A typical case of too much in one OVA.
Before I start, I don’t know anything about the background of this anime. Maybe I am wrong about something or I am supposed to watch something else before this OVA. If there is anything you want to tell me, message me and I will change my review.
Ok, let’s start:
I randomly discovered this anime while scrolling through the Top-Anime Leaderboard. I recently started watching bad anime just for the enjoyment of it.
This OVA instantly had my attention:
An OVA, only one Episode and the animation looked relatively good at the first glance.
This anime has to my knowledge no other
episodes or anything else.
So it should tell the whole story, right?
This anime starts off without introducing any of the characters, throwing you right into the action. I was really confused at the beginning of the OVA and was hoping it would get better. Well, I was wrong again. The anime talks about fairys and their powers all the time. What are these? Why do they exist? What do they do? Well, none of that stuff hets answered. Apparently some kind of evil corporation is trying to steal their powers... Why? What do they need them for? What are they? Well, none of that gets answered too.
[There may be some spoilers in the next part but since its only one episode, you shouldn’t care much anyway.]
Ok, to start off, why exactly do the main characters live in a human-like world?
Obviously we get no answer. There are a lot of plotholes and the studio doesn’t bother to fill them up. The anime starts, something „important“ happens, the next „important“ thing happens. It looks like somebody took an finished anime, cut out all of the important scenes and puts them in one OVA. There is no time to get attached to the characters, no explanation whatsoever and just one „dramatic“ scene after another. The anime expects that we k ow all of the characters, get what they are doing and wants to get is attached to them? Sorry, not in 24 minutes. Maybe take some more time TO EXPLAIN the next time.
The animations are, what should I say, average and do not look that bad, it looks like a öot of effort went i to the characters and the setting looks generally pretty interesting.
Its pretty sad that everything just got put into one small episode, with more time this could have easily been a solid 8. The effort that was put into the character design goes to waste and the story is too rushed to be even somewhat enjoyable.
If the anime would have had a bit more time to explain, it could have been really good. The choice to put it all into one episode ruined everything.
I can’t give it more than a 3/10, and rwo out of these points are just because it *could* have been good.
(Im pretty tired at the time of writing this, so please don’t hate on me for the trash I just wrote. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.)
