Chiharu Kashima, captain of the Wizard Bureau's Crisis Countermeasures Division, is among a handful of people who can use magic. While frequenting his favorite bar, he is approached by a friendly man named Toyohi Utsumi. Having always dreamt of being a wizard, Toyohi is enthralled by the idea of meeting one. Much to the young Captain's surprise, Toyohi confesses that he has fallen in love with Kashima. While little time has passed, the two begin to spend more time together. Not all is well, however, as Kashima fears that magic is all that he has and Toyohi is only in love with Kashima the Wizard.

I'm going to be honest with you, I started this for its colours. I'm a sucker to pretty colours in anime. This anime hit all the right boxes for me, shounen ai, pretty colour, short, sweet and adorable plot line.

Disclaimer: This is my first review, sorry if it isn't what you were looking for.

Story: 8
Afterall, it is a four episode long anime. You wouldn't expect long elaborate things from it, and it gives you what you should expect. A simple plot line, a clear progression to the end. The story is about two men in a world where some can use magic. Personally, ...

To be honest, I started watching this one just cuz it was BL. What I must say first of all - the ART is Amazing! I was left breathless by the emotions solely from animation itself. I could just talk and talk of how great this anime is drawn. I would suggest to watch this one just for that.

So just go ahead and have this eye candy for yourself :)

Mixed Feelings

First of all, I really enjoy shounen ai/yaoi anime, so, of course I liked this, but I will be as objective as possible for a person to be in these cases.

Story: 4

Art and animation: 8
The art is splendid. Everything is colorful and beautiful done, especially the drinks. It is a pleasure to look at this short anime.

However, the animation is mediocre to bad(the characters barely move) and this might be a ...
