Ikoku Meiro no Croisee Specials

 
During my previous Croisee post, i had been unaware of the various OVAs bundled with the Blu-ray releases. there's enough to make its own anime season, though in episode count, not in running time. the OVAs are a series of shorts following the characters in various scenarios and "picture dramas", still shots set to dialogue and music telling a bonus tale. all of them are as sweet and lighthearted as the main series.
 
Little Red Riding Yune.
 
there are two kinds of specials here: the picture dramas and the shorts. the early shorts deal with bonus content like the picture dramas, but as time wears on with them they eventually devolve into little more than an advertisement for the series. charming as it all is, using the characters and specials as an advertising tactic is decidely not cute.
 
No Yune, don't eat those!!
 
the soundtrack here borrows mostly from the series, with one or two exclusive tracks, including one where Yune sings a little tune. most of the time the specials only deal with Yune and Alice, though a few introduce other characters, including Alice's sister Camille. the specials cover all sorts of random topics, from introducing Claude to Japanese Culture to a Cooking Lesson with Yune. a great accompaniment to a cute series, even with the blatant advertising.
 
Reminds me of Tasogare Otome x Amnesia's Kitty Ears. >w<
 
3/5
