If you really loved the Sola anime you might disagre to my review and love this short OVA as well. Hovever if you thought it average or havn't seen the TV series I'd recommend skipping this one.
The OVA consists of of two side stories taking place at diffrent times of the original series. The first almost anytime during the first half of the series and the second is the day before episode one. It doesn't add anything new to the story nor does it dive deeper into any side story or character.
All the characters are from the original series and none is left out but
there is no character development or any deeper look into any part of the story from the original series
The art and animation is the same as in Sola, very nice, esspecialy the photos. The same goes for sound and music. Nothing new but nothing bad either.
If you wathced Sola and want more of the same this OVA isn't a bad choice but it won't last long or give you anything new. As stated in the begining I think that unless you found Sola to be one of the best animes you've seen in a long time you are better off looking for something else.
Most OVAs are known to have a very relaxed story and with minimal character development and lots of characters appearing....
The OVA series for Sola is nothing special; however, since this OVA is released after the TV series, the OVA does have a special affect and attraction to it. The last few episodes of the TV series had very intense conflicts and although the ending of this anime is great, it's certainly not the most pleasant ending. Considering that, the extremely relaxed OVA, especially the first episode, was great since most audiences do want to see all of the characters being normal again after the intense
ending of the anime series.
The first episode of the OVA happened anytime after the main character met the heroine. The 1 episode story is basically about most of the main characters going out to play. Although the story itself is nothing new, it was funny and the relief and joy of seeing all the characters acting normally is made me enjoy this episode a lot.
(First ep. rating : 9/10)
The second episode is a story that happened before the main story. This episode does feel a bit dull and was not as funny as the first episode, but it was fairly enjoyable and the ending of the episode had a great mood to it.
(Second ep. rating : 7/10)
