The OVA Deimos no Hanayome is, in one short sentence, a glorified demonstration of the manga. Does it make it bad? Not quite, but it definitely represents wasted potential.

First of all, do you see that pretty interesting premise for the plot in the synopsis? Yeah, forget about it. The main plot is told in the first few minutes and the rest of the OVA dedicates itself to a side story which is pretty much filler, so no revengeful gods, unconventional love or something like that. This is by far one of the greatest flaws here: you've got yourself some good enough source material for an read more

How on earth did this pilot not get picked up for more episodes!?

This was clearly meant to be a episodic anime about a girl who is the reincarnation bride of deimos (based on the Greek myth)! And has him giving her guidance and advice (similar to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night’s Maria mixed with Luka from UraBoku).

Judging by this first episode alone, this could of became one of my favourites. (I love episodic detective series like Darker Than Black), but unfortunately, we only got one episode.

The art for this anime is dark and spectacular (even though they use one of the animation scenes 3 times, read more

Another case of "it's very pretty to look at". But without the context of the manga it's based on, there isn't a great deal to latch onto.

(And even after looking up that context, this feels even more random than before. Why not make an OVA covering most of the manga instead of just this random chapter???)

Overall, I enjoyed the visuals far more than anything else in this. I really am a sucker for 80s anime in that sense. But aside from that, it offers little else of value when it's the most random-ass story set inside a far more interesting story that is barely touched read more

In all my life, I've never witnessed this degree of animation overkill. Studio Madhouse had the opportunity to produce an OVA adapting a shoujo manga where a cursed man pursues a beautiful teen so that her body can be used as the vessel for his wife, whose flesh is rotting away. Sadly, what we get is a random chapter from a 17 volume manga. I don't blame Madhouse for not producing a complete adaptation because, for 1, they were likely commissioned for just 1 episode, and two, I don't think the manga was ever completed either.

I consider Bride of Deimos to be an artistic read more
