About The Irregular at Magic High School Set 1 Blu-ray
The Irregular at Magic High School Set 1 contains episodes 1-7 plus a special booklet and collectible pin-ups, all housed in a box illustrated by character designer Kana Ishida.
Magic - a century has passed since this concept has been recognized as a formal technology instead of the product of the occult or mere folklore. The season is spring and it is time for a brand new school year.
At the National Magic University First Affiliate High School, a.k.a Magic High School, students are divided into two distinct groups according to their academic performances. The "Blooms," who demonstrate the highest grades, are enrolled in the First Course, and the "Weeds," who have a poor academic record, are enrolled in the Second Course.
This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students. The brother is an underachiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a Weed, while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a Bloom. The brother with a somewhat philosophical disposition and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him... Ever since these two entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus has begun to change.

The Goddess of Brother Complexes
by Valkyrie 03 -
So joking title aside, I feel that this is one of the most well written and visually appealing anime that I have come across in a while. The story follows Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba. A pair of siblings who can use magic and the time that they spend going to a Magic High School. It manages to pass up most of the tropes that you typically see in anime like this and feels like a fresh story.
As for the product itself; it may be expensive, as all aniplex titles are, but I feel that it's well worth the price. The packaging is high quality and the inserts that come with it are a great addition to any anime collection.
The only quip I have is that there seems to be a line missing from the subtitles in episode 1. It's still rather easy to understand as you only miss out on 4 words, one of them being onii-chan.
Aside from that this is an amazing box set and I highly recommend this anime for anyone with an interest in fantasy and magic.
A well deserved harem.
by Tsor, God of Tsunder
Main character is absurdly overpowered in this show. Tall, handsome, unflappable manner, reserved, prodigious talent and world class intellect, he is the coolest guy in town and all the ladies can't get enough of him. Especially his sister. While she is a raging bro-con through and through...he is a closet sis-con. Which is kind of an interesting dynamic.
It is an enjoyable show, although there is never anything that really threatens the main character. A second season would be welcome as the entire thing feels like one big set up to something more important.
Interesting introduction to a new Magical System
by AngryTownsman -
We get a nice introduction to a world with a magic system governed by scientific rules. We are introduced to the Shiba siblings the main protagonists of the series. This world has some discrimination issues between Magicians and regular people and among the ranks of Magicians themselves. We see this played out to a violent degree in this first volume.
The Blu-Ray is the usual Aniplex awesome with nice additions and art cards in the box.

This series has very good animation effects the the fighting sequences are all top notch and the story is also great really needs & deserves a 2nd season, I really recommend it.
A great series, but lackluster execution for the localization
This is a great series and well worth the purchase if you have the extra money. The only problem is with the lack of apparent effort on the localization by the company. Not only does the company charge a large amount of money for a series lacking an English Dub, but it even lacks both English translation of opening and ending songs as well as karaoke for those same songs. The extras included are nice, but not worth the disparity in price that any other company would charge for the same series. The series itself is great and would have been well worth a dub
this will be my favorite for a while

my favorite anime since I watched it streaming online. as soon as act 3 was released on bluray, I ordered this series. even at aniplex's price, I was gonna own this one. the animation is great, the music is amazing, the va is well done, and its a really good story. I even like the first closing song.
