Kids train in a magic academy.
Off to an excellent start! The characters appear to have some depth to them, and there’s enough mystery about who these people are and what they’re hiding that I’m compelled to keep watching. Also it has magic. Magic is cool.
The conflict between the Blooms and Weeds makes things interesting as well. It’s rare to have an anime about people who seem to legitimately hate each other and don’t even bother trying to hide it.
On the worrisome side, the names “Blooms” and “Weeds” are fucking retarded. Also, it takes place in a school. Why does every anime have to take place in a school. It’s especially frustrating in a fantasy show. Even in their wildest fantasies anime creators can’t seem to imagine a world that doesn’t revolve around going to school. Seriously. No one wants to go to school in real life, why would anyone create a fantasy world revolving around going to school. Ugh.
Oh, also, there’s some incest. The girl is in love with her brother. It’s currently at tolerable levels though since the brother treats it as a joke (which he should).
