  • Honestly, It's Been A While
    I remember this show terribly. The main character is supposedly at a disadvantage, and yet he manages to never convince me that he is. I couldn't connect to any of the characters. I don't remember the plot. I don't remember any redeeming qualities. All of this despite my higher tolerance for lesser-quality shows at that time. I could re-watch to give a proper review, but I've lost my ...

  • Fascinating and funny
    I enjoyed most of the show. Some of it seemed vulgar, however the fight scenes were fun to watch. I loved the art. Beautiful. The creator must have wanted people who watched this feel a little nauseous when the siblings teased each other like lovers, or at least that's the feeling I got from watching. However, I truly pitied the main character and an emotion toward a character in a story must mean ...

  • At least the magic aspect was cool...


    My issue is that when I watch any series, no matter how good or bad it is, I just have to finish it out, unfortunately that was the case with this show as well.

    I will give credit where credit is due. The ...

  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei - Review 10/3/14
    "Onii-sama", these words are the very heights of the human spirit, they are the essence of a male soul. It is the light that will guide a man during his darkest hour. Make your imouto recite these holy words exactly 167 times over the span of 10 hours and you will be granted what your heart truly desires, my child.

    Mahouka is like solidifying the shit your dog left on your mattress with liquid ...

  • Great Show Heres Hope For Another Season
    I loved the show. I've heard some complain about the OP-ness but I like it. I would definitely watch another season if they make it. The character are unique and I'd personally like to see more on them. There is plenty to expand on. *I haven't read the manga yet though* I just seem like there is so much they left covered up. Again Would love more of Magic High.

  • Amazing Adaption of the Light Novel
    Mahouka is my favorite Japanese light novel, and the anime is one of the best adaptations of a LN that I have seen.
    Tatsuya is considered bad by the normal standards used to judge people. Miyuki is a hardcore Brocon.
    ...

  • Great Series, but not the best anime adaption
    It truly is a great series. The problem was how the studio chose to adapt the light novel. It was missing a certain something that either made people love or hate this anime or consider it amazing or slow. I would recommend primarily the light novel but the anime is not a bad watch and is worth your time, especially with an upcoming movie coming up.

  • It's not bad but it's not great either.
    First thing you're going to notice is the close relationship between the 2 main characters, and it's really uncomfortable and annoying. If the creators were going to do something like that, they really should have thought to keep those 2 unrelated, just saying.

    This is a high school anime with a background connected to secret operatives that only the 2 MCs are involved in. It's not a regular ...

  • Good, but felt was missing something
    I was a really well done anime, but I felt like there was something missing. It was really heavy on the fact that he was living a double life but i felt we never really got to know as to why. How did he become so without emotion except for his sister, I understand that it had something to do with his power, but it never really went into depth.
    I liked how they made him a really strong class 2 ...

    Absolutely Thrilling
    Never before have I been so invested in an anime that I scoured the internet looking for the light novels it was based off. I just had to know how this story goes. There was some slow lead up, followed by the huge battle.
    Now having read the books the anime makes more sense. The books better describe the magical system and what is so remarkable about Tatsuya.
    Both of these things are a bit ...
