DVD special episode detailing the events prior to the first episode of the main series.
Well, I realize this is coming a bit late. The OVA has been out for a while already, and the sub for it has been as well. Truth is Iâ€™ve already watched this quite a while ago as well but it wasnâ€™t until recently that I realized I should do a post for it, seeing as how I did the whole series of sola and I did the first DVD special episode, I figured I should do this one as well.
Overall, this episode was ok. The basic premise of having an episode that takes place before the first episode in the mains series I really like. It has a lot of potential for some really interesting bits of information and to see how the characters reacted before they met each other essentially. However, for the most part this episode didnâ€™t really seem to live up to that. Overall it was pretty good, but it didnâ€™t give any new information. It feels that they could have given a lot more information. They had such potential with this kind of set up but like I said they showed nothing new. They showed the characters acting like they did throughout the normal series. I just really wish they would have done a lot more with this episode.
I do want to stress though this episode wasnâ€™t bad at all, it just wasnâ€™t all that interesting in terms of new content. The first DVD special episode didnâ€™t give us anything new to the plot, but it really focused on comedy. It was kind of a fun break form what was happening. They didnâ€™t rally even seem to have that going for this episode. There was some humor, but they didnâ€™t focus on it. Overall I wish they would have done more with this, but it wasnâ€™t bad as just a stand alone episode, especially in the grand scheme of the show.
