TL;DR Review

The first OVA, “The Shinya Nakamura Incident” released back on May 6, 2016, covers the first Japanese’s Ajin, Shinya Nakamura. There was an incident that was referenced in the first season and this OVA expanded on it further.

The second OVA called “Hidden Inn / Secret Den” is a collection of four humorous short stories, released on October 7, 2016. These stories flesh out the TV series a bit, like where did all those human organs come from. There is also an out of character fanservice scene in this OVA, if you consider seeing bare 3D arms and legs as fanservice.

The last OVA was released on April 7, 2017, and is called “Satou: Zero”. Taking place immediately after the prologue scene from Episode 1, Satou’s background is explored.

The animation is on par with the TV show. The music was re-used, using both opening and ending themes from both TV seasons.

Overall, I do like these OVAs. They are not thrown away filler episode as most OVA tend to be. These act more like extra features found on DVD/Bluray. I like the first and third OVA more than the second, but they are all good and recommended. These OVAs contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences.
