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 as 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.

So it looks like I'll be the first person to write a review for this one.
First of all, I really enjoy shounen ai/yaoi anime so of course I liked this, but I will be objective.

Story: 4
The story takes place in a magical world where only some people can use magic. If I'll say more there will be spoilers .

Art and animation: 8
The art is splendid. Everything is colorful and beautiful done, especially the drinks.
The animation is mediocre to bad(the characters barely move) and this might be a problem at first, but you'll get used.

Sound: 7
Opening is good, I liked it.
The voice read more

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, read more

Just wanted to throw in my humble two cents.
To be fair, I think you really have to look at the context in which this anime is created and the entire shounen-ai industry. BL anime in itself is quite rare (as compared to, oh i dunno, harem and/or ecchi types??) and a BL anime with special attention to animation style is exceedingly rare. But given a typical plot line of a BL manga (no spoilers here), whatever is lackluster in the plot or the characters is really made up for in the animation quality. Cmon, this is a BL anime that's not only HD, but read more

This is has shounen-ai genre, and a short anime (4 mins or so). So, in terms of story, I think this show got a great plot for a short anime. It has the theme, the opening, the problems, the climax, and the solutions. Not just some weird, random story lines.

Not the best if you are looking for some great looking guy, since this is shounen-ai. But, I do love how they do the background. It has some oil or water colours feelings, and simply gorgeous to be seen. It was kind of weird to see the movement/animation though, but still refreshing to see something so read more
