The specials are pretty funny, albeit a little short. I think an OVA could be pretty entertaining.

A-Channel was pretty entertaining, it was a very relaxing SOL anime. I'm looking forward to this.

I'm not really into slice of life comedies without any real value whatsoever, but I have to admit that I really enjoyed A-Channel, thus I'm already festing up for this OVA.

I didn't like the series, but if the OVA's got nude fanservice, count me in!

I must be insane. Somehow it still surprises me that gimmicky shows like this can get so much attention, granted it's only an OVA but still, what can you really add to "A group of archetypical high school girls goof off." And likewise, why watch it in the first place when there are several other anime with the exact same plot, and characters.

I mean these are highschoolers right? Where's the worry about the inevitable? The hormone ridden angst over relationships and otherwise? It doesn't take a lot of work to make a good high school dramedy, but it does take work.

Highly doubt it. A Channel isn't that kind of show.


I do hope they at least have fanservice like the beach episode, though. You're right it won't go so far as to have nudity however

Because it's not the exact same. Similar archetypes and situations do not lead to identical interactions. I for one don't need anything radically different in each one of these shows - I just need something I enjoy watching. So what if that means yet another culture festival episode? It's something many people find enjoyable no matter how many times they see it, because each show puts its own small spin on things. When I watch Run and Tooru, I'm not watching Yui and Mugi, or Yuno and Miyako, or Akari and Kyouko. They're all different despite some similarities, and I appreciate and enjoy seeing familiar events through different eyes.

Damonashu said:

They have no place in a show like this. Nobody is watching A Channel for angst or drama. You don't like slice of life shows (and this is one that actually fits the definition, unlike so many other shows the phrase is applied to), fine. But you don't need to act so shocked that other people do. Or that we could like more than one "cute girls in school" show.
My apologies, at other times I would have realized the obvious argument to my statement, but at the moment I am ridiculously sleepy and am prone to rants both confusing and unfortunately antagonizing, both of which happen without outward intent. I must thank you too, when I was writing that, while I didn't realize the obvious argument I did expect comments of "rage less" and others to that like and it is refreshing to see that the first response to it wasn't like that.

Coolio, though the specials are already kind of like short OVAs.

Not that bad of a show. I enjoyed waking up in the mornings to watch it when it was airing.

It was very bland, but soothing. Tooru is amazing.

Oh, Tooru keeps me hooked to it.

I hope there's a second season, it was too short for me and the characters were growing on me..
