Wind: A Breath of Heart - Omake OVA
[Score: 78% = "Rent"]
This one was produced for the fans of the game, two years prior to the TV series.
Art, Animation and Music are nothing special (old-style 2D anime without the 3D camera orgy of the series, and as such much closer to what I expected) but that's already better than the series was.
Given the limited amount of time it's difficult to have a self-contained story or character development. But to my surprise this special manages to provide both (look at Tsutomu's reaction during the closing scene).
While the story is clearly light-hearted it manages to credibly include a darker tone at a certain point, recalling the events of the series that these friends through to be over forever. And the final scene even provides a message, not unlike Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ Miyuki.
All in all a nice Christmas Omake episode, giving the term "fan service" a good name for once.
