When it comes to the magical girl genre, there aresome anime series that are cute and sweet, and there are some that are in a league of their own. The anime series, Rental Magica focuses on a young man named Itsuki who is the president of Astral. Astral is a demon extermination group that Itsuki's father created as a means to destroy demons. This company has hired a small group of mages that go out and solve numerous cases involving other magical beings and entities. Shortly after the passing of Itsuki's father, he had gained an interesting and unique ability known as "Glam Sight". This ability allows him to predict a magical person's next move as well as their weakness. Unfortunately, since Itsuki isn't a mage, his ability comes at a severe cost and without the use of magic like the other mages. Because of this, he tries to not use this ability too much. Apparently, because of Itsuki's unique ability, it automatically makes him an easy target with the multiple mages and ghost that will cross paths with him during his journey. Itsuki is literally thrusted into a sticky situation early on in his life, which then leads him to working with his employees who are mages and leads him to develop a close bond with them. As the series progresses, Itsuki becomes brave and ready to take on almost everything and anything, but in doing so, he tends to throw caution in the wind by having his companions cover him during tough situations that he sometimes creates from himself and others around him. As for the other characters in the series, there is a girl named Konami, who is not only a powerful witch, but a good friend of Itsuki. She scolds Itsuki throughout the series, but at the same time, she has a strong fondness of him as a long-time friend. Other characters include Mikan, a cute and adorable character who is a Shinto specialist, and Kuroha, a ghost that join Astral and seems to take a liking to Itsuki's sweet and humble personality.
