Title: Dead Girls

Anime: Gonzo did the production on this again (known for their work on Saikano and Gankutsuou) and Kou Matsuo directed as well (known for his work on all seasons of Rozen Maiden and the OVA). Dead Girls is a 45-minute OVA that was released on August 8th, 2007. As far as I'm aware, Dead Girls has not been licensed, either by ADV, or Funimation (who currently holds the original series' license).

Dead Girls picks up about 300 years in the future in NYC, where Rachel, Rose, Kate and Claire are pretending to be high school girls as cover for bounty hunting, because read more

The original Red Garden anime contained the same sort of issue that is found in many series: while the main plot was resolved, there were many unanswered questions. Given the often horrific nature of the series, this wasn't necessarily a bad thing -- what's scarier than the unknown? -- but the addition of an OVA nonetheless provided the opportunity for more explanation and closure.

Dead Girls takes place years after the end of the original series. Our four heroines are, naturally, still alive and without memories of the first seventeen years of their lives. Not knowing who they were or why they can never die, they've read more

I really like this OVA. I watched it right after finishing red garden and after the immediate shock I quickly grew to enjoy everything about the OVA. It's quite radically different from the show and might turn people off. I would like to encourage others to try looking at the OVA without comparing it to the series but I know that would be quite difficult. It was because I did such that I was able to enjoy the OVA so much. That's why I would first recommend the OVA to someone who's never seen the series rather than someone who has.

Story-wise, the plot hardly makes any sense at all. Near the end of the series, the girls have the contact information of their families, and photos of friends and family in their pockets, yet they don't seem to have contacted their families, or even recognize any of the reincarnations they encounter. As for the mystery of Red Garden,, they would have known at least, that they were students on the island, since they had their student IDs on their bodies when they lost their memories. All mysteries about their immortal bodies would have been easily answered by Paula, who knew where they read more

Anime: Shamanic Princess
Both can be considered a "serious" version of the magical girl genre
The Ova version es more action oriented, and doesn't give many explination just like the first part od shamanic princess
