OVA aka Original Video Animation are direct-to-video movies, shorts or episodes of anime. Some OVAs are spin offs, continuations or re-imaginings of pre-existing material, while others are adaptations of manga or in some rare cases, tokusatsu. The term OVA is often misused in western fandom to describe any Japanese media that has a direct-to-video release. Live-action Tokusatsu direct-to-video releases are called OVTs (Original Video Tokusatsu), V-Cinemas or Hyper Battle Videos.
Examples of OVAs:
- Kamen Rider SD
- Gakuen Tokusou Hikaruion
- Imagin Anime
