The official YouTube channel for KADOKAWA released a promo video Sunday that revealed Re:Zero (Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu) to be getting a new anime OVA episode. The video shows Subaru, Rem, and Ram making something in the kitchen, and when Emilia asks what it is Rem says they’re making an OVA.
White Fox, the animators of the 25-episode anime series that aired in 2016, are returning; along with all of the original voice actors to work on this upcoming episode. The OVA will likely cover a side-story that happened in the original web novel, that would appear somewhere around where episode ten or eleven are in the anime. Known as the “Mayonnaise” chapter(s), where the trio are to make mayonnaise under the direction of Subaru.
Tappei Nagatsuki began publishing Re:Zero in 2012, which has since seen 14 official novels, a manga adaptation, and a 25-episode anime series that aired in 2016. Both the novels and manga are being published in English by Yen Press, while the anime is available for streaming legally on Crunchyroll.
