Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei Episode 1 (First Impressions): Oh god not more brother complex

Alright, let’s get started with the first impression of the new season. I definitely had high hopes for this show after having read the manga. This show centers around a world where magic has been broken down almost to a science. The main character, Shiba Tatsuya, is an aspiring magic technician who is accepted into a prestigious magic school along with his sister Miyuki, a talented magician.

The reason this show intrigues me is almost 80% the main character. I once wrote a story concept that was very similar to this show and Tatsuya is pretty close to exactly the same as the main character I created, a talented student that isn’t recognized for his talent by the school because of the state of the world. He bears the same analytical and tactical approach to the world that I would want in a character.

That being said, my story concept had 100% less brocon, so that would be my major point of concern with this show. I personally have always thought this mechanic adds nothing to a show, but Japan seems to be in a wincest mood right now. That aside, the first episode is a decent introduction and remains consistent with the manga.

That being said, I wanted to point out the brief moment in the opening/ending of this episode that showed a Suzaku look-alike squaring off against Tatsuya. I don’t know much about this character and I find him intriguing. Also, the opening/ending song was very good, though the soundtrack of the episode was relatively underwhelming. Hopefully this show works out, right?
