When Origami Tobiichi asks Shidou Itsuka out on a date, Shidou considers this his best opportunity to set the record straight and end their relationship. However, even with the help of the Ratatoskr crew, his attempts to break up with her fail; in fact, Origami gladly tolerates Shidou's humiliating requests and blunt comments! Shidou's unconventional mission incidentally complicates his relationship with Tooka Yatogami, and it seems that easing the tension is only possible by going on another date.

Similar to many other OVAs nowadays, this OVA has little plot and some fanservice. However, that does NOT mean you should not watch it. It is still as funny as the ones in the TV Series.

Like I said, there is no story. The OVA focuses on dates with Tobiichii and Tohka. Shidou no longer wants Tobiichii to be in love with him, so he and Kotori devises a plan to get her to hate him. However, the more he tries, the more she loves him (ish). Then, he goes on a date with Tohka because apparently her mental state is unstable.
The art ...

A continuation of the main show, this OVA has much less story and is just about pure fan service whether it be absolute hilarity or Tohka's picture at the very end. A treat to fans of the series, but don't expect anything if you didn't like the main show.

Ok. if you watched the first season you might as well watch this too.

in fact, it is quite amusing.

The protagonist opens the episode declaring he is a lolicon ( yes, I thought it was an error too ). unfortunately ( for me anyway ) this episode focuses on origami, and tohka.

The art is as crisp as ever and the song ( especially the introductions ) were quite pleasing.

if anything is lacking, I'd say it's the characters but you should be ready for a static tohka and origami, after watching season 1.
