Mahoutsukai no Yome (The Ancient Magus’ Bride) T.V. Media Review Episode 17

There’s power in words.

Ready for a good ole siblings spat? Stella and Ethan are constantly at odds with one another. This is typical of siblings, yet the words Stella used caused a stir. In the heat of the moment she claimed to no longer have a need for her brother. Her words were heard and received by not just her brother, but to Ashen Eye as well. Ethan, runs off with those words filled with magic. Now Stella finds herself in a world where nobody remembers her little brother.

Stella’s family may have forgotten, but she’s not resting easy until Ethan is returned. Running about the town she bumps into, Chise. She’s desperate for help and willing to pay any price. Elias, strikes a deal with her. In return they will help find her lost brother. Finding Ashen Eye by normally means won’t be happening today. Ready for a little give and take? Chise is a queen and her beloved subjects are willing to exchange knowledge for a little magic. Once Ashen Eye is found the true trickery begins. He wants to play a game. Elias is snatched away and hidden along side, Ethan. Chise, must now use her nose to find them. Time to go beast mode! Ashen Eye’s previous gift came in handy after all. After tracking down their scents everyone is reunited. Finally these two siblings can make up and go home together.

Yay, I’m officially caught up with this show. Now if only I could do the same with Black Clover. Soon, hopefully… Anyhow, episode 17 was the actual Christmas episode. The lesson taken away here is the importance of family. Something Elias doesn’t quite get. What little time he spent with Ethan showed him how important one’s family is. There’s just a uniqueness being surrounded by those closest to you. Anyways, let’s keep on moving forward. Enjoy the reunion!
