  • It really is magic for the soul.
    I started watching because I loved the art, but little did I expect it would have a healing effect in my soul. Totally worth watching if you are looking for answers about who is there for you when you feel the most lonely. The art, the themes presented... It is all so good.

  • Beautiful, but rushed...
    Absolutely in love with the work that has been done with the anime- it has a beautiful story line and makes you feel exactly how you should feel following the plot. Whilst it follows quite closely to the manga, I feel as though they rushed to end it even though the manga hasn't ended itself.

    I hope they continue the story despite where they have left it here in the anime.

  • Big potential, but big confusion
    This anime started off really cool and gave a lot to look forward to. However it also left a lot to be desired. It essentially never answers any questions and leaves so many puzzling plot twists each episode without ever addressing them the next. You pretty much get the jist of things and that's the way it ends.

    A vivid world of fantasy
    Overall, this was an amazing anime, it was a take on fantasy that I haven’t seen in a while. The settings were vivid and beautiful, the story kept me watching till the end, and the characters were deep and interesting to watch. Chise and Ainsworth were an odd pair to see at first, but it works out in a way, though their emotional goal may be similar, they take different routes to better understand ...

  • Absolutely Beautiful Anime
    If I could give this anime ten stars I would. It is beautifully animated, most episodes anyway. The voice acting is amazing and the music is to die for. You have to think in order to understand the plot as it involves a creature who buys a teenager in an underground auction and the two begin living their lives together. This isn't an action anime or shonen by any means. There are some action ...

    The Ancient Magus' Bride is jaw-dropping
    This is a stunningly gorgeous series with beautiful visuals, an amazing soundtrack, and life-like characters. The Ancient Magus' Bride has made me laugh, cry, and fall in love with its dynamic cast and magical world. This is one of my all-time favorite animes and I will recommend it to otakus and non anime fans alike.

    Absolutely beautiful
    This show is one of the most beautiful fantasy series I have seen. It had a very original story, and I would recommend it to everyone who hasn't already seen it. The art is beautiful as well, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the whole thing. I typically can't keep up with any show over the course of it airing, but this one I kept up with pretty much constantly. I loved this one so much, and will ...

  • It was a magical joyride
    I had doubts about watching it for a long time but finally decided to after the series completed. The opening song was beautiful and the animation took my breath away. I dont think I've ever seen a show where a metaphorically dead person could have life breathed back into them but thats exactly what happened throughout this show. Every new event brought in something musial and I'm delighted to ...

  • The Ancient Magus' Bride is Magic
    The praise for The Ancient Magus Bride is well earned. The series is filled with characters and magic that draw you in. I look forward to re watching the series again like I do Ghibli Films and other exceptionally well done anime. I recommend watching the main series first before the OVA as it contains certain spoilers.

  • Do yourself a favor and watch this
    Just...........WATCH IT. Honestly. I never write anime reviews, but this one is exceptional. The story-telling, the graphics, the character development, 10/10! All of the characters are so well written, and believable (well, in a world where magic exists lol)
