because OVA is a silly way of saying episode
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

because Ova is a word in the english dictionary but OVA is an abbreviation

"ova" as in, "u n me r ova"?

Kansai-ben is the main reason why Nabeshima is one of my favorite Medaka Box characters.

And the fact she's a judoka.

Maybe I should finish Medaka Box.

Watch "Stop!! Hibari-Kun!"

1983 trap anime.

I expected nothing less, James.

MAL says no subs, so maybe I'll watch the raws.

Pani Poni Dash, even though I haven't seen it.

I do plan on it, though.

Ah, I've been meaning to watch this one.

But you have OVA episodes, too. It just indicates an anime is direct-to-video. Or DVD and Blu-ray nowadays.

What, are there just not enough channels to broadcast on in Japan?

No, no, OVAs are like B-movies.

Yeah I'm reading the Wiki page.
I've yet to come to the bit where it says why one would seed out these things.

OVAs may have episodes but they aren't part of the main series.

But dood there are plenty of OVA-exclusive series.

Far fewer than there were in the '80s and '90s, though.

Like completely original. Not even side stories of prior IP.

OVA's are usually shipped with volumes of the manga, as an extra for readers of the manga, they aren't usually intended as part o the anime series, though often later they will be bundled with the full DVD release of the anime (anime is released in volumes prior to the full release)

ONA's are what you're thinking of hydra that's when full series are just released online rather than aired on TV, the reasoning usually being.. actually i dont ****ing know, but it gives the studios a bit more freedom because they dont need to stick to airing scheduals

what it boils down to though as a filthy gaijin who does nothing but illegaly download things is .. nothing, don't even bother getting educated, most of them time them things will be tagged as episode 0 or 7.5 or some shit anyway so you know when they "fit in", or if not then it's a complete offshoot and probably awful and should be ignored anyway

there's, like, commas and everything
edit: ah, that's better

That's the case nowadays, yeah. But that's only been in the last handful of years, though.

And of course all hentai anime is in the OVA format.

No, it's just a way of saying 'non-tv-episode'. Both OVA and TV episodes are still episodes of a series unless they're stand alone, since that entails the definition of a series.

The AT is a curse. Soap lets leave this place. For some reason posting here has a direct correlation with us losing girlfriends. It's some freaky paranormal highschool shite but with forums and threads instead.

Connie broke up with me again but this time for good. If you want to see my dick, tomorrow evening would be a good time. I'm not going to be this depressed or drunk again for a while. Now is not good, I look like shit and I'm intent on getting wasted from here until May so I can drink through the anniversary month and forget it ever happened.

Sometimes you can just tell when it's for good you know? And this time it's definitely for real. Like really really for real. Like I even called her afterwards and we do our standard after break up thing and this time it was different. Like I didn't force her hand ror anyhthing and we weren't fighting or anything. It was just like for good this is over.
