Everything in OVA 2 and AW happened before the ending scene in episode 7.
Still doesn't explain events post-'Alternative World' into episode 1/7 of OAV 1.
I probably shouldn't jump in here, as I've only seen OVA 1 as of this post, but I'll risk it. If I'm understanding the question correctly, and the fact that apparently OVA 2 events actually take place before events of OVA 1, isn't a causality loop, by definition, "closed"?
Meaning there's not a "beginning" or "end" in a strict linear sense, but rather, due to each event
being a catalyst for the other, and in turn itself, time in this context is cyclical?
I don't know, i saw it as being neverending, thus "closed" as EH uses a predestination approach to time and history. I also kind of thought
by the ending of OVA1, but I could be way off; I need to keep watching to get a fuller picture.
