Fans of the manga seem to ignore the first OVA (I"s - From I''s)... I didn't really like it, having read the manga first.

This new OVA seems to suit the manga better, for sure. First installment impressed me in terms of cleanliness of art and the character voices.

I definitely liked I''s Pure, agreeing with many who have mentioned the awesome animation quality. The voices are good, and the recap of the manga was done well. It is too bad they've decided to make it last only 6 episodes, because the manga storyline was soooooo intense and breathtaking at several points. Hopefully, the transferring of those moments into animation will be extremely good. Episode 1 was awesome!

I just watched episode one, and I must say the animation is great!! I love the facial expressions, they are so well done. The ecchi bits were classy enough to not put me off, usually I don't watch animes ecchi related, but I think I am hooked after the first episode. Now I even want to read the manga, heh.

Finally watched the OVA and it was better than expected I was worried that it would be too condesence that it would turn out bad but thankfully it didn't. My only complaint and anyone who may have read the manga may agree with me is in the scene there suppose to plan out something for the freshmen welcoming party. In the OVA it comes out odd as to why his acting a bit of a jerk to Iori when he likes her alot but in the manga it makes sense because you can hear his thoughts he doens't know how to act around with her and is very nervous that's why he acted that way towards her in that scene.

But other than that the OVA was really great I already have a feeling as to where there going to end it and I think it's a good spot to end it at. Too bad we won't see the diffculties the relationship will go threw after they hook up. Hey maybe if it sells well enough maybe tell make more episodes yeah I know wishful thinking but you may never you it may just happen.

Would have really loved for I''s to be turn into a TV series instead but it has been over five years since the manga ended and by Japanesse standards it's considered "old" so I guess the animation company that's doing I''s is playing safe by doing a OVA series instead.

Hope Katsura's current work that his working on Zetman also gets animated but it's a bit too soon for that since there's only six volumes currently.

Also one more comment loved the opening song and the style they used very umm artistic.

I really wish that just one love drama anime main character could not be a complete f@$#ing pervert/meatstick.

This series has some kind of hope of going along those lines... but even in the first episode the main character has failed me. Oh well.. he does seem to be a pretty cool guy, and Iori seems like an interesting character as well. I'm definitely watching this.

Well Ichitaka does fantasize about Iori becuause he wants her really bad basicly Ichitaka is like any typical boy at his age as you said he is a good guy but defineatly not a pervert meatstick like other idiot main characters in shonen love/romance anime, now teratani his a pervert/meatstick lol.

personally, i am an I'S fanboy

:P

the manga was great ( which i read about 7-8 years ago) still can't forget that touching plot

this OVA was a pretty good one anyway, the first one was horrible BTW -_-;;

overall, i will rate this OVA as 9/10



hopefully you all like it too


and also, yes, according to the official website and many other sources, this OVA will be released as DVD, one episode per month



one more point to mention, this time the I'S pure DVD sale price is way higher than the other DVD releases( such as prayers, Mutto), why? nobody knows, maybe this manga is so successful, and ppl still would pay for that much for it

:O

the ova1 as very enjoyable for me.
Sometimes i cant look an episode streight through because i have to reconsider my thoughts and emotions or something like that and then i just have to push the pause-button.
It was like this when when she picked up her own faked nudepic that fell out of his notebook, just after she accepted his apology.
You know that feeling when you go like "OMG now its over" and you feel embaressed about something too the characters feeling embaressed about?
