He awoke, and the world was changed. The familiar high school now teaches magic, encouraging students to become the greatest magicians they can be. Beyond the city limits, wandering magical beasts prey on humans.An advanced scientific world changed into one with advanced magic. Yet, what has not changed was the same teacher who looks upon him with disdain, the same students who look upon him with contempt, the same father who struggles at the bottom rung of society, and the same innocent step sister who cannot walk...
Fan Mo is a very loveable character, he does basically everything you want him to do. While this makes both himself and the anime very predicatable, he still ends up being a fun character to root for. As far the the plot goes, its a very straightforward, predictable, lack luster plot line. Theres nothing amazing about it at all, but at the same time it doesn't do anything majorly upsetting as in other anime series. The sounds used for a lot of things in the anime a very poor quality, especially in the case of the monsters, though most of the voices for the characters are of a decent quality. Overall it was a very good anime with its straightforward plot line with no twists at all. You'll find yourself being able to predict everything thats going to happen far into the future without any fun surprises coming your way. I would personally never recommend this for anyone, but all the same it was a fun watch when I was bored with nothing else to do at the time.
Recommended for those who have never read Chinese light/web novels or is bored af and likes the whole underestimated MC kind of story Not Recommended for people who have watched Marvel, DC, Avatar: The last airbender, or any anime with superpowers or for those who are really put off with bad animations. ------------- Frankly the story is generic and cliche. But magic schools + underestimated MC is my guilty pleasure. Also, I was hella bored There are many many problems with this anime. 1. Cutscenes A lot panning in and out of scenery for no reason. A lot of meaningless and LONG flashbacks to events that happened only a few episodes ago. Anime ends in weird places each episode. Doesn't end in a conclusion of an event or cliffhanger. It's like they made everything in one go and just chopped the story up at 20 min intervals. 2. Fight Scenes The fight scenes are not smooth AT ALL. Like sometimes when a character is cornered by a monster all of a sudden everyone stops moving. Like you would think that the monster would finish the character off but no. The monster just stares at the character and SLOWLY gets closer to it. The cornered character doesn't do anything either. He/She also just stares at the moster in fead. Then it becomes a staring contest. And I'm like, And then they finally start moving when the MC or another character saves the one in distress JUST IN TIME. It's just the monsters are conveniently slow when someone is in a tough situation. I'm not sure if this is due to the poor animation of fight scenes and poor portrayal of injuries and hence why a monster would slow down..?, or because it is used as a plot device so the MC can get the glory of the last shot or the kill. I'm hoping it's not the latter. 3. Ineffective Use of Powers If you've watched Fairy Tale, Avatar, One Piece, or any of that, the way they use the powers will make you facepalm. Ice Smear? You are literally one letter away from Ice Spear!!! Why trap monsters with ice and wait for another mage to kill it when you can literally kill it yourself?! All the mages even the elites are useless. They take turns to take down a monster instead of working together. Everyone is literally standing there and not moving except that one person who is attacking the monster. One facepalm is not enough to deal with their level of incompetence. 4. Everyone is Cannon Fodder/ Characterization MC is always right. Everyone else is just ignorant and selfish. MC is justice. MC will always win. Those people who gossip "Ah, Mo Fan will definitely lose. He stands no chance" or "I'm glad I'm not trash like him" are there to emphasize his glory once he proves them wrong. This kind of setting is overdone in LNs. MC only suffers in the premise in the story. But because of some OP magic item or ability that is bestowed upon him, he starts winning all the time. He never suffers a loss. All the "great and powerful" characters are always on the side of the MC. I mean sure, he will get into conflicts but it's always obvious that the MC will win. There's never the uncertainty that the MC will lose. Which is BORING!!!! Everyone is one dimensional. If the MC had a theme song, it would be "All I Do is Win" by DJ Khaled 5. Comedy and Originality of Story Unless you've lived under a rock, then I'm pretty sure you've seen the magic school + underestimated MC cliche before. The thing is that other animes or mangas have their own spin to it. This anime does not have its own spin to it (though I would think people who have not read any Chinese LN would disagree). Comedy wise...I never laughed at any part of the anime. Some people may find that parts where he has his inner monologue funny...but that's about it. There was this one part where someone asked a leader where he found such a talented guy like the MC and the leader responded that he found the MC at an audtion. Then all the characters started laughing. And I'm watching this like... What I liked about the anime: 1. Not everyone is stupid despite being cannon fodder. 2. Not everything is handed to the MC (unlike many LNs). Eg. He is not naturally very fast and growing his powers. There is a legit reason why in the beginning his Fire level was really low. And the reason is not because it is to further his glory. There are very little asspulls. Things can be explained by legit and reasonable reasons. 3. The girls do not throw themselves at the MC 4. The subs by Mizurex33 Aka Mizu on Youtube make the anime a lot more enjoyable and funny Overall, it's a fun watch if this sort of thing is your guilty pleasure. But otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it
Hi, I am fairly new to reviewing stuff let alone anime but this is the kind of show I want to review mainly because of how disappointed I was. This entire anime is a Chinese rip off of Blue Exorcist. I don't mean it has same tones but it's the same EXACT story. It's about a young boy with a secret power who is assumed to be normal or sometimes weak but uses his secret power to defend others in secret or else (Well in this shows case for no reason). But the poor animation and the sad excuse of a soundtrack make this just a wasted potentional. This could have been a cool niche anime but instead is nothing more then a washed down Blue Exorcist...
