The Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair premiered the third promotional video for the anime adaptation of Wookjakga’s Korean webcomic, “A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special” (known as “Kikansha no Mahō wa Tokubetsu Desu” in Japanese) on Saturday.
This video not only unveils but also provides a sneak peek at the ending theme song, “6 o Naderu” (titled “Stroke the 6”), performed by the talented singer Momosumomosu.
Yen Press is the publisher responsible for bringing this series to an English-speaking audience, and they encapsulate the narrative as follows:
In an era where the Shadow World has asserted dominance, leading to the decimation of most of humanity, a group of six valiant heroes embarks on a mission to save the world—a mission that ultimately ends in failure.
However, Desir Herman, a skilled magician, is granted a remarkable opportunity when he awakens to find himself transported back in time by thirteen years! Now, the responsibility rests upon his shoulders to reunite his party and avert the impending catastrophe that could spell the gravest disaster in human history!
