After an airplane crash during a school trip, Oribe Mutsumi and her classmates were stranded on a seemingly deserted island. Mutsumi found the other survivors, and used her wilderness knowledge to help them. She expects that they will be rescued in about three days, which doesn't seem so long to endure. However, she didn't account for the fact that the island is populated with gigantic killer insects. Her knowledge of butterflies, wasps, and more may be the only thing that will help any of her classmates survive to be rescued!

First and most importantly: skip this OVA and watch the movie instead, since this OVA is literally the same as the movie (this OVA starts at the scene roughly 15 minutes in).

Not much to review about this. It's basically a gory, insect-rape doujinshi and it's pretty bad, even by that standard.

It's harder to care about the story or characters when you get dropped in mid-story and it ends with ...

I mean obviously the animation is lazy as a bootleg mobile game and the characters are so stereotypical that they grow, age and progress through the story like a rotten apple, so what's the story about? Well it's basically a teacher and some high school students that survived a plane crash and they are ended up in a extremely generic island inhabited by giant insects and..... that's it!

(Attack of the Giant Insects)

Giant Insects. Girls with large breasts. An isolated island. This combination usually spells death, danger, and destruction. And what do you know, there will be death, danger, and destruction. There will be nudity along with several guro scenes, there will be shitty-looking CGI insects, there will be unlikable characters who do morally questionable actions, and finally there be an inconclusive ending to an otherwise terribly written story. Overall, if you are expecting a good story from this OVA, then you will be very disappointed. On the other hand, if you are expecting giant insects attacking our characters, then ...
