as a houki fan, I'll give this 10/10
lol..... Charlotte in the beginning is so moe~~
laughed so hard when Chifuyu enters the scene and ruined the mood
Burnt pot... Oden.... xD (although I'm bored so much at playdoh scene)
and why should Chifuyu-nee blushing????!!!! is it.... really an incest???

the second part.... houki's flag everywhere....
and damn you firework!!! ^^
at least I can see the ending more clearly right now.....

little boring but it's okay since we don't see IS for few months... a warming heart episode

Ah this episode reminds me why I love Char so much.

On the other hand, it reminds me why I hate characters like Ichika. Goodness gracious the girls might as well have been invisible the whole time Chifuyu was there.

They all get the same idea to go to his house on the same exact day Still, seeing them in clothes other than their I.S uniforms looks refreshing at least.

once again, I can't help but completely agree with Naota-boy (nsfw-ish link). I swear, it's like he can read my mind.

despite the wasted potential, a solid 9/10.
It was good having this series and its charactersgirls back again, even if for a short time. - especially my Laura! -

I now seriously hope s2 is on its way, because... it just doesn't make any sense to have KoreZom s2 already scheduled for spring, and still no news about IS...

Dan in the festival was unexpected I didn't think he cared so much about Ran, given the way she treats him on a daily basis Still, they pretty much disregarded the kiss at the end of episode 12.

@ Box - What do you mean? Did Dan panic more or something?

No, I meant the one in episode 12.

1. They first tried to do it in the same place as the anime.
2. Ichika hears the other girls arriving from a distance and brings Houki behind a boulder to hide.
3. Cue kiss attempt.
4. His head hits something, but he doesn't open his eyes and instead tries to lean in again.
5. Head hits again, the he opens his eyes and...

Which makes it all the more wall banging that he's back to his usual dense self come the next volume. Anyway, we should discuss this in the Light novel thread, not here.

As far as the OVA goes, it was really different from the novel in more ways than one, which is understandable I guess, I'm just glad to have more IS until the inevitable 2nd season, just seeing the OP again after all this time gave me chills, and I like how they used that song for the ED, I wondered what it was for.

I didn't get the joke about Laura completely misunderstanding what oden was.

There's no pun really. I think it's just more on the fact that the materials she used were inappropriate or too big. Most Oden is smaller, right?

The series would have been better if it had focused on the harem antics from the start. It's a lot more enjoyable when it doesn't try to have a plot. Now, if only Ichika could go choke on a pretzel on something... God, that guy is dense as a brick. His obliviousness infuriates me so much. Definitely one of the worst harem lead ever.

Thank god Char was there. She is wonderful enough to make me overlook everything else. I'll keep watching this show just for her no matter what. It's such a shame the second half was wasted on Houki.

As a strong Charlotte Shipper, Ichika's super dense skull at the end was a wonderful thing for me, and many Houki fans on other sites over exaggerated this episode, glad I saw it for myself. While this episode shows Houki has the edge, this is far from over. If anything, episode 12 pretty much nailed the Houki choice. But this episode completely knocked that nail out

It really does make you wonder now, what the hell was Ichika thinking when going for that kiss...I'm still banking on boobs in his face....so he went with it lol.

I actually enjoyed this OVA quite a bit. I like the comedic timing, I like the fact that the characters didn't make me want to shoot something, and I liked how mundane, yet enjoyable it was. Nice little epilogue.

Reminded me of the Rosario episode when all the girls showed up at Tsukune's house as well...

I got my hopes up when they said let's play a game and Naked Twister wasn't suggested. Ah well...

Not sure about him being the worst harem lead, but in the sense of being dense he sure is right at the top...

Can't be worse than Natsuru Senou Anyway, the OVA was good overall and the cooking segment made me laugh I am surprised that none of them suggested games that were more exciting than play doh and cards.
