Ohh more Albedo, Shalltear, and Nabe?

I'm expecting some awesome soundtrack, the anime OP and ED are amazing.

Probably will receive word later down the line whether the story is original or some sort of LN adaptation huh?

Awwwww it's better then nothing though wish it got a sequel instead D: Wonder why OPM is the only anime getting a sequel while Overlord & Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei are getting a movie when both anime were more successful in Japan then OPM was.

Isn't it just a compilation movie? As much as I like Overlord I'd rather watch all the episodes and not miss anything.

While the other 2 averaged 12K per video volume vs. 10K per video volume for OPM, you also have to consider other factors such as the boost to original material sales and overseas licensing.

Also, a movie makes more sense for domestic consumption than it would if overseas licensing revenue were a significant factor.

Well, this can lead up to the announcement. I might be remembering wrong, but I don't remember if there was even a lot content after the anime in the light novels. I remember reading that. So it would be a very similar situation to Trinity Seven.

Also, Denkeki Bunko's event is in October, so we may hear something about Mahouka there. Though personally, I'm praying for Index 3 lol. We got trolled really hard last year, lets hope we hear something again.

Why a compilation? The fuck!
Why not turning the next arc into movie special!? Some things are just not justifyable!
