Now, he must learn how this mastermind is controlling all of the unfortunate happenings at school, and stop him from taking more innocent lives for his own selfish pleasure.

In the present, Yuzuru has long since forgotten this promise, and is happily dating a young woman named Satomi. That is, until Azusa decides to pay a visit and cash in on their past vows. What's worse is that Azusa, spiritually and mentally speaking, is not quite what she used to be. With time running out and sinister forces against them, Yuzuyu must protect his love from a newfound evil, or die in the process...
Campus Special Investigator Hikaruon and Laughing Target are not very similar in plot, but they do have the same type of mood about them. In both, the main character is driven by the need to relinquish a demonic evil and save the girl, creating a good horror element.
I also found that these two OVAs had a similar style of animation and music, but perhaps that is because they are both older works (even made in the same year). To sum it all up, if you are a fan of classic 80's anime, and fancy a dark story then you would like either of these!
When the planet Thanatos was destroyed, a young Maris was left with nowhere to go. Possessing strength six times that of a normal human made it difficult living on any other planet. She broke things everywhere she went and when the repair bills added up, Maris found herself in deep debt. Professional wrestling wasn't enough to keep the debts at bay so she took up work with the Space Patrol's Special Police! A call from her boss gives news that she hopes will change her life forever --she is being sent on a mission to save the kidnapped son of a wealthy politician. Her plan is to rescue the boy, but her motive is to steal his heart and gain his fortune in the process!
It's true, I love the 80's, and I think that Campus Special Investigator Hikaruon and Maris the Chojo absolutely reek of that era. They have a very similar style of music, and as you would guess, it's good ole tease your hair up, put on your spandex and rock to the 80's type of music. The animation and sound effects in these two OVAs reminded me of each other as well. Simply put, if you can enjoy the total cheesiness in the style of one of these anime, you will surely enjoy the other for the same reason!
