For an OVA about a guy with a magic earlobe, this anime is woefully mediocre.
A young man has inherited the power of "The Dragon's Ear" which gives him superpowers. Every time he removes his earring, he goes from cute fop to wild-haired Lothario, able to use the superpowers of incredible luck, weather control, hyper-seduction kisses, super agility, and the ability to see the future. These he uses to conquer an evil clan of women and save the girl he loves.
The series starts out pretty tame, but by the end of the finale, the show devolves into bonkers. One would assume that a story
about a man with a magical earlobe would be bonkers from the start, but it isn't until the last half of the second (and last) episode that all suspension of disbelief demands to be put aside. Villains emerge from layers of disguises, venomous moths attack in clouds, needle spitting becomes a fighting technique, and a skinless Goliath learns the value of human camaraderie.
Is the animation good? Reader, it is not. How's the music? A fan of vaporwave might enjoy it, but to the average viewer, the synths provide nothing special. Character designs? They're okay, but nothing a regular anime-watcher hasn't seen before. All in all, this is a middle-of-the-road effort.
Being just a scant 2 episodes, those curious about it can consume the whole series in half a lazy afternoon, but might walk away wishing they'd watched something else.
