And yes, it will be a prequel which will follow the first meeting between Emilia and Puck. This new anime will serve as Re:Zero’s second OVA, following the upcoming Memory Snow anime.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know when they will release this new OVA. However, many are expecting more news to drop when the first OVA, Memory Snow, gets its Japanese theatrical screening on 6th October.
