Rated 4 out of 5 by from A enjoyable, but not particularly memorable series The Ancient Magus’ Bride as a whole (including part 2) has very pleasant animation and a lot of enjoyable qualities, but for me the series never really concluded in a way that left me satisfied. I thought the more self-contained episodes were quite good, but after the second half, the series starts to spend more time building up a central plot, and these episodes didn’t leave much of an impact on me, especially since I didn’t think the villain was anything special. To me at least, this is a fairly low 4 stars. I would recommend this series to those wanting to see a well-animated show with some good characters about magic and mystical creatures in a close equivalent to our world. It’s certainly well-above the average anime being produced today, although unless this series gets a continuation of higher quality, I doubt it will be remembered as anything more than pretty enjoyable.
