Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
Aniplex to the rescue! You know, I like most of their productions. I really do. It doesn’t matter what type of story or what manga or game has been green-lit for animation. Aniplex will find a way to turn it into magic. This is a very good example of it!
The artwork is superb. I love the characters, I love the effects and I love the details. I could recognize those uniforms from a mile away and I expect to see a lot of new, unique things in the near future. Definitely a feast for the eyes.
I also like the story. It is very interesting and shows a lot of promise. I always enjoy stories about a minority that’s undervalued because of their skills, only to see them prove everybody wrong. Everybody loves underdogs!
I definitely recommend this. It’s interesting, quite mysterious in its own way and it really does make you think. What is going to happen? Is Tatsuya hiding some secret power? Is Miyuki ever going to try to rape her brother if she doesn’t get her way? Who knows!? But I’m sure as hell going to find out!
Plot Summary: Magic is a product of neither legends nor fairy tales, but instead has become a technology of reality since a time unknown to people. Supernatural power became a technology systematized through magic, while magic became a technical skill. A “Supernatural Power User” became a “Magic Technician.” Magic Technicians (in short, Magicians) are nurtured through Magic High Schools and Universities.
