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.

Here is my review of this anime in 2022!

Story (8)
The story is about a man who doesn't remember anything before He enrolled in the magic academy. He can't control his magic power like others and is almost emotionless. The reason for that is in the middle of the episode where you need to watch it by yourself. After that, He's going to a small village with his new friend and that's where the journey begins.

Art (8)
The art for this anime is good. I love the effect especially when they meet Zero for the first time. But sadly I don't really like the background that they ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

--- original lenguage: Portuguese --- --- additional lenguage: English ---

English: I watched this anime with very low expectations, and it was for this very reason, it had: nothing innovative, generic story, protagonist who even had a lot of potential for this side "forgotten past" but became just an empty shell, secondary characters without personality and with the past very poorly explained
Unfortunately I have nothing good to comment on this anime but I will not be hypocritical to the point of saying that it was not good to the point of getting a few laughs rarely
anyway, anime 5/10 and honestly deserved at most a 4.

PT-BR: ...
