Prior to the anime TV series for October, Ancient Magus Bride itself already has its own OVA consisting of 3 parts. The first part will be release on September 10, 2016 and the last part will be released this month, exactly September 9, 2017. The OVA title is: Mahoutsukai no Yome, Hoshi Matsu Hito .
The OVA of the anime plays the prequel of the series that will air in the fall of 2017. The focus of the story is the little Chise who has not met Elias yet. In his OVA is also shown more clearly why Chise decided to do the thing that makes to meet with Elias.
The studio that produces the OVA is the same as its TV series, the Wit studio. The staffs are the same. There are Norihiro Naganuma ( Yowamushi Pedal Movie ) as the director, and Shouji Hata in the field of sound and music, for example. This OVA itself, according to the author is a pretty good expansion, because it tells the story of Chise which in its own comic version is only discussed in short pieces.
The story in this story is about Elias who "buys" Chise and lives with him. In his daily life with the Magus, Chise can freely talk about what he sees-from the fairies to the kings of the elves. Unlike a childhood where everyone would find it strange because of its advantages.
To convey the story well, of course also needed a voice actor that fits every character plays. So far, the leaked voices are as follows:
- Atsumi Tanezaki (Igarashi Kyoko in iDOLM @ STER Cinderella Girls ) as Chise Hattori
- Ryota Takeuchi (Wakatoshi Usujima in Haikyuu !! ) as Elias
- Uchiyama Kouki (Yuri in Yuri !! On Ice ) as Ruth, familiar from Chise
- Endo Aya (Sheryl Nome in Macross F ) as Silky
The author has to say that Ancient Magus Bride is one of the anime next season that the author is very much waiting for his presence. In addition to its comfy atmosphere, the story presented in this title is also interesting. The most remembered is about the love between a Succubus and the old fathers.
Today, his own manga is in the critical arc . Not yet known whether the manga will end with the animenya or not. To be sure, if you are just like a writer who is no longer patient, starting next month we will be able to watch the anime adaptation Ancient Magus Bride which will have 24 episodes.
