Synopsis

In the world of Zero no Tsukaima, a world filled with mythical creatures like elves and dragons, nobles are born with the ability to use magic. One of these nobles is Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière, who attends the Tristain Academy of Magic, the most prestigious magical academy in her home country. The only problem is that every spell she casts ends up in an explosion, leaving her to be mocked as "Louise the Zero" by her peers. So, when the time comes to perform the Familiar Summoning Ritual, which can never be repeated, she wishes for a powerful familiar to prove herself.

In a different world, Saito Hiraga is walking home after having his laptop repaired when a green portal opens up in front of him. He stumbles into it, and he is dragged into Louise's world with no way back. Disgruntled and embarrassed, Louise has no choice but to take him as familiar, and he has no choice but to accept. Will this simple human boy be able to prove himself to be the powerful familiar Louise wished for?

Overview:

Do you like Moe? Do you like S&M? Do you like obnoxious female leads? Boy do I have a series for you!

Plot: 3/10

Familiar of Zero is an anime about an ordinary boy named Saito that is forced to be a magical slave to an obnoxious twat that summoned him from Japan to the far away land of extremely generic fantasy Europe. Here he must learn to adapt to his odd new life and learn about the various types of magic users. I am not going to go really in depth with the plot honestly. It soon becomes a very generic harem show and the read more

I decided to watch Zero no Tsukaima because I wanted a leave-your-brain-out-of-the-equation sort of show, one I could sit back and watch without worrying about a negative outcome or depressing and/or disturbing complications. (Yes, for all my talk about artistic integrity and such, I do watch things for pure and simple fun sometimes.) Zero has most of that, but only to a point, and in the end I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of depth this show manages to pull out of nowhere. I went in expecting another Nanoha, or the first season of Shakugan no Shana all over again, and what I got read more

Warning: Minor spoilers (that don't really ruin much at all), as you'll see the majority within the first two episodes.

This is a review for all four seasons, posted here to warn you of how much pain you might be coming across. I've watched some pretty bad anime but Zero no Tsukaima and its sequels are very high up. I was spurred to finish it by the suggestion of a friend saying it got better and because I can't stop what I've started. Note - This is my first review and my opinion, think of it as you will.

Story 4/10

Zero no Tsukaima-- The Familiar of Zero. With a badass name like that, what could go wrong? Awesome action with a really nice romance subplot, now that's what I like in anime. Which isn't what Zero no Tsukaima has. At. All.

Story: 3
To sum up the entire plot in Zero no Tsukaima in one sentence, it would be, "I feel like it'd be a lot better if I was nine." Me, personally, I'm an over analytical prick who over thinks every little thing. But I feel like someone with the IQ of a potato would still find the plot holes in this swiss cheese.
