For those who have seen the 6 series I"s Pure and or have read the Manga, this OVA departs dramatically from the story; leaving much wanting. It feels more like a saturday morning special than a representation of the I"s story.

The art quality is actually pretty good. As a stand alone way to spend an hour you may find some enjoyment in it.

What... the fuck?

That's all I could think as the story progressed. There was an event that got it started, and then as it closed... Let's just put it this way...

This OVA contains elements never present before in this series, and it strays from the idea of the series horribly.

As many have stated before, the art was very nice, though sometimes the character's looks kind of weird. Iori in particular.

On a side note, I almost felt like this was some sort of cross over. The supporting characters that were not apart of the main cast had this "I feel like I should know who these read more

For starters, I wouldn't suggest anyone watch 'I"s' without first having read the manga or watched "I"s Pure." I"s is a great OVA because it takes our normal characters (Ichitaka, Iori, Itsuki, ect.) and places them in a rather bizarre, epic, and totally tense situation. It'd say a little more but it'd totally ruin the shock vaule of the OVA. However, I will tell the audience to be ready for anything, and I mean anything.
Art wise, everything is done pretty well. It's very fluent rather than being flashy like other shoujo anime. The colors are very pale and natural looking and it reallt sets you read more

I haven't read the manga, which I guess you are supposed to do if you are gonna get anything out of this OVA. In my book, this was a waste of an hour.

Pretty good looking, this OVA. Nicely drawn surroundings and water. The characters look dull, empty and stupid however.

No music at all. Mediocre voice acting. Nothing horrible, but far from good.

The story is supposed to be cute with three friends meeting up to keep a promise they made ten years ago. The cuteness is easily overshadowed by total dumbness, however. The chances of all characters ending up at the same place at the same read more

(covers I's & I's Pure)

Today’s topic revolving around this anime is romance, considering at the time of writing this review, it’s close to Valentine’s Day, mostly the holiday that many people either get excited about or dreaded as it goes by. Anyway, the anime du jour is based on the manga that was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump in Japan from 1997 to 1999; the series was collected into 15 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. There were 2 OVA adaptations, the first From I’s is a 2-episode OVA while I’s Pure is a six-part OVA.

The story's main character is 16-year-old high school read more
