The official website for the upcoming three-episode OAD project inspired by Kore Yamazaki's fantasy manga series Mahou Tsukai no Yome/The Ancient Magus' Bride today posted a main visual and a 70-second trailer for its first part. The OAD is based on the manga author's original story "Hoshi Matsu Hito" (The Person Who is Waiting for Stars), and each episode will be respectively bundled with the manga's 6th volume (September 10, 2016 release), 7th (March 10, 2017), and 8th (September 9, 2017).
The first part tells a prequel story about what happened to the protagonist Chise Hatori when she was 8 years old, long before she meets Elias Ainsworthis. It is also scheduled to get theatrical screenings for a limited time of two weeks from August 13.
