THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well it was okay I guess, didn't have much expectations for it but it was faithful to the premise. We got wolf girl and other beastly shenanigans with werewolves.

I'm glad they kept the violence with the blood and action. Testa and Yonaga had some chemistry I guess, wish this longer than the standard 25 minutes so they can explore more of their relationship.

Really enjoyed this. Would be nice to see a full series developed from this but I knew since it was announced it was only going to be one episode. I just figured from the announcement it would have been around 40 minutes instead of 25.

Moments of being very good but was kinda boring sadly. Fabulous idea though.

I thought it was pretty good for an ONA. A full series would be nice I think.

That was actually pretty good. Nice chemistry between Testa and Yonaga and I expected, that she would turn him after she mentioned her "cursed blood".

A continuation/full season would be cool.

Pretty good for an ONA. The fight between Testa and the bigger werewolf was cool. I didn't expect him to become one though. Would have been better if it was longer.

I enjoyed it, but I found it felt more like a prologue to an even bigger story. They better announce something, like a Manga continuation or new anime

That was the intent. This was the winner of a contest for creating a scenario, so it never had anything beyond the basic story and character introductions. With this, however, they are sort of testing the waters. If it gets a good enough reception, a continuation could be green-lit.

Didn't expect to like it that much.A war between humans and werewolfs and a protagonist who dies and receives blood to become a werewolf as well.And the main point of the show is to decipher the Luger Code so the two sides can negotiate.I hope this will be made into an actual anime in the future.

I've never watched any 1 episode only anime besides movies, so I can't really compare this show to other ones, but I loved it. They made it to develop a simple, yet great story in only 25 minutes. I really enjoyed it, and I hope they make a more detailed anime of maybe 12 episodes... I don't care if I already know part of the story, I just want more of it.

I really thought this was suppose to be a series. Maybe the ONA is just to test the waters and something will come of it.

I liked the premise. I suppose if they do go for a tv series I will watch it...even though DEEN will probably helm it : (

It sort of is. The manga and ONA were actually part of the prize for winning the contest, but with an obvious nod toward the possibility that it could be expanded based on reception. From what I saw, this has middling potential - it could drum up enough support for a continuation, but I'm not counting on it. However, it should be admitted that this suffered a self-inflicted wound in that it wasn't that great an adaptation of the material. Granted, it would have been difficult to adapt things well without multiple info-dumps, but several differences were completely unnecessary and detracting (DEEN in a nutshell) . The potential goes up a bit when you consider what was left out here.

Funny for an ONA: based on the dates, everyone seemed to have watched it on Animax or as Sat-rip.

Nothing like the premise would let you guess. Extremely basic and done a multiple time before. Nothing notable on the technical side.

Enjoyment: 1/5
Score: 5/10


@ErwinJA What are the removals and additions of the animation?

How did that win a scenario award? In that case, I would hate to see the competition, lol.

The manga had a lot more background information setting up the world, a little more character interaction, and ended differently - with Rossa working some time later and thinking about the two. The anime extended the fight.

I didn't even know this was based on a 3 chapter manga so I was very disappointed when I learned that this wasn't going to be a full TV series. That's unfortunate because this seemed like it could have been an interesting show. This 1 episode ONA though wasn't that great imo. Then again, there's only so much you can do with 25 minutes.....
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

What? That's it? Well, the premise was really interesting, but the execution was pretty questionable.

Overall, it was average. If this became a TV series one day, then I will watch it.

The manga was much better but this was okay to say the least

I wish this was a TV series or something else though (In fact, I was under the belief that it was going to be one) since there's so much room for world building and more story and characterization

Military anime is meh. I actually did expect this to be 1 episode long or something. It made sense, given how little information we knew about it before its release. Oh well. The only reason I even watched this was because it was made by Deen, and starting from Spring 2016, I've been watching everything Deen makes. As much as I would've like to say Deen's done it again, and they're saving anime, I can't say that about this anime.

well i think this was good in my opinion because man i love werewolves and this is the first anime i have watched that included werewolves in their plot. Although the entire plot was insufficient the fight was awesome between Testa and that were wolf. All i know there was a mentioning of deciphering the luger code to end the war and werewolves knew the method. How i wish there was more mhh.

A young genius boy with a tsunderewerewolf girl. Will there be some kind of Extra genre of "Romance" included? But looking at the situation, they probably don't have time for it. It's all about Survival though.

It was short and sweet. The manga itself is only 3 chapters long so it was understandable.

Somehow way worse than the manga. Awful animation contributes to that I guess. Also why is everyone calling it an ONA when it was aired on TV?

Enjoyed it a lot. The soldiers seem really incompetent, but I guess they were all werewolves?
Or maybe it was just that one. Yea now that I think about it... it does seem to be that one werewolf, so the others die.
Pretty incompetent, you got a semi-auto pistol. Most likely 9-14 rounds. at such close range, it is enough to kill them. you also got a rifle.

But I really didn't expect that guy to be a werewolf, suspicious at first. But mainly I thought it was a plot device for them to reveal info to the wolf girl. But guess not.
It was stupid for them to do it there anyways.

Animation was meh, voice acting was meh. Interesting concept but the way the plot was carried out felt too common.
Interestingly enough, the 7.92 ball was not enough. It did stick halfway in. So it is probably around 10mm worth of RHA in terms of tankiness. So I guess 7.92 AP for a 50cal is enough to go through a werewolf.

Noi a lot of werewolf anime so I wish there was more. But whatever, the whole MC transforming is a bit too common. The prisoner girl ending up being sympathized is also done a bit too much. The don't belong to other side is not that common but it is becoming rather popular recently.

Will watch if it comes out but I don't feel like it is going to be a masterpiece.
Interesting it gives us a good accurate year. During the Korean war guys!

Bleh.....super basic. Growing up with single ovas i nthe late 80s and throughout the 90s, I would have thought studios would not waste their precious time with stupid little ventures such as a one shot show anymore. It wasnt even a full hour ffs. ITs been done to death before, plot wise. 3/10

Considering it's length this was pretty good, I enjoyed the music during the final battle.
