For some who have not read Mahoutsukai no Yome / The Ancient Magus’ Bride manga, most would think that this is a spin-off of ?Beauty and the Beast? or an Ecchi theme. Being that the title has a ?bride? on it and that the protagonist is a 16 year old girl, Hatori Chise, an apprentice and bride to a man with a head of a beast (or skull to be specific). So to set things straight, no this is not a spin-off or an ecchi manga, this is a fantasy manga / anime that has a great story, good character development, and a whole lot of magical adventure. See link below on where to watch or download ?Mahoutsukai no Yome: Hoshi Matsu Hito / The Ancient Magus? Bride OVA.
Chise?s story is not your typical happy-childhood-turned-teenage-rebel with a happy ever after ending. Chise had a dark past and all the worse things that can possibly happen to a child, happened to her. She was neglected, abused, and deprived of any kind of warmth or love. However, just as when she thought hope is lost, she encounters this man with a head of a beast named, Elias. She was sold off at a slave auction and Elias obtained her.
Elias turned out to be a magus, a sorcerer who wields great power. He frees Chise from captivity and declares her as his apprentice and bride.
Mahoutsukai no Yome: Hoshi Matsu Hito / The Ancient Magus? Bride OVA is a three-part prequel to Mahoutsukai no Yome manga.
In episode 1, set in the present time, Angelica sends a gift to Chise. It is a story book that she read in the past when she was still alone. Elias and the others wanted to know more about the book so Chise began reading it to them.
But this book brought back terrible memories of her childhood. Chise recalls the strange things she was seeing that others don?t. Others thought she was being difficult or was crazy. This tormented her and forced her to distance herself from other people. ?
