Here is an OVA that aired in Spring of this year and appeared to fly under the radar - at least in the forums here in the sense of an individual thread being made.
It was announced last December, though: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-in-march-2014
It is based on a light novel series, and is essentially about some young girls learning to be maikos; that is, apprentice geishas.

I just finished watched this one, and though the subs were not that great on the whole the ep was rather enjoyable, I thought. Of course, being a Hocchan fan I am a bit biased.
Anyone else saw this one?
