Mahoutsukai no Yome
The Magician’s Bride (The Ancient Magus’ Bride)
Takes 10 minutes and 3 criteria to decide if the anime is going to be good. Criteria N1: art/Animation/Character Design. N2: The amount of cliché (the less is better… obviously.) N3. X factor, (something that catches interest instantly). There are exceptions every now and then, 10 minutes and even first episode are really good and then anime turns out to be a *rap, for example Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine. But not this time. Mahoutsukai no Yome The Ancient Magus’ Bride / The Magician’s Bride by Wit Studio is definitely not one of them. It really is a good anime. How do I know? Doesn’t matter, I and as well as entire DameHiki team vouch for the series.
One more thing, there’s times when you watch the first episode of a really good anime and you think… “I’m just gonna wait this thing to finish airing and only then watch it full”… well, this isn’t one of those anime series. The first thing that comes to your mind after episode 1, that you can’t wait for episode 2. It really is that good.
