  • Redemption and great art work.
    The art is well done, story well explained and powerful. I know some aspects of the main plot line might throw people off but it’s still worth watching. Magic is not dead in this world. I await to see if the grand experiment to save her works out in the future.

  • 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!

  • Really, Really good stuff
    We've been really blessed with some excellent fantasy shows this season, and this anime is continuing the trend. The art style and direction is excellent and the sound design is equally so. The show gives off the same sort of soulful melancholic vibe that I got from watching Made In Abyss. Easily one of the must watch animes of both this season and this year.

  • Beautiful but story direction still unclear
    In terms of the visual style this anime is very beautiful. It has good environmental and character designs.

    The characters themselves are mysterious. We do not know their intentions yet and the direction the story goes is yet still a bit unclear. However the show manages easily to keep me interested. We're seeing bits and pieces of what Chise and Elias can do and what kind of an impact it ...

  • Magic, Mystery and love.
    This Anime so far is really fantastic, the story is only outdone by the great artwork itself. Although it might not be as exciting and full of action as some other Anime stories. The characters are captivating and the mystery draws you in. As it is a prequel of the manga it does give a good start story.

    A love story full of magic and mystery gets 4/5

  • It's an amazing show
    Honestly, this has to be one of the best shows I've ever seen. It's really well made, and you feel attached to the characters almost immediately. The premise of the show is something that I've never really seen before, and the way that the characters interact seems to realistic.

  • Love this! Reminds me of Spirited away in Feel but more romance
    So soft and whimsical and BEAUTIFUL and I love the feel of the characters and the details of the places and people. AMAZING and I hope they make a full series of this.

    The main character Chise is heartfelt and you really feel for the horrible past she has lived through and recognize her as this broken down shell. Elias takes her in under no pretenses, buying her in an auction, to use for his ...

  • Beautiful and Entrancing
    I absolutely love both the OVA and the actual series! A mystical, intriguing, and fantastical world provides a beautiful setting for this story. From what I have read of the manga, the main anime stays true. I am excited every week for each new episode!

  • Ancient Magus Bride wonderful as the hype
    Was wondering why this was getting the hype this year. Now I understand.
    The story telling, animation, music are well done. It kinda reminds me Ghibli and a bit of Harry Potter with the kind of magic it shows. This is one of the two that are my favorites this season (Other than Just Because!).
