Do you think that Diana's backstory and the whole Chariot stealing everyones magic was something they had planed all the way back in the first OVA? also would you have preferred if the tv-series had the same tone as the OVA's or been a continuation of the OVA's?
I doubt so, after all the first OVA was especially a project for beginner animators and 4 years ago.
I think Yoh Yoshinari took advantage of the things that we saw in the first and second OVA afterwards(like the magic show).
The concept of 7 Words don’t seem to have existed back then either cause this “Makmir Mikmir Mektoral”(from memory spelled rofl) was none of the Words and replaced the first Word from the LWA TV universe.
Also, the idea of Diana visiting one of Shiny Chariot’s shows was the idea of one of the animators, to add her simply to the audience. And that had 4 years later a completely different impact to the TV series.
Well- i’m glad that they decided to create a new story line in 2017th LWA, because what exactly should they have continued this way, since each OVA was its own story?
