The world has been divided into two halves by a giant wall to prevent the epidemic of "Dark mist". In order to shelter the refugees, artificial cities called "Arks" were built. Shido Enishi is a private detective, who works at the ninth Ark. One day, he is asked to capture a burglar. The seemingly simple case leads him to a great conspiracy.

All i have to say is that this OVA is basically a trailer for the real OVA coming out, but there is no real OVA coming out hahaha. There is no story. All you get is violence with no explanations. The story is beyond mediocre and the art is a little above decent. But if you're a brainless puppet and you enjoy senseless ninjustu hand motions, this is totally for you.

I actually really like how it gave you a rough idea what the actual story is about. It unfortunate it isn't longer, I would have watched it. I think the fighting is nicely drawn. It is really hard to tell what type of story something will be about in such a short amount of time but I think the handled it very well.
I would really give this an 8.5 if I could because I do wish they would have made it flow a bit better. All in all a good 11 minute OVA.

This was too fast paced. for 11 minutes all the main character did was use his hands to fight demons - like if he had hand sanitiser he needed to evaporate lol

You just have to know ONE thing.

That's why you're going to watch this.

Tbh, I found the story a bit confusing and there's no ''flow'' between scenes, probably because the short time that they had to put everything up, so I pretty much didn't understand anything, but nevereverland is here to save us all tho. Besides that, art isn't the best neither characters voice, and I can't understand that because there're a lot of animes from this same period that are way superior in every aspects compared to this one.
