    Absolutely Amazing! You need to watch it.
    This show has received some really bad reviews and I don't quite understand why. All it will do is make others miss out on an awesome anime. I didn't think I'd like the show considering how terrible Magical Warfare turned out to be but I was wrong. After 1 episode I was hooked and it's now one of the anime I look forward to the most every week.

    Story- 9/10
    The story follows the main character ...

    Intrigue and inequality at Magic High School.
    This show is entertaining because:

    1.) The main character isn't weak and pathetic or moody and violent.
    In too many anime, there are two stereotypical versions of men. They either lack confidence and are flustered by every trivial event, or they are brash with a violent mood. This is the first character that I have seen in a long time that doesn't apologize for his actions, ...

    I'll keep it simple . . .
    Great series.
    It keeps you interested. It has a good plot. The characters are fun.
    It gets a bit incestuous at times, but I've never had any major problems with watching stuff like that.

    It really is worth a watch if you are interested in fantasy/sci-fi action stuff.

    Anime glosses over light novel details a bit
    There are going to be two reactions to this
    1) The story seems to be a bit rushed and/or slow in some areas, but overall the anime is okay
    2) The anime is great and I want to know what happens next

    I've read all the translated light novels and manga several times, as well as watched the anime fully a few times. What I can say is there needs to be some clarifications before watching the anime. ...

  • A great take on magic - surprisingly good
    I was doubtful when I went into this series for many reasons simply for the name and setting however I'm grateful I stuck with this until the end. The main character is likable, independent and is at the opposite side of the spectrum when it comes to being pathetic. For three quarters of the series I was very intrigued with what would happen next and it kept me wanting more. Sadly (for myself) ...

    Amazingly Wonderful :D
    Before I watched this show, I read what it would be about...I was intrigued, but not excited about it. When I actually started to watch the show I was pretty hooked. It was phenomenal. In the first episode I wanted to see how everything was going to pan out. I thought he had an ulterior motive to bring the school down, but instead he truly surprised me.
    This show was not even close to being ...

    I really enjoyed this
    10/10 would recommend. I watched this over the course of 2-3 days and really binged out on it. It takes a few episodes to really get into it but after that I was hooked and couldn't stop watching it. This show was well done and I intend on reading the light novels now

    Starts out really cool, then gets boring
    For the first half of this anime, I really enjoyed it. I looked forward to watching it every week.

    About half way through the Nine Schools Competition, I started to get bored. It was interesting, however I felt it drag. However there were still a lot of interesting things going on. However once it got to the Yokohama Disturbance, which is episode 19 I finally gave up. It felt like a rehash of ...

    the breakdown of what good anime is
    Initially i was also hesitant as im sure most viewers were. however, the plots of magic wielding teenagers that have way too much responsibility and self entitlement placed into militant, hierarchical academies coupled with mysteriously over-powered protagonists warrant some attention. The setup was great, explanation of magic casting augmented with future technology was implemented well and ...

    Great Magic Based Anime - A call for Season 2
    The modern day adaption to magic warfare in this series is cutting edge compared to most magical combat anime. On top of the advanced use of magic that this anime relies on there is a solid story line and an intelligent lead character. This rarely seen coexistence has made Tatsuya one of my favourite lead characters.

    All that's left to say is that I can only hope that a season 2 release ...
