Why was this made? I mean, apart from completely raping the Kurenai TV-Series, perhaps? If I were someone who reads manga, this would totally take away any motivation I would have had to buy and check out the manga. Please, someone. Tell me that the manga is more than just this endless string of silly and pointless side-stories!
The past two episodes have just been strings of random stories, without everything tying them together aside from a bunch of badly written characters. In the first segment there is this violent blond girl who is really depressed and somehow ends up making friends with Murasaki and hugs Shinkuro out of nowhere. The second segment sees all of the main females discovering a porn stash of the tenant that lived in Shinkuro’s apartment before he started living there, and the third was just a bunch of girls randomly talking about Shinkuro.
The worst thing about these OVAs is the terrible acting, though. What once was a mature series has now been reduced to a silly harem with stock characters who can only think about silly romantic misunderstandings. Murasaki ends up climbing a tree in order to search for Shinkurou at school, everyone obsesses endlessly over that porn stash of Shinkurou; it’s all just pointless.
And the weird thing is that Kou Matsuou is still responsible for this OVA. Why didn’t he give it the same treatment as he gave the Kurenai TV-series? He could have could have made some great filler like with the musical episode. Heck, he could even have created the start of an interesting story, that doesn’t fit into two episodes. EVERYTHING but this.
OVA Episode Rating: 5/10
