    I really enjoyed this
    10/10 would recommend. I watched this over the course of 2-3 days and really binged out on it. It takes a few episodes to really get into it but after that I was hooked and couldn't stop watching it. This show was well done and I intend on reading the light novels now

    Starts out really cool, then gets boring
    For the first half of this anime, I really enjoyed it. I looked forward to watching it every week.

    About half way through the Nine Schools Competition, I started to get bored. It was interesting, however I felt it drag. However there were still a lot of interesting things going on. However once it got to the Yokohama Disturbance, which is episode 19 I finally gave up. It felt like a rehash of ...

    the breakdown of what good anime is
    Initially i was also hesitant as im sure most viewers were. however, the plots of magic wielding teenagers that have way too much responsibility and self entitlement placed into militant, hierarchical academies coupled with mysteriously over-powered protagonists warrant some attention. The setup was great, explanation of magic casting augmented with future technology was implemented well and ...

    Great Magic Based Anime - A call for Season 2
    The modern day adaption to magic warfare in this series is cutting edge compared to most magical combat anime. On top of the advanced use of magic that this anime relies on there is a solid story line and an intelligent lead character. This rarely seen coexistence has made Tatsuya one of my favourite lead characters.

    All that's left to say is that I can only hope that a season 2 release ...

    Promising Setup, Disappointing Execution
    I checked this series out initially because it has such a high proportion of high ratings, and at episode 21 I have to admit I'm pretty shocked at how far off the actual series seems from that expectation. Most of what I have to say has already been said, but it bears repeating at least to add another negative review to balance these out.

    As even the harshest reviews note, it's a cool and novel ...

    Very Addicting Anime
    I picked up this anime on the fly on Netflix and became hooked instantly. The way they combine magic with the futuristic modern world is perfect. Although the anime scratches the surface of the interesting plot line from the light novel series, the magical abilities on screen are well executed and breathtaking. I hope there's a second season.

    A pleasant surprise.
    Found out about this show and decided to give it a shot. The first couple of episodes were rather slow to me, but it does have upside later on. Once I finished it, it left me wanting more, here's to (hopefully) more episodes to come. I'll give it 4/5

    Keeps Me Wanting More
    I think I went till episode 7 before I could get myself to stop. I will admit, I do have a preference to magic based shows, however this one isn't just magic. The integration with futuristic technology and magic is done so well. Would recommend to anyone.
    If not for work, would have binged the whole thing in one go. Excelent, absolutely top anime. Characters music animation. AHH. Just everything ...

    This show is really great
    This is the kind of anime I find re-watchable I've already seen the first 12? Episodes twice, I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for a new episode to come out, It has everything I'd look for in an anime magic, school setting, intrigue In the story, a protagonist who Is for the most part is "cool, calm and collected" and a little mysterious as well.

    Just great, a must watch!
    This is by far one of the best animes i have seen in a long time. This anime has to all, great action, great story, good comedy. The animations were great and so were the art styles. The story arcs don't take 30 episodes to finish like some more poplar animes i will not mention :D. I highly recommend this anime to everyone who likes their animes filled with magic, action, and magical theories.
