It’s the vacation of the lambs! Yeah!! The first Maria-sama ga Miteru OVA makes me wanna watch the series again LOL.
Ok, since I was impatient I went ahead and watched the raw for this one. It didn’t matter to me that I might not get a lot what was really going on–I used the excuse of listening practice for JLPT so that my conscience won’t bother me much. (I wanted to post my impressions yesterday, but a major headache forced me to forget about the whole thing.) On the other hand, I had also read a translation for the early part of this OVA; so I knew that Sachiko and Yumi were going on vacation. However, the translation I read was only up to the part where Yumi and Sachiko arrived at the vacation house; so after that I know no more about what was actually written in the novel. Still in the early part I can tell there are many things in the translation that were not included in this OVA.
Too much beauty sleep is just–too much
I really love the expression on Yumi’s face here
I’m too lazy to write a detailed summary (and I’m also not sure if I got the gist of everything anyway). But the main thing to look forward to here is the ‘showdown’ at a certain granny’s birthday party where the rich
bitches would-be Sachiko friends try to embarass Yumi. Yumi fans will get to hear her sing, with Sachiko playing the piano for her. 🙂
bitches stooges visit; the 4th visitor is Touko
Who ate my sandwiches??!!
What bothers me however, is Sachiko seems to be ‘weak’. I mean, her family’s super-rich, she can be mean and get away with it anyway. Why can’t she kick the asses of those brats? Er, ok, she’s a lady, but still, I don’t understand her this time.
The first time I watched the OVA, I was having the LSS with Yumi’s song
Now with only a short time to show the story, I think it is better to read the novel or the translations (if there ever is a complete one). However, my main gripe with this OVA is that the animation is not so great: there are times when the chins are too pointed, or the way the arms were drawn look awful to me. I do believe that Sachiko was more beautifully drawn in the series.
Now I have to wait for another month or so for the next OVA. In the meantime, I’ll wait for the subs, if ever one comes out.
