Now, as I mentioned in my review on the Dancougar series page, I had trouble enjoying the show. The series drags at times, and can sometimes feel more repetitive than it really is. Most of my issues for the show do seem to come from overhype and expectations. However, I am starting to believe most of the hype is due to the OVAs, and SRW appearances.
Also, like in my review for the series, this OVA is a good starting point for viewers having trouble watching the show. This OVA tries to nicely condense 38-episodes into an hour then give longtime fans the closure they
deserved in the final 30 minutes. Yet, since the new footage is nearly 30 minutes, it makes me question why there could not have been 39-episodes.
Anyway, the new footage goes to embrace its Super Robot roots by busting out a sword and letting Obari show off! Also, the Emperor dies like a vintage Super Sentai villain, as he is super strong but gets killed easily. In addition, there is a neat hidden message during the final explosion on alien homeworld that reads "Thank You for Buying the Video!" Finally, the ending is still a cliffhanger, but it feels more rewarding than questioning on if the CBF won like the show did.
Overall, I enjoyed this OVA more than the series. I actually look forward to watching the other OVAs sometime soon. I hear the next ones range from typical "heroes return" side-story to awesome wrap-up epilogue. So, I am hoping it will wash the bad taste out of mouth.
