Description:
In a world where magic exists but only for people who can remember their past lives the guy that can remember TWO past lives is king. The story starts with Moroha Haimura falling flat asleep during the opening ceremony to the Akane Private Academy where the mages of Japan are trained. Tests have revealed that Moroha has the ability to use magic and see his past life that can teach him to use the magic but he can’t remember his past lives yet. He gets a rude awakening by Satsuki Ranjou but it turns into a blessing as her appearance makes him start to remember…This one is actually a pretty good action show and may deserve a higher score, but I’m taking a point off for a weak, obvious ending. It ends, which is better than a lot of other shows I’ve seen but they leave a lot on the table, so a second season is possible eventually.

Dislikes:
Overpowered Main Character, no real sense of consequence, and a weak obvious ending hurt this one overall.

Likes:
Moroha isn’t a wimp. He’s also active, and even though this show has a harem feel going on, I think that he’s already decided on which girl is ‘the one’. Once that becomes known I think all hell is going to break out among the women and THAT would make for an interesting half dozen episodes.

Recommendation:
Watch. If you are in the mood for something rather light and shallow this one can entertain you for a few hours.
