As you might know, this is a spin-off from Di Gi Charat, which I have never seen or read about in any great detail, so there is some stuff on which I just can't comment or write enough detail about.

Not the strong point. The colours are simple, without any gradients used. The backgrounds are simple as well, but nicely drawn. The character designs are quite simple too, but they are cute. The notable thing is that as soon as there many characters on scene, like crowds, they are just drawn plain white with black lines. Something that doesn't actually ruin the animation in any way, ...

Mixed Feelings
Winter garden is a romance /slice of life spin off of the Di Gi Charat series. Unlike its parent story though, it holds very little similarities to it and could be viewed completely on its own.
  The only shared traits among Winter Garden and Di Gi Charat are the character designs, names and a few references that reveal the link between them. From the setting and tone of the original series to the personalities of the characters, everything is changed.

This OVA completely stripped away everything unique and interesting about Di Gi Charat. Dejiko is no longer the cute, temperamental, sassy protagonist everyone grew to love. This series portrayed her as a cookie-cutter anime girl: Complacent, shy, easily embarrassed, who spends her days doing little more than hoping the guy she likes will notice her...nothing like her original personality at all.

The plot was dull and uneventful. The art was lackluster compared the the original; even the colors were a lot duller. I really don't understand why this was created, and I kind of wish it hadn't been.
