An OVA released in 1990, Nineteen seems to have slipped into the vast abyss of overlooked anime.


Well, with it's story alone, I don't think that Nineteen will win over too many fans. It is presented as a somewhat standard coming-of-age teenage love story the likes of which has been told many times through both live-action and animated film. It's nothing groundbreaking, but we are at least given a coherent plot with a proper climax and resolution.


Backgrounds are all very detailed and well done. It's fun to see all of the name brand products and familiar places that are included. There are also a read more

The worst day of the year has just drawn to a close. That dreaded day that begins with the chocolate and roses and ends with the kissing and the sex. February 14 may very well be Valentine’s Day but what about all us roneri brothers out there? Those currently out of a relationship or are part of forever alone. If February 14 is Valentine’s Day, I hereby, decree February 21st as All bro’s day; a festival of camaraderie, bro fisting, and general misguided misogyny. What better way to celebrate our lonely celibate lives than by sitting here with me and reviewing another series that does read more

So to start, the plot is mostly an excuse to string a series of amazing music vidoes together. The musical selection in this OVA is the best thing about the whole production so the decision to go all out on the music video sections is the correct one. Now, seemingly the plot is mediocre and the character's motivations lacking but this is only because they represent something much bigger. I am going to somewhat spoil the plot here but honestly this is an art project not a to the book story. Everything means something and honestly watching the OVA through a lens is much more read more

Never has a story so petulant and juvenile been given such adult and mature artistic treatment. Visually speaking, this is probably one of the most inspired short OVAs I have ever seen - especially considering that it doesn't feature gunplay, tentacles, or car chases. It plays like a time capsule of 1990 - baggy suits, club dancing, euro-sounding pop. But where it all falls apart is the predictable clumsy handling of relationships - freighted with the confusing (to us gaijin) baggage of Japanese dating and gender culture (and it's unfortunate but predictable misogyny). read more
