Based on the RPG game of the same name. Aurica Nestmile is a young Reyvateil, or "singing maiden" who feels her song magic is not of much use to anyone. From high up on the tower Ar Tonelico comes Lyner Barsett, whose airship is totaled upon impact with the ground. These two meet up, and in the search for someone who can repair the ship, end up helping both each other and themselves.

Note: I'm using the characters' names from the American release of the video game in this review.

This one-episode OVA is an introduction to the world of the PS2 RPG that goes by the same name. I liked the game and played it before watching this, therefore I fully realized the incoherence of the story and the plain worthlessness of this anime.

Ar Tonelico is a massive tower, reaching from the bottomless depths below the continent known as the Wings of Horus up into the skies high above. Lyner Barsett is out on a mission in his airship, but the electromagnetical disturbances around the tower, known as read more

Ar Tonelico OVA is based on the PS2 video game of the same name. I've played the game itself before watching this OVA.
The animation itself is on par. What I like is that they used some of anime scenes from the game (only modified a bit).
The story itself is not good but not bad either. After watching this, I thought that this was made to show how the magics are done and show in depth one of the places found in the game. Just my thoughts. Really.
I do like the characters a lot. Sadly, only some characters appeared but managed to retain some of its read more

How would I describe this? It can be factually described as a promotional piece for a video game, but also conceptually as the first episode in a longer series that never got produced.

It sets up an imaginative setting with rich content and an interesting background. The story promises to be engaging and rich and the characters show a lot of potential. And of course, the music is great. But there is one small flaw that takes everything down a few notches and actually places the overall score lower than the individual scores.

This is the only episode.

There is so much promise here. Yes, it's meant to read more

(A.N. Reviews are my personal opinions, these aren't coming from an objective perspective where I try to look at the anime critically. I just want to jot down my thoughts on somewhere where I physically can't lose it)

Mmmmm. I don't have much to say about this one, so this should be pretty short~!
The very short anime is like a oneshot manga that could be developed but isn't really developed but you end up going, "Meh. I mean I guess." Since the single episode anime was derived from a game, they didn't need to build much upon a story. They gave a simple short intro and read more
