The Honor at Magic Academy 09 + 10 — Lord Have Mercy

This anime sucks so bad. I can’t even say anything funny about it.

An entire episode is literally devoted to watching ice melt as the characters all scream magical gibberish. What’s more, this “climax” was ALREADY ANIMATED in the first series. We are being bored out of our minds for the second time!

Mahouka is a universe with magic, and they managed to invent multiple sports for the magical olympics which I can all say without exaggeration are more boring than baseball. They had magic. And they invented sports lamer than baseball.

The rest of the episode consists of girls begging Tatsuya to let them suck his dick as he insists he isn’t a sister fucker.

Please let this end so we can get back to the thing that makes Mahouka great: racism and simping for a return to serfdom.

The Honor at Magic Academy 08 — Please Let It End

This arc sucked the first time we watched it in the actual show. And it sucks even more having to watch it a second time in the spinoff. Why did they do this to us? Does there exist a guy somewhere who really loves the Mahouka Magical Olympics Arc? Just like in the original series, the magical olympics are fucking lame. They’re so lame they’re even lamer than the actual Olympics. All while having magic. Please just let it end.

At least someone knows it’s all bullshit. Continue reading The Honor at Magic Academy 08 — Please Let It End

The Honor at Magic Academy 06 — This Anime Sucks

It feels like just yesterday, but it was actually seven years ago when I first complained about this arc of Mahouka! It was unbelievably boring. The olympics of magical boredom, where all the events are lame as fuck, and everyone wins because actually Tatsuya helped them! All hail Tatsuya!

Now, this new season, is even worse! Why is this remake just redoing the events of the original from a slightly different perspective?

What perspective, you ask?

The Honor at Magic Academy 05 — Preserving Privilege Through Violence

You can tell a lot about someone by what perspective they choose to view things from. As a Christian, I believe that God always sides with the poor and the oppressed, and so should we. And who does the author of Mahouka side with? The most powerful people in the country, the children of the elite, at the top school, who monopolize violence through the use of magic while they whine about how they are the victims.

“Terrorists” in Mahouka are angry about how the non-magical people are treated. Why would this be? Mahouka doesn’t tell us, since not a single character of consequence is from one of these marginalized groups. But we can guess. We’ve observed these high school magicians enforce their opinions through almost casual violence. What do you think the adults do? I’m sure there is tons of abuse of the non-magical by the magical. Even between magical, you clearly know if you’re from a good family or not, and power and wealth are largely hereditary. It would suck to be a non-magical person in this universe. I would have to side with the “terrorists”.

Ah, the classic “both-sideisms”. As she benefits from being a scion of the elite, she thinks that both the powerful and the oppressed have something to say. If only they could stop arguing, and all agree to maintain the status quo where she continues to stomp on the backs of the oppressed without consequence!
