Kaze No Stigma is the story of elemental magic users. Typically born into a specific family yields a person the ability to use a certain elemental magic. Kazuma is born into the Kannagi family, a family of fire users. Unfortunately he himself cannot control his fire magic. After a dual with his cousin to decide the heir to the family, which Kazuma loses terribly, his father disowns him and banishes him from the house. After a couple years Kazuma returns and unexpectedly has the ability to control wind magic. As soon as he returns, Kannagi family members are murdered by wind magic and the first suspect is Kazuma. The most powerful fire magic user, kazuma’s father, makes an attempt to bring kazuma in to question him but has no luck. It is revealed that Kazuma has become a contractor. A contractor is one who has been granted a contract with a demon king of an element. The last known contractor was the first member of the Kannagi family to use fire magic, and as a result enabled the future members their abilities with fire as well. Through the series Kazuma helps Ayano, the cousin he lost his duel with, to become a worthy heir all the while dealing with his past with the family and the trouble he went through after he was banished. For as short as this series was, I am a major fan of the magic genre of anime. I enjoyed this but thought it could have been done a little better and continued for a little while longer. Certain characters had an adequate amount of development but many were lacking quite a bit, a problem which would have been solved had there been another season. Enjoy the magic!
