For the lucky few who can attend the theatrical release of the OVA, you can receive a special novel:
The official website for the Re:Zero anime revealed on Friday that people who attend screenings of Re:Zero Hyōketsu no Kizuna (Frozen Bonds) original video anime (OVA) episode from November 8 to 14 will receive a novel.

I finished the Director's Cut edition. Trying to remember if there was anything new. The only thing new is the creator commenting on Twitter about character actions and motivations, some new insight.
Good news for Crunchyroll users, the OVA will be coming to the platform
Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will begin streaming the Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- The Frozen Bond (Re:Zero Hyōketsu no Kizuna) original video anime (OVA) and the Shadowverse anime in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Taka: MAL has a pretty detailed article going into the changes made for the Director's Cut episodes of Re: Zero. Nothing to get too impressed over though. It's mostly redrawn or slightly extended scenes changed for the series.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for

Dream: It looks like reported coronavirus cases in Japan have stayed fairly stable since the country's state of emergency was lifted. Unless there's a major spike in cases, don't think we have to worry about production delays for this season.

Dream: Currently on the third and last volume to the True Tenchi Muyo light novels, Washu. Got about 40-50 pages left to read of it before I'd say I'm done.

Taka: Nice, that reminds me to finish watching Tenchi Geminar and GXP.

Taka: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).
Jul 2, 2020 2:14:05 GMT
Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.
Jul 2, 2020 2:15:07 GMT
Dream: Done with TTM. See if I can get a review for it up sometime tonight.

almatorran: Good day everyone!

Taka: Happy 4th of July to those who live in the states!
Jul 4, 2020 18:24:21 GMT
Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

El_Directo: I'm just gon say this here. Anyone who hasn't seen god of highschool episode 1 should go check it out now! it fudging hype af!!! This is the era of webtoon/manhwas to make their name and shine.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.
Jul 8, 2020 14:20:06 GMT
Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
