  • Great from beginning to end
    This is a hard story to characterize, but by the end, it came down to two individuals having faith in each other and finding love. The trials, tribulations, and adventures it took to get there were fascinating. The visual aspects of each episode were outstanding. The mystical aspects of many of the characters and their life philosophies were spiritually uplifting. I will no doubt watch this again.

  • Leans too much into YA tropes for me to get into it.
    Passive protagonist girl with self esteem issues that is whisked away, revealed to be a "special" and is destined to be the bride of a tall ancient powerful man with dark and dangerous exterior.

    I can probably chalk this up to me not being the target audience, but the animation was decent enough, the three episode introductionary thing was decent enough, that I gave the main series 3 episodes ...

  • Was not disappointed
    It took me some time to start this anime after hearing about it from someone on YouTube. It has that Beauty and The Beast vibe in the sense that the human girl stays with and develops feelings for the beast, who then grows fond of her as well. The magic aspect of the anime was cool and the bond between them isn't creepy despite the age gap. I'm glad I gave it a go and I wish to see another season ...

  • The heart can only take so much
    This series was so good that I had my sister watch it. She's more of a shounen fan while I'm shoujo but even she fell in love with this series. It has the right amount of humor and darkness that it doesn't come off morbid. Mild fan service which is rare in today's anime. Animation was beautifully done, kept to the manga, voice actors were perfectly suited for their roles, and add the fact that the ...

  • Absolutely in love with this Anime.
    Do not be fooled. The Ancient Magus Bride will sweep you off your feet and take you back to when you were younger. This show really gave me back my sense of imagination. Every episode made me want more and waiting each week just to see what happens next. They did a amazing job of capturing my attention and keeping it. Many shows that take you to another world might grab your attention but end up ...

  • One of the More Creative Animes I've Seen
    I really didn't know what I was getting into with this show. I knew very little about it going in and the idea of a young woman falling in love with some skeletal creature (based on the poster) seemed very odd. Nevertheless, based on a friend's recommendation I pushed through it and by the end of the 24 episodes, it became an anime which I'm very glad to have experienced.

    The main protagonist ...

  • Really beautiful anime
    (I'm not the person to give out the most analytical reviews and usually these are just my opinions. But I'll try.)

    An anime about relationships, self-examination and magic&fiction.

    Visually this anime is very beautiful. The backrounds are nice and character designs are all uniqueand nice. Expecially Elias's design. Animation was a bit "stiff" (not so many frames perhaps..?) at some points ...

  • the ancient magus bride
    i saw some clips on youtube and i began to become curious about this anime. it was getting popular in some of my circle of friends so i became even more curious until i finally decided to watch it—and i had no regrets.

    i enjoyed it a lot. it was a rollercoaster and it was overwhelming. it's honestly an interesting anime and it's so well-put. i felt all kinds of emotions. i was in distress, then ...
