The Familiar of Zero (ゼロの使い魔, Zero no Tsukaima) is an anime produced by J.C. Staff and directed by Yoshiaki Iwasaki, based on the series of light novels written by Noboru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka.

The first season of the series was licensed in the United States in a partnership between Geneon Entertainment and FUNimation Entertainment, but the license expired in 2011. Sentai Filmworks has since re-licensed and re-released the first series and released the other three series in North America in sub-only format.


Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière is a self-absorbed mage in a world of wands, cloaks, and royalty. Although she studies at Tristain Academy, a prestigious school for magicians, she has a major problem: Louise is unable to cast magic properly, earning her the nickname of "Louise the Zero" from her classmates.

When the first year students are required to perform a summoning ritual, Louise's summoning results in a catastrophic explosion! Everyone deems this to be yet another failure, but when the smoke clears, a boy named Saito Hiraga appears. Now Louise's familiar, Saito is treated as a slave, forced to clean her clothes and eat off the ground. But when an unfamiliar brand is found etched on Saito's hand from the summoning ritual, it is believed to be the mark of a powerful familiar named Gandalfr.
