I thought it was okay, though I agree that they could have gone without the fanservice. Now that I've complained, what I liked:

Spoiler for All of it:


Overall, 7/10 in my book.

Wow i just saw it (with subtitles). At first i thought MO was just an AU to MH with lots of recycled materials but these ova might prove wrong. Its really getting intresting, but knowing sunrise the last one is either gonna be rushed or be left unresovled.

Hmm, let's count the 'coincidences' shall we?

There is a limit to the amount of things someone can call coincidence.

Spoiler for Ep 3 and Original Series:
There is just one major problem that I can't solve; I simply can't assume they are just separate buildings that happens to look the same, especially since the railings inside it at the end of MO had ribbons tied to them.

Until they could come up with a satisfactory explanation for the ribbons being there, I am going to assume the two buildings are one and the same.

Its one of those thing the creators of the series never come out and confirm one way or the other, so we can look at it either way. For my view of the series, I still say that if we can have duplicate characters I don't see a problem with duplicate buildings (or duplicate ribbons, either).

When we see the cocoon like thing I think we can see his eye inside of it. It certainly looks like him. Fumi-thing also summons something that looks suspiciously like his sealing sword.

It was best acting since Rie Tanaka on Tomoe or Suigintou.

And what would you do if someone very close person got hit by knife or something?
Say "...oh my god... she got hit..."

You've got me a little wrong.

I didn't mean Nina's feelings. I understand them very well.
The point is, they overdid the "direction". You know, the camera movement, zoom, short pause before the scream.. also, the voice itself - it all sounded and looked too cheesy for me. I don't know if you understand me, but I can't explain it well. It's the matter of impression that the scene made on me.

That's the another reason why I love MH - it's incredibly well directed and the characters' feelings are shown perfectly (just watch Mai - scenes with her anger, sadness, confusion... they're excellent).

No, i got the point right , and the voice was best on them, greatest "NOOOOOO" ever.

And i know, everybody has their own opinion, so lets no argue this anymore.

How's cameo as an answer for you? Final Fantasy Tactics made shitloads of references to other games in the FF franchise but that doesn't mean they're canon right?

It's not a "cameo" if it is getting entangled in the main plotline, which it clearly has in the latest ova episode. If FFT had given Cloud his own arc in the story and had vital roles in the politics of the war, then yes one has to wonder if he was the same Cloud as FF7.

So yeah, the ribbons wouldn't have been more than a creative touch as long as the building itself isn't important in the story. But now it IS important.
