  • Wonderful Anime, I Love to Watch
    This anime holds true to the manga. Its wonderfully written and animated. The story has you care for the characters in the show. I love the fantasy part of the show but what I also like is how the protagonist who appears willing to be completely obedient to Elias turns out to have more willpower then the viewer would believe in episode one and appears to develop a relationship with Elias.

  • Very worth the watch.
    This anime was a very well done emotional, deep piece. The animation, music, and characters are all so beautiful and developed. This anime not only has a wonderful emotional plot, but the action is very thrilling! It's hard not to appreciate it. I would recommend this anime to anyone.

  • A Fantasy Anime, Yes, But a Really Freaking Great One
    This series has three advantages over other like-minded anime. First off is the animation. It's absolutely gorgeous. Secondly are the protagonists, Chise and Elias. They aren't always written well but this series does make a conscious effort to keep things at a certain level of quality.

    The third point and the biggest, in my opinion, is the world-building. Chise learns about the world of magic ...

  • This anime is one for my list, i will definitely re-watch.
    this anime. words don't seem to be enough. the artwork is breathtaking, as is the story. the characters are beautiful, thrilling, emotional, and heart warming. i look forward to seeing what comes next. amazing over all. there were some moments where you have to raise an eyebrow, and you ask yourself "huh?" but it usually comes back around and makes more sense. I Definitely recommend.

  • Love and learning helps you grow
    A beautiful, poetic story of love and understanding, of differences, meeting half way and change. A real roller coaster of emotion, wonderfully animated and compelling until the end. I sincerely hope for more in the future because I loved every minute of this series.

  • The Ancient magus bride, i hope they make more.
    The characters are great and the animation beautiful. I love everything about this anime.

    The faeries are especially interesting.

    It isn't some watered down magical world or some overly violent serie. If you want to see your characters evolve please watch this serie.

    When Titania makes her first entrance... you truly feel like bowing to the Queen of Faeries.

  • Absolutely loved it!
    I'm a big fan of magical realism/faerie fiction in general, and this show did not let me down. Great use of the fae, magick, and all things fantastical without being cheesy or predictable. Reminded me somehow of D Gray Man and Howl's Moving Castle. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Enthralling Show with no answers
    Overall this was a very enjoyable series following the adventures of Chise as she learns her own self worth in the world. The show has a very appealing visual style and is a very unique take on the Mage/Magic genre which seems to be nearly as saturated as the zombie one. The soundtrack is moving at the right times and not overbearing. The characters seem relatively well developed with some ...

  • Beautifully written and portrayed. Would recommend.
    I can't begin to explain how much this anime stuck to me. It was very well written and the characters in the story are all amazingly different. Each unique and easy to get attached to. Very well done. I'd definitely recommend this to my friends. Great for those into fantasy, romance, and slice of life animes.

  • The Ancient Magus' Jail Bait
    This show is great. It has all the right tones and notes needed to fall in with the Studio Ghibli crowd. Whimsical settings, fantastical creatures, and just the right touch of narrative to give the world and fantastical beasts a sense of mystery while retaining our complete interest.
    From a technical aspect this show is executed flawlessly and at times on similar levels as what one could expect ...
