MagiReco was one of my favourite shows of 2020, so when I heard we were getting another season I was ecstatic. While I enjoyed the show a lot, it was undeniably lacking in some areas. Mainly in pacing and animation. The second season has rectified all of those issues and deviated substantially from the game’s story, for the better in my opinion.

MagiReco season 1 heavily followed the game’s storyline, at times to the detriment of the anime. It’s rare that games perfectly translate to anime adaptations, so it presented some issues with pacing at times. For this season, SHAFT decided to do their own thing read more

Shaft has always been my favorite animation studio due to their exceptionally unique art style and story telling methods along with creating or adapting several of my favorite series including 3 gatsu no lion, Monogatari and of course Madoka Magica. Ever since finishing up 3 gatsu it felt like Shaft has been on a steady decline as a studio, animation quality dropping and story telling becoming sub par, it was disappointing to see my favorite studio fall so far. When I first saw Magia Records season 1 I could see a low quality gacha game cash grab coming from miles away, but I still held read more

If you thought the pacing in Season 1 was bad, wait until you get a load of this garbage.

Magia Record Season 2 is...incomprehensibly awful. I’m glad that some viewers were able to enjoy this season, but I absolutely did not.

Nearly the entire second half of the mobile game’s story is condensed into these 8 episodes. It’s a complete frankenstein of a narrative, especially when taking into account the anime-original plotlines. Season 2 presents such a freakish amalgamation of plot threads and character arcs that it best serves as an example of how not to adapt a story.

Since so much is being squeezed into these read more

It seems like something bad is happening at SHAFT studios or maybe the person who wrote this is bad at their job. Either way the second season is another example of when people don't learn from their mistakes they will do the same mistake. The anime no longer follows basic magica puella story writing or cares anything about the characters, lore or story.

Story 1/10 - If i could give it a ranking of zero in this site i would, SHAFT or whoever wrote this clearly didn't care about anything. EP 1 and 2 are filter episodes, you do not need to watch them to understand read more
