  • Unexpectedly Heartwarming
    This show is about finding renewed purpose in life through shared experiences with new people in a mystical setting, and the evolution of a sketchy relationship into something wonderful. Things can get heavy or dark, but it always finds a silver lining or something to take away.
    Firstly, the show is beautiful and whimsical, yet creepy and unnerving at times. It truly feels like a fairy tale. It's ...

  • So Whimsical and Gorgeous, It'll Feel like You're Watching a Ghibli Film
    First off, this show is BEAUTIFUL! The animation is stunning. It's fulled with so much whimsy that it practically bursts off the screen. The magic and fantasy of the show are also extremely intriguing to learn about with each episode. Not to mention, the delightfully charming, yet flawed characters which make this a MUST WATCH.
    Overall, I highly recommend it to pretty much anyone, especially for ...

  • critique of The Ancient Magus' Bride
    It was a good story, though the transitions are sometimes hard to follow and the ending is more like a clifhanger or another beginning. Side note's aside I liked that the creative effort put into the story and the animation designs are well-done. I would recommend this anime to other anime fans.

  • A really beautiful show
    Ancient Magus Bride has some really beautiful moments in both animation and story telling. Some aspects can start to get a bit repetitive but the characters are all so charming that even the "bad" ones are likeable. If you want some good emotional story this is good option.

  • Fantstic lore and complex characters
    Finally an anime that does make magic out to be some gimmicky thing. This actually follows more around the actual Wiccan and Pagan view of magick and the lore of it. Such as the Lord and Lady of the forest and celebrating Yule. Making the fae creatures far more accurate then Disney renditions. I'm also satisfied with the story and the complexity of the characters. All of them represent different ...

  • Romantic but with a twist
    I loved The Ancient Magus Bride. It had multidimensional character development for both Chise and Elias. If you watch the first episode, and compare it with the last few, you can see that throughout the series there was a clear development between the both of them. It's funny, lighthearted yet somehow badass and serious, and heart-grabbingly romantic. While their relationship is strange, and ...

  • This has everything I wished for and more.
    For a while now, I have been kinda sick of fantasy anime, in the style they protrayed magic and the setting in general, everything was pretty lackluster, the same over and over again, and the magic lost its "magic". And the last one is the most important one, magic in other series feels like it has no proper meaning behind it when casted.

    This series on the other hand, does it incredible well, ...

  • Ancient Magus Bride: Why the Hype?
    So, we all know how Wit Studio's masterwork took the world by storm back in 2017. It seemed like everyone wanted to talk about Magus Bride and all they had to say was positive things! Being animated by the same Studio as Kabaneri and the Iron Fortress, as well as Attack on Titan, we knew the studio was capable of some fantastic animation, and was great at making a show a hit, but would the show ...
