About Kaze no Stigma
When the family business is fire, and you can't handle the heat, it's time to look for a new line of work – and maybe a new family, too.
Kazuma is a descendent of an ancient clan skilled in the magical Fire Arts. Unfortunately for him, the gift seems to have skipped a generation. Defeated by his younger, female cousin, Ayano, in a battle to become the clan's successor, Kazuma is exiled with only the smoldering burn of failure to keep him company. But now he's back, risen from the ashes and armed with a powerful new mojo that's sure to fan the flames of the family rivalry. The cooler he gets – the hotter she burns, and when Wind and Fire collide, Tokyo is caught in the eye of the storm.FUNimation Entertainment
will release Kaze no Stigma
on DVD in 2009.
