The To Heart franchise (based on a bunch of computer games) is a funny beast. To Heart gave us an episodic Slice of Life story with lovable characters, To Heart ~Remember My Memories~ added the drama and romance aspects that were missing in the first season, making the series as a whole a success for me. Then again, To Heart 2 contained nothing but annoying side characters with way too much screen time - no drama, no romance, no development. But To Heart 2 OVA was a surprise for me, with three nice side arcs of the game each of which was funny and focusing on one or two new characters. So what is this new side story going to be?
The first episode is similar to one of the OVAs, a feature episode for Tama-nee. Despite starting with a serious note, it is almost pure comedy with all the girls taking advantage of Taka-kun's lost memory and telling him weird things about the past. All in all a lite harem episode with an nice ending. The second episode is about Yume, one of the most annoying girls of this franchise, suddenly facing unknown feelings towards a certain boy and thus finally giving her one dimensional character at least a little bit more depth.
Not earth-shattering stuff for sure, but a nice watch.
