Lime, Cherry, and Bloodberry, female-like androids called marionettes, have returned to Otaru`s side. The somewhat reformed marionettes of Faust (Tiger, Luchs, and Panther) are sent to stay with Otaru and friends to learn more about being human. Enter a seventh marionette named Marine, who has a mysterious power -- and they all possess the special maiden circuit that allows a marionette to feel emotions!

J again is like the episode 26 of the first season that been cut into 6 parts and watching it straight is like watching a movie~ now now Mecha-harem anyone? :D

A lot of things has happened in this OVA, but the main story was about a sudden awakening of a Marionette with a serial number NSMX-1, with no memories of who made her and from what country she came from. She met Lime in the forest and thus begun her daily life in the Otaru household together with Faust saber dolls named Tiger, Luchs and Panther. No one knows the impending danger that awaits them ...

Preliminary (3/6 eps)
A word of advice to anyone about to start the series, this one gets worse actually... The first episode at least attempts the drama of the original (poorly at that but whatever) the rest of the show is much more focused on "fan service" than actually keeping the characters personality.

I would recommend just skipping this one as I have heard better things about J to X, nothing from this appears in J to X anyway.

If you are able maybe try to read the light novel(s) this is based on. They are untranslated but I imagine they are of higher quality.
