    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 ...

    Everything I need in my life right now!
    I love this anime!
    It has action, drama, romance and little bit of humor as well! Every Saturday I am waiting for the new episode to be downloaded here! I think the episodes are a pit too short and the cliffhanger game at the end of every episode is STRONG!

    A Refreshing watch after years of waiting.
    What do you do when you wish to give all of it up, but find yourself too empty to do so? You turn numb, find someone to give you direction. Tell you what to do, how to dress, how to live, so the motions that are so empty to you do not matter anymore. And thus, how Chise's world brilliantly changed.

    Giving herself over to the hands of slavers, purchased without care at an auction, her buyer ...

    This show is impeccable
    I don't think I've ever seen a series start with such a 'could they, should they' premise, but good god, has it been beautiful. The first episode is a lot of 'what ifs' regarding Chise's character, but it quickly blooms into this beautifully romantic theme that is so simultaneously ethereal and yet profoundly human. I LOVE the presentation of magic here, as it's clearly making a serious effort to ...

    Best show of the season
    Animation, writing, music. Everything about this show is top-tier.
    I can't remember the last time I saw a show this good.
    And if you like fantasy stories about magic, this show takes a very original and intelligent approach to it. They try to ground it with careful bits of logic and explanation. Unlike most anime where it just kind of exists, and people do things "because magic".

    This Anime Is A Work Of Art
    Extremely original story and captivating art style. Each episode pulls you in closer with a relatable internal struggle while not being so depressing as to leave you in the dark. You always get a somewhat magical, uplifting thought, or a sense of realization after each episode. 10/10 Keep Making This Please!
