Synopsis

Originally an April's Fool in 2007, this one episode OVA is a spin-off of the School Days game by 0verflow, and shows Kokoro Katsura, the little sister of one of the main characters, from her other side. A mahou shoujo out to save the world, or something like that.

To start off- unlike it's parent series, this OVA was indeed meant to punk the audience in an April Fools frenzies. I would say it takes place somewhere inside the actual series before crap actually went down. Reason- it still shows how happy Makoto and Kotonoha are and a still jealous Sekai. Also on comparing it to its parent series- it does keep the bit of blood and gore and minor nudity and perversion.

Now- unlike the fellow series it has it's own twist that makes the series go into the state of most anime series- all the same characters....but all (for the most part) happy read more

The School Days series is one of my favourite and most hated anime all at once. Such a shocking tale of lies and deceit that could be easily turned into a day time soap opera.

Magical Heart Kokoro-chan was nothing like this. While using the same characters as School days, this OVA is nothing like its parent show. It is infact the story of a team of superheroes sent to fight against an evil super villain hell bent on turning the entire population of the town in to perverted lecherous zombies.

This is one anime that is so bad is is actually good.. If you have watched read more

The first impressions I had about this OVA weren’t really favorable. Because of the ridiculousness of the original anime, I didn’t expect much other than another not-so-good parody of the magical girl genre and I wasn’t expecting this OVA to be serious in the slightest. This is only one episode so a lot was going to be as packed in as possible.

However, I was met with exactly those expectations. It seemed they aged up Kokoro to make it appropriate for the animators to draw her in sexy clothes and sexy gear and to show off the panty shots. This OVA is very unapologetic about their read more

After that oppressive feelings of School Days TV some may want to relax and some may want to prolong acquaintance with beloved characters. And this OVA meet the both wishes!
This thing may seem the mediocre mahou-shojo story. In fact it is, but in parody form, for the everything: mahou-shoujo itself, School Days original plot, deadly seriousness, even the broadcasting issues. Not necessarily you would laugh at it, but the worldly-wise smile will constantly be on your face for sure. It's great way to take a new look on your favourite title.
And what else is needed?

Anime: Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE!
"Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE!" / "Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!" and "School Days: Magical Heart Kokoro-chan" are both comedic parodies of the magical girl genre, where the protagonists fight against equally ridiculous villains in equally ridiculous premises under the name of justice and love.

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha
Both are magical girl spin-offs starring little sisters from eroge adaptations, with some mecha influences. The major difference lies in that Magical Heart Kokoro-chan is a parody OVA while Nanoha is an actual magical girl series.

Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira
This is mostly for the second episode of Higurashi: Kira -- but if you like this one magical girl AU spinoff OVA of a gory and violent anime, perhaps you will like this other one.

Anime: Tentai Senshi Sunred
Similar sense of humor.Nonsense things happen in even more surreal genre, sentai movie parody. Different is Sunred has it own storyline while Kokoro-chan act as stress reliever after 12 episode of depressing anime.
