I don't think people are gone when they die instead they reborn in our hearts and stay in our memories(can't remember the exact dialogue but the message is there) - Kaito Kirishima

well if your craving for some more then this might satisfy you a little but do mind that the OVA takes place after the last episode of the Anime.

Prior knowledge: AnoNatsu Original Series

Depending on what you thought of the parent series you might have been all for this special episode or ignoring it outright. The original series was a good example of teenage love triangles.

Ano Natsu special/OVA.

All I can say is WARNING: If you've enjoyed the original series don't bother watching this. Only watch this if you like nostalgic moments and want to be reminded of this series.
