    Disclaimer: I am judging the show only by his first two episodes.
    There is plenty of better shows you can watch instead of this one. What problems do I have to justify thinking this? Well for a start, I am not a fan of the main character. He is the cliche of a shut-in who does not want to contribute to anything, is lazy and make fun of others for wanting to improve themselves. I have watched plenty of other animes who did a better job at making this kind of ...

  • good pick up anime for this season
    Pretty good first 2 episode. they got the comedy, they definitely got the fan service. the magic element seem to be not that complicated to follow. Overall a good pickup and they got the joker type of main character, i personally enjoy him. there are only 12 episode so it might be be rush. but give the anime a watch til mid season and decide for yourself.

  • I really like it so far
    At the moment of my review there are two episodes out.
    The anime up until now feels like a mix between The irregular at magic high school and Trinity seven,so if you enjoyed those two probably you'll like it.
    It seems starting slow and probably will go up each episodes with more combat,revelations and characters.
    I would suggest anyone who likes high school and magic theme to watch this ...

  • Anime Deserves 10 Stars
    Srsly, this anime is great. The main MC makes you dislike him and like him. The fanservice is small but its there. If anything though the anime is more about the magic itself, and its deeper story line. You can tell this is going to be more on the dark gritty side with a potential of heroic elements that make you go "Wtf Hax Plot Armor." The anime's comedy is great as well. 10/10 You cant go ...

  • Second episode overcomes first episode
    The first episode was interesting [enough to get me to watch the second episode] but really pretty average and unexceptional. The second episode was wholly entertaining, which is all it has to be. (The worst reviews have said nothing more than "unoriginal" and "unrealistic" ...well, duh! [Anime!]) If the rest of it is more like the second episode, then I'll give it 5 stars.

    Looks like fun, and ...

    Already getting better
    The first episode was lacking, generic, and overall not great and I had given a bad rating because of it. HOWEVER! The second episode was AWESOME and I feel like the show will continue to get even better. If that's the case my score for it will increase as well.

    Overall, watch the first two episodes before making a decision to drop it after the first.

  • Watch episode 2. Seriously.
    Pointless fanservice? boring phrase based chanting magic? unlikable main character? All that and more in episode one. It's almost like the show does everything it can to drive people off before episode 2. It seems like the same old, but once it hits 9 minutes, the show puts it's game face on. The fanservice is anything but, the chanting phrases are flexible and malleable, and the main character ...

    The combination between GTO and Irregular at magic acedemy =0.
    This series is about a slacker who once loved magic, but began to loathe it because of spoiler reasons anime meta stuff. He has a vast knowledge of magic, and while most magic users treat it as sacred, he teaches the students who believe that in his class that magic is completely different than what everyone thinks it is. The teachers in this series completely outshine the meta made students, and ...

    Watch at LEAST 2nd episode
    While the first episode may be a bit of a miss in regards to fully capturing the viewers attention, do NOT write this anime off until you watch the second episode. It get's much more interesting and gives a lead-in to a real plot by then. Even though only the first two episodes are out currently, I would definitely recommend this anime!

    EDIT: As the entire season is finished, I repeat what I ...

    My First Impression ^^
    I found it interesting how most people saw the first episode, especially when it was the complete opposite to most. People didn't like the MC, said it was boring, etc. Despite being annoyed with the perverted scenes, I didn't have any problems with the show. There are quite a few anime with that anyways, so eh. Some people are quick to judge, because with the second episode, it was even more clear ...
