People begin referring to them as Genestella because of their extraordinary physical attributes. There are six prestigious schools where the Genestella can learn to control their abilities, and Seidoukan Academy is one of them. Festas, or student-versus-student duels, follow, in which the students square off against one another.
Seidoukan Academy accepts a youngGenestella by the name of Ayato, who is now known as Ayato Amagiri. Instead of returning the lost handkerchief to the girl, he discovers that she has grown up and challenges him to a fight. On the contrary, Ayato has no desire to participate in Festa. No one has any idea why he’s here or what his plans are. There are two seasons totaling 48 episodes in the show. Look no further than our selection of similarly themed and stylistically styled shows.

1. Zero no Tsukaima (2006)
Popular anime series ‘Zero no Tsukaima’ features magic and fantasy elements. This anime is a must-see if you enjoy harem comedies with plenty of ecchi moments. There are many similarities between the protagonist’s predicament and that of the protagonist in ‘The Asterisk War”. Both of them find themselves in a sticky situation as a result of the film’s female lead, and they are forced to do things they had no intention of doing. In addition to the magic and ecchi moments already mentioned, this anime has a lot to offer.
‘Zero no Tsukaima’ takes place in a high school, named Tristain Academy, which is a place where magicians train themselves to become better.
Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière, the female protagonist of the anime, is a student at Tristain. She’s conceited, obnoxious, and conceited. But she lacks the qualities to back up her attitude, and she is also unable to properly cast magic spells. Because of this, she’s known as ‘Louise the Zero.’ So when an explosion occurs as an aftermath of her casting a summoning spell, everyone seems to conclude it as another one of her failures. There is a human named Saito Hirata who appears as proof that the spell worked. Now, he is Louise’s familiar and the latter starts treating him like a slave, making him do all her work. But it seems Hirata is not just a normal human as he bears the mark of Gandalfr, one of the most powerful familiars. So there might be more to Louise’s magic too. This is a really entertaining anime that I’d highly recommend to fans of ‘The Asterisk War’.
