  • Composed, ice cold, and a badass.
    That describes the main character, He's super powerful, and you basically just want to see him be a badass and bring some justice to the world. My score is a 4 but that's not because this is a bad anime, its actually very good. I just think it could benefit with a second season, we were left with a lot of "wat" at the end.

    Art/animation: The characters all have simple but unique designs, no ...

    Not quite as good as some claim
    Over the course of two days I have watched this entire series. I've not read the light novels so I can't comment on how they are good and true to the novels, so I will just be focusing on the anime.

    First off, the magical dynamics. They go into massive detail on how the magic works to the detriment of the story. I mean, when you take 10 minutes of the story time to explain how a spell works, ...

    Its an anime, nothing worthy of note really.
    Its not bad. Has an interesting concept behind it along with a decent start filled with development of the world and it's mechanics. After about halfway in, it just tries to fill itself with intrigue and drops its redeeming qualities for angst. Once they explain how the world works along with the modern state of affairs, there isn't much else to watch since its basically a bunch of power negating. ...

    JUST WHEN I THOUGHT ID SEEN IT ALL JUMPED TO TOP 3 OF MY LIST
    I Like my Anime heroes to be kick but and take names,but also it has to have a story.
    This is heart warming "kind of mystery"story.Well written and directed .Awesome story,not your run of the mill Magic Academy.
    Plenty of lovable supporting characters .The background music sets the tone.
    The Chemistry between the Shiba siblings is Magical.
    3 part 26 episodes that leave you begin for the next ...

    A Show More Pandering than Sword Art Online Season 2
    I don't understand all the praise this show is getting.

    I hear people telling me how "strong" of a character Tatsuya is for being so "stoic", but there's a difference between stoicism and a blank slate. Saying that his lack of emotion is simply a part of the story is an extremely poor excuse for a lack of effort in developing a character.

    There's also the argument I hear that keeps telling ...

    Good anime but the light novel are way better
    I watched this anime when it came out;thought the concept was good and started to read the light novels from which it came from and was blown away how much better and fleshed out the chararchters are. Books are always going to be better than movies and shows but this is a good magic society/scholl anime, The books also go into more detail about the ten master clans and more charachter building. ...

    Why do I love this terrible show (purely biased
    First off I suggest before even watching this this you read the LN (light novel) as I personally think the LN is ALOT better than the anime,although it still suffers from many of problems the anime has.These problems being the heavily pushed incestuous themes,the fact that almost no one notices the world defying acts the main character (Tatsuya) does despite the fact that they are blatantly shown ...

    Good Start but Worse and Worse Development
    A genius who did poorly in standard tests, twisted minds of those who can't use magic, beautiful female uniforms, treating magic as science/technology etc. are all good and make this anime interesting. However, as the story continues, the plots become too predictable, and the author's limited knowledge of how a scientific research is performed becomes obvious (this by itself is okay, but this has ...

    Why the creepy incest?
    This show has some really neat things going for it:
    - Interesting sci-fi/magic environment
    - Main character who isn't constantly having annoying confidence issues

    HOWEVER, this show inexplicably includes a super creepy incesty bro/sis relationship that seems to have no bearing on the story whatsoever. The entire story could have been exactly the same, but without this weird sibling romance ...

    Hand's down my favorite anime and light novel!
    This show is amazing, and doesn't just get you hooked on one particular attribute of a certain character. It really excites the imagination and I can't wait for a season two! Hurry up already! Iv'e been waiting since the show first aired!
