The seasons have changed, and it will soon be the second spring. The poor student older brother Tatsuya and the honor student younger sister Miyuki have finished their first year at their magic high school, and are on their spring break. The two go to their villa on the Ogasawara Island archipelago. After only a small moment of peace, a lone young woman named Kokoa appears before them. She has abandoned the Naval base, and she tells Tatsuya her one wish.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (The irregular at magic high school) began as an online novel series written by Tsutomu Satou that ran from 2008 till 2011 for a total of 6 volumes. The supernatural school series was then picked up by Dengeki Bunko and under their imprint since July 2011 – with Kana Ishida illustrating. To date a total of 19 volumes have been published, the latest on March 10th. The series was adapted into an anime series during the Spring 2014 season for a total of 26 episodes; produced by Madhouse (Death NoteHellsing Ultimate) and directed by Manabu Ono (A-Channel, Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon).

Here is the series synopsis:

Magic has been recognized and analyzed over the last century. What was once the realm of folklore and tales is now a formalized practice and applied science. And magicians—those capable of using magic to its fullest potential—hold the power to change the world on every conceivable level.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows Tatsuya Shiba, a magician who excels at magical combat and technical knowledge, and Miyuki Shiba, his sister and the heir of the Yotsuba family who Tatsuya is assigned to protect, as they begin their first day at a school for magicians known as First High School. However, the school segregates the students based on their entrance exam scores, with the best students (known as “Blooms”) being assigned to First Course and the worst students (known as “Weeds”) being assigned to the Second Course. Due to the exams not accounting for his talents, Tatsuya is placed in the Second Course, making him an irregular student within the magic high school.


The Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei anime film, Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Hoshi wo Yobu Shoujo, will release in Japan in Summer 2017. More information about the movie will be revealed at a later date.

    Wish have a 2ND Season ;D . and a mysterious girl is also cute and adorable

    1. if this is what I think it is (being a prequel to the series explaining the “Demon of Okinawa” reference made by no head dragons) the “mysterious girl” is little miyuki

      1. It’s not a prequel. The story is set during their second year at First High School.

        1. Correction. The Spring Break before their second year. There’s a gap in the timelines between the Visitor Arc and the Double Seven Arc, so perhaps Satou is trying to canon this movie without badly affecting the series.

          1. yep, looked to me like it was just a recap of the beach episode they skipped over in the series. add a new character and a little more plot and voila.
            double edged sword with this. if it’s successful and the novels pick up on number bought and popularity again, it is easily argued there is no reason for a 2nd season. this movie already helped sell more books. why pay for more animation.

          2. No, no. This movie isn’t just that beach episode (by the way, that episode was part of the Summer Holiday Arc or smth, of their 1st year HS ‘coz Japan is April to March in their school year). I do admit that I personally think there are elements of that arc, though the setting this time is Okinawa, I think, while that beach episode was Ogasawa-something Island. Still, Viola alone could completely alter the plot to a different direction than that episode. Also, they actually skipped the Visitors Arc, BECAUSE LINA IS IN THE MOVIE! LINA! LINA! *Cough cough* Anyways, there are elements of the novel-only Visitors’ Arc in the movie, so this is a true original.

            Also, it’s not really a double edge sword if its sells well. I mean, if the movie sells, together with the decent buying of the light novels, there’s more reason to give a season two. Starting, perhaps, with that Reminiscence Arc, to Visitors (LINA! LINA!)(the movie would be after this arc) and beyond. I hope for S2, and wish to see (and understand w/ subtitles) the movies soon.

          3. I’m not saying the entire beach chapter. Just taking a lot of elements and tying it into a one off kind of story. Honestly, I’m expecting this to kind of be the beach episode smashes head long into Bleach:Memories of Nobody.
            My biggest issue with Lina is she was turned into just another Tatsuya fangirl. I like Tatsuya but damn I get tired of very single girl fawning over one guy in an anime/light novel/manga. I cringe whenever I read the parts were Erica is crushing on him. Lina being yet another one is just to damned annoying. I like Tatsuya but honestly, the guys who talk to girls and flirt with girls are usually the guys who actually get the girls. That silent mysterious stranger shtick doesn’t play as well as they’re trying to make it look.

    2. This is a test to see if they can add on a second season, depending on the sales of this movie will measure to see if there is any hope for season 2 of if its gone for good, but i haven’t seen many hate things towards this anime so chances are good lets just hope Japan agrees

    1. doesn’t anyone else realize that neither of the videos included new footage? Seriously any dipshit with editing skills could pull that off.

    1. You do relize that the japenese release date different than the US release date or any other country, it will probably release around November 2017 but it varies depending on where you live

  2. Pra quem é Br e curte, isso se passa antes do incidente q levou o fim da 1° temporada. Esse filme deve ter como história algumas partes fillers e apresentações de uma possivel segunda sessão.
    Acho q corresponde ao 4° volume da LN.
    Aguardo ansiosamente. Afinal sou fã dessa poha. Huehuehuehue

        1. Tá foda, assisti tantos animes, que está difícil achar anime de boa qualidade , atualmente só estou acompanhando uns 20 animes de temporada e só .

    1. na verdade, isto ocorre depois do fim da primeira temporada se for ser igual quando a Lina chega no japão na novel

  3. can’t wait despite having to most likely wait three + months for a subbed english version release date

    1. I think the subbed englisch version will be out like 4-5 hours after the film
      Edit: like it was with Kimi no na wa

      1. It is not Out… Till this point… Maybe they want to torture us even more…

        1. i heard it wont air in america cause the blood relationship thing like incest this is the most reason it not airing because the movie in sub should been out in america and most countries are agreeing with america because the blood of tatsuya and miyuki.

          1. Hmm… Well, most of the countries are right to do so to stop another abomination like Same Sex marriage to occur in shape of incestuous relationships… But, it’s Anime. And when I watch it, I don’t consider them being Brother & Sister, for me it is like a Women who intensely loves a man and vice versa… What I believe is that somehow it will be like they r not blood related (which looks highly unlikely after LN Vol. 16). I still want the story to end with Tatsuya and Miyuki…

          2. dont we all however in the light novel 16 as cousins however in the others novels before 16 they are brother and sisters so some countries want know are they cousins or brother and sister.

          3. In Vol. 16.. when Maya says that Miyuki is her Daughter, Tatsuya then confronts Maya on Lying to Miyuki as he had already checked to the dna level that they r brother and sister… So they r Siblings. The point being is Artificially enhanced or not, even if they can have children, the only way this will be resolved if the author somehow kills Miyuki and Mayumi and Tatsuya brings her back in some weird way by the Combination of the two.. like Mayumi’s Body and Miyuki’s Soul. This would be weird and I would definitely not like it…

          4. To behonest i dont care about this mostly i care about the movie and a second season of this cause this make my blood boil watching tatsuya being a badass.

  4. m eagerly waiting for mahouka kokukou no rettousei movie…..much more excited….
    miyuki love tatsuya…..lov u both…when will b the movie gonna fire on internet…m waiting…

        1. BlueRay and DVD is Scheduled to be released on 24-01-2018… That’s when we will get to see it..
