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 read more

Well, well, it looks like not a lot like this anime, in fact nearly every review about this anime wasn't very good to say the least. Not surprising when you have an anime about what suppose to "The Dawn of the Witch," problem was the story plot was all over the place and there wasn't a main character that this anime or the manga to be identified with....of course you can say that Sable was the main character, but the problem was, he isn't, in fact the character to be identified with was simply split within the 3 protagonist of this story plot, most read more

This show in a summary: when your original work is presented much better than the one that came after it.

There have been cases of authors already well-versed in their own series to try something new, and that is always appreciated in a sea of many other works to try what works and what doesn't work. This is exactly the case for author Kakeru Kobashiri and her famed work that is the Grimoire of Zero, already having won the Grand Prize in the 20th Dengeki Novel Awards held in 2013 (alongside novelist Chiaki Kisaki for Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens, which spawned Satelight's Winter 2018 anime), and then read more

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 read more
