[Score: 75% = "Rent-"]

Three new stories (no fourth episode "This Late" in the release I watched), thus this OVA is little more than one additional episode of the TV series. Same Art & Animation, weaker OP song but different ED songs for each episode.
  1. Bugs and the Heat (10 min, +): Two stories in one:
    • Tearing weed out in the hot sun, with my favorite character Aihara acting unusually talkative.
    • The pool episode. Again starring Aihara this was the highlight of this OVA for me.
  2. Slowly Drifting (5 min, 0+):
    • The perfect name for a slightly confusing story development with Ryouta's nemesis acting in a quite surprising way that leaves both Ryouta and Chika clueless about what actually happened. Very funny though.
  3. Stubborn (7 min, 0-):
    • Really, folks. Having Ryouta make the same mistake in the infirmary for the third time was a bit too much, and the girls forcibly measuring each other's sizes is getting old as well.
    • The first part about playing in the snow was not that great either.
So all in all it's a mixed bag. But with two nice episodes out of three this OVA is worth getting if you liked the TV series.
