Overall/Enjoyment:
I've seen much worse. Much, much worse. This was reasonably solid and had a fair mix of good and bad points. At 3 hours it's probably a little longer than necessary, and the transitions between leaps in time are a little awkward. Although some cheese is present, it never gets ridiculous enough to where you can't take it seriously. In fact, part of the reason I kept watching was because despite being fairly silly at times, it still presented itself in a manner that at least made an effort to tell a real story.

Story:
Not the most original of stories, naturally, but few seldom are. I ...

Being that this OVA has only one other review I decided to write my first review on Teito Monogatari.

Story: 6/10
The base is there. I mean, it's based off a novel, so it's quite literally there. However, it feels incomplete, since it technically is- it's based specifically on the first four books of the novel (which is around 1/3rd of it). It's a darker (AKA more violent and sexualized) adaptation of the source material, which I'm okay with, but I can see that driving away potential viewers. The nudity is almost, if not always, unnecessary. Even if you don't mind the darker aspects of it, you'll most likely find that the story feels unfocused and even rushed at times. There's lots of confusing plot ...
