I don't think it's been posted before, so I'll post a translation of the 3rd OVA's title.

The Striped Dance / The Labyrinth of the Maiden

So the half of the ova is already behind. I'm quite disappointed, the plot looks still undeveloped and they have only 50 min to develop and finish it.

I didn't even know that was a Robe, I thought that was just some freaked up form of Nina. So it seems like there's no materialize scenes for Nao or Chie. Can anyone confirm? I'm stuck at work for another 3 more hours so I'm surviving off of screencaps. T_T"

Im hoping sunrise had a change of heart and change the OVA count to around 6, otherwise, as everyone else has stated, it will be rushed.

Also i may as well repost it here...

Not only Chie's robe is ugly... Her element is as well.

Mhh. A 7 from me, feeling generous today.

Don't get me wrong, it was a nice way to spend half an hour, and enjoyable enough. But where the first OVA really impressed me, namely projecting the chill of a _credible threat_ in a high-paced story, the second one lost this serious atmosphere almost completely with its silly and disturbingly pointless antics. If anything, it gave me a dreadful "filler" feeling rather than the thrill of OVA1. Usually that doesn't bother me too much, but in a 4-part show?!? The speedy pace of OVA1 turned into a slothy molasses pace of OVA2. Too bad. Also, even though many parts were animated in very high detail, several other "normal" scenes looked disturbingly "off" and sloppy. Like a second-rate art team in fact. Strange.

Still, the last 5 minutes managed to reconcile me with the 20 before. Nao is always good news, and in fact I'm looking forward to seeing more of her next ep. So is Nina's reappearance. And finally, I really liked the subdued new ED!

So let's see where this one's heading after all. I suspect that OVA3 will make or break the show. With more Nao and Nina, my hopes are high!

The ED....I LOVE the ED.

Front part was hilarious but so-so. The real action only starts mid-way.
You gotta love Haruka.

And yeah....4 episodes is way too little. I see alot of cramming for the last 2 episodes.

Well, this is only supposed to be an OVA, correct?

What else are you to expect? I mean, I don't think they want another Otome series, so they may be trying to wring every ounce of awesome out of this series (something I didn't see for 5 straight episodes of Otome) before they unleash their third Mai series on the world.

I love storm! I had no idea that Yuki Kajiura was behind it and Ami Koshimizu's singing was just beautiful. As for the Deltas, they were okay, but only okay. Oddly enough, I actually liked Chie's Robe and Element.

Spoiler for Possibly Spoiler-ful Question:
Nao doesn't materialise in the ep, and Chie is materialised from the beginning.

And yes, Nina's "final form" is a robe as far as the official website goes (they called it her "Ver 2.0" Robe, similar to Arika's Zwei robe).

I just saw it, the action scenes were well done. But this episode felt like something was missing compared to episode 1. I guess there's not much happening at all besides the bus jackers squabbling as well as Ishigamin squabbling. Pretty disappointing.

Spoiler:


With only 2 episodes left, I hope this means they will be wrapping things up in the next episode which hopefully means more action.

By the way, at 22:13, the place where Nao is is part of Artai and is called Kokuyouguu. I like the ending song as well. This one is more like Kajiura's style compared to Believe. Was Believe composed by Kajiura as well?
