The art style and voices remind me of K-On.. which doesn't fit the tone of the story at all. The girls aren't supposed to look cute.

Animation is better, but that's probably necessary for the story.

Should it be sad now that twice in a season I've been glad that subs scrolls by to quickly for me to process?

THE ANIMATION STYLE---, SO FREAKING UGLY!!!

I LIKE THE PREVIOUS STYLE BETTER!!! D<

THIS IS NOT K-ON!

Not just that, the OP song is really sucks. The first one is better, no matter how you look at it!
This.

And I have to say, very disappointed for the first episode.

It's been awhile since I've watched anything from this franchise.

Lol, the beginning was kinda funny. Wake up call! Dunno why but one of the girls reminds me of Yui from K-On! The nurse is a fucking boss though out arm wrestling two girls ;o

Okay, it seems that there some hints of romance in this OVA. Akina..that lucky bastard.

Lol @ the bear mask. Seriously, why is she wearing that shit?

The action is pretty good imo. That nun is a boss with the weapon she swings her weapon. Those burglars picked the wrong fucking fight this time around. Pretty tense episode.

The movement is pretty well done but the designs look too marshmallowy

Aside from Yae though this episode was rather boring

I prefer Hime's more serious yet still playful personality from the first series

The animation is similar to the Hana no Uta series.

Fabulous! Started before Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta stopping to the episode 8, then started finendoli these OAD. Then continue with the rest of the series 2013!
So ... graphics always great, never a drop in the graphics compared to the TV series that shares the same character design.
Intense plot, narrative enjoyable and eventful, so it should be an anime! * _ *
Excellent animations, Yae-san and fabulous! : D
This beautiful first OAD, deserves full marks!

That scene with Juli, Hime, and Touka just made this episode completely worth it for me. Hime's reaction to Juli's question about her affection for Akina just confirmed everything I wanted to be a thing. Or rather, it rose my hopes drastically!

Akina x Hime <3

While the characters do look the same they do feel totally different like they're more cute and look younger in general! The overall atmosphere also changed from a rather dark depressive one to a more happy and bright one! I do like the change but well I do wonder what the other two episodes have to offer!

The change in art style is a bit jarring. I really was used to the old one. I'm fine with it. I actually like it a bit. I'm sure I'll get use to it. It got moe-fied if that makes sense.

Yae seems to really like teddy bears. That scene when she was patroling at night with that bear mask was pretty funny. It feels like her personality changed from the original series. She was more serious but here she's a lot more playful. I like this version better.

Interesting first episode. I like where this is going. Youkai Hunters huh? This can be a interesting enemy.

Yuuhi talks about Enjin getting ready. So does that mean this happens before the events of the original anime? Then again wasn't the first Yozakura Quartet anime original and not following the manga? I think it was original. In this version it looks like Hime likes Akina which was really hinted or shown in the first Yozakura Quartet anime.

I really like this version better. Let's see where this goes!

The plot is actually better than main series but I feel comfortable with character art especially Akina, ughh :L
But Ao got twice the cuteness. Juli, Touka, Kotoha, Kyousuke, Hime is better in Nomad art.

Here comes the bad ass action by Yae. I havent seen it in a while.

4.4/5

-That was a pretty stylish team picture at the end of the OP
-Come to think of it since when has Akina been calling her Rinnoji
-Touka's one lewd motherfucker, talking about holding hands and shit

Coming here from episode 8 of Hana no Uta, almost nothing happened this episode aside from the Rin scenes at the beginning and end. They did end up explaining the consequences of Akina's tuning powers, though, and Rin was pretty adorable in the beginning, so I guess it wasn't a total waste.
