You mean the extra footage is separate from the footage aired on TV? I would have thought they mixed in the footage and it is not that straightforward to tell how many extra minutes of new footage is added until you actually time it....

You mean the raw might come out of the actual ep. that include TV airing of ep.1 and the uploader just took that new part out? That makes sense. (I thought that why there's no OP but there's full ver. of ED when I saw it)

But you said "I might be late at noticing this, but it looks like this BD and DVD is Vol.1 because TV airing ver. of ep.1 is also included." which implies you thought it is vol1 because the TV ep.1 is included. My point is that even without the TV ep.1 it seems they are ready to call it vol.1 just because it has the extended ep.1.

I first thought OVA is separate, then when I saw first ep. I learned that OVA is extend ver. of ep.1, then I saw the official site that both OVA and ep.1 are included. "I didn't even think that after learning that OVA is extended ver. of ep. 1 would be included in the same volume as the actual TV airing ep.1 "is what I try to explain.

There raw came out for few hours and it seems like it is 16 mins. instead of 40 mins. So weird.

Yeah, two weeks ago hpulley and I talked about this and confirmed the OVA will be an extended first episode and subsequently the OVA is named as vol.1 of IS2

I actually know about it as extended first ep. when TV ver. of first ep. aired, but didn't know that both of them would be included together in the same volume.

I've only watched very few OVAs even if I liked the whole series...I don't like those OVA which are only full of fan service...But I still might try this one somehow...

Cool, looking at the PV, this is definitely a fan-service OVA. Too bad it is only for 10 mins though.
Kinda confused here.
Is the OVA 40-mins long, or the disc will be 40-mins long with 30-mins of other video contents leaving only 10-mins for the OVA?
What does my initial post say? ThangLong himself is confused but you shouldn't. ;-)

More Infinite Stratos content is a plus in my book.

Looking forward to the second season along with the OVA.
