Cutesy.

So basically this OVA for me is mainly for fan service purposes only.
Will not satisfy your craving for the anime.

Though I must say that it sort of opens your heart more with the green dragon and makes you a bit more curious about his back story as well as the yellow's since we all know they had tiny bit of back story compared to the first two dragons.

What I like about this ova is the fact that clearly the whole gag is getting along well, and I just can'twait to see more brotherly interactions of the 4 dragons.

CHARACTER:
Well, if you have seen the series, you know that all read more

This is my first review, so I hope it's helpful! I just wanted to write this since all of the other reviews seemed to only be for the first OVA. I'll keep it brief and I'm not going to put individual scores or anything, sorry!

So far, two OVAs have been released. The first one was a cutesy little story about all of them taking a trip to some hot springs. It wasn't horrible or anything, but it really was nothing special and was simply adapted from one of the omake from the manga. While it did explore Kija's backstory a bit, it was mostly just read more
