Sounds interesting. Though with it just being an OVA I can't say that I will remember to watch it.

Might check out, but it's too short. I don't want to let it attracts my interest, then I have to wait for couple years to get a proper TV series. :(

It's and OVA so might as well watch it when it comes out.

Sounds Interesting, Might give it a try. Hopefully it will be a TV series soon.

Sounds interesting, too bad its not a full series. Maybe it'll turn into one if the OVA's successful enough?

Ha, kinda sounds like a plot from a VN more than from a LN. It also reminds me of Inganock, which might be why I think it sounds VN-ish. Anyway, it does sonud interesting, but I don't like watching OVAs so I'll probably ignore it. I hope it gets an actual anime some day.

I'll watch it if this is true, if it's not, I'd have to think about it.
