The anime will air two episodes every Monday and Tuesday in the same time slot.
Animax Asia describes the anime:
In a world where spirits exist and only pure maidens have the privilege of forming contracts with the spirits, maidens from noble families gather at Areishia Spirit Academy where they train to become an elementalist.
Being the only male elementalist in the world, Kazehaya Kamito was invited by the Academy's director – Greyworth Ciel Mais, to Areishia Spirit Academy. While travelling to the academy, Kamito loses his way in the spirit forest and stumbles upon a girl named Claire Rouge.
In a twist of an event, Kamito finds himself contracted to a spirit that Claire originally wanted. Disregarding the fact that he once saved her life, Claire accuses Kamito of stealing her spirit. Because of that, she insists for Kamito to atone for it by becoming her contracted spirit. What will Kamito's destiny lead to?
