    Great expectation to naught.
    Absolutly beautiful, but ends before it starts. Do not watch. Its been more than two months and nothing more has been done. Maybe in a year or two this may be worth a watch, but not now. Wonderful world, interesting people and places, but since there is only 20 some odd minutes of content, ultimately a waste of time and investment.

    Wishing for More in the Future
    I love the manga for this story. It is a deep and compelling story so even though this is only a prequel OVA I am glad to see it. I hope if it gets the proper attention we could get a full series at some point in the future. If you aren't sure of it try reading the original manga and the story of its creators. It's awesome!

    What an interesting concept
    First episode peaked my interest enough to try out the manga while I waited for the update. Easy to say, that I binged read all that was available in a matter of days. Now I'm excited to see how the anime will go and how certain characters will be portrayed

    Wonderful animation and an interesting stroy
    This anime has a fairly unique and dazzling animation style that kept me from blinking for a really long time, not wanting to miss any of the beauty it withholds. The plot line if intriguing and I really want to know how this turns out, what path our main character will take and also how she will interact with other characters. I recommend it as a generally good anime, I think everyone should give ...

  • A truly amazing masterpiece
    This show is so beautiful, so well written, so interesting and unique, it would deserve a full series.

    It deserves the 5 star without a second of hesitation, even with just one piece of it out yet. But even if we look at the already written story, it only gets better. A show that delivers the quality it implied.

    Not for the Uninitiated
    I'd been seeing the eye-catching characters around for a while, so I thought perhaps this adaption would be a good entry point. Lord, how wrong I was.

    I find it baffling that they'd release so little, spread so far apart. Clearly this is not meant to lure in new people, but to sharpen interest from those already invested.

    There's nothing really wrong with this- the animation is fine, the ...

    A prequel for a beautiful story
    I may be a bit biased in my opinion, because I did read the manga, but do not let that deter you from watching this by itself. Reading the manga will add to the experience, but the show by itself is truly extraordinary. This is a prequel so if you're planning to read the manga, don't worry it won't reveal any major plot points. You see the main character's (Chise) backstory and how she acts around ...

    Visually beautiful anime designed to complement/ promote the manga but sadly not a series
    When I first saw promotional trailers & imagery for this anime adaption I was under the impression that this would be a standard weekly series. Sadly, although this was not the case it is beautifully done both from an aesthetic perspective and in its interpretation of the story & characters. Definitely designed more to promote and complement the manga rather than as an alternative supplement, I'd ...

    The Ancient Magus' Bride
    Now I own the first 6 volumes of the manga, and the manga is very good and I recommend everyone read it. For those of you who have read the manga, then most of you will agree that this first installment of 3 episodes is very confusing and misleading. They combine a few volumes in the span of 23 minutes and don't even go further into explaining how Chise ended up with Elias and how Ruth came into ...

  • I can't wait for part 2
    I just finished watching part one and I'm happily waiting for part two to come out. I heard that part two of this is coming out on March 10th??? Not too sure about that. I haven't read the manga yet, but i plan on doing so very soon. So far the story, characters, and animation is beautiful. Highly recommend so far. Only down fall is how long it is taking for each part to come out. There are ...
