It has been a century since "true magic"—initially thought to be merely folklore and legend—had become commonplace technology worldwide. First National Magic University Affiliated High School (First High), one of the nine magic academies in Japan, admits two skilled siblings—Miyuki and Tatsuya Shiba—into the academy. First High splits its students into two groups, Course 1 and Course 2, based on entrance exam scores. This causes an apparent disdain for the Course 2 students, as they are labeled "Weeds" by Course 1 students, who alternatively call themselves "Blooms."

Tatsuya is admitted to Course 2, while his sister Miyuki joins Course 1 as an honor student. Miyuki wishes to show First High that, despite her brother being labeled as inept, he is among the best magicians in the whole world.

Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei retells the story of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei from the point of view of Miyuki and the other female characters.

Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei (2021)

First off, if you have not seen the first season of the parent show then do not watch this until you have done so unless you are open-minded. Going into this various people jumped on the 'its a new season then slated the show for being confusing since the story is already well established. This is because it is a spin-off, not the parent story. It does a marvellous job of filling in masses of gaps in the main show to bring us to the end of the first season and slightly beyond.

The art of the show is a slightly ...

Mixed Feelings
I loved Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, I gave it an 8/10! But this show, Yuutousei, does not live up to its predecessor whatsoever. The premise of this show is that it takes the exact same events from Rettousei, dumbs them down, and adds more incest. The best part about Yuutousei, in my opinion, is the sound design, not really a great compliment in perspective of my other ratings since this is a TV series and not a CD. The art is good, but the characters seem flat and one dimensional. This show is a hollow shell of Rettousei with all the goodie scooped out. Yuutousei ...

This show had so much potential. If Irregular was about his brother Honor could've been about Miyuki. Instead all we get is a generic slice of life with some throw-ins from the main series.

I know they could've done something better here, that short flashback on episode 13? Those would've been nice. Explain the secrecy their past, what they've been through. This could've been a perfect setup for another season. Seeing their past through Miyuki's eyes, things she went through during the series. I mean in Irregular we had everything going on in-between his school life and his covert operations, surely Miyuki did more than just ...
