    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

  • One of the most Beautiful and Engaging stories ever told
    For starters, this anime is just the beginning. This is a prequel series for the currently running manga and the anime by the same name, the anime of which comes out this October!
    The characters, the creatures, the story, the world all come together as you watch this prequel series, read the manga, and await the full anime. I don't want to spoil any of it for you, so I will just say this. If you ...

  • a magical adaptation
    The magus bride anime captures the magic from the manga very well in both sound and animation style, it seems a great deal of time has been put into this show and im looking forward to see how Chises adventure will go.

    the first episode follows the manga very precisely almost scene for scene, which imo is a great decision.

    so if you are looking for a great story and animation which might ...

    It borrows a lot of ideas, but it reimagines them in a very good way.
    First of all; this anime relies upon you to have an open-mind and to be able to think about things in different perspectives, and I personally appreciate that greatly.

    If you want an anime where you don't want to think, and you just want to watch, then this anime might not be for you.

    Some of the subjects it tackles are; slavery, pedophilia, social awareness, genocide, the disregard of ...

  • Excellent and beautiful.
    Amazing animation, beautiufl themes and story telling. Classic fantasy and folk tales, well spun into a mordern setting. Characters are well designed and I really love the mix of old and new elements of magic and high fantasy whilst still making feel warm and friendly. Highly recommend.

    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.

    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 ...
