Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho Review — C

A tiger mercenary accompanies a loli mage on a journey.

I always enjoy fantasy shows, and this was no exception. It’s an interesting world and I mostly like the relationship between the two main characters.

However, it often felt very forced. Events would occur just because they were convenient for the plot (and it was very obvious that this was the case). Many of the characters seemed to fare very poorly at logical thinking and would switch allegiances at the drop of a pin. It felt like they made the characters to fit the plot and not the plot to fit the characters. For example, Thirteen. His choices felt extremely forced. Same with the runaway witch. And the wolf guy. Actually, both Zero and the Tiger did a lot of things that made no sense too. And don’t even get me started with the witches and the army. All these people put together don’t have the intelligence of a little child.

Also, a main theme of the show was how humans treat witches poorly and witches treat humans poorly and everyone treats beast people poorly. None of this made any sense. This was a story about discrimination by someone who really did not appear to understand discrimination.

Still, it was mostly an enjoyable watch, if just to see the relationship between the mercenary tiger and the loli witch.

  • Storytelling – D – Little logical consistency.
  • Voice – C – Fairly generic fantasy world.
  • Characters – C – Like the main two, but no one has much consistency.
  • Attention Grab – B – I finished it without much trouble.
  • Production – C – Looks fine. Not too impressed with the voice acting.
  • Overall – C
