But all hope is not lost, for Takeo finds an [[GenkiGirl eager and energetic]] (though not quite able) student in new club member Sae Sawanoguchi. Seeking to overcome her [[TheKlutz clumsiness and low sense of self-worth]], Sae declares that she will follow in the footsteps of Takeo, and become a powerful magic-user. Will Takeo, Sae, and the rest of the club learn to control their power and become the hope of human-kind? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: wherever the Magic Users Club goes, [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]] is bound to follow!

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: The three main characters: red for Sae, blue for Akane, yellow for Nanaka. The only things keeping the Magic Club from being a full-blown {{Sentai}} are a repeated color in the team (both Takeo and Aburatsubo wear black), the lack of [[SuperSentaiStance posing]], and the fact that the Bell never really attack anyone [[spoiler:(at least until towards the end)]].

* BrilliantButLazy: Akane is one of the more gifted members of the club when it comes to magic, and, spin aside, her spells almost always go well, and very nearly cast magic with only a ''picture'' of the magic wand that is required for said spells. The problem is she's a teenage girl who has her mind on things outside of the club most of the time.

* OnlySaneMan: Nanaka isn't entirely sold on using the magic of the club to fight the Bell, for rather obvious reasons, and is often the one to reign in Sae from her less well thought out actions. However, her loyalty to her friends and her crush on Aburatsubo means she ends up going with it anyways.



* StraightGay: On the other, he's one of the school's star athletes...
* UnskilledButStrong: Sae, on many occasions, shows herself to have the most raw power when it comes to magic. However, she lacks the skill and focus to tap into her full potential throughout most of the OVA and TV series.

*EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Whenever Akane casts a spell on something or someone, the object/person will spin rapidly for a few seconds before the spell takes its intended effect. It's never explained why this happens, and she appears to have no control over it.


* ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing: In episode 5, Akane starts to hiccup, causing various strange things to happen. At one point, she shrinks down, leaving her clothes piled on the club room floor.

* UnskilledButStrong: Sae is incredibly inept at using her magic at first and slowly improve over the course of the OAV and TV series. However, it is constantly noted that her magic is very strongest, possibly the strongest out of any of the main cast.

* RedHeadedHero: While Sae has a long, winding, pitfall-ridden road to get to the point where she is worthy of the "hero" part of this trope, her dedication and belief in her companions pays off in the end when she [[spoiler: frees the world from alien control by turning The Bell into a giant tree]]. While not the protagonist, Aburatsubo also qualifies as one of the most competent members of the magic user's club who often saves the day when the group gets in trouble.
