Editorial Reviews

Haruo Yoshikawa always thought he was your average run-of-the-mill middle school student: Great attendance record, no real plans for the future, and three adorable, loving sisters, Maika, Chiaki and Fuyuno. Perfectly normal, right?

Wrong! What Haruo doesn’t know is that his three sneaky sisters have been keeping him in the dark about a little family secret: They’re all magic users! In the blink of an eye, Haruo’s “normal” life does a 180 degree turn into the insane with the arrival of the enchanting Ayumi, who for some reason seems very interested in turning Haruo into a “real man”…as well as awakening his dormant powers! (Wow! What a witch!) Warning! There’s supernatural slapstick, magical mayhem and great jiggling gobs of fan service galore in the most totally witching series ever: Magikano!

A great addition to any harem collection!

3.0 out of 5 stars Its okay. September 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure what edition the other reviewer had , but my copy was dubbed.
Okay now for my review. The clueless Haruo lives with his three sisters who are witches , along comes Ayumi, another witch, who needs to unlock Haruo's hidden power to lift a curse placed on her.
Ayumi moves in with them which leads to lots of comic moments. The screaming matches between the girls are great with insults flying everywhere.This banter back and forth is one of the high points of the show and at times is almost hilarious.
The problem I have is the feeling that something was missing. I wasn't drawn in eagerly waiting to see what was going to happen next. Don't get me wrong, the episodes up to the last 2 episodes were watchable. They just didn't have that wow factor.
If I could give this show 2 ratings , I would give the episodes prior to the last 2 episodes a 4 star rating and for the last 2 episodes I'd give a 0 and a punch in the face to whoever thought up an ending like that.
I'm serious, this has the worst ending of all the anime I've seen so far. It totally ruined the show for me. It stunk , I mean 'fire the writer' stinky.
So in a nutshell , episodes 1 thru 10 pretty good , episodes 11 and 12 don't even bother watching, which is a disappointment , the show deserved a lot better ending than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for children. September 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Keeping it short, it's a comedy magic type anime in the modern world with witches hiding out among the populace posing as normal people. While this may bring to mind Potter films, this one is definitely not for children. Fan service, language and, in some cases, content may not appeal to parents. For adults I would say it's worth it being a S.A.V.E. edition. It's not the best I have seen but it's at least average and maybe a little above. There is some thought in the storyline which is one of it's saving graces.
Oops, supertitles are quick. Makes for a lot of pausing to read what just zipped by... keep your remote handy.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Gags than Charms September 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Magikano is another of a long line of anime titles Funimation picked up from ADV Films that has been repackaged and assembled into a complete collection release. The show's a pretty wild ride that covers the teenage lifestyle, spell casting, a bit of comedy with sheer wackiness. While properties like this are difficult to neatly classify, there is no denying their unique flair and enthusiasm. But before I get ahead of myself, let's take a look at the cold hard facts, shall we?

Magikano The Complete Series comes in at a runtime of 325 minutes and contains 13 episodes spanning two discs. The discs come packaged in a standard-sized plastic clamshell DVD case.

The show wears an appropriate TV 14 rating due to some slapstick, clothed fan service, over-the-top antics, silly gags and a hint of supernatural tones.

Language options are typical sub and dub, which means the viewer has the choice of running either the original Japanese dialog track (stereo) or an English dub (Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround) and the option of displaying English subtitles beneath either dialog choice.

Extras include textless songs, and a host of upcoming Funimation anime previews.

The story, which comes off much cleaner in action than in pixels, goes something like this: Regular humdrum schoolboy Haruo meets a young witch named Ayumi Mamiya on his way to school one day. Upon discovering the fact that she is capable of casting powerful spells, Haruo hardly has time to recover before realizing that he too is capable of using magic. What's more, not only is he capable but Ayumi needs to teach him how to unlock his secret gifts and quick if the hex that's been placed upon her as a child is to be broken.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated on amazon for some reason. December 12, 2010
By Vrak
Format:DVD
This is very funny anime with a lot of adult humor. Some of the scenes had me laughing so hard my sides hurt. It's up there with other good harem anime. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not much of a story December 5, 2012
By KevinB
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Haruo has always believed that he was an average kid with an average life. That is far from true. He first realizes this when the new girl at school comes to live at his house with him and his 3 sisters. Ayumi, the new girl, is a witch. His 3 sisters are witches as well. They have been keeping many secrets from him. Ayumi has come to try to get him to lift a curse on her. That's pretty much the story line.

This anime is a lot of fun. It's short(13 episodes), but a series of this caliber doesn't really need more than that. This is a typical harem/ecchi series. 1 guy, half-a-dozen cute girls. It's mainly focused on the comedy aspect. There is a story line, but it really isn't important, and it doesn't get going till the end. Even without a good story, the comedy and fun characters make this s reasonably enjoyable series to watch once or twice. I have seen plenty of better harem anime series, but Magikano is fun and worth the few bucks it costs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Magikano:The Complete Series S.A.V.E October 23, 2012
Format:DVD
I personally thought that this series was to mumbled together. It had a weak storyline,stupid and very annoying characters,and it just didn't jive together. The animation was good,but I think that the writers should have tried to come up with a more compelling storyline. I am only giving this series a 2.1 out of 5 stars do to lack of storyline and annoying/creepy characters (one sister in particular has a strange "obsession" with her older brother)...
