This OVA was definitely something I didn't know I needed until it was given to me. It's action-packed, serious, with the occasional "onii-chan!" to fill the empty spaces. It feels like the first arch of the anime all over again, lacking the unneeded fanservice that accompanied the episodes after the Hollow Shadow. I myself, was ecstatic.
The OVA really delves into Akihito's past before the series, making up for the backstory that he had, but never touched on, in the anime. But what it really revolves around is Akihito's dream in the beginning of episode 2 of the anime, tying itself in at that point. read more

"W-what's the matter, aniki?"

That's when Hiroomi realized that his little sister has entered her rebellious stage.

Okay, as we all know, Kyoukai no Kanata was definitely a good anime. It had its proper amount of fanservice, action, drama and even some touching romance between kouhai and senpai. This OVA is exactly the same.

The difference between the parent story and this OVA is that Hiroomi plays the lead role and we discover how his relationship with Akihiko began. It also explains the somehow vague beginning of the parent story.

The art was as captivating as ever. Kyoto Animation keeps up the good work of providing us with good read more

Basically the backstory of how all the main characters in Kyoukai no Kanata met. This may be the prequel to the series story wise but I would watch Kyoukai no Kanata first. Everything will make much more sense in this if you watch the main series first. Plus some of this may be considered spoilers to events in Kyoukai no Kanata.

The story mainly focuses on the Nase family, Hiroomi and Mitsuki in particular, and how they become involved with Kanbara. The majority of the other main characters from Kyoukai no Kanata are in this special as well.

I always enjoy seeing backstories for characters, and this read more

This was a nice little 1 episode explanation onto a lot of the character's relationships and past experiences and I think it's great. However, my thoughts on it are like it being episode 0 or 13 of the original show, therefore my score remains the same as with my opinions of it to the season 1 anime of Beyond the Boundary.

As with opinions on viewing order, I suggest watching this BEFORE the original show. While some users may claim that it has minor spoilers, I wouldn't consider the spoilers anything important when it comes down to the big points of the show. Plus that and read more
