Synopsis

Before Chise became the "ultimate weapon," there was another—Lieutenant Mizuki. A battle-hardened military woman, she volunteered for an experimental procedure after injuries left her unable to return to the battlefield. As the prototype ultimate weapon, Lieutenant Mizuki was highly successful on the battlefield, however, as the first candidate, her development was limited.

When a more suitable candidate to become the weapon, Chise, is forced into the military, Lieutenant Mizuki thinks that she is silly, weak, and unsuited for the role. As the only other person to have undergone the procedure, however, Lieutenant Mizuki can hear Chise's thoughts and is the only one who understands her. As the war rages on and Chise's development progresses, Lieutenant Mizuki discovers more about Chise, ultimate weapons, and herself.

Going into this, I thought Saikano couldn't get any more depressing than it already had been. I was promptly proved wrong.

Another Love Song at first focuses on Chise's early days as the ultimate weapon, and follows her through just past the halfway mark of the actual series. Scenes from the series are intercut throughout, just so you know where you are in the series when all this is happening, and it's a real help. It also fills in some details that were missing in the series, so it was a nice touch. I still would've liked them to explain the anime ...

Sort of a Saikano side story...
The thing I liked about this is that was was a lot more fixated on the
Science Fiction elements I had initially expected from Saikano. This 2 part OVA succeeds in delivering that.This OVA introduces another character of the military side of the story, explaining (but also kind of making confusing) the military point of view in it's exploitation of the Ultimate Weapon and their justifications for doing so in the first place.

So, my point is Shuuji and Chise's point of view -> Military point of view = a very good thing.

Bottom Line: Watch this if you've watched Saikano.

"Saikano: Another Love Song" is an anime that really tugs at your heartstrings. It takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions as you follow Chise and Shuji's journey through the devastation of war and the challenges of their relationship.

The art and music in the anime are just beautiful and add so much depth to the story. You can't help but get emotionally invested in the characters and their struggles, and the way they develop throughout the series is truly captivating.

I have to warn you though, this anime is not for the faint of heart. It can be really heavy and intense at times, and it's ...
