Having been ostracized by both her relatives and partially by society, orphaned high school student Chise Hatori decides to sell herself at an auction in order for somebody else to take her in and have a new place to call home. At the auction in London, she is sold for five million pounds to Elias Ainsworth, a seven-foot-tall humanoid with an animal skull for a head. This magus, who seems closer to a demon than human, either brings her the light she desperately seeks or drowns her in ever deeper shadows in her new country, Britain.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride is a refreshing, slow-paced slice of life anime that follows Chise Hatori as she starts a new life with her mentor, Elias Ainsworth, a powerful mage with mysterious origins. The main premise of the series explores the relationships and interaction of both the supernatural and real world through Chise Hatori’s encounters. Although the plot was rather absent, the beautifully crafted world and music definitely allows us to recommend this anime.
