The reason I call these (The Mardock series) OVAs, and not movies is twofold. First the length, at 70 minutes it's no where near the time to be considered a film, heck most premium tv channel content runs 56-65 minutes now.   Second is the story. Each OVA doesn't stand on its own. You don't get a new plot or conclusion,  without the other two OVAs you're getting just a fraction of a story. For these to be considered individual movies you should be able to pick up #3 and be satisfied,  and get a completed story,  but you can't,  you need all 3, which makes it either an OVA or an extremely short series.

While the creators still don’t understand the meaning of the word “Prologue” at least they came much closer this time than they did for the first series. Story - 3/10 Much like the first “Prologue” this is more or less a single clip paired with a music...

Score 8/10

The Eden of the East Air Communicator movie is a recap of the film, but told in a very clever way. Story - 7/10 For the most part the story is exactly that of the series, just cut into a two hour movie. What little insights we do get are from the way the movie is presented. Although...
