3 episodes in, and “The Irregular Student at Magic High School” is delivering on both its promise. The promise of an irregular, and the promise of a “rettousei.”
Without giving too much away, I can only say that Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei believes in the argument that school assessment tests do not necessarily reflect the true abilities of a student – and in the case of this “poor student,” the tests have seriously done him wrong.
So you’re in for a surprisingly great experience, watching an exceptionally great, poor student. Whatever that means 😉
