Let not an Outsider touch thee,
Lest thou shalt be cursed forever.

Once upon a time, in a land far away that was divided into two realms...
The Outside was roamed by teratomorphic creatures who had the power to curse whoever they touched. Humans could live safely only in the Inside. But when a lost little girl from the Inside named Shiva, and a demonic beast-looking Outsider simply known as "Teacher" initiate a quiet coexistence on the same side of the forest, their bond seems to transcend their incompatible natures. It is the beginning of a folktale about two outcasts -one human, one inhuman- who linger in the hazy twilight that separates night from day.

The Girl From the Other Side is the kind of manga that fits perfectly the medium it was born, turning any adaptation pointless. It would be, in truth, pretty tough to translate it into an animation due to it’s simplicity. Nonetheless, this OVA really nailed it, with every frame acting as a gorgeous painting (even presenting a scene that is borderline art house). Considering that all I have seen recently are the most popular animes of the season, this peculiar animation style was truly an endearing breath of fresh air. Well, before I resume this review I must say that I have not read the read more

Totsukuni no Shoujo tells the tale of a young girl and her otherworldly guardian living amidst of a forlorn forest. At first glance, their life together is harmonious and their relationship heartwarming; on further inspection however, something seems off…

It is hard to shake the sense of eeriness arising from the black-and-white juxtaposition of the young girl and her guardian whose behaviour strikes one as rather odd: during the early sequences of their everyday life he seems to frantically avoid any form of physical contact with the girl, instead opting for workarounds that do not require touching her.

The origin of his peculiar behaviour is slowly unravelled read more

Now it might just be because I'm an avid follower of the manga that my score is the way it is, after all without prior knowledge of the series it's hard to glean anything totally solid from a 10 minute OVA.
Rather than being something to critique by itself, this short work of art proves itself to be the perfect advertisement for the enchanting manga of the same name, as it was the cover art of the manga that caught my eye to begin with.

There is, however, something to be said about the outstanding visual and audio directing put into this OVA; to be able to read more

If you haven't started reading the manga of Totsukuni no Shoujo (The Girl From the Other Side) but is thinking about it,
then this OVA might be helpful to you like it was for me.

The story is visually told (no dialogue) and follows a young girl named Shiva, and a demon-like being called Sensei that takes care of her. But he can't touch her because that would give her an incurable curse.

Since this OVA is only 10 minutes long there isn't much of an overarching story and it's just a day in the their life. But what makes it interesting is the relationship between Shiva and read more
