Magic Technicians (in short, Magicians) are nurtured through Magic High Schools and Universities.
This is a story about:
A defective elder brother low achiever.
A perfect, flawless younger sister high achiever.
After both siblings entered a Magic High School,

The Dengeki published volumes were edited, supplemented with more text on some occasions, and overall improved over the web versions.
The web novel consisted of only 6 web chapters written covering the First Year arc, and the author has already planned for a total of 15 web chapters to cover the entire three years of Magic High School. As of August 2011, web chapter 1 has been been compiled into volumes 1 and 2, and as of December 2011, web chapter 2 has been compiled into volumes 3 and 4. The author expects the series to be compiled into a total of 20 to 25 volumes (ie. if Dengeki allows him to finish the series) [SOURCE: Author's tweet on 6-Nov-2011, #dengeki_mahouka]
Volume 5 will be a special chapter that has never been released on the web.
This series debuted in "This Light Novel is Amazing 2012" rankings at the rank of 29.
Volumes 1 and 2, published in July and August 2011 respectively, made it into the top 50 sales ranking on Oricon for the year 2011 (to be precise, from 22-Nov-2010 to 20-Nov-2011), at the ranks of 36 (99,047) and 42 (88,743) respectively.

Here are the covers from volume 01 to 04.



I really like the art of the series, it's gorgeous.

AlaAlba 2012-01-15 10:19

Ishida Kana apparently draws illustrations for several magazines like Newtype, so people here would likely be familiar with her drawings

another pics
I really like the uniforms, esp girls' :p not a sailor fuku but it looks really nice.

surerman 2012-01-15 10:47

larethian 2012-01-15 11:02

Besides me, I know Suiri Megami Alice, Allen, and n0m@n also follow the series. But if they start talking about stuff beyond volume 2 without spoiler tags, I'd have to avoid the thread.

AlaAlba 2012-01-15 11:24

and add me to that list larethian :p also I'll use spoiler tags :D

Looks interesting, what is the relation to the similarly names title, 魔法科高校の劣等生?

AlaAlba 2012-01-15 22:03

aah sorry I put that wrong :p (too much ctrl + c is not good I guess xD)
the title for this thread should be 魔法科高校の劣等生, fixed it.

and also, 魔法科高校の優等生(mahouka koukou no yuutousei) is a spin off manga that will out start this year(still don't know when) on Dengeki Daiou magazine with Miyuki, the sister as its main character.

you're not alone...
Warlock radar already detected huge input in Google search engine with this series name or protagonist name as keywords since 15 days ago:D
mostly from China ISP address :D

hmm...look like anime version wont be a long achieved dream hahahaha:D
----------------------------------------------

err...there's two volume right?, why I can't find any 1 who share the 2nd?:confused:

Undertaker 2012-01-16 11:29

China ISP, that means the translators there are probably already working on it.

The official release might still be a while consider Taiwan and Hong Kong usually don't act until there are 5-7 books and then they play catch up.

AlaAlba 2012-01-16 11:59

^ do the chinese also have their own version of bakatsuki then?
or do you mean it's the legal release?

would like to add something on that. Tatsuya is just like Layfon minus the emo useless part :D I dropped that novel because my emo meter couldn't hold any longer and emo-layfon is keep getting further and further off the main conflict, he is now not the mc isn't he, leerin is. :p

maybe not layfon as I thinking again about it, cause Layfon is really weak xD
