Original Video Animation (or OVD - original DVD animation).

OVA's are episodes produced exclusively for video release, though they usually air on television a few months later. Most anime shows are released for television first (in Japan) and then released on DVD later, but OVA's are the reverse.

OVA's often contain special extra episodes, marketed to fans who may have seen an entire series but are hungry for more.

1. The fulfillment of a performance act (typically dance) so intensely in the moment, that it should not be seen as work or even a ferocious interpretation of steps and/or lyrics. Rather, it is an effortless sharing of an entertainer's truth, without pretension... It should be noted that "ovaness" can only be attained by a full realization of living.

2. A form of high-praise by one's peers in a particular discipline.
1. Most accomplished dancers, some drag queens, and Beyonce.

2. "You were so not lying... I can't breathe. That was OVA. So ovaness!"
