With a second season confirmed to air in 2020, I'm fine with having to wait a bit for the OVA.

I’m totally fine with this.

We’re getting a 25-episode season and most likely a 2nd Season in the near future too, considering the franchise’s huge popularity, so a bit of production issues was due to come. It’s a bit disappointing we haven’t gotten a finalised date, or even the season of the year in which it will air, but hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait.

The pace of the show is accelerating quickly — maybe a little too quickly.
I do hope they take this time to slow things down a bit.
