Well this was fun. I wasn't too impressed with the animation quality but the action and choreography impressed me.

Kat and Raven were really fun to watch in this special. Overall fun stuff. Not too long for this special but I think it captured the entertainment value of it.

This was fun but part A of the episode was pretty much pointless. The animation could of been better and i would of greatly preferred 2D animation but the action scenes were still fun

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

It captured the essence of the game incredibly well. It pulled off the 2.5D look well.

With Kat's gravity bending powers, it really gave the director an opportunity to give us some really unique camera shots. I don't think they took full advantage, but they still did a pretty good job with angles and shots overall.

Gravity Rush's music continues to be as lovely and lively as ever.

Seeing Kat, Syd, and Raven animated was a real treat. I really liked these characters in the game, so seeing them really come alive was terrific.

We got what we came for in this short, adventures with Kat and friends, as well as everyday life and some great action sequences.

Well done all around!

Yeah the animation style did fit the game really good. Though you probably will only enjoy this OVA episode when you played the first game.
Kat at the end in the red dress was very nice :3

I enjoyed it for what it was. A bit cheesy, but hey so was the game at points. The animation wasn't super amazing, but they had some pretty impressive backgrounds/foregrounds here and there. However, the constant eating was a bit annoying as it was just filler. Still looking forward to the second game as they previewed a minor bit of the plot behind it.

A mix between Japanese and French. A made up language.

Looks like Khara Studio use same technology they used in several Japan Animator Expo episodes, I like it but is not fully utilized properly this time.

The language hurts... it's like russianese with japancais accent... so broken, and where's the syntax? DX

Why was everything always upright? It feels wrong.

Music sounds almost like pokémon.

Not too huge of a fan of the CGI, but the action and progression in general was quite decent! The other thing while bothering somewhere did gave it a nice touch being the unique language they're all speaking.

All in all a nice bridge between the two games I'd say!

This is the longest they've ever spoke in this language, didnt like it in previous game, like it even less here, might like it in 2 due to the singing but who knows.

The story is well... I know its meant to explain the gap between the 2 games but I think the story is almost as non existent as the first game.

The one good thing? The action. It was fantastic, especially the diebuster vibes and the double izanami kick. It put a smile on my face.

Defo hyped up for the game.

I see what you did there, studio Khara ;)

Poor Kat, not only she gets skewered screwed over in the demo but in this special as well smh.

Well this was pretty neat, decent fights and animation, I especially liked the interaction between Kat and Raven (damn those girls can eat!), my only gripe would probably be the made up language. It didn't really bother me in the game but after hearing it to a greater extent thanks to this special, it's quite jarring to listen to tbh.
I remember reading a comment somewhere that said that Raven sounds like an angry russian woman, and unforunatly I have to agree xD

Anyways, I can't wait to have the full game in my hands in just two weeks :D

Pretty cool that they speak different languages.

The episode makes me want to play the game now; it looks fun.

I had no idea that this "OVA" was done by the same studio that did the "Rebuild of Evangelion" films. Huh, whoda thunk it?

Anyway, I really enjoyed my experience of the first Gravity Rush game on the PS Vita and I'm so looking forward to playing GR2 on the PS4. I really enjoyed watching Gravity Daze: The Animation - Overture the same way I also enjoyed watching the animated prologue to Star Fox Zero on the Wii U from Wit Studio.

I'm fully aware that there will be a free DLC for Gravity Rush 2 coming in March, ASAP. I'm not going into details about that and besides, I can wait.
No hurry or anything. I will save my money until I have enough to buy this game and perhaps, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered and Yakuza 0. So many games to buy and play and so little time.

also is this georgian used in that anime (at least for the written texts)?
