An interesting OVA ! It was great that we could gain some information of Theo & Senda, especially the second one who had a very minor role despite his status.

And I found really surprising that he's unable to see the Anothers but has a catalyst ability : no doubt he almost did not take part of any intervention during the main serie.

Rather than an independent OVA, this episode is actually the 13th of the TV series with much the same feel to it.

It tells the story of how and Reiji & Theo first met.

Main guy getting lost after buying something for Miyu-Miyu's character, and meeting a fox family who knows his ancestor. Their goal was the snack.

I thought so, though the synopsis is not up on the official site yet for some reason (been waiting it would be up before the release like what they did w. eps.14 and 15).

After the mainline TV series and the 2 OVAs, this episode 13 finally wraps up this series with that same joyful but ominous feeling.

The meeting of youngsters Theo and the less-prominent Senda, and the occurrence of Anothers. Theo could see them, but I didn't think that Senda would be so much as a magnet to these spirits. It runs in the family though.

Impressive that they stayed this way, all the way to even with the Anothers investigation team.

And that's a wrap for the series overall!

Senda doesn't get much spotlight in the main series so it is nice to see a story with him as main

That was some fine backstory. I thought they would reveal for a sec there, that Theo is a fox spirit or a former one. But, I still think it was a good episode. I was surprised Theo was half British, I always thought he was fully Japanese with that hair style and dark color.

Onto the episode, that kodoku seemed dangerous, I wouldn't have touched it at all after hearing how lethal it was. I would've stayed in that loop, rather than die. I wish the fox gave some form of great farewell at the end, like saving Sends there, it would've been a great development for it and a bit memorable.

Overall it was nice, and hope for a season 2. I sensed some vibes between Theo and Senda, maybe that's why they don't have girlfriends or married ;-)

Despite various supernatural creature, I think the core of Mayonaka is servicing same-sex couple, may not be as obvious as Yokai apartment, but this episode is definitely shipping them.
