Hear The Ancient Magus’ Bride’s New Ending Song in Trailer

The second part of The Ancient Magus’ Bride season two will be here on October 5, and ahead of this a trailer has dropped. It’s the fifth trailer for the second season, and in it we get to hear the new ending theme song titled “fam” being performed by Yuyu.

Yuyu was the winner of label Flying Dog’s Inu-Con 2022 audition last year and has been termed a “low-temperature singer.” This is her first song for an anime.

You don’t hear it in this trailer, but the new opening theme song is called “Nemurasareta Lineage” (translated as “A Quieted Lineage” and performed by JUNNA.

The first half of the second season began in April and concluded in June. This season is all about the “Gakuin” arc (translated as “College”). The anime is being streamed by Crunchyroll everywhere except in Asia, and gave this description for it:

Chise was able to accept Elias and herself, if not necessarily everything about her situation. After Cartaphilus fell back into a slumber that would not last forever, Chise was able to go back to her regular life. Then she receives an invitation from a mutual aid organization for mages called the College.

Under the British Library exists a secret society of mages. Encounters and interactions with people are about to open some new doors.

This is a story about saving yourself to save another.

The anime is being made at Studio Kafka, with Kazuaki Terasawa helming the project as director. The music has been composed by Junichi Matsumoto. Aya Takaha, Yoko Yonaiyama, and Chiaki Nishinaka are all working on the scripts, and the first two have worked in the franchise before. Credit for character design goes to Hirotaka Katō.

The anime is based on a manga series by Kore Yamazaki, which is published in America by Seven Seas Entertainment.
