I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I'm going to be sitting in customer waiting areas for a while today, waiting for car stuff to be completed. Let's see if I can finish this while I wait.
There's one character, the "magician," that I don't recall seeing in the anime at all. No idea if he's just someone who slipped my mind, since it's been ages since I saw the series, or whether I'm in for some new-to-me content.
