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 read more

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.

Not gonna go in-depth as this is only a half hour film.

The film takes place on a certain isolated island, at a certain middle school, and on the eve of the culture festival. A boy quits baseball after playing his whole life and has a fight with his best friend. Then, they suddenly meet a mysterious, red-eyed girl named Noruda, and a read more

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

Story
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 read more
