    Such richness and depth, into spirits, magic, and not just Japan
    This series is incredible. There is so much going on this world and storyline... it feels every episode is like immersing yourself in Harry Potter in terms of how much detail there is to everything - there are so any storylines you glance at, while following the incredibly immersive main characters...

    I never thought I'd cheer on this relationship so much, and this show - but there is just so ...

    This is a Great Story
    It isn't too often I get pulled in to anime these days. THIS however is a GREAT anime. The art style is kind of hit and miss imo it's odd but not awful like some anime out there.. This anime really does need another season. I need to know more about Elias. I don't think there was any part that really dug deep in to what exactly or who exactly he is and how he ended up the way he is. I keep ...

    Visually gorgeous and original story.
    Beautiful anime about magic, (personal) growth, relationships, self sacrifice and so on. I loved their take on well know mystical/mythological creatures and their original ones were fantastic as well.

    Heartwrenching at times, but very pleasing as well.

    Leans too much into YA tropes for me to get into it.
    Passive protagonist girl with self esteem issues that is whisked away, revealed to be a "special" and is destined to be the bride of a tall ancient powerful man with dark and dangerous exterior.

    I can probably chalk this up to me not being the target audience, but the animation was decent enough, the three episode introductionary thing was decent enough, that I gave the main series 3 episodes ...

    beautiful to watch, hard to leave
    The characters are well developed and the artwork is amazing. Watching AMB has been a magical experience filled with wonder and mystery. While it may sound cornballish to put it that way, its true none the less. it is a very well put together series. Even at the wrap up of the series it leaves you wanting more, not wanting to leave the world that was created in the storyline.
    I've read some of ...

    A Beautiful but Boring Bride
    The anime is in the best way I can describe, pretty good. It's plot is well developed, the character development has a normal flow, and the visuals are nice. I won't deny though this anime can be a bit dull at times. From the first few episodes I didn't feel all too excited. I stayed and watched the entire series, simply because I made it far enough in that I saw no reason to stop. Admittedly, I ...

    Beautiful Series and Good Direction for Anime
    A beautifully written and directed anime. The animation is top notch and I was frequently in awe at the wonderful scenes being portrayed. They perfectly combine animation, music, and character emotion to create memorable moments that hit you in the feels and make you think. The music was wonderful and fit each scene. I consider this a top tier fantasy that focuses on complex characters and ...

    My new favorite anime
    I just have to say that i fell in love with this in Episode 1, the characters, the backgrounds, and the story which is rare for me. The evolving relationship between Elias and Chise in my mind is the best part about this series. I wish i could give it more than 5 stars because i think it deserves a 10 star rating. im also really hoping for a season 2

    The Ancient Magus' Bride is jaw-dropping
    This is a stunningly gorgeous series with beautiful visuals, an amazing soundtrack, and life-like characters. The Ancient Magus' Bride has made me laugh, cry, and fall in love with its dynamic cast and magical world. This is one of my all-time favorite animes and I will recommend it to otakus and non anime fans alike.

    This anime is a treasure.
    I will rarely leave a rating on an episode, or even an entire show. Even more seldom give it 5 stars. But this now marks the first time I have ever left a review. I am absolutely in love with this show. The characters, the story, the animation. All of it I cherished. All of it was beautiful.

    The anime evoked a feeling of "magical" to me. The kind of feeling of when I was a kid and we saw harry ...
