Kirara is an OVA that has caught my attention a few months ago because of its original concept (and because I’m a sucker for ovas/series from the 80s), but it turned out to not live by my expectations. Wanna know why? Then go ahead and keep reading. The show tells the story of Kirara, a 24 year old girl who dies in a car accident on the day of her wedding and is sent 8 years back, when she and her future husband hasn’t started dating yet. On paper it sounds good, but the execution left a lot to be desired since they tried to cram way too much content in too little time. It’s especially noticeable in the latter half when they fast forwarded the events prior to the accident to the point it becomes a confusing mess. This also impacts on the characters. While none of them is intolerable to the point of making the show insufferable they end up being quite shallow due to the lack of any room to develop them. At least the animation is good. While a tad dated, the design of the characters and the backgrounds is nice, and there aren’t any noticeable flaw in this regard. It may not be groundbreaking, but it does its job. There’s not much to say about the OVA when it comes to the soundtrack and the voice acting. It’s not bad but it’s also very forgettable. All in all the OVA was ok at best. While it’s not bad by any means the lack of proper pacing and an inconclusive ending sours the experience quite a bit. You’ll probably enjoy the source material more tho.
