A nice OVA. This feels like we really need a second season: Ueno thought he was doing Tsubaki a favor by setting him up with Urabe. Of course he was helping but now we need a followup on it. Namely Ueno asking Tsubaki how it went after him and Oka suddenly went missing. We didn't get to see that part. Also Tsubaki still hasn't kissed Urabe. What would happen then to both of them?
One thing was a bit puzzling: we get the two ghosts...did we really need that part? Could it have been done with something else. A bit too far fetched.
For me the OVA is a 7 out of 10.
those are some reasons why I'm kinda disappointed with this summer festival episode expecting Tsubaki to kiss Urabe finally in such romantic atmosphere, but no it didnt happen again -.- in a new OVA maybe we get a better conclusion or just more body fluid fetishes like the kitsune guy drinking tears instead of drool... I wish to be wrong but I doubt there will be another season after reading a 'see you' graffiti in the last seconds ¬¬ I have seen something similar in other series, which didn't continue besides the manga so as mentioned in my previous post I waited for something better but in average my final score is 5/10

Let the kids take their time as far as that fated kiss goes...it will come all in good time. The creator of this wonderful series has his reasons for such and if those who are harping about it read what he thinks...well, you can cool your jets a bit.
I read this in one of the MAL forums on the OVA. I post it here for those of you who care to read it:
As for the people who are disappointed that the relationship has not progressed more physically, he talked about the reason that he placed the age of the characters in the 16/17 year-old age range. He said something to the effect of:
If you tell a story about two middle school students who are attracted to each other and end up spending the night together, your assumption is that they would not have sex, if the same story were told about college age students, you would assume they would. High school is the middle ground where you don't really know what will happen. They are legally old enough*, but inexperienced, so they may or may not.
[* In Japan, and most US States, but not all...]
That age group holds a great wealth of narrative possibilities. I think that is part of the reason that so many romance stories are set at that age. In that same author's note section, he talked about how he thinks that modern youth are too quick to enter into physically intimate relationships and this story is about the wonders of the pre-sexual relationship and the joys and sorrows the emotional roller-coaster (my word, not his) that such relationships put you on provide. From that point of view, once the relationship reaches a point of physical intimacy, the mystery is gone and the story over! It is a story about the journey, not the destination.
That says it plain and clear and makes perfect sense to me.
A great piece of trivia: The characters that were "possessed by fox spirits" were the main couple from Ueshiba-sensei's earlier manga Discommunication, Matsubue Takaomi and Togawa Arika.
In my humble opinion I thought those two mysterious characters were great. They added a wonderful spooky atmosphere to the festival and that little "abandoned shack" next to the Shrine. They were playful and delightful and also, on the brink of falling in love. The Mangaka wanted to pay them tribute by adding them into the OVA.
