  • 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 ...

  • 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.
