Kaze no Stigma

Kazuma Yagami is a user of "Fuujutsu," the ability to control the wind. He returns to his old home, the noble Kannagi household, after being banished four years ago for his inability to control fire and his subsequent defeat in a duel at the hands of his younger cousin, Ayano Kannagi. Returning after such a brutal exile already gives rise to many conflicts, but to make matters worse, several Kannagi family members have recently been murdered with Fuujutsu. This leads the Kannagi family, including the hot-headed Ayano, to suspect Kazuma as the culprit. Now, Kazuma must not only clear his name, but also aid the family he shares a mutual hatred with, in order to discover the true identity of the killer. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Kaze no Stigma was probably the first anime I watched where the protagonist was not weak/stupid/ignorant and whatever else is usually befalling the typical leads of similar anime. That counts for a lot, unfortunately it still doesn't help that the rest of the cast is much more typical. Despite this I actually really ended up enjoying this as the writing was good enough to keep me interested, and the characters were funny enough to overcome their cliches for me. Overall the biggest disappointment for me was the fact that the mysterious incident that is alluded to in flash backs is never properly explained and will never be. I think a second season could have rounded this anime out into the top 20 list of mine, sadly as is it merely was an enjoyable anime

At first glance Kaze no Stigma shows a very promising plot only to be ruined (if watching this in English) by the dub characters. The animation is nothing to great. Gonzo did its work. Comparable to what they did is in Rosario+Vampire Sound was like the animation bland with the opening being the only major likable part of the soundtrack. Getting to the story. This series could have easily had a second season mainly because of the cliffhanger in the end. The story finishes by explaining a lot and nothing at all. Having 24 episodes it could have skipped a few filler and made an actual ending even if it wasn't like the manga ending (remember the series ended abruptly, author died). I recommend the series. That is all I can say for now.

Amazing Anime, Great story line and my personal favorite. Shame how the author Takahiro Yamato died back in 2009, But he left us an amazing anime.

hmm i really love this anime so much, that romance and action so depth but it seems i've never seen again season 2 :(

Overall Kaze No Stigma is a great anime, Kazuma's attitude and personality is cool. The only real downside to the anime is that every second episode is sort of a different plot. Every second one is separate from the main plot as the father keeps trying to set Kazuma and Ayano up together. It's not bad, but would be better if the anime itself was longer because of that.

This anime was really, really terrible. The characters were bland/generic archetypes, the route the story arc took was generic, and the decisions made just didn't make much sense at all. The saving grace of this anime was the character Yagami. His responses to the irrational actions influenced by each characters archetypes were hilarious, it was as though a regular person got trapped in a generic anime. If you view this anime as the gradual corruption of a normal person and their views of people and general things within the stereotypical anime world its a really fun show to watch! Yagamis smugly blunt and sarcastic demeanor gave this show an enjoyment rating of 8, as terrible as the anime is.  I usually heavily research anime before watching them but ended up watching this one after jokingly selecting it on Netflix, thus it is the worst anime I have ever watched. It's fun to watch, but looking at it critically, it's an abomination.
