What is the plot of The Irregular at Magic High School?
In addition to being widely used in the past, magic has penetrated into today’s world a hundred years ago with the evolving technology and is beginning to be widely used, especially in the military field. Those with magical abilities enter the National Magic Academy and graduate as magical technicians. However, in the entrance exam, their abilities are measured by both a written and a practical exam.
Tatsuya Shiba scores very high on the written exam but fails the practical exam. Although Tatsuya’s technical knowledge is very strong, his executive skills are not sufficiently developed. For this reason, he becomes a second-class student in school, so he is sent to the Weed class. His sister, Shiba Miyuki, becomes a first-class student with her success in both exams and is sent to Bloom class. Although Miyuki is against this classification, Tatsuya says it would be better and accepts the situation. But this class difference and privilege will also affect the relationship between the two siblings in the future. Also, not everyone in the country thinks magic is a good thing, and terrorist groups want to destroy ten magical academies across the country. But against them are our main characters, who are immortal, extremely powerful and constantly growing stronger.

At the end of the second season, we saw Tatsuya and his friends fighting the anti-magic group. We have been informed that The Advancement of Humanity Front is planning an explosive detonation at the offshore tower. Tatsuya, along with Miyuki and Minami, tried to prevent this. Tatsuya repaired the nearly collapsed tower with magic. We also learned that it was Gide Hauge who caused the parasites on Earth.

The trouble-free school life is interrupted by the problems of the elite families. Izumi and Kasumi clash with the newly arrived student representative.
On the other hand, Zhou does not sit still and expands his anti-magic activities and involves the media in his plans. But Zhou’s plan is thwarted when Tatsuya finds the basis for his new powerplant.

Zhou travels to Kyoto to reach an ancient traditional magic society. The National High School Magic Thesis Competition will also be held in Kyoto this year.
