Story Info

The first story, something like “Barefoot Ginrei” is pretty abysmal and budget restricted. This includes using lots of footage cut out of the OVA series and then spliced into the middle of this. There’s a fair amount of nudity but the story itself is better forgotten. The second episode, “Gin Rei’s Blue Eyes” is much better, actually having a plot, characters and sequence… but is still fairly basic at its heart. This second sample is pretty watchable, and has its moments, but really only hard core Gin Rei fans are going to value this material highly.

There are clear signs of some budget restrictions, most obvious in the first episode. Likewise the style maintains a sort of modern production of older style, or somewhat retro, look and atmosphere. While this is in keeping with the parent series it may be strange for someone unfamiliar with it. This is largely because the short running time, and certain degree of assumed knowledge, may make this somewhat confusing for new viewers. Taken as an independant product I would have to say the animation is nothing special, competent but simple, that does little to fill the voice left by the short running times and basic stories.
