Starting his new term at Tanenashi High School, an unmotivated freshman searches for a club that requires minimal participation to suit his needs. He then comes across the magic clubroom, and inside is a cute upperclassman practicing her magic tricks. Suffering from stage fright that causes her to slip up in her acts, she has a tendency to end up in the most embarrassing situations. Despite having little interest in a club run by an incapable magician, the freshman finds himself involved as a new member, experiencing all sorts of awkward moments with his eccentric mentor.
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.
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.
