This was recommend to me by a friend who said "OMG YOU HAVE TO SEE HAPPY WORLD!" Never have I felt so betrayed by a friend. There's nothing in this anime. You can see stuff like this but better in something like Ah! My Goddess or any ecchi series involving angels.

Story: Poor. The "poor kid" is cursed with the worst life ever. The problem is it doesn't seem too bad. He just gets into alot of stupid accidents. He still has his entire family who seem in good health. It's kind of....comical the unhappiness and lack of read more

Honestly, this OVA is an embarassment. Bad art coupled with a lame 3 episode arc from the early BORING days of the mangu do this franchise no justice. Do yourself a favor, read the manga, pretend you didnt watch this OVA or allow it to influence your opinion of Happy World!

I should be reviewing the mangu. Heh.

But, to sum up, don't judge the franchise based on this.

Happy world is a shy and somewhat unknown anime. When i first saw it on a listing i was drawn to the title. It seemed so bold for a name that i wanted to read more into it. The synopsis was not unappealing but i had to see for myself what exactly this had to offer me.

First things first. My "reviews" system is explained on a blog entry. Which can be found through my profile.

For 3 episode OVA it had intriguing story and felt like would been a fun series. It had quite an interesting concept which made viable for some shounen action, some cute fanservice and probably interesting storyline. Found it a bit sad, but quite cute. Can't imagine how story would go, maybe will read manga.

Note: Now that I check it, I actually have read the manga. And gave it 8/10. But probably was one time enjoyment, as seems I cannot recall it's content at all. Well, makes reviewing read more
