you manage to watch through the entire season, then a little bit more wouldn’t hurt you now would it? Especially somehow, in this episode, the haremic aura seems stronger than usual. Even the Ice Queen, Kuze, falls head over heels for Kouhei. Oh, but he didn’t get the little girl. Something about a new law Japan enact banning lolicon themes? However brother-sister love in still present which means, the law on incest must not be in power yet.
Overall, this was a HAPPY anime no matter how tragic they made it seem. I haven’t seen such a happy anime since Shukufu no Campanella. Attempt to break from the harsh of circle of harem, failed. Does this OVA signal the creation of the second season? Perhaps not. If you have time to kill and you are a fan of the visual novel, they why not waste your time on this OVA? I mean, you probably wasted 5 minutes reading this review, so why not another 25mins?
Going in to an OVA to conclude what has been a disappointment (imo) of a series in Fortune Arterial, I did not hold any real expectation for the OVA. In fact, if it did worse than the series, I would not have been surprised, but turns out, I was surprised in a much different manner.
In short, I gave this OVA a 9 across the boards, simply because it was so much greater than the series for lack of better words. The story that was so jumbled in the series took a more coherent turn for the better, as development of the story takes place. The great thing about this OVA is that the story of it does not focus on one thing, but it incorporated many activities that the group participate in, and we see how it drives the story forward.
Art and Sound were solid, so no complaints.
Character is where this OVA shines. Going a bit back to the story development, I believe it directly tied into character development as we see characters progress substantially from their series counterpart. Characters that were never really explored had a chance to come out and see them for their glory and greatness. I am trying to be as ambiguous as possible so I don’t spoil any part of the OVA, but you will understand by the ending scene how much we see these characters seemingly grow over the course of 20 mins.
For enjoyment, I rated it a 9, just because going in, this would be the last of Fortune Arterial. I was a bit bummed out that there will be no season 2, but I hope others can still enjoy the OVA as much as I did.
Overall, a score of 9 does this OVA justice, especially if we factor in how poorly the series did. As mentioned before, only 20 mins for this OVA. This is definitely worth checking out and worth the effort if you went ahead and already finished the series.
I watched a low-res version of this OVA so I can’t really judge the sharpness/detailing relative to the original. For the most part everything is consistent with the main series but plus the aforementioned ecchi scene.
You get the standard TV OP and ED, same BGM, and same VAs.
This OVA takes place after the events of the TV series where the council (and some others) are relaxing after a successful school festival. They take a trip to a beach house where various activities take place (tennis, onsen, etc.). There isn’t any serious plot behind any of the events and, most unfortunately, no further explanation of how Kouhei will resolve Erika’s little family problem.
There is absolutely no additional character development in this OVA. All you can expect is what results from taking the main cast and plopping them by a lakeside cabin; all characters seem to behave consistent with their personalities in the main series. Except that you’d think Erika and Kouhei would have made some progress by now…
This is your typical “for fans only” OVA. If you liked Fortune Arterial, then this may be a fun addition. Just don’t watch it expecting a more satisfying conclusion.
5: Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi: Kokoro Utsuri no Toukoubi – School Attendance Day
Japanese: いつか天魔の黒ウサギ 心移りの登校日 ~すくーる·あてんだんす·でぃ~
MAL Score: 6.92
Episode bundled with the ninth volume of the Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi novel.
Includes Mirai’s chibi-style dream, body-swapping and a crossover with Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu.
Characters: Mediocre 5.
Since, The characters are still the same with the addition of the 2 guys from the previous original anime who are now students in the same school where Taito and Himea are attending and also under supervision of Gekkou.
Enjoyment and Overall: Good 7.
What can I say, it is all good, not bad for a 1 off OVA. I also like the bit part where Ferris and Ryner from “Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu” had a cameo role where the faced Gekkou’s evil twin, it’s kinda lame, then again, it still adds to the comedy aspect of this OVA
Well the story of a one episode OVA isn´t really what most people come looking for, but never the less, it is there, or at least in a way. Most of the OVA concentrates on a familiar concept of body-switching, which ultimately leads to some comedy moments, however the setting of it all is focused purely on the Itsu-Ten world which is kinda disappointing, considering this is (or at least should have been) a crossover between two different anime. And despite the cheap laughs the fans of the first show will definitely get, the same can´t be said about the DenYuuDen part of the crossover (though I guess you´ll get cheap laughs too), since the DenYuuDen part takes up pretty much the last 5 minutes of the whole OVA, which might bring some people (me included) to question, why did they even bother making a crossover when one show gets a whole episode and the other is just filling up time till the credit-roll. Personally I´d ditch the crossover and make 2 separate OVAs for both series which would probably please way more people than what the authors did here, but hey, not my call.
Yeah, not going to get deep into any of this, why ? Well, pretty much because both shows kept their respected features and thus criticizing something here won´t really make a point now would it ? (If you want detailed descriptions, go read reviews on the actual shows themselves 😉 )
Pretty good really. The OVA itself was funny despite the fact that the nature of body switching plots is kinda over used already. However it was portrayed well in the Itsu-Ten part so, pass. As for the DenYuuDen, well, as a fan of DYD I´m disappointed they got only such short screen time but at least they made it worth it and made the OVA go out in a bang, kinda 😀
Comparing this crossover to those that came before it would be really cruel to it´s final grade since I think it lacked a bit (or a lot) on the whole “crossover” concept. One could easily see the DYD part as one of those short, leftover-time-consuming, mini shows that the old anime used to have at their end, which is not bad, but if you plan to watch it for the DYD part, you´ll just enjoy the last 5 minutes, while those who watch it for Itsu-Ten get the rest. But if you don´t care either way or you like both shows, it´s a win/win.
(P.S. NOTE: I know this is considered (and called) a Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi OVA thus the show should logically get priority in screentime BUT they branded this as a crossover thus I treated it that way in the review 😉 )
4: D.C.if: Da Capo if
Japanese: D.C.if ダ カーポ イフ
MAL Score: 7.15
This two episode OVA retelling of the first Da Capo series with the “what if” Junichi Asakura were to return Kotori Shirakawa’s feelings.
Da Capo: If is a Harem, Romantic, Comedy, Drama(?) that follows the same old story as its previous incarnations, not sure where it fits into the timeline though. Junichi is a guy who has somehow attracted a large female following. Although this time round the magical aspect is played down and Kotori fans are offered some fanservice, since the all important “what if he ends up with Kotori?” question is answered. Like most of the people who preferred Kotori, amongst the Da Capo girls, I was expecting great things from this short OVA. Yet it comes to no surprise that this turned out to be quite the disappointment. Yet what really surprised me was that the whole thing felt like it was too long and that became its major downfall. The story literally begins with Kotori about to get married and we’re supposed to flashback to see how it came to pass. But sadly the writers decided to pad the story with clichés, you will see coming a mile off and pointless character interactions.
The characters are the same as ever however after sitting through 4 series; seeing the same old faces, with their rather annoying quirks (banana girl) can be more tiresome than paying attention to a dull Math’s lecture. So whatever characters you liked in the previous Da Capo series, you will like here and whatever character didn’t like… just don’t expect shift in your own opinion.
Sadly this is the same case with the animation and soundtrack, as they have both remained unchanged. Not to forget that this is from the style of the Da Capo series & not the Da Capo II series, so everything just looks & sounds older than it should be. At least the die-hard fans of the Da Capo series will get a sense of nostalgia after hearing the 2 insert songs used.
Overall Da Capo If did give an answer to a question that I’ve had on my mind since starting the series… was it a good answer? You tell me. All I know was that it was dragged on with the most trivial issue imaginable; making the drama it was supposed to have, quite laughable. At least the romance was rather refreshing and having a story focusing on Junichi & Kotori was a great idea however one thing I would like to know… what on earth happened to Nemu?
That’s it 🙂
This is a 2 episode OVA that plays with the alternate path where Shirakawa wins, much like the KGNE OVA where Haruka wins. Sadly, this attempt falls short of where I had hoped for it to be. Yes you have your original Da Capo cast and yes the music and scenery all looks familiar, but the awesome, gripping story of Da Capo is all but missing.
The animation style is the same as the original animation and the quality is fairly good. There are one or two places where I noticed an inconsistency in the drawing but otherwise it was fairly well done. The colors/scenery fit the mood quite well and, well, Kotori is Kotori.
An interesting OP and ED (in episode 1)… the OP is new but reminiscent of other Da Capo OPs and the ED is not much. BGM is traditional Da Capo love it or hate it style. VA cast is the same as the original so you get your Yui Horie.
The jumping off point in this show is somewhere in the middle of DC SS, so you should probably watch up through DC SS for much of this to make sense.
The story starts off with the ending of the OVA before jumping back in time (I wasn’t sure at first which was quite confusing) and working forwards again.
It’s known from the start that Kotori is getting her man, but in traditional Da Capo style they throw in a little drama. Sadly, the attempt at drama was a bit nonsensical and the characters’ reactions over the top. Think of KGNE Next Season’s plot twist but over a much more meaningless reason.
The resolution to the conflict is likewise pitifully made up, and it seemed like they just wanted to find a way for Yui Horie to sing a song. In any case, this part was the real downer in this short OVA.
The characters are well defined/developed in the original show by this point so there isn’t too much to be expected here. It’s really difficult to separate characters/story, especially if the character’s development is pretty much the story… But leaving that in the story section, the overall characters were (other than the horrible story) true to their original nature.
There are some cute scenes and moments worthy of the Da Capo name, but the rest of it fell short, leaving much to be desired.
3: Kimi no Hikari: Asagao to Kase-san.
English: Your Light: Kase-san and Morning Glories
Japanese: キミノヒカリ ～あさがおと加瀬さん。～
MAL Score: 7.25
“Please. I hope Kase-san likes me…”
Yamada is a shy second-year high school girl who is a member of the greenery committee. Kase from the class next to hers is a beautiful girl who is the ace of the school’s track team. As a result of the morning glories planted by Yamada, the distance between the two people who have never exchanged words shrinks little by little.

There’s no story, which makes sense considering this is a promotional video, it’s not supposed to spoil any part of the story. Anyways, there is no development. The whole anime is just 2 girls spending time together. There’s a short part in which we are shown a dramatic scene which I’m sure makes perfect sense in the manga, but in here it’s an isolated scene, and we are not provided with any context, so it kind of comes off weird, stupid, and pointless?
Same things with the characters, the video shows off nothing more than “cuteness”. I liked the short haired girl tho, cause I have a fetish for masculine females, but yeah, it didn’t really make the characters any better.
A decent song which provides you with a pleasant mood while watching this completely pointless OVA that felt like an AMV, which it kind of was, or not really, who cares…
So why am I even writing this review? Why do we do anything at all? Does anything even matter?
If there’s one thing you can take out from this review, it’s the fact that I’m attracted to masculine females.
The whole thing is aesthetically pleasing, the animation is nothing special, but the stuff like character design and background art are forceful. From watching this I’d definetly start reading the manga if I wasn’t doing so already. The music is your generic mellow J-Pop song, but I honestly wouldn’t expect any other type of music from something like this.
The only real problem is that although it classifies as “anime”, it doesn’t really have much substance by itself, it only really works because it’s just a promotional video.
Bottom line, as an anime, is meh, but as promotional video (which it’s the only thing this should be considered as) it’s pretty damn good. And in the vain of promotion, go read the manga! It’s a cute and lovely yuri manga with some melodrama here and there, definetly worth your time.
2: Sukitte Ii na yo.: Dareka ga
MAL Score: 7.26
Mei, Aiko, Asami, and Nagi are making cookies at Mei’s house. Knowing that the process could take a while, Nagi chases Yamato out of the house. He receives a text from Kai, who asks him if he wants to meet up at the park. When Yamato arrives, it is revealed that the rundown park was where the two of them first talked and bonded for the first time. After bantering a bit, Kai asks Yamato why he, who had always seemed to be having fun with a large crowd around him, was always the first one at the park after school. Yamato admits that he used to feel like he was a chameleon; someone who didn’t have his own personality and just changed himself to please others. Kai tells Yamato that he used to hate the town, but thanks to Yamato, he now finds it to be beautiful. Kai reassures him that he is his own person, and Yamato confesses that after he met Mei, he realized just how lonely he was. Kai later runs into Megumi at the bus stop. They start talking, and Kai tells her that he thinks she’s cool for staying true to herself while modelling. Megumi snaps back at him, and Kai, offended, leaves. When Momo comes, Megumi regrets lashing out on Kai and later becomes embarrassed when Momo suggests that Megumi likes him. At Mei’s house, the cookies are done and turn out to be delicious. Mei’s mom shoos Mei and Yamato out of the house. Yamato hugs Mei and tells her he’s glad she’s with him. They watch the sunset together before continuing their walk, holding hands.
Story: it starts when Aiko,Asami and Nagisa helping Mei makeing cookies for Yamato and then we see Yamato talking with Kai and talk about the past and opened for each other and we got to Kai and Megum talking to each other about her life >> I know that not a story per say but regardless it was a good episode none the less
Art: it was superb none the less
Sound: it was good suit it for the episode and for the moments
Character: you have to watch the series because this an extend of it .. but there Kai and Megum develop feelings for each others (Ps: i wanna see spin off for those two make it now )
Enjoyment: i am really enjoy it and i hope a second Ova or third … after i finish it i felt i need to watch the series again
Overall: It’s good Ova for an awesome series i recommend everyone to watch the series and the Ova
1: Asagao to Kase-san.
English: Kase-san and Morning Glories
MAL Score: 7.72
Yui Yamada, a high school girl with a fondness for plants and gardening, starts dating Tomoka Kase, the ace of her school’s track team. Yui is shy, girly, and has never been in a relationship. On the other hand, Tomoka is vivacious, tomboyish, and popular among her friends. Despite being different in so many ways, they try to understand and support each other while experiencing the rush of exhilaration that accompanies the magic of first love.
Asagao to Kase-san is a heartwarming tale of two girls dealing with their ever-increasing feelings for each other along with other concerns that plague the hearts of maidens in love.
Although I love this movie, there is little story until towards the end, which is why I gave it a lower rating. The art and music is absolutely amazing. I fell in love with both the main characters, Yamada and Kase. Every moment of them interacting with each other just gave me such a great feeling.
Overall, Kase-san had me laughing, crying, and very happy. I really related to this movie, especially since I am in a long distance relationship. It had me wanting to hug her so bad! This movie is a must watch for all yuri fans.
The agonizing wait for a good vanilla yuri anime has ended. Asagao to Kase-san brilliantly delivers a finely crafted lesbian love story, with romance and drama blended in perfect proportion.
Vanilla yuri fans have had a rough time when it comes to original anime or adaptations. Although there have been tons of series with undertones of lesbian relationships, outright and/or serious lesbian romance hasn’t really graced anime since Sasameki Koto and Aoi Hana (2009) or Sakura Trick (2014). With the recent advent of adaptations of derivative yuri series Netsuzou Trap and Citrus, I had hoped that this would herald a revival in good old vanilla yuri romance.
And it did with this fantastic OVA. Let’s talk about it.
The story in itself isn’t anything special or new. Two girls fall in love with each other – one is more experienced, the other incredibly naive – and they go through the highs and the lows of their relationship. The first couple of scenes establish their relationship very quickly (thank goodness), so the rest of the anime focuses on the nuances of an already established romance. It is wonderfully paced, giving the viewer balanced proportions of sweet fluff and substantial drama and conflict in turns. The conflicts come up very organically and feel very natural in the course of the characters’ relationship, and they’re interspersed with sweet scenes that paint the relationship with further detail. The climax of the story is nothing new, but it was built up and executed well. As a result, the anime is a very tidy hour-long package, smoothly summarizing multiple volumes of the manga in a well-paced and well-executed manner.
The OVA is finely crafted, with excellent art style, music, and voice acting. The characters look and sound incredible, and animation is excellent – you can feel the emotions displayed by the characters from the screen. Music comes up appropriately and with impact, further tempering the mood being expressed in the scenes. Such great execution was very critical to enjoying the story being presented in this OVA.
I actually do not share the complaints of this OVA being too short or not covering enough material. It covered very pertinent strains of the manga and stands alone very well as a fantastic summary of the series. In fact, I had not read the manga before watching this and had a very effortless viewing experience despite my lack of prior knowledge.
If Asagao to Kase-san is any indication of what the future holds for vanilla yuri romance, I am incredibly excited. What the OVA lacks in novelty it more than makes up with solid execution of a high-quality vanilla yuri plot, making for a highly enjoyable romantic anime.
A quick list of some of the very obvious problems with this anime:
– SHALLOW characters: Yamada is literally just the insecure, innocent, shy girl. That’s everything about her character. She loves Kase, because she is nice? She gardens because why not give her a random hobby. The friend, while being my favorite character, is still basically just the stereotypical spunky friend, with glasses because why not. Kase doesn’t even have a personality, she just runs fast, is popular, and loves Yamada because why not. The only personality traits she exhibits is that she is “nice” and she is dense as a brick when it comes to their relationship (although that is obviously just plot reasons).
– SHALLOW, STUPID, PREDICTABLE story: Shy girl loves the popular girl. Jealous of the attention she gets. Acts shy. Other girl has a misunderstanding, think she doesn’t love her. Makeup. Rinse and repeat. Then towards graduation end it with “I’ll follow you to Tokyo”. Literally the whole story.
– REDUNDANT, OBVIOUS Exposition: She repeats herself multiple times in monologue saying when she started dating Kase & that she loves her. Why? Just show the damn story.
– CONTRIVED Plot & Conflict: Misunderstandings only absolute idiots would have just to further the conflict. Also, they come to the point of tears before communicating at all. Just ask her if something is wrong, stupid. Also, dumb random things. You could clearly see the view of the clouds out of any of the windows, but she was like “You have to see this.” Dumb af. Apparently texting somebody in the middle of the night, and them not responding, should be enough to cause drama. Also, the way they make the ending sound was so stupidly predictable.
– LOOSE ENDS & NO CHAR DEV: The little bit of drama, conflict, and character development that might have been dealt with was just left hanging. Yamada never really faced her briefly explored issues of jealousy and trust (proving the relationship was shallow at best). She basically went to Tokyo because she thought Kase would move on, not because she actually was just going to miss her. It was clearly a selfish motivation (or else she would have said something along the lines of “I don’t want Kase to feel lonely” which she didn’t). She also never addressed her naivety and innocence (Made painfully clear when she didn’t know what “do it” meant). They just never brought it up again and she stayed the same sheltered child. Kase never got to truly explore a deeper relationship with Yamada even.
-ENDED RIGHT WHEN THE STORY GOT INTERESTING: The normally innocent shy girl made the rash decision of following her love to Tokyo, and has to deal with acclimating and actually getting into a college there. Kase, who spent the whole OVA trying to deepen their relationship, finally got the step forward she wanted, and their relationship could finally step beyond the shallow bits of high school puppy love. That should have been the rising action, the real start of the story, not the conclusion.
So yeah, it was trash everywhere except the art and VA.
EDIT: I responded to a comment about this review and it made me think of a good point. My review of Asagao to Kase-san may be a bit heavy-handed, but part of that has been because of how well received it was. If I am watching fan service nonsense, I am expecting a shallow experience with no substance. Kase-san’s reviews betray it, making the experience similar to diving head first in a shallow pool. It makes it shallowness that much more unbearable and revolting.
