Although he attends the Royal Magic Academy in the Kingdom of Wenias, Sable has the worst grades in the entire school. As he has no memories of his time before attending the institution, when Headmaster Albus tasks him with a special training regimen in the south, Sable eagerly accepts it. Alongside the Dawn Witch, Roux Cristasse; Holt, a human girl with antlers; and Kudd, a lizard Beastfallen, Sable must establish a village of witches in a region where anti-witch sentiment remains strong.

During their journey, the quartet avoids former members of the Dia Ignis Arbiters—a group of witch hunters notorious for murdering witches and civilians alike. Five years ago, their organization was disbanded and given amnesty with the end of the war between the Church and witches, but their members still linger and are ready to capture any mages they come across.

Thankfully, with Roux's Staff of Ludens, the "witch-eater," and Sable's unlimited supply of magic, the group may be able to accomplish their mission for Albus. If not, Sable's memories of magic and the academy will be taken away, and he will be left with nothing to guide him to the silver-haired mage who first rescued him.

Even though this anime is actually a spin-off of "Grimoire of Zero" which I haven't seen yet, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Story was quite interesting, but a bit confusing at times as well. Sometimes the plot moved slowly and then picked up the pace signficantly so I lost track of what was going on. Well to tell you the truth, the plot was mostly driven by characters involved in it, in my opinion.

The three main characters Sayb, Hort and Kuddo are all very likeable. Of the three I liked Kuddo the most. He was very level-headed and had such humourous reactions to different situations they ...

I won't lie, I mainly stuck around because of the characters I'm already familiar with and like. This arcs story isn't that bad nor is it anything special, but it's at least something that was consistent and seemed thought out. I would probably say where it shined most was the character progression of the Tyrant. The big thing I didn't like about this arc is the excessive amount of fan service. Like, can you not with the lolis? Don't get me wrong, they did it with Zero in the first arc too, but it was more...palatable? It served more as a tool for comedy, where ...

I saw a lot of people complaining about the wrong reasons on this anime, mainly because the story being "way to fast not explaining anything" wich I honestly appreciated, since you know, this isn't the first show in this universe, there's no need to explain everything again, if you want to understand go watch Zero Kara... Also I saw a lot of people complaining about the amount of scenes with exposures, wich honestly what did you guys expected? Didn't you look at the cover? This is Japan, you should've learned by now...

Despite all this is this anime good? Hell no, this anime is awful, the ...
