Not including the OVA's in the home release would not have been a deal breaker for me, but I am glad they are being included.

I'm so glad the OVAs are included! OVAs are always a very case-by-case basis for inclusion, and more often than not, never released.

I personally enjoyed the OVA much more than the actual series, so will pick it up more than likely.

I'm glad to see Ancient Magus Bride is finally getting released but I'm not sure why they're splitting it up into sets when all the dub episodes are out.

So glad the OVAs are finally getting released. Now I can see what all the prequel fuss was about.

Funimation always releases episodes in 12-episode sets, regardless of the simuldubbing. They also have to do titling and credits (something other licensors don’t do), fix issues in the simuldub, and wait for the uncut versions of episodes, so it takes some time.

Unless you're referring specifically to the dub, you know that they're all on Crunchy, right?

Well TBH, I only have a Funimation account, so yeah, only dub in AMB's case.
