What is the ancient magus bride about
The Ancient Magus Bride, Vol. 1 by Kore YamazakiOK, this... is what I get for browsing Amazon after midnight when the gremlins are abroad, but anyway, this one is intriguing. I was looking for a counter to the latest very shonen thing Id read, and this was.
Someone once said the two ur-models for romance are Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and this tale falls squarely into the second camp. It is also, I suspect, informed by the The Tale of Genji romance model, less known in the West. Some other reviewers who are having very 21st-Century freakouts over the age and (so far) power differentials of the two protagonists may be unaware of the latter thousand-year-old Heian classic novel, dunno. (Ive actually read Genji, ages ago in translation.)
Shall not attempt to describe the plot so far, but the mode is on the whole gentle, with dark edges. I liked it enough to consider buying Vol. 2 for my tablet, well see.
Much later: have just read this through to the end of Vol. 9, and found that the anime tracks the manga very well throughout, even, mostly, the ending at episode 24 which I had incorrectly suspected to be an anime add-on. Vol. 9 does go on one scene farther, which starts a new arc. Vol. 10 is not yet at my library. Still very pretty artwork.
