Actually because of low budged and kind of crappy action scenes the main attraction of this anime for me are the characters and their relationship (specially AyanoxKazuma). It has an interesting plot but its strength lies not in action. If they would give it enough attention and big enough budget, then who knows, but for now the caharcters are the main force here.

quite true ~ but then again this series doesnt seem to give the impression of "just mindless fighting" to me in the first place :3 as far as the plot goes a good relationship plays a big part...how ayano comes to accept kazuma and all that ~ and not forgetting how kazuma ended up this way because of a broken heart ~

Quoted for truth. I've been saying this since episode 3 or so

That sounds pretty true. I doubt they did it that way on purpose, but the characters and plot really are the important thing here. Could be the less than incredible animation really makes you take notice of that. It's a good story anyways, so I'm glad it's being told.

The relationships really are key in this one. How Kazuma was treated in the Kannagi family, but can still have good relationships with members of it. It's just interesting to see how Kazuma's past has influenced him and how Ayano is going to change from that person we met at the start.

Sometimes relationship has the chemistry sometimes it does not...Lets say in Gurren we have the tsundere couple of KaminaxYoko but its so plain and boring that you allready know everything, so silly portrayed and played like it would be for someone who is 5-7 years old. One of the worst couple in this season (and as far as I know many poeple support this oppinion) becaue it doesnt have the chemistry needed, despite the fact that characters are quite uinterestig and active (specially Yoko, kamina is pretty stupid).

In Kaze no stigma relationships are pretty nicely portrayed and ofcorse KazumaxAyano pairing has the chemistry needed to make you interested in the show, despite the crappy action scenes and pretty stiff and lq animation.

yeah, the crappy animation and disappointing fight scenes just makes me a sad rabbit... x___x;;; (but the Kazuma x Ayano antics make up for that ) especially with episode 7...! It makes me a happy KazuxAya fangirl (I can't help but go into waff mode) XD

Anyways, episode 7 summary is up in my site~ took me quite some time because I got distracted and read the short stories (with KazuAya) whilst I haven't finished my summary (and my deep frying for that matter) x__X

Spoiler for Gurren:



Returning back to Kaze no Stigma - it has what Gurren lacks , mainly lively realtionships matching the personalities. Its rather hard to tell what formula works in making good relationship between characters, as sometimes it works,sometimes (like in Gurren's case) it doesn't.

Okay, while this isn't the Gurren thread, I'd like to say in its defense that Gurren's over-the-top action that borders on mecha parody is actually really refreshing. It's great how the show does not take itself too seriously. Characters are probably not the strength of Gurren, but it's not worthless by any stretch of the imagination ^_^;

Hey but there IS a difference being dere-dere for someone like Kazuma and for someone like Keitaro. Being dere-dere for Keitaro sounds almost like insult.
