Synopsis: Year 526 of the Liturgical Calendar. The world knew that witches existed, and that they practiced the notorious art of sorcery. Nevertheless, the world did not know anything about the study of magic. Our story follows a half-man, half-beast mercenary; humans mockingly call his kind the “fallen beasts”. He always dreamt of becoming a human, but one day, he met a witch who would change his life forever. “Do you desire a human form? Then be my escort, mercenary!” The witch introduced herself as “Zero”, and explained that she was searching for a one-of-a-kind magical tome that bandits had stolen from her lair. Entitled “The Book of Zero”, the grimoire supposedly contained valuable magical knowledge that could be used to effortlessly bring the world to its knees. Thus, in order to realize his dream of becoming a human, the mercenary must accompany Zero on her journey—despite her being one of the witches he so loathed. This is the story of a haughty sorceress and a kindhearted beast.

Zero kara hajimeru Mahou no Sho: BROCENARY! No. Seriously. Watch this. Mercenary and Zero's interactions are great. If they get even half of them in, this will be a classic to remember.
after ep.1 Im ready for more loliwitchxfurcenary, its title is similar to Re:Zero :)

Yep, this series is definitely going to be one of, if not the best this season. I really enjoy the characters in the LN for this, and how it plays with the cliches. Zero and Brocenary's Boke and Tsukkomi routine is fun. :D

Feels nostalgic ala Slayers' journey finding Claire's Bible, as another witch joins Zero (sadly not Sorena)... ep.2 'i was a mercenary like you once, then i took an arrow to the knee' xD this Skyrim meme never gets old unlike grampcenary :p

lol aside its narrator sounds like Berserk's (Void), imagine Pervcenary vs Holdem as If Guts and Griffith were beastfallen... after a peaceful ep.4 with Zero learning about the world, telling by this preview i guess Thirteen burned albus' village <_<
