    The Ancient Magus' Bride: Those Awaiting a Star
    is a three-episode OVA prequel to the manga series The Ancient Magus' Bride. The story follows Chise, a teenage girl, and the frightening, loveless past that led her to be apprenticed--and betrothed--to an inhuman sorcerer named Elias. The OVA is animated by Wit Studio, who you may recognize as the studio responsible for the anime adaptation of Attack on Titan, as well as The Rolling Girls, Seraph of the End, and Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins.

    The first half-hour OVA episode released last week, with the second scheduled to release in March 2017 and the third in September 2017.

    ...At least that gives me time to read the manga? ;__;

    Oof why must the OVAs be released with such a long gap between them? I loved the first one and can't wait for the other two to come out.

    With all that time, I probably will do that as well c:

    A full series has been announced! The Ancient Magus' Bride will premiere this October (just a month after the OVA finishes) and run for 24 episodes! Wit Studio and the previous cast will stay on from the OVA series.
