    Starts out Good, goes downhill fast.
    This show started out with promise, but then went south fast. It's too full of contrived dramatic conflicts that are so forced it's impossible to swallow. For example, a fever that makes one of the girls act drunk, gets the protagonist into a compromised situation that his "girlfriend" just happens to walk in on. Then as quickly as the drunken fever came on, it goes away as soon as it's no longer ...

    Hm... Where might you be going Magical Warfare?
    Quick synopsis:
    Magicians know about normal people, normal people don't know about magicians. All normal people can become magicians if in contact with magic while still developing (up to age of 18 I presume). There are 'evil' magicians that believe magicians are superior and should have total rule of the world (although, why not just turn all the next generation of normal children ...

    I don't even know what i Just watched....
    So basically, after a train wreck of like... 10 episodes of NOTHING important happening. You finally find out like... A small window of the past of whatever the heck has happened in this world, and only enough to wet your whistle to keep you interested to watch the last 2 more episodes of terrible-ness. Only to be left in a pile of crap and a sudden realization that you'd just wasted 4 hours of ...

    Worst scripted anime
    This has to be one the worst anime ever on Crunchyroll. I've seen some bad plots, but this one just takes the crown. Not only is the story full of plot holes, but the ending skipped so much of story its not even worth figuring out what the writers were smoking when they wrote that crap. There are anime that leaves plot at the end even better than this.

    Magical warfare is poorly written PERIOD!!

    Formulaic junk with a troll ending
    Animation: Ok, standard for the time but nothing special.
    Music: mediocre, standard for the time, but nothing special.
    Characters: Flat and predictable. It's like the writers went bargain shopping at cliche world.

    The started out as pretty standard, but mostly an enjoyable time killer. Then the second half of the show tried to cram in 100 different new things. It didn't work. They tried to ...

    This is a train wreck.
    What. Just. Happened.

    I just finished this anime, and please, please, please, save yourself from the train wreck of a plot that is Magical Warfare. If you go into this anime blind, without having read anything regarding it, you'll come out at the end knowing just as much.

    This was four and a half hours I can never get back.

    Just as expected since EP 1
    Just as I though when the first episode aired, this show isn't going to go anywhere. The fact that most people realized this after a few weeks kinda makes me sad, and there's the other fact that some people thought this was actually good. In the beginning there were already clues given out to why this show was going to fail. One its your typical boy meets girl type of beginning, second the fact ...

    Great near the start but then...
    The first few episodes I was hooked at I couldn't wait to find out what happened and I was really excited to find out what would happen but then as the episodes slowly passed by it just sloping downwards into a story that sadly to me (and potentially lots of others by reading the comments posted by others on the last episode) made no sense, and was hard to follow.

    I feel that it's really ...

    Want to give it 4 stars but...
    Show had a lot of promise at the start but never brought it together. The fact that both brothers cannot forget the past and move forward rings true but only to a point. Once you beat the crap out of someone, commit kidnapping and theft just out of spite, even a stubborn idiot will realize that pearson is not a good or decent individual. Unfortunately this is an all too common plot device for ...

    Good beginnings, bad ending
    I really liked how this anime started, and it was a lot of fun. But at the end, I just felt like I had wasted my time watching it. It felt unresolved, and left you wanting more. But not wanting more in a good way, more as in the "I'm so confused, I need more to just know what is going on".

    If you're just looking for something to fill our time, then it's there. Just don't expect it to keep up.
