  • Beautiful to Watch and Listen
    This is one of my top picks ever from now on. If someone asks for a good drama to watch, this will be the first one I say for sure. And I'm sad it's over because all I want to do is hear more of the gorgeous soundtrack they created.

    Getting into the show can be a bit of a chore, but as others of said before; use the 3 episode method. You won't regret it. What is great about The Ancient ...

  • Pleasantly surprised!
    As someone who has always loved heavy action anime with big flashy battles I would never have thought a story such as this would get me so hooked. The music is spot on and the art style is amazing, they really do capture the wonder and awe of a magical world perfectly. Every saturday had me going "Hell yeah a new ep of The Ancient Magus´ Bride today" when i woke up in the morning.

    The ending ...

  • Out of this Universe
    The work in this anime are out of this universe. It's breathtaking from art to story so a definite watch without question. The main characters' interactions with each other are flawless. It has moved quite few times to where tear are produced probably the most elaborate show in representing magic.

    Go watch!!!!!

  • Great series, great plot motion
    For me it's the magic trifecta of: Size difference, monster-dude, and the male lead being faced with (temporary) mental anguish and raw emotion that he has to learn to deal with to be with the one he has come to love. A great slow, but not too slow, burn towards happiness with some emotional pain along the way.

    I do miss some of the details they put in the manga, but there are time constraints ...

  • I'm Obsessed. Incredible, Magical Series.
    I haven't watched something that really hooked me like this in a long time. It stirs my inner child, who often wrote and daydreamed about fantasy worlds such as this in her spare time. I love that the creator actually spends time building upon these characters' identities and backstories. As someone who loves characters in general, I really appreciate this, as recently in other series I've ...

  • About the ova 'Those awaiting a star'.
    These three episodes are actually embedded in episode thirteen. So stop episode 13 where the mage and the girl are reading a book together and see the Ova. This point is where the story of the library goes. Then resume episode 13. Just so you know, for continuity.

  • One of the best animes I've ever watched.
    Gosh, I cannot even describe how The Ancient Magus Bride makes me feel. Joy, sorrow, happiness, and love. If you want an anime that drags you into a whirlwind of emotions, full of beautiful animation and a heartwrenching soundtrack- then you've found the right one! I love this, I love Elias and I cannot keep crying over these cliffhangers they're leaving me on! <3

  • This is just what I needed
    I have been searching through animes, and lovely things have always shown up that remain in my heart forever, but this series has me trapped in like I'm about to ride on one of the best road trips I've ever been on. It's classy, it's romantic in some ways, it's got a lot of depth, and sometimes even shocks me! Truly a masterpiece in my opinion and worth the watch, and read~!
