Waiting In The Summer: Complete Collection w/OVA (2012/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B Sound: A- Extras: C Episodes: B+

One summer, Kaito and his friends decide to make movie. Only thing is there new girl in town ...and she is literally out of his world. As summer heats up, so does the filming, romances, fantasies and love triangles. Ichika, in truth is an alien, after crash landing on Earth is looking for something, but can she afford to fall in love knowing she will have to leave one day?

Kaito is in love with Ichika, Kanna is in love with Katio, Tetsuro is in love with Kanna, Mio is love with Tetsuro. On top of everything Ichika is also an alien, so do the math ...it's complicated. As the summer romances begins, so does the drama and adventure. How does anyone confess their feelings when the person they like is someone else?

In the spirit of Please Teacher! and Please Twins!, it's the continuation of drama of the intergalactic love with a beautiful red headed alien in glasses having a high school forbidden romance. These series are always about break the norms and boundaries. You can only have one 'first love', so it is about making the best of life while you are young.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image across all episodes look good with rich presentations throughout, but they are purposely a little lite, but the Japanese lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo with Pro-Logicish surrounds is very clean, clear and made me wish fir a 5.1 or 7.1 mix. Extras include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.

Episodes include...
