This anime has been such a surprise so far. I thought it’d be another one of the many isekais in this season but, no. It is far better than that. Funnily enough, we haven’t gotten our mandatory previous life flashback yet in this anime. In fact, 5 episodes in, the only reason we know it is an isekai is because of the title. Regardless though, Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou is an awesome anime.
So welcome back to another one of my mid-season reviews. Today let’s take a look at Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei. I have to admit, I am quite happy seeing yuri in “mainstream” anime. Looks like the success of LycoReco really changed something in the industry. Thankfully though, that is not all this anime has to offer. It is by no means a simple yuri-bait, it is actually decent. So let’s get into the details.
What do I think about Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou so far?
Starting off, I think it is kind of cool that we haven’t gotten the isekai mandatory flashback to the MC’s previous life till now. In fact, Anis hasn’t even said anything that hints at anything about a previous life. I like this because now whenever we do get out mandatory flashback, it will feel more worthwhile because the series has been building up to it. OR, they can choose to let it be unknown to leave it open to interpretation, promoting more discussions. Both ways work fine.
After that, there is the world-building aspect I love. Anis can’t use magic by default like others around her so she has basically dedicated her life to try and use magic, somehow. In the process, she basically created a new branch of science called Magicology which can “imitate” magic pretty well. She goes into quite a bit of detail as to how Magicology works and it is quite interesting for sure. I hope we get more details on the proper magic system itself down the line.
Then finally [MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD] we have the awesome episode 5. Episode 5 was amazing. The ending of that dragon fight was especially grim and nebulous. That has the potential to be a great plot point going forward. The fight was pretty well handled too, I wish the animations were smoother but at least the art style looks really really cool.
In short, I am glad that this anime didn’t end up as simple yuri-bait and is actually fairly decent in terms of the plot. As things stand, it easily gets an 8/10. Pretty sure I gave it a similar score back in the first impressions article. I think it will stay an 8 at this point. Cause the jump from 8 to 9 is pretty high in my terms. Anyhow, I am really excited to see the implications of the ending of episode 5; that whole sequence came out of nowhere, and should be fun to see how it carries out later on.
Those were my thoughts and opinions on Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei. Let me know yours down in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!!
