OVA that came with the PlayStation 2 game "School Days L×H"
Makoto, Sekai, Kotonoha, and many other classmates all go to a hot springs hotel to relax, where they discuss what their plans are for the upcoming Valentine's Day. When the day actually comes, half a dozen girls fight over who gets to give chocolate to Makoto.
well this was a OK OVA about the main series school days. you have 3 girls who like the main character and one overly helpful mom and one crazy little girl. this was certainly a little different than the theme of the main story(they kept the knifes).
the story is pretty much about girls giving chocolates to mokoto for valentines day.
Like the another OVA of title, "Magical Heart Kokoro-chan", this is comedy. Unlike it, this isn't funny. You can say, "plot isn't so stupid and childish like MHKC, so why it's should be worse?" Because seeming seriousness completely ruins all its attempts to be funny, while the stupidity (the real one, not flashy as in MHKC) doesn't let to perceive it like a sensible story. In the end there is my favourite tune of title name inserted (no other word for this), which is the keynote, the summary of the original series, the expression of all the mood, all the characters hopes and aspirations... And it makes no sense, since OVA has no hopes, no aspirations, no mood but the silliest one.
The bottom line — Valentine Days is filler episode outside a series. It's not clear what this been done for, but if you've been so attached to the characters that any parting makes you suffer, this would fit as another dose... But how long can you stand it?read more
I still say that the art and sound is good each given 7. So, now basically, they made this anime much more funnier and more enjoyable than compared to the anime itself. I love it when Makoto gets tortured by girls who gave him chocolate.
However, the fact remains is that I am still not symapthetic towards all the characters in School Days. Nice try but no win. 2/10
It's supposed to be lighthearted and comical but under the surface bubbles the same sinister feeling of the original School Days. That may be because although the story is told through Valentine's chocolates the characters, their motivations and their behavior remain roughly the same. You pretty much have the same story told in 18 minutes. Does it end in the same manner? Pretty much. You'll see.
It' self-aware, filled with tropes and a strange counter-point to the original. Genius.
Pretty cool Makoto quotes in here as well. An odd way to finish up your time with School Days but it works.
