Light Novel: Magician's Academy
Takuto Hasegawa is an Ordinary High-School Student
, but his high school is of a different sort. The Magician's Academy
, a place dedicated to training mages and mystical creatures of all sorts. It is insane
. During a summoning exam, Takuto accidentally summons an insanely powerful familiar in Tanarot, a girl with the mind of a child and enough power to destroy a country. Luckily, Tanarot is loyal to her creator/"husband".Macademi Wasshoi
is very much a Widget Series
. Only two of the cast, at best, notice
how odd the workings of the world are. There are some serious moments, but for the most part it's off the wall comedy fueled by magic and fanboys.
Based on the Magician's Academy
series of Light Novels
and turned into a Twelve-Episode Anime
Those living in North America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Netherlands, Portugal, Middle East, Africa, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines can watch it legally at Crunchyroll.
Tropes in Macademi Wasshoi include:
- Absolute Cleavage: Falce's standard garb makes no attempt to hide her cleavage.
- Affectionate Parody: Episode 5 plays out like an episode out of Evangelion; an angel attacks HQ and blows through their defenses because of its force field. Sakumo even does the Gendo pose with Eneus standing behind him. The difference is that this angel is a Macho Camp that kisses people into mindlessness.
- Affably Evil: For a self-proclaimed Demon Lord, Falce is remarkably polite and friendly.
- Amazon Chaser: When Takuto lists off the qualities of 'the girl in his heart' note , they include 'cheerful' and 'tough'. Fittingly, all three members of his harem are powerful people.
- Animate Inanimate Object: One of Falce's powers is to turn items into living spirits or tsukumogami, mainly because she is the living spirit of an item — a powerful magic staff.
- Anti-Magic: Suzuka involuntarily absorbs all the mana in an area, which makes casting magic impossible for everyone in that area.
- Anything That Moves: Hapshiel. They had to seal him away to get him to stop. However, as the last few episodes show, he genuinely is a caring and loving person... who is a huge, sweaty, kinky freakjob with no concept of personal space.
- A Mech by Any Other Name: The "Golems"
- Art Shift: Between cartoon animation, old school RPG sprite graphics, and claymation censoring.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: Takuto makes a pretty good woman, to the amusement of his own harem...and Eitaro.
- Balance Between Good and Evil: Kept in check because there is an exactly equal number of Good and Evil supernaturals at all times, and always will be due to Creative Sterility. Tanarot could be either one, which would instantly break the balance. During the Climax of Episode 10, the army of Angel/Devil Fetuses that Takuto summons causes the scale to vibrate wildly.
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: Nipples do appear on women (and on Hapshiel), but genitalia do not (and, again, are unfortunately silhouetted in Hapshiel's case).
- Beehive Barrier: Metallis' Energy Shield, as well as Hapshiel's barrier.
- Berserk Button:
- Do not cheat at Moe around Eitaro Sakuma!
- Murdering the harem? BAD IDEA.
- Black Box: Metallis has one in him labeled black box. It contains Love.
- Blue and Orange Morality: Falce is a sentient magical staff, and fully aware of it. Her moral compass revolves around how useful she is to her owner.
- Body Paint: Metallis' idea of a new school uniform — effectively a layer of heavily engineered magical bodypaint. It's chrome colored and 100 percent Fanservice, especially since Suzuho is the one wearing it.
- Cerebus Syndrome: Episode 10 is when things start hitting the fan. The funny doesn't fully come back until the Bonus Episode.
- Chest Blaster:
- Metallis' transformation attempts a Mazinger Z-style Chest Blaster. He runs out of power before executing it.
- Eitaro's Mega-Eneus, a Humongous Mecha built resembling Eneus, has Aphrodite's Breast Missiles.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Suzuho protests with her signs when someone gets too close to her cousin. Suzuka will physically separate you from him.
- Clothing Damage: Gabriel and Agaliarept have torn up sleeves and scarred arms after blocking a particularly powerful spell cast by Takuto to show how powerful he is since the two are effectively the local God and Satan analogues.
- Creative Sterility: Demons and Angels are unable to create things of their own — this includes procreation and any and all creative pursuits. This is one of the many, many reasons they're terrified of Tanarot — she's effectively an artificial Angel/Demon and not bound by those rules, meaning she could upset the cosmic balance if she joins one side or the other. They're actually terrified of Takuto because he can create newborn Angels and Demons at will.
- Ret Gone: The final solution for dealing with Takuto after his breakdown. Fridge Horror when you realize in the alternate universe he was going under severe depression — the proposed solution appears to have been to find a way to modify the past so he would kill himself before creating Tanarot.
- RPG Episode: Complete with little sprites for the characters.
- Saving Christmas: As only Macademi could do, the Christmas episode involves a Chain of Deals, harem infighting in skimpy outfits, Living Toys and a high speed destructive car chase.
- Schmuck Bait: When Eineus's "sister" shows up in episode 9 and vows to defeat Eitarou Sakuma and bring Eineus home, Sakuma lies and tells her that Hapsiel is Sakuma, and that she should defeat him. Each time she comes back, she gradually grows more and more purplish and weaker, and at the end can barely walk out of the room as Sakuma continues goading her.
- Serious Business: Magician's Academy is the only place in the world that puts most of its students through a Death Course to decide the next school uniform. The guy who won the last 2 times cheats and wins again.
- Shapeshifting: Falce can change between all kinds of (generally stick-like) forms. Size is also free game, too — She appears as a pencil in a few episodes, shrinks to around 3 inches tall in another so she can get more enjoyment out of a can of soda, etc etc. Her natural forms are of a cute horned girl, and a magic staff that looks like it belongs in Phantasy Star Online.
- Slasher Smile: Synclavia and Miyabi were very happy to get some help working on the Doujinshi.
- The Slow Path: Alt!Takuto spends 40 years researching what appears to be biological engineering to recreate Tanarot in the universe he gets stuck in without magic.
- Split Personality: Suzuka, Suzuho's other side, known as the Midnight Blue Vampire. Her very appearance cancels all magic in the area.
- Tanarot's standard outfit barely qualifies as pants.
- Falce's always wearing an open robe that exposes her panties and her entire cleavage.
- Stalker with a Crush:
- Metallis to George and later, Suzuka. Unlike other examples, he is regularly seen talking directly to her and the two are on good terms.
- Fermi has a number of starlingly naughty fantasies about her boss, Agarept.
- Suicide By Hero: Falche, whose creator died before giving her a name or a purpose in life. She wants a reason to live, and since she can't find one, she decides to borrow one from the manga she had nearby: a Demon Lord's purpose — namely, dying to the hero in a fantastic final battle. She gets better, and decides to support Takuto as her purpose in life.
- Superpowered Evil Side:
- Downplayed with Suzuka. She's not evil at all but she is significantly more aggressive and dangerous then Suzuho.
- Overlaps with Superpowered Good Side, since Sakuma is undoubtedly a good guy, but his real identity as the The King of Poison, Samael clearly proves he is not the kind of person you would want to mess with even if you're God's Left Hand, Gabriel or Satan's Right Hand, Agaliarept themselves, something they discover quickly.
: If you want to stop me, you'd better bring Lucifer!
- Note however that he was absolutely powerless against Hapsiel, he used a demon summoning spell that launched a beam that created a sphere of destruction even after removing hapsiel's shield and all it did to Hapsiel was arouse him!
- Do not make Takuto upset or he will awaken as the 'holy mother' and spawn monstrous and unaligned divinities that will wreck your shit no matter who you are.
- Sufficiently Analyzed Magic: This has already happend; that's why there's a school that teaches magic as if it were mathematics.
- Surprise Santa Encounter: In the final episode, the school's principal is this.
- Surreal Theme Tune: The OP goes right into insanity mode and barely makes sense.
- Taking the Bullet: Tanarot to Takuto. She got better, but not in time for Takuto to find out before his freakout.
- Talking with Signs: Suzuho, most of the time, because she can't talk.
- The Power of Love:
- Metallis' backup power source, alongside a car battery. ... Mostly the car battery.
- What allows Tanarot to save Takuto, and the both of them to return to reality afterwards.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: Metallis, the previously-mentioned Chew Toy, gets a chance to shine when he falls in love with Suzuka, and ends up saving the day in spectacular fashion. Whatever the universe had against Metallis transfers onto George.
- Those Two Guys: Futaba and Hazuki, Takuto's two friends in the outside world.
- Too Hot for TV: But not when it comes to claymation.◊
- Too Kinky to Torture:
- Hapshiel. The only reason he stayed bound for 20 years was the seal aroused him so much he didn't want to remove it.
- Agarept's lovesick maid Fermi lives for her master to punish her with his lightning bolts.
- Too Spicy for Yog Sothoth: When Trincia suggests that Gabriel take Hapshiel back to Heaven, she acts like she doesn't see him. There is no possible way she couldn't see him.
- Torpedo Tits: Mega-Eneus has them, as an Aphrodite A parody.
- Tsundere: Lampshaded. A pair of magically enchanted bunny-ears cause whomever's wearing them to act Tsundere no matter what.
- Two-Teacher School: Or two and a half. Professor Stein and Professor Sagami are the only teachers we see. Sakuma seems to be an associate professor but he doesn't teach any classes.
- Unrequited Love Switcheroo: Happens to George and Metallis after the latter falls for Suzuka.
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: On the viewer. That shapely body in the shower at the beginning of episode 2? Takuto.
- Unwanted Harem:
- Takuto has Tanarot, Suzuho and Falce. Their fighting worries him and their advances scare him.
- Since Eitarou wants his, it's more of a Paid Harem.
- Verbal Tic:
- Tanarot ends all her sentences with "-nano de aru".
- Suzuho is told to use "-puru" but it doesn't take.
- Wham Episode: Episode 10, or more specifically, the last 5 minutes of Episode 10. Tanarot is greviously injuried, Takuto freaks out, unaligned divinities spawn out of nothing, and the following episodes show a truly serious plot.
- Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: Multiple times, especially when people notice Hapshiel for the first time. Not funny at all when Takuto does it at the end of Episode 10.
- Widget Series: This series has lectures on moe, RPG jokes, and a long running Little Bit Beastly apprecation.
- Wizarding School: Apparently of the Discworld, "Keep them busy so they can't do any harm" variety.
- You Are What You Hate: George spends the first few episodes freaking out because Metallis keeps coming thiiiiiss close to confessing to him... and then the rest of the series trying to win him back.
- Zettai Ryouiki: The mundane school has these as a part of the girl's uniform. Occasionally, they will also come up in the fetish outfits that Sakuma cooks up.
