Release Date: TBA





Most OVA’s are released bundled with either a video game, special edition Manga or Blu-ray of the respective series.


As such most do not see cinema releases.


However, there are exceptions, for example, the Re: Zero OVA saw a cinema release in 2018 where it made $1,725,339 (USD). Today this would be roughly ¥191,064,040.86
