Magic is one of the things that fascinates us human beings a lot. It is the closest thing that we can resemble science in real life, but the world of magic is very interesting, and a lot of people like watching content that has some elements of magic or spells.

Like even though a series has a great character arc and a good storyline, what adds up to the excitement of watching it is that dragons are flying around. Can the characters cast various spells of different types or use potions to boost their mana?
