|Title (Japanese)||Ankoko Shinden Takegami||Art Sample
|Notes||1990, 45 mins x 3 eps. Subtitled UK release from ADV
|Synopsis||School /demon myth story in which a schoolgirl's fervent wish accidently releases the "dragon" from its shrine prison. It is opposed by the supernatural force "Susano", embodied in male student and appearing as a rather Guyver-like figure.|
|Review||An overly short and forgettable OVA - I watched about half of the first OVA for this review before being convinced that I had watched it previously.
Insufficient time is devoted to developing any of the characters to the point where we care much what happens to them. Some of the action is quite confusing - why does the "good" force Susano go around killing people in the streets? The release of the dragon and final battle of ep #1occupies only a few minutes of screen time.
