During a Literature Club meeting, the four club members—along with their faculty adviser's niece—suddenly find themselves with supernatural powers. Now capable of fabricating black flames, resident chuunibyou Jurai Andou is the most ecstatic about their new abilities; unfortunately, his own is only for show and unable to accomplish anything of substance. Moreover, he is completely outclassed by those around him: fellow club member Tomoyo Kanzaki manipulates time, Jurai's childhood friend Hatoko Kushikawa wields control over the five elements, club president Sayumi Takanashi can repair both inanimate objects and living things, and their adviser's niece Chifuyu Himeki is able to create objects out of thin air.

However, while the mystery of why they received these powers looms overhead, very little has changed for the Literature Club. The everyday lives of these five superpowered students continue on, albeit now tinged with the supernatural.

Ever go into a burger restaurant, only to realize that it sells some of the most kickass tacos? That's what watching Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de feels like.

Came in expecting superpower battles, came out having experienced one of the best anime dealing with friendship. Right off the bat, this anime tells a story of a group of normal high schoolers (and one primary schooler) gaining superpowers. For some inexplicable reason, they are now held with the burden of functioning as normal students with these destructive weapons at their disposal. Not surprisingly, this presents quite a problem for them; ...

When Supernatural battles become commonplace.
That's the title of this anime but it is highly misleading, I repeat, it's HIGHLY MISLEADING.
There are no supernatural battles in this anime. This anime is your average romcom harem anime situated in school and the characters all belong to the literature club.

Story 7/10:
One day, the members of a literature club get superpowers. There superpowers are such, that if it were an action, shounen anime, it would be epicly amazing. But as it turns out, you only get to see the powers being used for fun and in a few episodes. Most of the series is spent in the romcom lives ...

Okay, for starters just going to get this out of the way. Caps for emphasis. THIS IS NOT A SHOW ABOUT BIG BATTLES USING SUPER POWERS. This is a slice of life and a harem/romantic comedy. This is a show about a club of friends and them developing powers is more of a background setting thing. Apparently a lot of people missed this completely when they decided to watch it. Taking that into account, I found the show to be quite enjoyable and cute. Some pretty funny bits but not too much that made me laugh out loud. ...
