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.

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

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
