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.

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 read more

So I won't go into categories, or else you won't catch the problem with this series.

The art is really good, the pace of the show is great and entertaining. I even wished they slow-paced Rettousei second season to fit this so we could enjoy more and understand more too about it. The OSTs are quite good also.

In conclusion it's a great watch. Only if you didn't watch anything of the Rettousei before. And even then I wouldn't advise it, because Rettousei is still much better and this show is just ruining it.

The biggest issue this spin off has is that the story is not coherent read more

I'm not the biggest fan of the mahouka, and to be blunt, I enjoyed this less than the parent story. It definitely wasn't the worse thing in the world, but it isn't good.

The story goes through the enrolment arc and the 9 schools competition arc, mainly through the perspectives of characters such as Miyuki, Honoka, Shizuku and new characters from third highschool. However we barley got to see any other characters, no erika, leo or mizuki. But this is a spin-off thats specifically not about those guys, so i'll let it slide.

These new characters; for example Airi, were basically all the same character. Over confident read more

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 read more
