Ever since watching a magic show held by him and his wife Maeve, Makoto Shiranui has always admired Mamoru Hoshisato—a world-class magician, as well as friend of his parents—and came to Tokyo to become his apprentice. Kana, nicknamed Hatena, is the couple's daughter and his childhood friend. As the hustle and bustle activities in Tokyo catches Makoto off guard such as burglaries by a beautiful thief, he depends on Hatena's comforting side. When he came to Hoshisato's now-haunted mansion to reunite with his childhood friend, he is greeted by the family's butler and maid, Jeeves and Emma along with Hatena, only to discover that they are not as compatible anymore.

kinda cute, but overall is just bland trash that wont go anywhere but into the forgotten part of everyone’s watchlist


If Hatena Illusion was a spice, it would be flour


You might think this is about illusionists and thieving, but it’s actually just teens blushing and rehashing anime romcom tropes ad nauseam.


It’s bad if the only thing I find interesting about the anime is the one P.G. Wodehouse reference in the first episode. Dropped!
