This is nothing but a small little OVA list I made a while back. Which I’d like more people to check out. OVA(or Original video animation) are often the video format many anime fans tend to skip which is why they just ain’t that popular. And that sucks because there are so many Gems out there that come in the form of OVA’s and I’d like to bring those gems to people’s attentions. That is the reason I’m posting this little list. Because I plan to make more and go into more detail in some other OVA’s since they tend to be very short so they can be easy to write about. But for now a basic list will do with some OVA I really think are worth watching will do.
The basic way i’m going to make this discussion is.
*Name of the anime first
*Picture of the anime
*Summary of the anime
Now lets get started
1. Blue Submarine No. 6
Genre: Action, Adventure, Mecha, Military, Sci-Fi
The once famous and well respected scientist Zorndyke has bred a new genre of living being, one that thrives on the oceans and lives to destroy humans. Zorndyke believes it is time that the humans were relieved of their rule of the earth. It is up to Blue Submarine No. 6 and the rest of the Blue fleet to put an end to Zorndyke’s madness and creations.
2. Cossette no Shouzou

The anime is about art student Eiri Kurahashi, who works in an antique shop. One day, he sees the image of a girl in an antique glass. To his shock, she appears to be moving and living out her life before his eyes. He becomes infatuated with the girl, and one night at midnight, somehow makes contact with her. He learns her name is Cossette, and that she was an aristocrat’s daughter during the 18th century.
She reveals to him that her spirit has been entrapped within the glass by her murder, which was perpetrated by her betrothed, the artist Marcelo Orlando. To set her free, she tells Eiri, a man must be willing to take upon himself punishment for the sins Marcelo committed.

So when a girl named Ame Ochibana claims they are linked together from their previous lives, he is highly skeptical and doesn’t want anything to do with her. Even stranger is that her fondest wish is to be his servant. Thinking that Ame must be delusional, he tries to distance himself from her. But when a classmate is murdered, Juu instead decides to keep her close, believing the strange girl to be the culprit.
