Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!: Depth of Field - Ai to Nikushimi Gekijyo currently consists of only 4x 2-3 minute episodes that were included with the DVD bundle. Essentially Depth of Field is a continuing mech battle between Takanashi, Rikka and Dekomori, Sanae.
No clear plot is given, the animation begins immediately in an alternate reality where Takanashi and Dekomori engage each other in battle, piloting Zone of The Enders/Gundam style mechs. This adds nothing to the original series and no other characters make appearances. Just pure mecha fun that is... to be continued.
Good quality, great blend of cute anime style with humanoid sci-fi mechas.
Nothing too special in this department. Generic mecha fighting sounds incomparable to animes like Gundam.
8th Grade Syndrome fantasy fight scene or a mech fight just for the hell of it? You decide. Again this adds no depth or anything to the main anime.
Too short to really complain. Happy enough to see extras for a great series. MECHS!
If you're a fan of the original series, it doesn't hurt to watch (very short). Even if just to enjoy the art. read more
(ow, sorry for the mistakes I'll do, even if they'll make your eyes bleed. France rpzt !)
So, Depth of Field...
I was... surprisingly... surprised. One thing very important is that I saw each episode with at least a week between each of them (it's the way I oblige myself to look animes I'm waiting from, haha). And at the beginning I was very suspicious about the story... "What da heck is happening ?!"
This was mostly because it seemed to be very different from the main first season.
But... At the end, we soon get back on tracks ! And come back to the Slice of Life style we (well, at least I) love. This is a thing I really appreciated: starting with a mecha and yet being a SoL and School Life.
Another things... the art.
I'm not a huge fan of mecha, so I wasn't suppose to enjoy this that much. But... KyoAni... Gosh, how great it was ! I didn't see such beautiful engines since Macross Zéro ! The movements are fluent, the details are great... Nothing to say, "kampeki" !
The sound was nice too. I especially loved the music of the 6th episode.
For the characters... Well, no need to precise anything.
At the end, I put 8/10 which is "Very Good", and a great mark for me. I'd say that it's a must for anyone who watched Chuunibyou and enjoyed it.
People who didn't see Chuunibyou can give a look too, but they wouldn't enjoy it as much as those who saw it... I guess.
