The new key visual art hints at the manga’s College arc for the upcoming anime. Chise and Elias’s presence with those six new students in the art prove that. The art prominently covers a total of six new students from the College. These 6 students represent a secret society of mages underneath the British Library.

On Crunchyroll, the official synopsis of season 2 suggests the story as: “Chise was able to accept Elias and herself, if not necessarily everything about her situation. After Cartaphilus fell back into a slumber that would not last forever, Chise was able to go back to her regular life. Then she receives an invitation from a mutual aid organization for mages called the College. Under the British Library exists a secret society of mages. Encounters and interactions with people are about to open some new doors. This is a story about saving yourself to save another.”
