The Irregular at Magic High School Overview
The anime is based on a popular web novel series Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōseiby Tsutomu Satō. It was first published in 2008 at the internet novel website Shōsetsuka ni Narō. Eventually, the web novel had been released in light novel format since July 2011 via Dengeki Bunko with Ishida Kana as the illustrator.
The Irregular at Magic High School Plot is described as follows:
In the dawn of the 21st century, magic, long thought to be folklore and fairy tales, has become a systematized technology and is taught as a technical skill. In First High School, the institution for magicians, students are segregated into two groups based on their entrance exam scores: “Blooms,” those who receive high scores, are assigned to the First Course, while “Weeds” are reserve students assigned to the Second Course. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows the siblings, Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, who are enrolled in First High School. Upon taking the exam, the prodigious Miyuki is placed in the First Course, while Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course. Though his practical test scores and status as a “Weed” show him to be magically inept, he possesses extraordinary technical knowledge, physical combat capabilities, and unique magic techniques—making Tatsuya the irregular at a magical high school.

Synopsis: Shiba Miyuki’s classmate Kitayama Shizuku is on her way to study abroad. For magicians, this is normally impossible, since allowing the genes of someone who can use magic outside their home country’s borders is tantamount to giving up national secrets. But it’s allowed to happen in one case-exchange program. And that’s how Angelina Kudou Shields has arrived in Japan from the USNA to study at First High. Around the time Lina arrived in Japan magicians began getting attacked by a mysterious being who leaves his victims drained of blood. Will Tatsuya be able to discover the identity of the “Vampire”?
