  • This was an amazing anime
    I absolutely loved this! For sure, the animation style and artwork were what drew me in... so I really wanted to like this one. Having never read the manga I wasn't sure what to expect. I was so touched watching this anime and so in love with this story that I have to go read the manga now. Music, animation, story... <3

  • A SIMPLY BRILLIANT ANIME
    no words can describe how good this anime is. It made me get in my feels, which is hard. It had outstanding animation. Great music. The pacing is just right. Every episode kept me wanting more.Its a master piece, a gem to be hold. If they did more episodes it would drag on but i still want more.

  • Very Faithful to the Manga!
    Asides from the weird snippet in the final episodes that's just completely lacking in dialogue, (which would make what's going on confusing to those who hadn't read the manga. But i think i read that was because it was in production at the same time of the manga chapters) it's pretty much exactly on point which is all I could really hope for. I was afraid the anime would go down the usual route ...

  • Beautiful Fantasy Anime
    It is a fantastic story with mythical creatures and folklore. You will not regret taking the time to watch this master piece. There were so many episodes that brought me to tears. The score, the writing, the animation, just all of it is magical. I would recommend if you are looking for a fresh story with fantastic visuals.

  • Wow I didn't expect to fall in love
    This is one long trip that I am happy to take. Just magical and engrossing! At the end I bought all of the manga volumes! The imagination and art of the show is really incredible! Chise's character resonated with me deeply. We all can see a part of ourselves in her. Oh and don't forget to watch the twitter shorts!

  • A wonderful anime for sure
    I loved this anime. It is visually stunning with some amazing writing. If you like story rich anime you will like this.

    There are lots of emotional moments that will have tears running down your cheeks or making you clench your fists in rage.

    It is one of the most beautiful animations I have seen.

  • Beautiful and captivating
    I was hooked from the first episode. The animation is absolutely beautiful. The characters and story line is interesting. I enjoyed the discovery of each character's backstory and I hope the next season (...please tell me there will be a next season...) will go further into explaining Elias's origins.

  • A must see for all anime lovers!!!!!
    This is one of the top anime i have watched in the past few years. A definite must see for all anime lovers. The old opening song from the first few episodes is called "Here" and the woman who sings it is named Junna. Info for those who liked the old opening better than the new one.

    Very Basic Anime, Good If You Like Typical Stuff
    Honestly it was okay, but i would have liked to see a bit more fan service and it would have been cool if they got transported into a video game world.




    mc also lacked a cellphone, very disappoint

    Human feelings in a magical world
    This series has really hit a weak spot in my heart. When first watching an episode i was like: "What am i watching? This confuses me." But after Episode 2 i was completely sucked into the world of the Anciant Magus's Bride.

    The way Chise learns to use her weakness and her past to become stronger both emotionaly and as a human being.

    I'd say go watch it if you havent.
