Here is is, guys, the long-awaited crowning jewel of the Fall 2017 Season: The Ancient Magus’ Bride. I’ve been looking forward to this show for over a year now, and I ended up having to get my fix by buying the manga! The show takes us one a rollercoaster of emotions just in the first episode alone; from tears to laughter, smiles to fear, and back again. Everything about this show seems to have been honed to perfection, and the careful attention to detail definitely shows.
Visually, the show is absolutely stunning; a work of art where almost every frame could be screenshotted and used as a wallpaper. The soundtrack is incredible, and both the OP and the ED are perfect for the show. The characters are well-defined and interesting, and the story itself is engaging and wonderfully told. If you were ever looking for an example of what was possible to do in an Anime, look no further.
Honestly, this show pushes all the right buttons for me, plus quite a few extra. I can’t say for sure how the ending will turn out, but if it’s anything like the first few episodes, it is going to be absolutely fantastic. I can’t stress enough how excited I am to have this show finally releasing, and i can’t wait to see more of this wonderful world.
