Zero

Familiar of Zero Review

Ok everybody remember Inuyasha. It was a good show with some memorable story about a girl that gets sucked into the past to help a half demon collect shards of a magical jewel.

Familiar of Zero has a very similar premise – A nobel girl who’s studying magic ( but can never summon anything past a explosion and given the title of Zero Louise accidentally transports a young Japanese boy called Seito from our world. What was originally considered the most useless thing ever. But through a early revelation shows us that he is the   Gandálfr or God’s left Hand. When in battle he can use any item as long as its a proper weapon.

What it starts as a little cookie cutter at first . Every character is very cliqued but as the story progresses it shows something most shonen stories don’t usually have. A serious amount of larger world building .

Nobles are people connected to a royal family that can use magic. These people at first have a high sense of superiority treating the non magic users which they call plebeians worse than dirt throughout the show. This is shown to contrast with to the Familiar and Summoner Contract between the 2 major characters  Seito and Louise. It the beginning of the show . she treats him like the worst piece of garbage ever from exploding him to whipping him with a horse whip. but as the relationship grows they start to care for each other.(although the beatings still are a part of the jokes).

The first part of the show focuses on how the magic world try to recover “ancient powerful items” to be used for evil purposes. But the twist in the show gives it a nice sense of grounding.

This series has 4 seasons showing the relationship between magic users and non magic users.

Would I suggest it for people- yes its enjoyable with nice animation which doesn’t go over board on comedy or action

Later he learns the only way to rescue his childhood friend is to become friends and use the magic of the Trinity Seven the most powerful magic users in the school with his own power of Lord Demon Candidate. The offers some great comedic moments mixed in with some good magic battles . But outside the typical Harem story the elements that make it most unique is the magic .

Magic in this universal is all based on the opposite of our most negative trait . For example Kasuga most negative trait is he is a massive pervert. So he soon realizes his magic and power is based on control.

Overall the story is fun fast paced with a good sense of humour . Quite enjoyable for a Harem show in today’s current Anime season
