The series is a nice mix of the series Ghost Hunt and Full Metal Alchemist, the series focuses mostly on a team of mixed spiritual and magical employees who take jobs on supernatural cases in Japan from hauntings to dark wizards causing mayhem. The cast main characters are Itsuki Iba the young male high-school student who has taken his fathers place as the new president of the group called ASTRAL and has a unique gift while not having any powerful magical abilities to really speak of and being a little bit timid(More like a lot)his right eye is gifted with an ability called Glam sight allows him to anticipate his opponents moves and see their inner self and magical powers giving him a decided advantage over them, next we have the young celtic witch Honami Takase Ambler who goes to the same school as Iba and has untold feelings for him as well as a secret dark past with Iba as they knew each other as children but after a horrific experience causes Iba to loose that part of his memories, next we have Ren Nekoyashiki A seemingly mid-twenties Onmoudou caster who while having a pretty laid back attitude to most things does have an apparently hardcore affections for cats and being a hard negotiator for the price of jobs and expenses for the company, the last spiritual member of the team is a young girl Mikan Katsuragi who despite her age is a powerful Shinto priestess but also which expected for her age is still quite childish in her ways, the last two people are Manami Kuroha a young female ghost that Iba hires to the company after meeting her on one of their jobs, and finally we have Adelicia Lenn Mathers a powerful young female western spell caster who is the president of a competing company of Astral and after coming to know Iba develops feelings for him as well making her a rival of Honami.Read more ›

I chose this title because I am very interested in magic. This series does not disappoint especially, with the handbook that comes inside detailing where they got the several types of magic and where they came from. I enjoy dubbed versions better because I can focus more on the animation and often times the translation does not come across. This is an exception. I really enjoyed the japanese cast. This series one and two ( you have to get both) were fun to watch and hit the different magic fields right on.
Buy it. It is definitely worth the money.
Only problem is that you can either watch it in broadcast order or chronological. Which really didn't make too much sense. Of course, you want to watch it chronologically to get the whole story at once. So, you are constantly switching from one disc to the other. But, It is worth it. Just be patient.
