That promotional art just continues to wow me.

Honestly, I hope The Dark Warrior film includes the backstories for Clementine and Khajiit cut from the anime. It really gave me a whole new perspective on their characters.

I can't recall anything else notable these films could add other than more exposition, the penguin scene, and Nabe's conversation with Albedo. It's mostly fluff that might distract more than add to it.

Id personally rather have the distracting fluff rather then just a reskin of the anime that wont be worth watching but maybe thats just me.

Well there was the part of Nigredo the cut out as well as the part involving the magician and guildmaster in volume 3..as well as the part of their journey involving rainbow and how they killed them off.

Which would benefit the series if they added them.

These films use the first two volumes' titles though, so I'm assuming it's only covering the first nine episodes. (which would be about 90 and 110 minutes each respectively)

The English release of volume 3 isn't out yet so I wouldn't know what's missing there.

I forgot to mention...there is the extended dialouge between Albedo and Demiruge as well as Albedo and the Demon Lords...and the Neuroist Painkill torture scene of the captured sunlight scripture. As well as the extended background knowlege on both khajit and Clementine.

Nigredo is definitely necessary as it would be odd to flashback her part in season 2 (why else would they need this movie when the anime is fairly new) rather than introduce her. They should have Shalltear in full armour when Ainz after "that" happens and yes I hope that Guildmaster/Magician Guild meeting is more faithful this time around. I hope they do Brain's fight alittle more justice, wonder if we'll get to see flying vamps in this as the manga did afew sections not in the anime.

Would be nice to have some backstory for the antagonists but who knows what they can fit in this time.
