A collection of shorts within the 24 minute OVA. Of course, the summer vacation with the bikinis. There was no real direction to the different stories. A let down compared to the main anime.

An aimless series of skits that, for all their meandering frivolity, would serve as a not unenjoyable reunion with the likeable cast of Masamune-kun's Revenge--were it not for the fact that, whether frivolous or narratively essential, this OVA (bizarrely) serves as a bonus reel for the Masamune manga, rather than a bonus/sequel for the Masamune anime. 

In other words: prepare to be entirely without the context to explain why the characters act (and look) juuuuuust different enough from how you remember them to make you feel like your friends have been hanging out without you.

An unfortunate turn for those not in the know.

I don't know what's happening in this it feels like they do a time skipped because in this aki has short hair and it feels like they are already dating plus they are already 3rd years on this while in the original series they are only 2nd years I think this is after the revenge

Silver Link’s 2018 romantic comedy is a bolt-on to the highly-rated twelve episodes of season one. The OVA doesn’t actually progress the story arc in any way but is an outing for all the characters and, specifically, fleshes out some of the lesser-known characters. This is done through three sub-stories. The first concerns the return of Aki, Yoshino, Neko, Tae and Kourou to Aki’s family island retreat. They had to go without Makabe as he hurt himself walking into a lamp post whilst vainly admiring his reflection in a shop window. Upon their return Yoshino is given a make-over by her elder sister before being ordered to take the day-off and go and enjoy herself. She does her best but feels uncomfortable not being around Aki. The third slot concerns the hilarious and bizarre behaviours of Makabe’s close family. Returning from school one day he is confronted by a girl whom he mistakes to be his mother. Actually, the girl is his cousin Haruka. It turns out that his mother (Kinue), her sister (Asae) and his cousin all bear an uncanny physical resemblance despite their obvious age differences. Makabe’s sister Chinatsu persuades the three of them to cosplay in various matching outfits whilst she takes pictures of them.

Whilst sitting outside the cut and thrust of the main story there is just a small and interesting episode when Aki phones Makabe one evening (from the island) to admit to him that she is lonely. Quite how this fits in isn’t clear but combine this with the fact that she has cut her hair a lot shorter is suggestive of the idea that the OVA is placed into some future time when she maybe dating Makabe. This is meant to be an “after-story” for the manga. This show is a fun, if frivolous, addition to season one. At time of writing, it is bundled in as an un-named ‘episode thirteen’ of season one by Crunchyroll. So, if you were watching that you got this for free. Yet its addition is slightly confusing as it sits nowhere really inside the rest of the story arc. Not essential but not a complete waste of time either.
