    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.

    Absolutely brilliant
    The Ancient Magus' Bride is a visual treat but that's not all there is to it. It's the most engaging new anime I've seen in a long while and bonus because I can actually watch it with my son (he's nearly 10), unlike a lot of shows that just aren't suitable.

    It's the story of Chise, a teen girl who was abandoned when her mother committed suicide. She has always been able to see things that ...

    I had a hard time getting into it but once I did I loved it. Great show...
    I had a hard time getting into it because I found it creepy how kept mentioning he owned her. Seemed like a forced love. But as the show progresses, so do their relationships. The show is a masterpiece. The sound track is heartwarming. Beautiful animations and story lines.

    A Show That Scratches A Jaded Fan's Itch
    I've never been moved to write a review of a show before, but I can't help but do so with this one. Somehow, this show managed to precisely scratch that indescribable itch that made me fall in love with anime in the first place. On a surface level, this show contains some of the most fantastic visuals out there; and most of them don't even rely on a fight scene. On an analytical level, the show's ...

    Easily one of the best anime I've seen in a long while.
    I've never spent the time to write a review, but this show really compels me to. I see some folks talking about their issues with the show (age difference, Chise's seeming lack of understanding basic concepts, etc), but I think the show addresses them and allows the two MCs to really grow and advance as people. In terms of character growth, I would compare this to Parasyte, as you have a nonhuman ...

    Its a beautiful show that draws you in!
    Magus' Bride is a really beautiful show and it is worth watching. It isn't for those that want a lot of action, because you get it in small doses. It is instead a beautiful show that has a so much emotion in it. I enjoyed watching this because it brings together a lot of fairy tales and shows them in a new light. You learn about the main characters slowly and it builds up nicely. At times it can ...

    Stop reading reviews and watch this anime already!!
    You just need to stop reading these review and watch this amazing show. But personally you should watch the three part OVA first to get more back story in the main character. Even tho it gives away a few plot points that aren't really big spoilers the story you get is far greater then the spoilers you get from it. But over all this is one of the best anime that has came out this season and you ...

    Best Anime To End 2017!!!!
    This anime is absolutely stunning!! The characters fit into place with this anime perfectly. First of all Chise isn't useless, she's actually portrays a beautiful story throughout this anime, showing that even though someone can feel broken inside, they can have the capability to pick themselves back up again and fight. I highly recommend this anime, the art style is gorgeous and the story line is ...

    Great Anime, Beautiful Choices
    This anime is beautiful. A good choice in color and unlike any other magical anime, this one is special. Magic isn't everything, it must be learned and has to be born with. Like Chise, she is a Sleigh Beggy which means she holds lots of magical power. Also the setting is England and all the stories so far ties in with folk lore in Europe. Very Beautiful Anime and recommended to anyone who is tired ...

    Great and true adaptation of the manga
    Love the manga and love the anime. The OVA confused the heck outta me I didn't realize what it was until researching after. But after the OVA I started watching the episodes and I was blown away I have fallen in love with this so much each episode leaves you begging for more. I went after the manga after there was nothing more to watch and its just as beautiful they did a wonderful job adapting ...
