posted on by Jennifer Sherman

The official website for the Re:Zero anime revealed on Thursday that the planned theatrical screenings of the second original video anime (OVA) episode for the franchise are slated to debut this fall. The website also revealed a teaser visual for the OVA.

The episode will be titled "Hyōketsu no Kizuna" (Frozen Bonds), and will adapt the meeting between Emilia and Pack. The original Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Zenjitsu-tan: Hyōketsu no Kizuna prequel novel was included with the first Blu-ray Disc home video release of the television anime series in Japan.

The first OVA episode in the franchise, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Memory Snow, opened in Japanese theaters on October 6 at #8. The episode featured a returning cast and staff.

The 25-episode Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- anime adaptation premiered in April 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Crunchyroll is also streaming both the Re:Zero ~Starting Break Time From Zero~ and Re:PETIT ~Starting Life in Another World from PETIT~ short anime spinoff series. Funimation released the television anime on home video with an English dub on June 19.
