Lieutenant Mizuki, an officer of high standing in the Japanese Armed Forces, has served her country dutifully, sacrificing everything she knows and loves – including her own body. As a prototype weapon of immeasurable power, she willingly did away with the life of a normal woman to serve and protect as a fighter unmatched. With the advent of a stronger and more efficient weapon by the name of Chise, however, Mizuki feels strangely put out and unneeded. Through this vacant and seemingly-normal replacement, however, Mizuki learns a lot more about herself than any military service could have taught her...
I don't know what the heck the guy in the other review is talking about. This OVA is a must watch for those who liked the main series and supplements it nicely, showing more of the actual war, Chise's mental struggles as well as what she is capable of while in her weapon mode. It also clarifies some things that were never explained in the main series (ex: why she was the one chosen). Showing things from another character's perspective in parallel (Mizuki's) was an interesting touch too. The only negative thing about it is the amount of nudity that kind of came out of nowhere (in comparison to the TV series). I guess they wanted to make full use of the OVA format.
