Manga Review: The Ancient Magus' Bride, Volume 3, by Kore Yamazaki

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Seven Seas
Release Date: December 2015
Volumes: 6+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 2. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:

An Ancient Evil

Chise has come face to face with the person responsible for the brutal killings at a nearby churchyard--and to her shock, it's someone she recognizes from her visions of the tragedy at Ulthar! Appalled by the realization that the alchemist who wrought such horrors is still up to his old tricks, Chise must act to stop him. But in order to control her dangerous powers as a sleigh beggy, she ll need all the help she can get.


We see the conclusion from the previous volume, and move on to meet a couple new characters and creatures.
After the big ordeal, Elias disappears for a few days, to recover. Chise grows impatient, and sees him, even when he protests. This brings on a bad memory for her, though, of her life before him, but this is mostly a tease. Then it moves on to a couple single plot-lines.
This series is slow and subtle, but I’m enjoying it. It’s not really sticking, though, and I’m finding I have little to say about it. It’s pretty, and I’m liking how the plot is growing, and the relationship between Chise and Elias is getting deeper.
I look forward to reading more.
