Since there is no synopsis here is one: In classrooms after school, in the gymnasium at night, in empty toilets... everyone has heard rumors about them at least once, and they are still talked about even today. Rumors such as Kuchisake Onna, Hanako-san, and the Purple Mirror change over time, but these scary and interesting stories are always of interest to children. This work is a collection of reader submissions from the fortune-telling magazine "My Birthday", which is popular among elementary and junior high school students, and is an animation and live-action film of selected frightening...

The whole story unfolds within a dungeon, much like the game upon which this OVA is based. The storyline itself is quite simple and lacks originality, filled with many clichés. The animation is average, nothing spectacular, but some effects are quite interesting, as well as some animations during fights, although they don't make much difference overall. The characters are extremely generic and shallow, but in this aspect, there's nothing to complain about because that's the OVA's intention. All in all, I think this OVA deserves a watch, but don't expect something out of this world.See full review
This OVA has a story that will hardly capture the viewer's attention besides being the typical kind of story found in OVAs, where things happen with very little or almost no explanation about why things are happening, how things got to that point, and such. Basically, they show a snapshot of the story's events and magically expect to engage the viewer. In this OVA, it's even worse because there are two time skips. The animation is good, nothing spectacular, but the art direction is very well done, as is the character design, which, in my opinion, are the two strongest points of the OVA. The characters can...

Well, as far as I understood, the story of this OVA, despite being released a long time after the original, takes place before the original, and the original, which was released first, ends up being an epilogue to the series. That being said, the story of this OVA is kind of meh, not very interesting, even though the first two episodes (especially the first) have a vibe similar to Cowboy Bebop, it quickly becomes clear that it's just a vibe. The animation has significantly lower quality compared to the original, as well as all the other technical aspects, art direction, character design, and such... See full review
This OVA is fun and enjoyable. Despite the story being simple, it manages to keep your attention. As for the animation, there is some good animation in there; unfortunately, it is mostly reserved for very short scenes, lasting no more than 5 seconds. The rest of the animation, which comprises the majority of the episodes, is just above average. To make up for that, the art direction is very good, as is the character design, which is sharp and pretty to look at. The characters are fun in their own way but nothing too original. All in all, I would recommend this series, but it is far from the best series the... See full review
Don't believe the reviewers, this is without a doubt one of the worst and most infuriating anime I have ever seen. The MC is a pussy slave who is ready to sacrifice everything for a girl that came from god knows where, didn't even talk to him, and is acting strange. Any normal person would get the fuck out, but not our pussy slave MC. If that is not enough, during each episode, you will hear him scream the girl's name, Lalaru, for a good 100 times. I mean, why not, right? The story is beyond boring, if it was not already clear by the above paragraph. But not happy with that, they made the story glacially... See full review
This whole anime is very generic. The story is absolutely nothing new; it has been done before in many different media forms all over the place. Not only that, it takes at least 3 episodes for things to barely start making sense, as a lot of information is thrown at you with just a few lines of character explanation, and you have to move on with the flow and understand things as it goes.
The animation is pathetic and devoid of any saving grace whatsoever. The art direction is horrendous; everything looks bland and, again, generic. The character design is equally generic; you can barely... See full review
This entry continues the story of "Burn Up! W," delving deeper into the real culprits behind everything that happened in "Burn Up! W" and in this series. It follows the same plot structure, with each episode standing on its own, but everything is connected in the background. This time, the background element is more prominent and plays a much more active role in each episode. Additionally, this entry has a stronger comedic focus, featuring numerous parodies of famous anime like "Evangelion," while still maintaining its ecchi elements. The animation remains average overall... See full review
This OVA differs significantly from the original series, with everything except the police setting being different. The focus of the story is much more comedic and ecchi-oriented. The first three episodes present an overarching background story that slowly unravels throughout them but only becomes the main focus in the last episode.
Unfortunately, the animation quality has severely dropped compared to the original, despite being done by the same studio. The character design is also much worse and lacks the charm of the original series. The most noticeable downgrade is the overall art direction... See full review
This OVA was undeniably cool, but the complexity and size of the narrative couldn't be fully covered in just two 25-minute OVAs, so it's not surprising that many aspects are left unfinished, lacking a proper conclusion. Nevertheless, it remains entertaining and shares some similarities with "Ginga no Eien Densetsu" ("Legend of the Galactic Heroes"). The animation is decent but not outstanding, while the art direction successfully creates a gritty and dark atmosphere. The characters are interesting, but unfortunately, they didn't have sufficient time to truly shine due to the limited... See full review
This movie serves as a continuation of the 4-episode OVA, tying up loose ends from the previous storyline. While it accomplishes this, I found that it dragged in certain parts. The animation, art direction, and characters remain consistent with the OVA, with no major changes to note. Overall, it is a must-see if you have watched the OVA, but if you haven't, it may not hold as much appeal.See full review
This OVA manages to keep you engaged with its compelling story in each and every episode. However, when considering the overall narrative as a single entity, it may not make much sense or be particularly interesting, at least from my perspective. One aspect I found intriguing was how the anime portrayed robots as humans, and how some people in that world are shocked when they are "killed." It's such an absurd idea, and what's even more unsettling is that such scenarios will become a reality in our own world, where the "killing" of robots will be deemed illegal. Let that sink in...

This is the final OVA of the series, but it can't be considered part of the original universe, despite featuring the three main characters. The OVA implies that it takes place in a parallel universe, but let's treat it as a spin-off series. The story itself is generic and lacks depth, serving as a mere excuse for the girls to reunite. It transitions into an intergalactic fantasy narrative with an evil witch and similar nonsensical elements that viewers of the previous entries may be accustomed to, albeit in a different setting.
The art direction in this OVA is notably downgraded compared to the first... See full review
This OVA continues to lack a coherent storyline, leaving many aspects unexplained, such as the background of the girls, the obsession with C-ko, and the source of A-ko's superhuman abilities. It embraces a chaotic and nonsensical approach, which may appeal to some viewers but leaves others dissatisfied. Furthermore, the animation quality has noticeably declined compared to the previous OVAs, lacking the sharpness and visual appeal that was once present. The characters remain unchanged, offering nothing new or compelling. Overall, it appears that the Project A-ko franchise is progressively declining with... See full review
This OVA's story is even worse than its predecessors, being utterly silly. However, the animation, despite a change in the responsible studio, maintains the same quality as the previous iterations, which is quite remarkable. A real miracle I must say. The characters remain mostly unchanged, except for C-ko, who becomes even more unbearable this time. Despite these shortcomings, the overall experience can still be somewhat enjoyable if you approach it as silly, nonsensical fun. Considering that watching this OVA is unlikely without watching the previous ones, I would recommend it as a must-watch.See full review
This OVA takes place three weeks after the movie and has even less of a story than its predecessor. It presents a series of nonsensical events one after another, and eventually, you come to accept and enjoy it for what it is: pure, nonsensical fun. The animation maintains the high quality seen in the movie, making it a joy to watch. The character design is charming and entertaining, adding to the overall appeal. While the characters themselves are even more nonsensical than the story, they are incredibly fun and likable. All in all, this is a must-watch, and I highly recommend it. Another thing to point... See full review
This movie has a very, very simple story and many nonsensical things going on. The origin of the MC's powers is never explained whatsoever. The whole A, B, C, Ko names are also never explained. What's left is a story filled with parodies of other anime and a very repetitive first part. However, the animation is excellent and fluid, managing to keep the viewer engaged with the crazy fights. The character design is charming, and the art direction is on point, showcasing great talent. Another high point is the sound, with enjoyable songs that perfectly match the craziness, especially the very emblematic song... See full review
This OVA is said to be a retelling of the original story, but it can barely be called that. While some plot elements are similar and the background remains almost the same, the whole thing is original enough to stand as its own story. Catty is at it again (I don't know why they love this character so much), doing what she always does. That being said, surprisingly enough, this OVA is not that bad (that is not to say it is good by any means), and it manages to keep the viewer engaged here and there. The story is also much more lighthearted than the original.
The animation is okay, not OVA... See full review
This just keeps getting worse and worse. In this OVA, Catty, the voyeur android, is at it again and picks six girls who happen to be carbon copies of some of the, I guess, favorite girls from the past Gall Force series to be the new "heroines." Unsurprisingly, what you get is women engaging in antics with lots of crying and complaining, and everything going wrong. And of course, the only woman who can fix things is, once again, unsurprisingly, the most masculine one of the bunch. Geez, I wonder why. The villain is Gorn, the same guy from the Earth chapter. While he was okay in that, now he is... See full review
While the other entries had a reason for the main characters to all be women, this one, however, does not. It feels like nothing more than a lesbian power fantasy. The story continues from the previous series, but it is even less engaging and interesting than its predecessors. It basically consists of three chapters filled with poorly thought-out plans or good plans that are halted due to women's emotions. The ending is nothing short of a laughable joke.
The animation in the first chapter is the worst out of the three. In many scenes, they either forgot or intentionally omitted the in-between frames... See full review
This OVA continues the story as prophesied in the Stardust War. However, the storyline itself is uninteresting and lacks engagement. It is even quite cliché, as the plot seems to be a mix and match of the last three iterations, particularly in terms of the relationships between the characters. The animation remains unimpressive, and the art direction feels low-budget. The characters themselves are also cliché. Overall, if you are already invested and have watched the previous three installments, you might feel compelled to watch this one as well. However, it is possible to save yourself the...

This is the third installment of the series, the most story-heavy one, and believe it or not, the most engaging, despite not being as action-focused as the second part. Everything that was not explained or just glossed over in the first two parts was carefully explained here. The animation was the same as before, nothing more, nothing less. The characters were the same from the second part but still just filler, since a new character steals all the scenes. Overall, without a doubt, this one is the best of the three by far and a nice conclusion to the series. I don't need to recommend it because if you... See full review
This is a continuation of the first movie and cannot be watched on its own. This OVA is more action-packed than the previous entry, but in terms of the story, there is barely any plot whatsoever. Fortunately, the only decent character from the movie makes a comeback here. The animation seems slightly better in this one, but still nothing outstanding. The character designs of the main girls are literally copied and pasted from the movie with a few differences here and there; basically, the girls are as generic as possible. The characters don't have much downtime to do their own things and become... See full review
This movie was okay. It started off a bit slow, and many things in the first half are not very important for the overall story. However, in the second half, it gets a bit better and manages to keep the viewer barely engaged. The plot feels like 3 or 4 OVAs glued together to create a movie. There is a lack of fluidity from the beginning to the end.The story is basically a futuristic Adam and Eve kind of story with many Eves and no Adam. The animation is average in the first half, but it improves in the second half. Maybe they were holding back for the climax. The character design is good and charming... See full review
This was yet another alien clone, but in anime form, with an interesting ending. The story is very generic and lacks engagement. The animation is average as well, but occasionally you catch glimpses of higher quality. The characters are as generic as can be. All in all, I would not recommend this one, although it's not that bad.See full review
Make no mistake, this OVA sucks, but to be fair, considering its purpose was to advertise and promote the game, I think it did an okay job of mixing game textures and objects into the anime to give you an idea of what the game would feel like. At least, that's what I believe they intended to do; otherwise, the lousy 3d animation would have no reason to exist. Overall, it's obvious that this is a hard pass, and I wouldn't recommend you even go near it. Or, like me, your curiosity, especially if you've played the game, might get the best of you.See full review
I remember the first season being much better and more engaging, and I expected the same level of quality to continue into this season. However, it turned out to be a total letdown. The entire show seemed to have transformed into a cute girls doing cute things while cute songs played in the background kind of anime, focusing more on the "moe" aspect than anything else. If you enjoyed season 1, I would recommend passing on this season.See full review
This is by far the weakest of the three Iczer OVAs. This time, they changed it a little and went with a mahou shoujo tokusatsu theme. The story is barely there, and the whole thing feels like a promotional OVA of some sort (although what it's promoting, only God knows...). The story ends abruptly without a clear conclusion, since the villains were still alive and kicking despite the 'The End' in gigantic letters on the screen. The animation is basically the same as Iczer Reborn, but the first part of the first chapter is better animated than the rest. The sound is forgettable once again. All the characters...

The sequel to Iczer-1. This ova is a few steps down in everything. The story is basically the same, barely keeping the viewer engaged. The animation is much, much worse when compared to the original, but it is what you would expect from a 90's ova. That being said it is still eons better than anything today. As for the music, while it was vibrant and present in the first, in this it was mostly forgotten and you don't hear anything special. The characters are again not likeable in the least and actually a little more dislikeable than before. All in all, since you watched the first one, this one is a must... See full review
This OVA is basically a tokusatsu anime, featuring all the usual tropes, but with the difference being that all the characters are girls. The story is simple, but manages to keep the viewer engaged. The animation, art, and character design are all superb, undoubtedly the highlights of the OVA. The music is what you would expect for the genre and complements the story well. The characters are neither likable nor unlikable, but they get the job done. Overall, I would recommend this anime, especially if you are a fan of good animation.See full review
