Looking back at the original Green Green this is quite a disappointment. The character designs have stayed the same, most of the time, but the overall quality of the animation has dropped. They used very simple backgrounds and plain colours. Though this isn't all that bad. It's quite nice to watch since it doesn't strain your eyesight in any way.
The stronger point of this OVA. Fairly good OP and ED, and non-existent background music. However it's nothing to boast about compared to the music used in the original.
Is there an actual story to this? Don't think so. It's basically turned around; the boys visit the girls this time. But since this is only one 26 minute OVA you can't expect too much. The story overall doesn't add anything.
Most of the characters are the same as in the original. Some are changed, more like brought down to earth. Of course, less characters get screen time, but this is no surprise hence the length. As for character development, null. Furthermore nearly all of the characters seem rather dull and emotionless. Quite poor overall...
This was quite bad. It should be distributed as a freebie, even though I doubt that someone would want to get this. It adds nothing to the whole Green Green experience.
On a side note, I feel bad writing such a short review, however there really isn't much to write about. read more
It's visible that the artist either just tried copying the previous artist forcing himself to draw or just someone very incompetent was hired to do this job. Obviously not enough effort has been used for making of this episode.
The idea of the story itself in the anime is actually pretty good. The fact that it's an alternate reality and the characters don't know each other, isn't. God knows what gave the directors such an awful idea. The plot seems forced, especially the parts involving love. Midori doesn't know Yuusuke here, so her falling in love with him in a matter of a week barely talking without the element present in the series (the love transcending death itself) is out of the question. Then how did that happen? And it's just one among many failures in this single OVA.
Most of the characters are nearly totally opposite of the real characters from the series. Where's Tenjin's pervertedness? Since when are the girls impressed by Socho, not scared? Haruno is all moral all of a sudden. And there's much more! Just these I mentioned are seen straight from the very first minutes of the OVA. Near all wrong. A big failure, because it's the characters and their personalities that were the best part in the show.
They all seem plain and emotionless as if the script writer had to hurry and make something just to milk more money out of the series.
This is the best part of the OVA. I had nothing against the music. The intro and outro sound pretty good, the music in the show doesn't annoy the watcher nor doesn't it fit, which is quite good. It's not even slightly close to a masterpiece though.
I didn't enjoy this OVA in any way. It's a big disappointment to anyone who watched Green-green series before and it's impossible to recommend this to anyone, either fans or people who have no idea about Green-green.
I marked this on 3/10 just because of the music and the plain fact that it's green-green – a series I liked and enjoyed watching. And I still believe that this OVA doesn't deserve such a high mark. Shame on the creators. read more
Don't watch this one, it will make you like the (good) Green Green TV series less.
I decided to watch this after completing the main Green Green anime and the anime was the only reason i kept watching the ova. I give it some credit because i enjoyed the anime but that's really the only reason, i hardly got a smile out of it and if id never seen the anime, then this would not be funny or really make that much sense.
The story is nonexistent but the plot is the opposite from the anime, the guys go to the girls school and do stuff. The perverts are still perverted and the girls still hate the guys, Chitose likes Yusuke but there's no other connection other than they meet for the first time and she instantly likes him. The characters are different from the anime, the emo kid looks........'different' and actually gets to talk, turns out he's a pervert too.
The art isn't the worst Ive even seen, but it was pretty close (while i was watching it i kept thinking of adventure quest). At one time Yusuke's eyes were huge and i noticed that the chair he was sitting in at one scene disappeared after the camera went to his friends and back to him. The animation was bad also, the running scenes were all really slow, not compared to super fast epic running (you know what i mean), it was just really slow. There was other bad animation but i don't really care to name it all off.
The op was fine and so was the ending, the sound effects were also fine except that they were off at some times and some of the effects should have lasted longer or faded, like when the two perverts were climbing down the latter, there was only about 3-4 steps and then the sound just ended.
The characters looked the same as in the anime and for the most part were, but some characters were not included (like the red haired girl) and there was one extra male character. The older guy that likes the younger girl isn't as much of a pervert as in the anime and nobody really seems to have any emotion except anger and lust.
I didn't really like this and only kept watching it because of the anime. The story wa.......oh wait there wasn't one, the art was adventure quest quality, the animation was bad for the most part and the sound was, at most ok. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody especially if they haven't seen the anime, now to go watch the thirteen erolutions. read more
I can't really give this series a rating, mostly because there is no defined genre, but the series is really great. BUT, DO NOT WATCH THE OVA, it sucks. read more
