Yeah agree on all accounts. While fun to watch for the characters we know and love, the OVAs felt so flat. Having read the equivalent manga chapters, I don't really know why they chose such a summarized format. They could have made a two-part movie which would have also filled in the gap years between S3 and S4. These two matches were really fun and enjoyable in the manga, especially Nekoma vs Fukurodani, and it's disappointing that they did them such a disservice in animated form.

As a side note/nitpick: Nekoma doesn't have the Japanese character for cat, it's written with the kanji for sound and piece(of shogi)/horse/bridge (of a musical instrument). But the name is homophonous with the word for cat (neko). Likewise, Nohebi is written with the kanji for "door" and "beauty", but it's homophonous with the word for snake (hebi).

Embarassed I meant to use the word "word" instead of character. I can't believe I missed that I wrote the wrong thing.
