Trivia

The title, "Maho Tsukai Tai!" is a Japanese pun. It can either be read as "Magic Users Club", or "I Want To Use Magic!". The "tai" as the end is written in Roman letters, thus leaving the title open to more than a single reading. Most of the main characters have alliterated names, using Japanese syllables Example: TAkakura TAkeo, MIyama MIzuha, NAkatomi NAnaka. See more »

One of the best.
26 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

One of the best anime series I have ever seen. If only every anime was of this caliber.

Mahou Tsukai Tai! follows the adventures of a Tokyo highschool Magic club contending with a mysterious alien invasion on planet Earth.

It's largely a comedy and you'll be chuckling and laughing out loud throughout. It also has some wonderfully poignant moments, a wonderful soundtrack and all around beautiful animation. I can't comment on the American dub because I've only seen the Japanese sub, and the voice work is fantastic.

In today's era of Pokemon/YuGiOh overload, Mahou Tsukai Tai is a breath of fresh air, even if it does date back to the mid-90s. This is so unlike the cookie-cutter crap that is being endlessly released these days and I would highly recommend it to any anime fan, newbie or hardcore alike.
