Synopsis

Despite leading a peaceful life as the princess of a subterraneous colony, teenage Patema longs to escape her cramped industrial confines and experience someplace different. While satiating her curiosity by exploring a region known as the "danger zone," she is startled by a cloaked figure and falls into the darkness of an abyss.

Awakening with the sky below her feet and the ground hanging above, Patema finds herself clinging to a fence at the mercy of a seemingly reversed gravity. Although a nearby student named Age is able to rescue her, they are left wondering which of the two is actually upside down.

Background

Sakasama no Patema: Beginning of the Day is a series of short prologue episodes. While a full theater release titled Sakasama no Patema was supposed to follow suit in fall, the movie was postponed and premiered over a year later. The four unaltered Beginning of the Day episodes comprise the first 20 minutes of the movie.

The first episode premiered at a screening competition and was thereafter published to the GyaO! and Niconico Japanese video streaming services.

If you watched the movie first, you might as well not bother to watch this. It was released before the movie as a prequel and all of the scenes in the OVA are present in the movie, so, as I said, if you watched the movie first you've already seen every frame.

This is more of a teaser for the full movie but exactly the beginning of what you would see in the full-length movie. If you have a source of the sequel of this one, just watch the sequel "Sakasama no Patema".

Check out my review for the full movie too, if you want and if you have time ^_^

But if you don't have the source of the full-length movie yet, this is what you could expect IN THIS PREQUEL:

STORY:
Since this is just the beginning, it just showed the first part so you're gonna get interrupted by the abrupt ending of the story. Everything will be tackled ...

Mixed Feelings
This is more of a warning than a review. There's no reason to see this OVA. It's literally the first 20 minutes of the film. If you've already seen it and the OVA is still fresh in your mind just skip about 20 minutes into the movie.
