The official website for the three-part 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 60-second full trailer for the upcoming second part. It will get a two-week theatrical run from February 4, 2017, then will be bundled with the special edition of the manga’s 7th volume to be released on March 10.
The OAD series is based on the manga author’s original episode “Hoshi Matsu Hito/Those Awaiting a Star,” telling a prequel story about what happened to the protagonist Chise Hatori when she was 8 years old, long before she meets Elias Ainsworthis. The OAD’s last third part will be included in the special edition of the manga’s 8th volume that will be available on September 9, 2017.
The first part, The Ancient Magus’ Bride: Those Awaiting a Star Part 1, is now available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.
