The Ancient Magus’ Bride (魔法使いの嫁) is a Japanese fantasy shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Kore Yamazaki. A three-part prequel anime is being produced by Wit Studio, and an anime television series adaptation will begin airing in October 2017. Hatori Chise is only 16, but she has lost far more than most. With neither family nor hope, it seems all doors are closed to her. But, a chance encounter began to turn the rusted wheels of fate. In her darkest hour, a mysterious magus appears before Chitose, offering a chance she couldn’t turn down. This magus who seems closer to demon than human, will he bring her the light she desperately seeks, or drown her in ever deeper shadows?
