Mitsuki wakes up late, and must rush to a photo shoot. However, in her hury she forgets to bring Takuto and Meroko along. Now they must catch up to her, before the photo shoot begins, despite everything that gets in their way.
Cute Cute Adventure? you think. Cute Cute Adventure! I say.
Not often have I been able to make a review that is longer than the thing being reviewed. But today I can gladly triumph at my victory. Being at least no longer than 12 minutes, this is probably the shortest OVA I have ever watched.
Can this OVA be viewed as a stand-alone? Hardly, you definitely need to have watched Full Moon wo Sagashite to even begin to understand the content and the events in Cute Cute Adventure. If you're reading about this OVA without having seen Full Moon wo Sagashite you're in the wrong place. Begin
with watching Full Moon wo Sagashite (which is highly recommended may I add) before you even consider watching this OVA.
Having said all of this, let's get down to the meat. For an OVA, and for Full Moon wo Sagashite in particular - the story is indeed quite below poor. Taking into consideration that the OVA is under 12 minutes however it is easy to conclude that a magnificent story wasn't on the directors' minds when they made it. The OVA is made for more character screen-time alone, and probably not even in the slightest anything else. Actually, which should also be noted, the title makes a good summarization of the contents - kawaii kawaii Adventure. It's cute, and I reckon some of those who have watched Full Moon wo Sagashite will appreciate that.
The art is like that of Full Moon wo Sagashite, no complaints at all (I can't give a 10-minute OVA a score over 5 though). It's enjoyable.
The sound is, oh, I don't remember if it was the same as the original Full Moon wo Sagashite - but surely it wasn't bad. You won't be able to hear much song variation in a 10-minute clip though, so it never really matters.
Overall, it's enjoyable enough. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it (notice that 3 rate) but to those who find Meroko and Takuto and Mitsuki cute in whatever "adventure" they're thrown into I can imagine that watching this OVA will be an enjoyable ride. For those who never really fancied the humour and "kawaiiness" of Full Moon wo Sagashite (no matter if you enjoyed the anime as a whole or not) could still watch this OVA. It's horrible I said? Well, that's true, but it's under 12 minutes so finding an excuse for not watching the OVA will be difficult enough. At least afterwards you can mark all spin-offs derived from Full Moon wo Sagashite off.
What can I say about this dumb OAV? What the heck am I watching? This is really pissing me off. It's worse than Full Moon o Sagashite, which is actually pretty good in my opinion but I'm more of a fan of action and adventure.
I feel like this OAV is trying to brainwash me and sometimes to think it's good. This OAV is good for babies and toddlers, I do not think that anyone over the age of about 4 can stand this. The title card is childish!
So this OAV is about Mitsuki who oversleeps through her television interview and now she must get to
the interview as Full Moon as fast as she can! I don't think this is a bad idea but this is just completely pointless with some random parts to it. It reminds me of the adventures Mitsuki, Takuto, and Meroko had in the series which isn't anything like them, therefore just cutesy. This isn't even completely like Full Moon o Sagashite.
The art and animation are almost completely different even when I read the title, it said Cute Cute Adventure and I thought it was supposed to be interesting because it represents the cuteness of the anime? Plus, it was supposed to be even cuter? Looking at the poster, it makes me even more confident that this was supposed to be even cuter. And when I watched it, this is exactly what I thought, even cuter! Why make it even cuter? The characters were already too cutesy without having to make them even more cutesy!
I can hardly remember the music but I remember it being repetitive! I think Mitsuki has a different voice actor because now she sounds like a cutesy anime ten-year-old! What happened to myco? The voice acting was perfect in the series.
I think Mitsuki is stupider than she used to be. Why didn't she just go find Takuto and Meroko and ask them to transform her into a teenager instead of trying to sneak in? Even Takuto and Meroko are stupid. Everybody is now different.
I must stop writing this review, thinking about this OAV is starting to bore me aside from the series though, while annoying wasn't too bad or much too annoying, it even managed to be quite memorable. This is like even more annoying, how I'm rating it. The series was a beautiful childhood memory now crushed because of this pointless OAV even if the ending was alright. I'm glad it was short.
This OAV is so unbelievably unmemorable, everything about it except for the story is, it can even be quickly forgotten. I even forgot the dialogue quickly, part of the reason is because the characters were talking so fast. Just watch the show, it's more fun instead of wasting your time on this OAV.
