Synopsis

The Walpurgis Royal Academy of Machinart was founded alongside the development of "Machinart," machine magic capable of giving life and intelligence to mechanical dolls subsequently called as "automaton." Its aim: train skilled puppeteers to control the automatons, as militaries across the globe have begun incorporating Machinart into their armies.

After miserably failing the academy's entrance exams, Raishin Akabane and his humanoid automaton Yaya must defeat one of the top one hundred students to earn the right to take part in the Evening Party, a fight for supremacy between puppeteers using their automatons. The last one standing is bestowed the title of "Wiseman" and granted access to the powerful forbidden arts.

Thus, Raishin challenges Charlotte Belew and her automaton Sigmund to a duel, but before they even begin, Sigmund is attacked by other students. After saving his opponents from their assaulters, Raishin cancels the duel but is forced to search for a new way to gain access to the Party. Driven by the tragedies of his past, Raishin fights alongside Yaya to rise to the top and claim the title of Wiseman.

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

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

You know what makes someone the best? Wearing a crown and calling themselves a ‘king’ doesn’t make someone the best. No. What makes someone the best is to prove themselves in front of the whole world through hard work, determination, skill, intellect, guts, and earn the respect from their peers. At rank #1235, Rashin Akabane is far from the best. In fact, he’s close to the bottom pit of the fall outs. But for him, there’s nothing more he’d like than obtain the title “Wiseman”. Such a pretentious title is equivalent to those of a king and is the ultimate goal of a puppeteer.

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
