Kaze no Stigma is quite a fun and endearing anime despite the description of the manga as being significantly darker. Seeing Kazuma and Ayano grow closer as the series progresses is a lot of fun especially considering how exasperating and hot headed Ayano can be! Its also interesting to watch how Kazuma's brother Ren grows to be a kindler, gentler version of his older brother.
Plot wise there are few wasted moments with plenty of action of the magical variety from end to end. One matter that the anime could have explored in another episode or two was what happened between Kazuma and Tsui Le, as it is you only get a few flashbacks of the events that drove Kazuma to become a contractor/wind magic user.
The intro song "Blast of Wind" is really beautiful and there are two or three ending songs that are nice as well.
Overall, I recommend the series.
