    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, ...

  • The Irregular at Mary Sue High School
    Yes, every protagonist, major or otherwise, is a Mary Sue. The first story arc attempts to obfuscate and manipulate your emotions by revealing that the school has both the first choice students ("Blooms") who get most the resources versus the ("Weeds") who aren't as talented and have fewer resources. So the protagonists are persecuuuted for not being conventionally talented according to the ...

  • Rich story with well developed characters
    Season One contains two main story arcs. Both are different, and very immersive. The side characters do not feel like they are just filler. They are very important to pushing the story forward and given important work that moves the story forward and helps us get to know the protaganists.

    Don't miss this series! It is worthy of re-watching after you finish it the first time.

  • Excellent animation, atypical focus on reasoning, intelligent and fun
    this series is stellar in its inclusion of reasoning, subtle humor, and exploration of interesting concepts. its also simply fun to watch for those who might be less interested in the undertones.

    i disagree with some reviewers who argue that the anime lacks character development and cogent plot development. Each of the primary characters has his/her own personality, which is slowly developed ...

    An unusually pleasant anime.
    Typically, magic in anime is boring. It is hazy, undefined, and buffed or nerfed whenever the author feels like it (in my limited experience). In this here anime, the author put some time into the development of magic, and suddenly it is pleasantly complicated, yet reasonable. Amazingly enough, it is interesting. The plot too in unusual, as is the main characters. This makes for a great breath of ...

    I need a season two.
    At first with a title like this you would cringe and back away, but stay and stick it out for the first episode or two and you'll see this is actually a great show that I hope carries on into season 2+ w/ OVA and movies, the universe is rational with solid plot mechanics. Overall animation is great, and the OST is quite good.

    10/10

    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..... ...

    gratuitous? Perhaps, but still fun to watch.
    Gratuitous? Perhaps. But still wonderfully enjoyable. The incest is a little off-putting, but it takes a back seat to Tatsuya's general bada**ery in later episodes. Perhaps Tatsuya is gratuitously overpowered, but the fact remains there is room for struggle. Until now we've only seen him, a trained soldier, fight against 'grunts'. Mostly I'm giving it 5 stars because I enjoy it, and I WANT A ...

    This is a must watch!!
    amazing artwork/soundtrack. strong main character with supporting characters. only slight problem i have is the fact that the characters don't develop very much. What you see form episode 1 is what you get all the way through. But that doesn't take anything away from the story and character relationships
