Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei. So many new things, so much to touch upon and discuss. Actually, no. The only thing Yuutousei has is the new animation. The anime is mainly the retelling of the original series that shows you the story, following other characters’ perspective. The story is very difficult to follow, unless you know what happened in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. Indeed, it is a good thing that Rettousei tried to give some of the minor characters time to shine, but the problem is, it does it rather bad: many important scenes are not explained, or even completely neglected. And this is not how an alternative story is supposed to work. A viewer should have new characters to know, some story details to discover, Yuutousei, however, is just too messy. Tatsuya is barely to see, male characters just disappear completely. It feels as if Yuutousei tried to fit in as many female characters as possible, to bait male audience into watching. And it just is way too confusing and starts getting even more confusing, when you realize they altered Rettousei a bit. Overall. With every new Mahouka, I hate it even more and more. It used to be ‘it is so bad, it is good’ type of an anime. Now it is starting to look like a work of a man, who is so lazy to come up with something new that he continues to milk the hell out of his creation. Why make something new, ‘when they will consume this garbo anyways. I will add some more waifu and Miyuki fan service and they will accept it.’ I, however, will not. But-but-but, if you are a hardcore Mahouka fan, this might be a good watch. If you, however, never liked the series, do not expect that Yuutousei will somehow change your opinion on the series. But the choice is yours to make.
