  • 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 ...

    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 ...

  • just a brilliant story
    The world of The Ancient Magus Bride sucked me in and did not let me go even for a second. I do hope there is a S2 or a movie in the future because I want to see more from this cast of characters in the anime world.

    The emotions that are explored within this series are spot on and in depth, which really sets it apart from other anime. Also, these emotions are explored within such a ...

  • I'm completely hooked with both the story and the art work!!
    A touching story, followed by delicate art work that drew me in.
    couldn't stop watching episode after episode, ended up finishing the season in a day ~

    This story wouldn't disappoint anyone who loves Ghibli nor stories on magic or love.
    The music draws you in with each scene giving out different emotions

  • could not pass up well done story
    I throughly enjoyed this work, I even watched the opening sequences when it came out in the movie theaters and was not disappointed. Took me far too long to write a review but i'm still so moved about this anime, from the 1st half OP/ED to the transition of the second half, it unfolded with lots of creative twists and turns. Chise and Elias were wonderful plays off of each other as characters who ...

  • Creative and Beautiful Anime
    I don't know if I care for the story much or the bride but one thing is true, its that this anime is beautiful with character design, setting, and structure. I watched every episode several times not because I care about what actually goes on but because of the beautiful universe that was created and put into a concert that was something new and refreshing. I loved every episode.

  • Came into this with 0 expectations and finished with a series I'd watch repeatedly
    Overall, the entirety of the series is well paced and beautifully animated. While the show does have some silly/funny moments they don't interfere with the more intensely emotional scene. The series tackled difficult negative emotions without feeling the need to shy away from them or suddenly make a joke to prevent the audience from feeling the full range and strength of an emotional scene; and ...
