The Girl From the Other Side OVA is a 10-minute animated short based on the manga.
The first I noticed was the art. It’s very similar to the manga. I think this is very unique. Another thing is that the characters don’t talk. Instead, they convey everything through their actions.
We see an encounter between a human girl and a beast.
Whenever the beast touches a living thing, that thing is cursed. In these 10 minutes, we see that the little girl lives with the beast. The beast acts as her guardian. They live peacefully but the beast tries his best to avoid touching her, even though he wishes he could.
If you have 10 minutes to spare, I recommend watching this. It’s only 10 minutes. In fact, my only complaint is that it’s too short! I hope we will get an anime adaptation of the entire story.
Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii: Youth is the OVA for Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii. You would have to watch Wotakoi first in order for the OVA to make better sense but it could arguably stand alone on its own.
Synposis: Hanako Koyanagi tells Narumi and Hirotaka about her high school days and how she met Tarou Kabakura on the volleyball courts.
Thoughts: This was great because Koyanagi and Kabakura don’t get as much screen time in Wotakoi compared to Narumi and Hirotaka. If you enjoyed the Koyanagi x Kabakura pairing or want to learn more about their story, this OVA is for you. It was interesting to see what the characters were like in high school and how they became a couple. Koyanagi looked so adorable with her short hair cut! I think their love story is sweet.
While I’m waiting for Wotakoi season 2 and hoping to see progress in Nao and Kou’s relationship, this OVA was a sweet episode. I recommend this if you liked Wotakoi!
