  • Overpowered Characters, and Retarded Terrorists
    Hey boss, don't you think it's a bad idea to attack a school with combat ready mages and a one man army for a main character?

    Be quiet newbie.

    Just your average magic anime with an overpowered main character, idiotic terrorists who don't research their targets, Engrish, severed body parts, and all of your emotionless Tatsuya needs

  • Predictable and frustrating
    Overall the anime wasn't horrible but what frustrated me throughout the whole thing was that the main character can literally do anything with such ease and he has this sort of modesty that attracts everyone to him even though he clearly is better than everyone else. I know thats not a quality that sounds like it would be frustrating but for me it just got under my skin considering his only ...

  • The perfect balance of kick-assery, seriousness, and humor
    I was hooked on the first episode (after powering through some awkward brother/sister relationship questions), and I couldn't stop watching until I blew through the rest of the episodes. This has the perfect balance of kick-assery, seriousness, and humor. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Beautiful but boring
    the action and character designs are beautiful but overall the show is boring and they throw so much information at you so fast its hard to keep up. The main character is so overpowered that there is no threat and the show just goes no where. It's dull.

  • Sister and brother "love" in a new light
    I loved the characters and the story plot, the anime left us hanging so I hope for a new season. I did kind of get grossed out and disappointed by the whole brother sister love and sister being overly obsessed with the brother and not in a healthy way. This anime is amazing on its own as it stands without that extra "creepy" part, it added nothing to the story. If that doesn't bother you, you will ...

  • It's hard to care for a flawless hero
    The Irregular at Magic High School has some interesting concepts around the mix of magic and technology. However, the main character is perfect; with no tangible weaknesses, he simply conquers one obstacle after another without a flinch. That alone makes everything predictable and uninteresting. There's definitely a lot of potential in the setting presented by this anime, but having a flawless ...

    It's okay but it can use some work
    THIS SHOULD NOT BE WATCHED BY EVERYONE!!! There are three very crucial aspects to this show that form a fissure among the viewers. If you are able to tolerate or enjoy these aspects, watch this show. If you find these elements unbearable then you should definitely walk away because they are ubiquitous throughout the entirety of the 26 episodes.
    I: An over-powered protagonist. When I say ...

    Simplistic but enjoyable
    Both cliche and original at the same time. I find it a fun mix of common tropes. Nothing ecchi, but definitely harem. Overpowered but constrained protagonist. A nice bit of humor and nothing too dark. I wish the plot went deeper than it did. I rarely re-watch anything, but I've seen this one a few times over the years.
