MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

For a different take of the manga, they're covering chapters well into the story right at the end of the Mahora Festival arc but before a Magic World one going on now.

Will say it feels rushed with just pieces together (you need the manga). Now it does also give some neat additions for the anime:

-First time Kotarou has appeared in any anime form, also first showing of Red Wing on screen and of Chachamaru's alternate body
(See link in the main group page for info too)
-Follows the manga so it's the first time showing anything from the Mahora Festival arc (which some consider the best one thus far) right up close to the current Magic World Arc
-Shows Chao briefly as an opponent for the first time like in the manga
-Return of the Happy Ready Go! Intro from the first anime (remixed)!
-Stylewise it's like a mix of the two animes it seems
-Using in part one mainly the training and formation of White Wing stories which offered some action, some comedy so it doesn't lean too far to one or the other end, nor be too ecchi
-With the badge chase, I loved how they showed off Yuna's team (wow those guns pack a wallop) against 2 thirds of the Library Club (go Yue and Nodoka!)
-Also considering we haven't seen Class Rep and company in a while in the manga, it was nice to see them again.

So do go enjoy it and talk about it here!

Yeah it's awesome. Altough I wish they wouldv'e showed more of the tournament (especially Colonel Sanders vs. Negi), just from the festival on is good enough for me.

I think that they are skipping too much, they should really cover a bit of the thing happened in the school festival, there are a lot of good parts in that as well

It's awesome though.
