Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 04
Ouch, the pace dropped again. I expected something a little more from this episode. I guess I can’t see Tatsuya dominate other characters every single week. No… That would be far too awesome much. Building up the story is fine too.
I was actually surprised when Tatsuya gave his testimony of what happened during the end of last week’s episode. He said that only one guy used magic during that time, even though there were others that were about to attack with magic in order to help out their captain in his time of need. He decided to keep quiet about that for some reason.
The spotlight goes to the mysterious character that tried to attack Tatsuya when his back was turned. They were obviously trying to test him out for some reason. No sh*t that Tatsuya dodged in time and tried to catch him, but why is it that Tatsuya can’t use a skill that, just like that character, allows him to move faster?
Basically, it seems that there’s some unknown organisation that fights for the magic-less. They are filled with people that are fed up with magic and people with magic and their tendency to look down on people that either don’t have magic or just don’t know how to use it properly. They want to break that wall that separates magical elites and non-magical plebs.
Let’s accept it: that mysterious organisation does not look bad at all. We’ve seen how those elites treat those in course two. They are looked down on, treated like garbage and are often ignored by those in power. They will only get a say if a magically talentless person proves to be useful somehow. How can you not support an organisation that wants to destroy a world like that?
