Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 03

Ohhh~ Hell yeah! I need more of this. A lot more. Thank god there’s going to be twenty-six Mahouka episodes. That means that I have at least twenty-three more weeks of joy and I deserve every minute of it after what I’ve been through.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.30_[2014.04.20_21.14.07]So they started things off by explaining how Tatsuya defeated his opponents within one or two seconds. Fair enough, I didn’t understand all of it, but I understood enough to know that Tatsuya is a total badass that deserves to rule that school. It’s the first time that I’m actually hoping that one of the character’s a cunning strategist that will manipulate, use and discard everyone around him in order to achieve his goals. I mean, the students that look down on “weeds” because of how they did on their tests deserve to be taught a lesson. Tatsuya fits that role perfectly.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.05_[2014.04.20_21.14.48]Tatsuya won the match and is now officially part of the student council or the discipline committee. Maybe both. Either way, the guy is doing one hell of a job. He managed to piss off one of the course one students before he even began. This Shun character will undoubtedly by the cause of a lot of problems, but I’m pretty sure that it’s nothing that Tatsuya can’t handle.

I’m really looking forward to the next episode. I want to know how Tatsuya is going to solve this. He faced a group of angry course one students after he defeated their club leader. How awesome would it be if he, on his first day to boot, defeated over a dozen course one students? His reputation would skyrocket and tip the balance just a little bit in favour of all course two students.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei episode 02

No hesitation. Not a single second. I knew that I would want to write about this as soon as I finished watching the first episode. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is definitely one of the best shows this season so far. Definitely.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.06_[2014.04.13_23.25.44]I’m kind of puzzled by Tatsuya, still. What is up with that guy? I just can’t figure him out. I have a rough idea what he can do right now and I am slowly staring to understand why he does what he does, but what is going on with that character? There’s just no way for me to predict what he will do next. What is going on in his mind? Does he see all of those characters as enemies? As complications? I just don’t know what his next move will be or how strong he actually is. That character is just one big question mark that keeps on getting bigger. It’s probably why I’m so interested in this show.

[HorribleSubs] Mahouka - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.08_[2014.04.13_23.25.57]Tatsuya became a part of the student council, which doesn’t sound like a big deal at first, but he’s the first “weed” to have become it. I didn’t know if I should’ve laughed or just sit here with a surprised look on my face when he beat that guy in about a second. I truly am a sucker for overpowered main characters, even if they’re rather strange.

Like I said; I have no idea what to expect. It was a good episode and I learned quite a bit about the characters and their school. In my mind it’s about to become this competition between “weeds” and “blooms” to see which is better. I honestly wouldn’t mind that, especially if Tatsuya became the leader of the “weeds”. We’ll just have to wait and see…

Mahou Shoujo Taisen

This particular show is different. I have no problems whatsoever with its length. I wouldn’t want to waste more than four minutes per episode on this either. It’s like throwing away money and time, not to mention twenty-six times.

Mahou Shoujo TaisenI’ll have to admit that the artwork is decent for an anime short. The characters look pretty good and quite unique, the details are bearable and the girly crap is, from what I’ve seem, been kept to a bare minimum.

The story… Yeah. There is none. It’s four minutes per episode, what do you expect?

Mahou Shoujou fans; eat your hearts out. The rest should keep walking and look for something else instead. It’s just not worth it to waste your time on something that doesn’t have a chance to build up a good story.

Plot Summary: “Mahou Shoujo Taisen” is a project created from a variety show for the Otaku “2.5 Chigen TV” (2.5 Dimension TV). The characters are the mahou shoujo that represents each local town in Japan. The characters that won from the second illustration competitions that were held on pixiv will appear in the anime.

Lady Jewelpet

Why!? Why must Japan keep on making crap like this? Just stop with the magical girls. It does nothing more than create pathetic guys that lose sight of the real world. I think there’s only one decent Mahou Shoujo anime in existence.

Lady JewelpetThe artwork is just the worst. It’s like they took one can of girly crap, which is bad enough, and spiced it up with a whole crate of girly crap. No wonder women aren’t the superior sex. You couldn’t possibly be if you actually like this crap.

Is there a story present? Is there!? I honestly have no idea. The overwhelming artwork just made me lose focus. All I saw was little girls, little animals and a sh*tload of bling. It’s the story of thing you’d see in Justin Bieber’s room.

I do not recommend this whatsoever. I refuse to believe that there are a lot of girls and children out there that actually prefer to watch crap like this. I absolutely refuse it. I don’t have a lot of faith in humanity these days, but I have to believe that we’re better than this.

Plot Summary: Momona is a normal middle school girl who is longing to see her older nephew getting married. In a unexpected twist during his wedding day, she got transported to a new place called Jewel Land where she saw a lot of girls being mysteriously brought in. She then met a white rabbit as she introduced herself as Ruby, a Jewelpet who chose Momona to become a Ladyjewel Candidate alongside other girls in hopes to become a Lady Jewel, the highest ranked lady in Jewel Land. Momona herself hesitantly accepts the offer and she and Ruby decides to work together in order to achieve her goal. But standing in their way is both Lillian and her Jewelpet Partner, Rua who also wants the crown title.

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!

Mahouka Koukou no RettouseiThe 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.
