OVA Spotlight: Saikano: Another Love Song

The 2nd entry of our OVA spotlight reviews.
Saikano: The Last Love Song on This Little Planet, also known as “She, the Ultimate Weapon” was a manga written by¬† Shin Takahashi. In 2002, Gonzo produced a 13 episode anime adaptation, followed by 2 OVAs in 2005 which were produced by Studio Fantasia(Aika Zero). And a live-action film released in 2006.

The TV series was a very tame adaptation of the mang; only a couple of brief non-nude moments toward the end, including the sex scene. The manga had many nude scenes and focused heavily on the “adult” themes of the story. In the last few chapters the sex scene which has been best described as “raw animal sex”; no joke, seriously. So nudity was only in the manga until the OVAs and what a surprise it was.

Note: Since there’s no HD version, a DVD source was used.

Considering she had no boobs in the TV series, this is a BIG improvement.
