Another beautiful and informative episode with wonderful scenes. The preview of the next episode amazed me, what will happen?

pretty good episode, for some reason I think the phoenix flying part could have been animated better, but still nice.

Also that after credit scene - Im glad we can start the new year with this.

That was an impressive episode. Chise has reached unanticipated levels of power to the point she is a mage in her own right, or nearly so. The discussion with Nevin, the flying sequence, the finishing of the staff with Lindel's magic song = compelling stuff.

I couldn't help but think throughout this episode how thrilled I am this series is getting a 24 episode season because this would've been the last one if the show had gone the route of most recent anime (what with being only 12 episodes). And while this episode could of been a fine end episode, I am so glad it's simply the end of this arc as we move into the next half.
Especially after seeing the after credits I'm so excited for the upcoming episodes!

this first cour has been quite good it was paced very well liked how much detail went into every step of Chise's growth like making her staff.

all the beautiful visuals and scenery have spoiled me there's so many of them.


preview was enough to sell me, funny she just keeps getting bigger hoods lol

Hearing it again just makes me realise, I actually really like the song Lindel sings. I'll definitely download it in the future.

Someone stop Lindel from singing because his voice is just so fucking beautiful it makes me cry. ;-; I wonder if it's going to be available on iTunes or somewhere. I need it.

Chise's wand is so simple yet so beautiful and ugh that jewel kinda resembles her eyes, but much more beautiful version of her eyes like it's looking at the stars constantly. This anime is making me tacky, I s2g.

Her talk with Nevin lightens me up. Yeah, thanks to Chise's mother for not hurting and killing her, but she made her life miserable telling her that she shouldn't have been born. And I wonder if that dream of Chise's happened in real life like her mother used to be so nice to her and she's living with her family happily. If that's true then I bet her father died and somehow her mother couldn't deal with anything afterwards, hence she became horrible to Chise. Adnajsfasf!

Gaaaaah! Chise looking like a fairy is so beautiful--a fire fairy. Holy shit. Her magic powers, though. Kyaaaaa! So happy that Elias saw her looking like a fairy. Omfg. He saw her future bride looking so gorgeous. I mean she's always gorgeous, but dang Chise was so beautiful looking like THAT. With her flying and shit. Hahaha.

I wonder what she wanted to tell Elias. Is she going to say "I love you" to him or something? Hehe. I'm so curious. Show, don't fuck with me and take more than 4 episodes before she managed to say what she wanted to say to Elias. I'm gonna hurt you.

Those sheep-like creatures look like ticks. Lmfao.

Let me say that Ruth is so fucking adorable eating his food intensifyingly. Hahahaha.

Boiii, what's up with the preview!? Boiiiiii, Elias, what happened to you!?!?

5/5. <3

That visuals of the phoenix paired with the extended version of the OP performed by JUNNA was excellent!
looks like more intense things would happen next arc!
4/5.

Beautiful episode, even though a bit excessive on the still and looped shots. Phoenix Chise was fantastic to see animated.

Fit so well with the season ending, I almost thought this got changed to 1 cour. Thank goodness it didn't.

Looking forward to a new opening, they already reached everything shown in the current one.

Amazing as the episode was, that secound cour preview after the ED got me a bit concerned. It looks like the anime is going to have a original ending since the manga is still ongoing.

The next episode preview tho... I feel an unexplicable need to post a obligatory "Yokobe Shounen" comment whenever I hear Nakata Jouji's voice hahahahah.

Wow what can I say? The phoenix transformation animation was beautiful. The flashback to her mum and family was unexpected.

That scene before the preview which I assumed is a trailer to the 2nd concour was so intriguing.

All very nice, except the "flight of the phoenix", not because it is not done well, but because it was a bit too static, gave the feeling as if the director wanted to fill those minutes that were missing to show the arrival of Chise at home Elias. Dialogues very profound and useful to make history take a step forward. The creation of Chise's wand was a very interesting and exciting moment. Too bad that now I will have to wait two weeks to see the next episode, who knows if I can resist. ^^"

P.S. Cliffhanger very interesting, who knows those images before the anticipations what they refer to.

Chise's meeting with Nevin again was so nice! And what a beautiful part was that with the phoenix transformation!
Also, the memories from her past was a nice touch, so her mom also saw things, and she was pregnant, I wonder what happened to make her change.

Start of the ep was awkwardly paced but that Phoenix scene really was amazing. Judging from the OP, I had previously thought that she would die and be resurrected as a Phoenix, 10/10 did not expect.

Damn, Lindel's singing is so good.
Chise finally has her wand and she uses it right away to turn into a phoenix and the whole flight scene was so beautiful and the op being used made it seem more epic.

I really like how Chise being a phoenix ties in with her problems, and the foreshadowing of it. A phoenix rises from its own ashes, stronger than before - but it has to die first (literally, emotionally or metaphorically, with the preview's tears signifying a lot of sadness to come), so having a phoenix as totem animal seems to indicate a lot of future suffering before things can get beter.

The faeries helping ties in nicely with the distinctions between sorcerers and mages: sorcerers bend reality to their will (which is often crude, inefficient and bad for reality, is the inplication), while mages ask the fae to have reality bend for them. Four fire fae spontaneously and voluntarily helping Chise because she's just that good of a person can mean that she stands to become very powerful indeed.

Thanks a lot for reminding. I know this is completely unrelated, but is it the same case for 3-gatsu no lion season 2

Just finished marathoning episodes 7-12. Definitely a better way to watch, it's unsatisfying to only see 20 minutes at a time.

Nevin is the coolest dragon ever. It's really hard to write a "good advice" scene, but this anime did it.

Extended OP over the firebird scene was ... er... "lit". Looking forward to cour 2.
...but then again, I unironically like Warau Salesman.

Seems like Chise's parents could see the creatures too, and she has/had a younger sibling?
I'm glad to see she had at least some happy moments as a child.

Dayum, Chise was looking hot in the second half of the episode, I really like the fact that they incorporated the full op instead of TV version when Chise was flying that scene was absolutely fantastic. Besides that Chise's family were looking nice and friendly and I assume that they were both magicians scene they did say they can see the black thing.

man, i knew the phoenix chise scene would be beautiful, but i was still caught off guard by how dang magical it was! i've always felt that one of studio wit's major pros was it's animation since watching the first episode of attack on titan and they do not disappoint with the ancient magus' bride.

i also see that studio wit is taking a page from studio trigger with the opening playing during the hype scene of the final episode (of the cour), which is a very good thing. XD

What Nevin said about Chise's mother became pretty relevant in the manga recently, there's a lot more to her family and we just got more questions and mysteries introduced regarding them.
I was thinking about that as well. I'm glad they finally went into some detail about what happened to them. Still in the shadows but with due time.

Also what a beautifully relaxing episode with the characters and soundtrack. Really liked it :)

If it stays the same or gets better.. This anime will go down in history for sure as one of the greatest anime ever created.

It's absolutely fucking amazing.

I don't think I've watched an Anime this good in... Years.
