  • 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 ...

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

    A very interesting anime
    This anime wasn't like other magic anime that I have seen. This one was really cute, I liked the concept of having a code and constructing it inside of your body if you were a classical mage or through something electronic if you were a modern-day mage. It incorporated all the character's and their past in different episodes, and I felt that I got to learn a little bit more about each character. ...

    Nope. Just... Nope.
    What do you get when you take a nonsensical story, cut it up into bits, and then re-arrange them in the wrong order? Add to that a bordering on hentai level of fan service (which is not in of itself a bad thing, but some of it is of a GRADE SCHOOLER) that the show doesn't even TRY to justify, theme music that clashes with the tone of the series, and this random guy in the background whose name we ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho
    So far of what I've seen of this show is good. I like how it's different from what I'm used to watching. The characters are cool too. I can't wait to see more of this show. I have a feeling it's going to get extremely good. :).
