In Rental Magica, teenager Iba Itsuki assumes the role of president in a company of mages-for-hire called "Astral." With all sorts of spirits, supernatural entities, and rival mages from other more sinister factions, Itsuki has a lot to contend with as he struggles to fill the shoe's of his father, Astral's former president. Thankfully, Itsuki has help in the form of his childhood friend Honami - a Celtic Witch, Nekoyashiki - an Onmyou Sorcerer, Mikan - a Shinto Priestess, and on occasion... Adelicia - the heir to Solomonic Magic. Rental Magica is a fun fantasy that explores various types of magic in a modern day setting and is replete with mythology and folklore.
- Originally broadcast in 2007, this 24 episode series is presented in medias res, putting viewers directly into the middle of the action. As this can present a bit of confusion, especially for a first-time viewer, we offer an alternative episode viewing order. For people who would like to watch the show as it was originally presented, the standard viewing order presented is the "Broadcast Order." Additionally, we have the "Chronological Order" for people who like to watch events as they occur in order according to the show's timeline. From the Blu-ray's main menu, you can easily choose the way you would like to watch the show and proceed from there.
- Another feature we'd like to mention is that this show is chock full of deeply-rooted historical mysticism and lore. As such, our original DVD release had extensive liner notes that were compiled into 2 books across both DVD sets. As a means of preserving all of that information, we've included an insert card in the Blu-ray that will provide a link to a PDF containing the complete liner notes. From there, you are free to download these or print them off as you see fit.
Rental Magica contains episodes 1-24 of the anime directed by Itsuro Kawasaki.
Destroying supernatural monsters... Dispelling dark magic... It's all in a day's work for the mages of Astral! However, after the mysterious disappearance of the company president, they're left in a lurch. His son, Itsuki Iba, begrudgingly fills in, but Itsuki's unfamiliarity with magic could spell bad news for Astral - especially with their rival Goetia vying for the very same contracts. As the jobs grow ever more dangerous, they soon find that staying in business is the least of their worries.
