First Impressions

Well, I'm a bit surprised that this already streamed online but so far looks legit, at least in the magic department. Yes, it's labeled as "harem" so expect cliches, misunderstandings, and all that other stuff. Mm, this has potential tbh.

Preview looks promising

Feels haremish despite only having one main female character so far.

The premise is interesting but the show was ruined by the much too fast undeveloped romantic parts.

Seems interesting from the pre airing they did of the first episode although I've heard they cut out quite a bit from the light novels.

Just re-watched episode again on CR in 720p and hmm...I guess, it works out for viewers interested into entertainment and does have some serious sides to it. But to take this series seriously into a critic point of view, I'd say that this series is not very well executed.

Still though, it does entertain, I'll say that much.

According to wikipedia, this has 12 light novels right now.

First episode threw a lot of things at me. Seems alright though. It has some potential.

Sounds interesting. In that case, I'm guessing that the anime series is likely to have an anime original ending in the case or maybe future seasons.

From the 1st ep, its really good so far

this ep had its funny moments, its interesting moments, and action and some ecchi all around
the characters are likable so that's also a plus

Erica doesn't seem to be overly tsundere as I thought she would be which is also OK with me

best show I've seen this season so far

First ep was really unorganized and fast... I felt like I watched three episodes in one...

Other than that, it just seems like your typical generic magical ecchi deal. Not much promise, but it could be some fun, I suppose, if later episodes are not as chaotic as the first...

It felt like we were in the middle of the story already and not the beginnings but it was pretty mixed up.

I dont like anime that start that way because you never know how they will take the next story . It was more like of showing you here are the protagonist and here are the antagonist and here they fight.

I hope they work on the character and the story or else this anime will become boring.

Eh... I dunno what it is about this summer's anime, but it seems like its mostly just filler.
