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 read more

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", being a follow up to "Saikano" (duh!) was probably doomed to mediocrity at best before it even began. Comprising just two episodes, it would have been hard for this set of OVA's to turn around the bad impression that the series left me with.

[Note: Contains possible spoilers for the main series since I'm assuming that you've seen it already if you're reading this.]

Perhaps due to shadow of the aforementioned bad impression of the series, I couldn't really get into "Another Love Song". No surprise there, then. But what is surprising is how vast the improvement this OVA is on the series.
