Ever wonder how Emilia met Puck? Well, that’s the story of the new Re:Zero prequel OVA titled Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Frozen Bonds. The film will be getting a theatrical screening, and the staff have released a new PV, as well as a new key visual:

The PV also previews the anime’s theme song, uki no hate ni kimi no na o by nonoc. It also announces that the OVA will hit theatres in Japan on 8th November. It also teases a few scenes from the anime as well.

But before that 8th November premiere, the anime will be holding a special screening for the OVA on 2nd November. It will happen at the Cinema Grand Sunshine in Ikebukuro, with seiyuu Yusuke Kobayashi (Subaru Natsuki), Rie Takahashi (Emilia), and Yumi Uchiyama (Puck) doing a special live talk show after the screening.

The OVA will serve as a prequel of sorts for the anime. It will take a look back at how Puck and Emilia met, and why Puck would go to great lengths to protect her.
