I can sum this OVA up in one word: annoying.
After watching a couple of minutes, my first thought was, "What is this, a Lifetime movie?"
Well, you know what they say about first impressions. Mine was pretty much right.
Our story begins with two best friends: high school students. It's not hard to guess what happens from there, though throwing a poor girl without a chance in hell into the mix was a rather sad touch (on her end, anyway. I felt sorry for her).
The music grated on me from the very second the picture popped onto the screen. It made me feel like I was seeing
something a bunch of middle aged women would watch on movie night or some crap. Although, the story had just as much of a chick flick feel to it, so it fit even more.
That being said, I hate movies like that, so naturally I was annoyed almost the entire time by how cliche and sickeningly girly every scenario was. I found myself wondering if it was over yet every few minutes, that's how much I wanted it to be.
The characters actually aren't half bad in terms of characterization, and the art is decent too. I didn't hate this anime, but like I said, I was extremely annoyed by it. If this had been any longer than one episode, I probably wouldn't have watched any more of it.
If you like chick flicks, you'll like this. That's really all I can say at this point. If you want something deep and unique, this is not the one you're looking for.
