  • It is absolutely wonderful
    It is such an amazing show! The team who works on the special effects and pure artistry should be commended. The plot is lovely and I look forward to what the next few episodes come to play. I deeply love this show and books. I hope everyone else can share my passion too.

  • Great atmosphere, best show on Crunchyroll.
    I don't normally write reviews but I had to stop and vent some praise for whoever made this show. This show will make you feel things. The art is beautiful, it has a sense of atmosphere and gentleness that isn't matched by any show I've ever watched. The "magic" is actually an interesting part of the story, not some great power used for fighting. I can't WAIT to see where this show goes. 100/10, ...

  • Amazing animation and story
    I have been waiting a very long time for this anime to come out. Ever sense I saw episode one. I am not normally one for romances but this story has completely captivated me and I just want MORE. My only fear is that this will only be a 12 episode anime.

  • Awesome anime with huge potential
    This anime seems to have so many elements that I yearn for in a good series. Its a fantasy but not childish, has a creative universe and intriguing characters. It has A LOT of potential to develop into an incredible show, we will have to wait and see..

  • Totally worth the Wait from the OVA
    Guys. Guys. First of all, the OVA/Background set up was stunning. I was so frustrated waiting for each new episode, but it was so worth it for the animation and quality of writing.

    The first two episodes of the series are now out, and I'm loving the world building they've started.

    There are obviously some mythos setup issues in that it's a time jump and not well explained, but I'm hoping ...

    Entertaining enough.
    People are gushing over this way too much IMO. It's not a bad anime, but it's definitely not close to the level of most ghibli films (which it is very much trying knock off), and I don't think it compares that favourably to most of the good anime recently either (berserk, my hero academia, made in abyss etc.).

    That said the animation is more than decent, so that does give it a boost.

    I ...

  • Cant put your finger on a single point, but fantastic
    For a anime that doesn't have a overt action or romance, this uses great art, story line and subtleties that will keep you hooked. For a guy I can honestly say this lives up to the hype. Adds enough anime humor, but it's the character development that a true win.

  • One of the best animes this season
    I've been following ancient magus bride since it's OVA's and the level of detail and passion is obviously seen in the work. The story is very captivating, but the world that they have created really seems to whisk you off your feet. if you enjoy studio ghibli fantasy films, mushi-shi, snow white with the red hair, or anything that has some kind of paranormal/fantasy/romance theme to it, the ...

    Interesting but not 5 stars
    It's refreshing to see an anime where they didn't phone in the storyline and animation quality is reasonably high quality. Many of the typical tropes are still there, just not in the usual manner. I'm really struggling to find anything worth watching this season, so this helps a bit.
