Lullaby, and Good Night...

After mistakenly putting Elias under a sleeping spell, Chise can't find a way to wake him up! She turns to Angie for help, and brews a potion meant to undo the spell--but the process is so exhausting, Chise ends up falling asleep herself. Upon entering a dream world, she crosses paths with the person she least expected: Cartaphilus. But something'

I absolutely adore this series. It's full of just the right mix of fantasy, romance, mystery, comedy ... I can't sing its praises enough. And I'd be lying if I didn't say some of the lessons Chise and others learn didn't make me think about myself and my world.

I just want this to go on forever.

The Ancient Magus, Vol. 7 continues where Vol. 6 left off on it's cliffhanger.

As always the artwork is superb and in classic Yamazaki style we're kept guessing in this installment. This volume centers on the alchemist college and meeting some of Renfred's colleagues there. The dragons are pulled in and so is Chise's past. It's a whole tangled mess of excitement and unexpected twists by the end.

This was enjoyable.

Rated: 3 Stars

We first meet Chise, chained by the neck and wrists being passed over to her new owner, a bone-headed mage whose name she learns later is Elias. A penniless orphan sold on the black market she learns about herself, the magical world filled with fairies and other fantastical creatures as well as what it means to be a part of a family. Her new life as a mage's apprentice is just the beginning as it comes with the secondary

How I love old Bonehead and Chise! <3

This volume read like two separate halves - the first half I found to be quite slow and a bit pointless really but the second half was full of action and that cliffhanger!! Damn it...I’m going to have to pick up vol. 8 now.

Still good, but kind of cluttered?
All of the alchemists talking about magic and alchemy differences feels very info dumpy. And it's making me a tad bored.

I prefer Elias' house setting, and nature - calmer times. But we will see where it goes.

Just kinda meh, sadly. The real detriment to manga is their over-reliance on cliffhanger chapters to keep you coming back. I understand that most of these are published in magazines originally, but it's still kind of frustrating to come back to a series and have to think "wait...what's happening?"

This series continues to be little more than an exposition dump with characters. Although this time around you did get some fairly interesting character interactions and they finally seem to be laying g
Die Beziehung zwischen Elias und Chise ist in diesem Band irgendwie seltsam. Vor allem am Anfang ist es etwas seltsam und creepy.

WTF with that ending?! Ruth is my absolute favorite and I want one!!! This series is quickly finding its way to the top of my favorite manga series list. There is so much happening and it's original and magical and new to me. I want it to never stop. Also, who do we have to wait nearly a YEAR for the next one?!?! NOT HAPPY!!!

Solid 3.5/3.74 star read.

This review applies to most of my current Ancient Magus' Bride reads, so prepare for a copy and paste to each.

While the story started off with a lot of explanation to the world and the magic, this series has delved into the confusion of itself, whether that be due to the story writing styles of Japan or translations, as this is a feature I notice in many manga.

There is an emphasis on unnamed issues, feelings, and peoples which can leave the reader confused and distanced

Slow, fractured beginning; dramatic ending. This volume disappointed me at first. I realize I read the last volume months ago, but the beginning fifth or so of this volume was confusing with frequent flashbacks interspersed with vague descriptors and exposition. Only after the dream sequence did the volume begin to have a driving focus. Then the widened cast of characters were no longer confusing or distracting, but all dedicated to moving the plot forward. Yamazaki successfully tied most of the ...more

The series is awesome but I didn't like this volume as much as the last one. There's a conclusion to the cliffhanger of the vol. 6 but it's a bit of let-down because although Chise says some wise things and so on, it felt a bit non-resolve. Maybe they come back to it later, dunno.

The new arc starts somewhat confusingly but looks to be interesting case with good chances for characters to grow. Chise keeps taking herself to the limits of her strength despite everybody warning her against it and I

Elias is in his crazy demon form and has Chise locked in his grip, refusing to let go. This is a great moment for Chise's character as she is mature enough to assess how Elias is feeling, even if he can't. She's able to summon her staff and save herself, just as Ruth shows up to help. She also brews a potion to help a sick Elias but over exerts herself...again...and then is connected in the Dreamscape with the Alchemist for a bit of uncomfortable background. Also, some dragons get kidnapped and ...more

I spent the first half of this volume trying to remember who the hell all these dozens of characters are and what's going on. By the time the dragon auction began, I felt myself getting drawn in again, but just barely. Maybe I should wait until I can read two or three volumes at a time before continuing with this series.

A volume of action and drama that shows how much the characters, especially Chise, have grown and developed. The art continues to be top notch, and the pacing was brisk and riveting. Remains a favorite ongoing manga.

Although the plot does progress a bit in this volume, it feels very much like a filler installment. The first half of the volume is wrapping up the storyline from volume 6 and not much else. The second half has a new plot development, but I don't know, it felt very slow and not as much fun. Still, the art is exquisite and the characters are fun. I'm hoping that volume 8 will be more fun, making this just a typical bridge volume--not great, but not bad.

An excellent read, am eagerly anticipating more!
With each new volume of this series, I am again amazed at the beautiful artwork and lovely storytelling. My only complaint is that these volumes don't come out soon enough! Highly recommended.

This is the seventh volume in the Ancient Magus Bride series. This was another very well done volume in this series. I continue to enjoy this series a lot.

In this volume Chise works a potion to help wake Elias up after she accidentally spells him to sleep. Then Chise and Elias receive word that Cartaphilus has stolen some dragon hatchlings. Chise calls on contacts from her past to find out where the hatchlings are being auctioned off. However things get out of control when the dragon steals magi

:( Chise's continual drain of energy continues... leaving with a cliffhanger for Vol 8! I thought the tie-back to Chise's personal auction was interesting (although sad; I really felt for the little dragon) but I think having all the mages was a bit confusing. I'm also not super keen on one of them being named Adolf - with the other names so carefully crafted and interestingly tied to the Holocaust (the main horrible mage is Josef) it seems odd now that a supposed positive character is named Ado ...more

Read my full review over on The Purrfect Yarn.

Kore Yamazaki's mystical manga is absolutely spellbinding, and this volume is no exception.

As I've found with the previous volumes, my favourite moments are the sweet, everyday interactions between the characters so I really enjoyed the section where Chise met up with Angelica and her family.

While the artwork is beautiful, it's the strong thread of story and the developing relationship between Chise and Elias that keeps me coming back to this seri

I like this series so much, I decided I really wanted to support the English language publishers and so this is the first volume in the series that I've actually bought rather than gotten from the public library.

It feels like a very in-between volume, starting in the middle of one story and ending in the middle of a new story. I do like that it brought back the auctioneer character from volume 1 and he wasn't a villian, but just another character in the story.

I'm not sure how keen I am on the
