Is this show the Japanese Harry Potter?

>suddenly "you're a wizard"
>Ron and Hermione get to come along as well
>off to Hogwarts
>previous war between wizards with a group who wanted to get rid of all muggles
>purebloods are highly regarded over mudbloods
>Voldemort has been hiding for all these years with his Death-Eaters eagerly awaiting his return
>time to pick your wand - oh look at this special one that'll obviously have some super specific connection to someone evil

I've never watched this series but I looked it up and can't help but notice that the main characters are Ryner Lute, Shana the flame haze, Arturia Pendragon and Gilgamesh.
>>
>>100443151

Yes, it is Harry Potter done by japan. They didn't even try.
>>
>>100443436
Only thing they've done differently is shove in a shitty resentful brother and turned the principle into a cliche wise-beyond-her-years loli.
>>
Going to tinfoil this actually. It's a ripoff of UBOS, which was a ripoff of Harry Potter.

So there; a shitty rip off of a shitty rip off. Bam
>>
>>100443334

So it's Harry Potter in the Grail War, guest starring Edgy Gun Shana.

>implying a Canadian show made it to Japan

>time to pick your wand - oh look at this special one that'll obviously have some super specific connection to someone evil

I'm going to guess it's his mother
>>
>>100443797

Does Japan know what a Canada is?

I knew there was something about this show that seemed off.

I don't understand why the bad guys don't just turn everyone into magic people. No more muggles. ezpz.

A miserable pile of mooses loose aboot the hoose
>>
>>100443151
Is there an actual magical school like Hogwarts? If no, it will remain on my "dropped 5 minutes in" list.
>>
>>100444042
It's America-lite.
>>
Reminder even the author hates the anime.
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-16/even-magical-warfare-original-creator-didnt-think-the-anime-was-a-good-idea

Glad I didn't pick it up in time to drop it
>>
>>100443151
the sword belongs to his mom, whom he hates

mui's nii-san is also a good guy working undercover, just like snape!
>>
>>100444179
Yeah, they got to a school (which looks quite British to begin with) in a ruined mirror world.
>>
>>100444304

Thanks to Coppellion that mirror world looked pretty dull
>>
>>100443547
>loli
No she's not.
>>
>>100444295
Wait...so his mom is actually his aunt?
>>
>>100444224
I probably will end up too. I'm just wondering how many more Harry Potter references I can find.
>>
It's ZnT mixed with Shakugan no Shana and a sprinkle of final fantasy.
>>
>>100446973
I felt this immediately, and I wasn't sure if I should be happy or disgusted. I need more Kugyuu.
>>
>>100446973
Agree. I was shocked this anime is being done by Madhouse and not J.C. Staff. The first episode was seriously disappointing though--I actually prefer J.C. Staff's Witchcraft Works this season.
>>
>>100443151
>why does my generic fantasy anime have generic characters and setting?

Jeez I wonder OP.
>>
I'll keep watching for Aiba, I doubt it'll get better though.
>>
>Takeshi Nanase is an ordinary high school boy
>ORDDINARY HIGHSCHOOL BOI HURR

Dropped before even watching it.
>>
>>100449712
>Reading synopsis
Are you new to this?
>>
This show is too chuuni for me.
>>
>>100443676
Which in turn is a ripoff of wizard's hall
>>
>>100444304
>which looks quite British to begin with
Despite the fact that only one NIPPON STRONG city remains. The writing is all fucking over the place, I tell ya.
>>
>>100449406
what's worse is that Witchcraft Works is better animated than Mahou Senshou, even with the shitload of CGI. What the fuck is going no?
>>
In all honesty is this show even decent? Im not asking 10/10 AOTY standards, but am I missing anything, like fun , by skipping this?
>>
>>100451155
It's not fun, it's gone two full circles from bad, to so bad it's good straight back to bad. Don't watch it unless you want to shit on it with us.
