    Every time I start one of the books in this series, I am completely lost. I cannot remember a single thing about what happened in the previous volume. There are just too many characters doing too many things that make almost no sense to me. Even in my clueless state though, I get drawn into the art and the emotion of the story. The next volume promises a new direction for the series that may make it easier for me to recall what's going on. It also helps that I have it on hand and will read it imm Every time I start one of the books in this series, I am completely lost.

    Another dense one, with lots of recurring characters and more backstory. Actually managed to create some sympathy for Josef!

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 title of Ancient Magus' Bride... The Ancient Magus' Bride vol 9 is MAJOR! Chise and Elias have been jockeying with Josef and he doesn't have any compunction about using and abusing anyone to get what he wants. And Chise has agreed to be used. It's pretty horrifying what he wants too... But it serves a purpose, a crazy, outrageous purpose but a needful one. And as a side effect we learn the truth of what happened to Chise with her father and mother. We learn about Cartaphillus and where that name came from and why he's also called Josef. Elias also catches up to Chise with the help of some of their friends! I actually didn't totally understand the end but the outcome was fascinating. What a way to end this whole thing with Josef...! I actually wasn't sure if The Ancient Magus' Bride would have anywhere to go after neutralizing him, but I can see that it forms a totally new beginning. The way Kore Yamazaki sees curses was fascinating, they sure are powerful in this world. I was really intrigued to see Chise's mother play a role in her deal with Josef and her conclusions are pretty sad. I did get a little lost in the chase scene and Chise's plan so the tension was bled out a little and a touch anti-climatic. The details are such though that everything right up to the resolution kept you end the edge of your seat. More than anything you want to understand too. I wasn't a fan of where the story had gone in the volume previous to The Ancient Magus' Bride vol 9. It totally smacked of women manipulating men to get their way. Not that men don't do that too, but why drop to their level? Chise has always been mentally ill though. She's had a traumatic childhood and sought an unhealthy relationship of ownership so while I didn't really like what she did I can say that it feels true to who she is. And what I found was that Elias understood. He got it. He's learning. What other human has had such a profound effect on him... I can count those people on one hand. And I think readers will relate to her decision about her mom and Josef. Who can fault him for his own motivations, even if he lost sight of them himself. The visuals are stunning in The Ancient Magus' Bride vol 9. I LOVE when Elias is forced to take on other forms due to his emotions. They are creepy and vulnerable and other-worldly. It's all quite beautiful. Sometimes I forget this is about the fae too! So meeting my favorite rulers was neat, especially the implications about Elias' changes toward Chise. The art is so EMOTIONAL! I love that about The Ancient Magus' Bride... and this volume seems to be full up on those particular moments. That final moment that includes a central marriage custom was total icing, especially after their reunion. The Ancient Magus' Bride vol 9 ends an era of hardship for Chise and Elias. Both have grown from this challenge! The curse is still present. It's still a part of their lives but things are more hopeful. And with that we start a new arc in volume 10! We get a hint... Chise heads off to college!!! ⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity ⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tension ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Art ______________________ You can find this manga review and many others on my book blog every Monday @ Perspective of a Writer.

    4,5 stars (too hard to decide between 4 and 5...). The currently latest tankobon of Ancient Magus’ Bride wraps one part of the story and hints the beginning of a new arc. Because the story continues, it doesn’t tie all the loose threads but gives a conclusion to Chise’s problem with the dragon’s curse. Majority of the book nine is dedicated to Chise and Cartaphilus/Joseph and their fight. There are also flashbacks that reveal their pasts.

Majority of the book nine is dedicated to Chise and Cartaphilus/Joseph and their fight. There are also flashbacks that reveal their pasts. It was interesting to finally see more of Chise’s childhood and how she became self-loathing and self-destructive girl she was in the beginning of the story. Joseph’s reasons for his actions are also shown and there’s many kinds of pain there. Even though what he has done isn’t right, you understand how he was driven to it. There was great dialogue near the end where Chise tried to reason with Joseph, saying all the pain and blame doesn’t justify bad actions. This volume’s chapters are very tragic. The last chapter has also great scene where Chise recounts how meeting Elias lifted her up from her depression but he wasn’t the only reason and that she still wishes she hadn’t born a sleigh beggy. That’s so realistic because healing takes a long time and in a way, it might never be completely gone. But Chise's come so far and she's realizing it herself too and that's lovely. And throughout this volume Chise said she hasn’t fully forgiven that Elias tried to sacrifice Stella and he needs to understand why it wasn’t okay. It’s a big thing that shouldn’t go away with a snap of fingers. The writing in this series is so good. There’s a lot of black in the panels but everything looks great and crisp. This volume of the Finnish publication has different paper than usual, and while this series hasn’t had any problems with the print, this paper makes blacks and whites contrast even better. Art is nice even though sometimes the big noses (big for usual manga style I mean) bother me a bit but that’s miiiinor detail and just something that sticks my eye, somebody else might not even think about it. Can't wait to see where the story takes Chise next!

    One of the reasons I enjoy The Ancient Magus' Bride was the beginning, how well it explained things going on in the world. Again, the lack of this occurring in this volume may be due to translation errors and not being able to fully grasp what's said in Japanese or the full meaning behind certain words or phrases, but I think it's more the style of manga as a whole.

Chise and Elias are a fascinating pair of people. I loved getting the backstory in this on both Chise and Josef, but getting the backstory intermixed between their arguments and the whole fight cut the action, making it super disjointing to be reading backstory and suddenly be flung back into the main story. This is a common theme of storytelling I've noticed across so many series of manga, and, for me personally, it takes some of the enjoyment out of the story because you're constantly being flung around to multiple times/POVs with no warning. It makes it harder to keep track of what's actually going on in a fight when we're so busy learning about why the villain or hero's backstory by taking crucial moments when the fight could be building. I'll keep reading for sure, but if this kind of jumping around continues to happen, I guess this will be yet another manga series I DNF.

    We have language so that we can talk out our differences. Elias made some bad decisions when trying to save Chise from a deadly curse and ends up losing her for the time being. As she strikes out on her own she must make her own decisions and pay the consequences for each one. As we reach the end to the arc we get glimpses into both Chise and Joseph's past and each character's journey (of which there are still plenty) carries them into the new arc.

    I think overall I enjoyed it, but it was a bit jumbled and jammed packed with stuff that it got a bit confusing at times. It felt like it could have been a bit better if it was spaced out into two volumes instead of one. Still, it's nice to have a conclusion to the arc and I am looking forward to seeing what the next one has to offer.

    Dang. That ending got me in my feels. Shout out to Angelica for her gift and sweet clueless Elias having no idea what to do with it. I am scared for the college arc because I’m bad with arc changes but I love all these characters and I couldn’t leave this unfinished.

    This volume is a bit overstuffed. Volume 10 will launch a new arc, so every character Chise has ever befriended appears in volume 9, she explores both her far and recent past. But because she is also bound with Joseph/Cartaphilus, we are shown his history as well. She also needs to decide if she will mend her relationship with Elias. It's a lot. The artwork, per usual, is beautiful and lush (and, in this volume, horrific), but the action scenes were often confusing. I adore this series and enjoy This volume is a bit overstuffed.

    ~3.5 Stars (Contains very light spoilers.) We finally get to see what happened to Chise in this volume. As she's with Josef, there's a struggle between them. And then Chise is forced to go back and watch her past. We see when she was younger, when things were good... and then when things turned bad. The contrast feels like it should be unbelievable, because you don't want to believe that a person can change so much, can turn in such a way. But it happens.

The way that it's handled, and the way that Chise overcomes it and how she is forced to accept and decide regarding it, was really well done. I appreciated her stance on what happened. And then we see Josef's past. It's all very sad and messy, and it results in an equally messy end. Though I think that Chise comes out of it all right, even for the better in some ways. After all of that, it looks like a new plot line is starting. They're off to a new journey, and I'm intrigued by where it will go next.

    An overstuffed finale to the first story arc that can serve as a season or series finale, depending on what you think of the story so far. There are too many characters jostling for panel time and the boss battle was confusing and underwhelming, but it was worth it to see Chise give orders and take charge of her life for a change. The epilogue/prologue paves the way for more independence for Chise and a healthier dynamic between her and Elias.

    Well, that was disappointing. This "climax" to the first story arc is a horrid mess of rushed ideas, utter confusion, and nonsense. At no point is it clear what's happening. Ashen Eye shows up for...some reason and does...something...that is bad? I don't know. I don't care really. From here we go to a new story arc, but I'm sorry to say I won't be joining the author on this one.

    This volume provides a rather exciting conclusion for the Cartaphilus arc, neatly closing off this part of Chise's journey as she considers making a deal with a monster to cure the Dragon's Curse.

The novel also took the time to finally explore Cartaphilus/Josef and Chise's backstories, finally revealing the reason for Chise's mother's madness, and explaining exactly what Cartaphilus is. While the novel did seem to bring a lot more religion to the series that we have ever seen previously. The way that Chise manages to use her experiences so far to save the day was incredibly dramatic and oh so satisfying. While it remains to be seen if Chise and Elias's relationship can ever truly recover following his betrayal, I am eager to find out. I look forward to seeing where this series will go in the next arc.

    I'd been putting off this volume for a while; it covers similar territory to the end of the anime's first series, which was the bit I liked least. But part of the show's problem was that, like a certain rather higher profile fantasy TV show, it had run ahead of its source texts. So yes, this is still a long way from being my favourite bit of the comic – there's far too much plot, far too little cosily creepy pottering around the English countryside and its magical shadow.

But it wraps up the business of Chise's dragon arm curse much more satisfactorily than the TV version, filling in her background and the vile Cartaphilus' much more substantially, and glossing its moral much more convincingly: that however much we may have been hurt, that doesn't give us licence to hurt undeserving others, and that this includes not heedlessly sacrificing oneself because of refusing to believe we matter to them.

    The previous volume had packed such a punch I just knew nothing would live up to it. I may have waited too long to read this next volume because some of the finer details were fuzzy. But Volume 9 wraps up the long arc of Josef. Chise must face her mistakes and fumbles along the way but not alone..she's managed to pick up some friends and fae that are ready to go to battle for her. And of course Elias.

    Josef has some cry time This was 89% dramatic backstory and then a bit of fluff towards the end.

If you don't care for Josef and his issues then this will be a dull one for you but there is some good content in this for you. We end this volume with a new arc!

    This has been my favorite volume of the manga so far, and fittingly so since it is the climax of the primary storyline. Oddly enough, in the anime, I thought the resolution was unsatisfactory and a bit of a letdown. But for whatever reason, I actually found this resolution in the manga to be perfectly satisfactory, and I really enjoyed reading it. It may be because there's more to the manga, and in the anime this is where the series ended, but I still really enjoyed this volume.

Chise has been kidnapped by Josef/Cartaphilus. Josef wants to use her for her parts and is struggling with a curse of his own. This whole first part is a bit gorey as Josef steal Chise eyes.

    It had been awhile since I read volume 8, and I didn't quite remember what happened that made Chise leave. But even so, this installment felt...awkward. Several times the transitions were pretty much non-existent and it took some figuring out to realize the scene or time had changed, and it just felt...really messy. I liked finally getting Cartaphilus/Josef's story though, and am interested to see how college goes for Chise.

    Elias wanted to break the curse on Chise but she wasn't happy with his methods and it caused a rift between them. And Chise might take a risk of her own by bargaining with Cartaphilus. Quite a bit of background on Cartaphilus. Also Chise. Makes you feel a bit sorry for Cartaphilus but not completely. Great artwork as always and I love how incredible the emotion is in this manga. A chapter ends with this manga and a new one begins in the next. Hoping for a season two of the anime as well.

    This volume is packed with fierce, raw energy and I really felt like I was on a rollercoaster ride of emotions! Ranging from delicate and heartbreaking flashbacks to critical make or break moments of trust, love and friendship, the character development is nothing short of captivating. Chise and Elias take some big lessons away from the fast-paced events that unfold and I'm excited to see where this takes them next!
