OVA, an abbreviation of Original Video Animation, is a special episode of an anime that is not aired on television, but is instead released directly in home-video formats (such as DVD or Blue-ray). An OVA often has little or no relation to the plot of the series.[1] The Kuroshitsuji series has seven OVAs. All of the OVAs have been dubbed and released by Funimation in English.[2]
