The September issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine revealed on Thursday that Kenji Saitō and Chako Abeno will launch a new manga titled Witch Order in the magazine's next issue on September 7.

The magazine teases the story as a modern fantasy centering on a "master who pierces through justice, and an ill-omened servant."

Abeno previously worked with Saito on the Trinity Seven: Liese Chronicle spinoff manga. Abeno launched the manga in February 2017, and ended it on June 9. Kadokawa published the manga's third compiled volume on July 9.

Saito and Akinari Nao launched the Trinity Seven manga in Monthly Dragon Age magazine in 2011. Kadokawa published the manga's 19th compiled book volume on July 9. The manga has more than 3 million copies in print. The manga has inspired spinoff manga including Trinity Seven: Liese Chronicle, which ended on June 9, and Trinity Seven: Levi Ninden. Misaki Mori launched a new spinoff manga titled Trinity Seven: Seven Days in Monthly Dragon Age on Thursday.

The main Trinity Seven manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released the series with an English dub on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in August 2016.

Crunchyroll also began streaming the Trinity Seven: Eternal Library & Alchemic Girl film in March 2017. The film opened in Japan in February 2017. The manga is inspiring a second anime film.

Abeno previously worked on the manga adaptations of the multimedia project sola, AQUAPLUS' visual novel White Album, and her original series Welcome to Wakaba-soh. Broccoli Books licensed sola for North American release in 2007 and released the first volume before shutting down in 2008. Yen Press acquired the rights to Welcome to Wakaba-soh in 2008 and released both volumes of that series. Abeno also drew the manga adaptation of Gakuto Mikumo's Dantalian no Shoka light novel series.
