After watching the OVA, I interested to watched one of the reference series which is  

Photon : The Idiot Adventure.

The series is short with only 6 episodes with from episodes 1 - 5 are 30 minutes and final episodes is 50 minutes.

I liked it a lot. 

It's liked watching a short movie that was divided to 6 parts.Some question never been answered as who is Photon parents?;How he became the Singularity etc.

Non the less,the show itself really entertaining.As expected from director Kashijima

You can watch the anime HERE

Another anime that caught my interest;  Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari . This 13 episodes' OVA (Original Video Animation) is the spin off of the popular 90's series Tenchi Muyo! created by Masaki Kajishima . It's about Tenchi's half-brother Kenshi Masaki as he finds himself in a foreign world that uses humanoid machines to fight their wars.

The OVA itself is like the reminisce of the 90's anime such as Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure , El Hazard (both produced by AIC studio). The anime balanced between action and comedy with bits of fan service.

There are lots of reference made in it that related to Tenchi Muyo! and Dual such as the character Doll that resemble D (Dual) and Neju Na Melmas (Tenchi Muyo! GXP) ,appearance of Ryo-Ohki's spaceship and the Light-Hawk Wings. Not to mentioned the characters' name is reference to director Kajishima's earlier work, Photon.

Another unusual trait in the OVA is that the run time consist of 45-50 minutes per episode.Its equal to standard 26 episodes.Thus the series doesn't feel too short.

It's definitely a series that for people who missed the good old anime feelings.
