It’s not very often you come across a bonus episode or two that are so unique and refreshing that you have to take a deep breath after each one and reflect on how well it suits the series it is based upon and how much entertainment value it adds to the whole package.

The characters are standard for anime, but it would have been interesting to see how they would have developed over a series.

Music was a bit boring and nothing really to get excited about, but it does the job.
