Anime Review: Kaze no Stigma



Yagami Kazuma was originally part of the Kannagi family, a respected family of fire users who have an affinity to fire. However, after being easily defeated by his cousin Ayano and having no talent whatsoever in fire magic, Kazuma is banished and casted out from his family. 4 years later, Kazuma finally returns to Japan, this time as an exceptionally powerful wind user. A series of murders on Kannagi family members have occurred with his arrival. While most of the family including Ayano is convinced Kazuma is the culprit, he honestly isn’t. These events begin an all out war against the Kannagi family, with Kazuma and Ayano right in the middle of it. Based on the novel by Takahiro Yamato.

So I managed to finish Kaze no stigma somehow. I didn’t like the first 20 episodes of the anime. Kept thinking about dropping it. The most annoying part was the soundtrack. I just couldn’t stand it. As far as story goes, it’s just another magic, shounen anime. The show only got better around the end. The other thing I didn’t like was how annoying the main character was. Oh, I must say that the fights were pretty cool.

Overall Rate: 6/10
