Synopsis

Even though they shared the same bus every morning and sat next to each other in class, Ayaka Kagari, the "Princess" of Tougetsu High School, was nothing more than an unreachable idol for Honoka Takamiya. The horde of students who worshipped the "Princess" was merely a nuisance to Honoka, living his lazy, regular high school life.

Everything seemed perfectly normal until, one day, Honoka is attacked out of the blue by a mysterious witch. To his surprise, Ayaka saves his life, revealing herself to be a fire witch on a covert mission to protect Honoka.

From that fateful day, the ordinary life of Honoka is turned upside down as he is thrown into the war between the Workshop Witches, who strive to protect the citizens, and the Tower Witches, who desire to steal a power hidden within him.

First of all, its not for everyone.
I read other peoples feelings here and concluded the most obvious thing:
People see shows in such different ways that its super hard do please.
I like this show, and i rewatched, and im kind of hard to please if i say so. But something in this show, the time comic idk, it makes me feel at easy.
Its not a show to be high on, or to remember forever, dont get me wrong. But im not bored watching it, and thats remarcable nowadays. I think this come from the peace it gives me, the comic time and how good the design ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime was very unpredictable. I love that it doesn't go into the normal cliché of romance, but gives you enough to root for the MC. The story felt all too empty for me to get into.

You figure out the mystery as you go along and enjoy a tall, perfect woman care for this smaller, nobody MC. I feel like the MC deserves more love from the other characters of this show besides the heroine and the younger sister. Season 2 isn't ...

It’s amazing how a show with such an interesting premise could turn out to be so boring. I watched this show because I remember reading the manga and liking it, but now that I think about it, I can’t recall what happened in that manga at all.

Mixed:
- Our ...
