I went into this knowing nothing but I saw it when looking at what was updated on Crunchyroll and thought it looked fascinating so decided to give part 1 a go. Kind of glad I did. It’s definitely slow moving but there are little bits of magic interspersed throughout which means that the scenes are never boring. While at first I found Chise to be a fairly bland character, by the end of this I genuinely felt for her and wanted to know more about her. I loved the study and the library in the forest. I would genuinely love to have a room like that (with or without the magic – just having that many books and that sort of space would be fantastic). Mostly the problem you end up with is this is a part 1 and so the story is just kind of starting when it ends. I will be looking out for part 2 because I’d like to know what happens next.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride is available on Crunchyroll.

I was super excited when I watched this, but then I discovered it’s coming out every 6 months or so? Boo!
That’s a little depressing really.
I NEED to watch this. The hype I’ve been hearing makes it sound absolutely amazing
They made an anime of this? I didn’t know! I love the manga, I’ll definitely need to check this out. I hope it stays true to the manga.
I’m not 100% sure of the details (having never read the manga) but I think it’s a prequel or something. I just kind of stumbled on to it and thought it looked interesting.
Oh ok. A prequel would be interesting too. Either way I’ll have to take a look soon. It’s become one of my new favorite manga.
oh yeah…i still need to watch this
