The second OAD is set to be released in Japan on March 10
With the first OAD of the three-part The Ancient Magus’ Bride side-story anime series released this past September in Japan–and scheduled to be released in December here on Crunchyroll–, the franchise is looking ahead to the second part with a brand new trailer released today.
The original animation DVD (OAD)'s, with the name of The Ancient Magus' Bride -The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm, are based on a new story by manga creator Kore Yamazaki, with Studio Kafka taking over the production of The Ancient Magus’ Bride from WIT Studio. Kazuaki Terasawa (Overlord II and III episode director) sits in the director’s chair, with Aya Takaha returning to write the scripts from TV anime alongside newcomer Yoko Yonaiyama (Umamusume: Pretty Derby), and Hirotaka Kato returning to do the character designs.
The first part of The Ancient Magus' Bride -The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm was released in Japan in September and is scheduled to stream on Crunchyroll in December. The second part releases in Japan with the 17th manga volume on March 10, 2022, while the third OAD comes out with the 18th manga volume. The TV anime series and first OAD series are available to watch here on Crunchyroll!
