Magic-- A century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or folklore. The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year. At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, A.K.A Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The "Bloom," who demonstrate the highest grades and are enrolled in the "First Course," and the "Weed," who have a poor academic record and are enrolled in the "Second Course." This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students. The brother is an under achiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a "Weed," while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a "Bloom."

User Reviews

Interesting story & action with creative sci-fi type magic.
8 September 2016 | by ajrcvrSee all my reviews

The Irregular at Magic High School is an interesting display of very creative high tech magic, which is to say, magic which is brought into the science fiction realm and treated as if it had rules and formulae and can be modified by skilled technicians, which they call "magic engineers." A lot of the series time is spent delving into the mechanics of augmenting the magic, but then it is Magic High School, and the rest of the time is spent displaying the magic at work. The first part of the series dwells on integrating the irregular, Tatsuya, who is the major character, into the high school. He is a pretty cool character in every sense of the word: powerful, unflappable, dependable. He and his beautiful younger sister, Miyuki, who is also a powerful magician, have a very close relationship, which doesn't quite ever descend into inappropriateness, but the sister does always show her powerful feelings for her brother. Could it work into something more, possibly, but it never happens in the series, and we're left with two siblings who care deeply for each other. The second half of the series is spent with the good guy magicians fighting off bad guy other people, although we're never quite sure why the bad guy people are that committed to wiping out the magicians - probably just because they're magicians! The leads to lots of action, fighting, & battle scenes that are entertaining and fairly well done. It never gets heavy and one is left with an interesting show that moves along nicely with lots of action and creative sci-fi concepts, which is unusual for a story with magic in it. Definitely worth watching.
