A trailer has been released for the final part of The Ancient Magus' Bride: The Boy from the West and the Knight of the Blue Storm. The finale to this 3-part original animation DVD (OAD) will be included in the special edition of the manga's 18th volume. Volume 18 goes on sale in Japan on Sept. 9, 2022.

Parts 1 and 2 of the OAD were included in the special editions of the manga for volumes 16 and 17, respectively. Unlike the TV anime which was animated by Wit Studio, this 3-part OAD is animated by Studio Kafka.
