It is the start of Takatoshi Tsuda's second year as the put-upon vice president of the student council and his sister Kotomi is entering school as a first year. New friends and double entendres are made.
SYD is back for more. Still funny, still gross, and there's more.
It is always a grand move when anime series release OVA episodes as means of taking more risks with their audience along the way and present something that is a bit edgier and riskier without being too radical. SYD did just that and then some. Honestly, if you're not at all feeling shocked and amused with "Dried Squid and Takatoshi" mini arc, then perhaps it's best for you to switch to one of those Marvel or DC Animation realms.
Anyway, let's keep this review short because there's still Season 2 to binge-watch literally after writing
Well, I'll assume you've watched season one if you're looking at the Seitokai Yakuindomo OVAs. Honestly, even though 8 ovas is a lot, as a whole or even stand alone these were pretty much just as good as the original series. The story didn't change, obviously. You'll get more of the same type of sexual comedy that you should be used to now. Don't be expecting character changes, new opening and ending themes, newer animation style, etc. Basically everything, is the same old stuff you must have liked from season if you're looking at this.
have two reasons for why I don't think the ovas and season 1 are equally as good. The first being that the one reoccurring segment kind of gets old fast and it's not nearly as funny as the other jokes. The second being that the animation and art quality seemed to drop a little in the last episode or two. A lot of scenes seemed to be really grainy compared to scenes from previous episodes. These are the only complaints I have.
If you liked season 1, check this out. I think you'll enjoy it like I did.
I might as well review the succeeding installments if I'm hoping for improvement. Sure enough, Seitokai Yakuindomo's OVA continues the double entendre-filled days of the Ousai Student Council.
The OVA directly adapts several chapters in the 4-koma, and possibly could have added some anime-original scenes I couldn't point out anymore because in contrast to last time, the segments are more focused on the gags of the Student Council themselves and not some random unimportant illusionary characters. In a surprising turn of events however, I think that the quality of the jokes' executions were a big leap compared to the first season. Everything was delivered at a
faster pace and gives enough leeway to set up for the next punchline.
Since this OVA also covers the times the manga's episodic nature becomes more lengthy in duration, everything was better because it does not become confusing as much as the first series. Story arcs were also introduced and provided much of the character relationship development I felt was lacking in SYD. Not to say that it is significant whatsoever, as this is still a comedy, but the Tsuda-Shino moments seem to have increased, making everything have much more motive in plot progression. The sex jokes may be smart, but their effect won't last for long.
One of the reasons why everything felt more funny was the voice actors, who seem to have handled their characters with more conviction than the original. Particular praise for Satomi Arai for her improved iteration of Hata, who was already a funny character but her effort in making the resident paparazzi more expressive than her 4-koma counterpart made it better. The music was more or less the same, but it was never that important to begin with.
The inclusion of a new character, Uomi (who, later on gets a much more significant role so keep an eye out for her) was very welcome to the cast. Not that I'm being biased because she's voiced by Chiwa Saito or anything, but her appearance adds some new chemistry (and friction! Finally!) to the mostly-lewd characters.
SYD's first OVA spans eight episodes, so it might as well be a new season. It obviously learned well from its previous mistakes, and did a better job of adapting the manga while being a solid comedy show all in all, making me even more stoked to continue with the show's second season.
Well if you enjoyed the previous 13 episodes of Seitokai Yakuindomo you're bound to enjoy this one:)
This series hasn't got a deep plot/deep thought/visuals or any of that stuff
it just works magic with a few ingredients:
sexual references and visual puns
in well known surroundings, aka an Academy, a student council filled with three girls and one guy.
You should watch this series because the humour is great, a smile stayed on my face the entire OVA, never a dull moment,never taking itself seriously.
Also haven't noticed this in other reviews but the sound is very well used for comedy purposes throughout the series and in this OVA.
the story:), so it's the first day of school for Tsuda's sister + a new character,won't spoil the surprise here...
Number 2 is out for a while now and I must say
EVEN BETTER THEN BEFORE
Our beloved Seitokai Yakuindomo group returns with a few new twists
Tsuda his sister gets a more prominent role and has more interactions with everybody.
Also a temp teacher for her class ,a couple of new characters
yet instead of feeling forced
the sexual puns continue in a greater tempo and new boundaries are being sought, woohoo
also great 2 seconds of Hagimura her English cursing:)
