I wish it was viable for popular anime to just receive a second season. I don't like OVAs and spin-offs, they really ruin the vibe of the original show.

I probably won't be watching this—I haven't watched the previous one either.


Not sure about you but if the OVA is meant to offer more information about the characters instead of a silly beach or bath-house trip, I don't see how it ruins the vibe of the original show.

The first OVA for Re:Zero hasn't been aired though. It will be released in theaters in Japan on Oct 6th, 2018. This looks good for a potential season 2 announcement, as the OVAs are coming up 2 years after the anime ended.

Normally they are bundled in the dvd/bd discs soon after the anime.


Totally agreeing with you and it really could be a potential announcement for a second season (Especially because I have heard somewhere somehow that there might be a second season)

More ReZero is always good. I really want a S2, but more than that, I want YenPress to get their shit together so they can translate the LN faster!

Fuck the ovas, we need a Sequel. A Movie will be okay

Another anouncement from Re Zero from pre screening... as a RE ZERO FAN its a good news, atleast there will be another episode atleast but i hope after the airing of the 1st OVa- they will announce the most awaiting news- Season 2. Hahaha...that one will be great..

Oh come on. Why not go for 2nd season?

I’m already pumped! Can’t wait for Memory Snow as well as this! Hopefully a second season will be announced soon, but i don’t see that happening before Memory Snow coming out, but there’s always a possibility

I'm in, can't wait for more Emilia. While I wish there was a season 2 announcement, the novels are getting consistently released in America, and I love seeing more of the characters in this series. This is a great concept for an OVA that should be explored. I also think their probably responding to the complaints about Emilia's lack-of-screen-time in the second half a season 1, which is an admirable decision.

Figures are already selling right ? So what's the point.


Why not boii? Same reason why SAO is getting a third season, and same reason why Monogatari got fully animated. Fans don't have to complain.

Good news, hope S2 will follow soon too.

More Re:Zero is always welcome! :-)

Rem:if OVA when? Seriously, when?

Sep 23, 2018 11:31 PM by PenguinInSpace

Hmm, seems like a prequel.
Meeting of Pack and Emilia? Now that's some important stuff. I guess it will also revolve around how Petelgeuse became "NOU GA FURUERU"
Plus, with another OVA the chance of a S2 heightens. The show is sure getting revived again. But that's okay, i love Re:Zero.

I hope we get a season 2 though!
