The official website for Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken announced on Tuesday that a three-part OVA will be bundled with the 14th, 15th, and 16th manga volumes. The volumes will be paired with one episode each of the original trilogy written by Fuse. Volume 14 will be released in Japan on March 27, 2020.

Rimuru has been teaching Shizue's students at Ingracia Kingdom's Freedom Academy. The time has come for the school's annual outdoor training event, where the students will test their combat skills in the field. Rimuru is determined to win the competition and take home the prize money, but he is challenged by Jeff, an honorary teacher who sees Rimuru as a rival. The competition is underway when suddenly an unexpected enemy appears!

A special screening event will be held on January 26, 2020 at Marunouchi Piccadilly to showcase the series' previous two OVAs—bundled with the 12th and upcoming 13th volume—and first episode of the new trilogy. The event will feature introductions and live commentary by Miho Okasaki (Rimuru Tempest), Chikahiro Kobayashi (Ranga), and Azusa Tadokoro (Chloe).

The adventure fantasy series' first OVA was originally scheduled to release with the 11th manga volume in March, but it was delayed until December 4 with the 13th volume. The second OVA was released in July with the 12th volume. The first TV anime season by 8bit premiered in Fall 2018, and a second season is slated for 2020.

The anime series adapts Taiki Kawakami's manga, which is based on the light novel written by Fuse. Funimation licensed the anime in North America and released the first 12 episodes on Blu-ray and DVD on October 1. The second half, containing episodes 13-24, will ship on home video on February 4, 2020.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga in English in 2016 and published the 11th volume on October 15. Yen Press licensed the original light novel in English in 2017 and released the seventh volume on August 21.

More hype for this, please. This sounds like an upcoming second.. oh not yet airing. Hopefully this gets more attention because it's a light story.

Let me guess, none of those Ova's have anything to do with all the material they skipped?
