Following the events of "Scorched Halloween," the world is introduced to a terrifyingly powerful Strategic class magician. In an effort to uncover the identity of this person, the United States of the North American Continent (USNA) dispatches the most powerful asset in its arsenal to Japan on a covert mission—the elite magician unit "Stars" and its commander, Angie Sirius.

At First High School, Tatsuya Shiba and his friends are having a farewell party for Shizuku Kitayama, who is leaving to study abroad in the USNA as part of an exchange program. In her place, the group welcomes the beautiful Angelina "Lina" Kudou Shields. Around the same time, Tatsuya is informed about the USNA's plan to uncover his true identity.

Elsewhere in Tokyo, numerous reports arise of seemingly random bodies found drained of blood. Dubbed as the works of a vampire, it does not take long for Tatsuya to connect the dots and realize that it is almost impossible for the timing of these events to be mere coincidences.

There is an uncanny misconception floating around in regards to "overpowered characters" and that according to such existence the whole show is deemed bad from the get-go. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei also fell into this rabbit hole and apparently even our savior Tatsuya can't do much to stop all the lies from spreading. I didn't mean to, but you leave me no choice - I'm putting an end to this pandemonium.


After 5 years of agony waiting for a sequel with only a side-story movie put in between, the second season of Mahouka came in all of its glory featuring one of the fan-favorite protagonists in read more

If there’s any one anime, any one popular anime in particular, I could say is feasibly written by an AI scrolling the algorithm, it would be The Irregular at Magic High School. Why so?

Because the show does not have a spec of human emotion in it.

Ignorance is the word of the day here folks. It was fairly apparent in the first season of Mahouka, and somehow even moreso here. Every aspect in this season, from the narrative, to the soundtrack, to the characterization, to the tension, to the worldbuilding is divorced from what’s commonly viewed as respectable. It’s not quite as insultingly awful as Season read more

Honestly, I am surprised that I did not enjoy this. I love power fantasy anime and this is that. I also liked the first season but for reason I did not enjoy this. This did have nice animation, good voice acting and a banger opening but for some reason I did not enjoy at all.

Story: Some ships were bombed by a mystery person who was like one of the main characters. Then Tatsuya did some epic things and fights happened. Then some mystery foe which I don't remember what it was but there was some fighting with them

Characters: Mostly bland. Tatsuya is just your average read more

Finally, the long anticipated return of one of the best LN franchises of all time to the anime medium. Mahouka does not disappoint at all in its second season and if anything, 8bit have taken the series to new heights.

I’ve spoken for weeks about how Mahouka is clear of any other anime this season. I stand by that statement with this review as well. It was by far my favourite show of the season and if you enjoyed the first season, you will love this. When Mahouka switched from Madhouse to 8bit, I was a bit skeptical about how they would handle adapting the series. read more
