Alto Goldfield, a student at Royal Ortigia Magic Academy, is struggling at school. However, he desires to become a top-class magician.
“Vermeil in Gold” Episode 1 introduces Alto, who is about to fail a class on summoning magic. He might have to repeat a year because he seems to have no talent when it comes to summoning.
He tries and accidentally summons a depraved-looking demon called Vermeil. Alto wants to enjoy a simple academic life but with the arrival of Vermeil, things are about to get complicated.
Vermeil is one of the most dreaded entities from ancient times and is known to violate the laws of the land and cause massive destruction.
Can Alto work with Vermeil without causing any sort of destruction?
“Meet Alto, a hapless student at Royal Ortigia Magic Academy whose academic performance leaves much to be desired. Rather than take a more sensible approach to salvaging his grades in time for graduation, Alto decides to summon a bit of otherworldly assistance. Only after does he learn he’s bound the legendary she-devil Vermeil into service as his familiar!” read the official synopsis of “Vermeil in Gold” anime, according to Sentai.
“But while Vermeil is a powerful ally sure to turn his grades around, her magic can only be replenished with a kiss, and that makes everything go to hell with Alto’s jealous childhood friend, Lilia.
