How many times can there be a bath episode before an SoL realises how ridiculously outdone it is? What more can be done? The male protagonist is pervy, females are seen doing something boring. It's the same old junk anyone has seen anywhere elsewhere. It's stupid. the only reason this is a 2/10 and not 1/10 is because the idea of going to a bath house is far more likely to take place than some other 'specials' I've watched were even less of a story has taken place.
Nothing terrible like the show itself, so no real complaints. However, the choice to exploit the female body
in such a degree should be enough for anyone in their right mind to subtract a point in this regard. However, I won't considering I knew what I was walking into when I started the show from the beginning, and I know these OVA's are usually a waste of time, but finish them out anyway because that's what I do. I complete things.
But I digress. The animation is fine, backgrounds are simple. Scenes are limited to create easer and cheaper animation for the studio.
Fine, I guess. VA work is alright but nothing extravagant happens, soooo...
Our male lead was never perverted, per-say, but this episode decides to make him a legitimate pervert despite him being uninterested in his sisters like a normal human being. This change is ridiculous and stupid. Also, the sisters have little-to-no character in this as well. They're just bodies. It's dumb.
I want my 3 minutes back.

This episode was made because every anime has to have some kind of fan service right? You know something is pretty bad when I have more to review about this one episode than I did for the original show.
Yep, bath house scene, very original. Completely cut out that first bit and you have a regular but shortened Danchigai episode, which is what I was expecting. This would have gotten a 1 but the 2nd half redeemed the episode even if it is just a little bit because it was at least somewhat closer to the original show.
Haruki had no interest in his
sisters but now he suddenly wants to see them naked? I found it refreshing that Haruki knew his boundaries as a sibling but this completely threw that thought out the window.
Sound and Art:
It's the same as the original episodes. 7/10 for both.
It's not that I dislike fan service, because in my time of watching anime I've seen quite a few bath house/hot springs episodes that didn't bother me at all. But rather it was fact that this completely strayed away from what this show originally was. 2/10
In contrast to the two other people, I have read the 4-koma of Danchigai before watching this 150 sec. special.
Since reading the review shouldn't take longer than watching the special, I make it short:
This special is a fanservice one, this special was exactly as the 4-koma version and so the characters are not out of character or anything else.
If you watched everything up to this point and you think "this was mediocre" -yes even then, I would like you to start the 4-koma of the same name, since the way it is presented in the anime is really bad compared to the manga,
which us a better timing for the jokes, the art of the characters and their reaction faces, has some really creative ways for storytelling and the use of its 4 panel structure.
