  • 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 ...

    This is a Great Story
    It isn't too often I get pulled in to anime these days. THIS however is a GREAT anime. The art style is kind of hit and miss imo it's odd but not awful like some anime out there.. This anime really does need another season. I need to know more about Elias. I don't think there was any part that really dug deep in to what exactly or who exactly he is and how he ended up the way he is. I keep ...

    Visually gorgeous and original story.
    Beautiful anime about magic, (personal) growth, relationships, self sacrifice and so on. I loved their take on well know mystical/mythological creatures and their original ones were fantastic as well.

    Heartwrenching at times, but very pleasing as well.

  • Great from beginning to end
    This is a hard story to characterize, but by the end, it came down to two individuals having faith in each other and finding love. The trials, tribulations, and adventures it took to get there were fascinating. The visual aspects of each episode were outstanding. The mystical aspects of many of the characters and their life philosophies were spiritually uplifting. I will no doubt watch this again.

    Leans too much into YA tropes for me to get into it.
    Passive protagonist girl with self esteem issues that is whisked away, revealed to be a "special" and is destined to be the bride of a tall ancient powerful man with dark and dangerous exterior.

    I can probably chalk this up to me not being the target audience, but the animation was decent enough, the three episode introductionary thing was decent enough, that I gave the main series 3 episodes ...

  • Was not disappointed
    It took me some time to start this anime after hearing about it from someone on YouTube. It has that Beauty and The Beast vibe in the sense that the human girl stays with and develops feelings for the beast, who then grows fond of her as well. The magic aspect of the anime was cool and the bond between them isn't creepy despite the age gap. I'm glad I gave it a go and I wish to see another season ...
