Best Anime OVA SpecialsI love certain OVA specials. Sometimes they can be more enjoyable than the actual anime itself. But which one's are the best? Here's a few options, the rest is up to you.
The Top Ten
Black Lagoon OVA: Roberta's Blood Trail was only five episodes but all five were outstanding to see. This series was already intense but these specials...just wow. First, read the manga and then watch the anime. Then watch the violence and thrill in this special. - RoseRedFlower
I love the five OVA specials of this series. I think the ones in FMA Brotherhood are pretty good too. Like the one with Riza and Winry, Izumi's "alchemy" survival training and even Mustang and Hughes befriend an Ishvalan. - RoseRedFlower
The OVA special really made me care about Mei Misaki. Her friendship with Misaki Fujioka made me sympathize with her when the curse hit. Plus it was nice to see she wasn't always the loner type and could actually laugh. - RoseRedFlower
The OVA specials were pretty cool. I loved the Jean special and how over the top insane it was. Plus the intro was hilarious with him replacing Eren or blocking Eren from our viewpoint. That special also made me like Jean more as a character. Then there's one with Hanji as she find Ilse's journal and we truly see her devotion to the Scouts cause. The best though as most expect is No Regrets. The one where we see how Levi got into the Survey Corps and why he acts the way he does. It was great and I'm curious to see how Season 2 plays out. - RoseRedFlower
FLCL is a very outlandish anime especially with its art direction. But it's DEFINTELY worth a watch... don't get turned off so easily with this one.
This anime is pretty split with it's viewership. Like how some people love or hate Clannad or Sword Art Online. However, if you do love FLCL (Fooly Cooly) then I would recommend watching the OVA's too. - RoseRedFlower
A great reboot of this series. I know somewhere deep inside, people cringe at the word 'reboot' but I loved this one. I think it's just as good as the original Hellsing with the same elements from the original. - RoseRedFlower
I was so happy to hear that this anime had OVA specials. The characters I loved came back, the story was interesting and it reminded me of why I loved this series to begin with. That's what an OVA should do. - RoseRedFlower
This one is did have an OVA sort of. It's more of a director's cut with added scenes, a different point of view and new dialogue. It was pretty enjoyable and might be considered filler but it wasn't the worst filler. - RoseRedFlower
They need to make more OVA's of some of the other manga one shots!
Yeah, that OVA special sort of saved me some of my complaints for this series. Like that confusing ending with Yuki's phone. It was neat to see what would happen - RoseRedFlower
This OVA helped with the ending of this series...
The OVA specials weren't the most groundbreaking but they were great despite that. They were simple and sweet from old characters we loved. Fun fact: I didn't know those were OVA's. My friend who gave me a flash drive of the series put them in chronological order. So I thought they were part of the episodes. - RoseRedFlower
The OVA's were cool I guess
