“The Ancient Magus’ Bride” Returning With New Anime

Time to get swept up by the Elias/Chise romance all over again! The Ancient Magus Bride returns to our screens September 10th.

According to the manga’s official website, we can expect an original anime disc (OAD) concerning the release. The site dubs the feature a “witch daughter-in-law” original animation trilogy. So, expect it to be in 3 parts!

The OAD will be included with the limited editions of the 16th, 17th, and 18th volumes of the manga.

The OAD’s lengthy title reads Mahō Tsukai no Yome: Nishi no Shōnen to Seiran no Kishi (The Ancient Magus’ Bride: The Boy From the West and the Knight of the Mountain Haze). Modern anime titles love making us read, don’t they?

The Ancient Magus’ Bride received widespread acclaim for its visual presentation as well as story-telling. As of writing, it holds a near-perfect score on Crunchyroll and an 8/10 cumulative score on My Anime List.

Will you be tuning in on September 10th? Which character are you most excited about seeing again? Sound off below!

“The Devil is a Part-Timer!” Returning With Second Season

It’s official! After nearly 8 years, The Devil is a Part-Timer! will return with a second season. It certainly took them long enough. Sheesh!

This includes the main Japanese cast, though if you’re like me you watched the dub on Netflix. No word yet on the English cast returning.

The announcement came yesterday at the “Kadokawa Light Novel Expo” event.

Check out the cast list:

For those needing a refresher after the nearly-decade long wait, the synopsis reads:

“After being soundly thrashed by the hero Emilia, the Devil King and his general beat a hasty retreat to a parallel universe… only to land plop in the middle of bustling, modern-day Tokyo!

Lacking the magic necessary to return home, the two are forced to assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution.

And to make ends meet, Satan finds gainful employment at a nearby fast food joint! With his devilish mind set on working his way up the management food chain, what will become of his thirst for conquest?!”
