Fans of Biri Biri rejoice, finally we can see Biri Biri back in action again :)

Story :
As you can see from the description, this OVA can be considered as the continuation from Level Upper Arc. In short in here we'll see some of after effect from Level Upper Arc in Biri Biri's life. Now if you are wandering whether the story will be interesting enough given the length of this anime only 34 minutes long, you don't have to worry about that. For a 34 minutes long OVA, the story is well directed and the pace is just right. It will keep your interest read more

For some reason, I've always liked Railgun side-story more than Index. It's good to see Misaka Mikoto in all her glory since she doesn't appear that often (or as often as I like) in the main series. So for all "biribiri" fans out there, J.C. Staff gave us a wonderful present in the form of an OVA.

So far, I watched the series a while back when it was airing, and just watched it recently, and yes, it was interesting, an OVA added to the series block, it never failed me to expect something new to this, no comedy was cliche and somehow connected to the story of the biribiri season so far.

TL;DR, Showcases the absolute best of what the show has to offer, shame it's only a side story.

Misaka's character is very well demonstrated through this story, showing how her racing mind is always worried about perceptions pertaining to her, both tangible and intangible. It becomes a physical impairment which is followed through with successive scenes of very cool transitions through time, coupled with paranoia and steadily deduced problem solving. Sure, the ending is conjured from nothing, but the general tone of the series is kept throughout the ride.

The character interactions are at their best here without being crammed in like many other short specials. It read more
