Oh look. Another OVA that really should be in the main series and not an extra. Thanks JC Staff.

I don't understand why is getting another OVA since the third season was pretty bad as adaptation but oh well. Since the anime have its problems in sales, it really surprises me that JC Staff still making more adaptations and even some extra stuff like this OVA, with obvious plot as Erina with fanservice. She's the most popular character in the manga so maybe her popularity is enough to still beting for the anime?

Ship? You mean Megumi and her cooking? Unless you don't, there are only two romance ships in SnS as far as I saw after watching the anime for three seasons. Soma X Nikumi and Soma X the-girl-from-his-hometown-I-forgot-her-name. Megumi is more like a close friend and Erina is a formidable rival if anything to Soma. You are considering baseless romantic developments with Soma here.

I would watch it if it was about megumi


Sorry, but that won't happen. Megumi will be demoted to a side character like many of your favourites. Unless you are posting in a wrong thread thinking it's a Saekano news thread.

yeah i know ... poor megumi T_T

Any news if Risa Taneda would be back to voice Erina?


Probably not, it is more than likely that Hisako Kanemoto is, regretably, here to stay from here on out.

Wow, this series sure is getting a lot of consecutive installments lately. Although I'm happy, Im disappointed by how each season looks shittier than the past(animation/art consistency)
