Synopsis

Chise Hatori has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise's life will never be the same again.

The man is a "magus," a sorcerer of great power, who decides to free Chise from the bonds of captivity. The magus then makes a bold statement: Chise will become his apprentice—and his bride!

(If you're looking for a show with quality graphics, an interesting fantasy aspect, a deep story, then this is for you. Please note, this review is more of my first impression since it just came out today.)

● Story: The story is great. It starts differently than most shows I have watched myself. Instead of starting of with the main characters sad sub-plot, they do some character development and put it later in the episode. I like all the magical being floating around and what not and it feels like a Studio Ghibi film.

● Art: The art is outstanding. The animation has style and you can read more

(Do note that despite only having watched a single episode at the release of this review, I have read the manga up to date, and can affirm that the series isnt too faithful to the manga, probably due the lack of allocated episodes. Nonetheless, I do wish to give my best attempt at a decent review, with minimum spoilers as possible! Thank you! :)


Remember the Disney films you watched in your adolescence? That youthful charm of curiosity and fresh budding imagination made you awe at the simple magic potrayed in those animations. How they would soar above the night skies of britain and charmingly read more

Bear in mind that i haven't read the manga, i've only watched the first episode.
-This reveiw does contain spoilers-

Story-5
The plot is basically Chise, our heroine, ha a hard childhood and she can see these weird things that no one else can. She stumbles upon a libuary and thats the end of the first episode. The beginning shows her in a house with a man who has a skeleton animal face. This is where i was lost with the anime. The show does very little to explain whats going on in the first episode, and thats where youre suppose to decide if you like the series read more

Story - 6

Coming from someone who loves the manga very much this first episode was just... I don't know maybe disappointing. I guess I was expecting more of an adaptation then a back story that isnt shown in the manga at all. If you've never read the manga this will just seem so aimless. You won't know any of the characters what a Slay Vega is, why Chise is with Elias.. heck it doesnt even seem like this has a plot at all!

Art - 10 (9.5)

Mahoutsukai honestly looks amazing, the colors, the flow, just it's great. Very beautiful. The only problem I had with it read more
