Zero no tsukaima - Fun but Standard
25 January 2020 | by CafelarSee all my reviews

Few things differ this anime from any other of this genre, keeping the characters' personality and even their powers within the standard, without much news. However, the relationship between Saito and Louise becomes interesting, and very close to the end some revelations start what could be a good plot, but at this moment the anime comes to an end.
