This OVA features the band formed by Elsie and some of the girls that Keima had already conquered in the past.

The story is pretty much a spoof of K-ON! which I liked since I'm also a fan of it. The girls also struggle in forming a light music club. Keima only had a short appearance in this OVA. Because I never really able to read the manga version of this, at first I thought Keima wouldn't appear at all. Don't get me wrong, Keima still has a big role in this OVA. There's this moment where Keima believes that the girls he already had conquered read more

Alright so i don't have much time to write such a long review so it'll be short and simple this ova is defiantly related to the original story line AND it has an important influence on the actual story itself which im not gonna point out
but it explains alot when season 3 might and probably will come out.
Keima himself has a not much of an appearance in this OVA but its an important appearance still non the less as the fact that it relates to the story line.
the base of it is the band getting together and trying to rival KANON, and becoming a good read more

Ok, so now that I've watched this 1 off OVA, I have to say that it's not bad at all, if we're to look at it, it is more like a parody which is pattered after another anime "K-ON" which a group of girls gathered up to form an all girls band, so far most of the genres of this anime's prequel no longer applies to its OVA, the only genres apply were music, slice of life and comedy. but just like from the said anime, there are challenges abound for them, like:

1. Fine tuning not only their instruments but their capacity to play it read more

It's quite certain that Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai fans with the K-ON fan spirit within them would jump for joy if they saw this OVA. But K-ON doesn't have what this Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai OVA has: Comedy and Romance.

The concept was quite excellent. And at the end credits, I actually wished that they would continue this OVA as a mini series in the anime. There were so many things that they could've done with the characters.

Thanks for taking the time for reading this first-time reviewer's review and have a good day!
