Even after dying countless times, Subaru finally ended the threat of the White Whale and defeated the Witch Cult's Sin Archbishop representing sloth, Petelgeuse Romaneeconti. But only shortly after overcoming a tragic ending and reuniting with his beloved Emilia, Subaru learns that Rem has been erased from this world, having fallen victim to the White Whale's Fog of Elimination in the midst of Subaru's death loop. With the White Whale now gone, Subaru and Emilia are forced to confront a reality they never dreamed would happen. (Source: Crunchyroll)
As a web novel reader I know a fact that revolves around Emilia’s past and her fears in season 2 but I dropped arc4/season 2 story in half,so I’m not sure if Subaru gets her past unveiled or not but it was spoken to him by someone that I won’t spoil for you.
But the truth is that the statements that Subaru gets from that certain someone is going to be featured in the ova releasing this year in Nov or Dec(I’m sorry I don’t know the exact date).
But you could see how the rezero anime is being featured again and again by snow memory movie,now currently airing isekai quartet and than ova in fall of this year.
It makes sense as the ova retells us about the past of Emilia and it’s super important as Emilia has a big role in season 2(sry rem fans).
And the studio is trying to make Emilia more appealing to the fans as most fans(including myself) hated Emilia for her klutz behavior and they might not like the fact that rem has only 1 episode worth content as far as I know.
So they are making Emilia a kind hearted and a pity character through ova as you can see in the trailer(she’s crying)
So I assume the fans would remember the ova and will be waiting for season 2 with a great hype. So it could be either,summer of 2020, winter of 2020 and the longest would be summer 2021.
There’s no way they would wait another 3 years after dropping ova to release season 2.
Ova is nothing more than a hype train as it’s indirectly connected to the season 2.
There would be a trial in which Emilia has to relive her past , present and future.
Halfway through web novel arc 4 and it’s still stucked at the 1 trial and she’s failing to accept her past and that ova is telling us about the past.
If you guys have seen nanatsu no taizai season 2,than you would be aware of the trial and re:zero features it way more beautifully and steadily than nanatsu.
You won’t get bored to see that scene as before watching the anime I had already read the web novel.
And you guys know that I started to like kabaneri if you had watched attack on titans.original is original after all and not that nanatsu isn’t original but the fact that it was so fast track and nothing emotional at all was my biggest complaint about it.I expect a lot from this new Airing Anime of re:zero
