Ajin OVA is not so important to watch if you're reading the manga, especially if we talk about the second episode..
Episode 1 - Another tragic story about being an Ajin.. Nakamura Shinya has something in common with Nagai Kei, still being interesting.. even if it were something we saw already
Episode 2 - A funny episode with our characters, something simple at first.. but impressive at the end
Episode 3 - Satou's past, huh?.. Some of the things we saw in the manga already.. like the first episode.. it was exaggerated, very.. some people are disappointed of this.. but I liked it, hey guys, COME
ON.. It's Satou-San!!!!.. everything about my bae will be great, doesn't matter if it follows the manga or not.
///little spoilers here if u don't want them don't read.
So i seen there is no review about this OVA so i thinked why not since i enjoyed the series and this OVA series is pretty good.
Ajin....Demi-Humans who are immortals , can die many times and wake up...pretty good concept ?
This time in this OVA you'll see different characters , a different main who gets to know that he is an Ajin , pretty interesting to me.
Let's start...the protagonist has a pretty how to say...mediocre life ? study's and stuff ? party's sometimes ? Well all's gonna change when he chosse to go to a
party instead to study with his friend.
I'll let you see for yourselves to not spoil much. I give it 8.
The art is pretty nice i mean it's the same as the series , and at first i didn't like it but now it catched me , i give it 8.
The sound is very good , that opening rocks. And the situations etc , i give it 8.
About the characters there isn't much since it's only an OVA with 2 episodes , but it's okay for an OVA series,i give it 6.
I enjoyed this very much to see a different main struggling to survive instead of Kei , it was kinda interesting , i give it a 9
Ajin fans will sure enjoy this OVA.
At the time I'm writing this OVA, there's only the first one available, so this will only be about that one.
It's pretty much the same level as the first season of "Ajin". You get the same art, music, atmosphere and all. The characters are mostly different though; Shinya Nakamura's the MC. He has been mentioned in the series frequently, which is no wonder, since he's the very first Ajin to be found in Japan.
And that's what this story's about. 20 minutes aren't able to give him and his pal a great character depth. Actually, it's more like the first episode of "Ajin" with Kei. Seriously,
that could have been the start as well, it's got a similar pace. However, as a OVA, you don't get that much depth.
It is still very interesting to watch, since Shinya probably will be of more relevance in the second season. Also, you get to see a liiiittle bit of Tosaki's past to that time.
Since I doubt anyone'll watch this before watching the series, there's no point in reviewing music, sound and art. It's the same, which means in my case: it's great!
The OVA obviously answers the thing that disturbed him on the episode in the season one with Satou. Which I say, if your head's have been slashed off or got ripped on some accident that could actually make you die, your own body only owns you. There's no "new" personality or mindset when you saw your own head regenerating because obviously, you died anyway. And Nakamura Shinya's multiple IBM is quite answering also to the scene of Izumi where she thought that Kei (or Ajins) can't produce multiple IBM at the same moment but made it really possible and I really like the whole
circle of the story. Although I know the OVA is incredibly short, probably the ongoing season two answers the remaining questions and revelations are always ahead. We'll see if Tosaki's past with his fiancee will get a screen flashback too.
