Zero no Tsukaima ~Princesses no Rondo~ OVA is an one episode comedy, unrelated to the main story, that's there to get viewers laughing, and it certainly worked on me; I couldn't stop laughing. It was simple, generic, yet stupidly hilarious.
There isn't much of a story. The principal and Saito found a chest full of bikinis (don't ask how) and decided that everybody should go to the beach for a short 2-day vacation.
(girls + bikinis) x (Order of Perverts + Principal) = you know what happens.
Oh, and add a giant octopus with tentacles in that equation as well.
It was a great, hilarious OVA that everybody
should watch just for the laughs. It's definitely worth 20 minutes of your time, so enjoy it!
There's not much of a story here, the Principal and Saito find a chest full of beachwear, bikini's and swimsuits. After Saito explained what these were for, the Principal dismissed the original summerschool trip and made a new one, to the ocean. Then, fooling all the students and the princess and her bodyguard, letting them believe, that clothing is for rituals (like volleyball, and watermelon bashing >_> ) to please the God of Water (or something like that). Of course, it's starts with beachwear and swimsuits, it goes to bikini's and last but not least, swimsuits excisting out only three seashells (which is worn by
both male and femal characters).
The art is good, perhaps a bit better then most in the series, which is good of course, the animation is still no the same level, while they did a better job on the sound, the voice-actors .. acted better in my opinion, while the background music and sounds are in better quality too and since it happens between two original episodes, the OVA has the same opening and ending as the series, which are in the same quality and contain the same clips.
The characters are still the same, though we get more intimate with the female one's, and see the Order of Perverts in their natural habitat (So they wish). I'm not one to get enjoyed by ecchi anime easily, but this OVA got me. I enjoyed the first "contact" with the Giant Octopuss, and I enjoyed some several close-ups too, which I normally don't.
Some jokes, scene's and sounds made by the voice-actors are just hilarious and really make you laugh, I even laughed out loud .. twice! Which I normally don't, not by any (or at least most) comedy anime's. For people who like Zero no Tsukaima it's a fun OVA, and for the people who watched the show (and enjoyed it) for the wrong reasons, it's HIGHLY enjoyable.
Even though the story's nothing special, everything makes up for that.
I mean, there's not much to say about it.. and I don't even know why I'm writing a review. It's a single special episode of 20 mins, so during the time you read reviews about it you might as well just watch it.
What's it about? Take Zero no Tsukaima, and move it to the beach. Girls in bikinis, boys who want to peak, a bit of Louise x Saito. That's it.
And since I have to write a longer review.. the story is absolutely amazing! I would've never thought to see such a complex, flawless story being put in a mere 20 minutes. I was completely
