Twin Engine streamed the full trailer for the second volume in The Ancient Magus’ Bride -The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm (Mahō Tsukai no Yome: Nishi no Shōnen to Seiran no Kishi), the new original anime disc (OAD) project for Kore Yamazaki‘s The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Mahō Tsukai no Yome) manga, on Tuesday.
The three-episode OAD project is being bundled with the limited editions of the manga’s 16th, 17th, and 18th volumes. The 16th volume shipped on September 10. The 17th volume will ship on March 10, 2022, and the 18th volume will ship on September 10, 2022. Crunchyroll is streaming the project in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
The staff describes the OAD series as the “first part” of the new anime project.
Yamazaki herself pens the story of the series, which is set some time before Chise enrolls in The College. The story begins with Spriggan visiting Chise and Elias’ home, bringing news of a strange new Wild Hunt. Another part of the story will focus on Gabriel, a boy who has tired of parting with friends and living in an unfamiliar land and circumstances. He will part the veil that hides him from the world of magic.
Kazuaki Terasawa (Anonymous Noise episode director) is directing the anime at Studio Kafka, a new animation studio established specifically for the OAD project. Aya Takaha returns from the television anime to pen the script alongside Yoko Yonaiyama (Uma Musume Pretty Derby episode scriptwriter). Hirotaka Katō returns as character designer from the previous anime, and Junichi Matsumoto also returns to compose the music.
