「この奇跡は兢々」 (Kono Kiseki wa Kyoukyou)
“This Miracle Trembles”
Horrific card battles where girls battle it out to make their impossible wishes come true–perhaps. There are only hints of darkness so far, along with characterization and plot that is just a tad uneven.

Happy endings are worth fighting for.
After its first season, some said the Magi anime didn’t deserve the second season it was getting. If so, they made good of the chance they were given. From story to animation, character development to action, from heart-wrenching tragedy, complex villains, lots of Extreme Magic, and a climax that built on everything that came before it, the anime found redemption.
This is a finale snapshot, so spoilers ahoy! Feel free to read if you don’t mind being spoiler though, because I just might convince you that you need to watch the second season.

「敵は女子高生にお任せあれ！」 (Teki wa Mesukousei ni o Makase Are!)
“High School Girl Fights the Enemy!”
Suddenly, one of the webcomics I read has a 5-episode anime short series. Surprise!

「魔導検警機構」 (Madou Ken Kikou)
“Magical Security Organization”
Even perverts have honor, and enough power to obliterate school buildings when they’re angry, apparently. And then they do something stupid and get slapped in the face, hah!

「レディ・ジャスティス Sword and Scales」 (Redi Jasutisu Sword and Scales)
“Lady Justice Sword and Scales”
For some reason I briefly tricked myself into believing bad-ass cop woman was the MC before being hit with a good dose of “wake up, it’s the Moe Era. Also, you read the Winter Preview, baka.”

「人類皆征服」 (Jinrui Kai Seifuku)
“Conquer All Humans”
Boy meets little girl. Little girl wants to conquer the world. Boy joins little girl. Tanks get blown the $@&% up. This show is ridiculous and interesting, I’m just not sure whether the crazy setup works with the quasi-serious tone.

「真夏の魔法少女」 (Manatsu no Mahou Shoujo)
“Midsummer Magical Girl”
Mahou Sensou‘s first episode leaves much to be desired. There’s potential, but the series is fighting an uphill battle.

「File-01 コロンブスの卵」 (File-01 Koronbusu no Tamago)
“File-01: Egg of Columbus”
I love a good mystery and there haven’t been that many lately that blew me away. I’ll definitely stick around to see what’s in store…

「風間一派だ！」 (Kazama Ippada!)
D-Frag is a zany boke & tsukkomi comedy about one guy surrounded by a lot of crazy girls. Crazy guys too. Pretty much everyone is nuts but the one guy, and so far it’s funny!
