Well, this OVA of course comes from the video game Tales of Symphonia. So, the story is the same, however theres quite a few parts left out. However, I don't think it is quite right to say that just because of that the story isn't that good. This is the animation, not the game. Sure, it's based on it, but it's not gonna be an exact copy of it.
It starts really being a kind of 'save the planet' storyline, as a girl who is the Chosen One and her friends set out for a journey to a tower where she'll become an angel and rescue read more

Story: This OVA is based off the game by the same name "Tales of Symphonia" basically there is a girl that is the "chosen" and she is to go on a mission to save her world from dying of a mana shortage. She is joined by her friends and they go on the journey for her to become an angel, which she needs to become to save the world. Now, I won't say this OVA won't be enjoyable if you haven't played the game, but you will notice that there are big gaps in time which they are supposed to be filled in in the read more

The problem that occurs when trying to make a show/movies/anime about a game is that you are inevitably going to have cut a fair amount of content, this problem is amplified when you try to adapt an RPG, because you are cutting a 50+ hour game down to 2-10 viewing, and skipping this content normally REALLY hurts the show in question. Now it's time to see how hard Tales of Symphonia hurt itself, at least for the first part.

The Short Version:
(+)The music is delightful.
(-)The entire thing feels rushed.
(-)The characters aren't really fleshed out.
(-)You can tell they just want to get past the beginning of the read more

Tales of Symphonia, the original being a video game, is probably the best rpg games out there for both Gamecube and PS2. From its epic plot to its memorable characters--one of the best villains of all times, Yggdrasill!--all the way to its awesome soundtrack, it is a masterpiece.

The OVA does an excellent job in capturing the most important aspects of the videogame, although, leaving out some major side plots that are very significant to the overall theme. Even with it's fast paced, and sometimes obviousness that is not present in the original game, the OVA allows fans to relive that heart-rendering experience with the read more
