I watched the Air Gear anime years ago, but then later learned of a manga, so I read all of it and loved it. I'll clear up a few things for the people who haven't read the manga.

This OVA is basically a random part of the story, many chapters after the anime ended. The art is really close to the manga art as well, so that's why it's different from the original anime.

After watching the OVAs again, I just wish they remade the entire anime, and continued it to the end.

Pretty cool to hear and see Kururu in an anime for the read more

ahhhh Air Gear: Break on the Sky.....on one hand, I like the fanservice, strangely, and found the battles to be quite enjoyable....on the other, I despise how poor the story is, how strange the are characters, and how this seemly came out of nowhere.

Air Gear: Kuro no Hane to Nemuri no Mori or more awkwardly known as, Break on the Sky, is a collection of 3 OVA's that take place after the storyline of the animated series...I think; it looks like it is supposed to be more in tune with the manga which would explain why it didn't make a lot of sense.

Essentially, it read more

So... here is a short review:

I personally think, that the art wasn't that good... I expected much more from the anime that took my hear away *crying* but it didn't meet my expectations.

Story: Okay, the story wasn't bad... i mean, it just follows 2 battles out of the manga and so for many neutrall viewers it may seem like some "Amazing Fight"

Overal: As a fan of Air Gear i will give 10 (because they diserved it) and say one thing : Except for the art that was some crazy ass fight. I rewatched it severall times and it's just the best. I can't read more

it's gonna be fun to talk about the ova's for one of my favorite manga. The kuro hane ova's are like a small glimpse of what the air gear anime would have been like it or got the second season it deserves. It's an underrated manga series and could use some more fans. These 3 ova's sum up everything there is to love about the series.

The first episode adapts the chapters concerning the fight between Ikki and Ringo while the two proceeding ones adapts the inorganic net arc. A strong sense of tension and action is ever present and the fights are read more
