Synopsis

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...

The purpose of this review is primarily to address the points raised in previous reviews about this anime. If you're looking for an accurate evaluation of the show, I'd suggest watching a little yourself or holding off until more episodes are released and the story develops further. Hopefully, this review will make the anime more enjoyable for you, or atleast clear up some questions. I'll try my best to avoid any spoilers, but in case I let anything slip, I apologize in advance.

Let me first state that I believe a review should reflect upon the entire show, not just the first half of it. For read more

Instead of a number score, I'd like to give this show a rating of 'lol'

The first episode impressed me. The voice actors and Madhouse managed to create an impression of a vast, intricate world with careful writing, cinematography, and decent voice work that immediately set up some interesting personality conflicts while the 'weed' characters, who did not really trust each other, separately realize they'd need to work together to succeed as 'irregulars' at the magic high school...because the students with better grades are shooting civilian-grade combat magic at them for no reason. All the while, Tatsuya and Miyuki both want each other to themselves. They read more

Recommendations

-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
A boy with exceptional combat skills enrolls in a combat oriented high school to meet his brand new harem, with no initial intention of actually participating in combat. His dreams are shortly crushed by the student council president within the first couple of episodes.

-Chrome Shelled Regios has a far more interesting setting and a more stylized art direction.

-The characters in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei all look bland, but the dialogue between them tends to be a bit more clever.

-Both have pretty good action sequences.
