THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A romance between an aspiring artist(?) and his new found "love interest", they share their fantasies, accompanied by several songs. (I think)
I need to rewatch it with a better audio (all the dialogue lines in the beginning were hardly audible with maximal sound output), a translation would help too especially on the songs (who look like an important part of the narrative during the onirical sequences). Until then, no scoring.

If anyone has a better encoding than the old youtube video I saw, please contact me.

edit: of course, if someone who understand japanese well decides to put here the global meaning of their early discussion, it would be great.


edit @mutsuto Sorry, it wasn't. But apart from the discussion I mentionned in my post, the (very) few other phrases were all understandable without knowing japanese.

Is this subbed?

ia can't check myself as your source is down.

edit: @Rei366 thank you for the quick update and response.

so it is like a little exposition at the start, then music videos for the remaining 50 minutes?

if that's the case I'd be interested in watching it, if i knew of a source.

@mutsuto Yes, a few lines here & there, if I remember it well, Not a sufficient reason to skip it if you're interested, I think.

Odd little flick. I have no idea what happened in it.

This one seems to have better quality: https://www.bilibili.com/video/av1147831
No sub. But it's mostly a music video. Some basic Japanese would be enough to get you through the dialogue.

There is a rip by PPP-Raws that is better quality than either of these online video links being passed around. Not going to say where to find it, I'd rather not get banned and it's easy enough to find. Though all rips of this will have problems as the original laserdisc release is messed up according to a post by the original rippers that I've read.

I just tried watching this, and I would say there is a fair more dialogue than people make out in this OVA. Maybe it's only in the first chunk of the anime, but it was enough that I felt that I was missing a fair bit of the story (and maybe an explanation as to why they can go in and out of fantasy realms).

Also, I will say that people that go around proclaiming things like this "don't need subs to enjoy it" should refrain from doing so or state that you yourself didn't need subs to enjoy it. When you do this you are effectively nullifying any sub group's interest in subbing it. I've seen this happen time and time again with video game fan translations, and I would assume it would be the same for anime subs as well. Translation groups just think "well, people don't need a translation to enjoy this, so why bother translating it" where in some cases some people might rather play it translated, and other cases it's just some one played ten minutes of the game, saw that the spoken dialogue was in english, and then went to every gaming forum they could think of to proclaim it didn't need to be translated. Then because of those people it never gets translated. Think a bit before making the proclamation that something doesn't need a sub/translation to be enjoyed. Thank you.
