Volume 9 will be published in Japan on July 09, 2019.
The main staff has been revealed for the new Magimoji Rurumo OAD, including:

Additionally, voice actors Suzuko Mimori and Makoto Takahashi are confirmed to be reprising their roles as main characters Rurumo and Kota Shibaki, respectively.
Magimoji Rurumo: Hōkago no Mahō Chugakusei is the third entry in Wataru Watanabe's Magimoji Rurumo series, and it is serialized in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Sirius manga magazine. Crunchyroll currently streams the 2014 Magimoji Rurumo TV anime adaptation, and describes the story as follows:
A boy named Kota Shibaki, who suddenly gets a bunch of magical tickets one day. Rurumo, a witch that was demoted to an apprentice witch, uses these tickets as training in the human world, and Kota can use these tickets to grant wishes, which are part of Rurumo’s training. However, the catch is that each ticket that is used shortens Kota’s lifespan, so will he help out Rurumo, even at the expense of his own life?
