Despite having the ability to see otherworldly creatures, Chise Hatori has never considered herself lucky. Ever since her parents abandoned her at a young age, it has been the center of her hardship, driving her to the point of selling herself to the slave market, just to secure a place she can call home.

Presented to the bidders as a rare ''Sleigh Beggy''—beings who have an unusually high affinity to magical energies—Chise's last remaining hope appears in the form of Elias Ainsworth, a mysterious magus more beast than man. Rather than keep her as a slave, he has decided to make her his apprentice, as well as his bride.

Chise is not only physically transported to the English countryside where Elias lives, but also introduced to a world where wondrous things such as fairies and dragons are the norm. But she soon realizes there is as much to fear in her new life as there is to marvel at. And lying at the heart of it all is the question of whether she has fallen into the hands of something much darker than her own inner demons.

É minha primeira review, então tentarei ser breve. É uma história admirável, bonita, além de impactante. Simplesmente maravilhosa, apesar de ter começado mediana. Vale a pena. A Arte é linda, os personagens carismáticos, o cenário bem trabalhado, enfim, recomendo.

Before I go into detail on The Ancient Magus Bride (Mahoutsukai no Yome), there are things a few things you need must consider. First, it is a slow paced story, that does a good job of creating characters that have very solid personalities and introduces a nostalgic world that doesn't feel boring, but keeps an air of mystery to itself. Though the demographic for this manga is classified as shounen, there is little to actual battles that take place in the ( at the time of this writing) fifteen chapters. The story unfolds at at a slave auction where we meet Hatori Chise, a read more

My second review :) enjoy!
Slight spoilers I gues :/ not really to be honest.

Story: (9/10)
The plot is very original, I enjoy the fantasy aspect of the world. It's filled with faeries, dragons, vampires, spirits, sorcerers, magical beings, and much more yet to be discovered. Yet, Chise is a normal human being? Or so, that's what we thought

In the beginning, Chise is sold at an auction. Yes, a human is sold to a monster- I mean, Elias. Who may look like a monster in our eyes but he's a sorcerer who is looking for an apprentice, and a wife. Upon taking Chise under his wing, we read more
