I will not start with my usual lines here, we're just gonna start with the review NOW! :-)

The story is about Kamizaka Haruhi, when she was young she was rescued by a boy who used magic. After being saved by him, she wanted to be a ''mage'' herself. She goes to a magical school with two sections, normal and magic classes. Haruhi comes at the top of her class and is seen as one of the best mages. Even though, she still wants to meet the boy who saved her when she was little. Later, she meets a boy named Yuma who hates magic and read more

There are plenty of series where I've been unimpressed by the first few episodes, but grown to enjoy or totally love the result. It can be all about the writers hitting their stride, learning the characters, finding the new twists on old ideas that will surprise you, and somewhere in the middle there'll be a beach trip.

This is not one of those series. This is the complete opposite.

The writers actually started with a decent enough twist on the "magic high school" trope, and the first few episodes are "good enough" to make you want to see where it goes.

IT GOES NOWHERE! Instead, the writing spirals read more

This series, I HAVE TO DECLARE: I stuck with it to write a review, and so I will write a shortcut way to watch this show at the bottom of this review. Some episodes in the middle were a bit unnecessary.

[Mood: light-medium, dull]
[Notable pickings: Magic: 7 l Comedy: 4 l Romance: 3 l Action: 4 l School life: 8 ]

Hmm the story eh? Ep 1- 2 were sort of intros, 3-7 were more of character-based, and ep8-12 were with a plot.

The storytelling method is really really dull at times. I especially only appreciated about 30% of the content in eps 3-7 on read more

Story: 9

I really liked the whole idea that there is a school that is seperated into two devisions, magic and non magical. A lot of mysterieous events happen that are unexpected and there are twists and turns. While some things are quite obvious what the awnsers are, there are things that are less so.

Art: 10

The artwork is extremely detailed, expessully the costumes of the magic users. This detail helps to give each character their personality.

Sound: 8

There were way too many explouding noises and odd noises that weren't so much needed. There was also nothing that stood out to me.

Character: 10

The cast has a wide range read more

For one reason, both have the most popular traps in anime!
reportRecommended by Jmac - Add to favorites
A girl enters a clique, and later some similar events happen in both anime.

Both feature much school life and slice-of-life.
Similar scenario of an accepted friend betraying main characters in one part of both anime series.
the personality and characteristics of the character alike

Leicester = Yuuma
Carina = Haruhi
Chelsea = Shinya

and both series has talking wands
-both male protagonists befriends magical girls
-both have somthing negative against magic
-both of them have met one of the other main characters as a child
-both of the guys have hidden powers
Both are based off eroge PC games. Both are mahou shojo and both are 12 episodes. With Nanatsuiro Drops--it's hard to tell it's from an eroge video game though.
