Due to his father's disappearance, Itsuki Iba has to take over the family business: a magician dispatch service. Their family employs countless magicians and other supernatural beings in order to send them out to help those who need magical assistance. As a leader, Itsuki now has to be tough, commanding, and reliable, but there's one problem, he's a coward. Also, in order to run a successful business, he must connect with his employees, which is more difficult than it seems due to his personality. But not only does he have to deal with his own employees, he also has to deal with those who threaten the family business.

This anime takes a lot of risks by relying so heavily on exposition. It has such a rich index of lore and backstory that it ends up having to explain so many aspects in such a short time that it doesn't really do a great job of explaining them all. For example, one of my biggest questions was "does the number of legions a Solomon demon rules an indicator of how strong it is?" Or even "what's the difference between Glam Sight and Glam Sight +" (you know what I mean in EP 23.) The design on the magics and especially the Solomon demons ...

Rental Magica is a hard series to review and rate because, for the most part, it's a good series, but one beset by baffling creative decisions that may or may not affect your enjoyment of the series.

Preliminary (12/24 eps)
Came after watching a reels on it. I gotta stop thinking that every mc with eye powers is like gojo.
The amount of shit the main character is made of and comes out from his mouth is unbearable. FUKIN good for nothing and makes every job hard for other characters. Everything would have gone smooth if the mc didn't existed. The mage girl is alone enough lol.

The anime storytelling is fuked up.Nothing is explained well. just don't watch it unless you want to see a bland mc with no powers but always says "he will save every girl 🤡".
Lol there's nothing to talk about more ...
