The Ancient Magus' Bridge has been forgotten by some, but the gorgeous Wit Studio series still thrives with fans. As you can imagine, the haunting fantasy still catches attention to this day, and many have asked if the anime will ever return. As it seems, the answer is likely yes as a new rumor is circulating about a new anime project.
The update comes from content creators online like SugoiLITE who keep their ears to the ground. It was there fans were informed of a possible comeback as The Ancient Magus' Bride is said to be developing a "new anime project along with [a] new OVA series."
You can imagine the kind of excitement this rumor has spun with fans. While no official word is out on the report, fans are still feeling optimistic about its chances. After all, the anime's first season did well with fans, and it ended back in March 2018. As for the show's first OVA run, it concluded in 2017, so there is precedence for this rumor.
As for what the anime project is, fans are left to guess. The series could continue its take on the manga, but there could be another idea in the works. So for now, fans can only wait and see what The Ancient Magus' Bride has in store for them.
If you want to know more about the series, you can read its official synopsis down below:
"Hatori Chise has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise's life will never be the same again. The man is a "magus,"a sorcerer of great power, who decides to free Chise from the bonds of captivity. The magus then makes a bold statement: Chise will become his apprentice--and his bride!"
