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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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.

To get a good idea of what this show is like, just imagine what a 6 year-old boy would write if he was trying to make a story with "badass" protagonists and "evil" villains.
- It has your generic harem MC (Main Character) who thinks girls have cooties.
- It has the dark&edgy side-characters repeating the same cringe-worthy intro lines every few minutes.
- It has the laughably poorly-written bad guy who is so poorly written that he literally says "My greatest pleasure in life is making people sad". Yes, he actually says that.

As with most harems, the redeeming quality is that the girls ...
