If you'd like to waste 60 minutes of your time, watch _summer. It's not even that it was that awful. In all honesty, there was just no point to it. The ending is just outrageously unsatisfying. They introduce you to some characters, hint at some chemistry between a few of them, then end it with a weak attempt at a moral message. After watching episode two, the first thing that came to mind was "Alright, where's episode 3?" It was as if they decided to simply not conclude it, for the sake of making me angry.

Aside from that, everything else was fine. Characters designs were read more

In confession - what usually catches my first glance when selecting Anime to watch is the title. and "_Summer" was such a unique title, I simply had to watch it - given it was only two episodes, as well. Being Swedish, at first I had some heck of a hard time understanding the alternate title "Underbar Summer", with "underbar" meaning "wonderful" in my language, until my slow brain realized that it was referring to the "_" in front of the title. -_-; "Huh, is the alternate title in German or something?"

If you're into Ecchi, then it's watchable. If you're not, there's not really much else read more

People might think it's pointless, but I love this OVA!

_Summer starts of in a perverted way! (Ridiculous). Takumi was forcibly dragged by his friend to peek at the girls while taking a bath. (They got caught of course, hahahaha)......

The cast consist of wide variety of personalities. From the main guy who is clueless and slow. The bestfriend who acts cool, who is insearch for a girlfriend. The childhood friend that cooks for him every morning that's quiet. The sister that's outgoing and cheerful. The childhood girl's bestfriend who is agreesive,bossy,loud and shows no interest on guys (tomboy-ish) but deep down ya know. The school girl read more

There's not much to talk about this OVA, because it doesn't really explore what we were introduced to.

Well, in the synopsis it says that the protagonist starts to become aware of liking the opposite sex, but this was never mentioned in the OVA in a clear way, it was not explored.
There is also kind of a romance that is left very open between the protagonist and his childhood friend, Konami. And guess what? It is not explored either.
The protagonist's friend, Osamu, is always after a girlfriend, but never gets one. In the first episode it is hinted that he might have a relationship with Shino, read more
