I believe the OVA is the perfect form of anime.
1. No post production clean-up, it's already a finished product.
2. No censorship due to theatrical or television release.
3. It can be as long or as short as you want it in length of the series or by episode.
You'll see no arguments from me.
enjoy waiting forever
Yes, that may be a problem, but it all depends on the show. A lot of my favorite series end up being OVAs. And I just finished Memories.
enjoy your one episode per 6 months
seconded, but sometimes they get cancelled, when nobody buy them...
FUCK YES OVAS
That's true, all hentai are ovas.
Why are you bringing Memories?
Mnemosyne episode 2 is already out. It really depends on the show I guess.
Now let's name finished OVA series that are worth a watch.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes of course.
I mean, yeah, Gunbuster...
Gundam MS 08th Team
Tales of Symphonia (i admit i'm a huge cult faggot for the game)
Mahou Tsukai Tai (Magic User's Club)
Macross Zero (or was it a TV show?)
Learn to anime shithead. OVA's can have a maximum length of 6 episodes.
And galactic heroes is not a fucking OVA!
OVAS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY
>The Oba-chan Seducer !7kjGbZlVeg
You are a faggot, or a troll, or both...
sage for Oba-chan seducer
Then explain why all ova's are made of 1,2,3,4 5 or 6 episodes!!
God I hope you're a troll.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Patlabor the OAV
Because it's not the length, it's how it's released.
Patlabor the O A V, not the O V A. There's a differene shithead,or you just misspelled the word.
CON: Too short.
You do not belong here.
Right, now you've made it obvious you're a troll.
Unless you have series where each episode is fairly long, like Armitage or Crying Freeman. Then it gets closer to being a season length.
If OVA's can be longer than 6 episodes, why are the School Rumble OVA, FLCL and ROD OVA 2,6 and 4 episodes long?
Why not longer?
Like Hunter X Hunter? Which had two OVA series, and they were both at least 12 episodes.
...Because that's the length they wanted it to be?
No. They were direct to dvd releases,but that doesn't make them to OVAs.
Original video animation (オリジナル・ビデオ・アニメーション, Orijinaru bideo animēshon?), abbreviated OVA (オーブイエー or オーヴィーエー, ōbuiē or ōvīē?) (and sometimes incorrectly as OAV), is a term originating from Japanese animation (anime) for animated films and series which are made specially to be released on home video formats.
Dallos directed by Oshii. The first OVA ever and it's fucking awesome.
And guuys,let's just forget this brawl. I got better things to do than fight.
If OVAs can be longer than 6 episodes, then why is Legend of Galactic Heroes 110 episodes long? Oh wait...
Actually it's fucking boring and stupid. It looks nice on occasion though.
>>10018810 DDL link?
I admit I lol'd.
I watched it without subs so I didn't care about the story that much. Maybe it was stupid.
Considering how quickly Oba-chan surrendered after the facts stared him in the face, maybe he isn't a troll. Maybe he really IS that fucking stupid.
