The mouth animation doesn't match the voicing, the movement isn't natural and everything feels plastic. Background detail doesn't match with foreground, 3D rotation is over used in hokey battles....
More importantly, there's nothing that really draws me in. I want to like it, but it hurts.

The characters are completely one dimensional and overblown and there isn't any real effort to provide a reason to get attatched. The pacing is such that you never seen any sort of interaction.
The mystery and suspense is lacking because of the format. You have about 10 mins of one episode to get background, then a character is murdered and the remainder of the episode consists of hysterical sobbing and showing a crime scene, with the most incompetent of people trying to connect clues. The next episode is the same incompetent people slowly revealing links and evidence that should have been evident within 5 mins or thought.
The art is basic, the voice acting is overly dramatic, and it falls completely short of my hopes. read more

Story: I've only gotten one episode in, but there are allusions to a deeper running plot. My expectation is for mostly episodic content until probably the 5th ep. There will be more and more revealed until that point, but the 5th and 6th should be true story. Thats fine and as long as the story is eventually fleshed out while still being entertaining, its all good.
Art: what else would you expect from a show with this much gore and yuri but great art. Its sexy, and I'm talking about more than the boobies. XP It has a very dark feel and definitely needs to be watched full screen in a dark room. The higher the quality the better. Some good effects and tons of detail.
Sound: I enjoy the sound of the actors, and putting such a cute voice on Mimi is hilarious when you realize she isn't as innocent as she seems. The OP is also great, sadly I don't tend to pay too much attention to them. Something other that cheery Jpop is always nice.
Character: I'm having a lot of fun with these guys. We've got the two "ladies" who are obviously bi, a somewhat wimpy and confused guy, and enough alcohol to drown them all in. It actually looks like some care was put into these characters.
Enjoyment: Hey, this is a blast. Some good laughs )though I'm sure that some of the humor will be lost on the younger watchers (Seriously....if your mommy tucks you in at night...you really shouldn't be watching this...even if you are 30). There is a certain something that can be said for the experience of curing a hangover with liberal drinking. Theres gore, well-played nudity, dry humor, action, sexual innuendo, sadism and more. What else could you want?
Overall: If this continues to deliver it may very well be my favorite new show, and perhaps make it up there with some of my longtime favorites. Only time will tell. read more

After finishing what OVAs were out I decided to watch the previous two seasons. This was a bit of a mistake I am sad to say. The TV series is slow and painfully full of filler. Read the manga instead.
The good news is that these OVAs return to the source and appear to have eliminated the slow progression and needless blather. Manga and general Tsubasa fans rejoice: this has a POINT!
As an OVA there is no time to waste, no painfully slow panning across faces while playing the same tired song, simply to take up time. This appears as if the story will actually progress and keep true the entire time. I am looking forward to the continuation. read more
