Covered in ice and snow, Elior Forest is the home to dangerous magical beasts and 50 elves frozen in ice. One day, the great spirit Puck helps a young girl break out of her ice prison. Her name is Emilia, a half-elf born with silver hair, long ears, and amethyst eyes—features that resemble the evil Witch who destroyed half the world long ago.

Shunned by society because of her appearance, Emilia dwells in the forest with Puck as her sole companion and family. Burdened with a sin of destruction she does not remember committing, she spends her days trying to find a way to help her frozen kin. But when the great spirit Melakuera, the Arbitrator of the world, finds Emilia, her right to stay alive is brought into question. Will the bonds of ice she formed with Puck prove to be the warm thread that defies fate?

Story 10/10

The OVA shows Emilia's past with Puck. It showed how Emilia was treated by villagers and how SHE treated them in return. It also showed her daily life, how she earned her livelihood before she was selected as a candidate for Lugunica's queen, her relationship with Puck, her first meeting with Puck, a little about Elior forest (her home), her powers, etc. There are also some decent (but short) fighting scenes involving Emilia and Puck plus some badass Emilia scenes in which she gets really angry. And after the credits, we have a lovely Emilia and Subaru interaction to lighten read more

A story of the time Emilia spent with Puck in her home village.

Overall 7/10:
The backstory of Emilia has been very enlightening. Although we did not get the full story of Melakuera as I've heard from the LN readers, I think his current presentation is pretty solid even if we aren't informed of how he became what he is now. However, there were some pacing issues and overall I enjoyed this less than the Memory Snow OVA.
If you're an EMT fan, I would still recommend to give this a watch!

Story 8/10:
I liked how the story is conveyed by Emilia's repeated actions. It shows her daily read more

In this ova you will start to know the Emilia-character more and this will enlight in a lot of Emilia behavior shown in the season 1 of re zero. However if you are an Emilia Fan, a Rem fan, or yes a Felix fan, You should watch this ova because it will enlight the past that one of the main characters (Emilia) passed trought.
It will fill you with a lot of emotions from cute moments to extremely sadness moments. the fights are also pretty enjoyable but obviously not like a fight genre anime. The sound in my opinion are one of the best parts read more

After season 2 was announced to be delayed until summer, I feel into deep depression. I really love the Re:zero series and I wish we had more content. Fortunately, the new OVA/Movie blu-ray released a few days ago and finally got to watch it, but is it good?

Story 9/10: This ova takes place before Emilia met Subaru and the others. We get to find out more about Emilia and how she lived her daily life away with barely any social interactions from anyone, aside from Puck (and maybe you can count the market guy from the village). The thing is that at the time, everyone read more
