Irregular At Magic High School Season 3 Episode 1 Was…

Key points for The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 Episode 1 review:

  • The dynamic between Saegusa and Tatsuya continues to shine, providing entertaining interactions throughout the episode.
  • While the episode delivers solid content, the prolonged focus on certain scenes, particularly with excessive fan service, detracts from the overall pacing and enjoyment.
  • Despite pacing issues, the episode sets the stage for intriguing story arcs, offering glimpses into the aftermath of Season 2 and hinting at compelling developments to come.

So I had been looking forward to The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 because I had been told that the upcoming arc is pretty good, and episode 1 just dropped today. Of course, I am not going to judge the whole upcoming arc on this episode alone. But I do have mixed feelings on episode 1. I did enjoy the episode. But man, I wish that sometimes they’d turn down the “girls fawning over Tatsuya” scenes. I will get into more of that in a bit.

So welcome back another first impressions article. Spring 2024 season is just getting started and this week is just the warm-up round. With some bangers scheduled for next week. Today though, we will be talking about The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 Episode 1. So let’s get started.

What do I think of The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 Episode 1?

Let’s just get into the scene I was talking about earlier. The scene started great, Saegusa and Tatsuya have this great on-screen chemistry. Any scene with the two of them in it is entertaining at the very least. They’ll tease each other to no end. Even after that, the introduction of Izumi and Kasumi was handled well. For me though, the scene went on for a little too long after that. The scene took nearly half of the episode and that kind of annoyed me.

Thankfully, the episode aside from the stretching out of that scene was pretty solid. Wish we got a few more hints pointing to what we can expect to see in this arc instead of that long scene. But what we did get was interesting. And of course, I am talking about the first and last scenes of the episode. We also get to see how the events of Season 2 have affected the school in general. We had a lot of changes in the school at the end of Season 2 after all. The ending scene in this episode was particularly interesting though.

Aside from that, hearing Saori Hayami as Miyuki again just feels right. I feel like the series would be incomplete without her. And is it just me or the animations have gotten an upgrade too? It has been a while since I watched this anime but I do feel like the animations in this season are slightly better in quality. Lastly, the new opening theme is a banger as well.

That is all for now!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I did enjoy The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 Episode 1. Just that 1 scene carried on longer than it should have kinda spoiled the episode for me. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
