OK, what was that? It’s either a big “so what?” or a big mistake. Either is just fine.

What an absurd storyline. It was worlds away from what Rumbling Hearts was. It went from drama to stupid in a snap. I mean, what’s with the mecha? I’m pretty sure this is the OVA for Rumbling Hearts, so where the heck did the mecha come from? I did say that I like Akane, in fact she was probably the only thing that was OK about this OVA, but even her presence wasn’t enough to catch my attention.

There were new characters (that teacher named Kouzuki, wasn’t that the read more

The overall story is pretty good. I really liked all the obstacles the main character had to overcome just to get accepted. However, the ending was a little disappointing but at the same time reasonable as well as weird and funny. Also, this OVA is really funny at times especially all of the mecha parodies introduced into the story line.


Not much to say here, but clean, crisp animation expected out of an OVA. Especially, the comedic scenes.


There's not much of a soundtrack to this OVA, just your typical instrumental background music. You don't really notice it at all. It really doesn't make much of an read more

OK this will be my first review so please spare me.

First of all I'll have to say that this review is extremely biased in a way. This anime makes countless references to Muv-Luv, a Visual Novel by Àge. Having played that game, this anime brings back memories, so like I said biased...

Story: 6
The story-line was not the best out there. Overused scenarios everywhere. The story about a guy who gets transferred and meets the girl of his dreams, and so on. Overused, but well brought and expanded, for a short three episode OVA show. It was good enough to prevent loss of interest, read more

Akane Maniax, almost to be considered a "sort of " sequel to the Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (Rumbling Hearts) anime. Of course, this is only for recognition and this OVA is to be treated as an OVA and nothing else - it is only a spinoff.

I'd be happy to consider if I'm being biased towards my opinion on this show, since I have afterall watched Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien earlier and grown accustomed to the characters; coincidentally, in particular Akane Suzumiya. With that said, it should not come in the way of judging this anime objectively, since it is rather hard not to treat it read more
