    A total masterpiece.
    You can literally feel Chise's pain when watching this show, as it is one of the most immersive experiences you'll encounter nowadays, or at least in 2017. This review will most likely be for the first episode, since it has already aired. But I'm sure this episode sets the tone for the series, and the quality of this anime will not go below what we have witnessed already.

    It has ...

    Haven't read the manga, only seen the anime so far..
    ..and boy oh boy am I digging it. The characters, the story, the animation... Everything is just perfect. It shows a world set in the present day, stirring with magic and mystery that normal people cannot see. Our main character, Hise, who has a heartbreaking but great backstory, grows up to become the apprentice of one of the few mages left in existence. This show has the potential to become ...

    I really really really love this anime.
    I'm sooooooooooo invested in this anime. I'm even reading the manga and I don't normally read mangas. I want ALL the episode at once!! Such and amazing start and it seems to be following well with the manga. Everything about this anime is beautiful. I am just here waiting for 10/14/2017 to come, it's taking too long.......

    My heart is broken...
    I didn't know anything about this show, and I didn't start it till after I'd already begun to lose hope for the fall season, having watched six or eight new first episodes (*mumbles something about Black Clover that doesn't make it past the vulgarity filter*). This won my heart in probably the first three minutes, and I spent the entire show loving it not only on its own merits, but as an example ...

    The Animation is OP!
    Backstory and development of the character of the first three episodes were a masterpiece, easy to get into, extremely interesting and the animation was on point.
    I loved the music, I loved the scenery, well chosen voice actors just wish to see a little bit before she was adopted, other than that well written and animated backstory.

    The Ancient Magus' Bride OVA
    These three episodes came out over about a year and a half's worth of time. I assume that the idea was to test the waters to see how receptive an audience would be for an adaptation for this manga into an anime. The actual main story of The Ancient Magus' Bride will be released in the 2017 fall season of anime; but when this originally started airing I don't believe that the full season was ...

    My new favorite - Stunning Visuals - Captivating world
    Absolutely adore this whole series. I binge read what has been published of the manga and I just can't wait. Excitement doesn't begin to describe! It's just so beautiful and so wonderfully done, the world is so creative, and unique.

    I cannot wait for the rest! I am so happy it's not going to be a small collection and that it will become a full fledged series. You really should read the manga ...

    Very Beautiful Series
    I really appreciate a series like this. It has robust characters, meaningful development to the plot, and its not holding the hands of the MC with op plot armor. I like how the MC starts off with a curse
    This is grounded in old myths, folk lore, and magic. It a series that shows that life sucks and to deal ...

    Overall fantastic but...
    Now before you watch this a high recommendation is to not expect a whole full blown anime yet. This is a prequel ova to an unfinished manga which means it won't be finished for a LONG time. Keep in mind as well, I watched the 1 episode first then got the manga, so this is coming from a fan's perspective.

    What's good:
    ~For most, a really good setup to a larger world found in the manga

    ~The ...

    I'm in love with the story, art, characters and music.
    Edit: Just found out that there is a full season scheduled to start in October this year. So stoked!

    This is a world where nothing is as simple as it appears and the balance of good and evil is challenged, not by big fights between protagonists and antagonists but by the lenses through which each character's actions are viewed. The interactions of the characters are layered and each has their ...
