Might as well they never even adapt it:Mahou Sensou


Good evening~ Slightly regretted watching this one.

Originated from a LN, 11 volumes and still ongoing. Anime lasted for just 12 eps, and it was horrible. They could have make this a 24ep for it to be a hotcake.

Storyline is nice, unique and quite enjoyable. But that was just for the beginning, the middle and the climax. The ending was seriously asking for a beating, what i hate the most, ending without a proper conclusion, the last ep doesnt even feel like one. I have no idea why they do this, 24 ep project cut short or just a heavy cliffhanger for a season 2, or maybe just blalant “Read the novel” move. What they could have done was adapting it for 24-26eps worth since the LN has more than enough material already. Character development is also not enough, it feels a bit bland. One of the reason why i dont really trust Madhouse nowadays. Major regret to even bother watching the anime, sorry guys, for not listening to the warning.

Animation is done by Madhouse, and to be honest, it really good. I have never seen such excellent combat scenes since F/SN, Mahouka, Madoka. Character designs were well done also.

The OP and ED are both equally good, but it felt like a waste. They put so much effort and budget into the music and animation until they have none left for the actual storyline, ugh.

The VAs are pretty excellent. Toyama Nao, Miyano Mamoru, Seto Asami, Suzumura Kenichi, Takahashi Mikako, Tanaka Atsuko, Nanri Yuuka, Okamoto Nobuhiko, Fukuyama Jun, Fujita Saki, Namikawa Daisuke. So much effort put on this also, such a waste.


Story: 6.5/10

Art: 8/10

Music: 9/10

VAs: 9/10

Not really recommended, if you like cliffhangers then go ahead.

  1. Thanks for the post. Completely agree. The character designs were pretty and so I was interested, but I definitely felt it was an advertisement for the source material (and went on to drop it xD).
