Mahou Sensou was supposed to be an action series based in magic battles. Instead we have a school anime with a super boring love triangle and, Gilgamesh’s long lost brother and a teleport spell that has to be executed inside a stopped car for style points. It is badly written to the point that I had to search on the wikia to actually understand the “Ancestral Magic against other mages in The Living World”. Call me dumb, but the way it works IS quite stupid. It is also very, very, VERY predictble. From the beginning we can see that the realationship with Isoshima is fake, the old owner of his sword and the role of his family members in the story.As I said before, the premise can be interesting, but bad execution really takes me off. Good action scenes are not enough to keep an anime interesting, and I sure didn’t find anything else for me in this series.
