    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, ...

    Interesting concept and well thought out
    Writers have taken on the subject of class-based societies since the days of Cinderella, but this anime actually put some thought into it. It isn't a cut and dry "weeds" are innocent/ "blooms" are villains. The writers made it more dynamic than that. The idea that there are people who will prey on the feelings of (or actual) injustice of others to achieve their own ends is a more realistic ...

    The reason I joined.
    From start to end every episode was well thought out and had a vary structured story arc. Major turning points happened in coherence with the timeframe of the story in a way as to hold the viewers interest.

    I strongly suggest watching it for yourself before making any judgments about its quality it was a vary fun watch and I hope to see a second season.

    just great, can't wait for season 2
    Great premise
    Story line was great, I like the characters. They are not over the edge but just great.
    Only bad thing is the magic system, some spells are just too illogical. But fortunatelly it doesn't take away the enjoyment. Like it.
    Certainly reccommend.

    Favorite anime so far
    Excellent plot and graphics & music. A combination of actions, romance, and comedy, strengthened by a theme of competition and self-development. Explored Japanese culture deeply and interestingly, especially in the relationships among characters. There's nothing cliche about this anime. It's entertaining and even thought-provoking. Highly recommended for anyone interested in learning from ...

    Really Liked This One...
    A thoroughly enjoyable series really liked the premise of it and that it isn't all fight's but does have strategies and planning involved. Tatsuya and his sister Miyuki enter #1 high school (out of nine) she did good on her magic test and gets put in the first class while Tatsuya didn't do as well and is put in the second class as first years which have distinct names which causes some bias ...

    Main character too OP
    Loved the concept behind the magic of this world, as well as the overall story. However even though I love badass characters in general, and though I do crush on this one's main hero Tatsuya, he (and even his friends, even the so-called Course 2 students) are just way too overpowered, and there just never seems to be any real danger that any of them will lose or fail.

    Enjoyed immensely!! Give it a shot, you might be surprised.
    Like my title says, I was skeptical but started watching on a whim. BOY am I glad I did. From the first episode I was hooked. I loved the animation, the music, the action, the characters....it was a very enjoyable anime with an interesting magic system they explain fairly well. I'd rather leave it at that so I don't spoil anything.
