Absolute banger of a line; kudos.

Gonna echo that kudos; that’s a great line!
I’m definitely going to wait for reviews of subsequent volumes before checking this out; it sounds like it could be cute but it might be just annoying. Curious: does Haruka have to dress up as a girl because only girls can do magic in this world, or is he just a muggle who’s childhood friend happens to be going to an all girls’ school?

Isn't that yuri? Hell, illustrators love two-girl covers so much that it's the third or fourth time I've confused the genre over the cover.

Thanks, guys! Very Happy

I don't think they said it outright (or I'm blanking if they did), but the implication is that only girls can do magic. So that may add another trope to the bundle for this series - boy who can do what only girls can.

This gives me strong Strawberry Eggs vibes, where the plot indirectly proved that the quality of a person as a worker does not depend on their gender. It also gave the occasional message that gender-neutral love is also possible.
