    Review of Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho for the otaku
    Classical magic is so Y2K! So move aside, here comes "comprehensible modern magic" for the new millennium. There're action, comedy, a temporal mystery, and a lovable cast consisting of the ditz (Koyomi), the cool chick (Misa), the loli and the boing (yes Yumiko pulls double duty on this one -- now that's what I called a dedicated MOE actress!)

    To help you learn about modern programming, I've ...

    My review on Yokuwakaru Gendai Mahou
    FIRST EPISODE REVIEW
    Yokuwakaru Gendai Mahou is about a world filled with "codes" or known as magic. The anime starts off with a high pitch petite girl named yumiko who inherits her grandfathers blood, who was this powerful mage. She leaves her home in order to learn more about these "codes" in a magic school. On here way there this evil mage is trying to kill her for her staff that ...

    Watch out for wash basins! XD
    This was an interesting series and here's my review of Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho! It is not your average magical anime series.

    Storyline: Bascially, its about this girl named Koyomi Morishita and she's a mage-in-training but she's also a clutz, plus she can summon wash basins out of nowhere! She also gets help from her friends, and tries to improve her magic. Normally, when people summon ...

    AniMatsuri -- Review
    Not the best, but not the worst ...
    After watching the first episode, I can say that the OP&ED are not fantastic but I like the color of the anime : cheerful. The animation and music are average.
    Characters have a good design, with great seiyuu (fit perfectly to these little girl --> Koyomi and Yumiko) but their character are not original, especially Misa Anehara who are the type of mature ...

    Don't watch this if you don't like fan service. Oh and it's not a good one for kids.
    If your not in to fan service and you like stronger female characters types don't watch this anime. It will turn you stomach.

    I started watching this because was intrigued by the idea of computer and old style magic types. By the first episode I was fairly certain I wasn't going to like it.

    Within the first four minutes of the first episode there was a glimpse of the underwear-less ...

    code monkey is now code mage
    i really enjoyed the over all feel of the show and i understand at lest what they are trying to say if you can program in that world and you have some magic in you you can do magic. i still find it odd that she can only summon basins with time she should be able to turn it into anything she wants.

  • A true spectacle to behold, like a freakshow
    Will the random button ever not fail me? For this show it's like someone saw an anime once and thought, "hey, i could make that" and they did, or tried too at least. Was constantly baffled at the amount of utter nonsense throughout the first episode, there's pretty much nothing to enjoy here. Well actually that's not fair, the music is fairly pleasant, so not all my senses died. Also, I'm pretty ...

  • Couldn't even finish
    There is a major disconnect in the flow of this show. After watching just 3 episodes, I was more confused than when I had started. There is very little explanation nor consistency as to how/when the events are falling. The first episode started to explain things a little bit, but the main character changed and then everything went to Hell in a hand basket. I wish I could rate this lower than a ...

  • Interesting Ideas, Poor Implementation
    First of all, I don't expect every anime to have the art budget of a blockbuster movie but the weird wink in the opening and other awkward spots were really distracting. The premise is interesting, but I found the characters very flat and was particularly annoyed that by the end of the series there wasn't really any character growth and the washbasin joke got really old fast. The plot itself is ...

  • Interesting - an anime with strong support characters
    I find the storyline quite interesting including the characters. However the way they portrayed the main character, Koyomi was so shallow that the supporting characters were even more captivating than her. I particularly liked how the writer subtly implied that Soshiro was interested in Koyomi. I liked the pacing and I did not really regret watching the whole show. I might even consider watching ...
