I was not really interested in this ova at first because i read the manga and watched the anime and already knew how this story goes however it was very enjoyable and i am glad i saw this.

Story: 8 If you watched or read the anime or manga you already know what this story is about the love story between bandit ban and elaine the guardian of the fountain of youth.This showed ban's past and the reason why he was obsessed with bringing elaine back form the dead.Both ban and elaine were lonely persons who found love between each other.Elaine being alone for read more

Note: This Is A Review Of The First Episode Not The Entire OVA
I Stopped Writing All My Advance Reviews Just So That I Could Right This Review

Story: 9/10 All us viewers including me wanted to know how and why Ban cared about Elaine, forest and what was his past like and we got it in this OVA. The main season did focus nearly 15-20 mins of it time brifely showing us the story but that was just a small fraction of what truly had happened and why Ban was in jail. So hats off to the producers that they showed his side story as most read more

Some folks might say that these 2 OVA episodes are more for the people who have read the manga, and that if you've only seen the anime (season 1) it isn't worth it to watch these.

Those folks are WRONG.

WATCH these 2 OVA episodes no matter if you have or haven't read the manga. I have not read the manga; I only watched the anime. And I loved these side stories! They did a great job filling in any questions you may have had after just watching season 1.

Man, I really hope that the announced new release for next year is a read more

This ended up making a nice ova series. You get to learn more about Ban's backstory and then you get a 22 minute ride full of really funny specials all put into one compilation. Out of the male cast, Ban is my second favorite so learning parts of his backstory that weren't in the main series was pretty entertaining and it further explains why him and Elaine cared so much for each other. There's no point of breaking down a group of really funny specials so I'm not going to bother explaining episode 2. If the original series entertained you , you'll read more

There isn't much to review. If you've seen the anime, you know the story, bit this gives a greater insight into the characters in question. This is much appreciated.

To be honest, I wouldn't recommend this to someone who doesn't read the manga because manga readers are the intended recipients (with this being an OVA bundled with the manga as opposed to the anime. This works if you haven't read the manga, but there is a scene that would happen at the start of what would be the second season that would be spoiled in the send that it wouldn't throw you for a loop as read more
