Why does the release of Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches not include the ova?
Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches is finally going to be released in January. That is 6 months later than it was originally supposed to be released. I don't know why that is.
Anyway, I wonder why the ova is not included in the home video release? I know all 12 TV episodes are included, but why isn't the OVA getting dubbed and released?
@Spaceshotx7 Most likely Funimation wasn't able to secure the license for the OVA.
Few reasons of a company not getting OVAs are as follows.
- They weren't available at the time of licensing.
- The licensor doesn't want the OVAs released outside of Japan.
- The company feels they aren't worth licensing.
@lcdude for a 4th the OVAs were bundled with manga volumes and the rights holder is different frequently the manga publisher themselves who don't deal with licensing.
