The OVA special of the series was created separately and released on April 21, 2005 in Japan and in 2006 by ADV Films. Chronologically its event occur between episodes 10 and 11, thus it is referred to as episode 10.5. It is much more comical and light-hearted than the main series, with far less blood and violence, although it does contain the fanservice present in the rest of the series. However, the lengthy flashbacks to Lucy's past, while not as bloody as in some episodes of the normal series, still have a dark and somber tone. The OVA explains some of the history between Lucy and Kurama (specifically how he was able to capture her alive), and why she never kills him when she sees him, in a flashback while Lucy is unconscious, although the plot of the main series can be understood without viewing the OVA. It was not released with the ADV series box set in 2006, nor was it dubbed into English at that time.
