This series actually go in pair with each episodes of the main series. Which I find nice. Unlike what you could find with picture dramas from Code Geas for example that requires you to have seen the whole show for it not to spoil you.

I enjoyed it because it is more than just putting characters out of the show in extras where they do stuff. This can actually be both considered canon and develops a bit more the characters on a lighter tone than the main series.

So far I have not often seen such extras and I find it refreshing.

Yes! I get to see more of Best Girl Serebryakova and one of (if not) the best female VAs to go with her (anyone who has seen Inou Battle and disagrees with me is wrong)!

General: CHIBI WW2-era German lolis... yeah, alright.

Story: 8/10. I actually really enjoyed this, more than I usually ever do with chibi spinoffs, it actually did add some lore, even if it isn't canon, and gave some fun expansions to the story as well.

Art: 7/10. It's a chibi spinoff, enough said.

Sound: 6/10. Again, a chibi spinoff, enough said.

Character: I would give this an 8/10. It really manages to capture a sense of ...
