This short little fifty-minute OVA is... wow. Kaleido Star: Legend of Phoenix just does something that warms the cockles of your heart. The story itself is very simple, and can be summed up in one sentence: Layla Hamilton tries to find herself.

Introduction:
There are several interesting side charactes in KS, who probably no one can hate. Layla is one of them and I was overjoyed when I found out there was an OVA focused on her. “YAY, no more annoying Sora meddling with everyone’s business!” I thought. On top, the MAL summary sounds like this is solely focused on Layla and possibly could be about her first steps to become a star. Oh, boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong, could I? Warning, this contains MINOR spoilers (but by finishing KS you can probably figure them out on your own).

Story: 6/10
