So I was looking through the currently simulcasting anime in preparation for the summer anime season and I noticed The Irregular at Magic High School. Now I've seen the first episode and it seemed okay but I was just wondering if it is worth my time. The only reason I ask this is because I saw some very different reviews and I'd just like to ask you guys your opinion on The Irregular at Magic High School.

One more thing, Just remember to RESPECT other peoples' opinion. Even if you think the exact opposite.

Don't know what you like in anime, but I think I dislike it because I cheated and read some of the source material and like it better. I'd say if you get to episode 3-4 and don't like it, leave it alone. I see flashes of good-or-better, but the info dumps don't translate well.

I enjoy it, the mechanics behind magic in the show is a bit confusing for me to understand fully, but the show in general is cute. Seems like a harem at the moment for the main protagonist though he has no interest in any of them.

Are there a ton of info dumps? Because usually when there are info dumps I zone out and have to watch it again to understand it. Lol

Yeah. It's a scientific look at magic, so they're necessary. They just have so many they need to get out there at the start.

So basically there's a few big info dumps at the beginning to give you the information but later on it starts to actually make sense.

Ehhhh...I stand by my recommendation of watching to episode 3-or-4 and seeing if you see any flashes. Otherwise, I'd wait till the series ends and marathon it then, if you like it. The info dumps lasted till episode 6 before they started reducing, if I recall correctly.

tl;dr - I plead the fifth.

Well, that's a really tough question right now. I get that it's trying to set the stage for something big to go down, but the buildup has just been way too slow that there are those that have totally lost their patience over this show. That said, I'm enjoying this show as the visual and technical aspects are top notch, and the soundtrack is really nice. And then there are the supporting characters that I really love in this show, but unfortunately they are being badly misused. I would have given up on this show by now if it didn't have those things going for it because this show has been nothing but a massive info dumping show revolved around the MC that is OP to the point where everything revolves around him. This show is supposed to get much better later on, and I'm waiting for that day to come, so that's reason enough for me to keep at it.

I've heard that it's supposed to get better later on from multiple people so I think I'm going to wait until it finishes to marathon it. Otherwise I'd likely lose interest during the week waits for new episodes and move onto something else. And I have to agree with you on the characters. (From what I've seen at least.

Is this not a question for the disscusion thread on Magical super Nazi Highschool extraordinary incest edition?

That said, I'm finding the show rather enjoyable. I find the logic of our protagonist to be logical, the stories and events refreshing, and the visuals up to stuff.

The chief problems come from the slow pace and absurd premises. A school segregated between advanced awesome and bad at magic classes?

"Moshi-moshi, is this the 2005 Superhero movie Sky High? Someone just made an anime that totally stole your plot."

The following is a rant associated with the weeds and blooms nonsense the anime has as a plot/theme. The name "Irregular at Magic Highschool" comes from the titular character being a genius engineer and perfect set of awesome, but he is discriminated against due to having a low amount of magical power. To put it simply, he has a low power level, even under 9000. The show runs with this theme close to its chest as it shows us how damn awesome someone intelligent can be compared to superhuman magical crazy. So.... Hd is batman, everybody else is the Justice League.

Again, rant on the whole segregation thing.




I do like the show, as said its like watching Batman outsmart the Justice League the anime, but you might want to wait until its neaijg the end.

Hi. Individual personal help/advice threads are against CR's site rules so I'm closing.

I think you got sufficient replies, but in the future please post this kind of request for advice in one of the following places:

The Anime Help Thread

Recommend Me an Anime

Or (if you aren't too concerned about possibly encountering spoilers) you can ask in a specific show's discussion thread. In this case that would be:
