Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 18

Oh… Gawd… The… Nerdgasms… Won’t… Stop… Hell yeah! This was well worth the wait! Even the ratings have shot up a bit again! It’s quite sad how people continue to change their mind based on a single episode. Just factor in the start, the story in general and the ending. That’s when you give a final rating.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.13_[2014.08.03_23.23.51]So several government goons got together to discuss Tatsuya’s current situation. We all already know that Tatsuya is very valuable to them. He can do things that most people can’t and he is good at it, too. It comes as no surprise that they do not want to see him go, which is probably why they agreed to let him do what he did during this episode. I do not believe that crap about their interests coinciding. I’m sure it was because they didn’t want to tie Tatsuya down too much. He already does a lot for them and the rest of their world. Anymore and he would probably snap.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 18 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.32_[2014.08.03_23.24.11]Some people were so shocked when they saw how Tatsuya kept taking lives like he did. Why? Those guys were going to kill innocent, teenage lives because of some deal that they had going on. Why is it so wrong for Tatsuya to repay them in kind? They even went as far as to target his little sister, the one person you don’t want to mess with. It’s no wonder that Tatsuya got pissed off and annihilated all of them. In fact, I support it and I hope that he finds and kills their leader soon. You do not want guys like that to live on and continue their messed up work. Yeah, Tatsuya has done a good job this week. Let’s hope that he keeps this up.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 17

Another marvelous episode. I think it’s a disgrace how the ratings have dropped. It had an eight average when the show first started and still rising as time went on, but these past few weeks have been a disaster for the ratings. Why? I don’t understand. I really don’t.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.45_[2014.07.27_23.06.07]So the organization behind all the sabotages decided to turn up the heat in order to sabotage First High from winning any more matches. Their methods and priorities have been completely altered by the fact that Tatsuya defeated Third High. They no longer care about student safety. They just want to ensure that they come out on top at any cost. I noticed one of them saying that their lives depended on it, which means that they are not the masterminds. There is someone out there so powerful and influential that those sick pr*cks no longer mind killing students because they themselves are scared.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2014.07.27_23.06.21]Anyway, Tatsuya didn’t seem bothered. He stayed one step ahead of those fools by giving Miyuki the ability to use Flying Magic, which is one of Tatsuya’s newest sequences that has only been released last month. Never mind that Azusa already discovered that Tatsuya is Taurus Silver, seeing as it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the students discover it.

Also, wasn’t it brilliant how Tatsuya prevented that guy from tampering with Miyuki’s CAD? He was mad as hell and took him down within seconds. Fools. You cannot fool Tatsuya. His greatness overwhelms all else. It’s only a matter of time before Tatsuya strikes back. The only difference is that Tatsuya, unlike those morons, never fails to accomplish his missions.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 16

Amazing episode. I would expect nothing less from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. Now some cocky high school boys, tomorrow some cocky world leaders. Tatsuya definitely has it in him. What a great character.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.06_[2014.07.20_23.02.41]I kept thinking about Tatsuya’s family after he defeated that cocky brat. His family still annoys me more than any of the characters. Do they know about his secret life? Do they know that he is a rare breed of talent and one of the very few people on the planet capable of doing what he does? They should kiss his feet and beg him to market some of his inventions.

Yep, I still cannot get over it. I remember how his father stood there as some no-name butler was insulting him as though he was a piece of trash from the streets. He ignores Tatsuya’s existence completely when he’s not being rude to him. I would pay the animators to create a scene where Tatsuya was giving that guy hell. I really would.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.48_[2014.07.20_23.03.20]Anyway, Tatsuya and his two friends won the match against Third High. Well done. Tatsuya showed a couple of near-impossible moves and probably blew his cover in doing so. It’s obvious to anyone that he’s battle tested and ridiculously talented, but when you see the guy do something that you thought was impossible… Well… It kind of raises a red flag. No doubt that that old man is interested in Tatsuya, but after he witnessed Tatsuya instant-heal himself… Boy, it’s going to get rough. I feel it. That old man isn’t fooled so easily and he had his eyes on Tatsuya from the very beginning. I can’t wait to see what happens.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 15

Dammit all! The suspense nearly killed me! The next episode should be the one where Tatsuya takes on those two prodigies. Not that this episode wasn’t good. It was great, especially since some of my suspicions have been confirmed.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.34_[2014.07.13_23.08.14]Tatsuya, the fairy master and the big ogre from course 2 have been fighting schools and completely dominating them. Tatsuya is great. By the way, have I mentioned that Tatsuya is great? Well, just so you know, Tatsuya is great. I got quite annoyed when that red-eyed freak told his friend about how Tatsuya poses no major threat because he only has one mildly dangerous weapon in his arsenal. If they can get him to attack head-on, despite him obviously being battle-tested, they think they will win easily. Yeah right… As if Tetsuya has nothing else up his sleeve. He hasn’t even been using his own custom CAD’s yet…

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.55_[2014.07.13_23.08.35]It pleasantly surprised me when Tatsuya asked his, ahem, “teacher” to find a certain group of guys. It seems he really does have an idea of whom has been sabotaging his fellow students. I’m sure we’ll learn more about that in the next few episodes. The thought of Tatsuya kicking their asses is already flying through my mind.

The next episode should be it. Tatsuya and his friends have defeated yet another school and Third High should be next. And you know, I really hope that Tatsuya does attack head-on. I know he can win because he hasn’t shown his full potential yet, but I just want to see him prove that cocky brat wrong. Nothing would make me happier at this point

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 14

The time for Tatsuya to shine has finally come! I feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve. Next week’s episode will truly be a grand gift. I am going to eat healthy all week long so that I won’t drop dead before seeing that episode.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.13_[2014.07.06_23.17.35]We know that someone is trying to sabotage First High School. Tatsuya knows this better than anyone. What would a group of old geezers gain from sabotaging some school? Money? More power? Fame? Perhaps they do it just for fun? Either way, Tatsuya is on to them and is working hard around the clock so that his fellow students don’t get hurt again. He probably already has an idea of who’s behind it. It’s unlikely that students from other schools planned all of this. He knows this and probably already has a suspect or two in mind.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.21_[2014.07.06_23.18.12]I really liked that part where Tatsuya’s engineering skills where finally being praised once and for all. Two students from Third High, Masaki a.k.a. the Crimson Prince and Shinkurou a.k.a. Cardinal George, were waiting anxiously to meet him face to face. They, too, have recognized him as a dangerous opponent. Nice! And Kudos to Azusa for finding out that Tatsuya is also Taurus Silver.

Anyway, it’s finally Tatsuya’s time to shine. He and two other course two students are about to fight against those Third High students. Tatsuya has to defeat those guys without falling prey to their attacks and/or sabotage from a third party. I can’t wait to see how Tatsuya will completely wipe out his opponents.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 13

I don’t know where to begin with this episode. Yes, it was good and overall very amusing, but I just don’t know what to think of it. Was this a good thing? Is something about to go down? You kind of already know that something bad is going to happen right after something good happens.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.42_[2014.06.29_22.51.00]The matches continue and First High is doing great. They are gaining points again and they are slowly building up their momentum. It is no secret that Tatsuya’s skills have helped them quite a lot in order to get to this point. He continues to modify CAD’s, think up interesting strategies and councils those that need it. The guy truly is an all-round powerhouse. There has been no one good enough to stand a chance against him and now he’s defeating everyone in his path through his fellow students. An episode where he loses to someone seems almost impossible right now.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.07_[2014.06.29_22.51.41]The relationship between Tatsuya and Miyuki seems a bit tense right now. Maybe that’s just me overthinking things as usual, but I feel as though Tatsuya is less tolerable of Miyuki and her shenanigans. Nevertheless, the guy made time to ensure that his little sister completely dominated her opponent with the use of a highly advanced spell.

Still, one simply cannot help but notice that Tatsuya’s mind is elsewhere. He looks tense and serious. It’s like he’s preparing for war or something. Maybe his commander gave him a job to do, maybe he thinks something is about to happen again or maybe he’s just being cautious of what could or couldn’t happen. Either way, I’m pretty sure it is going to happen soon.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 12

Yet another episode passed and still no Tatsuya-related action… Damn it all! I was kind of hoping for a match similar to the one in episode two where Tetsuya completely humiliated one of the undefeated course one students within a second.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.31_[2014.06.22_22.59.38]Do not get me wrong, guys. I liked this episode. It’s always amusing when something bad happens. This time it was one of the members of the student council that ended up getting hurt because of sabotage. Tetsuya thinks that someone was hiding in the water during the event. There’s also the possibility that someone used fairy-type magic and planted a delayed trap that only activates when certain conditions have been met, which is why Tatsuya asked for the help of a Fairy-type magic user and someone whose eyes can basically see everything.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.08_[2014.06.22_22.59.54]This kind of puts Tatsuya in a tight spot. He is now aware that there’s somebody going around sabotaging people from his school. The CAD’s that he programs could very well get sabotage by that person when he isn’t looking. I don’t think that’ll happen since Tatsuya is quite clever and observant, but it’s still a possibility.

I hope that Tetsuya stands in the spotlight soon. The girls are as good as done with their matches. It’s now time to watch the guys in action. I know that Tetsuya would haul so much ass at pretty much any of the events. I just want to see him fight against that red-head that thinks he’s almighty. That would be an episode to remember!

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 11

The world nearly lost me, GameDemon, the world’s worst reviewer, today. You see, I nearly gave myself a heart attack when I saw that this was the eleventh episode. I had temporarily forgotten that Mahouka has twenty-five episodes instead of the usual twelve or thirteen. How stupid is that!?

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.15_[2014.06.16_00.00.28]I kind of found it rather strange that Tatsuya had to explain himself to that fairy prince (pun intended). He saved you from getting shot by rending those three criminals unable to fire those guys, and all you do to thank him for his efforts is shower him with questions? Sweet mother of god… Get on your knees and kiss his shoes for probably saving your life!

I also found it strange that Tatsuya was invited to sit with a couple of government goons. What are they up to? I know that Tatsuya isn’t as weak and stupid as to let himself get manipulated by other characters. Hell no. That guy’s mind is like clockwork. Never any unnecessary actions and never any mistakes… Love it!

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.46_[2014.06.16_00.00.43]I must admit that I didn’t really care of the tournament though. I watched as characters were fighting one another during these strange games. Instead of enjoying that and wanting to see more of it, I just kept wondering when Tatsuya gets his turn. My mind if completely focussed on seeing a Weed (or course two student) defeat every single Bloom (or course one student). Wouldn’t that be epic?

I think that either two things would happen. The highly unlikely theory would be the school (and government) adjusting their system by no longer labelling people with Bloom or Weed titles. The more likely theory would be that the school would promote him to a full-fledged Bloom as not to embarrass the system. I really hope I get to see that one of these days…
