Reviews The Ancient Magus' Bride, Vol. 2

  • Dani - Perspective of a Writer
    Check out more manga and graphic novel reviews @ Perspective of a Writer...As the second volume of a manga this volume completes the storyline started in the first and continues a new one. I have similar feelings toward it as I did for the first volume. See my review of volume one...The art is even better in this volume if you can believe it! The next story has some incredible art and we meet some new people! Spriggan is incredibly drawn and the ...

    B-b-but it can't end there!!!!!!It just can't!And I have to wait until December for the next volume?!
  • Lauren
    A magnificent 5 stars! I prefer this to the first volume which was a little confusing at times. The second volume is superb and full of surprises.
  • Rebecca
    Eventually I'll do a series review for the two volumes I've read, but this was another great read. I'm looking forward to volume 3!P.S. Since you're probably reading this, thanks Luke for letting me borrow this and read it before you.
  • Jennifer
    I'm enjoying this atmospheric supernatural story, and I like the magic system and folklore feel. It seems as though the big "villain" has been introduced, so I anticipate that the plot will start to move more in the third volume, and the side-characters will become more developed. My opinion about the romance (?) is still up in the air. I find the relationship between Chise as slave/guinea pig/student/daughter/eventual wife to Elias's master/scho...

    The following review is based off my own opinions, thoughts and reactions. So in other words brace yourself. *There may be inappropriate words such as curse words.* You have been advised in advance.* Heaven...I'm in heaven...Heaven, I'm in heaven! My prayers for a delicious book two have been answered and I'm completely in love! However, not as in love as Chise and Elias! Oh ho ho, I have so much to tell you, my lovely bookworms! For starters, ho...
  • Jessica (HighFantasyFanatic)
    I freaking love this Manga!!!!Amazing progression of the plot in this one + so many cats.
  • Cherry (_forevermint)
    Ever since I heard there was going to be a prequel anime for this manga, I've been dying to continue the series. I loved this volume! Chise was steadfast and strong and I love how she doesn't waver despite people trying to sway her opinions and abusing her tragic history to manipulate her. She's amazing. Also, we get to meet the faerie queen in this volume which is just all sorts of awesome
  • María
    El problema de que acabe en medio de la acción es que cuando me compre el 3 dentro de mil años YA NO ME ACORDARÉ DE QUÉ ESTABA PASANDO.
  • Julias Wunderland
    Manchmal ist nicht ganz klar wer was sagt, aber ich mag die Geschichte. Und dieser Cliffhanger ist wirklich böse!
  • Bre
    I really like this series. I feel like it's supposed to be romantic but it comes off as more mystery as the main character learns more about becoming a mage and solving problems.
  • Thetravelingpanda
    OMG! This volume was even better than the first one! I am so mad that it ends on a cliffhanger like this one (no spoilers I promise)! I was a bit sad that the relationship between Chise and Elias was not getting a bit more developped but it was good also to see Chise discover her new powers and the world behind them.
  • Sylwia (Wish Fulfillment)
    This sequel progresses well from the first volume, keeping up the same clever writing and enjoyable plot. The characters continue to be engaging, even as we're introduced to more in this volume. I'm really enjoying this manga! (Also, I didn't see anything problematic in this one, so my previous worries were unfounded.)
  • Nidah (SleepDreamWrite)
    Uh oh that ending. This volume was really good. Like that the characters keep getting interesting. And that cover art. Same with the last one too. Seems with each volume the art keeps getting better and better. Oh and the story obviously. Liking this series so far.
  • Becky Loader
    Oh, my, gosh. These are like popcorn!!! Bring on the next one!
  • Jenna
    This volume did not keep me interested. I have the next two but they are due back soon. I might hang on to them and try the third. Might end up dnf-ing the whole entire series though.
  • Kameron Mitchell
    Less interesting than book one, but we met more characters and developed the plot some. Onward!
  • Shala
    The story begins to expand beautifully in this volume! Can't wait to dig into Volume 3!
  • Olivia
    That ending!!!
  • Miya
    I‘m so happy I stumbled upon this series on goodreads. I loved the second manga as much as I loved the first. The story is amazing and the drawings are simply wonderful.
  • Amber-Leigh
    Interesting. Still not sure where the story is going overall, but I'm happy enough to be along for the ride.
  • Melisa
    I love this story. I came to love it first through it marvelous anime. Wanted to read the manga to see if I can find differences or miss any part of the story. It is great to rediscover the world I fell in love with.
  • To
    Jetzt also schon Band 2 und alles ist sehr durchwachsen. Die Story-Arc um die Katzen wird zumindest sehr zufriedenstellend zu einem Ende gebracht und man erhält einige Informationen darüber, was Chise nun wirklich ist und welche Rolle sie in Zukunft spielen wird.Danach folgt dann ein Kapitel, welches einfach nur ein paar neue Charaktere einführen soll. Es war alles ziemlich belanglos und hat auch nicht sehr viel Spaß gemacht es zu lesen.Zum A...
  • Chelsea Gouin
    Volume 2 continues to expand the world with Chise taking on the blight! Elias is taking care of his sleigh beggy but other supernatural creatures are noticing her untapped potential too. Tatiana and Oberon, Queen and King of the faeries make a visit and the priest from down the valley pops up with another mission for the pair. Elias is neither fae nor human but Chise seems to be changing him...did he have a heartbeat?!? It is turning out to be su...
  • Alexis U
    a solid 4 star read. I really liked it!This volume gets a bit more into just how inhuman Elias is, which is something I suspected but wasn't very well-established in the first volume.The thing that is kind of annoying about this series so far is it just stops on cliffhangers, so it doesn't feel like a single volume contains one full story arc. it's kind of a cheap way to keep people reading, but luckily I'm interested enough to want to continue a...
  • Mallory Farnham
    I like the concept of this series but the story is just so fragmented, it jumps all over the place. The romantic storyline is pretty much nonexistent so I’m not sure why they bothered to set it up....🤔
  • Shaikhah
    I loved it and I want to know what will happen next
  • Jana
  • Rod Brown
    Oooooh! Doggy! Dogs make good things even better. Awesome final panel too.
  • Jockum
    Med lovord om att den första skulle kunna nå fyra stjärnor, så kommer nästa del inte lika högt upp på listan. Handlingen kunde vara lite starkare eller röra sig lite snabbare framåt.
