Zero no Tsukaima (Generic discussion thread)

Info from Animenfo.com
"When Saito wakes up a cute girl is looking into his face. Looking around, he finds he is in the strange place and sounded by people looked like wizards. Then ,he learns that he was summoned as a magic servant by the girl, Louise. While he is embarrassed, Louise kisses him saying that it is a contract. Soon, strange letters appears on his hand, and he is made a servant."

Does anyone know of this anime? For instance, was it based off a manga/game?

Here's the link from AnimeNfo.com:

- http://www.animenfo.com/animetitle,3...o_tsukaim.html

That doesn't provide much information and a Google search turns up very little. I ran a search of the English language blogsphere (technorati, feedster, bloglines, etc.) and found these related links:

- http://psgels.blogspot.com/2005/12/w...nd-beyond.html (very small blurb down at the bottom of the page)
- http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.p...anime&aid=4146 (not much except a picture and a small description)

Not a much info though. Could always run a search on Goo or thumb through the Japanese blogsphere I suppose. According to the AnimeNfo link, the original work was/is done by Yamaguchi Noboru. Sorry it's not much help. Cheers.

Hmm.... the art looks nice. And the seiyuus are top notch (the Shana triumvirate of Ayako-sama, Rie Kugimiya and the guy), so it sounds interesting to pick up on.

Just finished reading the first arc (first three chapters) of the first novel. I can't say I'm a big fan of the writing, as I get the feeling that the characters sometimes change behavior too abruptly. Also, it also feels kind of sleazy, with constant mentions of underwear. Other than that, it's at least mildly entertaining, and the revelation in chapter three made up for some of the other parts. The language isn't too hard to digest and I suppose I'll continue reading to find out what happens next.

And as a sidenote, I find it kinda cute that a lot of the characters are references to people in France during Louis XIV's reign.

As soon as I saw the artwork (before reading your posts) I thought there were definite hints of Shana in there, both art style and the girl's design. I'll be checking this one out, since I rather liked Shana and the story sounds vaguely fun

Compared to Shana, it seems to me that Zero focuses more on the main character, while Shana seems to be a mix between Shana and the main character. I didn't find Louise (rest of super long name omitted) as interesting as the main character, while I found Shana more interesting than Yuuji. And if you want tsundere, go watch Tsuyokiss ;o
