The Ancient Magus’ Bride Anime Showcased in First Promo

Kore Yamazaki’s The Ancient Magus’ Bride manga is making the leap to TV (and Crunchyroll) this October, with Attack on Titan‘s Wit Studio handling animation production. Norihiro Naganuma (Hiyokoi, Yowamushi Pedal movie) directs the series, and you can see some footage in the first official promo below.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

Hatori Chise has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the same again.


The man is a “magus,” a sorcerer of great power, who decides to free Chise from the bonds of captivity. The magus then makes a bold statement: Chise will become his apprentice–and his bride!
