    Good, but probably not for someone who hasn't read the manga
    The episode has a slow start - it's clearly meant as a supplement to the manga for those already familiar with the series. However, at about 2/3 of the way through, it starts to pick up, and I'm definitely curious to see where it goes in the remaining two episodes.

    Elias isn't quite as I imagined him while reading the manga, but Chise is nearly perfect - both the animation and the voice acting ...

    Wizard's, Magic, Mage's whats not to love?
    You know I really can't stand having to do a review when I just want to recommend an anime to potential viewers.
    This anime just came out, first episode was good.
    Need more episodes to fully rate but for the time being 5/5 is fine by me.
    P.S I love you.

    Good start looks like we have another great one
    I haven't read the manga on this one but after watching this first part ( even that is too short and it leave you wanting more). It remind me of the other good magic anime like the Howl's Moving Castle great art and plot. I hope the rest gets added soon.

    Ancient Magus' Bride
    First off i'd like to point out something off topic of what drawn me into this particular title. I love shows that deal in magic and I love games that deal with warriors and dungeons but this show gave me funny vibes of Blood Borne meets Miyazaki. I feel in love with the characters presented in this first episode and wow.... I want to know more about these characters. the setting to me is perfect ...

  • For those who have read the manga.
    As someone who has already read the manga, I was already in love with this anime ever since it was announced. In fact, the reason I read the manga was because of the announcement of this anime. I wish it was actually the anime of the manga I read but it is interesting to learn more about Chise and her past.

    I recommend you read the manga first because it is a supplement to the current story. ...

  • Good characters. Good setting. Great show.
    The manga is very good and this show seems to be off to a good start. I got excited when I saw it was coming out and have a feeling this will be a great show.

    i REALLY like this but a lot of you have the wrong idea of what it is
    after reading many comments about the first ep I felt I had to write somewhere a warning not to get to excited about this, don't get me wrong I think its a beautiful piece of work. unfortunately this is not a new series this a 3 part prequel ova for the manga that is being released 1 ep every 6 months or so. I hate to be the one to pop the bubble, and I would love to see a full anime but that's ...

  • I Want More Already!
    Magic is always fun for an anime and manga but this one has more of an Spirited Away feel to it which I find very lovable. The character are so cute. Elias looks like a scary being but he's really nice and his fondness over Chise is adorable. This is a very unique romance it seems to me. I find all the characters to be very likable and this, I expect great things from. Though I wish it was an ...

    Ghibli fans will love this one
    The first episode is beautifully paced, with a distinct atmosphere and a complex narrative. The animation is lovely, and the direction is superb. If you like being thrown into an immersive world with monsters and magic, you won't be disappointed. I'm eager to see where they take this series!
