KAZE NO STIGMA: SEASON 1, VOL. 2 September 1 SRP $59.98 The only person with a chance to melt Kazuma’s chilly exterior is the same red hot firebrand who incinerated his chances of a happy home life. Ayano is the smoldering redhead that issued a royal beat down to her cousin and staked her claim to the Kannagi Clan’s sacred sword. This stubborn flamethrower is a prodigy when it comes to making things explode, but she fights with a reckless abandon that could get her burned. Put her in the same as Kazuma, and there’s bound to be fireworks. Trouble looms on the horizon, and a pairing of Wind and Fire is Tokyo’s best bet to survive the night and see the light of day— provided it can take the heat.
