The new OVA will be two parts and focus on the Zeno arc. While I'm very excited for this, it does worry me about how a second season will come out as Zeno's arc is integral to the flow of the whole of the Kai arc while the last OVA was more standalone. What are some thoughts?

The fact, that it'll come before season 2 can be a problem for rising tension in Kai empire arc, because the audience will know that Zeno's going to be okay. But that's like all. The Happy Hungry bunch won't know, so it won't affect the chronology (well .. if the studio won't do something funny ofc.)
Zeno's story was an arc and wasn't integral in a sense that it can't be told rn, it wasn' t in fragments here and there, so it won't affect anything + he didn't tell Happy Hungry bunch anything, because he was dreaming about it (or smth like that.)
We can be happy without too much worries :)

OMG, that's a great news! Do you know when the OVA will come out? Do you know if season 2 is confirmed?

I think it's nice Zeno's arc but to be honest, I would love to see Jae Ha's arc more or even better, Hak's ;).

You have a good point. Hopefully, those who watched season 1 loved it so much they decided to read the manga. :)

A lot of them didn't, I know as I asked :D. But a fair lot (including me) did, Anyway, I can see that cutting the story when Zeno comes, without showing his powers looked kinda cut-off. He was the only dragon whose abilities remained a mystery, even though we knew them immediately with others. It was really weird.
Also, I wonder what is going to happen once TAAF results are officially out :D maybe they'll change it to S2 (crosses fingers).

I never thought that Zeno's full arc (his backstory, really) should be a part of the main season anyway, so this works for me on that level. Unfortunately, I don't know how this would be done without spoiling and if their nonchalance about spoilers means that there's no chance of a season 2 . I guess it's only really spoiling to international audiences and anime-only watchers because Japanese fans already have the manga.

Idk there are definitely scenes that I would still like to see animated. I guess we can only hope.

Here's to hoping with the OVA there will also be S2.

IF there would be a season 2 for the anime series, I think the producers/scriptwriters for the show will find a way to get around that. It reminds me of how the first 2-part OVA of Noragami was done. In case everyone else is not watching/reading the manga, the OVA contained the concluding part of the succeeding arc before the second season was even announced.

It's good that they adapted Zeno's story in an OVA but I would've preferred the second season to come out first and that everything stayed in its chronological order as in the manga, and thus it won't affect the flaw of the story if a second season were to be made (which I so hope they do already :( )
And though I'm very happy about the OVA news but it worries me a lot that by this they mean that they won't be making any second season T_T (hopefully it's not the case)! :unsure:

Wow, that's great to hear! I've been hoping for a continuation of the anime for ages. It does give me cause for worry that a season 2 won't come on -- but on the other hand, why even bother with an OVA if they don't plan to build up on it?

Maybe one reason is as a marketing tool to build up hype for a season 2 announcement?

One can wish...

The newest OVA came out and it has more Zeno and explores his relationship with Kaya (sobs) and then there is a nice bonus of the extra "Sleep tight tonight" which provides a lovely much needed dose of fluff. You can watch both these on YouTube but so far there is no English sub for either.

Unfortunately as of today it appears that both Zeno OVAs have been taken off of You Tube. I'll post if any new ones are uploaded, but it appears that they are getting taken down pretty quickly after being uploaded &#128533;

It looks like there's a group watch of a subbed copy of the Zeno OVA planned for February 4th and 11th. =O
