I agree, the first episode is very well done and is enough to keep me watching this series. Fire and wind are both base elements, so it is hard to be avoided when it comes to magical/spiritual power in the anime world.
Kazuma matches my personality and style, as well as the fact that we get blamed for things before being proved otherwise
To top that off, his fighting style as a wind user and my avatar name matches perfectly. Now this is one character I can connect to. Maybe its time for me to make a siggy, but I am no good at it XD
Anyway, the action scenes so far are pretty well done. Wind element can strengthen the power of fire if used co-operatively, so I do look forward to Ayano and Kazuma teaming up against the other wind user that's been killing the fire users.
