In a world plagued by magical dangers and threats, there exist special warriors—known as Inquisitors—who are tasked with non-violently preventing these threats and nefarious actions. The Anti-Magic Academy is a specialized school built to educate and train these Inquisitors, which splits its students into small squads in order to train them to work together. Among these talented squads is the 35th Test Platoon, also known as the "Small Fry Platoon" due to its low ranking and incompetent members.

However, everything changes when Ouka Ootori, a powerful yet rebellious former Inquisitor, is forced into joining due to her tendency to break rules and committing a serious violation: the killing of a witch. Tempers flare upon her arrival, as she clashes with their clumsy captain Takeru Kusanagi and argues with the rest of the squad over her views on witches. This eclectic group has a long way to go if they wish to succeed and climb the ranks at the Anti-Magic Academy: they must first set aside their differences and come to work together as a team.

It’s easy to describe what Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai really is. Just like the reputation of the “Small Fry Platoon”, being described as a group of failures at a school known as the 35th Test Platoon of Antimagic Academy, this show is also a failure of itself. Before getting to the what, how, and why, there’s a few things new viewers should understand about the show.

Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai (also known as Anti-Magic Academy 35th Test Platoon) is a light novel adaptation that has over 10 volumes and currently publishing. Common logic dictates that such an adaptation could only be tolerable if read more

Art: 7/10

There isn't anything particulary new for the art. It is not bad, just okay. So animations are - there isn't spectacular show to see but it's decent. Characters could've been designed a little better for me but i didn't dislike it all.

Sounds: 6/10

Firstly, Opening and Ending songs are pretty good and somehow cachy. Too badly that there isn't too much "background" music in the actual show. Sound effects and voice acting are just okay for me - just like with art.

Character: 6/10

Basically we have here standard set of characters, typical for romance/ecchi/harem anime. Every female "hero" 35 is in love with our MC. We read more

Ah Silver Link. You...you really didn't do a good job this season, now did you...

Story: Kusanagi Takeru is a student at AntiMagic Academy. In a world where magic and witches run rampant, only one platoon is fit for the job. No, not the top ones, this little one called Platoon 35 with only 5 people. One guy and four girls. That's...that's a harem right there.

The story, as mentioned before, follows the 35th or "Small Fry Platoon", comprising of what many in the Antimagic academy call a platoon of failures. Following a more arcic setup on account of read more

It's becoming a common occurrence for various series that I know absolutely nothing about to blindside me and overtake a 4-5 hour portion of my life, leaving nothing but a few gasps and several wide-eyed stares in their respective wakes. In just this year alone, it's happened with shows like Ranpo Kitan, Death Parade, SaeKano, and so many others. Why do so many of the shows that I haven't looked into wind up being better than the ones I count down the days for? Am I just overhyping things too much? Anyway, Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon is just another example of one of read more
