I already saw it coming when the train was leaving. So obvious Eba was going to be on the other side. I just hope the next episode won't have a ton of drama revolving around the misunderstanding and that they manage to clear it out in the first couple of minutes. (Except that isn't going to happen and I'll probably be disappointed/annoyed at the anime).

Pretty good episode. Much better than 5 nanometers per second.

Well, so far my feelings are a bit mixed for this OVA. It seems to start out of nowhere (idk what chapter from the manga as I've not read it yet) with the characters already in a relationship (long-distance).

The music and art is nice I admit but the story is bleh. I'm hoping this will officially turn into a real anime series soon.

I don't know what to think, I was pretty bored to be honest.
I hope next episode will be better.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

a season adaptation would be very interesting but this format really takes a lot off from the story
huh?

after reading so much of the manga, it's ingrained in my head that haruto is blonde and eba has pink hair. OVA is really throwing me off with the brown and dark blue hair.

I love the soundtrack of this OVA as well as the ending song! Being someone who has read the manga i can still remember the events that have happened. Still think this is great!

Agreed. As someone who's been reading the manga from the start, I really liked this OVA. Somehow, it was able to pack all the intricacies of the initial relationship between Yuzuki and Haruto (and Nanami) into a condensed 40 minute affair. I not picky about the little details, the OVA was great as an OVA. If nothing else, this definitely sparks interest in the manga. The flow of the plot was fragmented and yet fitting. I also liked the juxtaposition of what really happened between Nanami and Haruto and what they were saying on their boyfriend girlfriend charade. I would really like to watch a series developed by the same story writer with Seo sensei.

Also, loved the many Suzuka references and cameo.

Talk about the wrong guy in the wrong place! Quite an awesome love story actually, the ending was quite breath taking as well. Can't wait to see what they'll do in the second part!

Damn, you can NEVER get away with pretending to be someone else's boyfriend. It always backfires in every anime. I saw that coming too.

Good OVA though, nice prep for the anime coming out this season.

Well, this was kind of disappointing. It glosses over to much of the early material and feels disjointed. If I hadn't just read the manga, I probably wouldn't have been able to follow it very well. I'll have to go back and read others comments to see how it fared with the non-reader population... no time now.

Still, despite its flaws, it was nice... Can't wait for the full series in a little over a week.

I thought that this would help me ease my way into the series but I guess not.

I mean I got the gist of this but i'm not a big fan of love triangle/romance/drama situations in anime.

Maybe I would have considered reading the manga but these characters are as unappealing as they come, so no thanks.

Now i'm just going to finish the second OVA out of obligation.

I liked it a lot. The characters are somewhat average, plot isn't the best, but atmosphere, setting, OST, animation, directing and set up at flawless, at least for me. Also this is the perfect amount of romance for me.

Onto the next one!

Pretty good episode.
I have to wonder why some people hate the ova so much? It looks good so far.
Wow, the ending I was shocked even though I don't know some of the characters yet.
Not sure if I like Eba or the other girl. If I was him, he could of not go and go like Eba instead.
4/5

Woah, I haven't read the manga and even glanced at the TV series yet but this was kinda interesting. The trains, snow and long distance relationship reminds me of 5 Centimeters Per Second.

Anyway all the lies, half-truths, the anxiety, and tension with their circumstances make a really good drama.
Nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted.

I decided to watch this OVA first before I watch the TV series.

Well, it was alright and the art is not that bad.

The ending song is nice too :D

If I was him, I will cross that train rail and tell her what really happened!!!!

Great episode! I really enjoyed it. I watching this before wathcing the tv anime series. Lota of stuff happened and there was a really hilariosu scene at the restaurant. "Of course we're going out! We've had sex, too!" *akward scilence* That made me laugh! Damn what an ending. Talk about a misunderstanding. I think I'm going to enjoy this series. Also I really like tha ED.

Alright, I have decided to watch all episodes of this anime, meaning,

the first two OVA, the 12 episode anime, and the last two OVA.

Just saw this OVA.

Love it. That scene where the female MC was running to go see the male MC was awesome. Specially with that background music.

And then that ending. drama, drama, drama. Love it.

I will say that the male MC is alright. He is not great, but I dont hate him either. I dont mind seeing the anime from his point of view.

Onto OVA 2

:)

So basically playing long distance relationship yet gets cut by the false love date at the train station, oh the drama! Lots of back and forth contradictions while describing the lie at the restaurant. Had to rewatch the lies to understand what was going on tbh.

I think they redesigned the characters to appeal to a broader audience. Akari looks so....off.


Well that sucks big time...

No contradictions... It's you who's dumber than a rock and didn't realize it's completely dependent on the manga story. If you know naught about it, then it's completely normal you'd get confused. They were not describing any lie, just past moments, hence the tension between them.

lul why so serious, have you considered there's anime only viewers here also? You don't even have this on your list on either anime or manga so what's your opinion worth? Nice necro.
