After many years of war, a temporary truce between Sablum and Wind Land was established; but after the Sablum Empire broke the truce, Wind Land must take the offense and train a new group of knights and sorcerers to protect the land. Hyaweh, an unexpected swordsman, and Priecia, the rumored surviving princess of Wind Land, enroll in the academy of knights together to protect what they cherish most.

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
the two series tell about two female teens who are very uptight, and gradually open up to the one they have fallen in love with. the main characters are also very skilled with swords and magic. if you like romance, magic and fantasy, this is your anime
Putting the fact Prism Ark was advertised concluding the end of some episode of Zero no Tsukaima I had watched aside, the two of these anime excel at combining magic and sword fighting together into their plot. Oh, and there’s also romance between the two lead characters in both anime, so if you’re interested in seeing romance being built around a fantasy- or magic-like world, you’ll be glad you read this if you decide to watch the other.
Additionally, if you enjoy JRPGs with the setting being enveloped around magical schools, there’s no way I can allow you to NOT watch this other anime, fellow “fantasy and magic” JRPG fan. >D
Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?
