The Argento Soma OVA story mainly revolves around Sue from Funeral. It contains flashback while she struggles to escape from falling into a crevasse.
The animation is on par with the TV series, which isn’t a good thing. The animation was stiff and the use of still images is more noticeable here. Colors again are dull and dark.
The OVA reused the haunting opening song “Silent Wind” by Eri Sugai, which maybe it’s only saving grace. The ending theme is slightly modified with dialogs and Sue humming the theme. It’s cool that they try something different, just wish it was better executed.
I would not recommend watching the Argento Soma OVA unless you are already a fan of the series. Even still, the OVA is rather dull and we can see why it was cut from the TV show. The OVA contains some graphic violence and mild suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
