The TV anime The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Mahoutsukai no Yome), based on the manga by Kore Yamazaki, is celebrating the Fall 2017 broadcast with a fan art event through Mag Garden’s web manga site MAGCOMI. Fans can send their pictures until 31 October 2017.
Yamazaki will choose a winner from all the entries, who will then receive a signed manga volume as well as a gift card usable in any Japanese bookstore. Other participants also have the chance to win gift cards. Some lucky winners will also receive a comment from Yamazaki herself.
Additionally, Magicom are holding a character popularity vote. You can vote for your favorite character and get another chance to win a poster signed by Yamazaki. The voting ends on 30 September 2017. Magicom will also have a countdown until the broadcast with illustrations from authors of Mag Garden.
On 8 September 2017, the 8th volume of The Ancient Magus’ Bride will be released. Besides the regular edition, a special edition will include the last episode of The Ancient Magus’ Bride: Those Awaiting a Star. Those who buy the 8th volume will get an illustration as a present in all participating stores and the Mag Garden online store.
