tl;dr: It is a well put together ecchi comedy similar in style to konosuba but involving a magic highschool club , if you like ecchi comedy you will enjoy it if not don't watch it.
This is an ecchi comedy anime which wears its jokes on its sleave. If you are looking for highbrow comedy, a visual thriller or a heartfelt story on the level of Clanned you will not get it. This show is about ecchi comedy and it absolutely nails it. It is focused around a highschool girl and her desire to form a magic club with her new friend aptly named assistant.
This leads to many various comedic shenanigans which combined with the short run time of only 12 minutes gives the show a fast pace feel in regards to the comedy as the quick scene segments means that most of the comedy is physical or situational rather than referential or call backs like many other anime. Shows like this often get a lot of unjust criticism for pandering to the lowest common denominator but in the case of this show it manages to pull it off well with good character writing and interactions ensuring that the comedy works rather than just lots of pointless ecchi scenes strung together. Overall every time I watched it I really enjoyed it but as this review states it is down to taste if you like Ecchi comedy or comedy similar to konosuba then I would recommenced trying it as I think you would probably enjoy it. If you don't like the darkness comedic elements in Konosuba then I don't think this show is for you. Overall I would give it a 6 for the story but a solid 10/10 for how much I actually enjoyed the anime averaging out as an 8/10 which I feel is fair for this anime as you will either enjoy it immensely or it is not in your taste.
A great and hilarious show with looots of fanservice.
The art style was amazing in lots of ways. On one hand it really made the fanservice shine, on the other hand it draws out the comedy scenes
The comedy in this anime was reeeally great too. Can't count how many times I laughed in this show.
As it's a collection of short stories in short episodes this anime doesn't have that much story and the characters also just feel like an element for the show. There is some slight character development tho but most of the time they have their personality and stick to it.
There's also one character
that's highlighted pretty much in op and ed but didn't get much screen time at all, which is a bit disappointing.
Overall it's a great show you'll definitely enjoy watching and as it's not that long too you can watch it anytime I think
Before I watched the first episode of Tenjina Senpai (Magical Sempai), a little voice told me it would be a very comical experience. From the character interactions and premise itself, this show felt like one that was based off of memes and satirical humor. Is Magical Sempai really a meme or something much deeper than meets the eye?
With 12 half length episodes, Magical Sempai runs a trend of adapting storytelling in the form of humorous skits. Every episode contains various segments that connects the overall themes of the show. At the heart is the Magic Club, run by titular character Sempai. Joining him is a
young boy going by the name “Assistant”. Make no mistake, it seems that the author didn’t really want to identify our main leads by actual names. However, that’s not a significant problem. What you should be concerned about is how an anime about magic performances can be translated into entertainment.
For starters, you should never take this anime seriously as the show itself seems to be very self-aware. The first episode deals with the activities of the Magic Club. To be fair, Sempai is actually skilled but when faced with an audience, she suffers from stage fright and ends up embarrassing herself. There’s an immense amount of jokes that pokes fun of her stage fright at every chance it gets. These usually ends up with various innuendos and adult humor. Ecchi is a common sight as there’s panty shots in almost every episode. Sempai gets tied up often by her own performances and becomes a main source of fan service. Hell, it seems the anime even loves to put Sempai in sexy outfits ranging from gym clothes to Chinese dresses. If you came for fan service, you're going to be pleased.
Despite being the main characters, we do meet a few others ranging from Sister (the Magic Club advisor), Madara-chan (Chemistry club president), Saki-chan and her overweight brother, Masashi. Their purpose in the show is mostly to amplify the comedy with their various personalities. Most of them somehow gets involved in one way or another with the Magic Club. Saki-chan is also a target for fan service once you see how much she is advertised. With this ridiculous cast of characters, you really should just sit back and watch this with an bucket of popcorn. We’re not going to see much character development. The anime’s goal is to entertain in the most straightforward way possible. It uses its skits that focuses on daily activities at school, mostly associated with the Magic Club.
I’m not a big fan of magic although this show actually focuses some of its screen time to explain the various tricks and performances. Most of this is explained by Sempai in a casual style while inserting its gimmicky humor. There’s actually a decent amount of magic performances such as card tricks, spoon-bending techniques, the box illusion, pulling pigeons out of hats, etc. If you’re familiar with magic, you’ve probably heard or seen most of them before. When translated into this anime, it becomes more of a meme with how silly it turns out to be.
It’s not a full length anime but having a show like this is no less than some popcorn entertainment. Every episode contains enough skits to entertain while poking fun of the characters’ personalities. Sempai is the poster girl who also becomes the main source of jokes in the show. Whether you like her character isn’t all that important. In essence, you’re going to just have to take what Magical Sempai throws at you. Then in the end, somehow, some way, you may not regret it.
Ladies and Gentlemen , this 12 min long anime has just ended.
Pros: Every once a while we get to see a variation of Hutaro from Daganshi Kishi, play this fumbling Magician wannabe, who happens to the last one in her club.
Cons: Basically, the plot about her were it has more to do with her panchira and big size melons than the anything else.
Pros: That would be the girls panchira ( where Tejina has the most), and bust size of the 2 girls except the 4 eyes one.
Cons: I kinda hate that the boys were illustrated as dorksters, were one was more of a
skinny gaming loner and the other one ought be a sumo wrestler with his big stomach.
Pros: Tejina's cutie voice and the opening.
Cons: Kitamura Eri was just too old to voice Saki.
Pros: It has more to do with the eye candy Tejina's panchira and boobs, in fact her assets were pretty much the character around here.
Cons: Tejina was simply annoying, not to mention about her being this double standard bimbo, who like magic but can't stand audience, Saki on the other hand was more like a bitch with poor taste in men, like c'mon being this brocon to her fatso ototo. Also, it was kinda annoying that Madara's character was never fully utilize by this anime's director Usui, Fumiaki of LINDENFILMS.
Pros: I basically have mixed reactions with this anime, cu'z in one hand it was enjoyable. But.................
Cons: There was that part of me were I'm soooo pissed about this anime.
It was Ok to some extent, but this ain't worth a 7 and above and only those with a Hotaru fetish would give this a high score and those who can't get enough of voluptuous school girl eyecandy like that of Tejina would go for it.
This show reminds me very much of Aho Girl. If you enjoy shows that aren't serious and you don't mind cheap jokes and forced ecchi-ness, then this anime might be for you.
Sempai is a magician wannabe who fails at every trick she attempts. Each failure results in embarrassment with erotic innuendos. The jokes are lowbrow. Even Assistant-kun's reactions show the same sentiments within the show; no one tries to mask the cheapness of it all. There are parts of this show that made me laugh and I very much wanted to like it a lot, (especially because I really enjoyed Aho Girl), but alas, the
humour and characters both miss the mark.
Given that the episodes are short (about 12 mins), it's an easy watch to pass time. Actually, each episode is further divided into parts, which appeals to my short attention span. Each "story" is around 4 minutes, so this is a show to have on hand when you don't have long lengths of time to spare.
Takeaway: An anime to watch when you need a short comic break. (Especially if you're really tired from work and don't have the mental capacity to judge how cheap the jokes are.)
I've been watching this on Crunchyroll where it goes by the title of Magical Sempai. I usually don't look for ecchi series, but after seeing a couple memes and comments on YouTube, I decided to give this show a shot. It did not disappoint.
Each episode is roughly 15 minutes with 5 shenanigans each, for bite size bits of bumbling magic and mayhem. The jokes are fun with just enough ecchi to help the comedy without overpowering the mix.
There is nothing groundbreaking about this show, but its not trying to be anything more than good fun. I recommend this show to anyone looking for a
little anime frivolity in their day and hope that the show will continue to deliver laughs.
Out of all the shows that came out this season, this one (and Try Knights) were the least impressive of the bunch. This just came off as a little trite and boring in the first couple of episodes. Thankfully, after the first two episodes, the show starts getting it's groove of making itself 100% cheese and it kinda works. I'm not saying I'm gonna come back for this show, but as a way to get my fan service for the last 12 weeks, it wasn't a bad thing at all.
The production, all things considered, is actually decent for what it is. The animation is nice
to look at and occasionally can be a little pretty. The music is just kinda goofy. The OP is basically an ear worm and while the ED is nice, it isn't the greatest contrast to the OP. Yeah, I know this is a stupid criticism for a show that's basically what I wish the magic club in my school was like, but it's still there.
Look, if a show like this can make me laugh with a stupid line like "Take back my boner", then you can probably enjoy. Really the biggest strength comes in with VAs and the writing. The VAs are what really make this show enjoyable for what it is, especially Senpai and Assistant, who bring a lot of life into the roles that easily could've been stale in episode 4. The writing isn't amazing, but it does manage to have some good jokes, at least one every episode, but the show does heavily rely on misunderstandings as jokes. But the show can also the nice moment here and there. It's surprising considering the material they had.
Overall, Tenjina-senpai is a stupid, but fun show. I don't see myself returning but I won't say I didn't enjoy myself while watching. If you want to see magic + a lot of fan-service, this show isn't the worst thing to watch.
There really is nothing that needs to be said other than the fact that this anime isn't even remotely funny.
If you want to watch an entire anime of the annoying "Oh no! The girl I like accidentally showed me her panties!" joke from every ecchi anime ever made go for it. Otherwise, watch a better ecchi anime. I don't understand how this anime got even remotely positive reviews when there are actually fun ecchi anime out there like Monster Musume.
Literally every joke is the same, I'm not exaggerating. Senpai tries a magic trick, senpai fails and gets into a lewd situation. That's the entire anime.
There is no overall narrative, nor is there any reason to watch this over better things. I don't understand how people don't get bored with the exact same setup and punchline several times per episode.
Don't support anime which were clearly written to appeal to a demographic instead of any real passion or creativity. "I want to make a shittily written ecchi anime but I need a gimmick for it to stand out. I know, I'll just google a few magic tricks!" That's how this was made, no passion for anything but money.
There's no specific plot to it, the show just moves.
It's a laid back and simple show, that anyone can get into. If you can handle fan service, cause that's basically what this show is. Sempai getting herself into unfortunate lewd situations. If you're a fan of eechi, this should be on your list.
The art is good at best, no complaints on it really.
In other words, it's short & sweet.
WATCH: If you want fan service, something simple & fast (only 15 mins/episode)
DON'T WATCH: If you don't like fan service, or want a plot. You ain't finding that here.
No honest person is watching Tejina-senpai for reasons above gag comedy smothered with fanservice. Fair criticism of Tejina-senpai must come in how the fanservice is actually being delivered and, to a degree of lesser importance, whether or not the comedy is effective. It is there that I take issue with this anime’s lukewarm at best approach to eroticism and a repetitive punchline that wears itself thin as the episodes progress.
The gist of Tejina-senpai is that Tejina has a sexy body that through failed magical acts is exposed to the gaze of the viewer. But this anime goes out of it’s way to ensure that the
entirety of Tejina's body is censored. There is always a random object magically obstructing nudity and even at one point milktoast MC kun’s hand excitedly waving over her nipple to ensure the viewer cannot see. This may seem like a pedantic criticism only uttered by degenerates of the highest order, of which I am one, but if you are watching this anime primarily for the fanservice it can feel like a slap in the face to be teased with the full picture only to get a snapshot and wonder about the possibilities. Sometimes censorship can be forgiven with a distinct artstyle that is well defined enough to encourage the viewer to use their own creative imagination. but the artstyle of this anime is very generic, far from that of Dagashi Karashi where the designs of the characters are utterly gorgeous even without ever being exposed. Such is not the case in Tejina senpai where the attractiveness of the characters is limited to the proportion of their bodies.
Just as damning as the censorship is the fanservice rarely being animated. We are often given vertical panning still shots of characters in a variety of skimpy costumes that are no different from what can be found on deviantart. I mean I can scroll up and down on a downloaded artwork and get the same effect. A huge part of the appeal of watching fanservice in anime as opposed to a comic is that we can see these drawings come to life. Tejina senpai fails to follow through with the added oomph that ecchi anime should promise.
To say the males are underwhelming is an understatement. The main guy whose name I don't care about looks like the most average of average joes and his best friend is obese. I understand that the point of having average guys being surrounded by attractive women is to sympathize with the viewer, but this is to the sacrifice of those who prefer their ecchi narratives to have guys with some defining feature other than niceness to make their harem feel somewhat realistic.
I’ve seen some commenters compare the comedy in this anime to Konosuba, primarily due to the commonality of a failed magician who thinks they're better than they actually are and the strong fanservice. The obvious difference is that Konosuba functions as a parody of rpg gaming and isekai narratives that are all the rage in seasonal anime today, whereas the only basis for the jokes in Tejina senpai is to set up the fanservice. We are privy to the same gags that harp on the same punchline over and over again that you either laugh at or not with no need to think about how they were constructed. Though it can be unfair to compare a short to a fully supported TV series, the difference in between how the two execute their comedy is still relevant.
It is not imperative for an ecchi show to have nudity. and it's not that important for an ecchi show to even be funny. But you better bring the heat in terms of fanservice if literally everything else is lacking and Tejina senpai just doesn't do that enough to satiate the degenerate consumer of all things ecchi. What could have been something great that improves upon the source material, like an anime should purport to do, instead is a run of the mil ecchi that can be found pretty much everywhere on a dartboard of the genre.
Tejina Senpai a wonderful collection of reoccurring theme sketches, with a small handful delivered to you each 12 minute episode. This anime doesn't follow your traditional linear plot-lines, so if you expect to much from it, you are only setting yourself up for disappointment. The earlier sketches do a fantastic job introducing you to the characters and setting the general foundation, but after that its business as usual until the final credits roll. You'll watch sketch after sketch of somewhat
scandalous humor and this can almost make it feel more like a recap reel than a stand alone anime, but I enjoyed it just the same.
Magical Senpai is about a busty babe that dreams of becoming a grand illusionist, only to be trapped in the reality of being a crummy magic club president that suffers from awkward moment inducing stage fright. Our point of view often comes from the interior monologues of series..
..?protagonist? ... The Assistant. Assistant ends up being railroaded into joining the Magical Senpai's magic club, while not impressed with her skills, ends up staying for the view. It really is that simple, so I have to give it a simple [6/10]
The art an animation for Magical Senpai are really basic at their core, but as someone who did their time with the linking rings, I can confirm they did an awesome job at portraying amateur level attempts at your basic sleight of hand. It was believable and almost unnecessary since the draw was more the fan service than the magic. So for attention to detail I am gonna give art a [7/10].
The OP and ED for this show fit so well. The OST in general makes you feel like you've tuned in to the show hundreds of times. You add that to the consistant performances from the voice actors, and you will find another [7/10] for sound.
Characters, all five and three halves of them. The amount of faces in this series are so few, it puts a lot of demand on the quality of the ones they do have. Senpai gets there though, that character is just so endearing and fun, even without the fan service I could have still enjoyed this series. It's a tiny bit gratuitous, but I am giving characters an [8/10]
Sure, I enjoyed it. I am not the worlds biggest fan of ecchi though, but not a hater. [7/10] I came for the bozangas but stayed for the abra kadabra and "oh ho ho ho"s .
Magical Senpai is short, and it's almost as sweet as it is lewd. While there are MANY short shows as well as standard length programs I'd recommend watching before this, I don't think the average anime fan would feel wronged by the experience. Especially since this anime requires such a small investment of time.
I wasn't a big fan of watching seasonal shows, because I usually prefer to watch the whole thing with a really fast pace, usually finishing an anime in one or two days. I decide to try to keep up with seasonal shows and Tejina-senpai was one of those.
This anime really got me at the very first episode. I didn't really feel like I was watching some well constructed plot-wise masterpiece, but still, it accomplished everything it was trying to do.
Considering this is a pure comedy anime, the jokes were pretty good and I found myself laughing at most of the skits. Even in the ones
I didn't laugh, the good fanservice was enough to keep me with my eyes glued at the screen. For the ones who plan to watch this anime, I might just say, don't get your hopes up, this is just an really entretaining show and nothing more than that. Have fun!
I don't about you, but comedy is subjective, and so are each and every comedy anime in all forms. And this season, we have the usual high school banter of a magic club, that consists of Tejina-senpai (the anime is very loose on her naming), the lovely Assistant, plus adding some clowns Saki and Masashi. It's so weird that I find that the names aren't so much of an importance, but then again, it doesn't displace the importance, that is the magic tricks of Senpai.
"I can read you like an open book" is the best description that I can give to Tejina-senpai as the textbook
sample of magic tricks gone comedically wrong, even as the Assistant tries to help her regain her posture, in both confidence and showing off her magic, to end up being nothing more than being an erotic figure herself. Even as Assistant-kun tries to contemplate with her every wrongdoing, he doesn't look like the type to give up on her, always trying to make a "path of light" for her next steps, be it showing her magic tricks to kindergarteners or even the small public audience of passer-bys. And whaddya know, since ecchi is one of the main tropes of the manga, it makes sense to have Senpai as sorta of an "ahegao" feeling, a cheap one that depends on your acceptance levels of comedy. Add in the new members Saki and Masashi, whom Saki will ONLY direct the "magic" onto the obese Masashi, this recipe is turning out to be a disaster that's full of comic relief (that if you like it, it's good I guess).
The manga itself is staged like a 4-koma manga, so it has many parts to each episode, containing about 4 to 5 side stories each within a 12-minute runtime. This might be one of those instances where the stories are so damn short (and yes it is), so much so that the production team tries to adapt as much as possible to contain within the timeframe. Hear me out, I'm not saying that it's bad, but since when this idea is ever conceived good to us the audience, having even lesser time to watch anime, and 12 mins seems like a good short break for us to digest this fast. Sometimes it felt like breakneck speed trying to keep the coherent "plots" of "the adventures" of the cast here, and that could turn bad, like this anime. But it is whatever it is, so I'm not one to judge.
As per usual, Liden Films' quality is as decent as it comes, nothing much to say about it, just that it delivered on the ecchiness, that's all. Same goes with the OST, as it is for a minute's worth of song filler, and all I can say is a good job to the artists of both the OP and ED, decent songs for a short series I guess.
If you like similar short series such as Aho Girl with the tenacious amount of overflowing ecchi that's placeholders everywhere, you will definitely like this low-brow. Otherwise, if you're on a break to watch some shorts, I guess this is okay to watch...? Just maintain your sanity for decent comedy.
13 minute short episodes of the happenings in the Magic Club which is the storage room for the Science club. Senpai and her Assistance being the main characters with the Assistant actually the protagonist.
The series is nicely done with good art that is pleasing to view.
The opening is a nice tune and the ending also is nice.
Characters develop as best they can in the short time frame. You do get to know people quite well and the generic tropes and fanservice that is played out. Madara-san is one of the better characters to which her actions are a little bit less expected
since she is not in the club directly. She is the best girl of the series and was hopeful for some romance to blossom for her and the assistant.
The series is an enjoyable watch which you could easily throw an episode in at very short notice.
Overall it is a good series. It doesn't do anything different or spectacular but also does very little wrong in the grand scheme of things.
Another seasonal show, except one of the few that has caught everyone's attention. Ahead will be spoilers if you haven't already watched it, or are yet to catch up.
Story - Plot? There's none. Its just ecchi humour so if you like that type of stuff then you'll probably enjoy this show. Other than that its just about some magical senpai (hence the title) who loves magic, but due to stage fright keeps messing up when she has an audience. She has an assistant kouhai who is helping her club not completely die though.
Art - I like the art style.
Characters - magical senpai who manages to
be suggestively lewd instead of magical, disinterested assistant-kun who hangs around for the wrong reasons, weird sister teacher, and now a cliche imouto couple which I will still never understand.
Enjoyment - You can't watch for the plot if there's no plot. You'll like it if this is your type of humour though so depends on the person.
Overall - Another seasonal show masterpiece that'll go down under when this season is over. Not an outstanding work of art, but its above some of the rancid shows that we'd rather not see again and a good 12 minutes if it matches your type of humour.
There's nothing much to the show. As an ecchi, the main jokes revolve around Sempai finding herself in compromising positions such as getting tied up; having her clothes get damaged; or in one instance, forgetting to bring clothes to dress into as part of one of her street performances. That kind of humor gets really old because of how predicatble it can be. Going onto animation, it's average. Honestly because of the many pantyshots and boob bouncing, it almost becomes bland as it happens in nearly every episode.
The opening and ending themes are decent as is the voice acting. There is a small number
of characters in the series with each varying in terms of how they are played. The Assistant is generic and mostly serves as the stand-in for the audience observing Sempai's misadventures. He is the straight man of the relationship, but at the same time, I found myself slightly disliking him because of the fact that he makes it clear often that he is largely interested in Sempai for her breasts and her other attributes. The sixth episode in particular has him take advantage of hypnotism to get Sempai to do whatever he wanted. A really shallow guy that is.
Sempai is funny with her stage fright, but this also tends to get in the way. She is greatly passionate about magic, which isn't bad...but whenever she tries to recruit new members to the club, she comes off as annoying. Especially because there is no sign of her getting over her stage fright. It is something that continually gets in the way of progress. I understand that's a part of the joke -- she performs better when she isn't in front of anyone else -- but it quickly stops being funny quickly.
Saki is a big-breasted gyaru girl who does street performances. From the looks of it, she seems that she'll be set up as a rival of Sempai's. There's nothing to her aside from the fact that she has a disturbing crush on her obese little brother. Just her practically foaming from the mouth when thinking about her brother is unsettling. Then there is Sempai's older sister...Sister....who is an airhead who loves to tease her little sister and offers to be the Magic Club's advisor (she's mdoerately a good character), and Madara who is the club president of the Chemistry Club who takes a disliking for Sempai to the point that she loathed having the scientific tricks she does be equated to the stage magic that Sempai does. For the most part, all the characters are defined by one trait no more, no less.
Overall, Magical Sempai is a slightly below average series that if you love ecchi humor, I'm positive you'll have a good time with this one. Each episode is comprised of small segments that run for 12 minutes, so it's not too much of a burden to watch. But know that you are getting exactly what you'd
So, Tejina-Senpai is a good example of an anime that showcases the cultural divide between the west and Japan. In the west, this type of series is good for memes and trashing on and that's about it. In Japan, this anime is actually extremely popular and is really the type of stuff that many otaku are into. It's ecchi, it's silly, it's an overall good time. Will you get some really deep and substantive plot that you need to tune in each week to learn more about? No. And if you are looking for that, you're in the wrong place. Tejina senpai is
a good way to wind down and relax on a Wednesday morning/Tuesday night and to get some good dirty laughs. The series has tonnes of Ecchi moments involving Senpai and the guy MC and that's what makes it such a big draw in Japan. Sexually repressed society + Ecchi anime, match made in heaven.
As for the review breakdown:
Art:10, really love the characters designs and proportions ;)
Sound: it's a SOL so no real test to this, but everything is nice and clear.
Character: I love the MC and Senpai's interactions as well as the chem club leader who reminds me of the third wheel from Senko San
Enjoyment:10, again, this is not for everyone, but for me, if I enjoy a show, it's an easy 9 or 10 and since I really enjoy and consistently watch the series, this gets a 10.
Overall: If you like ecchi humour, fanservice, big anime tiddies and a good laugh, this is for you. If you are too uptight and not into that type of stuff, you won't enjoy this. It's not groundbreaking or deep, but it will cheer up your day, in my opinion.
It's an ecchi comedy about a senpai that's bad at magic tricks and damn does it put a smile to my face, senpai's seiyuu and obviously enjoying herself and the ecchi is damn good as well.
If you wanted a show about a useless senpai ala aqua you've come to the right place. If you've come for anything serious well this is the wrong anime for you.
In terms of comedy if your expecting something like Kaguya-sama your about in the right place, it has kaguya's absurd facing reality themes in comedy, as the senpai's magic tricks are contrasted with her stage-fright and incompetence.
assistant and the senpai are a great double act with the senpai's seiyuu providing 80% of the comedy, the other 20% is from her failures in magic.
I wasn't that interested in this show when it came out, but still, I'm a fan of ecchi comedies, and Magical Sempai just so happen to fit the bill, so I thought now would be as good a time as any to watch it. So, was it good? Well, let's hop on and find out!
Warning! Spoiler alert!
Magical Sempai follows the adventures, or rather, misadventures of the titular character and her group of friends as they practice their magic tricks and attempt to become true stage magicians. Well, at least Sempai does, Assistant just there to make sure she doesn't get hurt while Masashi and Saki
just want to practice street performances. Anyway, this show largely episodic in nature; there are a few plotlines that last a few episodes, but nothing that can compose a true overarching narrative.
Comedy is this show's meat and potatoes, with Sempai trying and, regularly failing, to perform magic, with her Assistant normally rushing in to bail her out of trouble. While the comedy in and of itself is fine, the lack of a deeper emotional component might turn viewers. I mean, there are episodes that imply there's something between Sempai and Assistant but these moments are overshadowed by longer, more consistent periods of comedy and ecchi content.
And speaking of ecchi content, this show has ecchi to spare. Whether's scenes of panties or Sempai's surprisingly endowed chest, there's plenty of sex appeal in this show. At one point, Assistant says that, for all of Sempai's ineptitude, she's fairly attractive.
Magical Sempai is a show for the fans of ecchi comedies, so if you're a fan, you're likely to enjoy this show. Otherwise, you may want to watch something else. (6/10)
Sempai is one of the funniest characters of the year. I got really attached to her because of her ineptitude, silliness and resolve to become a stage magician despite her lack of talent with stage magic. Even when her tricks backfire, Sempai never stops trying to be better and that's something I can admire. She's a character you can both laugh at and feel sorry for at the same time. Thankfully, her Assistant is always there to save her whenever something goes wrong. Sure, he often complains that he has to look after such a helpless girl, but deep down, Assistant would never abandon her in her time of need. I think I would have enjoyed the show a bit more if it had advanced their relationship beyond just… sempai and assistant.
Despite the small size of the supporting cast, the characters manage to be fairly entertaining. There's Saki, the aspiring street performance with an obsession with her brother, Masashi, Saki's brother who goes along with her sister's antics, and Madara, who is just like Sempai but with science instead of magic. We also get some fine comedy thanks to Sempai's big sister, who enjoys putting Sempai in ridiculous situations. (7/10)
For a show with a 12-minute run per episode, its visual quality is actually kind of impressive. Sure, it looks cheap sometimes but does fit into the show's quirky and hilarious nature. Also, it seems like a huge portion of the budget went into the fanservice moments. Seriously, the show never stops reminding us how big Sempai's breasts are or how curvy her body is. If there's one thing Assistant likes about her, it's her physical attractiveness. (8/10)
Magical Sempai has a fantastic opener. It's easily one of the best things about this show. Praise should also be given to the two leading actors. Kaede Hondo is a fine actress with huge comedic talent. I don't think there could have been a better choice to play the titular character. Despite being a newcomer, Aoi Ichikawa did a fine job as the Assistant. The two leads have excellent chemistry with one another and I don't think I would have enjoyed the show as much as I did without their talent. (8/10)
Magical Sempai is a fine show. Sure, it's no masterpiece and the narrative progression could use a bit of work, but you can totally appreciate it for its comedy and fanservice elements. It can get a bit repetitive sometimes, but it finishes on a strong note and I definitely recommend it to fans of ecchi comedies. (7/10)
This show is absolutely wonderful and really funny, the characters are super enjoyable and each have their own quirks, the episodes are about 13 minutes long so they are super easy to breeze through and they are well worth it, sometimes shows with short times don't quite pack enough punch but that is definitely not true for this one, theres enough time to establish character and make you laugh consistently.
The show stays true to itsell episode to episode creating the same kinda format. Sempai wants to do magic, she messes up a little, embarrassing situation, hilarity resumes. To summarise the show, Magic Waifu, innocente but
still suggestive comedy and a great time.
