  • A Beautiful Tear Jerker
    Only works that are as fleshed out as this one can really evoke emotion, and this one hits it out of the park. A love story with a different meaning and ideals to our own form of love sprouts from the two mains, and grows throughout each episode. Hopeless romantics rejoice as a great show is before you!

  • Great anime with magic/love
    Overall I thoroughly enjoyed The Ancient Magus' Bride, I found the characters to all be endearing, the story interesting, and the magic system especially cool. The relationship development between not just characters, but themselves too is rather impressive, as Chise and Elias both help each other learn about love, for Elias, and magic, for Chise.

  • Magical, Stunning, and A Bit Unpredictable
    From the actual series to the OVA, this anime was beautifully crafted both literally in the artwork and in reference to the storyline and progression of the characters. The lighthearted comedic moments were as enjoyable as the dark parts were emotion-filled; the relationships between Chise and Ainsworth and all the other characters are complex and ever-changing. This is for sure one of my favorite ...

  • This was almost perfect
    The animation and the music are the two best pieces of this anime.
    The story is nice too but towards the end the English sub seemed to be either mistranslated or out of place. Some of the dialogue just didn't make much sense, Especially during the last episode, it was painfully obvious that it was rushed.

    However this show encapsulates magic so well, everything feels ancient and deep, a very ...

  • Interesting and grabs your attention
    I went in watching this with little expectations. It turns out to be a lot more interesting than I thought it was going to be. It was definitely a show that I didn't want to end. I look forward to seeing if more episodes eventually come out. If so, I look forward to watching more.

  • A truly beautiful work of art
    This may be the most aesthetically pleasing shows I have seen. To say this show is beautiful is an understatement, it is enchanting. Both the plot and the design enthrall the viewer in a world of magic and wonder. I only wish I had watched this show sooner than I did. Absolutely amazing.

    An absolute gem in the anime world!!!
    Not only is the show visually stimulating with the art style, but, the story line is one of a kind. It is well balanced between dark and light. Shows the cruelties of the world but yet still shows the sweetness of life. This series is not only realistic with human emotions but also portrays that non-human organisms don't think the same as we do. If you're looking for something that will keep you ...

    Such richness and depth, into spirits, magic, and not just Japan
    This series is incredible. There is so much going on this world and storyline... it feels every episode is like immersing yourself in Harry Potter in terms of how much detail there is to everything - there are so any storylines you glance at, while following the incredibly immersive main characters...

    I never thought I'd cheer on this relationship so much, and this show - but there is just so ...
