Crunchyroll will stream Wistoria: Wand and Sword worldwide, outside of Japan. It describes the series as: 

A hard-working boy named Will enters a magic academy in hopes of becoming a great sorcerer. Unfortunately, there’s a fatal flaw in his plan: he lacks the ability to use magic. Amid the cold stares of his classmates and instructors, Will feels discouraged at times, but he presses forward with unwavering determination.

He just needs to believe in his own unique strengths and remember the promise he made with someone precious to him…
