How “The Ancient Magus’ Bride” Was Born: Talk Session with Author & Editor

Time and Location

From November 18, 2023
Anime NYC at Javits Convention Center (New York, NY)


In this behind-the-scenes talk, Kore Yamazaki, the author of the “The Ancient Magus’ Bride” series, and her editor, Kyohei Shimpuku, walked us through the origins and inspirations for the story. This is a rare opportunity to see the doujinshi (self-published manga) version and sketches of “The Ancient Magus’ Bride” before being published!

They also covered how a manga editor discovers new talent, how manga artists and editors collaborate and how the initial idea was cultivated and then developed to become the worldwide anime hit we have today.

This panel is moderated by Zack Davisson.
