Well, it's really a cliched novel, but it tells us the know-how of magic. Glen is not that STRONG but he uses his witty brain on battles. He may be kinda PATHETIC from the start, but there's a reason for it. Sistina may be a TSUNDERE but you will acknowledge it if you learned how their relationship starts. Lumia the ALWAYS SMILING GENTLE GIRL may be like that on the surface, but when you learned her past, you will know how strong she is with her demeanor.

Better not wrote a... more>> review if you only read up to volume 1 chapter 1-2. <<less

Hmm. This is all right. It may be yet another "oddball in a magic academy" trope story, but it's well written. Nothing here is exactly new or original, the setting, the unmotivated MC with dark past and non-standard powers that's being looked down on, the tsundere female lead with complicated family background - all this has been done before. But this iteration is detailed, competently executed and engaging enough. The story is upbeat, never lets itself be overwhelmed by occasional dark moment and reasonably paced. Translation and editing are good... more>> (except for the prologue, prologue sucks so much it almost turned me off from this story :P).

4 out of 5. Add a star if you're fan of the "Magic Academy" novels. <<less

I went into this novel hoping for something unique but sadly I was disappointed. It's the usual magic school cliche, the characters are also nothing new the lazy but strong one, the tsundere, and the gentle girl who is always smiling. The villains are also plain, just evil I guess. Also the MC is really pathetic, like seriously, he keeps getting dissed by almost everyone (reminds of natsu from fairy tail, silly all around)

Nothing really unique in this novel

Let's keep this simple:

  1. Go watch the anime.
  2. If you already watched the anime and want to continue, then start at v6 as instructed- you know what you're getting into...
  3. If you really want to start the novel at the beginning... I'm not going to stop you, but seriously- the anime takes out most of the 'cringe', skips a lot of unnecessary expositione and has way better pacing.
Now, with that said...

The Good:

  • The high point is where the series 'appears' to have a really cool grasp of the nuances of magic, and suggests that there may be a robust world Canon simmering behind the barely veiled loli pedo fanservice. Eh. Not so much so-- but there are a few cool scenes nonetheless.
The BAD:

  • So much forced 'fanservice'- The author is pretty bad with making these situations 'subtle', instead making everyone awkward appearance seem like a blatant excuse to daydream- which they are.
  • Forced plotting? 'Yeah- we got this!'- so much 'conveniently this', a bit of 'luckily that', and boatloads of 'everyone else is stupid'.
  • Exposition, imposition: A good deal of text explaining things to excess, and a surprising amount of explaining things in a way too justify the plot direction- more than occasionally in contrast to their own world logic-- but author's do that, right?
  • Comedy means everyone's dumb: I'm not so set on this one as, well- it is pretty common. The problem is this author hasn't decided his story tone, so this jumps from 'comedic' to 'dramatic' are also jumps from 'nonsense, fun world' to 'gritty, tactical world' in a way that's not really compatible.
The Different:

  • I don't think I've seen a story degrade in quality inn a way that's quite so lazy before. I'm going to skim over the rest that I really don't want to read (again- the anime is better), and then see if the new stuff head any more effort put into it, but I don't expect too much.
Altogether, it's worth glancing at, and it starts out pretty good, but it's downhill from there...

NOTE BEFORE READING

1.I read the manga till the latest chapter
2.i only read this up to the 3 volume

This is a different take on the genre of "magic school life" because it's ACTUALLY explain the magic unlike other novel that just straight up said "gathering magic --> Incantations to change the property of magic ---> Fire" this novel actually explain how the magic works and the "unique" magic was also interesting because it opens up many new possibilities in the future

Sure the Characters are cliched but atleast they have personalities... more>> and emotion/felling

overall I will give it 4.5 /5 still not the best but a good read for the weekend <<less
