I can't say for sure whether this Ova will play after the anime or in between. In any case, they do not contribute to the main plot.

The story mostly tells events from Chise's past and one of her greatest experiences at the time, which wasn't that bad at all, I found this relatively interesting. The atmosphere was also right here.

In contrast to the anime series, it was again made clear how great the danger is of seeing the shadows of the magic world ...
