Well I have to say that I really wanted to watch this anime after reading the manga volumes over and over again... I love the story behind it and the ova was following volume 1 perfectly. But there is a but in all this.
For a reader like me who had already read all the chapters it's easy to know and understand EVERYTHING that happens, but I'm not sure if a person that haven't read anything would understand certain things here.
Therefore as a reader it's hard for me to know how a person without the background history would look at this great ova. I'd
say it's a great one filled with what i expected.. though a little too much blood for my taste is all.
To tell the truth, ova 1 only contains chapter 1 from volume 1 from the Vassalord manga which contains many more chapters and more than 4 volumes. So if you liked the ova, please do read the manga
Overall I give this ova a 8 because I love the story behind it, the art was great, and loved the voice actors too
Watched it for the sake of the shounen ai but found there was almost nothing about it, on the other hand the art, visual language and animation of the episode were jaw dropping! This weird 30 minutes of an episode is a trippy action packed dramatic almost nonsensical hard to understand journey that does little in trying to explain itself. Sometimes it bores, other times it grips you hard to the screen. I'd recommend trying to watch the first scene and to chose from that if it interests you to complete the viewing, the fan-service driven promotional poster certainly doesn't do that piece of enigma
-art is beautifully done
-art matches the plot
-plot is original
-conclusion was a very helpful segment that answered the main questions regarding the plot.
-plot/characters is borderline on making sense. Yes, the general aspects of the questions are answered but the more definitive parts like individual characters appeared to be brushed off. For example the sidekick if you will job is counter-intuitive. He acts but how can he give who he is? Also, his make up seems off putting. Like blending a tomato with a pineapple.
-introduction painted a confusing standpoint for what is supposed to be.
-art was not done well enough to convey a
sound: did not convey proper suspense.
p.s. commercial/horror is interesting but is pretty hard to get a good blend. If you want a dark laugh then you might like this. If you want to stain your pants don't bother with this.
To be honest I only got interested because it was a shounen ai so I thought I would give it a try. Considering this is only an OVA and there's only 1 episode, it lacks a lot and the story is very confusing.
However it peeked my interest and there's a lot more to find out, so I'm planning on reading the manga to learn the rest of the story so my rating might change after reading and learning the rest of the story.
I probably advise everyone to read the manga since this story has potential and I'm sure the manga manages to explore it but
then again this is only my opinion and since I haven't read the manga, I can't confirm if it will be any good.
It was an enjoyable OVA and hopefully the manga won't disappoint.
