  • A Beautiful World Was Created
    The story is wonderful and the world created is beautiful. To begin with it somewhat reminded me of Studio Ghibli and after a while it took on it's own style. I don't think the story in the 24 episodes came to a conclusion but apparently the manga is still going so I hope we get to see a season 2 and beyond.

  • A heart grabbing story
    Pros:
    - Beautiful animation
    - Heart wrenching story (in a good way)
    - Has a sort of old style Disney vibe when it comes to "sound/music" while maintaining its uniqueness.
    - Interesting universal take on mythical characters and plotlines
    - Has a fantastic antagonist and side story from his twisted yet somewhat pitiful perspective? (I'll let you draw your own conclusions!)
    - Great protagonist ...

    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 ...

  • What more could I want...
    I love a saucy bit of edginess. I'm a weirdo that likes weird things, like the crazy girls that get in the way of the main couples by getting them arrested or something. So having a young, 16-year-old girl coupled with a monster thing with a skull head, and make it a story of growth, and learning, and love for the two is a dream come true. Yes, queen, this is brilliant.

  • Twisted and wholesome.
    This series was fantastic, really hoping there'll be another season, I didn't expect this at all and stumbled on it by accident, really recommend the watch!

    If you like fantasy settings with romance and dark/twisted elements thrown in, you'll love this.

  • Eh, very anticlimactic
    I kept waiting for something interesting to happen. It keeps you moving on to the next episode with the promise that the next one is going to be when all the action happens... then you watch it and realize you were wrong. The story line is a good, the anime just never got great.

  • A captivating watch that kept
    As a casual watcher I found it amazing how the show kept me hooked. I wasn't able to binge the show like I normally would but I found I kept coming back for a few episodes to see what was happening next. It was also interesting seeing all the folklore, being from the UK there was a lot of folklore I'd never heard of and was really interesting to see utilized in such cool ways.

  • Nicely Illustrated But Too Slow-Paced For Me
    This is my first review and I'm creating it to add a little balance to the otherwise relentlessly positive reviews this series has received. Based on those reviews, I was hoping for something as special as Hunter X Hunter, so perhaps my disappointment is in part due to excessively high expectations.

    This anime is nicely illustrated and certainly not bad but it is slow-paced to the extent that ...
