And unlike the first, this one delivers. While I still don’t care for the character designs, we finally get a glimpse of what will make or break this new Aika incarnation: the panchira. I’m pleased to report that it’s every bit as hilariously blatant as the first installment was ten years ago (was it that long?), and if nothing else should provide great fodder for a drinking game. I’m looking forward to the OVA’s April 25th release with guilty (or not so guilty…) pleasure. (no more)
