Oh man that was a train wreck. I seriously don't understand all these works connected to Aura Battler Dunbine and Byston well. They are a total mismash of ideas that don't connect up at all. Even as stand alone titles they make practically little sense because the whole thing is just action based. There is no story development, character development or motivations really, at least they aren't built up in such a way that I could bring myself to care for even a second about them.
Nothing about this was entertaining beyond the ED song lol. The animation was pretty good for the time but I think was made for HD but so far as I can tell never released in HD so it was messy looking also. This OVA was really bad and didn't need to exist at all.
And with that I'm finished with my Byston Well marathon. Not something I would push people towards doing. The original series is solid but not without issues, the New Tales of Byston Well OVA from a few years later looks really cool and for only 3 episodes was entertaining enough imo. Garzey's Wing is just forgettable though not as bad as many say so long as you don't watch the English Dub. Then finally Wings of Rean is the worst of the lot, just a complete waste of time from beginning to end.
