Magic schools in anime are a pretty common genre but surely it’ll be unique if there is a world where mages are rare. Return of The 8th Class Mage anime is set to be announced soon and it serves as a great story placed in a world where mages are rare yet powerful.
This plot includes genres of tragedy, fantasy, and revenge along with other sub-plots coming into play. Of course, there is a protagonist who shines brighter than the rest but it still doesn’t take away the charm of the other characters.
Return of The 8th Class Mage definitely has action, adventure, and mystery elements mixed in along with political drama which ensures that there is never a boring time.
This is really a crisp story as it has not moved about with other elements or gone into other details. This makes it an engaging read as we follow the protagonist through his path of revenge and redemption.
While other sub-plots like romance and friendship are also added, it’s not anything abrupt or difficult to process. Return of The 8th Class Mage has gradually formed all of the underlying elements of the story.
As Return of The 8th Class Mage portrays an almost realistic fantasy world, it doesn’t deal with the elements of leveling or cultivation. This is surely a breather among the recent animes where protagonists focus on leveling up.
With a fun protagonist who has a logical mind and people around him who are supporting him in his life, Return of The 8th Class Mage is a wonderful read and definitely deserves its anime adaptation.
