  • A truly beautiful work of art
    This may be the most aesthetically pleasing shows I have seen. To say this show is beautiful is an understatement, it is enchanting. Both the plot and the design enthrall the viewer in a world of magic and wonder. I only wish I had watched this show sooner than I did. Absolutely amazing.

  • Unexpectedly Heartwarming
    This show is about finding renewed purpose in life through shared experiences with new people in a mystical setting, and the evolution of a sketchy relationship into something wonderful. Things can get heavy or dark, but it always finds a silver lining or something to take away.
    Firstly, the show is beautiful and whimsical, yet creepy and unnerving at times. It truly feels like a fairy tale. It's ...

  • So Whimsical and Gorgeous, It'll Feel like You're Watching a Ghibli Film
    First off, this show is BEAUTIFUL! The animation is stunning. It's fulled with so much whimsy that it practically bursts off the screen. The magic and fantasy of the show are also extremely intriguing to learn about with each episode. Not to mention, the delightfully charming, yet flawed characters which make this a MUST WATCH.
    Overall, I highly recommend it to pretty much anyone, especially for ...

  • critique of The Ancient Magus' Bride
    It was a good story, though the transitions are sometimes hard to follow and the ending is more like a clifhanger or another beginning. Side note's aside I liked that the creative effort put into the story and the animation designs are well-done. I would recommend this anime to other anime fans.

  • A really beautiful show
    Ancient Magus Bride has some really beautiful moments in both animation and story telling. Some aspects can start to get a bit repetitive but the characters are all so charming that even the "bad" ones are likeable. If you want some good emotional story this is good option.

  • Fantstic lore and complex characters
    Finally an anime that does make magic out to be some gimmicky thing. This actually follows more around the actual Wiccan and Pagan view of magick and the lore of it. Such as the Lord and Lady of the forest and celebrating Yule. Making the fae creatures far more accurate then Disney renditions. I'm also satisfied with the story and the complexity of the characters. All of them represent different ...
