''Magician's Quest: Mysterious Times'', known in Europe as ''Enchanted Folk and the School of Wizardry'' and in Japan as ''Tongari Boushi to Mahou no 365 Nichi'' (とんがりボウシと魔法の 365にち, lit. "365 Days of Pointy Hats and Magic") is a fantasy adventure and life simulation game for the Nintendo DS where players are tasked with attending classes in a Magic Academy, to learn the mysteries of magic and the art of casting spells, while building relationships with other students. As well as doing the general sort of "chill out" things one does, you know--buying clothes, gardening, playing the saxophone, hanging out with your best friend the [[CartoonCreature anthropomorphic cupcake.]]

Of course, being that this world is ''magical,'' there's more to it than the sort of usual life-simmy things. At certain times, known as "Mystery Time," the magical world and the spirit world cross over, and the world is flooded with mysterious creatures, plants, and events. And in order to become a ''really'' great wizard, you'll also have to help the various magical creatures who cross into the "real" world with their various problems.

This game has two sequels released in Japan, one of them in which you have to run a ''shop'' as well as do your schooling duties.
They have recently released a 3DS version that combines all features of the game and its sequels into one game. [[NoExportForYou Of course, its only available in Japan.]]

This game features examples of:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: Daisy at the flower shop. Unlike Roley, who has "proof" of being nonhuman (his sister is a dressmaker's dummy with wheels instead of legs), the most nonhuman thing about her is that her head resembles a watering can... but it could just be an [[NiceHat elaborate hat.]] Some of your classmates are this as well, such as Grace, who has bluish skin but otherwise appears normal, and the "sundae girls," who are either regular girls with crazy costumes, or [[AnimateInanimateObject anthropomorphic ice cream.]]
* AnInteriorDesignerIsYou: Not only can you decorate all the dorms, but you can also furnish the garden on the roof with plants and furniture.
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: There are 12 houses in your town, but generally only 11 residents.
* AnimateInanimateObject: As mentioned under CartoonCreature, some of the students and townsfolk are these.
* ArtificialAtmosphericActions: You can sometimes tell what they're talking about by reading the small bubbles over their head.
* ArtificialStupidity: Some [=NPCs=] will comment about warm weather/sunny days....at night...
** While AIs will move out of a player's way if they will collide on stairs, they will refuse to budge if you try to get through the stairs when the player character is behind them.
*** [[WhatTheHellHero Then they get angry at YOU for shoving them, even though they were supposed to move out of the way.]]
* AttractMode: If left on the title screen, screen blanks out and shows what random townsfolk do while you are away.
* BoysLove[=/=]GirlsLove: While you can normally only be "Best Friends" with members of your own sex, it is possible to achieve a relationship others call "[[CannotSpitItOut bound by a strong connection]]", which is implicitly this.
* CampGay: Roley the hairdresser.
* CartoonCreature: Some of your fellow students and townspeople are {{Funny Animal}}s, such as bears, cats, and sheep. Others are... ''other'' things, like plants, fruit, desserts, and goodness knows what else. One of the standard [=NPCs=], Piquard, is a ''light bulb.''
* ChasingYourTail: The "Captain Dot" mini-game requires you to attack him from behind after he tries to attack you.
* ChastityCouple: Played literally and subverted at the same time. Inspite of a boyfriend/girlfriend being an aspect in the game, the player character will never hug OR kiss their beloved in the game. In fact, all a relationship does is make the new lover talk to you more frequently, ask to play more, and say loving things to you. Possible shoutout to an internet meme?
** No touching. Ever.
* ChristmasCake: Whenever you visit Limelight by yourself, Marcy will tease you about "not ending up like [her]." Also, if the conversations are anything to go by, Ms. Strawe is the same way.
* CombinatorialExplosion: Your chances of figuring out a spell on your own without looking in a guide or going to class are very, ''very'' tiny given the amount of magic runes available.
* CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption: There is a limit of 2 Best Friends and 2 boyfriends or girlfriends in the game. This is a problem, as a title can be given if 10 people confess to you through this way. This forces the player to break up with fellow [=NPCs=] in order to get 100% completion in the game. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Ten times.]]
** In order to break up with a boyfriend/girlfriend/Best friend, friendship must be at a negative value. This means that one would have to constantly cast prank magic or openly "cheat" on them by playing with other [=NPCs=] in front of them. There is no other way to break up with them.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Some villagers, inspite of not being human, can look human quite well, even the males.
** Demi-human NPC villagers are especially this.
* CutscenePowerToTheMax: When you fight Captain Dot, you defeat him with an enormous lightning bolt spell you can't use anywhere else. Even the "lightning" spell you eventually get is fairly tame in comparison.
** Justified: Mr Oakley explains that the more evil the target is the more powerful the lighting spell becomes.
* DropTheWashtub: The Metal Basin spell, which drops one onto the affected NPC/player, making [=NPCs=] forget what they were doing.
* EenieMeenieMinyMoai: The "Human-Faced Fish" found only in Mystery Time has a Moai statue for a face.
* FarSideIsland: The Island. Although it is larger than usual, having enough room to comfortably run around, there's still only one tree there. It ''is'' where Captain Dot hides out, though.
* {{Fartillery}}: Yes, you can learn a spell to make people fart. It also makes ghosts fart and launch themselves into the air, never to be seen again.
* FishingMinigame
* FlyingBroomstick: Broomsticks are the transportation du jour in this world, of course. Or at the very least, staves with one flared end are. Amusingly, even the "Taxi Cab" that takes you to the Island is shaped like an enormous "broom."
* FollowTheLeader: Yeah, OK, it's essentially a riff on ''AnimalCrossing.'' But one wonders why it took so long for someone to take a stab at it.
* FungusHumongous: Fungi Forest.
* GayOption: ''Sort'' of, since it is possible to have a "bound by a strong connection" relationship with a same-sex classmate. Other students treat this relationship as romantic.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Not ''only'' is there bucketloads of HoYay and LesYay, but hairdresser Roley is ''Un''{{ambiguously Gay}}. It's possible to have a conversation with him at [[MyLocal Limelight]] where he talks about meeting the "man of his dreams."
* GreenAesop: The "Mokele-Mbembe" mystery has the titular creature become a sludgy, frightening beast because people were dumping trash in the river. After it's over, all your classmates discuss how they should take better care of the environment.
* HundredPercentCompletion: Two variations, one for completing all mysteries and another for collecting all wizard titles
* IdolSinger: Some types of your classmates want to become them. Or even believe they are!
** Is actually name of a personality for female students. The male variation is called narcissistic.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals
* InterspeciesRomance: Unless your town has one of the rare "human-looking" [=NPCs=] (it's never outright stated exactly ''what'' they are), this will probably be the fate of the PC and whoever they end up with. (It happens between the other townspeople, too.)
* {{Kappa}}: One mystery has you befriending one.
* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: Some of your classmates actually look like they ''could'' be human, just with ImpossiblyCoolClothes. Some of them are definitely animals, though.
* MadLibsDialogue: Text-based, but still essentially the same idea. It's a bit imperfect, too, leading to your townpeople occasionally spouting gibberish like "I heard that '''[[RainbowSpeak Troper]]''' and '''Freya''' a hero."
* MookBouncer: The ghosts in the Haunted House.
* MyLocal: Limelight. Although they mostly serve juice.
* OffScreenTeleportation: In some areas, leaving and entering will make [=NPCs=] teleport back to their home, only to exit the home and walk back.
* PlanetHeck: The Hellhound mystery has you going to Hades, who is located in the underworld, to escort the creature to.
* PrincessesPreferPink: A variant, as the "Princess" themed furniture is all pink.
* PublicDomainSoundtrack: Most of the overworld music riffs on classical pieces, such as "Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairies," "Beautiful Dreamer," and others. Most of the original compositions are available as music for you to play in your room or on an instrument... but there's a ''lot'' of those.
* RealityWarper: The Mystery door in the dorm room.
* RelationshipValues: You can get both "best friends" as well as a "boyfriend/girlfriend," though some contexts will treat both best friends and boyfriends/girlfriends [[GayOption the same way.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The Kesaranpasaran, a pink puffball creature found only in Mystery Time.
* SaveScumming: Lampshaded and averted. You're warned the first time by Reginard that closing the game without saving goes against rule 99 in school regulation (even if the game freezes). If you do reset the game (by means mentioned above) without saving, expect said NPC to force you into cleaning.
** At least it is less annoying than [[AnimalCrossing a certain NPC that rants on for a long time for not saving.]]
** This may be a glitch, but after not saving the 5th time and on, you will clean the classroom every time, [[LostForever never going back to cleaning the bathroom, lounge, or attic]]
** This might also be in effect due to one mystery that involves guessing which one of 3 gnomes are telling the truth. If you miss, you'll have to wait until you go through ALL of the mysteries to try again.
* SealedEvilInACan: And you can talk to him! He seems disgruntled, and he has an EvilLaugh.
* SliceOfLife:"...With Magic!"
* [[SpeakingSimlish Speaking Animalese]]: Everything that talks speaks this, even non-animal [=NPCs=].
* StalkingMission: The Ogre's minigame requires you to catch him without being seen yourself.
* StockUnderwear: Captain Dot has the "polkadotted boxers" version.
* StopPokingMe: Slightly subverted, as talking to an NPC too many times will make them create an excuse to stop talking to you for a little while.
* TalkToEveryone: You actually get a reward if you talk to everyone, every day, for a set number of days.
* Tsundere: The Dullahan mystery has you dealing with a Tsun head. As you tutor it more, it warms up to the player character.
* TokenHuman: Every NPC is a FunnyAnimal, inaminate object, or mythological creature. Only player characters are human.
** There are a few demi-human NPC villagers in the game, though.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://enchantedbros.wikidot.com/ It has one]]
* VideogameCaringPotential: It's hard not to dote on some of the classmates. And they can dote on you back, too!
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Shock 'em, embarrass 'em, ''hit them with giant metal basins from god knows where'', you can do it all!
* VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: Pranking more than one person at a time per week will cause rumors about you "troubling everyone by always pulling pranks," causing a slight decrease in everyone's friendship upon questioning.
* VirtualPaperDoll: Different hairstyles, accessories, hats, shirts, pants, skirts, coats, and dresses are all available.
* VerbalTic: all NPC villagers have their own one-liners during conversations.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: The player character can become this as skirts can be worn by any gender and haircuts are available for any gender, whether its male or female.
* XMeetsY: The game is frequently described as ''AnimalCrossing'' meets ''Franchise/HarryPotter''.
* WhatTheHellPlayer: Not only does it get on you for resetting, if you use certain spells (such as the "lightning" spell) outside of the contexts they're ''supposed'' to be used in (in that case, punishing people who use mischevious spells on you), you get in trouble.
** In a hilarious subversion, the PRINCIPAL of the boarding school you're attending will actually award you for using "prank" style magic (lightning, farts) 100 times ''in the same way he awards academic achievements.'' Paraphrased:
-->Here is your reward. NOW DON'T DO IT AGAIN.
** Subverted again in order to get the title Forgetful Wizard (forget to save four times), which is needed for 100% Completion.
* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: Shade's sidequest. "Hello. I am a former EvilOverlord who was [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned here]] by a good wizard! But, uh, I wanna be good now, so please help resurrect me!" ...Rrrrright. (And you can ''do it more than once.'')
