    Purely loli show for loli lovers.
    The first episode is without a doubt very boring and lacking. As I watch the next episodes, I thought it would get better but no. I am disappointed on how it ended but I still need to point out that the:
    -Animation is great
    -Music is great
    -Background is great
    -Characters are generic and bland
    Lastly story line or plot is 7 out of 10
    Overall 3.5 max rating.

    JUST KEEP WATCHING IT GETS BETTER
    this anime just starts out with boring context. but don't let that fool you, because in just the second episode it gets way better. to anyone who watched the first episode and got turned off of the show, i urge you to continue watching it you will not be disappointed.

    GET PAST THE FIRST EPISODE!
    GREAT BALLS OF FIRE BATMAN! This series took off at the second episode and if you can get past that horrid cliche first episode then you are in the clear. My god like one other review said on the episode, that went from 1 to 11 REAAAAAAAAAAL quick! I am looking forward to the rest of this show, and not just for the ecchi! I feel like this story is gonna get real good, real quick!

  • Just give it a shot.
    TL;DR - Ep1 is pretty bad, Ep2 is actually really good and gives promise.

    So if you're reading reviews to see if you should give this anime a shot, you should. I was looking for something to watch since I haven't watched a good anime in a while, watched the first episodes of some recent animes and they all kinda fell short of my expectations ( which are honestly higher than most ) but when I ...

    Give it a chance, it gets better.
    Don't base your judgment on this show simply on the first episode. I was lucky enough to have found it when it was 2 episodes in and watched one after the other out of sheer laziness. The initial episode introduces the characters, but there is nothing else. No back story, no build up, no showing off why the MC is worthy of being a MC. Honestly, it doesn't even get into it until almost half way ...

    Solid show, one of the better this season
    I enjoy the protagonists back and forth and it's overall just fun to watch. Nothing too serious, it's probably not a stand-out anime that people are always hoping for but it's funny any easy to watch along with what may come to be a good story line.

    Great Series, Continue Watching
    This is a great anime this season. Episode 1 may seems stupid) but after watching the next few episodes and revisiting the first ... I see it in a new light.
    I read the manga as well ..up to whatever that's available, really only gets better.
    As many reviewers have mentioned, this story is generic and I feel so as well after being up to date with the manga. I know, or well predict at the end of ...

    Mmmmmm maybe worth watching?
    Yea I'll admit it, it isn't that fan servicey, but it will most likely have more to come. It does have the main character with a blood soaked past, but it made up for it by showing that he is trying to atone for it now. Still it's worth watching if you don't mind the cliches and are okay with some tried and proven ideas. The animation is pretty good and the magic that is animated is pretty good. ...

    Very much a mixed bag
    I went into this anime expecting it to be absolute garbage, and in some ways it is. It's yet another magic high-school, with the same character archetypes you've seen a million times. The school uniforms make it hard to take ANY of the girls seriously, and the fan service is downright cringe-worthy.

    And yet, it's clear that this show has some heart to it. The world-building is excellent, some ...
