  • Magic - Monsters - Awkward Unknown Love
    The series was SO FREAKING ENJOYABLE AND ADDICTING! The show was gorgeous to watch. Pleasant to the eye like "My Lie in April" and "Sailor Moon Crystal", but it's own type. Music was used at the correct spots. Couldn't stop checking my list to see when the next episode would air.

    I.want.more.

  • BRILLIANT OMG. ONE OF MY FAVOURITES
    Many of you may disagree with me but i have made it up to episode 17 and counting . I have watched many anime series in my time and yes I have only just started this account but this is one of my favourites at the moment. It starts with a girl called Chise . who is being sold as a slave and then this odd figure walks in and instantly out bids everyone and buys Chise . And he tells her that he is a ...

    noteworthy fantasy drama
    ancient magus bride started out really strong. the OVA's were great and got me pretty excited for the series. it's about a skeleton magician and his new apprentice who he bought at an auction. she learns about the world of magic, while he learns about the emotions of humans. when the series started, i thought the world building for this fantasy setting was outstanding.

    but as the series went ...

  • my heart is full boi
    a lot of good messages about character growth and all different kids of relationships with some fantastic fantasy shit along the way. i just finished it but i cant wait to rewatch it in like six months time and relive the beauty. the episodes end at really good cliffhangers as well so each episode starts off with action

    My new favorite anime
    I just have to say that i fell in love with this in Episode 1, the characters, the backgrounds, and the story which is rare for me. The evolving relationship between Elias and Chise in my mind is the best part about this series. I wish i could give it more than 5 stars because i think it deserves a 10 star rating. im also really hoping for a season 2

  • In love with this story
    I started watching this series after seeing the ads which drew me in right away. The art is breathtaking and the story flows rather well. I wish each episode was an hour instead of half an hour to elaborate more as your always left wanting more.

    Season one catches up to all the released mangas so far so we will not have another season for quite some time I gather unless they plan on filler ...

    Beautiful Anime That Grows Into Hype
    This anime had crazy hype, and honestly, for the first 10-15 episodes I didn't really feel it warranted it. The story was imaginative, but nothing to groundbreaking. The animation and audio quality was always 5 star.

    HOWEVER!

    After about midpoint of first season (not including the miniseries) it really started to pick up. The characters and world began to fall into place and really grow into ...

  • This Series is amazing!
    I loved the heck out of this series, it's a fascinating world and the characters feel so real. The dialogue is well written too! although I do wish there was a bit more romance between the main characters, I am satisfied with what I've been shown. I haven't read the manga yet, so maybe there's more in there. I really, REALLY hope that season two gets green lit!

  • A fantasy for all of your senses
    Having followed the manga for its story and refreshing take on a fantastical world, after watching the OVA, the anime is nothing short of a masterful work on its own.

    Don't expect complicated plots or every little piece of twist explained. You will be fulfilled by the story of two of pitiful characters discovering love. Everything is right: the rhythm, the dialogues, the animation, the music, ...

  • Strong start, weak mid game, with a satisfying end
    To start this series has wonderful examples of how to do character development, it's imaginative scenarios kept me wanting more at the end of most episodes. seeing the main character face challenges and grow steadily while still showing that their struggles are truly hard. even when thing seem all better the show is quick to remind you that the girl is not truly OK. the show is not afraid to use ...
