Mahou Tsukai Tai!
Magic Users Club!

A Parent's Guide to Anime
Rated: PG

Parental Guidance Advised

Reviewed by Don Umali:

Mahou Tsukai Tai! (loosely translated as "I Want to be a Mage" or more commonly, "Magic Users Club") is a slightly ecchi, yet kawaii series. (Though the logo says "Maho", the title is not spelled correctly because without the "u", it means sail as in one of the parts of a boat.) The series is mainly focused on the club magic users that attend Kitanohashi Gakuen (or Kitanohashi High School). There’s Sawanagouchi Sae, the sincere, yet clumsy girl. There’s also Aikawa Akane, who definitely attracts a lot of guys. Then, there’s Nakatomi Nanaka, the real talker, Sae's long-time friend. Next, there's Takakura Takeo, the leader of the group. Finally, there's Aburatsubo Ayanojou, the bishounen who keeps going after Takeo.

For the most part, the series is fun to watch. The characters are a joy to watch. The seiyuu add more fun to the series and the dub is just about as good as the original. The music is nice as well. If you're looking for a silly, light-hearted series, see Mahou Tsukai Tai!

Parent's Guide Rating:

yellow (parental guidance advised)

Violence: Other than the use of magic, there's not much violence here.

Language: There's hardly any foul language to hear.

Sex: Like I said, it is a pretty ecchi series. There is no nudity, but we do see bust gags and Takeo's weird fantasies. Of course, I have already mentioned Aburatsubo-sempai going after Takeo from time to time.
