Going head first into Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, the first thing that drew me into the first few minutes was the fact that magic was explained as more of a produce of science rather than something supernatural. The only gripe I have with this type of reasoning is why is it even called “magic” in the first place? By definition magic is something that is usually some phenomena that can’t be explained in a worldly way — it kind of like calling a computer magical or any other piece of technology. Either way, I was pretty excited to see a science based “magic” and the cherry on top was the fact that it was based in a magical school — which I have a soft spot for, for whatever reason.
