NAKAIMO – My Little Sister Is Among Them! OVA

NAKAIMO – My Little Sister Is Among Them! OVA

Brother, Sister, Lover

The NAKAIMO – My Little Sister Is Among Them! OVA (Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!: Ani, Imouto, Koibito / この中に1人、妹がいる!兄、妹、恋人) is the unaired 13th episode of the anime series. The title of the episode is Brother, Sister, Lover. And, somehow, it’s actually worse than the main series.

When I originally watched NAKAIMO, the fact that it was uncensored surprised me. I wasn’t expecting a series like this to have an uncensored version. But, since it did, I assumed that the OVA would take the ecchi content further than the series. That’s not the case.

The NAKAIMO OVA has no uncensored ecchi. It doesn’t have that much ecchi at all. And the ecchi it does have is relatively tame. This is why the OVA is worse than the main series. NAKAIMO is very boring without the ecchi component. That’s the only thing the series had going for it.

Complaints aside, what’s the OVA episode about? Well, the first thing to re-establish is that we know Miyabi is Shougo’s younger half-sister. So, even though this is a siscon anime, that takes Miyabi out of the running to be Shougo’s romantic partner.

But, Miyabi isn’t willing to be cast aside so easily. She decides that none of the other girls can date Shougo without her permission. And so, the girls come up with a competition. They’ll each plan out and go on a date with Shougo — and Miyabi will judge these dates. Whichever girl has the best date wins Shougo (in theory).

So, who are the competitors? In order of their dates, they are Mana, Mei, Ikusu, Rinka, and Konoe. It was pretty surprising to see both Mana and Ikusu on the list but not Yuzurina. During the series, Yuzurina felt more like a real option.

Date Competition

Let’s go over each of the five dates in order, starting with Mana Tendou’s. Mana doesn’t seem to know what a date is. Her idea of a date is buying a bunch of snacks from convenience stores and then eating pancakes. But, she did have the best ecchi scene.

Mei Sagara’s date didn’t fare much better. Her idea of a date is to visit various cafés, including her own. She also had a decent ecchi scene. But, it could have been better. The highlight of her date was definitely the Wife Café. If there was one near me, I’d frequent it.

Ikusu Mizutani’s date was the most standard of all the dates. But, that’s not a bad thing. She and Shougo did all the typical date things, and I’d say it was probably the best date of them all. However, I’m not the judge.

Rinka Kunitachi decided to skip the date portion of her date altogether. Her “date” involved introducing Shougo to her parents and receiving their consent. Look, it’s not much of a date, but I do like Rinka. She gets straight to the point. Why date when you could consummate a marriage?

Finally, it’s Konoe Tsuruma’s turn. Her date has 2 phases. The first phase involves everyone going to an amusement park together. And there’s a focus on Konoe, Shougo, and Miyabi as a group. Don’t get me wrong, going to an amusement park with friends is fun. But, it’s not exactly a date when it’s with a group.

The second phase of her date takes everyone to a wedding hall where a bridal fair is being held. At the bridal fair, the girls can try on dresses and have their pictures taken with Shougo. Again, more of a group activity.

And the Winner Is…

Who do you think the winner is after all the dates? The answer has actually been obvious from the very start of the episode — and even the series. If you guessed Miyabi, you’d be incorrect. The winner isn’t explicitly stated.

But, the implied winner is Konoe.

So, how is it implied that Konoe is the winner? Well, for starters, let’s go back to the first episode of the series. Who’s the first of the girls we meet? It’s Konoe. Konoe may not have been Shougo’s sister in the end, but she’s always been his romantic interest.

Okay, what other evidence is there? How about the title of this episode, Brother, Sister, Lover? Shougo is the brother, Miyabi is the sister, and someone else is the lover. This doesn’t tell us who the lover is exactly. But, it does imply that the lover and the sister are different.

The last piece of evidence ties in with the title and is also the most conclusive. Look at the dates the girls planned out. Mana, Mei, Ikusu, and Rinka all planned dates that focused on themselves and Shougo. Konoe’s date was different.

Not only did Konoe’s date involve everyone, but it focused on Konoe, Shougo, and Miyabi as a trio. Konoe was the only one who included Miyabi in her relationship with Shougo. With that context in mind, Konoe is the obvious answer to the question of who the lover from the episode title is.

Konoe understands what Miyabi wants. Miyabi wants her friendship with the other girls to continue as it always has been. And, she doesn’t want whoever marries her brother to steal him away from her. Miyabi doesn’t want to lose Shougo as a member of her family.

Conclusion

So, earlier in this review, I mentioned that the NAKAIMO OVA is worse than the series. That’s true. In the end, I gave the OVA a 3/10, which is 1 point lower than I gave to the series. If it actually delivered on the ecchi, it could have been better.

Shoujo Ramune

OVA Overview

Shoujo Ramune (小女ラムネ) is a 4-episode slice of life anime OVA that released episodes between October 2016 and March 2018. The episodes average out to be 19 minutes each. But since they don’t have OPs, that evens out to about the same amount of content as your standard anime episode.

If you’re not already familiar with Shoujo Ramune, you might be familiar with a similar series, Non Non Biyori. Just like Non Non Biyori, Shoujo Ramune follows the daily lives of some elementary or middle school girls who live in middle-of-nowhere, Japan.

However, as an OVA, Shoujo Ramune is much smaller in scope. Maybe 90% of the OVA takes place at a small candy shop on a lonely stretch of road in the mountains. Basically, just imagine the candy shop from Non Non Biyori, but with a middle-aged man running it instead of a 20-something-year-old girl.

When you consider that this candy shop doesn’t seem to get any business besides the three main girls of the series, it’s hard to believe that it’s successful enough to stay open. And, it’s not even like these girls are big spenders. In the first episode, two of them share a single popsicle.

Anyway, the girls have a special relationship with the owner of the candy shop. Besides each other, he’s basically their only friend. They spend their free time hanging out around his shop and asking him for advice on anything from relationships to making it big as an idol.

In some senses, Shoujo Ramune is also like Mitsuboshi Colors. Both have 3 young girls and both have an older man who runs a store and entertains the girls. But the setting is completely different and Shoujo Ramune isn’t a comedy.

Characters

There are only five characters in Shoujo Ramune. So, let’s start this section by going over the main girls. They are Komako Semenovich, Chie Sayama, and Tenka Adachi. Of these three, Komako is easily my favorite both in terms of her character design and personality.

Komako has pale skin, white hair that’s put up into twin tails with pink ribbons, and blue eyes. She also wears a white dress. Her personality is very subdued and she speaks in a matter-of-fact way. And because she’s a bit shy, she has the shop owner give her advice on how to be noticed by her crush.

Komako, Chie, and Tenka

Chie wears a blue tank top and a yellow skirt. Her skin tone is on the tanner side and she has visible tan lines. She also has brown hair and brown eyes. Chie’s the most plain of the three personality-wise, but there’s still plenty of good Chie content.

Tenka has the most outgoing personality of the three. And this makes sense considering her dream is to become a popular idol. She has the candy shop owner help her develop an online presence to gain fans. As for her appearance, she has black hair and brown eyes and wears a purple shirt with a green tank top under it paired with purple shorts.

Kiyoshi Tachikawa is the candy shop owner. It’s unclear exactly how old he is, but I’m going to guess that he’s in his 40s because his hair seems to be going a bit grey. Apparently, he opened the candy shop after deciding he wanted to get away from city life.

The final character is Yuuko Sayama, Chie’s mother. Of the five characters, she’s the only one I’d call a supporting character. She also begins dating Kiyoshi partway through the OVA.

From Dreams to Reality

This is the part of the review that goes into spoiler territory. You see, each of the three girls has a dream that they want Kiyoshi to help them achieve. Komako wants her crush to reciprocate her feelings, Chie wants a father, and Tenka wants to become the greatest idol.

By the end of the 4 episodes, each of these girls had made major steps toward their dreams — with the help of Kiyoshi, of course. So, let’s start with Chie’s dream because it’s the one that Kiyoshi has the most direct impact on.

Early on, Chie mentions how she wishes Kiyoshi was her dad because she likes him. And as I mentioned, Kiyoshi does end up dating Chie’s mom later on. Once they start dating, he even tells Chie that she can call him her dad now, but she says that she’s going to keep calling him “old man” because that’s what she’s used to.

Technically, by the end of the OVA, Kiyoshi isn’t Chie’s stepdad. So her dream wasn’t completely achieved. But, the same isn’t true for Komako. Her dream of having her crush reciprocate her feelings came true thanks to Kiyoshi’s advice. She got to spend one-on-one time with her crush during the summer festival.

Lastly, there’s Tenka’s dream of becoming an idol. While Kiyoshi did attempt to help Tenka grow an online audience, that’s not really how he helped her with her dream. Instead, he helped by giving her the confidence she needed to be able to get up on stage and perform in front of people.

Also, while Tenka doesn’t become a successful idol by the end of the OVA, she does make her debut in a small competition. And, of course, Chie, Komako, Kiyoshi, and Yuuko show up to support her.

Conclusion

Shoujo Ramune is a 7/10 from me. All three of the main girls are good, which is the thing that matters the most in an anime like this. There’s a lot of great content involving them, especially during the portions of the episodes that focus on each girl individually.

I also want to finish off this review with a fun fact that I learned while writing this. As you may know, ramune (ラムネ) from the title is a kind of lemon-flavored soda in Japan. Well, what I never put together is that ramune comes from the English word “lemonade.” The more you know.

Attack on Titan: No Regrets

Attack on Titan: No Regrets

Thugs in the Underground City

Since there’s a one-week break before the final episode of Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2, I figured I’d review the No Regrets (Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku / 進撃の巨人 悔いなき選択) OVA to fill the gap. This OVA consists of two episodes and tells the story of how Levi Ackerman came to join the Scouts.

Now, you might be thinking that we already got episodes of Levi’s backstory in the main series. And you’d be correct in thinking that. But the backstory we got for Levi in the main series focused more on his childhood. This OVA takes place much later.

At this point, Levi is the leader of a gang that’s located in the underground city beneath the capital.

It’s unclear exactly what the structure of Levi’s gang is. We see a decent amount of members. But, it appears that most of these members are more like contractors who are brought on to complete specific jobs. The only full-time member at the start seems to be Farlan Church.

Isabel Magnolia also joins the gang as a permanent member at the start of the first episode. From then on, Levi, Farlan, and Isabel are the core members of the gang. I think only one other member was named.

Also, before I move on to the next section of the review, I’d like to point out that the underground city could actually be a nice place to live. Obviously, it’s not. But at least if you’re down there you’re safe from the titans. With the exception of the one hole up to the surface we see, there’s no way for titans to enter.

Freedom on the Surface

Levi, Farlan, and Isabel make their way to the surface after they’re recruited into the Scouts by Erwin. However, they’re actually on a mission to infiltrate the scouts, steal a document from Erwin, and then assassinate him. This mission was given to them by a member of the government.

I have some problems with this whole situation. There are two things that the government official offers in exchange for their help. First, he said he’d pay for their comrade’s treatment in a hospital in the capital. And second, he promised them citizenship on the surface.

The first problem is that once these three join the scouts and are taken to the surface, they never mention their injured comrade again. It’s as if they completely forgot about him. And, sure, maybe they talk about him off-screen. But as far as the viewer is concerned, he no longer exists.

Farlan Church seeing beyond the walls for the first time

Why is that a problem? Well, it’s because of the second problem which is that Levi, Farlan, and Isabel already have citizenship on the surface. Simply by joining the Scouts, they now live on the surface. So if they live on the surface and they’re no longer concerned about their injured friend, why are they still carrying out their mission?

It seems like they’re so blinded by the mission that they were given that they don’t realize they already have everything they wanted. And do they really think the government official would grant them the citizenship they were promised?

To me, this seems like the perfect setup for Levi, Farlan, and Isabel to become scapegoats. If Erwin was actually killed and there was any suspicion surrounding his death, you know that official would throw those three under the bus to save himself. They’re thugs from the underground. They’re the perfect scapegoats.

RIP Farlan and Isabel

Once they made it to the surface as members of the Scouts, I knew Farlan and Isabel were going to be killed by a titan. Since we never saw them in the main series, it was clear that they either died or went back to the underground city. And I think we can all agree the latter was unlikely to happen.

In the end, they were killed by an abnormal titan, along with many other members of their platoon. Their deaths were also some of the most explicit in the entire series. That may be because this is an OVA, so it can get away with more than the TV anime can.

Their deaths also came very late in the OVA. There were only a few minutes left of the second episode when it happened. And I think that hurt the narrative a bit because it meant the ending was a bit too open-ended.

I enjoy open endings a lot of the time. But the issue here is that the ending of this OVA has to connect to what we know happens in the main series. That connection was left up in the air. It ends with Erwin telling Levi not to regret his decisions and to stay on as a member of the Scouts.

We know Levi did end up staying a member of the Scouts. However, we got nothing in terms of explaining why he made this decision. Levi says that Erwin is looking at something Levi himself can’t see (the future, the bigger picture). But that shouldn’t mean Levi suddenly wants to follow Erwin now that his friends are dead.

It just seems like there’s a huge disconnect between what we see happen at the end of the OVA and what we know happens later in the series.

Conclusion

Have you watched the Attack on Titan: No Regrets OVA? If so, what did you think of it? Despite my complaints, I still enjoyed it enough to give it a 7/10. It had great action and I liked seeing Erwin again.

The World God Only Knows: Four Girls and an Idol

The World God Only Knows: Four Girls and an Idol

Four Girls…

Since Crunchyroll never has OVAs, which is where I would normally watch The World God Only Knows, I had to resort to 9anime instead. But, for some reason, the Four Girls and an Idol OVA was only available in 480p and 3:2 aspect ratio instead of the 1080p and 16:9 of the main series.

Overall, the quality I watched the episode in didn’t really matter since this is just an OVA. I wouldn’t want to watch the main series like that. But for this one episode, I can deal with it. I just hope the Tenri Arc is available in better quality.

Anyway, this OVA is about Miyako, Ayumi, Chihiro, and Elsie forming a band. Sounds like a skippable episode, right? It probably is. But, I have seen that their band comes up in the third season of the series (Goddesses), so I figured I’d watch and review it.

Miyako, Ayumi, Chihiro, and Elsie from The World God Only Knows: Four Girls and an Idol anime OVA
Miyako, Ayumi, Chihiro, and Elsie

Those four girls I mentioned are the titular “four girls.” Who could have guessed? By this point, you should know who Elsie is. She’s a demon tasked with capturing lost souls and she formed a contract with Keima to help her in this goal.

Chihiro is a girl Keima conquered in the second season of the series. You may remember her as the girl without much of a personality whom Keima called a background character. And speaking of background characters, that’s basically what Miyako is — she’s not important.

Ayumi is another girl Keima conquered, but I didn’t really remember her. Apparently, Ayumi was the very first girl conquered by Keima in the series. Maybe you remember her as the star of the track team — I didn’t until I looked back at the episodes of the first season.

…and an Idol

The titular idol of the episode is none other than the only idol in the series, Kanon Nakagawa. Like Ayumi, Kanon was conquered by Keima back in the first season of the anime. I don’t really remember the specifics of her arc, but she’s a far more memorable character on account of her pink hair.

Kanon is a bit of an odd inclusion in this episode. To be fair, the whole episode in general wasn’t what I expected (more on that in the next section). But, it felt like Kanon was thrown into the episode without much reason.

Miyako, Ayumi, Chihiro, and Elsie are forming a band and Kanon is an idol, so they have music in common. But aside from that, Kanon really had nothing to do with them starting a band. It’s not even like Kanon joined their band as the vocalist.

A poster of Kanon from The World God Only Knows: Four Girls and an Idol anime OVA
A poster of Kanon

The only explanation I can come up with for Kanon’s inclusion is the comment Chihiro made about their band playing at the school festival. Kanon said she’s performing during it, and Chihiro responded by saying they’d perform too. So, I guess this just sets up the festival for later in the series.

And, going back to the fact that Kanon didn’t join the band as the vocalist, I’m expecting that to happen in the future. Something I noticed was that their band doesn’t have a vocalist. There’s an open spot for Kanon.

My guess is that Kanon and the band are going to perform individually at first, but are then going to perform together afterward. If something like that doesn’t happen, then there’s not much of a point in this episode. But, I guess that’s why it’s an OVA.

Not the Episode I Expected

Considering the episode is titled Four Girls and an Idol and the cover art featured the girls in a band, I expected it to have more to do with music than it did. Sure, we got the formation of the band and Kanon made an appearance. But the episode wasn’t really about music at all.

Instead, the episode was about the musicians needing help studying for their English exam. The four band members needed to get 100% on their exams if they wanted to create a band club at school. And Kanon just joined the study session because she felt like it.

Technically, the title of the episode alone isn’t misleading. It does, in fact, feature four girls and an idol. But, I can’t be the only one who was caught off guard by the actual content of the episode.

Kanon showing off the 100% she got on her English test

Anyway, I liked how in the end, despite not all of the girls achieving a 100% on their exam, they were allowed to create their club. Mr. Kodama was in a good mood because Keima, his most hated student, didn’t get a perfect score on the exam. And as a result, he said yes to all of the students requesting things of him.

I don’t think this was a bad episode. There were aspects of it that I enjoyed. But, I still don’t really see the point of the episode. Even by OVA standards, this seemed pretty pointless. Most OVAs at least have some point, like fan service. This didn’t even have that.

Also, now that I think about it, The World God Only Knows doesn’t really include fan service despite being a harem anime. And I’m specifically referring to ecchi fan service. I know it’s not an ecchi anime, but considering it’s a harem, you’d think there’d be a small amount.

Conclusion

The World God Only Knows: Four Girls and an Idol is a 5/10. It’s a fine episode that exists, but I don’t have any strong feelings about it one way or another. It’s probably fine to skip. However, it’s not like it’s an awful episode to watch either.

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Special

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Special

Eris the Goblin Slayer

The events of the Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Special (Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu Special / 無職転生 ~異世界行ったら本気だす~) chronologically happen at the same time as the events of Part 2 Episode 5.

In Part 2 Episode 5, Rudy meets with his father in the city of Millishion. While he’s doing this, Eris goes on a goblin-slaying quest “on her own.” In reality, Rudy asks Ruijerd to follow her to make sure she’s safe. But, Eris doesn’t know about this.

This special, as you may have figured out already even if you haven’t watched it, follows Eris during this time. Obviously, that means this is one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. Not only is it Eris my beloved content, but it’s Eris x Goblin Slayer content.

Eris angry at Cliff for calling her ugly

The concept of goblin slaying within the Mushoku Tensei world is a little strange to me. While demons are definitely far smarter than goblins, being comparable to humans, they’re still fairly similar. Maybe this counts as demon racism, but some demons don’t look all that different from the goblins.

In my mind, hunting a goblin in this world would be the equivalent of hunting something like Neanderthals to us. They’re smart enough to wear clothes and use weapons — and they look somewhat similar to demons who are recognized as people, not monsters.

I guess the justification is simply that goblins attack people, so they need to be eradicated from the area. The same would probably be done to human highway bandits in this world.

Anyway, the goblin slaying bounty is paid out per left ear collected. And thanks to the “help” of Cliff, I don’t believe Eris returned with a single goblin ear.

Cliff Grimoire

Some people will be happy that Rudy didn’t appear in this special episode. Okay, technically he appeared briefly in the part when this episode reconnects to the end of Part 2 Episode 5. But there was no new Rudy content and he didn’t even have any dialogue when he did appear.

However, I’d take Rudy over Cliff Grimoire any day. Cliff Grimoire is some sort of nobility connected to the church. He appears to be the same age as Rudy and believes himself to be one of the strongest mages around (he’s not).

While Cliff isn’t horny like Rudy is (probably because he doesn’t have the mind of an adult), he’s way worse. He has the confidence and smugness of someone as skilled in magic as Rudy, but without the skills to back it up.

Cliff’s personality is what makes him unbearable. Just because he’s not as skilled in magic as Rudy is doesn’t mean he’s a bad mage. He can still cast powerful spells. But, just being able to cast powerful spells is only one part of being a mage in an adventurer’s party.

For example, when Cliff uses his powerful fire spell, he directs it directly at the goblins Eris is currently fighting. He doesn’t even consider that Eris could get caught up in his attack. If he was partied up with someone less competent, they could have been seriously injured or killed.

Additionally, Cliff doesn’t seem to understand that Eris completing goblin slaying bounties. Because of the spell he casts, she’s unable to collect any of the goblins’ ears. He then suggests they go find something stronger to fight because goblins are no match for him.

Though, it’s entirely possible Eris just never explained what she was doing to him.

Eris the Human Slayer

I mentioned how slaying goblins as a quest is a bit odd in this world because they’re so similar to some demons. However, it’s no wonder that Eris has no problem slaying goblins since she also has no problem slaying humans.

As far as I can remember, this episode is the first time Eris has ever killed another human. Up until now, I believe she’s only killed various monsters. And, you’d think this would have a bigger impact on her than it did.

I can understand why she didn’t take a lot of time to consider the fact that she was about to take human lives. She needed to act quickly if she was going to save the female knight and the girl. It was also clear to her that the assassins had already sensed her presence.

While I think a normal person would have some serious moral questions about their actions after killing five or so people, Eris seems to view it as business as usual. For example, Rudy would probably puke afterward if he did what Eris did. And I think even Ruijerd would acknowledge what he’d done if that was him.

But, I actually think the fact that Eris isn’t affected by her actions at all is actually pretty on-brand for her. She has an amazing ability to accept difficult things and move on from them. Sure, she just killed some people, but she’d justify her actions by saying they were assassins and she saved a child.

Obviously, that’s a good justification. But this isn’t the only time we’ve seen her do something like this. Every time she’s run into a hardship that personally impacted her, she’s moved passed it, such as the execution of her grandfather.

Conclusion

The Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Special is a 9/10. It had great Eris content and a very well-animated fight scene. It was content that I personally wanted to see ever since Part 2 Episode 5. And it introduced some new characters who I think we’ll meet again in the future of the series.
