The Arnold Academy of Magic is a school for the elite...and Ray White is just your ordinary guy. In fact, he doesn't seem particularly skilled with magic at all, and is a bit of a klutz. Which is why he has nothing to do with the rumor that one of the great magicians, the Iceblade Sorcerer, is a member of the incoming class...right?

Not really sure where to start with this series as it has its good and bad points.  I guess I will go with the nuts and bolts.  Animation wise its nothing special.  The music was good and the sound levels were stable. The overall story was nothing special either.  Your run of the mill save the maiden and the school thing.  Now, a big difference in this story is in its harem angle.  While most harem shows, everyone falls for the MC for no reason, at least Ray has some legit charm, and knows how to talk to the ladies, while showing them some mad respect.  Felt that was a plus.  Another thing is the series has a bunch of action, though its just there.  The OP MC is never in real trouble of losing a fight, and the main save the maiden point is accomplished without fight, just Ray's abilities. The character aspect varies.  The MC Ray is very well done.  He has a solid backstop, great traits, and he even continues to grow throughout the series.  The 4 main girls however, have a super basic backstories (being a noble), and though they all find growth in different ways, only Amelia Rose is all that interesting.  The other 3 are just kinda there as love interests, and are not very entertaining.   The tertiary characters all fall into the general tropes of this genre.  You have the master, who is super strong and strict, but truly loves the MC like their own kid.  The school principal who is mad powerful, but puts all the problems on the MC and does little to nothing.  And lastly the overly perverted woman that is a semi-mentor to the MC.  So yeah pluses and minuses here too. As a whole series I was not super impressed, but episode by episode it did keep me thoroughly entertained.
