The official website for the anime adaptation of Tite Kubo's Burn the Witch announced a prequel titled Burn the Witch 0.8 on Saturday. The website also revealed returning staff, cast, and a teaser promotional video.

Returning cast reprising their roles includes Asami Tano as Ninny Spangcole, Yuina Yamada as Noel Niihashi, Shinba Tsuchiya as Balgo Ywain Parks, Hiroaki Hirata as Billy Banx Jr., and Rie Hikisaka as Osushi-chan.

Tatsurou Kawano (Burn the Witch) returns to helm the anime at Studio Colorido and team Yamahitsuji.

The prequel adapts Kubo's one-shot manga which was released on the Weekly Shounen Jump magazine in July 2018.

A 4-chapter manga by Kubo serialized in the same magazine from August to September 2020. Shueisha shipped the volume, including the one-shot, in October of the same year. Viz Media licensed the manga in English and published the volume in the same month.

Studio Colorido and team Yamahitsuji produced an anime movie adapting the 4-chapter series in October 2020. Crunchyroll simulcasts the anime with English subtitles and dub.

I kinda wish they made this back when they released burn the witch but it will be nice to have something of Kubo's to watch while we wait on core three.

Yes, if it's anything like the past adaptation, this should be good. I knew it'd be coming eventually but they really took their time, didn't they?

Wow they finally animate the One-Shot, when they should have included it in the movie from the start but anyway love it and super excited to watch this.

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten that the pilot chapter was never adapted.

This is cool and all, but I hope Kubo continues with the manga soon.

I wanted the manga to come back. ;u;

It seems that Kubo is fully enjoying the hype generated by the long-awaited sequel to Bleach. As a sign of respect, I won't even joke about how the idea of ​​a prequel for a spin-off sounds pretty funny.

Should be just a normal episode length release even if they add some stuff to the one-shot (which they are adapting here). They also have a Netflix movie to make, although don't know if it's this Yamahitsuji team or the 1st team.
