"Are you saying being with me is a punishment for you ?"
I really wish I had of seen this first and then the rest of series not at all. It's not great but it's better. It has a story that works on its own. It's characters have motivations that make sense and are consistent within the very small window of the short. There's some nice complexity to them. Even when the story pulls crap out of it's rear end it's not that bad. That's great and it's really sad because the rest of the series and all the stupidity brought my
This is the first time I have given a review where overall and enjoyment weren't exactly the same, and it's all because of the rest of the series hanging around this OVA's neck.
In short it's that one shot manga or short story that you really like and starts a series or manga that later gets killed by the endless volumes of stupid filler, throw away characters and cheap plot devices that you wish could of just been as good as the one shot.
Minai: Well by Jimminy Cricket she gets to be a real girl here. Unlike the main series where she is used as a throw away plot device you just don't give a crap about.
Isaki: Still an asshole. But an asshole you can appreciate a bit. I actually felt a bit of good for him. Try again and this time don't screw up.
Those two are the story. Ouri and Makina don't play much of a part and that's a good thing.
Presentation: Same art, music, voice acting as the rest of the series. It's pretty good. Not as much fan service.
TL:DR nice little short watch it by itself chances are good you will have no regrets.
What did you think of this review?
