THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
BOOBIES, FUCK YEAH!

Anyways, Arata was amazing with that awkward kiss but Eba and himself make a cute couple. A perfect end to the OVA for a great manga.
How the fuck do you forget your phone but remember to treat your friends though...

OMG, those kisses on the bridge. :D I really hope this gets a full series. Could be one of the best romances in awhile.

It's almost painful to see how much these OVAs suck, the art style alone is an offence but I will say this one was better than the other one.

Seriously, look at the Sankarea OVA, that's how you make a good one.

DAT BREASTS!!! 8D
I used to believe the brain was the most important organ in the body.
Then I realized - - Look what's telling me that.

I really don't see anything wrong with art. Unless the Sankarea ppl made these, these OVAs will be made drawn differently.

Please explain as to why you think the art is bad.

Clearly tailored towards those who have read the manga; it appears to be clearly rushed for those who have not. Nevertheless, it was still enjoyable, it just could have done much better though.

3 Things
1. Comments about boobs are lame, if boobs are what make you remember an anime go watch hentai
2. This is not for manga readers at all because its inaccurate for the manga readers and instead spites them. INFO ABOUT THIS IN ( ) [CONTAINS SPOILERS]
(The random scenes of the past are ok-ish in showing scenes of Haruto and Eba, but display nothing of how their relationship actually became one, since ppl who haven't read the manga just know Haruto randomly liked Nanami and switched to liking Eba. But this isn't the point. IF YOU READ THE MANGA, you learn right after this scene that when Haruto gets back to his home in the country... BOOM BREAK-UP out of nowhere. The gift Eba gave him had a shirt, and in that shirt was a message saying they should break up and YES Eba did split up with Haruto to be with another dude. That trash I had to see at the end when Eba and Haruto texted each other saying this was the beginning of a transcendent long-distance relationship was all a LIE.)
3. Comments on the artwork are lame, sure I will agree that both are very weak at illustrating the manga artwork, but it doesn't ruin the show. What ruins the show was the story I had to see.
First episode: 8/10 (didn't read the manga, so I Thought the whole situation that happened was a pretty epic love story i knew little about and thus didn't see manga artwork so I was unbiased towards anime artwork)
2nd episode: 6/10 (Having read the manga up to the weekly chapters, I feel like everything I was watching was fake and it just made me cringe)

First few seconds, Suzuka. I knew was going to like this. And then boobies. I knew this will go better than the last episode.
But then QUALITY. And the dialect is a bit hard on the ears, especially Akari's and Takashi's. Rin's voice really doesn't fit even if it's Aoi Yuuki.
And WTF is that ending? It makes it look like it's going to a happy direction when they're suppose to break up afterwards. Seriously, wtf.
They had a good story to animate(the beginning parts only though). Shame it got wasted on QUALITY art and animation and being rushed as hell. Not to mention the character design looks nothing like Seo's work. Just...ugh.
At least the music was good. And Eba and Haruto's acting was at least good. So yeah.

I read the manga so it doesn't really bother me, but you should learn to use spoiler tags; there are plenty of people who have watched the OVA yet not read the manga.

Hoping to see an anime series adaptation. The entire episode was full of love. Much better than the first episode!

The OVA gets an admirable 8/10 just for the kiss scene alone!

I like breasts and will point that out when seeing a nice pair. You don't, but whatever floats your boat

Also before you start chastising people how about you learn to put things properly in spoiler tags like I did. Even though the manga shouldn't be discussed in here anyways...

Which is exactly my problem and don't even start with the story.

@gamerguy:
So what, I could say that your comment is lame and of course it's intended for manga readers because this OVA was bundled with one of the volumes in a limited edition.

This was an alright 2nd OVA. The voice-acting wasn't that great though and the art looks nothing like the manga style. The bathroom/spa scene, shouting fan service lmao. Seeing Rin was nice. Her personality was portrayed nicely. Eba and Haruto scenes were awesome though, so lovely. Although some parts seemed awkward. That kiss was nice. The animation and voice-acting really brought it down for me.

Giving this episode a 3/5 and the series overall a 6/10
I would seriously love to see KNIM as an actual series with a higher budget. That way I can see Asuka animated. I loved that 'arc' as well <3

really, really, really loved this ova - one of the best romantic anime i've ever watched - great animation, great seiyuu, great story, and best of all (for a romance), tons of emotion...really hope this will get made into a more long running series, and i definitely plan on reading the manga - 8 out of 10!

haagen dazs green tea ice cream is the best! :)

I don't think I'll watch it if there will be a tv series because all the characters annoy me (except the main couple because I love their seiyuu),the fanservice pissed me off and I heard the manga is melodrama.

But the kiss was really sweet.

Seriously, F*#$ this OVA. They ruined quite possibly the most important part of the manga.

People are complaining that the anime drastically changed the art from the manga, but the art isn't really that different. Everyone says that Eba especially is off because she looks so plain and cartoony, but anime-Eba only looks that way compared to the early chapters of the manga. If you actually compare the appearances of Eba from her very first appearance to the more recent chapters, the anime quite closely resembles the more recent chapters. There are elements of both periods in the manga present in the anime appearance, most specifically the anime-Eba's face is more like recent chapters, but hair is slightly disheveled, kind of like a mix between the early and most recent chapters. SO... the art is not offensive.

Not even close. The manga does a 180 on the direction the anime was heading at the end.

Finding out by spoiler how the OVA changed the ending makes me less likely to want a full series or read the manga. I understand the attraction that bitter-sweet endings seem to hold--after all we probably see more of those in our lives than happily-ever-after ones. But why relive sad memories of my own failed long-distance relationships? (and yes, I realize the irony of saying this while having an avatar from a series which has a great deal of sadness wrapped in the ending.)
Please don't feed the trolls!

Well, as a person who did not read the manga, I pretty much deducted everything that happened prior to the OVa's, they were great, if you are familliar to the genre you will understand where this is going.What I didn't know is that shit takes a hard turn after the train scene thingy, and honestly Bitches(can't call them girls..sorry ladies!) like this deserve a good pimp hand slap.

Nope, didn't like it. It's a jumbled mess with fanservice.

Also, if you don't read the manga. You will never have a clue what happened between Nanami and Haruto that led to Haruto and Eba going out and how big of an issue it is when Nanami asked Haruto to act as her boyfriend.

It's an 2 episode OVA so I can't blame them for this.

I think the only thing holding this back was budget issues; but what can you expect from DVDs being released with the Manga?

They cannot pass up the opportunity to make this into a new series. It's got such a new/fresh vibe. Imagine a serialized 5cm per second and you have this.

Just use the same director and the same music + better art and I can tell you, you'll have the romance masterpiece we've all been waiting for :)
No.

The hug was so cute!

I didn't like Haruto's voice to be honest, it feels so rude that even when he speaks normally it feels like he's screaming... I did like the childish voice, though.
Animate such a long manga in 2 episodes is really difficult, must say it was really fast paced and even though I did read a few chapters from the manga, I felt lost a lot of times. Imagine who didn't even read it.

7/10

Maybe this would have been enjoyable if I was a 16 year old girl, but most of these romantic lines and general behavior was so cliche and melodramatic that it was honestly cringeworthy. Maybe I'll try the manga in the future to see if it's any better.

Haruto's voice really stood out to me as it sounded so gruff but earnest at the same time. I liked his character in general because it showed that he cares a lot about his girlfriend and tries his best to clear up the misunderstanding. However, especially since the story is told from his point of view everyone else fell a bit flat for me unfortunately.

OVA was pretty good. Glad I haven't read the manga or I'd probably be pretty annoyed.

Not sure why they bothered with the random bath fan service though. This didn't seem like the type of anime to need it.
