The Sacred Book of the land of Eija has been rediscovered and with it the legends of a mysterious and all powerful ship. Now Princess Crystal of Megaronia has set forth on a quest to recover the ship and its ultimate weaponry. All that stands between her and total domination of the world is a small group of misfits.
Up to a point, the viewer believes that the story has some saving grace, but then it becomes clear that this OVA is more of the same. There's nothing new, and they didn't even attempt to make it interesting in any way. The animation is average, but the character designs are a bit interesting, very medieval RPG-like. However, the characters are your typical do-gooders and walking cliches, so it's hard to root for them. In conclusion, I wouldn't recommend this OVA. However, if you don't mind these things and, heaven forbid, like them, you might have an average experience.
The first thing that shoots out at you are the character designs. I'm not sure whether these designs came first or Final Fantasy VI's, but the similarities are unmistakeable. Practically everything about this anime evokes FF6, from the "magitek" technology to the backdrop of empires and invasions. Unlike in FF6 though, the characters lack depth, because they are present not for their own exposition but to articulate a fable. But in a 4 episode OVA totaling about 2 hours, there isn't much time for exposition anyway. The action is constant and far from boring, though it can be difficult to follow. Worth a watch for the art style alone.
