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

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei or "The Irregular at Magic High School. A story that doesn't follow your everyday anime guidelines. If you are looking for a anime that gives you in-depth reasons for why the world works as it does, rather than the weak plot device of "oh it just happens", then this may be the show for you.

Story: 7
We start off in a futuristic world recovering from a world war that led to the now prospering discover of magic. While the magic itself can be used by only a minority of the population, it has become a science to individuals capable of wielding read more

-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.
