The first short story focuses on Favaro and Kaiser between the events of the first and second series as they visit Favaro's home village.

The second short story shows Kaiser as a knight commander sparring with Jeanne, and sharing the reasons they remained as Orleans Knights in the aftermath of the final battle against Bahamut.

usually when i watch special episodes of animes they are really bad, with no story and awful animation. This is clearly not the case here, they put a lot of effort making these special episodes.

Theses short stories are a sequel to the anime where the main protagonists are showcased, also a new background character is revealed. The animation is as good as in the anime, and there are some important revelations about the characters which add a nice touch to the series.

It really adds something to the main anime. It even has some light action scenes. If you enjoyed Bahamut : genesis, consider watching these ...

Wow, super underrated. These (ONA?s) were FANTASTIC. Dialogue heavy with a very bitter-sweet tone and jam-packed full of character development.

This review will be short but sweet, just like the 17 minutes in this OVA/ONA/Shorts

contains 2 compact, enclosed stories. Short1 was used to develop Favaros relationship with his mother and give you more perspective on Favaros emotions in the aftermath of S1.
Short2 is used to delve more into Jeanne's (The Saint, white knight woman) character.

Both of which were greatly appreciated and helped set up the characters ambitions for S2.

The art was nice (maybe even better than from S1)
