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.
