Magus-Bride.jp Domain Registered Under Mag Garden's Name
posted on by Egan Loo
The domain name 'Magus-Bride.jp' was registered under the name of the publisher Mag Garden on December 28. Mag Garden publishes Kore Yamazaki's supernatural manga The Ancient Magus' Bride (Mahō Tsukai no Yome) in Japan.
Seven Seas publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Chise Hatori 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!
Yamazaki launched the manga in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine in 2013, but the magazine ceased publication on September 1, 2014. The Ancient Magus' Bride moved to the publisher's Monthly Comic Garden magazine and is also published on the Comic Blade online website. Mag Garden will publish the fifth compiled volume on March 10, and Seven Seas will publish the fourth volume in April.
