Akikan!'s Cans Roll out TV Door, into OVA

Akikan! OVA? Apparently.

Speaking of sequels-- Akikan! has reportedly scored itself an upcoming OVA. See, Akikan! can do these kinds of things because it is completely free of such unnecessary burdens as quality or plot.


Seriously though, OVAs usually have a much bigger per-episode budget than a TV series, and can also be decidedly more ecchi by virtue of not being broadcast, so it'll be pretty interesting to see how an Akikan! OVA turns out. I wonder if they'll break tradition by making it actually look good, or if they'll stick to the habit of low-budget? I would actually bet on the latter; in this economy it probably wouldn't hurt them to save money, and fans of the series are used to the show's look, after all.


Still...the idea of a super shiny hi-quality Akikan! is rather intriguing...what do you think?

I think that I wish I could get the time of my life spent watching this series back ^_^

Me too. And I only watched one episode.

I didn't watch the series and I doubt I'll be watching this.
