Crunchyroll describes the plot of the new OVA as:
Gabriel is an ordinary boy who just moved from London and was bored with his surrounding, until one day, he saw a wisp of purple smoke from the window of his house. At that time, he hurriedly chased the smoke, looking for any kind of freedom and fun. Though they should not, the world of boys and wizards soon intersect… Meanwhile, in the middle of an uncommon regular day, where Elias is helping Chise prepare to head to the college, Spriggan arrives at the mansion on a seemingly creepy horse with a grim message, “the appearance of the ghost hunting corps. this time is very odd”.
The main cast is returning, with Hiromi Igarashi who is voicing Gabriel.
