Once upon a time, the god was very surprised by the ingenuity of humans, and decided to limit their creativity by sealing away their power into two separate worlds; "Erude" was the world of science and the world of magic was named "Fabdabere". An evil witch from the world of magic has become powerful enough to dream of taking control of both the worlds, and has sent her agents to the world of science seeking the KEY that will break the seal that keeps the two worlds apart. While being a simple child of the world of science, Suzukaze Sota has always had a quiet ability that permitted him nurture the growth of plants and befriend all sorts of animals. The sudden arrival of the cute warrior Akazukin and her silver wolf ally, Val, turns his life upside down, as he learns that he holds a magical key that is being sought by a number of powerful enemies.

Having seen only one episode – here is what I can share.

The middle-school-aged Suzukaze Sota is always being looked after by his cousin, next-door-neighbor and best friend, Ringo. She is waking him up each morning and making certain that he is eating properly each evening, when his father is out. But Sota has these reoccurring dreams in which he sees a cute cosplay warrior girl who defeats a large monster. And then one day, Sota at first encounters a larger-than-life gray wolf at a well outside of his house whom he brings into his house, then when being attacked by a monster of evil, he is surprised and helped by Akazukin, the warrior-girl of his dreams. As Val and Akazukin are exausted by their ordeals, he shelters and protects them, feeling that he has to hide their presence from Ringo. But Ringo does catch him and Akazukin together, and becomes very jealous, so much so that she accuses him of having found a new girlfriend.

The dark forces of the evil witch are not idle, and have taken to following Akazukin and Val in hopes of finding the magic key. They have been able to track them to Sota’s home, where they launch a surprise attack.....

While appearing to be oriented to the young crowd (all of the main characters appear to be 12 or 13 years old,) this is a very fun fantasy adventure story that just charmed me. It was originally planned as a 4-episode OVA, but after the first episode: everything changed. They stopped the OVA and then launched a 39-episode TV series.
