A scan of the front cover of a flyer distributed at AnimeJapan 2015 revealed that the upcoming TV anime series Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu will be getting an OVA. The flyer also mentioned that the anime series, which will start on April 4, will run for a total of 16 episodes.

The series is adapted from Puyo's official spin-off manga of Nagaru Tanigawa's light novel series Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu. Serialized in Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine starting in 2009, the manga series has seven volumes in print.

The story is set in the alternative universe depicted in the anime movie Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu, where the SOS brigade was never formed. In this world, Yuki Nagato, who began developing her feelings for her clubmate Kyon, is a quiet and shy girl rather than an emotionless artificial human.

16 episodes. A rare choice for the episode count. Will be checking this out at least.

spinoffs tend to be more often than not bad

Think manga publishes every month and its SoL so that amount sounds about right. Better properly produced than crammed in a single cour.

Too late. My hopes are already through the roof.

Just saying that it's an unusual choice for a TV anime, not that it is bad. In fact, more anime should've followed this example instead of trying to cram more contents than they should have in a given episodes resulting in a bad adaptation. I can already see Yamada-kun being butchered by a rushed adaptation this Spring.

News like "xy gets ova" are hardly worth mentioning as literally everything gets at least some kind of special...

I'm still waiting for news like "Anime xy doesn't get OVA bundled with a random volume!"

Whoa, I just realized that their eyes look "normal" and not "Clannad-esque" in the poster. This is already exceeding my expectations.

I'm way too excited for this :3
"In the past few months since we met, I've shared many memories with Nagato. Though I've also shared memories with Haruhi, Asahina-san and Koizumi, I found that I've experienced more events with Nagato in particular. In fact, every situation seems to involve her. I might as well mention this, she's probably the only person to cause the bell within me to shake the most vigorously..." ~ Kyon, TMOSH

16 episodes and an OVA? I'm super excited for this. I was wondering how much the anime would cover but with this they could get up to date pretty nicely if they wanted too.

Kadokawa was probably thinking the same thing when they decided to go with Satelight instead of KyoAni this time.

16 episodes and an OVA. Much better than I thought! I may be too excited for this, though. I've gotta calm myself down so I don't disappoint myself.

Didn't Bakamonogatori Have 15? It's kind of like that. FAR better than 13, don't you think?

I CAN'T WAIT. I wish they would do more haruhi, but I guess that's either not going to happen. I guess I could buy the light novels that have been translate into english. I mean, I still get a lot of the initial 'kyon's thoughts from those which pretty much made me love the series. Not so much haruhi.

As I can say, there will be almost no Haruhi. Main characters are Nagato and Kyon. Haruhi is even in another school, so it will be episodic character.
