It’s another episode of the Anime OVA series! On this week’s edition, I take a look at two OVAs that I enjoyed recently, namely Kyō Kara Ore Wa!! (From Today I’ll) (1992) & Lodoss-tou Senki (Record of Lodoss War) (1990). These OVAs are quite different from one another – yet they both taught me a lot of things about comedy, direction, storytelling and more.
