Orihara Kouhei returns to his town after a long disappearance to fullfil the promises he made to several girls in his childhood. He suffered from memory loss, and carries a tragic past. An strange ambience surrounds the OVA...It's almost like a dream, like memories from the past trying to come together in one piece but without being able to...

I will put this plain and simple. This is an OVA intended for those who have played the game(One Kagayagku Kisetsu e). For those who don't know the game was a pivitol piece which started the whole so-called Nakige genre and lead to the creation of Key.

Putting aside introduction, overall the OVA is average, nothing stands out about it, but it does what an OVA is suppose to do, animate a bits of the game for the fans of the game. In this case, the OVA covers essentially the ends of the different scenarios, which is probably why everyone finds read more

When Winston Smith was brought into Room 101 in 1984, he was forced to face his greatest fear, rats, and in doing so, he betrayed his love and solidified Big Brother's grip on him. He loved Big Brother because that was all his crushed spirit could possibly see.

One is my Room 101 anime. O'Brien would strap me into that chair, fit the wire cage on my head and I'd have blind girls, pretentious ghosts and a fountain of tears struggling to form. But unlike Winston, I would not give in. My spirit would not be crushed. Onii-sama would not have me in his mad clutches. read more

Both visual novel turned Animes with the same sort of concept of the female love arcs, Both have mysterious storyline, only bug with One is that you might want to look at the plot of the VN before you watch the OVA's
Both are by key and kanon is also better than the ONE ova by something by a factor of 10 x 2^56.

Also I reccomend the ONE game, it is great.
