No longer a slave but now an magus’ apprentice, Chise Hatori has been introduced to people and creatures of many sorts, including fae royalty. We start where we left off with the King of Cats and the blight haunting the cats’ home. As the story goes on, she learns about more of the cruel effects of being a sleigh beggy, a person who can generate and use tremendous magic. This second volume of The Ancient Magus’ Bride, by Kore Yamazaki, continues one story line and shows more of the side effects of being a sleigh beggy.
I first learned about The Ancient Magus’ Bride anime from akidearest, but I decided I would watch it when it becomes available on a platform I have access to. Then I saw the manga at my library and checked it out. The recommendation I heard for the anime was that it gives you a sense of wonder and tells you just what you need to know for current events and feel there’s still more to the fantasy world, and the manga delivers on that too.
