Super Fun OVA
This has that clean and crisp animation style from the golden age of OVA. The story is pretty funny and presented with a campy tone. There's also a nice amount of light T&A, which actually plays a role in the story. The English dub is good, capturing the right tone. The pacing is brisk, which when combined with the short run-time, serves these kind of 'b-movies' well.
