Something that some people don't seem to know is that, like science fiction, there are many different subgenres. Regular Harry Potter is part of the subgenre known as Urban Fantasy, which combines fantasy with modern trappings. High Fantasy, meanwhile, is more along the lines of Lord of the Rings, while Low Fantasy is more of a grungey variety of story along the lines of Berserk.

Because it amused me, I wondered what a Low Fantasy version of Harry Potter would be like. Not entirely accurate though, if it were they'd also be caked in mud, blood and crap as well.
