There’s officially more Burn the Witch anime on the way! As revealed after episode 23 of the Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War anime, the prologue chapter #0.8 of Tite Kubo’s Burn the Witch manga is getting an anime adaptation.
The new adaptation will see the cast and staff of the 2020 Burn the Witch anime film returning, including director Tatsuro Kawano at team Yamahitsuji and Studio Colorido. Asami Tano and Yuina Yamada lead the cast once again in their respective roles as Ninny Spangcole and Noel Niihashi.
Check out a teaser for the adaptation:
Crunchyroll streamed the previous Burn the Witch anime and describes it like so:
Historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons.
Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. Even then, only a selected few become qualified enough as witches or wizards to make direct contact with them.
The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind (WB), an organization for dragon conservation and management. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.
