The first impression I had about this particular anime is it didn’t strike me as a magical girl OVA and just more of medieval/fantasy story. Since this particular OVA was released during the 1980s, I wondered if it’s going to have any of the ridiculousness and cheese that American movies had in their own media that was present at this time. Although, looking at the promotional art and some screencaps, the art is extremely gorgeous and it’s something that definitely appeals to me. The only thing, though, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I actually do.

Since this is only one OVA, I’m read more

This was a strange bit of 80s nostalgia for me.

As another review noted, this feels like it was intended as a pilot movie for a magical girl series that was never made. The main character, animal companion, and sidekick are all introduced. The setting is established, and then they have a short adventure. Afterwards the main girl returns to Earth, but they make a point of saying that she can come back. An open ending that was never followed up on.

That said, while the characters, music, and plot are all bog standard 80s OVA anime, the art itself is very distinctive. This is a trippy read more

This is such glorious trash! It's one of those rare anime that are terrible in so many ways, yet that is what makes it enjoyable to watch. If that's your sort of thing.

One of the earliest OVAs to be produced, this follows the adventures of a clueless girl who is teleported to another world, is befriended by a goofy-looking talking dog, and the key to returning to Earth is her Walkman.

The premise of this show is so, so stupid. And the way it is written is also gloriously stupid as well. read more

I feel like I liked this more than I should. I mean the plot is pretty bare bones and kind of dumb, but there's something weirdly charming about the package as a whole. The world is distinctive and well designed, and after watching n a whole bunch of 80s OVAs lately, it's really nice to see mechs that aren't just designed to look like they came out of Gundam or Macross. That said, what really elevates this into something decent is the direction. Yuyama kept this whole thing surprisingly atmospheric, and he gave us some pretty good action setpieces. read more

Action, adventure, fan service. This very underrated OVA does a great job on delivering this combination. A charming fantasy world with awesome wizard and mecha stuff going on that manages to be depicted with clarity in it's short running time. Slap on an absolute babe with a sword and a skimpy outfit and you're set. This is the kind of OVA that people who like cute girls doing cool things will find exceptional, and even if that's not so much your thing the setting is still really fun.

It was clear that the people who made this cared very much about the quality of their work. read more
