What is the ancient magus bride about
The Ancient Magus Bride, Vol. 1 by Kore YamazakiOK, this... is what I get for browsing Amazon after midnight when the gremlins are abroad, but anyway, this one is intriguing. I was looking for a counter to the latest very shonen thing Id read, and this was.
Someone once said the two ur-models for romance are Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and this tale falls squarely into the second camp. It is also, I suspect, informed by the The Tale of Genji romance model, less known in the West. Some other reviewers who are having very 21st-Century freakouts over the age and (so far) power differentials of the two protagonists may be unaware of the latter thousand-year-old Heian classic novel, dunno. (Ive actually read Genji, ages ago in translation.)
Shall not attempt to describe the plot so far, but the mode is on the whole gentle, with dark edges. I liked it enough to consider buying Vol. 2 for my tablet, well see.
Much later: have just read this through to the end of Vol. 9, and found that the anime tracks the manga very well throughout, even, mostly, the ending at episode 24 which I had incorrectly suspected to be an anime add-on. Vol. 9 does go on one scene farther, which starts a new arc. Vol. 10 is not yet at my library. Still very pretty artwork.

Hey everyone. Before we get started, I just wanted to give out a big thanks to Joshua Ott for sponsoring this review with his Patreon donation. Ever since she can remember, she has been able to perceive and interact with eldritch creatures that no one else can see or hear. Year after year, she has been passed between family members, never finding a stable home—constantly being harassed by the terrifying monsters that surround her. But just in the moments before she does, she meets a strange man who offers her a proposal. Her ability to see spirits marks her as a rare type of human.
The story follows Hatori Chise, a sixteen-year-old girl who has lived with more loss than most people. Her situation is bleak and she is without family and there is little reason for her to hope for any good to come into her life. It is as though fate opened a door to her in the darkest hour of her life when a magus makes an appearance into her life. He offers her opportunity that is difficult for her to refuse, but he has a darkness that makes him seem more like a demon than a human being. Some anime enthusiasts like to read the manga before they watch the animated version on television.
