In the wake of Ren Amamiya's apparent suicide, the other members of the Phantom Thieves are heartbroken and without purpose. As Sae Niijima rushes over to Cafe Leblanc, she brings the team a shocking revelation that spurs them to pull off one more spectacular heist. The hardened warriors of the metaverse make one last attempt to prove to the world that they fight for justice, and to bring down their teammate turned traitor, Gorou Akechi. Watch them closely, or they might just steal your heart.

I hate that MAL updated this to include both OVAs because it means I need to delete my review and rewrite it. Anyway, thank you for upvoting my previous review to the top spot and I appreciate every single person that takes their time to read what I write.
