The Ancient Magus’ Bride anime is based on a manga by Kore Yamazaki. WIT Studio animated the series’ first season in 2017 with 24 episodes. The season was preceded by a three-episode OVA series titled The Ancient Magus’ Bride: Those Awaiting a Star. In 2021, Studio Kafka animated the OAD series titled The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm.
Crunchyroll describes the second season’s plot of The Ancient Magus’ Bride as:
Chise was able to accept Elias and herself, if not necessarily everything about her situation. After Cartaphilus fell back into a slumber that would not last forever, Chise was able to go back to her regular life. Then she receives an invitation from a mutual aid organization for mages called the College. Under the British Library exists a secret society of mages. Encounters and interactions with people are about to open some new doors. This is a story about saving yourself to save another.
