    Modern Magic made average
    Not much going on to say this is anything but "average" anime. Some cute female characters. At least one set of bouncy boobs, a ditzy but well meaning character, the comedic foil, and the Super Cool Sensei. The characters could have come from any series. Too many plots, sub-plots, sub-sub-plots crammed in to do any of them well. Mediocre villains. repetitive magic spell fights, some good quips and ...

    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 ...

    So this is that moe thing I hear so much about, wait why did I watch this
    Well I struggle to write this review because I have no strong feelings one way or the other about Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho. It's the most median I've seen in awhile. It's seems like it contains every vicious stereotype about anime in it, but that's what some people love about anime. On one hand it's a cutesy magical girl anime about friendship and fan service. on the negative It's a cutesy ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
