Average Rating

In a world plagued by magical dangers and threats, there exist special warriors—known as Inquisitors—who are tasked with non-violently preventing these threats and nefarious actions. The Anti-Magic Academy is a specialized school built to educate and train these Inquisitors, which splits its students into small squads in order to train them to work together. Among these talented squads is the 35th Test Platoon, also known as the "Small Fry Platoon" due to its low ranking and incompetent members. However, everything changes when Ouka Ootori, a powerful yet rebellious former Inquisitor, is forced into joining due to her tendency to break rules and committing a serious violation: the killing of a witch. Tempers flare upon her arrival, as she clashes with their clumsy captain Takeru Kusanagi and argues with the rest of the squad over her views on witches. This eclectic group has a long way to go if they wish to succeed and climb the ranks at the Anti-Magic Academy: they must first set aside their differences and come to work together as a team.

Plot was nice and the characters were well made. Although the ending was a bit meh.


Unexpectedly good. Picked it up thinking it would be just another school battle show but it actually proved really interesting.


The squad was the main point of this, quite nice to see them all. Story was abit eh, but apart from that not bad at all.


Very cliche anime, Guy falls on girl and his hand grabs her boob, Harem, Tentacle scenes, MC is strong and saves the day


a fun twist on a over used theme and it actually worked. the cast is fun and the bad guy easy to hate.

It didn’t get as many feelings as it should. BUT it had a very good soundtrack and the characters were well made, with good depth.
