With some questions left unanswered after the first season, fans were reassured by both trailers that the second installment would provide the answers they seek. In this article, we delve into everything you need to know about The Ancient Magus’ Bride’s second season.
The inaugural trailer premiered on January 12, 2023, announcing the anime’s return on April 6, 2023. Consequently, the show will be part of this year’s summer-spring anime lineup. The second trailer, released on February 9, only solidified the release date, leaving fans eager for the premiere.
The first season was broadcast on Mainichi Broadcasting System, Tokyo MX, BS11, and other Japanese channels, and is now available for streaming on Funimation for newcomers and those wishing to rewatch the series.
Excitingly, the second season will be accessible on a wider range of platforms, including Netflix, Voot, Hotstar, and Jio Cinema. Additional streaming platforms may be added in the future, but for now, these are the primary options.
The official synopsis of The Ancient Magus’ Bride tells the story of Hatori Chise, who is disillusioned with her life and seeks to escape it, just as her family did. She understands why her father and younger brother ran away together, and why her mother ultimately committed suicide in front of her.
Chise ends up at a distant relative’s house, where she is labeled a problem child and sinks further into depression. Desperate for a fresh start, she decides to sell herself into slavery. Her new home is with the enigmatic magus, Elias Ainsworth, a towering humanoid with an animal skull in place of a human head.
Elias invests five million pounds in Chise, hoping to gain a unique apprentice. Together, they travel the world, with Chise seeking a cure for her situation while uncovering more about her abilities and the world her family tried to escape.
The enthusiasm for the second season is palpable, and fans’ excitement is justified considering the time elapsed since the conclusion of the first season. As the plot develops further, the second season is expected to soar to even greater heights of popularity.
