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. 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 read more

As a TLDR; Taifuu no Noruda while certainly not a masterpiece has more than enough charm and intrigue to warrant spending half an hour watching.

It immediately feels through the visuals and the radio presenter's introduction of sorts, like a much older anime than it is. With its setting on Okinawa I immediately drew a connection to the early episodes of Blood plus. The story is quite simple and common on the surface where a boy finds a mysterious girl only to find she will die to achieve read more

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

Well, for this particular film, Ishida and Arai decided to flip their roles of Director and Animator. Arai had been an animator for the late Studio Ghibli, now being quite involved with Studio Colorido, he makes his directorial debut with Taifuu no Noruda. 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
