Fall 2018 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
I already miss the summer. There is something about feeling the sun on your skin and the taste of ice-cream that makes the season a favorite for many.
The OVA Testament of Sister New Devil Departures (Shinmai Maou no Testament) comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD on 28 March 2018. Prior to the home release, the episode will be getting an exclusive 2-week screening in select Japanese cinemas from 27 January. Cinema-goers can get their hands on two different presents depending on which week they visit!
The present handed out during the first week (27 January to 2 February) will be an original B5 portrait of Mio and Yuki. Their shorts have been made of real material! The present during the second week will be a B5 portrait of Mio in a white dress, drawn by Yoshihiro Watanabe that will be distributed from 3 February onwards. It seems as though she isn’t wearing panties?!
Cinema-goers will also have the chance to see the cast of the 4 heroines: Aya Asai (Mio Naruse), Sarah Emi Bridcutt (Yuki Nonaka), Kaori Fukuhara (Maria Naruse), and Iori Nozumi (Kurumi Nonaka). This cast greeting and OVA viewing will only be held in Kadokawa Cinema Shinjuku in Tokyo on 27 and 28 January 2018. Tickets can already be purchased online and directly from the cinema’s counter.

Basara, who sees Mio in unbearable agony, decides to do something in the pool …!? Meanwhile, because of the hero’s restless movement, he gives Yuki and Kurumi a special assignment.
