24 30-second shorts to debut on Twitter before shipping on DVD with 9th manga volume

The official Twitter account for Kore Yamazaki‘s The Ancient Magus’ Bride manga revealed on Monday that the manga’s ninth compiled book volume will get a limited edition that will bundle a Maho-Yome short anime. As the upcoming television anime debuts a new episode every week, the Twitter account will also debut a 30-second episode from the Maho-Yome short anime. The manga volume will bundle a DVD that includes 24 Maho-Yome shorts plus footage that is exclusive to the bundle. The volume will ship on March 24.

The television anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and MBS at night on October 7, before later airing on AT-X, TV Aichi, TV Saitama, Chiba TV, Hokkaido Broadcasting, and BS11. Wit Studio presented the first three episodes of the television series at Anime Expo in early July, and Crunchyroll screened the episodes in theaters on July 26. Several theaters in Japan also screened the first three episodes on September 9, alongside the first three anime shorts.

The first episode of The Ancient Magus’ Bride: Those Awaiting a Star (Mahō Tsukai no Yome: Hoshi Matsu Hito) prequel OVA series had a two-week run in eight theaters throughout Japan in August 2016. The episode was later bundled with the sixth compiled volume of Kore Yamazaki‘s original manga series in December. The second part opened in seven Japanese theaters on February 4, and shipped with the seventh manga volume on March 10. The third episode opened in theaters in Japan for a two-week limited screening starting on August 19. The screening event also showed the first episode of the TV anime series. The third part will later shipped with the eighth volume of the manga on September 9. The Blu-ray Disc of the anime will ship this winter. Crunchyroll is streaming all three episodes of the anime.

Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the manga in North American, and shipped the manga’s seventh volume on July 4.
