The series ran for four seasons, ending in 2012. The story is set in an alternate world, where magic exists alongside medieval European-inspired civilization. In this world, a young girl named Louise is training to become a magician at the prestigious Tristain Academy of Magic. However, she is infamous among her peers for her inability to cast spells properly, earning her the nickname "Louise the Zero".

One day, during a practice spell, Louise accidentally summons a human boy from Earth named Saito Hiraga. Saito is initially confused and frightened by his new surroundings, but quickly adapts to life in this new world. Louise, meanwhile, is shocked to discover that she has successfully summoned a familiar, a magical creature who is bound to serve and protect her.

Despite their initial awkwardness, Louise and Saito grow to become close friends and allies. They find themselves constantly facing danger, as rival nations plot to conquer Tristain and its allies. Along the way, they meet a wide cast of characters, some friendly and some not so much, who aid them in their various quests and missions.

The romance between Louise and Saito is a recurring theme throughout the series, as they navigate their feelings for each other amidst the chaos of their adventures. The comedy comes from the show's many humorous moments, often featuring Louise's tsundere personality and Saito's sarcastic wit.
