With the apparent popularity of the ongoing 3-part prequel OVA, Wit Studio recently announced that they will be producing a new TV series adapting Kore Yamazaki’s original manga. Crunchyroll got in on the announcement by stating that they have the rights to simulcast the new TV series and that, not only will it premiere this October, but that it is being produced as a 2-cour anime. Crunchyroll jumping on the streaming rights for The Ancient Magus’ Bride TV anime makes sense as they already had been releasing the OVA series on their site as new episodes were released in Japan.
Kore Yamazaki’s fantasy manga has been a great deal of fun for me to read and Seven Seas Entertainment has been doing a good job translating and bringing over the manga stateside. I’m really looking forward to the TV adaptation and it seems my anticipation for it will be well-founded based on the job that Wit Studio has done so far with the OVA series. I’ll update later in the year on this story when a PV for the new series has been released.
