Unlike the main anime, this special is exactly that: special. It's like an animated short story you would read about online, or maybe even a letter you received from someone long ago about a moment in their life that was important to them. It's rather sweet and has this intimate nature to it that makes you wonder what happens afterwards, where everyone is years later, and even want to befriend those who take part. It's everything the main show wasn't.
Same problems as the main work, except, due to its length, we're saved from some boring copy/pasted backgrounds or expressions. It's a fresh work with nothing
crowding it's short runtime.
The VA work is as good as it needs to be, but what makes this better is the music. The music in the first work didn't really matter since it was a failure of a comedy, but this one is more sentimental, so the music actually has a purpose. It's quite enjoyable.
Having actual character development is nice. I was eager to see how things panned out as the special continued, and I almost imagine the real show didn't happen so things could be, well, normal for the characters. This special is normal and relatable, something the standard show didn't have.
For it's short length, and having my standards unbelievably low when walking into this thing, I was pleasently surprised by how nice this was. I would have preferred the rest of the show to be rather serious and more of a nice, cute sibling narrative. However, the main show is an incestuous 'comedy.'
