THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So, we got Jun Fukuyama, Tomokazu Sugita and Takahiro Sakurai voicing the 3 main characters.
It was an ok start to the 1st part of this OVA.
Ryuu-Rogue I think did a good job in subbing it.
The opening theme seems addictive enough for me. (xp)
I'm a little confused here...the database said..."Now a new, highly addictive drug called "Dragon Speed" has hit the streets"
Isn't it F.A. or Falling Angel or something like that?

Leave that aside, the suspense was built enough going to the 2nd part of the OVA (which is about Feb 09?)DAMN!
I just wonder there are so many developments..can the director actually fits everything into a 30 mins. OVA?...
4/5. Liked it.
They see me trollin', they hatin'.

Thrilling. *-* I definitely liked it. I hope that second part will be as good or better :3 Long wait eh... T_T
And <333 voice actors~

Well, that anime description was taken from manga description so I guess there are gonna be differences between that and OVA... ^^'
Need to make new sig. Soon. Maybe.

The summary is wrong, they are describing the plot of the first arc of the manga.

I gave it a 4.
I never read the manga, therefore I had nothing to base it on. haha
It was quite suspenseful. Though it seemed like there wasn't a whole lot going on. I kinda would like to see this with more than 2 episodes after this OVA.

Seconded it was enjoyable but not great. Gah I hope Kai doesn't die. @_@ Go Save him Hal if you are! :P By the way is there a hint of yaoi in here or is it just my imagination... >.>
HEY!

Watched this because a friend of mine likes the manga. The OVA was okay; didn't like it, didn't hate it. The characters have no appeal to me at all and that red headed kid kind of annoyed me, but since its only one more episode, I'll watch it just to see what happens.

It's been quite a long time in fact. Any updates on the subbed version of episode 2?

Wow this was so grabbing. And the ending theme's damn heavy. Opening's excellent too.
I liked the suspense. For a first episode, this was brilliant.

I can't believe there are only two though. That's sad because this has SO much potential.
Enjoyed .

That was very interesting. I just noticed the awesome casting for the main characters. xD

But yeah, I just kind of stared at the summary after watching it since it wasn't right. The show definitely had a DN vibe to it though.

OMG how can they stopped there!! This is great, nice VA selection, nice art, animation also not bad, the whole setting, the characters, the suspense, everything is awesome.. And what's the switch's key, I doubt they'll explain it in this 2 episodes OVA..

A first episode very interesting ! The 30 minutes quickly passed, and now, I've only one envy: see the second episode. ;)

Cool episode.
Was kinda thought it will be boring all because of Kal, but all of a sudden he is cool character because of his personality. Oh man, maybe he got trapped, or got stabbed by someone.
Oh man, the ost is very special. Makes the whole show suspenseful.
Man Hal is interesting. Looking underrated so far.
4/5

I knew it! Junichi Suwabe! :D Yes! Too bad he's only a side character here. Hnnnng Sakurai Takahiro. (as well as Jun)

Part time bishounen is really suspicious. Main shota is also pretty interesting as well as megane. Everyone is fishy. Nice suspense, even though the atmosphere and pacing was disjointed at times (a bit too happy times and not serious enough). 4/5 Onto the next episode!

LOL So it's not just me, eh? Whatever, I don't care how appealing this show is for Fujoshis. It's still watchable.

You took the words out of my mouth!!! I absolutely loved that episode and that OP is already stuck in my head!!! ♥///♥ Yeah, guess I will read the manga - out of curiosity and lack of more episodes!! XDDD

Hmm, not too bad so far. I like the setting, and the characters are pretty interesting. Although am I the only one who thought the red headed dude was a chick at first lol?

But yea, I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.

The beginning was rather weird and unnecessary long. A bad way to start a series, the rest wasn't that bad tho.
That red haired boy who looks like high schooler and is actually 22 y/o was disturbing. It's nothing new for anime to have characters older than they look like but compared to the rest of cast he was standing out too much.
I'm watching anime since 2012. I also play games, sometimes.

Don't bother me if you want to 'become friends' or things like that.
It's tiresome. I know you just want to collect some more meaningless numbers.
Current thought: If Anime+ could stop removing my profile, that'd be great.
