Third time's the charm (Lord, I hate that cliche) with the Airbats OAVs, as the third is by far the best.
The first part revolves around the 801 Squadron's participation in a ramen eating contest and the mayhem that ensues. Konishi is determined to train Private Takuya Isurugi to eat competitively...at the expense of the poor private's ability to keep food down. Sadly, the ending is all too predictable, but it's fun watching it all unfold.
Part 2 gives us some background on the neglected characters of Sakura Saginomiya and Captain Konishi and their relationship in officer training. It's a sweet tale of unrequited love that is a nice change of pace from the usual maniacal Airbats fare.
The animation is quite decent, thank you, and the character designs of course are excellent. The opening theme song is recycled once again from the two previous Airbats releases, but that's OK, it's a good song. I very much enjoyed the Airbats OAVs, and this latest (last?) one was easily the best. Some previous knowledge of the characters is helpful, but this volume is a buy for me.
NOTE: The 3 Airbats OAVs were released as one series thru ADV, with Airbats First Strike being the first series, 2nd Strike being the second, etc.
