I don't usually make reviews, in fact, this is my first one ever. I decided to review this OVA in particular because of one reason, it was a very simple yet enjoyable episode.

Inter-Highs aren't far away, and in order to participate on the starting lineup a certain halfwit , Kagami, has to face tough study session with Riko and the rest of the gang in order to pass the upcoming profiency test.

Or what you usually look at in the moments like this. Yes, you need to laugh now, at the very least, it's the only chance to laugh due to this product.
