Overall it was bad. Seems like there was no new ideas put into it. They stuffed the drama into this anime like it was nothing. The story went at a pace 10x faster than anything I have seen before. Also the relationships between the main character and the girls is really rushed. VERY CLICHE.
Art is decent not very good art quality but its worse than probably 80% of the other anime out there released in 2003 and later.
Didn't pay attention so I guess that means it was just background music with not much meaning. The music fit the scenes but wasn't anything special
already stated very rushed. the main characters story is confusing at the beginning and the watcher has to fill in the blanks. Characters are much like any other romance/drama. boy likes girl, girl likes boy. thats all.
only thing pulling me through this was the fact it is only 3 episodes. Like i said almost no enjoyment compared to the listed anime above.
Could have been MUCH better but it feels like the company just wanted some extra cash or something. not much depth to the characters and the story was terrible. read more
This OVA focus on Tomoya life after the death of his girlfriend Ayaka.It tells what happen to Tomoya if he choose this or that girl and moving on with a new life. Each episode starts off decently and end off well.The problem with the story is that it got excessive flashback. I'm fine with flashbacks but this was way too much. However the story is good but you won't be really impressed by it as its quite short. If they just focus about the days about Tomoya with his girlfriend Ayaka I would give a better rating.
Seriously for an animation in 2001-2002 it was really badly done. It was like watching an anime in the 90s.At some point it was good and sometimes it was really bad. The animation do not have much detail on the background.
Moreover, the lips do not match the voice acting.
The OP was alright but I did enjoy the ED song. Its more of average. The sound used in between the OVA was very typical. The voice acting was also alright nothing much to be impress about.
The Main Tomoya seems like a plain character not much of a depth even after you know his past.It's very average for a main. Most of the characters here was alright but they got good developments with the main character. Ayaka probably had a better story than the rest of them.
At first it was really good after that it gets very drama and somehow I feel that it can be better.Most of ending of the episode was good still enjoyable.
So for a drama and romance show it's isn't a bad show but I think that it could been better.Watch it if your really bored or a fan of this visual novel game. Do not expect much from it. read more
Reading the synopsis I assumed "hey, this might actually be a decent watch given that it is 3 episodes and I just want something quick to watch out of the corner of my eye while I do other stuff."
Yeah, no. the series was utterly cliche, but in fairness I did kind of expect that.
The art? Looked like something out of a low budget adult animated series.
The sound? Honestly, that was probably the best bit out of the whole thing, I quite enjoyed the music. Though I usually enjoy the music in every series simply because I enjoy music.
Character development. Oh. HERE we go. It's 3 episodes long. Character development? No such thing. The first episode was basically 12 episodes of a similar romance series crammed into one rushed low quality episode with awful art, and what may be the worst voice acting I've heard since the Bible Black dub.
As something to watch because you have no time and just want a quick 3 episodes or something, I would tell you to watch this, but then I would remember you might as well watch 3 episodes of a series that is actually halfway decent and then finish it later. read more
