They should either animate everything, or nothing.


The wise duck tests the waters before it takes on the sharks. - Dunois 2013 :D

Also, if everything is getting animated it wouldn't be an OVA any longer.

It is "plain stupid" when you failed to think about money and cost.

Yeah, if it costs nothing in terms of any resource from staff to money to time to rent and every operating expense, why not animate everything, but do you think we are living in such a happy world? And please tell me why animating nothing is better given the fact that you are not paying for it anyway (if you have been buying the manga, then pardon me).

Making one OVA is clearly much cheaper than making 12-13 episodes for a season. Besides this bundling clearly benefits the sales of the manga. If you think about the business not just your own preference it should not be hard to understand.


The business side of anime strikes again.

My thoughts exactly.

And I believe it's Lugh. At least that's how scanlators translate the name.


Yeah pretty sure you're right. Made the change, thanks.

Wait what? They're jumping to those fights?
What happened to DDD tournament? Kenichi vs Boris? vs Tirawit? vs Ethan? And a ton of other arcs and fights?
At least they could have animated Shigure's backstory since they animated Appachai's. The previous OVAs were still animating the chapters that directly follow the TV series and then a big jump to these. Just...wow.

Second season is pretty much impossible now huh. At least we're still getting these OVAs I guess. It should be next to impossible to see these fights even get animated as these are in the 490+ chapter range.

And I believe it's Lugh. At least that's how scanlators translate the name.

Seems to be growing more and more evident.


It's unfortunate because these OVAs tend to be hit-or-miss, and are always rushed.
