Only a pure maiden can have the privilege to contract with a spirit. In here, Areishia Spirit Academy, trained maidens of noble families are gathered and given an elite's education to become spirit contractors. A boy, Kamito, peeped by accident at a girl, Clair, while she was taking a bath and he ended up making a contract with the spirit she wanted. Yes, Kamito is an irregular boy spirit contractor whose existence was thought impossible until now. "You stole...my spirit...you have to take responsibility for it!" "Huh?" "You have to become my contracted spirit!" What will Kamito's destiny lead to?
I'm going to give it at least an episode or two to see how it is. It's a pity that it didn't start airing at the same time as most of the other shows.
It is a decently popular LN, but I haven't read it. Any thoughts?
Interesting first episode, well executed compared to anime of the genre, I like Kamito. Claire is less annoying compared to other characters of this genre too. Though I don't care much about her and the other girls presented so far.
Reminds me of Kizutsukanai by the first episode. And the obvious IS comparisons are there to be drawn. Looking forward to hearing more about Demon King, the legendary Blade Dancer and Restia, who seems to be missing.
It was fairly amusing, although those girls are more idiotic than I expected. Claire was a complete dunce and Rinslet was just her opposite, but still an idiot.
Ellis seemed to have some potential.

I suppose. The first episode was better than I expected. It wasn't unwatchable stuff or anything.
Just the introduction of the two main characters (Kamito and Claire) was enough for me to fall in love with this show.
I seem to love a lot harem anime set in a fantasy world or in the real world with fantasy elements.
Either way, the first episode was good and Claire is really cute, even though she seems to be a bit...violent? XD
As for the MC, it seems like he's trying to meet this Restia girl, who seems to have appeared towards the end...
What happened between the two of them and why she "abandoned" him?
Guess we will have to find it out.
Kamito is really a good MC, I am starting to like Claire and Rinslet as well. Lot of good comedy moments too.
Kamito must be Ren Ashbell, the fights were underwhelming but it's to be expected for the first ones.
^ I didn't really give it much thought to be honest but this episode made it obvious. This name was also not very important in my eyes at this time.
