    I love this series!!
    I can't come up with the words for this show. It has a lot of potential, and I hope it can reach it and go beyond. I love the background story of Chise, it has mystery, and a dark theme to it. The art style is great too, especially with Elias. Please let this continue, I can imagine what it might become. I imagine it's going to be the next Sword Art Online or Attack on Titian, hopefully you get ...

    It is wonderful... but...
    Ok, I'm revising my review after some digging around on the Internet. This is supposed to be a three-part prequel to what will be a full series to be released in October 2017.

    So that should explain the 6 month interval between releases. It would be helpful if it was titled 'The Ancient Magus' Bride (Prequel)' or something like that.

    In any case, if this is just a prequel, I then I can't ...

    Watch The Prequels First
    Episode five just released and I've just finished watching it so now I think its about time I make a review. First thing's first the prequel's are amazing they hooked you in to watching the show before its released. It's new. It's Bold. Buts it's also special. The prequels are the most story progression that happens so far, It's Special because it doesn't feel like anything that has been made ...

    This anime is amazing!
    Unique, beautiful and a well-developed storyline. I love it so much and I have only watched 3 episodes and the 3 part OVA. Her tragic childhood is presented in a subtle way, where you learn about her past through her reactions to the present. The animation and the storyline is woven together so perfectly that the breathtaking sadness and beauty gives you a truly unique series.

    Such an amazing series!
    I really love this show; I think it is incredibly ambitious,and feels like a passion project. I'm particularly in love with the fact that the series is not afraid to go dark at times, making it rich. Elias' character development is particularly special, and Chise is a fantastically strong female character! I think the world they have built is wonderfully detailed and full of magic. While it isn't ...

    My opinion of 'The Ancient Magus' Bride'
    I love this its got great sound design, music, visuals and story that immerses you in the world.

    The sound design is amazing it gives a scene of scale and makes you feel the surroundings. It really gives a scene of what environment you are meant to be experiencing and properly gives the visuals a sense of being very real.

    The music gives the idea of a mythical setting, scene of wonder and ...

The music, the art style, the plot, the characters, the rich history that draws inspiration from real myths and folklore...everything is just perfectly harmonized to create a truly wonderful story that makes us dream for more. A must watch for all fantasy lovers.

    The character development is delicious to witness as well. The main ...

    Currently my favourite
    Currently my favourite anime. Love the story and the characters. Chise is such a lovable character, and I love how the anime delves into old British myths and tales of magic. The actual anime/graphics itself is beautiful too. Definitely one to watch.

    Absolutely incredible!
    The first anime that's made me cry in a while, the last was hunter x hunter. It's definitely my all time favourite OVA series, and probably my most favourite anime when it comes out. The art style is beautiful, the story telling is beautiful, the music is beautiful, everything about it is beautiful! it reminds me of my neighbour totoro or spirited away.

    Incredibly beautiful!
    I've been reading the manga for a while and it has captivated me, so of course I was very curious to see how this anime is turning out.

    Well.. It is absolutely incredibly beautiful!

    The anime is not following the manga to the letter but that really isn't an issue because it is done very well, for as far as I can tell after watching 2 episodes.
    It begins with a short peep in Chise's ...
