Akihito Kanbara finds himself in a courtroom and faces an unexpected jury for a peculiar lawsuit. Having turned into chibi idol versions of themselves, Mirai Kuriyama, Mitsuki Nase, and Sakura Inami are led by Ai Shindou to present incriminating evidence and deliver their dazzling verdicts.

However, Akihito is not the only one who is assigned a case. Pressed with varying charges, other characters of Kyoukai no Kanata stand trial and endure the comedic truth of their quirky habits.

Ending Theme

"Pobi no Kaerimichi (ポビの帰り道)" by Ai Shindou (Yuri Yamaoka)

I've never seen such kino before, what a banger. Wow, so they make anime this good? I wish I had watched this anime first before any other anime. I wish I watched this anime as a child before my first baseball practice. I wish my mom watched this when I was in the womb. When I die I want them to play Idol Saiban's ending theme "Poppy no Kaerimichi" at my funeral, because I want them to remember me not for my life or accomplishments but by when Ai Shindou sings that part that goes "futarikirijimetai keredo, suki yooo."

Nobody tell David Lynch I watched this ...

Preliminary (3/5 eps)
I found Kyoukai no Kanata: Idol Saiban! Mayoi Nagara mo Kimi wo Sabaku Tami (long name -right?) a very refreshing ONA (or is it OVA? Don't know the difference). It didn't add much to the plot line, and it didn't really add to character development either, but I still found it a joy to watch.

What is trial?

Trial is examination in a law court before a judge (and jury) to decide if somebody is guilty or innocent. But, what if your judge is a cute and moe-like person?

Kyoukai no Kanata: Idol Saiban! Mayoi Nagara mo Kimi wo Sabaku Tami is an original net animation based on the Kyoukai no Kanata series and streamed via YouTube on the official anime website.

Each episodes duration approx. 8 minutes and 3 episodes. 8 x 3=24 minutes. Same length as a regular episode of an anime so, what makes this ONA worth watching? or maybe not worth at all?

The story itself is a bonus shorts ...
