What I'm liking about the character designs of the characters here is the noticeable pink "blushes" just below the eyes. Aside from that the characters here have distinct characteristics known to them which complements to the story. Compared to the first arc, where most of the drama is centered to the bestriends, Yoshino an Mahiro. This time it will spread out between the two mages and best friends. Can't wait to see for the next episode to air.
