Kaze No Stigma is an anime television series produced by Gonzo studios that premiered on Chiba TV in 2007. The show is set in a world where elemental magic and martial arts coexist and follows the adventures of Kazuma Kannagi and Ayano Kannagi. Cherami Leigh voices Ayano, while Josh Grelle provides the voice for Kazuma, and Kyle Hebert is the voice of the supporting character Genma Kannagi.

The show's plot revolves around the Kannagi family, a clan of fire magic users who are one of the most powerful and influential families in the magic world. Kazuma, the main character, was once a member of the Kannagi family but was banished due to his inability to use fire magic. The family believed that Kazuma was unworthy of their name and cast him out. As a result, Kazuma decided to learn wind magic and eventually became a powerful wind user.

After four years, Kazuma returns to Japan to confront his family and clear his name after the death of his relative, who was murdered by a powerful fire magic user. Upon his return, he meets Ayano Kannagi, the current head of the Kannagi family and a skilled fire magic user. Ayano is initially hostile towards Kazuma but later forms an alliance with him to find the person responsible for her relative's death. Together, they face numerous challenges and danger as they navigate the complex world of magic and martial arts.

The series is known for its well-crafted action scenes, which showcase the abilities of the magic users and their combat prowess. The animation is impressive, and the music nicely complements the action. The voice acting is also exceptional, with Cherami Leigh and Josh Grelle providing excellent performances as Ayano and Kazuma, respectively. The chemistry between the two leads is palpable and adds depth to the show's plot.

Aside from the lead characters, the supporting cast is also notable. Kyle Hebert voices Genma Kannagi, Ayano's grandfather, who is a stern but caring figure. His interactions with Ayano and Kazuma provide much of the show's comedic relief. Other notable supporting characters include Ren Kannagi, Ayano's cousin, who is a prodigious fire magic user and Kazuma's rival, and Nanase Kudou, a wind user who is Kazuma's childhood friend.

The show has its share of flaws, including questionable character development and plot points. However, overall, it is an enjoyable watch for fans of action, magic, and martial arts genres. The world-building in the show is well done, and the rules governing magic are fascinating. The complex relationships between the characters and the conflicts that arise due to their differing beliefs and motivations provide sufficient intrigue to keep the audience engaged.

In conclusion, Kaze No Stigma is a compelling anime series that offers a refreshing twist on the magic and martial arts genres. The show is well animated and features excellent voice acting performances by Cherami Leigh, Josh Grelle, and other cast members. Though it has its share of flaws, it offers a fascinating world of elemental magic and martial arts that will undoubtedly appeal to anime fans.

Kaze No Stigma is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on April 11, 2007.
