The Ancient Magus' Bride (Mahō Tsukai no Yome)

The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Mahō Tsukai no Yome)

Today a ‘first grand promotional video’ of The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Mahō Tsukai no Yome) began streaming on its official website. Some of the cast members include Atsumi Tanezaki as Chise Hattori, Ryota Takeuchi as Elias, Kouki Uchiyama as Ruth and Aya Endo as Silver.

The Ancient Magus’ Bride’s Mangaka, Kore Yamazaki wrote the story for the anime. At Wit Studio, Norihiro Naganuma (Yowamushi Pedal movie) is in the director’s seat for this production while Aya Takaha (Psycho-Pass) is doing the scripts. Character designs are the work of Hirotaka Katō (Empire of Corpses) while Bamboo (Empire of Corpses) handles background art.

Here is a description of the manga according to Seven Seas, who publishes the manga in North America:
Chise Hatori has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the same again.
The man is a “magus,” a sorcerer of great power, who decides to free Chise from the bonds of captivity. The magus then makes a bold statement: Chise will become his apprentice – and his bride!”

Mahō Tsukai no Yome: Hoshi Matsu Hito (The Ancient Magus’ Bride – The Man Who Waits for Stars) will tell an original story from before Chise meets the Magus. As we find out more news, like a premiere date, we will let you know.

We all love the weapons of Sword Art Online and so does the team of Blacksmiths and craftsmen at Man At Arms. Man At Arms are no strangers to AnimeFanatika as we have previously shared videos on how they recreated Fairy Tail from Erza Scarlet’s sword and armor as well as Inuyasha’s Tessaiga. They recently recreated Asuna’s rapier, Wind Fleuret and today we show you not only that video but also how they recreated Kirito’s Elucidator. Man At Arms we salute you for bringing anime weapons into the real world. Ganbatte Minna!

Here are the video links, to watch the Man At Arms team at work, just follow the links:

Instant Ramen

On a rainy day when you don’t feel like cooking an elaborate meal instant ramen might be a cure. We have seen Naruto from the Naruto anime cook these up and this is a great way to make a meal if you life alone or are in a hurry. It can take a few minutes to prepare.

Here is a nice recipe of soy sauce flavour ramen with Chicken and pork broth. The extra ingredients are scallions, boiled eggs and sausage, but virtually anything can be used to pimp up an instant ramen dish. Please follow our link: http://bit.ly/easy-instant-ramen-recipe
