Sky Wizards Academy

Forced to retreat to floating cities due to an invasion of magical armored insects, humanity must now depend on Sky Wizards to battle the menace via mid-air battles. Once known as the “Black Master Swordsman,” Kanata Age is now considered a traitor and is assigned to lead an F-class of mismatched mages. Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she's failed 100 consecutive tests. Rico Flamel is a genius sniper, but she's a little self-absorbed, and Lecty Eisenach is a candidate with all the ambition but zero confidence. It's up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.

I hardly ever write a review for a show that I don't watch all the way through, but I simply can't stand to watch anymore of this one. I think it may be one of the worst shows I've ever seen... Story 2/10 Geez, and this is the highest ranked category. There's absolutely nothing original about this story. It's your typical post-apocolyptic adventure complete with bug-things for enemies, special people that can save the world and floating cities that are constantly under attack but never seem to really take any damage. The magic people go to school to be more magical and they can use weapons that are summoned with rings or something...like Captain Planet with less environmentally friendly lessons. Your main character used to be a badass and now he's broken or something, so like most great minds he tries his hand at teaching. And where else to have him start but with the most incapable (maybe) students that, for some reason, the administration hasn't just dropped from their student army. I have no idea if the story ends up getting anywhere, since I only watched the first six episodes, but my guess is no. I don't know why I gave this a 2... Animation 1/10 To call what they use in this show animation is probably a bit of a stretch. When they "fight" the weapons never move. When they "fly" their bodies never move. Every shot hits, reguardless of the direction the weapon is pointed, and for some stupid reason everything blows up when hit. I guess the demon beetles or whatever could have explosive properties... Characters 1/10 So, the only reason I watched this show six weeks in a row is because I really just wanted to know the main character's (Kanata) backstory. I probably should have just looked it up from the beginning instead of submitting my attention to something so painstakingly awful. The first episode introduces this "elite" team of fighters with Kanata being their ace. They make their way through an explosive battle and Kanata is forced to stay behind and fend off a very large group of evil bugs. But don't worry, one shot takes out thousands of them. Anyways, the scene cuts out with Kanata facing incredible odds and lands us a few months? into the future where everyone hates him for being a traitor. They don't explain why he's hated or what happened to him, but now he's a low life. But, his teamates still talk to him...well...except Yuri his sort of ex-girlfriend. The leader of the Sky Wizards assigns him the worst team of students in the hopes that he will be able to help them not suck at life. I don't really get why they wouldn't just expell them...but I guess there wouldn't be a story. But seriously,  I would have just kicked them out. You've got Misora, the pointy toothed good-for-nothing, who has potential on the basic level but refuses to use the correct magic weapon because of her famous and dead mom. There's Lecty, the super boobed social anxiety chick, whose family is well-known for their double bladed  fighting style. Lecty is actually good at fighting but her inability to talk to people keeps her from being able to kick their ass...wha? And of course we have Rico, the self proclaimed goddess walking amongst mere mortals who is also really good at stuff but because she doesn't see any reason to practice with her team and show up for school, her ranking is horrible. Also, nothing in the show gave me the impression that she was any good, except for Kanata reading her profile and saying it was so.  For some reason, I thought maybe the show was just getting a really slow start but episode six put the nail in the coffin that was already in the ground. Our heroes are shoved into a battle that they aren't ready for and in a mix of bad animation and horrible dialogue, Kanata realizes that he will have to step in and help save the day. He does, but his fight is super boring and it doesn't reveal any of the backstory that may have made the show bearable to watch until the end.  OH! I forgot one more super awsome thing about the show. When a Sky Wizard dies, the normies all forget about them. Yes, that's right. For absolutely no reason. Well, they may have explained why...but who cares. Why in the world would that make a difference? Short answer, it doesn't. Just a feeble attempt at the feels. Man, I haven't been this negative about a show in a long time...  Overall 1/10 Another time, another review.

Story 7/10 While i do agree with some of the other people about the typical post apocolyptic story line, it is unique because of the fact that they do not really focus on what caused it but just there daily life and their survival. Its not like they just took the whole book of post apocolyptic survival and just copy and pasted. This was there day to day life and how they bolster thier defense. It was rather calm and enjoyable to watch the lowest rank to team make it to the top. The one thing I do want to comment on was it seemed a litte rushed at times, mostly during fights, but i wont condemn the anime because of it sorry but im not that strict on it. Animation 6/10 Again the really only problem i had with this was the lack of animation in thier fights like they were so calm with a figth and there was a lack of i say for lack of a better word "Flare". It was supposed to be an epic battle of sorts but the fight seemed kinda dull. Even in the times where i wanted to jump out of my seat because of a outcome that was amazing i felt a little bored with the chillness so to speak during the fights. Characters 8/10 The story was about the lowest ranked team not so much kanata. Kanata had a reason for not using so much of his powers. Misoras team was the focus and their development as a team. Kanata was just a teacher who used to be an ace but is not now because of reasons that arent known until the end of the anime. He is not some OP character that is in most typical anime. His job was to just play the role of an experienced veteran that is passing on his knowledge to the underdogs.
