Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!

I had watched both of these anime around the same time, but I couldn’t help feeling these anime would make extremely interesting “fantasy centered around magic school” RPGs. If you liked one of these for the fact(s) you love summon spirits, magic, fantasy, and schools whose lessons taught are on magic, and you possibly thought one of these would make for a great RPG, chances are you will certainly enjoy the other.

Additionally, if you know--or are a huge fan of--the Atelier and Mana Khemia JRPG series, my alchemy recipe leads to this synthesis: you WILL enjoy one AND the other.

Zipang

Zipang

In present day Japan, during what should have been a routine training exercise, Captain Umeza and the battleship Mirai are suddenly hit by a storm, sending them back in time to the middle of World War 2. Armed with state-of-the-art technology, the Mirai could alter the course of history; but for its crew, the situation presents a moral dilemma: do they have the right to meddle with history, even to stop the most dreadful tragedies of the war, when even the smallest acts could have unforeseen consequences?

To some people this may seem quite a fair bit of a stretch although some certain aspects in Zero no Tsukaima, like the rocket launcher and the Zero-Type Fighter, really got me into the mood for watching a WWII anime, so I recommend Zipang since it has rockets and WWII fighters.

Kannagi

Kannagi

Mikuriya Jin makes a woodcarving from the remains of a guardian tree, but he gets much more than he bargained for when girl materializes from the statue! Her name is Nagi, the troublesome and at times violent deity of the land; and with nowhere to go, she announces that she will stay with Jin. Now, with Jin’s help and a magical girl wand purchased at the local convenience store, Nagi aims to exorcise the impurities that are infecting the land. Though when the sacred tree is finally uprooted, it is only a matter of time before her powers will diminish; thus, a new object of worship is required, and what better object than Nagi herself! However, obtaining your goal of becoming a popular idol is not so straightforward, especially when you have to compete with your sister, who is unwilling to share her fan base and plans to sabotage you at every step!

Both have female leads with supernatural powers and have the male leads wrapped around their little fingers.
