Kadokawa began streaming a promotional video on Saturday for Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Memory Snow, the first OVA episode in the Re:Zero franchise. The video previews nonoc's image song "Relive."

The episode opened in Japanese theaters on October 6, and features a returning cast and staff. The OVA ranked at #8 at the Japanese box office during its opening weekend.

The story of the OVA takes place after [Spoilers, highlight to read.]Subaru and friends defeat the Demon Beast Wolgarm, the source of the curse, and save the children of Irlam village. The characters finally get a moment of peace, and Subaru goes on a certain secret mission that he must not let anyone find out about. However, even though Subaru is wearing a disguise, Petra and other children of the village immediately figure out who he is. Now that his mission was exposed within five seconds of it starting, what will happen with Subaru's "date course" with Emilia?

The franchise is also inspiring a second OVA titled "Hyōketsu no Kizuna" (Frozen Bonds), which 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.

Tappei Nagatsuki launched the original novel on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2012. Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in English, and is also releasing Daichi Matsuse's manga adaptation of the series, as well as the Re:Zero Ex spinoff light novel series.

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.
