Not particularly good at sports, not very popular, and not very good at school, [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Naoki's]] middle school years are filled with video games and erotic books. Little does he know that he is destined to create magic and take over the world in the future. Then he gets DrunkWithPower, decides to [[{{Polyamory}} marry 500 women]], and that gets him thrown out of power and get sentenced to death. With the power of magic, there still is hope, though, and one of his daughters, [[CharacterTitle Iroha]]. goes back to the past in hope of saving her father from this cruel fate.

Yet another screwball action-comedy manga from Inoue Kazurou, the same man who made ''MidoriNoHibi'' and ''Manga/AiKora''. One can read it [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_no_iroha/ here]].

!!Tropes in ''Mahou no Iroha''
* AbusiveParents: Future Naoki is a {{jerkass}} on the highest level to his children when he does pay attention to them. [[spoiler:Subverted that most of it is a ''extreme'' JerkassFacade''.]]
* ActionGirl: All of Naoki's daughters seen thus far.
* AlmostKiss: Naoki and a couple of his [[{{squick}} daughters]].
* AmusingInjuries: Naoki gets hurt quite a bit, and the {{delinquents}} in the first chapter seem no worse for wear after suffering the wrath of Iroha.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Completely averted with [[NakedOnArrival Reika]], which is a little shocking considering that there has not even been a {{panty shot}} or any other real {{fanservice}}y tropes before that.
* AstralProjection: Future Naoki into the past while he is in prison. He's visible, and of the MadeOfAir verity. He can still use magic though and be tangible when he wants to be.
* BadFuture: Played with in an interesting fashion where the EvilOverlord has already been defeated and the future that the time travelers are trying to prevent his eminent execution. [[spoiler:Then it's revealed that ''after'' Iroha returned to the future, she came back because Naoki is fated to found another power, ESP from his horrible life, and repeat the same mistakes that Future!Naoki once did.]]
* BedmateReveal: Oh [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_no_iroha/v01/c002/4.html Iroha]]...

** Anyone facing Future Naoki apparently which makes one wonder how they caught him.

* DrunkWithPower: Naoki in the future.
* [[EvilPlan Good Plan]] A weird version. The typical TakeOverTheWorld plot has been achieved and then reversed before the story even starts. The main plot is the villain's daughter trying to save him from execution by going to the past before any of that happens.

* HealingHands: Iroha knows healing magic as well.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Iroha seems to not understand that she and Naoki are the same age right now and that he may find it strange to [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_no_iroha/v01/c006/7.html bath with her]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Future Naoki
** Might be a JerkassFacade needed for a ZeroApprovalGambit but only time will tell for certain.
*** [[spoiler:[[IKnewIt It is]]. Not for ZeroApprovalGambit but to instigate RescueRomance.]]

* MagicalGirlWarrior: All of Naoki's daughter we have seen thus far.
* MagicalIncantation: Many times.
* MagicWand: Iroha has one.
* MeanwhileInTheFuture: Iroha gets updates on Naoki's upcoming execution date. The further away it is the better she is doing.

** Also the golem Iroha creates it's a girl as well.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Reika.
* OffingTheOffspring: Future Naoki threatens this, but aside from a few nonlethal attacks makes no real attempt to do so. [[spoiler: Until chapter 15. In the end, [[AvertedTrope he didn't mean it all along.]]]]
* OrderedToCheat: Iroha uses her magic to make Naoki be good at sports. Naoki is first over joyed at his sudden success and popularity until he sees the effect it has on the people who acually worked for the ability.

* ResistanceIsFutile: Iroha [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_no_iroha/v01/c001/22.html word for word]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_no_iroha/v01/c001/24.html According to Iroha]] Naoki was this when he first took over the world. [[spoiler:In reality, barring his jerkish phase when he lashed out against the world, is one all along.]]
