Bundled with 5bp's Yahari Game Demo Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku game for the PlayStation Vita. It adapts a story focusing on Iroha Isshiki from volume 10.5 of the original light novel.
Girls are made of sugar and spice, and all things nice.
The “nice thing” that Isshiki Iroha had. It was sweet, yet spicy. And it was probably bitter and sour. Her “nice thing” was so bothersome that you wouldn’t be able to understand unless you experienced it for yourself.
And without a doubt, Isshiki wasn’t the only one who had something of that nature as the two girls whom I was fairly close with in my own way had it as well.
Just what could it be, I wonder?
This was the Whole summary of Volume 10.5 which could be the date (Not really a date but kinda sweet
tho) Having the two of them truly acts as a couple.. ... and the three of them hanging out in Chiba.. Which is something that Yuigahama is lacking much in a few scenes. The way Yukinoshita follows Hachiman.. (Ahmm.. She really wants to get close to him).. Yukinoshita is very atttached to cats and That "Nya" sound thing.. Yah!! That's so cute. After that They really made some memories onto themselves. it’s likely they end up trying to keep our manifested, awry feelings held together.
Last Hachimans Ideology :
And lastly, hugged closely from both sides, Yukinoshita, although slightly vexed, was blushing red with embarrassment.
Just how many more days of these normal trivialities could we continue to accumulate from here on?
Just what kind of pain would accompany the nostalgic sight of these photos when we became old enough?
In thinking all of that, I pressed the shutter.
Hopefully Better to Rewatch whether you find the true meaning of genuine in the whole episode All Over Again.... :D
Okay, this is my first review so please go easy on me.
Oregairu has always been an anime mainly based on dialogue, characters expressions and emotions, especially for season 2. This OVA is no different from the second season either. Though it was made mostly for fun and for the enjoyment of the viewers after the series of drama from the original series, there are still scenes where you feel the pain and awkwardness of the characters. Usually, I don't give OVA high scores for story as literally nothing happen. But I gave this one a 9/10 mainly because of the life-like interactions of the casts
and how it did the LN justice. We get to see a lot about Iroha's true personality and how sly she is. This is also connected to why I gave the art and characters a 10. The scenery looks great just like season 2 (Even the fingers movement). And since I am a reader of the light novel, this was part of my hype ever since it was announced. Overall, I never expected that I would enjoy an OVA this much.
Spoiler-free review of the ''Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku'' OVA (TL;DR at the end of the review.)
(Note: This is my first review and my way of reviewing is a bit weird sometimes, so try to bear with me. Also, English isn't my first language, so there might be a few errors throughout the review. Enjoy reading nevertheless!)
This OVA was just plain amazing! This one is one of the very few that manage to successfully keep the same tone as the series. Without further ado, let's dive right in the details!
The story is nothing special. Hachiman goes out with the main
girls of the 2nd season, first with Iroha, then with Yui and Yukino, period. That's it. Quite the cliche story for an OVA. There isn't any commendable progression since it's a one-episode story. What makes it unique though is the way the story was executed, and by that I mean...
For me, no company can surpass Feel when it comes to smooth animation, not even Ufotable or KyoAni. Feel's animation fits Oregairu perfectly. All of the characters' expressions and body movements are done in extremely close detail and could hint a lot of turning points for the series. The backgrounds are also pretty amazing, also done in utmost detail. So if you're like me and enjoy such smooth and beautiful animation like it's 60 FPS, you can understand why I gave it a 10.
Nothing out of the ordinary here. I don't pay a lot of attention to OSTs in anime, but Oregairu's are an exception. Great tracks that are memorable thanks to Kakeru Ishihama's amazingness!
Oregairu has the most unique characters I've seen in anime so far. Unique, intriguing and inspiring personalities and ideologies. What I loved a lot about the 4 characters in this OVA is that a few aspects of their personalities were explained or became much more clear, to me at least, not thanks to the plot, but as I mentioned previously, thanks to the clever animation of the characters. That's a solid 10 from me!
Despite being a one-episode story, the enjoyment was the same for me. I enjoyed every single thing about Zoku, the artstyle, the OST, the plot, the character development, the feels (no pun intended), literally everything, and this OVA is on the exact same page.
TL;DR: If you love the series, but think that this OVA might be a waste of your time (Speaking from experience), think again! It gives off the same vibe as the series, so if you loved it, you'll love this too! I mean, look at the score, it's obviously worth checking out!
Although it isn't exactly long, I'll post a tldr regardless:
1.Havent watched the original series yet? : The ova feels exactly like the anime and lives up to the hopes of the fans. Therefore this high rating.
2. Liked season 1,disliked Zoku : Maybe you won't appreciate it.
3. Liked season 1, love season 2 even more : The wait is over, you can probably rewatct it till they publish another few volumes and bring about a season 3.
I've met people who liked the good old Oregairu part one and are put off by Zoku since things turned from being light hearted to intense. But then
there are people who liked the show even more after Zoku. I obviously fall in the latter category.
For those of you who liked season one over Zoku, this OVA won't be that memorable since it re-enact the feels from Zoku. Also, if you haven't watched the series and somehow stumbled upon this page and are wondering why everyone's giving it a 10 or so, the answer probably lies in the fact that people either absolutely love this anime or hate it. And since the release happened only yesterday probably the ones who disliked the show didn't bother to check out the OVA.
Oregairu has always been a special anime for me. Also, since I just finished the OVA chances are that my opinions will be biased. But I don't even care about them being biased anymore since the mighty 8man and gang are back after almost an year.
The story wasn't any deep, for those of you who aren't aware the 1st part of the OVA is a Canon and the second one isn't. The artwork was awesome as usual. The OVA completely retained the original style of the anime as mentioned by some other reviewers.
