Pros: Funny, get to see Caren and Bazett in their animated debut

So in the midst of the Carnival Phantasm series we have this one additional OVA. It's an interesting compilation of various short parodies of Type Moon works.

Carnival Phantasm EX Season (2011)

Another great addition to Carnival Phantasm.

The art is the same as the main show but that is a good thing since it has aged so well.

The OP is still amazing to hear and we have many great noises.
