If all goes to plan and, yes, sometimes there’s always an unplanned series or feature-length, the last episode of the third season of The Ancient Magus’ Bride will be the last ever.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride: The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm is streaming on Crunchyroll. If you want to skip to the end and see how it all might end up, the final episode is being previewed in the latest trailer.
How could they even squeeze in a third season? Here’s what Crunchyroll says about the Knight of the Blue Storm.
Just prior to Chise becoming a part-time student, during Cartaphilus’ brief nap… Chise receives an invitation to the academy, and she, with the help of Elias and the others, begins preparing. One such busy day, a spriggan arrives at their home on a strange horse, bringing news that “something is wrong with this Wild Hunt.” Gabriel, an ordinary boy who’d just moved from London, was bored. Of his situation, of being parted from his friends, of unfamiliar land. Of everything. He was staring through his window, as if to escape from it all, when he caught a glimpse of tobacco smoke. When he ran outside to chase it, the impossible happened: his world began to intertwine with the veiled world of the mages.
These three episodes of the OAD are part of limited editions of the manga shipping with issues 16, 17 and 18.
The manga is written by Kore Yamazaki, who also scribes the anime. There’s a brand new animation studio, though, in the shape of Studio Kafka, which was created just for this project.
