Nanoca, an awarded genius girl scientist, has settled on the city-island of Tristia as a home for her workshop. While being interested in the economic revival Tristia, she is just having too much fun with her new ideas and creations. But her creative success has drawn not only the interest of a competing company, but also the ire of a past school rival, who both choose to use the 1st Annual Tristia Golem Competition as a forum to achieve their different goals.

Apparently, this anime appears to be a promotional tie-in to a Japan-only video game to get those sucked into this OAV into buying the PC/ PS2 game. But considering the game was never released here in the US, this anime adaptation is left only to stand on its own and sadly it doesn't do a good job of doing that either that as this title is loaded with a number of cliches and archetypes involving its characters and their antics to pander to the otaku crowd, notably Nanoca and her sometimes clutzy behavior when it comes to making inventions as she seems to always keep positive over any screw-up she causes within this short. The visuals to the OAV are tolerable, but certainly below par for the quality you would expect out of the OAV format. Beyond this, I don't have much else to say. Unless you somehow manage to snag an import of this title's video game source material, you might be better off not wasting your time on this title.

Well worth the (very short) watch, with lots of smart cute girls with heavy mecha toys, and a lot of explosions!!
