Synopsis

During the early 20th century, along with technological advancements, scientists were able to develop sophisticated magic. The combination of science and sorcery was Makinot, circuits made from spells that were put into objects to bring them to life and even gain a personality. It was developed as a military weapon and has now spread throughout the world.

Akabane Raishin is now attending the Royal Academy to become the best in the world. Accompanied by the lovely teenage girl Yaya, who is actually Raishin's puppet weapon, he plans on rocketing to the top of the class. However, his test scores come nearly dead last although his combat skills and determination are second to none. Raishin has to compete with the deadliest of classmates if he wants to come out as the king.

So I just finished this show today, and I am going to give you guys (and girls) a rating for each aspect of the show, and then I will give an overall review at the bottom.

Story: 8
The story was quite enticing, and it always left me wondering what would happen next, and it always stayed true to the main character's goal, Raishin, fighting along side his partner, Yaya. There were really no filler episodes, as each episode had some sort of meaning or foreshadowing that led into future episodes. There was also a lot of action, and the fighting scenes were very well done and read more

First of all, let me warn you that this is my first review, so I am not very adept at it. I'll do my best to give an accurate review of this show, though! I will also try not to give any spoilers.

Story: 7
Assuming that you have not read the light novel or the manga (in which case, you would have watched this show a long time ago), the story if fantastic but slightly confusing. The plot revolves around a futuristic world that has created magic through science. However, humans cannot utilize this magic themselves--rather, they use dolls/machines, or automatons, that can use magic from read more

I can probably sum this review up in 3 words: Needs another season.

Story 7.5

The story is probably not the strongest part of this show, but that's not a problem as the reason for that pertains to plot holes that could be filled with another season. The revenge aspect of the plot is a generic plot element that wasn't really brought up to an obsessive degree which is good becaUse I would've gotten annoyed by hearing about it in virtually every scene.

Art 8.5

The art and design really stands out to me, as I like how they used a steampunk style setting and used that in the read more

I'm a benevolent and tolerant guy, but there are three things I simply can't stand...
People who order me around
People who oppose me, and...
A complicated plot that is in need of more explanation!

Story: 5
The main character, Raishin, is on a quest to revenge his family and kill the person who wiped out his clan. We join him as he enters a school of some sort and his adventures as he helps out fellow students in trouble.

The problem with the story is that they left out small details that either would have helped explained certain plot holes (Such as why Yaya had to read more

Recommendations

Similarities:
- Master & Partner
- Partner wants to marry master
- Partner are not considered to be human, but master treats them as human
- Main protaganist both fights
- They call out their fighting styles or spells
- One Boss fight per arc type of anime
- Dark gloomy and bloody
Both of them involve an MC with "sub par" abilities assisted by a cute companion who happens to be incredibly strong. It is a Dragon in Seikoku no Dragonar and a Golem/Familiar/Doll in Unbreakable Machine Doll. In addition, the setting creates a very similar feel between the two. Unbreakable Machine Doll has a stronger harem element, but that doesn't mean it's a harem, while Seikoku no Dragonar seems to have more service in my opinion. If you like one, I'm pretty sure you'll like the other.
Same feel, plot wise, and both mains seem to have a dark past.
Anime dealing with partners or Duo. They must work together in order to graduate. Uncover secrets within the school and their deep dark past. One series has human/doll with powers as partners. While the other is human only with powers as partners. Both dealing with a school competiton.
While their world settings are different, both Accel World and Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai (Unbreakable Machine-Doll) involves with technology that contain main mysteries.

Both series' main female protagonist are capable of fighting in their perspective worlds and also seems to have an affection towards their partner/friend. There is drama, comedy, and romance involved although the responses the main protagonist delivers to their female friend/companion greatly contrasts with each other.

Both series also takes place at a school life setting where students learn more than just general academics.
