Hatori Chise, 15 years old. Lost, without hope, and without family, she is bought for money—not by another person, but by a non-human sorcerer named Elias. Though she hesitates, she begins life anew as his apprentice and future wife. She moves on with her new and peaceful life, slowly but surely, until one day, when she finds a Japanese picture book among the many sent to her from London by Angelica. It is a fateful book that discovered her in her younger years, when she was still troubled and lonely. This piece is a prequel to Chise's encounter with the Thorn Sorcerer.

The Mahoutsukai no Yome’s a neat little side story.

The main appeal of the ova is essentially seeing how everything is presented rather than the actual narrative elements themselves. The anime doesn’t try and get you interested in Chise by telling you she’s an orphan hated by everyone for being weird, it wants you to get invested in her through scenes like her not being able to bed because there is literally a monster inside her futon or her talking about how happy she feels when she finishes a book. The story never asks you to doubt that it’s all going to work out fine, it read more

It was a beautiful story although it only lasted for three episodes. Keep in mind that there's a full length series coming this October. I've never read the manga and I don't intend to read until the I've finished watching the upcoming anime series. So, in this review, I'll only be talking about what I think only from watching the OVA.

The story was beautiful. If you haven't read the manga, you'll be kinda confused at first but not that much. As far as I see, the OVA mainly focus on Chise's backstory. And I have to say, it was very good. From the first episode, read more

Spoiler free review

So The Ancient Magus' Bride is a show I'm eagerly waiting for when Fall 2017 finally decides to arrive. I have not touched the manga so I knew little about it, but the synopsis and the magical elements piqued my interest enough to check out this prequel OVA that took a year to finish airing 3 eps. After finishing it, I'm not exactly sure why this was necessary.

The plot is simply a back story to the main girl Chise Hatori, seeing what her life was like as a child way before she found the world of magic. The drama shown during these episodes read more

*some spoilers for Mahoutsukai no Yome: Hoshi Matsu Hito*

Literature is an interesting, often captivating medium, filled with immaculate descriptions, and exciting worlds to explore with your imagination as you read the carefully thought out words of an author who built that portal for your mind. Some may say that with the advent of animation and film becoming truly mainstream, that literature has become someone of an under-appreciated medium.

Mahoutsukai no Yome, above all else, is a pleasant reminder of the power of a story, especially the power it has on a child. Falling just shy of true greatness, it manages to still achieve dramatic tension and read more
