    I just thought of something. This series would be perfect for someone that likes Anne Bishop's The Others series. Especially this volume when a girl is warned by a creature that there are worse things lurking and watching in the darkness. Kind of a similar feel with Chise/Elias and Meg/Simon. I'm surprised I've never made that connection before. Also there are fairies and shapeshifters and lots of fun stuff like that. I just thought of something.

This is a review of volumes 3-6 which I read together back to back. See the plot section for my thoughts on the individual volumes. We first meet Chise, chained by the neck and wrists being passed over to her new owner, a bone-headed mage whose name she learns later is Elias. A penniless orphan sold on the black market she learns about herself, the magical world filled with fairies and other fantastical creatures as well as what it means to be a part of a family. Her new life as a mage's apprentice is just the beginning as it comes with the secondary title of Ancient Magus' Bride... To be honest the title is what first drew me to this series... but once I opened the first volume I was totally hooked!! It is crafted lovingly in my favorite type if manga art style. A modern, crisp and clean version of the big-eye style with a subtle ornateness that makes the entire style stand out. The humor is a little more subtle than other shonen series with the stark style rounding out into the cute Chibi style when emo moments happen. It's the best of both worlds! The creatures and magic are visually quite cool and add so much to what is a 2D world. There is this lovely balance of fae, magic and the supernatural that works so well with the slice of life nature of the manga. We regularly start or end with quiet moments for regular life. The celebration of a holiday, the success in some studies and a chat with a new friend! Whatever is happening is a part of the fabric of Chise's life and helps us to understand her better and experience a little of what her life with Elias is like. I LOVE IT!! Chise is finally at home in the world, and as a result she is making friends and forming bonds... (and I love every one of those moments!) Most of all though I love Chise with Elias. He is awkward in the best of ways, doesn't understand the feelings that are arising and Chise herself only barely understands! In volume 3, we see Elias get vulnerable protecting Chise and she has to reassure him. And then in volume 4, along with Chise, we learn some of his history with Lindel and what he has experienced with humans. Then in volume 5 we learn how Silky came to take care of Elias' home! And in volume 6 a friendship develops with a most unlikely alchemist apprentice! It's lovely and you never know when the dastardly Cartaphilus will appear or if it will simply be one of the dangerously amoral and beautiful fae who will threaten someone this time. It could be fae culture we're learning about or a deeply poignant moment between Chise and Elias we are experiencing. Whatever it is I'm engaged and loving it! Over our head like an axe is always the knowledge that Chise is NOT safe. Not from the fae denizens, though Elias will protect her, not from the magic she is able to absorb. That tension runs through every single moment of the manga. You wonder when the next blood spurting moment will happen... if this time she won't be able to come back to herself... It makes the sweet moments sweeter and the dangerous moments more harrowing... Always the question lingers will Chise and Elias be able to reach the pinnacle of their relationship before her time is up?! That makes for a beautiful and emotional journey, of which I enjoy every second! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tension ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Art ______________________ You can find this review and many others on my book blog @ Perspective of a Writer.

    Really enjoyed this volume - it focused more on character development (especially Elias and Chise’s relationship, and Alice’s friendship with Chise) which was satisfying to read. The artwork remains stunning and I’m looking forward to reading volume 7!

    The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol. 6 focuses more on character development then anything else. This one was a bit slower then the others. We see Alice return and Chise has made a friendship with her. We see Elias have a reaction to Chise having friends. And, we get the Ashen Eye story which was nice. Last, our evil villein makes an appearance at the end of the book. As always the artwork remains stunning. The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol. 6 was enjoyable enough. Rated: 3 Stars The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol. 6 focuses more on character development then anything else.

    Yeah guys I'm going to find it hard to ever rate this series otherwise. Anyhow let me start with a short review of the special booklet that came with the volume! Chise is afraid of lightening and Elias finds out! What is the source and how can he comfort her? (spoiler: apparently by terrifying her differently). Super adorable short with them two, illustrates their deepening bond quite well.

As an older sister the Ashen Eye story hit home (gods how many times did I wish myself an only child?) and later I understood Elias' reaction to Chise having friends. it's disquieting at first right? Now that I'm caught up again I have to wait til I think July ;.;

    Still Christmas! I was expecting the characters Stella and Ethan to be only for this one story, but looks like they're being kept around for a bit. I forget, where did Chise get the shapechanging pelt? Still Christmas!

    Another installment in a story that I find interesting but lacking a certain je ne sais quoi. Each volume grows on me a bit more, but I feel as if I need to read them all a second time to truly understand what the author is trying to impart upon the reader.

    Another beautiful volume in this wonderful series. My copy also came with a cute little special booklet. Chise and Elias's friendship grows stronger - this volume was more about character development than plot progression. I love this series, but I hate the long wait between volumes.

    I remain entranced. An interesting focus on what it means to be family, whether chosen or blood. Gorgeous art, endearing characters, just enough menace and danger and trickery and resolution to pay appropriate homage to the fae.

    The art in this is still beautiful - really love the cover and the first colored photo in the beginning. It's still lovely to read in black and white - but the color really make the artwork pop. Still love the storyline, this moral largely being "what you say makes a difference; you can't take back spoken (or written) word." The appearance at the end makes me uneasy for the next book...(in an excited to read it kind of way!)

    I need to stop seriously. That's the thing with reading manga. Sometimes the end is so far away in sight that you're just tired to keep on waiting for the next volume to come out. That and nothing actually resolved (or even expanded) after 6 volumes. At this point, I'll just stick to standalone novel. At least I know they'll end in just a couple of days (rather than half a decade). But still a nice premise though. I just don't have the patience to wait for the next volume.

    While It's really nice seeing Chise take a more active role in her life, her relationship with Elias is still a little icky. In this volume we find out his idea of marriage is two people sharing a house and working together, rather than anything romantic or sexual, but he also gets jealous when she spends time with new friends and sends a magical drone to spy on her.
