    Not my typical anime genre but close enough
    I'm normally not into the drama or "a slice of life" type of animes which this does resemble in some ways; well this is not those.

    I would say this is a mix of many genre done well. Dark horror themes, magical fantasy themes, romantic themes, slice of life themes, and some high on acid "what the fuck" themes. I love the art style and the story is intriguing. I really want to know more ...

    Interesting presentation, not much substance.
    This show is mesmerizing to look at. However, it is not very engaging to watch.

    I watched the first 3 episodes with very few expectations, which is why I wasn't disappointed, just a little taken aback because it was not at all what I expected to see. After watching the rest, here are my thoughts without going into any detail.

    Be warned! This show is not an action show ...

    This Anime is Stunning in Every Way
    This anime is not exactly in my usual genre, but I was recommended it by a friend, and I had already been leaning towards it from the many previews I had seen. I simply cannot believe how much I enjoy this show. For most shows the pacing in Ancient Magus' Bride would seem too slow, but I could watch the stunning visuals and beautiful soundtrack without any plot progression at all. This show is ...

    A feast for your eyes
    The Ancient Magus' Bride is a gorgeous animation with plenty of depth, charm, and heart that will at times make you both laugh and cry. The pacing of the storytelling is easy to melt into - the characters and their interactions is even more enjoyable.

    Masterpiece - One of my favourites
    This is a awesome show. Great lore and characters, plot development, graphics, and story. I haven't seen anything quite like it before. I can't get enough of this show. There's so much to go on about, but watching it would sum it up better. I would recommend anyone to watch this show.

    A magical tale of love and lore.
    This series is wonderfully illustrated and has a wonderful storyline to back it up. It is a magical slice of life / love story without a lot of the cliche bits that get used over and over in others. If you like magic and lore you will love this show. If you like love stories you will love this show.

    Great story play Magus Bride
    I think that this anime is so creative in a way where it captivates the viewer not by showing us epic scenes but by cohesively playing the story line, where almost as if the writer is leading us through the actual story.

    There is without a question many odd things but they work out so well in the story line you forget they felt odd to begin with, by the time your done your feeling somewhat ...

    A real 5 star anime!
    I don't give 5 stars that often. 5 stars should only be used when an anime makes a notable impact on the viewer. IMO "AMB" will be an example of how anime should be done. Why?
    Makes an emotional impact.
    Characters are done right.
    Art is beautiful and consistent.
    Music is an asset to the presentation.
    Follows source manga very well.

    Since "AMB" is still being published, at vol.8 now, ...

    Beautiful Character Development!
    This is the first anime I've seen where a protagonist (who is also a strong female protagonist!) has depression, and we get to see her healing journey. This anime keeps you on the edge of your seat simply by the characters alone. They are well-rounded and adorable, and I can't wait to see how their relationship develops in the series.
