Ever since the first season ended in 2018, fans have been demanding The Ancient Magus Bride Season 2. They really enjoy watching the magical and gorgeous world that the show gives its audiences. Will Wit Studio green light a sequel to the successful season? It has already been two years since the show ended. Forums are filled with questions by fans asking about when the second season will come. So, here’s everything we know so far.
The Ancient Magus Bride Season 2 Story
The story focuses on a 15-year-old girl named Chise Hatori. Chise is just done with life. In this moment of weakness, she agrees to be sold off to a tall masked gentleman. He essentially buys her life for five million pounds. The man is Elias Ainsworth, a magus. He decides to make her his student and his bride.
But make no mistake, this is no fairy tale. The fairies are not nice and the other mythical creatures can’t be trusted. The story for the second season would most likely continue from the remaining source material which was recently published. We will discuss that in The Ancient Magus Bride Season 2.
The Source Material
When the show first started, there was not enough source material for a second season. The show is adapted from the manga called ‘Mahoutsukai no Yome’. It has also been translated into English, hence the English name. However, in the two years after it ended, more content has been created. The first season covered the first nine volumes of the manga. As of now, there are a total of 14 volumes of the manga. The limited edition of Volume 14 came out in September. So, there is enough source material now for The Ancient Magus Bride Season 2. It can cover the remaining five books. Of course, this would lead to a much shorter season than the first (24 episodes), it will still be something.
Where To Watch?
The current season of the show can be viewed on Netflix, Crunchyroll, and Funimation. The first season was licensed by Funimation. So, when The Ancient Magus Bride Season 2 does come out, we can expect it on there first. Afterward, we can expect it to roll out to other platforms for viewers to watch online.
The Ancient Magus Bride Season 2 Release Date
There is no official release date yet. As a result of the success of the first season, this is surprising for a lot of fans. However, fans shouldn’t worry too much. This is because gaps between seasons are quite common in the industry. Shows like One Punch Man and Log Horizon took ages to come back but they did.
