Welcome to the Irregular at a Magical High School discussion thread! Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genres: Fantasy, Action

Themes: School, Magic

Plot: The story takes place in a world in which magic is not a fairy tale, but has existed for nearly one hundred years. In the spring, the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (Magic High School for short) is welcoming its new students, and names the top student with the best grades at the time of their arrival the Bloom (read as “garland” in Japanese), and the student called the Weed is the Bloom's replacement.

Siblings Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are designated as the Weed and Bloom, respectively. Miyuki is given the title of Bloom due to her amazing grades, while Tatsuya is given the title of Weed due to his poor magical practical scores. Tatsuya, the young man who always has a farsighted expression, and Miyuki, the young woman who feels far more for her brother than sibling love. Since the day the two entered the gates of the elite school, the establishment's peaceful days have become chaotic.

@takashichea: @Bigheart711: Glade Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei was added to the srping titles would have been hard to spot this if had not seen the mini primer shorts. Even ANN does not have the alt title Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei listed right.

Pilot was great. Good animation an seems to be a good story. Got a kick out the the omg global cooling sci-fi aspect of the intro. This one could be the show to watch of the season.

@Marshal Victory:

Just finished the episode a few minutes ago. From first impressions, you got a smart, serious protagonist, a sister who is oddly attached to her brother (I don't think it's blood related.), a monk with an uniform fetish, and more. I'll keep watching it.

@takashichea: Ya the sister has a brocon if thats the right word. This sorat reminds me of Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero a bit. The main character is not a wuss an all . If i understood the intro hes actualy a war vet?

@Marshal Victory:

I was hoping they weren't blood related. From the poster, they look like a pair. After reading the synopsis and watching the episode, my fears came true. I don't think they pretending like they did in Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero. That's a good comparison. Both are pretty confident in their abilities. Tatsuya is more respectful towards women than Akatsuki Ousawa. At least, there won't be fan service of Aesthetica level in this show.

Calling it now, this anime is going to be one the best this season. it has the same feel as Index/railgun (Magic/science). Tatsuya is badass but hides it and his little sister Miyuki has an adorable brother complex.

the other two girls Mizuki and Erika are very interesting. I look forward to the next episode.

@LHWKnight: Seriously was thinking the same thing while watching the second episode.

Episode 2 he embarrassed his sister then stands up for her judgment . Or did he want to down the vp? Hes cold an cool an it might be because he can not get emotional? Alot to like in this show. An its gona turn harem. 3 already if ya count the sister!

3rd was great,

Hope they keep this pace. Very good anime for my tastes. Tho the sister with the brocon is bit much but they seem to be teasing that more than full on.

Tatsuya shows how much bad ass he is during his patrols. Reminds me of Samurai Flamenco if Masayoshi was competent. The scenes with Miyuki gets jealous of Tatsuya giving more attention to the upper class female students than her was in bad taste. Was her blasting her brother in pity jealously cute? Not for me personally. From Marshal's comment, I can see them poking fun at the sibling love thing.

Oh god that prank was so wrong lmao that entire scene was great lmao.

Tatsuya shows just how much of a badass he can be, stopping that little punk and then defeating all of his flunkies (no one uses the word flunkies anymore lmao)

anyways looking forward to the net episode.

4 was just great.

I mean great. Really good. Plots developing at a nice pace. Its complex but developed enuff for even slow on the up take like me can catch on.

@takashichea: This series reminds me of Maoyu as in its pace an deep plot. Tho granted Irregular at a Magical High School has a bit more action.But it feels like its layered the same plot pace wise an the expanding plot type. In some ways it reminds me of A Certain Magical Index but less silly with a bit harder edge to the science fiction laws of magic. Hmm "science fiction laws of magic" that has a ring to it!

@Marshal Victory:

Episode 4 was about milking the sibling love and introducing more confusing jargon. Part of being a light novel, you prone to make everything unnecessarily complicated. It was entertaining. I think the megane girl didn't mind seeing Miyuki and Tatsuya together as a couple. Maoyu? I think I see the resemblance but not so much.

The incest is way to much for their friends lmao.

I think that Mizuki seems to be the only one who thinks that they are serious, and I really can't blame her lmao.

It's obvious that Miyuki wants her brother all to herself and it's obvious that Shiba is oblivious to other women.

Ms Ono looks are kind of off compared to the manga, not that she isn't hot, it just just weird.

Marathoned all 4 epps, very solid show. Particularly liked it when the smug VP got his ass handed to him.

5 was good over all but for one spot.

"Force can not change a heart." An yet the terrorist group is using force to change peoples hearts an perspective. So yes the use of force can change some ones heart in a negative manner. Even if it was "one can not force a heart to change" that does not hold up as well. One can force change from indifference to hate fairly easy. But from Indifference to love is a steep climb. The line sounds good but does not play out as so.

Unless the line was meant to be a paradox foreshadow of the actions that followed it. Then thats a whole different kettle of fish.

@hitsusatsu11: VP reminds me of a stuck up middle school girl more than a elite collage age male. He even turns his head an sticks up his nose. I always hope for rain when I see people do that.

Same typical episode - Just with a terrorist spin on it and injustice against class discrimination. Mizuki gets a lot of spotlight in this episode as well as Mayumi. The VP is just a damn tsundere character.

Episode 5 is my least favorite so far. The MC is developing into quite the authoritarian, I'm not liking that.

Also the sister dere has seemingly toned down from previous epps, at least to sub Kirino/Oreimo levels.
