Yeah, Funimation put this out on DVD too soon. Their “complete collection” is missing these OVAs and the “hyper sexy edition” episodes. I suppose they just wanted to get a cheap release over with.

Fab news, this series is a lot of fun and a perfect example of a short series done right.

Hope we get them, along with the others unreleased, over here at some point.

Wondered why that release felt empty, didn't like the show much either, but hey.

Honestly the OVA's were significantly better than the main series. It's a shame Funi didn't wait for them. Maybe after these new OVA's they'll release a separate collection.

I just didn't really laugh all that much and the characters weren't very likable, especially the whole robbing people's houses episode.

I didn't realize that there was more content that Funimation didn't release. Given how short all of the episodes are, I don't think that there's any question that having more of them would have been an improvement. I certainly hope that they license the rest and release it too. It is pretty much a throwaway series though given its premise and how short it is. I enjoyed it, but it does seem like the sort of thing that would be low on most folks' list of shows to buy.

Though Fan-service shows tend to sell pretty well for Funi, which is why they dub almost all of them these days. So we can never lose hope! The biggest problem the show had was for a fan-service show the service was pretty mediocre. The comedy was hit or miss but I would say the service was a disappointment. Now the OVA's greatly improved on the service side of things. So while not as comedic, it's level of fan-service quality is greatly improved over the original episodes.
