The manga could very well have ended right here, and consider itself an entirely self-contained and deeply rewarding story of coming to love yourself.

Yamazaki-san seem to design the arc's climax as a season finale in mind. (Which given that anime version had already started during it probably was part of the intent.) But I'm very glad that Magus' Bride is continuing on. It is such a wonderful and moving manga and I want see Chise who's now fully gained the will to live grow even more and overcome the curse of the Sleigh Buggy.

I will say this volume was both disturbing and tense enough that what was presented made for a very satisfying end to this arc. I also feel as if we haven't seen even a tiny percent of the power Elias is capable of in his true form either, not even close. I'm more curious about him than anyone else and hopefully that gets addressed at some point down the line.

Secret desire: Considering the themes, I want Elias and Chise as part of a crossover collab in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. We need an anime collab in that game, and these two would be perfect considering the emphasis on magic.

Does the manga have the whole spoiler[wedding scene] from the anime finale? I enjoyed Magus Bride as a whole but I remember that scene feeling a bit tacked on in the anime.
