Storyline

Chise Hatori is 15. She, for some reason, sees otherworldly creatures and acts as a magnet for them. Because of that, her life is ruined and even her closest relatives, as the only thing she can rely on, are disappearing one after another. Chise, being absolutely alone, even thinks about ending her life. However, instead of resorting to suicide, she meets a person that suggests her selling her life to someone who would take her in. And Chise does find a person that wants to buy her--Elias. After some time, the two are teleported to Elias' home. Warm, quiet and extremely cozy--that home is everything Chise has ever dreamed of. Now Chise becomes Elias' apprentice, who is a very respected mage. As a mage, Chise will now have to find out more about the world she is afraid of, about the world that ruined her life and took everything, which was important to her. Written by Scientiiaa

Its Really Interesting
2 February 2018 | by chelseajmbeleharSee all my reviews

So far it sticks really close to the manga, which I am also reading and I love it. The characters are all so individually important you don't notice until you final something new about them and then you fall in love with them all over again. The relationship between Elias and Chise is very interesting to watch because its not your traditional roles but you can still see those moments in them. The only way to describe the visual effects is breath taking. Despite being so very colorful this anime really touches on sensitive subjects and raw emotions to a new level that I've never seen an anime or a manga do before. So that is why I give it and its OVAs 10 stars and I can't wait to see what happens next!!
