Following Saito's heroic actions in the War with Albion in season two, Saito and Louise return to Tristain, only to have the runes which bind Saito and Louise disappear. Saito and Louise struggle with a relationship no longer defined as Master and Familiar, as they search for an Elf who has the power to restore the dead to life, and may hold the key to understanding Saito's loss of the Gandalfr's power.

The worst season of the four seasons, this was just frustrating, i was just bored of Louise and Saito.

The story is almost the same, with the difference that they are looking for an elf that saved Saito from his death and revived him and because of this he lost the rune that tied him with Louise and because of this Louise starts to be more insecure than she was, and makes this so f**king annoying, is desperating and makes you bored from their relationship and want them to end their s**t, is like they hate each other even more in their love-hate attempt of comedy, read more

I don't care how well a formula works, when it's repeated three times with no changes, it screws over suspension of disbelief. Although enjoyable with some fist-pumping moments, the third season is definitely a letdown from the previous seasons and I hope they make a fourth season just to repent for the mess they created here. I will start out with the small stuff because I want to save the story until the end.

Art is the same as the last two seasons, it's nicely rounded out, and for being a cute/ecchi anime, the fighting scenes are better than expected, giving it a score of 7.

In contrast to the previous two seasons, which were somewhat enjoyable, the third season was the most disappointing of all for multiple reasons. It manages to start off well however there were many possibilities that were available but were infrequently explored which could've potentially made this season much better or so. Unlike the first season, the third season seemed to not focus on the plot as much. It seems as though there was an excessive amount of romance cliches which strongly detracted from the season, such as the overly emotional and volatile tsundere (ex : Louise zapping Saito as comic relief), ecchi fanservice (ex : read more

[Note: This review encompasses all four seasons of Familiar of Zero. This is also a rewrite of a previous review in an attempt to simplify or cut back excessive material.]

Familiar of Zero was J.C. Staff’s fantasy action show produced and released in small, little seasons throughout the years between 2006 and 2012. Combined, the entire show is 49 episodes long. Now this would be fine if they had interesting, entertaining content to fill up this 20 hour timeslot.


We open in a magic school in a generic fantasy setting, where a magician named Louise is not very good at magic. Since she can only produce small read more

Anime: Shakugan no Shana
Both Shakugan no Shana and Zero no Tsukaima have very similar relationships between the main hero and heroine, even their appearances and personalities are very similar. The personalities of secondary heroines are also almost identical in both animes. Both have the heroine and hero fighting side by side, with heroine controlling a stronger power and the hero acting as a bodyguard most of the time.

Anime: Seikoku no Dragonar
These anime are almost the same plot but the roles are reversed as the girl is the one summoned in Seikoku no Dragonar. Both Anime shared the same style of comedy and have great animation. If you enjoyed zero no tsukaima you will also like this. :)
