The Ancient Magus’ Bride Shares Trailer For Next Cours

ancient magus' bride

The first cours for The Ancient Magus’ Bride season two has just concluded, and the anime has already released a teaser video for the next cours. We can expect more episodes later this year, starting on October 5.

The second season is all about the manga’s “Gakuin” (translated as “College”) arc. It’s being made at Studio Kafka, with Kazuaki Terasawa helming the project as director. Terasawa was also the director of the OAD The Ancient Magus’ Bride – The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm. The scripts are being written by Aya Takaha, Yoko Yonaiyama (who wrote The Ancient Magus’ Bride – The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm) as well as Chiaki Nishinaka. The music is being composed by Junichi Matsumoto, and the task of character design is being done by Hirotaka Katō.

The same Japanese cast will be back for the next cours: Atsumi Tanezaki plays Chise, Ryōta Takeuchi plays Elias Ainsworth, Kouki Uchiyama plays Ruth, and Aya Endo plays Silky.

The fan favorite franchise started out as a manga series (known as Mahō Tsukai no Yome in Japanese) created by Kore Yamazaki. It — and other books related to it — are published in English thanks to Seven Seas Entertainment.

The second season is being streamed by Crunchyroll everywhere except for Asia, and it gave this description for the story:

“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.”
