Characters & Voice Actors
Considering how much I personally enjoyed the main series itself, when I heard about this OVA, I was looking forward to it. I expected to see the cast solving a gift game with the same suspenseful, yet somehow comedic feel of the main series. Instead, I was met with a HUGE amount of fan-service that seemed to be the main focus of the episode. I mean, I expected at least one battle scene.
Comparing the story and plot of this episode to the main series makes me cringe. While the main series had an objective and reasonable plot devices, this lacks it all.
The OVA is filled with absurdly perverted scenes that seem out of place and irrational, along with stock "bad guys" for the introduction. Those "bad guys" don't even end up playing a significant part in the rest of the episode, and their only purpose seems to be to show off the ability of the main cast.
If you were to watch five minutes of the middle portion, it would be nearly impossible to guess what the main characters' objectives are, considering that the episode was filled with almost nothing but fanservice.
Although the close-up looks of the characters seems to be the same quality as always, static images and re-used frames are easy to notice. The voices are not synced with the mouths as they were during the main series, and the stock villains during the beginning look absolutely terrible. The producers would have fared better if they used dark silhouettes. I'm not sure if this was due to budget problems, but it seems so.
Thankfully, the sound quality hasn't changed from the main series, and You's character song can be heard in the background during one portion. It may have been the first time I've heard it in a Mondaiji episode, but it really fit the mood and tone of the situation quite well.
The new characters in the OVA are forgettable, at best. The characterization of the others is done quite well, and the focus is shifted off of Izayoi for once. You's mischievous nature is highlighted, as well as her insatiable appetite, and Ayesha can be seen to be more competitive, but in a less obnoxious way. The other characters don't get too much characterization opportunities, but this is fine, considering the amount of attention they received during the main series.
Let me just say this now. I HATE fanservice. It detracts from the main story, and in this episode, the producers seemed to say, "Hey, you know what the main series didn't have? Fanservice. Let's try and fill an entire series' worth of it in this episode then."
Regardless of the fanservice in this episode, some parts were still quite enjoyable, like the characterization moments. It was a lot of fun finding out more things about their personalities, and also watching them clear the games with each other. It would be a lot more enjoyable without the fanservice, but hey, that's just me.
The OVA doesn't do justice to the main series. The only reason the OVA didn't get a worse score is because of the things is could get from the main series, like the OP, ED, and most of the characters. Everything else, including the story and art, seems to be much lower quality. read more
Ok, so I've just finish this single ep OVA. I must say that this OVA qualifies as a misplaced episode of the parent anime "Mondaiji," so everything about it was the usual except for the fanservice that we never get to see from the parent anime. It was still disappoint, thought that there is no Kurousagi's panty shot and most of it was limited to a school swimsuit fanservice, though, there is that fundoshi fanservice which was limited to a few seconds, man, why didn't studio Diomedea made Kurousagi to be in a bikini instead of being in a one piece swimsuit, she would have look hotter? So my ratings for each of this anime's category:
Story: mediocre 5.
Since, the plot maybe a bit different, but it still follows the parent anime's genre.
Art: fair 6.
Thought, the addition of the fanservice is good, it ain't that intense, co'z there is no Kurousagi panty shot and the boob flash ain't much.
Sound: mediocre 5.
Co'z it still uses the same VA's and the same op and ed theme.
Character: mediocre 5.
Enjoyment: fair 6.
Like I said, the fanservce especially the school swimsuit part was good, it's just wasn't that intense, even with the girls fundoshi fanservice. Thought, it was nice to see Izayoi doing his thing.
Overall: mediocre 5.
Pretty much a misplaced filler episode, unless this OVA is an introduction for a season 2 of the parent anime,but, we have yet to know if there will be one.
No recommendations have been made yet. Come on, make one!
