That was a good start, but the feeling for me is that i expected more and something was missing. Found it rather strange that it just started with opening, i might not watch a lot of stuff so can't remember such thing to happen in a long time even more in the first episode. The transitions between the scenes were really strange in the beginning, don't remember how it was in the manga and probably can't get that feeling. And overall felt different from the manga.
Still i thought it was good, but not good enough, i hope that it gets better.

Anime has been pretty stale and cliched for me recently, but this is the kind of show that makes me appreciate anime so much. The art and animation is absolutely beautiful, but the OST is what stood out to me the most. I can't wait to see more.

While the episode was spectacular, I just lost all little faith I had in CrunchyRoll. How could they fuck up the translations so bad? Slay Vega became Sleigh Beggy and they even mistranslated Silky's name.

As much as I love the manga I'm gonna put this on hold until some fansubs pick it up because I refuse to keep watching this with CR subs.

Well sort of. The manga got a prequel anime. And the new show coming out is an actual adaptation instead.

The 3 OAV were a prequel ? Nice to know (I thought it was some OAV to promote the anime). I assume we do not need to watch it before watching this anime, right ?


Yeah, I would actually watch the OVA prequel after watching several episodes of the upcoming anime. It was made as a prequel to the Manga and the episodes were shipped with volumes 5,6, and 7 of the Manga in Japan.

While CR subs are usually horrible, here if you listen closely Elias doesn't call Silky by name (shiruki) but says "gin no kimi" which means "silver one".

Also the Japanese have huge trouble pronouncing the -v sound, so you clearly hear "sley begga". But CR translators probably don't bother with manga so that's unprofessionnal.

I've heard a lot about Mahoutsukai no Yome, but I haven't read the source material or watched the OVA's so watching it for the first time today I had no real idea what I was expecting.
I can say that I am absolutely hooked without a doubt. This is such a lovely anime, the animation is beautiful, the taste of the soundtrack we've already gotten is lovely, I really like both of the MC's. I am looking forward to future episodes.

Other people tell me your opinions please.

I'll admit that things can be a bit confusing for those who haven't watched the OVA, but to me this was a darn good first episode.

I just love how goofy Elias can look for a goat-demon-wizard thingy. And everything about this anime is just absolutely gorgeous, from the OP, to the music, to the ambience.

Man, this season will be the feels season. 3-gatsu, Kino no Tabi, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou and now this... Is like the universe just wants to make me cry before Christmas.

Only after I checked the mal discussion forum did I realized that there is an ova that is supposed to be the prequel for this series
I might have to check it out since it might contain a valuable experience and also an additional enjoyment but first I have to say
That was an amazing first episode. Even thought I have not read the original source. It really reached my expectations considering that this is the most anticipated anime of this season. The animation is as expected of studio. I think I really am going to enjoy this show. Also the mc kinda reminds me of the mc from akagami no shirayukihime with the red short hair. Is it a thing in Japanese shoujo manga to have the mc girl designed like that?
But the thing I took notice at the first was the opening. Here I thought it was a familiar voice. I feel ashamed that I couldn't realize who it was untill her name came up. Junna my new idol! I'm gonna enjoy the opening too!!

Beautiful Artwork along with mystery element which keeps to attached to your seats.
It's like watching a fairy tale which we used to hear from our grandparents and are lost in the mystery world/ Dreamworld with superpowers and mystical creatures.

After watching its OVA it's like watching from where it all begins and I haven't read the manga but from this, i can tell the story would be awesome with this sort of start.

This one would be something like love mystery thriller along with sorcery!!!

Great first episode I feel like they did a great job introducing the characters and giving us enough flashbacks to kind of get a clue why Chisa was being sold and what kind of setting the anime does have.

Also I'm surprised about how handsome Elias is I mean yeah he looks like a monster but I can't help but think that he's a pretty handsome character nonetheless! Love his calm and loving demeanor. Awesome how it's not a cliche shoujoisque kind of story where she's being adopted by a standard pretty guy =)

I liked the episode, though I found the transition between some scenes a bit fast, but it just an small nitpick.
I love Elias's character too. A wizard with the aspect of a demon, who dresses and behaves like a gentleman, able to make jokes from time to time and with awesome magic.

I liked the OVA, hopefully, the series will be as good as that one.

Fantastic start I could easily marathon this series. Beautiful animation and it has a great soundtrack. Not a Fan of the OP it doesn't suite the series at all.

Can't wait until next weeks episode, bar far the best of the season so far

Wow I actually feel proud of Studio Wit for this one, animation and sound is amazing, this looks like how I had hoped Akagami no Shirayuki-hime was going to be like but wasn't.

If the quality stays like this and the story stays interesting for 24 episodes, I'm sure this will be one of my first 9 or 10 from a seasonal anime in a while.

Well, the only thing I enjoyed from Delta was just the music even for me. I felt that they didn't do justice to the other characters. BTW, this op arrangements kinda feels like a Turkish music especially the guitar.
Also I forgot to mention, is there nobody who will question this show about the male MC's head? What's that supposed to mean. A mask? I even Almost mistook his last name as Ainz oal gown.

Engaging first episode. I was completely drawn in.

The only negative I can think of is when they when into chibi mode. Keep this show serious and leave the chibi stuff with the companion short show -- it's cute there...not so much here.

That aside, maybe the best premier of the season -- or at least my fav one so far...

Why wasn't it translated as "Slay Vega"? It sounds much cooler than "sleigh beggy"!

It was a very cute and gorgeous episode, the opening felt like it went by too quickly and the art looks just as good as the prequel.

Chise and Elias are so precious ♥️


agreed.. It irritates me how they translated it to "Sleigh Beggy" but whatever -3-
Slay Vega sounds so much better..

Dunno why they chose to use Sleigh Beggy than Slay Vega, it is clearly Slay Vega in the manga ;;

Oh well :/ I still think it very beautiful aside from that fact :)

The official translation apparently uses Sleigh Beggy simply for the reason that this term is actually grounded in reality from some celtic folklore which seems to be in line with the in universe mythical theme.

Beautiful first episode. Lovely OP & ED song.
I am loving the atmosphere of this show. OST is great & the hints of comedy is nice. Art & Animation is great as well.

Hopefully Chise can become happy with her new family.
Ainsworth taking in Chise was nice & his magic is cool.

Bit odd he wants to hopefully make Chise his bride.

Looking forward to more.
