As revealed on the anime’s official website, the plot will mainly revolve around their time in the underwater ruins of Melusine, where they encounter Oscar. The sub-plot will be the tearful goodbye to Myu for the time being.

Since there are so many prequel characters reappearing in the OVA, the franchise decided to introduce another one. Naiz Gruen will make his anime debut in the upcoming OVA, and Satoshi Hino will be voicing his character. Hino is also the voice of Kyojuro Rengoku from Demon Slayer and Sai from Naruto Shippuden.

Having such an amazing voice actor for a character means that he will have a crucial role in the OVA, and I can barely wait for it anymore.
