I agree with my concept and reaffirm that Eromanga sensei is a very normal show. However, I want to quote my review of the series "If we let Sagiri's relationship leave the spectrum, we can appreciate some characters like the promiscuous and introverted personality of Elf Yamada and the shy, educated nature of Muramasa, but unfortunately if we add Sagiri into the equation, Masamune's relations are unbalanced and, in some cases, forced."
As you can see, the real OVA explains that phrase. The OVA is beautiful and enjoyable. We can laugh at the ideas and reactions of Yamada Elf. I most enjoy the song, the lies,
her attitude, and all the actions during the OVA. I wonder why I enjoy the OVA ... Ohh yes, Sagiri wasn't there. It is similar to episode 9 from the main series.
On the other hand, we can see the contrast in the second episode. I do not consider the second episode as an OVA; it is a surplus of the main series, and the opening gives me the reason. None wanted to transmit it, so let's add it as an OVA, none will notice that is a residue. Yes sure, we noticed and the score for that episode is 3 - 4 and I am being generous.
That extra episode is very dull. Seeing how Sagiri tries to take care of her ill brother is nonsense. Do not get me wrong, but the statement "I cannot watch over you if you're not in my room" and then she leaves the room several times is ridiculous and without any intelligent argument. Now I understand why that useless episode was removed from the main series because it's garbage.
The score I am giving is based on the original OVA, who resorts in the secondary characters creating a more pleasant outcome, we can see something different from the main series and in which Yamada Elf once again shine.
Eromanga Sensei is art. When spring 2017 brought us this, we thought we had seen everything anime had to offer. We thought. Eromanga Sensei launched into the anime fandom with a clear message: Anime is trash and it will only get worse.
Now there are a few OVA's of them and I gonna tell you if they are worth watching.
The first OVA has Elf celebrating a party because one of her novels got an anime adaptation. However, her mother wants to bring Elf with her because Elf hasn't find a husband yet. Elf doesn't want that and wants to stay. Pretty okay episode. I liked the
musical piece, but it did not blow my mind in any way and just was kinda there. Overall, okay episode.
The second OVA has Sagiri caring for her brother because he is sick. This is, In my opinion, a far better episode then the first OVA. The biggest reason for this is because of the incredibly simple premise. The first OVA has a set story and there is very little room for creativity. This OVA has tons of room for creativity and jokes and it makes good use of it. I chuckled multiple times throughout the episode.
Overall, I think the first OVA is okay but can be skipped and the second OVA is a must watch if you liked Eromanga Sensei.
Now I need to finish the review, the lights are going out at 7 PM and if I keep going like this the prison guards will punish me.
When I heard that there was an OVA for the highly acclaimed Eromanga-Sensei, i could not stop myself from nutting in a completely legal way. After watching the OVA episodes, I was surprised to find that not only did I find them enjoyable, but that they were better than the original series itself. In the first episode, we get to explore the character of Emily (Elf Yamada) and see into her past, which is why we all watch this show. Furthermore, we were graced with the undoing the zipper on the dress scene, which was a metaphor for Masamune freeing her from
the confines of society. Never before have I witnessed a scene that was not only pleasing to the eye (don't worry she said she was 14 but this episode happens 4 years later according to verifiable sources), but also was used to represent her dilemma with her mother. Now, for the second episode, this was what thee viewers wished for: an episode with just Masamune and his Imouto who is not related by blood and is also 18 by this point in time. We get rid of the trash side characters like that random guy who no one likes and most of Masamune's harem, and the imouto gets to have one on one time with her nii-chan. In this episode, we get a scene that we have all been waiting for: eromanga-sensei kissing her onii-chan. I cannot count the amount of times that I nutted to that scene (nutted is ambiguous here but i assure you that it is legal). What a great ending to the first season, and I hope there is more to come.
The two OVA episodes are unrelated, i.e. each one has its own story and no need to watch them in sequence, therefore I'll have to review each one separately.
The first episode is about Elf and a party made for her first anime adaptation (or whatever) and her mother, who's not too keen about her life. Frankly I think it's pretty boring. Proper disclosure - I watched this show when it aired back in 2017 and didn't bother watching it again just for the OVA, and I didn't really remember Elf and it took me a while to even understand who she is. Also, it refers
a bit to past episodes, again could be an issue if it's been a while since you last watch the show. Even assuming that you do remember the characters I still don't see much of a plot here. I'll give it a 5 and that's being generous.
The second episode is about Masamune being sick and Sagiri tending to him while he's in bed. Sagiri is then forced to face her fears when someone actually depends on her. I don't really want to go into further details in order to avoid spoilers but I will say that it doesn't require you to remember any details from the show besides the fact that Sagiri is virtually always locked in her room. Overall a way better episode and I give it an 8.
Since I can't give a score of 6.5 I'm giving this one a 7. If you're short on time you don't have to bother with the first episode, but do watch the second.
