The official website of Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 revealed a brand new trailer for its upcoming cour 2 on Aug 24, 2023.
The trailer previews new opening theme song, “Nerasareta Lineage,” performed by JUNNA.
Moreover, JUNNA has provided her comment regarding her involvement in the second cour of season 2, which can be read below:
“I am honored to be entrusted with the opening theme for the second cour of ‘The Ancient Magus’ Bride Season 2,’ following my involvement in the first cour. As the story of Mahoyome (The Ancient Magus’ Bride) continues to unfold, the difficulty level of the music itself has increased. Recording it, I felt challenged and almost overwhelmed. However, I naturally thought about how Chise would face this situation and how she would confront it. With that mindset, I sang ‘Nerasareta Lineage.’ It’s a thrilling yet warm song, and I hope you can enjoy it along with the anime.“
Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 cour 2 will start airing on Oct 5, 2023.
Cour 1 of the second season aired on April 6, 2023, in Japan.
