In this modern magic action story, Takeshi Nanase is an ordinary high school boy who has a somewhat dark past. Due to certain circumstances, he formed a "fake" couple with his childhood friend Kurumi Isoshima, but otherwise, he lives a normal life. However, one day, he comes across a girl named Mui Aiba, in a uniform he has never seen before, collapsed on the school campus. This encounters changes Takeshi's destiny completely. Mui tells Takeshi that she is a magician, and she apologizes, for she turned Takeshi into a magician, too. What Takeshi once knew as one world is actually two—the world where magicians live and the world where humans live.

Before this show came out I was fairly excited for it, despite the premise being nothing I haven’t seen before. But as it was airing, I realized what an absolute train wreck it turned out to be. There are very few good points to this anime; each second is wracked with cringe worthy cliché moments. The characters are absolutely awful, and the plot is so bad I was struggling to stay awake throughout the entire thing.

The story seems cool at first, magic high school, awesome weapons and fights, etc, but the way it was executed can only be described as terrible. The plot is read more

The phrase of "Dont judge book by its covers" is really true. When we all seeing the short explanation by this anime, we're gonna imagining something great, magnificent, epic battles and stunning art. But in the end it was all just an illusion. Illusion that been made by this anime, summary we're being deceived.

Mahou Sensou or Magical Warfare is anime that technically is about action and magic like the genre has said and thats it. If we're talking about plot, it hasnt. Well, at the first you would introduce that the world has two side world, first it was human world and the other one read more

Both protagonist happens to bump into a girl, and without knowing much about them decided to help them. They soon travel and help protect the girl without much decision.

Both anime involves fighting and magical weapons/power, both girls use guns while the male protagonist uses a sword. If you enjoy magical fighting than you'll like these both.
Similar powers and theme are presented in both series. Main character from both series have the power to see into the future. Their eyes glow too. MC friend in both series can use fire magic. The Red World is very similar to "The Ruined World". Only people who have special abilities can enter these worlds/dimensions.
