Do you enjoy watching anime episodes about magic? when anime characters employ their amazing magical abilities and you are left speechless.
As a result, today we’re going to compile a list of magic anime shows that are set in other magic anime universes that feature strong female protagonists with legendary magical abilities.
To be fair, we left off certain popular magic anime like Mahouka Koukou no Rettouseei, Fate Series, and The Seven Deadly Sins. As a result, we are recommending some lesser-known, ignored, and original magic anime, all of which are excellent and fun to watch.
1. Howl’s Moving Castle
Sophie, a young woman of 18, was cursed by the vengeful Witch of the Waste to age gracefully. Sophie searches for a wizard named Howl who might be able to aid her in breaking the spell, but instead finds employment as a housekeeper in his mobile palace. She develops feelings for the infamous wizard, who the king promptly calls to battle in an ongoing conflict.
The captivating animated tale Howl’s Moving Castle is based on Diana Wynne Jones’s fantasy book of the same name. It is filled with all the wonder, magic, stunning graphics, romantic romance, and other elements that make Miyazaki’s movies so beloved. Additionally, there is that fantastic castle on legs in the steampunk style. The movie features well-developed characters and some unexpected surprises. Wizards, sorceresses, and other supernatural entities that appear on television all have good, bad, and everything in between moments. It truly is a Ghibli masterpiece.
One of several critically praised animation films by Hayao Miyazaki, Howl’s Moving Castle is a 2005 release from Studio Ghibli. The film was adapted on the same-titled novel by Diana Jones. The central character of the Studio Ghibli film, Sophie, is cursed by a witch to age into an elderly lady. She then goes in search of the wizard Howl to end her curse.
Despite the majority of the action taking place outside of it, there is war everywhere in Howl’s Moving Castle. Nearly all cities have a backdrop of soldiers. Tanks are in the streets, battleships are returning on fire, and there are several warplanes. Everyone is ringing Howl’s doorbell in the hopes that he would utilise his wizardry to aid in the war effort. Wizards and witches who choose not to devote their lives to fighting in the war are viewed as traitors and enemies of their nation.
2. That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime
Every season brings a fresh Isekai anime. There are occasionally some decent ones, but the most of them are basically variations on the same theme. One of the best isekai anime is That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.
Beginning as a web book, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime has now been translated into legitimate light novels, manga, anime series, and films. The anime’s second season premiered in 2021, and a new film is scheduled for release in 2022. The third season of the anime will carry on the plot from the original light book since the movie will include a newly created original scenario. The anime typically adapts three volumes’ worth of plot every season, therefore it is extremely probable that the third season will cover volumes 7 through 9. Here are a couple of things you might anticipate seeing in the third season.
Let’s briefly recap season 2’s events before discussing what may transpire in season 3. There are many important events taking place in the second season, but these three significant ones stood out the most. Tempest’s invasion. While Rimuru is engaged in combat with Hinata Sakaguchi, the Kingdom of Falmuth invades Tempest and massacres a great number of residents. Rimuru slaughtered the army of Falmuth, leaving only the king and few of its attendees when he finally made it back to his country and saw what had happened. Rimuru transformed into a demon ruler in order to have the capability to restore his citizen.
The Clayman Attack. When Rimuru learned that Clayman had participated in the recent invasion of Tempest and was now preparing to invade Eurazania with his army, Rimuru made the decision to challenge Clayman with an army made up of the best fighters from Tempest. Although Clayman has an army of 30,000 men, Tempest’s warriors effortlessly subdue all of them. Furthermore, they also proceeded to Clayman’s realm and took over his castle. Of the Octagram, Rimuru At the same time when Rimuru’s army and Clayman’s army were fighting, Walpurgis, a gathering of demon lords, took place.
In the presence of all demon lords, it was determined that Rimuru should engage Clayman in combat in order to establish his legitimacy and his position about Clayman’s plan. Clayman was easily beaten and murdered by Rimuru. Demon lords Carrion and Frey then made the decision to leave their positions, forcing them to modify their name from “The Octagram” to “The Ten Great Demon Lords.”
Beginning their relationship, Hinata and Rimuru made a terrible impression on one another. When Hinata fights Rimuru, she subsequently realises that she had been duped by false information. In order to speak with Rimuru as a representative of The Holy Empire Ruberios, Hinata and her Paladin chose to travel to the Jura Tempest Federation.
The Jura Tempest Federation’s superior technical capabilities to any other nation astounded Hinata and her Paladin. Unfortunately, there is foul play taking place once more to ensure that Hinata and Rimuru murder one another. The two sides truly want to negotiate in peace, but there will inevitably be a full-scale battle between Hinata and her Paladin and Rimuru and his executives.
Rimuru made the decision to host “The Tempest Founder’s Celebration,” the largest festival in the world, to commemorate the creation of Tempest and to improve diplomatic ties between Tempest and the countries around it.
But in addition to strengthening diplomatic ties between Tempest and other countries, the event also serves as a significant advertising ploy for Tempest. Rimuru makes sure that his crew is prepared to display the world-class hotel sector, the delectable cuisine, the first-rate entertainment, and the cutting-edge technology that sets them apart from other countries.
The enormous battle competition is one of the festival’s main attractions. Rimuru spends a lot of time tinkering with everything associated with this event in the hopes of making it one of The Jura Tempest Federation’s primary draws. What’s better way to do this than to include Lightspeed Masayuki, the world’s lone hero?
The competition is featuring a tonne of exciting fights, and both the spectators and international athletes are having a great time. However, behind the scenes, there are a plethora of logistical issues that keep arising. After all this time, Rimuru eventually began to experience ruler-related fatigue.
As you can see, the third season of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime will be a blend of an exciting and wholesome plot based on the light novels. The chief of the Holy Empire’s Paladins and the head of the country of monsters will engage in the fight of the century to start it off. But after that, the tale will be rather calm and wholesome all the way to the finish.
3. Fairy Tail
Natsu Dragneel, a fire dragon slayer, Lucy Heartfilia, Erza Scarlet, a formidable swordswoman, Gray Fullbuster, Wendy Marvell, a wind dragon slayer, and Happy and Carla, two flying cats, are the main characters of Fairy Tail.
Natsu and Happy first meet Lucy in the Kingdom of Fiore, which is where their adventure begins. They protect her from being tricked by a phoney who, ironically, was acting as Natsu. Lucy is subsequently invited to join Natsu and Happy’s guild, Fairy Tail, where she meets the other members.
Together, Natsu, Lucy, and Happy accept task requests from Fiore’s commoners in return for gems. The squad enlists the assistance of Gray, Erza, Wendy, and Carla for some of their more difficult tasks.
The trio interacts with different magicians and guilds from all across the Kingdom of Fiore through various assignments. While trying to save their family and friends, they fight against wicked creatures, shadowy guilds, and demons.
The Fairy Tail characters have a new adventure every day. Watch to witness how everyone develops and matures, how their relationships endure the test of time, and how they unite to face off against their greatest adversary in a grand fight as the series draws to a close.
4. Kiki’s Delivery Service
A 13-year-old witch named Kiki relocates to a coastal community with her sarcastic black cat, Jiji, for the customary year of training and freedom. Kiki establishes a flying delivery business with the assistance of her new pals and her first suitor after a rocky beginning. The young witch must get over her fears to regain her magical strength though when her abracadabras fail her.
Witches in Hayao Miyazaki’s coming-of-age tale are useful community members rather than wicked creatures that dabble in dark magic. The friendly fantasy movie Kiki’s Delivery Service will charm you with its charming coastal setting, a few magical customs, romantic romance, comedy, and carefree slice-of-life atmosphere. One of the greatest witch animes available, the Studio Ghibli-animated charmer is a tonne of family-friendly fun.
5. Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic
In Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Aladdin, a formidable magician, battles by using both the Rukh, a unique light essence that can be transformed into magic strength, and the world around him. Aladdin sets off on a voyage of self-discovery with his childhood friend Ugo, a blue Djinn.
Djinns are powerful magical beings that typically live in dungeons, which are hostile environments full with traps and valuable resources.
Only the individual who successfully exited their dungeon and whom they believe to be deserving of the position of their King’s nominee will win the Djinn’s submission. After being defeated, the Djinn will be transformed into a weapon called a Metal Vessel that the victor in battles will use.
Aladdin first becomes friends with Alibaba, a youthful and upright swordsman, as he travels to various locations. They encounter other powerful people with their own views along the way, like Sinbad and his Seven Seas alliance, the Kou Empire, the Reim Empire, and many more. They quickly become entangled in many wars on their voyage.
They engage in combat with one another first as enemies and later as friends in an effort to understand how the cycle of life and the presence of the mystical Rukh function in their planet, to protect the lives of the populace, and to forge a peaceful, united society free from future violence.
6. Little Witch Academia
Akko Kagari wants to be as skilled at casting spells as her idol Shiny Chariot. Despite not possessing any magical abilities, Akko travels for Luna Nova Academy to pursue her goals. The daring witch has several difficulties there and gets into numerous scrapes with her new companions Lotte and Sucy.
There are obviously many similarities between Little Witch Academia and Harry Potter, which is how I’ve seen it described as “Harry Potter for females.” The magical school animation from Studio Trigger is a compelling watch for everyone, though. LWA offers a charming ensemble lead by the heroine who defies all obstacles, lively animation, a technologically advanced fantasy setting, deft comedy, and a positive vibe. You’ll breeze through this pleasant and heartwarming anime treasure in no time.
7. Black Clover
‘Black Clover’ is unquestionably an excellent programme to watch if you enjoy action, magic, or comedic anime. For a while now, it has generated some excitement in the marketplace. Two boys named Asta and Yuno are central to the narrative. On the same day, they were abandoned and placed in an orphanage. As they got older and gained knowledge about the Wizard King, they made a vow to contend with one another for the crown. Asta, however, lacks Yuno’s knack for magic.
Yuno obtains a four-leaf clover grimoire at the age of 15, while Asta gets nothing. Then Lebuty tackles Yuno in an effort to take his grimoire. Asta attempts to assist, but he is powerless against Lebuty. He obtains a five-leaf clover grimoire, which aids him in stopping Lebuty, but when he hears Yuno’s voice, his inner emotions explode. The pair then becomes more closer and sets out on a quest to become the world’s most powerful magician. The programme airs on Adult Swim.
8. The Ancient Magus Bride
The narrative of The Ancient Magus’ Bride centres on the lonely, unappreciated, and desperate Chise Hatori, a young child with a troubled background due to her family. Chise, who was feeling lost and powerless, tried to sell herself into slavery in order to leave her situation and find a new one. Later, she encounters Elias Ainsworth, a guy in a mask who buys her for £5 million.
Elias recognised Chise’s potential for magic and wanted to help her realise it by personally sharing his knowledge and talents with her. Elias found it difficult to comprehend human emotions and relationships as a being that is half human and half fae, therefore he intended to learn more via spending time with Chise.
The connection between the two main characters, Chise and Elias, and its eventual metamorphosis are the key themes of the novel. This lovely coming-of-age tale deals on delicate subjects including abandonment, self-worth, overcoming despair, discovering one’s purpose in life, and developing empathy.
Due to its topics, The Ancient Magus’ Bride is not your average uplifting fairytale. Before beginning the 24-episode series, you should see the three prequel OVAs to properly understand Kore Yamazaki’s work.
The OVAs will discuss Chise’s past and the events that led to her condition at the beginning of the anime series.
