Magic—A century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or folklore.
The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year.
At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, A.K.A Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The "Bloom," who demonstrate the highest grades and are enrolled in the "First Course," and the "Weed," who have a poor academic record and are enrolled in the "Second Course."
This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students.
The brother is an under achiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a "Weed," while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a "Bloom."
The brother, with a somewhat philosophical expression, and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him...
Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change...
Status: Completed (26 Episodes)
The story has great direction which is why the execution is great as well. You could say it's like anime Harry Potter with guns and (most importantly) magic. But this "Magic" is not your typical magic. I won't go into detail but it's anime, you know what's coming. It starts like a typical magic school anime but as the anime goes you'll end up saying "well...that escalated quickly" (Sorry for the meme reference) *ahem*. Also you'll probably want to be able to do what they can.
Both the brother and sister are intriguing but mostly the brother. They seem like your typical Magical high schoolers, but they have trouble coming for them at every corner. The reason? Well, i'll just say that the brother has a little secret that no one knows. You'll discover it in the process piece by piece. This is another factor that makes this anime another one of those "Must-Watch Underdogs", at least IMO.
As I said above, it's magic!~ but the execution is very different from what you see in other animes. The story is interesting with surprise factors every episodes and it is longer than most anime these days (which is a big plus for me). Also the humor. It can be serious, sometimes emotional and when it wants to be funny, it's hilarious. It's one of the better animes I've watch lately.
LiSA has done it again. First, SAO, then Fate/Zero and now this. I don't how she does it but every time she appears, I go Cra-Crazy. It's no wonder she is one of the most recognizable voices in the anime world. She brings her strong voice once again to make an awesome anime that much better.
Those who love action, mystery and especially "Magic" will love this one!
