A nice cast, Nomad at the helm (I like what I've seen of their work). And magic is always welcome, so it looks like it might be worth a watch.

The name roughly translate into "Easy to understand Modern Magic"(Modern Magic for Dummies? ). From the description the main character is a first year high school girl. She's short and very mediocre in all academics. Nothing special. But she wants to be a sombody. So she decided to study magic when she found a flyer for magic academy.

I'm guessing hilarity ensues? Haven't read it so I don't know.

I think it's more like magic of the digital age meets magic of the...magical girl variety.

Going to watch this purely for Miyashita Miki's character design/art. HUGE fan of her art style

Opening and ending theme singers and titles confirmed (and once again, it's by Lantis or a branch thereof.)

The OP is "programming for non-fiction" by Natsuko Aso. Her second single after the Shin Mazinger ED this cour.

The ED is "Made in WONDER" by Aki Misato.

Hmm, this could possibly be very interesting.

The trailer was certainly promising. I wonder how serious / comedic this series is? Definitely aimed at guys... Maybe a little like Ultra Maniac it'll subvert the mahou-shoujo genre a bit?

If the author and illustrator's other works are anything to go by, there's a good chance of that.

Yumiko is one of the brightest illimuniated illustrated characters I have ever seen. I'm liking her.... Ep. 00 was interesting, I think I'll keep an eye on this.
