(Two episodes watched):

Hitomi is a mage but either cannot or will not perform any magic; she seems to have some sort of magical malady that reminded me of color blindness. She is sent back in time (I think) to meet her grandmother when granny was about her own age--exactly why isn't clear. To cure her problem, perhaps? Episode one didn't exactly make clear what the premise of this show will be, or what the basic conflict is, or what's at risk. Nevertheless Hitomi seems to be a nice girl, and the show isn't trying to 'wow' us with outlandish tricks (the magic is very low key), so for the moment I was left curious where this might go. 'Slice-of-life magic' might be an appropriate description of the theme. But when episode three came around I found that I didn't want to watch it very much. The lack of a clear conflict had left me kind of bored with this show; this magical color blindness or whatever never made much sense and wasn't exactly exciting.
