Magic -- A century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or folklore.

The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year.
At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, A.K.A Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The "Bloom," who demonstrate the highest grades and are enrolled in the "First Course," and the "Weed," who have a poor academic record and are enrolled in the "Second Course."

This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students.

The brother is an under achiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a "Weed," while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a "Bloom."

The brother, with a somewhat philosophical expression, and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him…

Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change...

-Protagonist is considered "weak", but is actually really strong
-Both deal with magic and science
-Mahouka is like Majutsu no Index but with more explanations about how magic works

Both have the same setting where it is set in a magical school.

Both involves the same brother and sister tandem attending the same school and are in the same year level.

Both have the same action, magic, adventure and supernatural genre.

Both have the same character where the brother is a top performing student.


One involves a true brother and sister tandem, while in the other anime the siblings are unrelated.

The main guy in one anime was cocky, arrogant and a pervert, while the main guy in the other anime is noble, respectful and a gentleman.

The school uniform for girls in one anime is kinda conservative while the school uniform for girls in the other anime was the usual thing where the skirts are short.

One has an extra ecchi genre, while the other has an extra martial art element.
