Finally we reach the end, Yumiko is a fearsome opponent in that state but the injury Misa sustained doesn't look too bad so she could still fight. But the showdown between Misa and Yumiko is pretty good, some high quality stuff there :D Misa's code ability keeps reminding me of Hecate :D Koyomi has a strong friendship with Yumiko till the end and it shows when she tried to save her from getting sucked in^^

Misa does the digital Genkidama lol

Average happy end, wasted potential like the whole season was.
Total impression: Half-assed in any direction and acted at the border to ridiculousity. There were some good ideas but that made it poorly average :/
At least I could listen to Nonaka Ai's voice

What an anti-climactic ending... oh well, I didn't expect something exciting.

I started the anime since it looked cute and since Chihiro subbed it to ep 10 at the time. At first I thought it was rather good, but it kinda went down after the time traveling.

Bleh, not enough Maho.

Gosh, Yumiko's really thankful for having her life saved.. :x
I didn't enjoy watching this anime. I wonder why I didn't drop it.
The only good thing about this show's Kaho.

I hate these kind of endings where the main character doesn't understand the situation and then tries to change something, when they really shouldn't, but everything conveniently works itself out.
Overall, probably the worst out the summer season animes that I have watched.

Best part of the show was the opening. That being said im still giving it a 7 since it had its moments, but the plot was laughably bad.

Well, it's wasn't that bad. Average. So-so.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

7-/10 for the whole show, nothing too good, nothing too bad, but over all enjoyable to watch.

Only misa's ghostscript left... right? Misa is still in our world (none of the two died I believe)

Soushirou saves the day, yet he is unaware of everything..

A waste of time really. Soushirou was somewhat interesting as a magekiller. Misa was growing on me. Koyomi annoyed the crap out of me. Yumiko came off as a bit of a spoiled brat. The villians came off shallow and underdeveloped. Kaho came off as a bit of a nonentity. I thought the idea off modern magic and making it technology sounding interesting but the only freaking attack spell was the sword thing and it got old quick

In short, as stated numerous times above, TOTALLY wasted potenital. Doubt it'll get a second season...doubt even more if I'd watch it if it did

Well, that was quite a mediocre anime, though it had some interesting premises that, as others have stated before, were executed rather poorly. I guess I watched it till the end mostly because of Misa. On the other side, the Oscar for the most annoying character goes to Koyomi. Why, o why did she have to be the lead. I'm fed up with whiny and idiotic characters like her.
Oh, and Kaho is prolly a Nagato Yuki rip-off (at least personality-wise).

What a waste of a good idea.

This anime can be much much better, but the execution sucks (and blows) it destroys everything. The only good thing I can get from this anime is the underwear-less loli. That's all.

Well that was interesting. The show wasn't that great but I managed to finish it without dropping it at least. I found myself losing focus when watching sometimes but nearing the end everything started to pick up and the intensity went up by a bit which helped keep my attention.

Kaho was pretty much the only reason why I kept watching, she's a pretty cool character and I wish we got to know more about her (funny reference to the puppet show on episode 11 at the end).

One thing I'll say though is the potential for this series to really take off. The concept of magic being codes was cool and I could see there was plenty of room to really flesh this series out. Unfortunately it did not happen that way but it was an okay experience nonetheless.

So Digitalis isn't really that bad. She's a lonely girl. She even showed concerned for Koyomi. Glad Koyomi saved her and decided to stay. And that Huang guy got sent to another dimension. All's well that ends well.

I have to say, its pretty much average show but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I already expected it won't be good since I've watched this before since it came out. And it felt really nostalgic watching this again. It has its fun moments I guess.. Its a nice blast from the past anime.

The setting about modern magic and traditional magic could have done better. It has potential for a lot, but anime adaptations are usually inferior to the original.
