This OVA was included in the “owaranai natsu” (endless summer/never-ending summer) fan disc that was released in December 2012. I hadn’t planned on doing these extra fan discs when I started the project, but when kokujin-kun came to the project team with the DVD ISO and a translated script, we just couldn’t say no, so a big thanks to kokujin-kun for making this happen!
This OVA takes place around the end of S1. It’s been a while since they’ve been to a Maji Burger, so all of Seirin gets together to sit down, have a meal, and, as Riko puts it, have a talk “about a bunch of off-the-cuff, stupid, random crap!” It provides a nice little recap of season 1 and serves as a bookend to that season.
We would’ve loved to have been able to offer you this in Blu-Ray, but this fan disc was only released as a DVD, so unfortunately this is all we’re going to get.
We are working on the extras that were included with this fan disc as well, and we will be releasing them after we finish up with the music videos they included with it. The extras include creditless OP/EDs for season 1, all of the end card screens that were shown at the end of broadcast version of the show, and music videos with original songs for Kuroko, Kagami, Hyuga, Kise, Aomine, Midorima, and Takao.
Anyway, wrapping things up, I hope you all enjoyed our burst of activity over the holidays. From the Touou game, to the rise and fall of Shigeharu Honda, a stop off in Hell, the baseball girls showing you what they were made of, a baby popping in to say “Hi!”, and the captain making an appearance himself, it was a fun ride. It’s Wednesday, January 6th now, and I’m sure the majority of you have had to get back to work. Did you have a nice little break?
As for myself, you probably won’t be hearing from me too much in January. This release spree featured a lot of scripts that I had completed months before December (ie. Kuroko, Major, and Hells… I don’t work on the other shows that were released), so it was mostly just cleaning out my proverbial closet of scripts. I’ll probably be taking a week off as I’ve pretty much been subbing daily since November to make sure we could get you a full 13 Days. After that, it’s back to the grind as we have the rest of Kuroko Season 2 to bring you (and I have to start translating more Major too :P).
In some other good news, the first 2 volumes of season 3 arrived in the mail a week or so ago for me, so whenever season 2 finishes up, expect us to start releasing season 3 a little more closer to the end of season 2 than we did with season 2 after we finished season 1. At the same time, we just have the first 2 volumes of season 3 right now, so if you see the BDMV’s for the rest of the season show up anywhere, please let us know so we can grab them and save ourselves a bunch of cash.
