    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, ...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    I've been looking for this.
    1 Liner:
    This anime has a stupid title and high school setting early. Don't let that stop you. Watch it.

    I've been looking for an anime that uses magic in any way shape or form with a large explained setting yet still shrouded in a mysterious main character. There is no doubt that Tatsuya is one of the most powerful magic using character's we've ever seen.

    I won't be spoiling ...

    Why this is a Must Watch;
    A lot of well-known critics who leave reviews have a reputation of being, well, critical on various aspects of a show, and I don't hate on them. An "exceptional" anime, however, doesn't necessarily have to achieve a '10/10' on every element. It's understandable that some critics leave hard reviews for this anime, but let me explain to you why this is a 5-star anime;

    The number one reason why ...

    A Must Watch for Sure!
    I've seen some negative reviews and most hold to the Main Character being too OP. It is true that our handsome lead is a: genius, composed leader, unaware lady-killer, proud being/doesn't get overly emotional hottie, brother to powerful sister, trained soldier, and can use certain types of powerful magics where others cannot. We've just found out that he can become even more powerful as well..... ...

    Sometimes you just need to watch someone be a bada$$
    Watching a calm, confident, composed main character really is a breath of fresh air. A lot of people criticize this one because they feel that the main character is a little too powerful. But I think it is nice to see once in a while. He doesn't flaunt his excellence and run around like a Demigod. There are clearly other equally powerful characters that haven't seen much development, yet. This is ...

    Magic, secrets, and intrigue... all in a day at school.
    This series is based on a light novel by the name of Mahouka_Koukou_no_Rettousei. While the anime if very good on it's own, I recommend the light novel as well to add additional depth to the story. Unfortunately the inability to convey some of those details is a stumbling point for the anime as it skips certain content (mostly minor). due only to that aspect it fell slightly to 4 stars.

    Set ...

    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.
