The television anime of Tsutomu Satou's Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei (The irregular at magic high school) light novels will premiere next April.
The story takes place in a world in which magic is not a fairy tale, but has existed for nearly one hundred years. In the spring, the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (Magic High School for short) is welcoming its new students, and names the top student with the best grades at the time of their arrival the Bloom (read as “garland” in Japanese), and the student called the Weed is the Bloom's replacement.
Siblings Tatsuya (Yuichi Nakamura) and Miyuki Shiba (Saori Hayami) are designated as the Weed and Bloom, respectively. Miyuki is given the title of Bloom due to her amazing grades, while Tatsuya is given the title of Weed due to his poor magical practical scores. Tatsuya, the young man who always has a farsighted expression, and Miyuki, the young woman who feels far more for her brother than sibling love. Since the day the two entered the gates of the elite school, the establishment's peaceful days have become chaotic.
Manabu Ono (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Saki Episode of Side A) will be directing the anime at animation studio Madhouse. The light novels have 3.15 million copies in print, and ranked as the third top-selling light novel series in Japan this year.
