Synopsis

Asagiri Yohko is an ordinary high school student, and she is in love with a boy who does not know it. To help things along, she has written a song to explain how she feels but that song has quite a bit more than a couple of good bridges.

Yohko learns that while she is listening to her song, she is transported to Earth's other-dimensional sister world "Ashanti." This song has the potential to open a gateway between Earth and Ashanti wide enough for a conquering force to invade and take over. And it is exactly why it was forbidden eons ago by the legendary warrior Leda who saw this coming.

This Leda warrior's duty now falls to Yohko and some newfound friends to stop the onslaught and return the 2 worlds in balance.

Maybe Yohko is not so ordinary after all.

This was a strange bit of 80s nostalgia for me.

As another review noted, this feels like it was intended as a pilot movie for a magical girl series that was never made. The main character, animal companion, and sidekick are all introduced. The setting is established, and then they have a short adventure. Afterwards the main girl returns to Earth, but they make a point of saying that she can come back. An open ending that was never followed up on.

That said, while the characters, music, and plot are all bog standard 80s OVA anime, the art itself is very distinctive. This is a trippy read more

The first impression I had about this particular anime is it didn’t strike me as a magical girl OVA and just more of medieval/fantasy story. Since this particular OVA was released during the 1980s, I wondered if it’s going to have any of the ridiculousness and cheese that American movies had in their own media that was present at this time. Although, looking at the promotional art and some screencaps, the art is extremely gorgeous and it’s something that definitely appeals to me. The only thing, though, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I actually do.

Since this is only one OVA, I’m read more

If I could describe this title in two words, those would be “wasted potencial”. It appears to be a summary of a series that was never made. It packed a nice (but not a great) premice.

ART & SOUND SECTION: 6/10
The title has an ok quality when it comes to animation and sound. Rather crude but nicely detailed graphics. Rather dry but decent music and voice acting. The motion fluidity in the action scenes and the smart camera angles create an interesting atmosphere, as everything feels quite dangerous and gloomy.

STORY & CHARACTER SECTION: 4/10
The description on the main page pretty much covers the story. It is read more

I feel like I liked this more than I should. I mean the plot is pretty bare bones and kind of dumb, but there's something weirdly charming about the package as a whole. The world is distinctive and well designed, and after watching n a whole bunch of 80s OVAs lately, it's really nice to see mechs that aren't just designed to look like they came out of Gundam or Macross. That said, what really elevates this into something decent is the direction. Yuyama kept this whole thing surprisingly atmospheric, and he gave us some pretty good action setpieces. read more

Recommendations

In both anime the heroine gets transported in another world where she finds out that she is a legendary warrior and that she must fight against an evil ruler.

The visual style and general feel of both works is very similar. Both involve extended chase sequences with odd looking robots and moderatly cryptic philosophy masked by their manic tone.
reportRecommended by Galap - Add to favorites
Heroines fight against evil in worlds of fantasy and some advanced technology, and they wear skimpy outfits. They're also both 1985 OVAs.
