Average Rating

In the dawn of the 21st century, magic, long thought to be folklore and fairy tales, has become a systematized technology and is taught as a technical skill. In First High School, the institution for magicians, students are segregated into two groups based on their entrance exam scores: "Blooms," those who receive high scores, are assigned to the First Course, while "Weeds" are reserve students assigned to the Second Course. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows the siblings, Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, who are enrolled in First High School. Upon taking the exam, the prodigious Miyuki is placed in the First Course, while Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course. Though his practical test scores and status as a "Weed" show him to be magically inept, he possesses extraordinary technical knowledge, physical combat capabilities, and unique magic techniques—making Tatsuya the irregular at a magical high school.

MC is the most OP character. Who needs plot when you can just be badass?


Plot has no sense of direction and wasn’t even entertainingly bad. Characters are overshadowed by Gary Stu MC. Theme exploration is a joke.


Bring me season 2. I’m still waiting. Really liked it, would recommend.


I enjoyed the strong worldbuilding this show did. OP protagonist removes any sense of danger or surprise, though.


The MC is f**king awesome! A MUST WATCH!


A top anime. While the science may be confusing the action scenes, amazing soundtrack and great characters make this a must watch.


Ok take the best school series and then add class warfare with overpowered super man in hiding and you are not far from this series.



    Anime was a mistake


    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
