There are job classes, though without the particular outfits and there are four crystals as in practically every Final Fantasy. The plot features the quest to protect the wind crystal after the others are stolen by a new enemy, a strange alien with advanced technology whose base is located in the black moon, a natural satellite of planet Gaia.
The story has its fair share of humor and amusing characters especially Pritz and Rogue. The plot is easy to understand even if you haven't played the game, but the references would be lost.
Overall it seems this anime has received more criticism than praise, possibly because people expected a sequel with more connections to the game. But if you look at it as a strand alone Final Fantasy story, it's not bad.
The art and sound are not the best, but to be fair the anime is rather old and has decent art for its time. Despite it not being one of the best anime out there, it's still enjoyable and I recommend watching it with an open mind, being ready to judge it on its own instead of holding it against the game. read more

Theres a few simple catagories to this...
Did you play Final Fantasy 5...if no go to the next question...If yes, did you enjoy it?
If you did enjoy playing final fantasy 5, watch this, it's an additional extra to it.
If you didn't then don't consider this BUT, if you havn't even played final fantasy 5 but you like other final fantasies then I think you should give this a try...it's pretty much a continuation from final fantasy 5, would have alot more meaning if you have completed final fantasy 5 the game. read more

The story is midly confusing (probably attributable to the short lenght and its links to the games) and moves quite quickly in places which certainly doesn't help those with no game knowledge, but that doesn't really detract from the overall experience.
This OVA is pretty much carried by its characters, which were interesting, varied and utterly insane: from a block-headed protagonist (who nevertheless remains endearing, despite his occasional displays of stupidity); S and M pirates (terrifyingly hilarious); the nose hair guy (also terriyingly hilarious, especially when the romance starts).
If you've played the games or know much about Final Fantasy in general, you will probably watch it with different eyes, but for a novice like me, I found this a thoroughly rib-tickling (for those who've seen it, pun intended) little series. read more

The main character is the typical loud mouthed "I have a crush the heroine" type of character, but he is somewhat heroic. It's his determination and persistence that gets him involved in the story at all. His crush on the heroine of the tale is the driving factor and it has some cool little events.
All in all it's an average anime but not necessarily something you should skip. read more
