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
This arc in the original show already made me suffer so much. And somehow the remake made it even worse. Most of this episode consisted of two people standing still next to each other holding a gun as people screamed magical gibberish at the audience.
Not even joking.

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?

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! Continue reading The Honor at Magic Academy 05 — Preserving Privilege Through Violence
Finally a return to the Mahouka we all know and love— where the author seems to have mixed up good and evil, will always side with the oppressors over the oppressed, and loves to stomp on the faces of the oppressed with his boots while claiming he is a victim. I couldn’t contain myself and took way too many screenshots so be warned!
We begin (after some incest stuff) learning about Tatsuya’s meeting with a girl upset about the discrimination faced by weeds. You would think Tatsuya and friends would share in these sentiments— after all, Tatsuya was treated like a Weed and looked down on just a few episodes ago. But nope! Just a problem with the classification— Tatsuya is a superior person with superior genes so he doesn’t actually deserve to be treated like that.
I want to point out how delusional all these people are.
She’s “seriously biased against the Disciplinary Committee”. Why? Because last week, she witnessed a bunch of thugs beat the crap out of her club on the flimsiest of pretenses. But this isn’t a reasonable position, the disciplinary committee hasn’t done anything wrong, she is “seriously biased”.
