    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The pang, the curse, with which they died,
    The show is a dully design, barely animated, sad mess. It tries to have a storyline while also catering to those with paedophilic tendencies with crass nudity and does neither well. The basic premise that magic is actually logic code is not a new but a decent idea that is completely wasted as there is never a good or even interesting explanation of the eco-system. Meanwhile Japan seems the same as ...

  • One of those shows..
    This show is one of those 'shows' that when people think of anime they think of revealed cartoon characters. I don't like this show, to put it in a blunt way. I believe the characters are a knock off of others. Unoriginal, and also boring, and just plain weird as hell.

  • Good, but unintresting.
    The idea behind this show is quit good, but the execution of it left me uninspired. The first episode was interesting, but the second episode left be board, and by the third episode I found my mind wondering. This is Moe anime, but trying to have a bigger story then being Moe, yet too afraid of not being Moe that it never gets to far away from Moe to be interesting, but never giving enough Moe to ...

    Probably the most annoying series ever
    I didnt like the main character koyomi she is utterly useless yeah the water basin thing was funny at first but got old fast so did her tripping every time she ran anywhere and crying ugh i wish she was useful to the other characters at least idk im just not happy with it overall. I hated how the story didnt match the first episode until after a few in where it catches you up and just too many ...

  • excellent series overall
    Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho is one of those series that makes you stop and go, "Hmm I never thought about that before..." At first, it seems like your traditional magical-girl fare: a young female finds a piece of paper advertising a magic school that she's never heard of before, but somehow feels drawn to because the book that she finds it in, is supposedly written in a magical language that only ...

    Good but too short =)
    My review title says it all. Twelve episodes weren't enough for this anime. The premise is interesting. I especially like the idea of new school magic using computers and code as opposed to uttering spells. The voice acting is solid as is the animation. There just needed to be more for me to feel satisfied. They just seemed to scratch the surface of the characters. I don't know if this is a ...

    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.

    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 ...
