Hailed as the best harem-isekai to date, Arifureta decided to continue spoiling their fans with more anime content. After a fantastic season 2, the franchise has announced an OVA for this year.
The second season was simply thrilling, hilarious and hair-raising. In a satisfying conclusion, the season ended with Hajime and the group heading to the next Labyrinth accompanied by Shizuka and Kouki.
Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest anime has revealed the first look at the franchise’s new OVA, Maboroshi no Boken to Kiseki no Kaigo (Phantom Adventure and A Miraculous Encounter).
It is set to premiere on September 25, 2022, along with the 13th volume of the light novel.
Although Hajime’s team didn’t suffer any serious losses in the previous season, they had to part ways with Myu. The good news is that the upcoming OVA will feature Myu and the hero of the prequel series, Oscar Orcus.
The trailer teases Hajime with Myu’s biological mother, Remia, as a swarm of ferocious monsters arrive to attack them. As Yue, Tio, Shea, and Kaori prepare for battle, Oscar and Hajime witness something with horrified expressions on their faces.
As revealed on the anime’s official website, the plot will mainly revolve around their stay in the underwater ruins of Melusine, where they meet Oscar. The subplot will be the tearful farewell to Myu for now.
Additionally, the franchise also revealed a key visual for the upcoming OVA featuring Hajime, Oscar, Yue, and Miledi Reisen.

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 voice his character. Hino is also the voice of Kyojuro Rengoku from Demon Slayer and Sai from Naruto Shippuden.
To have such an amazing voice actor for a character means he will have a pivotal role in the OVA, and I can hardly wait for that.
