Chise Hitori was a child nobody wanted. Told by her own mother that she should never have been born and passed from one neglectful guardian to the next, the young girl has grown up feeling lost, hopeless and emotionally numb. At age fifteen she sells herself into slavery, desperate for a home where somebody- anybody- actually wants her to be there, and is purchased by a mysterious being with a skull for a head. He whisks Chise off to his home in England and introduces her to a world of talking animals, dragons and faeries, declaring that she is to become his apprentice in magic... and also his bride!

So... I'm not alone here, right? The Ancient Magus' Bride, winner of Crunchyroll's Best Drama 2017 award (despite not having finished airing... jumping the gun much?), darling to critics and anime viewers everywhere... it's not actually THAT good? Right? Guys? Now it would be very poor form to just leave it at a pithy declaration of cynicism, so I'll elaborate; TAMB has a number of interesting elements... read more

The Ancient Magus' Bride. An anime that set up one of the best drawn universes I've ever seen with nearly flawless animation & sound.. Just to fall flat on their face following up and ending it.
