BUNGAKU SHOUJO MEMOIRE 2ND OVA REVIEW. (the other OVAs bring the series down, The only interesting is this one)

A few months back I saw a OVA prequel of a light novel called Bungaku shoujo, at the time I wasn’t quite sure of what was I getting into, but I was pleasantly surprised by it, I decided to watch it because I was looking for a more dark perspective on the romance genre and that’s what I got for most part, I even watched the movie who pales comparing it to the prequels but that’s a topic for another day, keep in mind these OVA´s read more

As soon as the words came out that Bungaku Shojo was going to be animated as a film and OVA trilogy, I was very excited to hear the news as one of the loyal fans of the Bungaku Shojo light novel series. The opening theme of the OVA gave me a initial impression that was very positive; not only it was a good way of introducing the major characters in the novel, but it was also visually pleasing, especially with the surreal background of sunset shining on Amano’s face with a slight red hue and the beautifully-rendered colored marbles flowing out of Amano’s hands. Later, read more

Edit: This review is for the first of the three OVAs for this series.

Bungaku Shōjo Memoire, a three part OVA series produced by Production I.G., is the prequel for the recently released Bungaku Shoujo Movie. Although it is a three part OVA series, each OVA by itself is a standalone OVA with little direct connection with each other. The first episode of this OVA series, titled Yume Miru Shoujo no Prelude, focuses on the story of Touko Amano (天野遠子), the main heroine in the subsequent movie.

Also, a little note here: I have NOT read the original light novel source material, so you could say that read more

-Difference between Koitabi is all different characxters, but Bungaku revolves around the main character and three different girls love stories
-Heartwarming
Similar stories, but 5cm is a bit more "silent and beautiful" while Bungaku is "cute and funny". Both have very nice art.

Definitely feels similar , very identical character design and also some plot similarities , the main heroins are very alike in personalities.
The compositions are similiar in the character and scenery designs as well as anime genres. Shugo Chara!'s leading episodes comprised of issues and struggles amongst the characters which is prominent in all 3 of Bungaku Shoujo Memoire's OVAs. Amu Hinamori's tsundere personality is similiar to Nanase Kotubuki's. Utau's bangs seems quite like Miu's though their personalities stand in stark contrast.

Note: The Bungaku Shoujo gets darker than Shugo Chara!
The plot of Bungaku Shoujo revolves around literature and mentions several works by Miyazawa Kenji. Night on the Galactic Railroad plays a crucial role in Miu's story (in the second episode) when she tells the story to Konoha Inoue.
