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.

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. Characters were established but we had no clue who they are or really what they were supposed to bring to the table. 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.

- The art and animation. There’s a lot of beautiful scenery and background, especially in the latter half of the show, and there is good animation as well, the magic, certain battles, as well as many flying scenes.
