On the eve of a junior high school's cultural festival, Typhoon No. 8 slowly approaches the isolated Okinawan town of Naha. A mysterious girl wearing a strange necklace suddenly appears alongside the storm, catching Shuuichi Azuma off guard.

After getting into a fight with his best friend Kenta Saijou over his decision to quit the baseball team, Azuma notices the same girl standing atop an electrical tower when lightning strikes, cutting power to the school and causing her to tumble down below. Unwilling to stay in the same room as Saijou, Azuma runs off to rescue the strange girl as the storm intensifies.

At the time I'm writing this, 366 people have taken the time to rate this anime, but none have written a review. So I might as well be the first.
First, I'd like to point out that this is a short animation, lasting only 30 minutes. As such, it's fair to say you can completely ignore the review and just watch this OVA yourself, as no reviewer can be a better judge of what pleases you than yourself! As at worst you'll only have "wasted" half an hour of your life. However, if for some obscure reason you still prefer to read the review first, carry ...

Taifuu no Noruda is the result of attempting to squeeze a movie into half an hour. A lot of things are poorly explained if at all. The storyline is incredibly predictable, mostly because the characters are flat and cliche. The art was decent, nothing special, especially when compared to modern standards. The background music wasn't bad, but the voice actors sounded flat and boring. This is especially noticeable during exclamations; the characters do not sound scared or excited at all. The characters as stated before are incredibly cliche. The main character for the sake of wanting to make his own decisions decides to risk his ...

I won't lie. I was lured in by the art and it'd only take 27 minutes to watch it anyway, so I might as well. It seemed to have potential, but the rating said otherwise.

The story seems interesting enough for a movie. Sadly, it was poorly executed. You get way too little information, you have no real idea what moves the characters and the ending fails to satisfy. It certainly left a bad aftertaste.
Ironically, though, it didn't fail to get the point across. You get what it's about and how it's resolved. If it would have had more time, this could have been so ...
