Since the night of "given's" first live performance, the relationship between Mafuyu Satou and Ritsuka Uenoyama has been smooth sailing. Their shared love of music reinforces their bond, and every moment spent together makes them more inseparable. Nevertheless, there will come times when they will suffer setbacks, with both of them consumed by their inner turmoil.

I was afraid that they were not going to animate Uenoyama being jealous after the movie was released but this was more perfect than I could imagine. Doing the movie seperate showed us a clear image of the story between Akihiko-Haruki-Ugetsu and this OVA made sure we also felt how the song made UeMa feel.

I love how Mafuyu wrote it after being inspired by Ugetsu and also his OWN loss. It was just...PERFECTION.


fave cute scenes:
- mafuyu kisses uenoyama first
- mafuyu in yukata

this ova is an adorable mixture of gay panic and raw emotion. while short, I feel it gives insight into their relationship so that we see them as what they are, teenagers with no clue what love is. the episode flashes quickly from comedy to serious moments which makes it feel as if its short stories at the end of a book but, they are directly related and do not lose track of the main goal of the episode which I believe to be developing the relationship between Mafuyu and Uenoyema in an environment that is not the fast-paced drama of the original show.

These seem like the 30 minutes that the movie was missing, but I understand why they divided it into this little 30-minute episode, here they show us the point of view of the protagonists when the movie was happening at the same time, it's simple and true I think I expected a lot from this episode but I was left with something more interesting, I think that as such what was shown on the screen was more like an epilogue for this couple and I felt like it was the final episode of the main series.
I think that if I will get here after watching ...
