Synopsis

Night Wizard. A term given to those whose mission is to protect the world from impending darkness. Renji Hiiragi is one such Night Wizard, who is constantly called on missions, even though all he wants is to be able to go to school and graduate.

Okay, guys! I wanted to re-do this review too, since I finished this series some time ago.

Night Wizard in no way a great anime. But it somehow ended up as one of my favorites and for one little reason: it's so simple. The plot is a straight forward one that is reminiscent of older anime where Yandere characters were but a far, far away thing and loli was not a genre of anime. Where it was the hero versus the bad guy on a mystical quest. Night Wizard is exactly that.

The art in Night Wizard, although sometimes inconsistent (although quite rarely), is very nice. While the character designs are somewhat generic, they are done nicely and with style so that you read more

Honestly Night Wizard is one of those anime that just fades from memory and becomes extremely obscure. There really isn't much in this show that is unique and really the only reason I even kept watching it instead of dropping it halfway through was because of the main character, Elis, who I just found really enjoyable to watch. Aside from her and the plot twist that happens around episode 9 and 10, the rest of this show is pretty much your stereotypical "gather the items and save the world" action-fantasy show.

Story - 7/10

It's not really that boring of a plot to have to go and read more

ART SECTION: 7/10

I must say I was surprised. Most fantasy anime really suck in battles but this one had some basic strategy in it. It was not just people screaming and throwing fireballs. Well… most of it was… But several important battles were based on some sort of revelation or sideway trick. Some may call this Deus Ex Machina but I personally expected much less from such a series and thus I liked it. In fact, the battles are the best thing I noticed.

Beyond that, the depiction of the world is a very nice blend of our normal one with that of epic phantasy. Modern read more

the crimson(red) night? The moon? the heroine? it's obvious. Yuka and Elis have similar personalities and how the male protagonist protects the female heroine....The magic are quite similar in a way, except that 11eyes is more newer with it's character design and animation compared to Night wizard, but you'll like both!

Both animes involves magic and fighting. The main protagonist of Fate/Stay Night is somewhat similar to Hiiragi, both having problems with certain women^^. Although Fate/Stay Night is more on the serious side, you'll like it. 
reportRecommended by Zodia
Both play out like a RPG converted into anime.
 
reportRecommended by Claudius
Both anime are collecting jewels or stones (whatever!) to accomplish their mission and they are able to get it every episode! 
reportRecommended by inn0centdem0n
It's a bit of a stretch, but both shows are half fantasy/shounen and half harem/romance, and they both throw in a few epic battles and shocking plot twists that no one could see coming. 
reportRecommended by _eternal
Both have a relatively normal, academic underachiever high school boy with supernatural abilities having to protect a mysterious girl with a mysterious power who is introduced at the beginning of the show. There are plenty of other secondary characters in the show, some of whom are good and some of whom are evil, who have unique powers of their own. The two shows have an extremely similar feel to them.
