    It stands for 'original video animation.' Here's a wiki page for it :)

    I've seen plenty of OVAs for anime recently. Since when are they going out of style?

    As much as I'd like a Pocket Monsters Special anime, what influence does Media Factory or Viz Media have on Japanese animation studios?

    Last I checked, Meda Factory was involved with the Hetalia Anime and some Pokemon merchendise. If a good Anime like that was made by them, then PokeSpe might be in good hands, depending on who's in charge. And should they go through with an Anime Adaptation (SHOULD THEY being the key words), I also hope Viz Media does the English dub.

    Should the make OVAs, the trouble is that the story might get compressed like with Viz's "Best Ofs." I'm sure we don't want that.

    I can't think of any that are less than five years old. Can you give any examples of a recent direct-to-video series?

    Not that it really matters one way or the other since DVDs are so ridiculously expensive in Japan that a company would have to be insane to expect young kids to be able to afford them.

    There's the last Tales of Symphonia OVA coming out in the future.

    But yeah, kids wouldn't be able to afford it, especially if it were to come out on Blu-ray.

    But doesn't TPCi hold the rights to everything Pokemon anime-related? So wouldn't they have to be the ones to produce the dub?

    If there's ever a pokespe anime, I'm definitely gonna watch it - Red, Silver, Ruby and all others appear with their personalities, and none of them are like stupid kiddy Ash

    Well, it should be both Viz and TPCi doing the dub. I dunno.

    Considering how the poll got over 6,000 voters and only just over 100 voted for Pokémon Adventures, which got it into third place, doesn't really strike me as that impressive. There were probably an awful lot of series' that only got 1 or 2 votes, which shows how divided opinions must be on the subject.

    As a boring guy living in England, even I've noticed a decline in them. The majority of OVAs I've heard about recently are either spin-offs for huge properties like Fairy Tail and given out with Limited Edition manga volumes or released as part of super-premium priced boxsets. I couldn't count the amount of OVAs I've heard of in the last few months on one hand xD.

    Hell, when I think of the last OVAs I watched, I end up going back to late '09-early '10 with the 4-part Shakugan no Shana S...wow, that was long ago =3.

    I would watch a pokespe anime but only the first arc. Other than that, I'm not really for a pokespe anime.


    WOW TRANSFORMERS IS A DUMB SERIES LOL. GT GROW THE FUCK UP.

    Gundam Unicorn...Gundam's primarily a kid series, although it does have a lot of adult fans, probably more so than Pokemon...

    I don't understand the crazy obsession with having a Special anime, nor the weird idea that it'd have to be seriously edited to be suitable to be aired on television lol.

    I've always wanted to read Special, but few people actually know it here, even fans, and I can't find it anywhere. If it was made into an anime, my chances of actually seeing it would be far higher. And perhaps it would reduce the number of idiots who think Red is an Ash rip-off when it's actually the other way around.
