"One Off" is a very simple story. It's all about overcoming the obstacle of negative thinking, things that you may think are impossible can actually be more easily attainable when you are working towards that goal and thinking positively. If anything, you will feel better.
Nothing good comes from negative thinking except for just that, more negative thinking.

This is your basic slice of life story with mopeds, motorcycles, the eagerness to travel, and Honda (yes, the vehicle company) as the main subjects. With one of the best directors when it comes to slice of life works, Junichi Sato.

It's not original, but does anyone really expect read more

I love Junichi Sato. I really do, despite the fact that I've only been exposed to a few of his works, and Tamayura happens to be my favorite. However...I can't believe I watched this piece of trash! It's a good thing it's only four fifteen-minute long episodes like the original Tamayura OVAs were, and whaddaya know! This is supposed to be a car advertisement, like how Hokago no Pleiades is! Ugh, I can't believe I wasted my time on this dumb OVA. It's such a shame, as this could have been a lot better, and the issues it tackled could have been handled more appropriately. read more

One Off is one of those Anime that is ideal if someone has an hour of free time on their hands and is in the mood for a slow paced slice of life storyline that goes at a slower pace then some of the other slow paced storylines out there. The charm of this Anime is in the basic, simple nature of the animation and music that allows the viewer to feel relaxed while watching. Some of the down sides though is the plot isn't as fleshed out as it could be as well as the characters, but then this was an OVA designed for read more

One Off was subbed yesterday and I already watched it 3 times. You may think that this anime must be pure awesome because I watched it 3 times in a day, but not exactly that. I just enjoyed it a lot.

That said, One Off is still pretty amazing anime for such a short series. The story is about these 5 girls, which names I don't know doing slice of life stuff, and they like motorbikes. The blue-haired girl is funny as hell. She has cutelittlefangs and she is master of the trope, google it if you don't know. Surpasses Tsuru-chan from Suzumiya Haruhi series, read more
